I believe this pic doesn't do it justice so wait till final comes out as the back looks like it has both 2 tone textured glass which is thoughtful design for less fingerprints. I just compared Pixel 3, Pixel 2 and HTC One A9. Pixel 3 looks good.
Actually glad that the Pixel 3's design is now professional looking. Pair this with 6GB of RAM and a 256GB storage and I'm sold.

Again as boring as could be, really shame, no new tech or innovations so far. Unless something amazing will be under software

Another year another very very normal android phone with no extra features. Btw, guys the notch is expected. As if you havent seen the list of new feature in android P. Native support~ Dont act shocked.
The back exterior design is atrocious to me, 3 years in and no sale. I'd rather it be glass like the Nexus 4 then the current mashup of materials. Looks and feels sub par in hand.
Normal pixel3 should be good, if only it had tiny bit smaller bezels, but ok.
Size is "perfect" too, I want a compact phone and not these big brick phones.
My next contender is Meizu 16 - smaller one with 5.6", rest of the phones I'm not interested. Maaybe galaxy s9, but its battery is a bit questionable. OST is just average, seems to be around my current galaxy alpha time.. and that is not enough with 4-5hrs.
Anonymous, 28 Jun 2018You buy a phone to impress a date and your friends?No, but the average consumer likes to show off their phones and get compliments. Phones can also be great conversation starters.

After viewing them last night, I keep being drawn to the smaller 3. Screen size is great, fits nice in the pocket and the design is clean. I was open to notch on xl, but no. On the 3, I hope the transition from front to back frames is smoother that last year and that dual sim would tick a box and a non glossy smudge ridden glass back or at at least a mat finish. Looking forward to seeing the developments as they firm as photography is brilliant on my mates Pixel. After last year's debacle, cautiously positive about 3.

You can buy any phone you want, it's your money. But saying that they are simple is so wrong in so many ways. Beautiful is subjective, simple is not that much. I see myself buying a pixel in the future, not now..hoping "notch" phones is just a phase, but if they are ugly like this one I will not defend them in the design department. I'm not superficial I can leave with an ugly design if all the rest is good. If I could join both, better. But again defending it in design department is just wrong. That's my opinion and it worth as much as yours. I will not change yours, just saying the design is really bad in my opinion.

I suppose the Google Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL will have the same single sim only like its predecessors, no sd card slot, no headphone jack, the same small sealed battery and the same 2 year maximum software update support. It will cost upwards of $1000. Cool. Nice to see a role model for 1-2 year planned obsolescence - from none other than the owner of Android: Google.

There is hardly any reason as to why paying premium price for a copycat iphone x clone. I can get the same phone from xiaomi for 500 bucks. The mi8 is a beast i doubt the pixel will be any better, google must be high on their own weed. and damn right the tech youtuber will praise the living sht out of it because good knows why. they all suck on blackberry's, google's and samsung's D!cks too hard
