More to a phone than a huge ugly bump for a nice photo. But that's just my opinion.

If you follow the reviews of paid YouTubers and blogs it was "fantastic" and "brilliant", yes. If I compare it with the results of Nokia 808 or even Nokia 950 it´s just average picture quality. Googles HDR+ had strong artefacts with my Pixel 1 and 2 in lowlight and it´s still noisy with Pixel 3.
I´m not talking about Chinese companies, I´m not interested in those companies. I have general criticism about this industry. Google was lazy because before P20 Pro there was no competition? If true, this shows exactly that those companies are not interested in progress. They are interested in profits, profits, profits for their shareholders.
I'm digging the design, It's pretty much a shrunken version of the pixel 2 xl and sony xz3. Very clean and minimal. Deffo the best selfie camera I've seen on a phone, rear camera is on par with other flagships it's to close to call this year.

And as for sticking with a tried / true system they didn't need to overhaul the camera. Now that Huawei improved on the p20 with the mate 20 and the iPhones take gorgeous photos I'm sure Google will once again put some r&d into the 'next camera to have' for the next pixel phone.
Also, you can't really compare the expensive flagship phones (Pixel, iPhone, S9, Mate20[partially]) with the inexpensive chinese phones just because they run SD845 chips. Build quality and top components go a long way.
Pixel 3 especially Pixel 3 XL is beyond pathetic. I don't know what weed the R&D is smoking to come up with overpriced crap like this. Their mobile department should be obliterated once and for all. The legacy of Nexus line is long gone.
I would rather buy a much cheaper OP6T or any SD845 Xiaomi phone and root it.
This phone shows the fraud of smartphone industry and those internet giants very good. Basically the same phone than Pixel 2 with other screen - but they charge again even more than last year..
Best example is the camera: We now have the same camera quality for years now. Google has billions of money that they could use for development and they own parts of HTC. But they use the exactly same camera hardware of last year. It´s a joke. There´s no real progress because they don´t use bigger, better sensors. Old Nokia phones had much better camera tech than those overpriced Pixels and iPhones. Stop buying such cashcows! Those companies maybe only change when their sales drop down more and more.
Disappointed by the new digital zoom, it can't even handle 2x which means that it likely only has an advantage in 1.1-1.9x where the competition has no such algorithm and no optical solution covering the range either.
However the night mode, even in alpha, is highly impressive. It's for sure that P20P's night mode couldn't have retained such fine detail compared to non-night mode, as for the Mate20P there's no way to say for certain except with a head-on comparison.
No expansion memory? Never mind I will go for other phones with SD card slot.
There maybe a problem in the "video quality comparison" web page of GSMARENA , because the Low Light 2160 video of the Pixel 2 is much more clear and sharp than the Pixel 3. Perfectly visible in the ten pounds banknote
Only thing attractive is small size and you can actually carry it normally. Can someone tell about Pixel phone app/dialer - is it like HTC has (can see last call and numpad same view, can edit number before calling etc) ? HTC sense is by far the best on the market and having tried them all from Iphone to Samsung i feel these are massively overrrated. So hoping if Pixel is similar due link with HTC but havent found any info yet.
Only 4GB ram? Sad :-(
google your phone is so advanced it travelled from the 90s into 2018 !!!
I ordered the pixel 3 because it has OLED, it is relatively slim and light and it does NOT have an edge-design.

Does this Have Anything Like Portrait Lighting...???
I have a HTC One A9, same size as the Pixel 3 but the smaller Pixel now has a bigger screen. The Pixel 2 (same size as the A9 (forefather size to Pixel, it had a not so smooth glass to frame transition so i waited.
After watching all the releases, i finally ordered a 3. On the 3 XL, you can hide the notch with a setting but also their is another application i watched that hides the notch and puts the readouts into that newly created top bezel which is fine. I was so tempted for the larger one but the compact 3 it is. I should be able to leave my Cannon camera at home for some travels and cant wait for the Night Shot to be activated later this month. Any little bugs, updates will address im sure.
"pure" Android praise and myth about "best camera" on phone are just YT advertise...Pixel doesn't have hardware or software better than others but it does have army of youtubers to share false excitement about mediocre phone.
I think it's a rather nice phone. And the fact that they only did a minor upgrade to what everyone says was 'the best camera of 2017' then I'm ok with that.
The fact is still the same that it's taken other phone's 2 or even 3 (cough, huawei) sensors to edge out (and barely) last years 'camera phone to have'.
Still would rather have the Pixel 3 XL over the Mate 20 Pro anyday.
