this will probably still be my next phone however:
4GB ram worries me... is it enough these days?
no Face ID ?? Samsung and Apple have it now but Google still giving you the fingerprint only?
buying an SD845 SoC when the 8150 is just around the corner sucks.
$800 price tag.
Im hoping Google's software is impressive enough to justify this phone.
People are completely overlooking what Google did here. It's an all-glass rear but they made most of it a matte finish. I love this. I hope more OEMs copy it. I hate fingerprint magnets.
Wow... Google followed Fruit phone trend.
Increase the price to USD1500 just for 128gb ram and deep Notch.
Sindroid, 09 Oct 2018128GB is plenty space. You can store your porn on a cheap laptop or OTG storage..It is plenty if all you do on the Pixel 3XL is post melted face beauty mode enabled selfies on Facebook and watch Youtube. If you store offline 4K movies for screen sharing and watching to a big UHD tv screen anywhere you go, if you record 4K videos of memorable events for reliving moments that will never happen again in all its glorious 4K resolution (for screen sharing on your 4K UHD tv), if you want to enjoy your high-quality uncompressed FLAC music collection everywhere you go, if you shoot RAW files to maximize image quality of special occasion photos, if you have a 60GB offline encyclopedia that is always available even when you're offline or out of town, doing some nature trek/hiking, then, 128GB without any micro sd storage expansion is seriously limited and laughable. More so for an obscenely priced Pixel 3 XL phone with no storage expansion, no headphone jack, small battery, no dual sim, etc.
And no, don't tell 4K video enthusiasts and high quality movie and music lovers they should just listen to low quality mp3 and waste data, or record their family/home videos in Full HD instead to save internal storage space. Birthdays, milestones, special occasions, etc. will never happen again! And stop suggesting people should just bring always a tiny thumb drive instead or worse, add more bulk (laptop) and many more things to drop, misplace and lose (external hard drives, thumb drives), etc. Now you see just how crippled Pixel XL3's storage options are!
Why want to compare camera with Samsung Galaxy S9 plus? Should compare to iphone XS Max camera or Huawei P20 Pro camera.
Gsmarena, your Pixel 3 camera unit seems to have noticeably softer corners than the Pixel 2.
Well they now have at least 1 feature that no other flagship has, terrible mono audio in the video recording. Even Apple have finally worked out that most users have 2 ears. At even half this price there is no excuse for it.
AnonD-82756, 09 Oct 2018Why so little battery its pathetic If you happen to buy one, it is just enough for you to buy the next iteration of the product.
Geez.... The thick chin and bucket on the top. That's not even a notch.
Waiting the Huawei trolling, they surely have a lot of material to work with.
just like the iPhone Xs, these phones are really boring and not interesting at all. Time to look towards China again. US manufacturers besides having biased reviews, appears to be tailing behind from China and Korean companies.
skip . these htc designer really should go home . I miss nexus day .
I LOVE how Google recognizes how ugly the Pixel 3 XL is, and how bad consumer reactions are negative.
I thought it was hilarious how throughout the entire presentation, they kept showing the backside of the phone, rarely showing off the front side. Almost like the face is so ugly, wear a paper bag over it (cringe-worthy; should never do such a thing).
Also found it hilarious how they kept the Pixel phones until the end. They recognized nobody wanted to hear about their junk Google Home and Google Slate, so they forced everyone to bear with that until they got disappointed by the Pixel 3s.
At the same time as giving nobody what they wanted from the next Pixels, they increased the price because they know people will still buy minor cycle-upgrades, and feel they've bought a premium phone just because the price is higher. Apple paved the way for this, and Google followed. (And people wonder why I hate on Apple so much for their prices. THIS is why. You push the envelope, and others can follow along by staying just shy of your ludicrous requests)
a great phone but battery way too small on the XL not the most attractive phone and the price is way over priced for what it is .the camera sounds fantastic best in class. will wait for the mate 20 pro and see how that stacks up and decide which one . a 4000mah battery is that too much to ask for
Rem, 09 Oct 2018The worst thing is that being so expensive does not even incorporate new features such as the ... more“Why underclock the SoC instead of put a bigger battery like Huawei, Samsung, Xiaomi, etc?”
Because they’ve buyed the leftovers from Qualcomm i.e. the third class chips that had significant leaks to be standardised.Absolute garbage if you ask me.Whomever knows IC tech will know that those chips will consume even more electricity despite downrated performance.
I like colors and contrast of photos, but they look like oil paintings, similar to photos from Huawei P20 series...
