I wonder if google has a contractual clause , stating that all stock android phones need a shitty battery ...
128 GB is not enough? I have a pixel 2 with 64GB and I take a lot of photo/video... always I have 20-30gb free... because of unlimited backup storage... and I don't touch a single button to move something... just take unlimited pictures...
4GB of RAM is not enough? ok... blame google because they optimized software and not solving the RAM problems by just adding more RAM...
the camera will never fail in any conditions...
Google Lens will help me to translate everything... copy text from everything... copy contacts... put the camera on a wifi password in a restaurant...
Google assistant? do you know how easy is to say "share my location with Jhon" or "call my wife and put her on speaker"...
How easy is to search all photos with my dog? and not to scroll the gallery? how easy is to see all photos from different vacations by places...dates...
SO I DONT CARE ABOUT 5 CAMERAS OR 512GB OR 10GB RAM...

I know many SD845-powered phones who don't face such problems.

You're trying hard to defend those copycat bullies against someone who's actually doing good.
We all know for a fact that Sony can easily take the 'W' if they intentionally do so. Their knowledge in camera is light years ahead of everybody, and they could also create a smartphone camera today that others would be able to match 5 years later on.
Their displays are easily one of the best. The general consumers approve this by choosing the XZ3's panel as their favorite, so all those DisplayMate BS you have are unwanted, because what the heck are accurate colors when you'd not even try using them? (I know for a fact that Samsung screens can also be as vibrant, but nowhere near the pop that Sony screens have to offer, in which even their XZ2 has better color pop than the Note 9).
In audio, if they didn't abandon the jack and actually improved it, they could easily have Onkyo DACs and blow the competition away, including the V40 ThinQ.
Again, they could do these incredible things, but don't wanna do it for the sake of those bullies to leave them alone in peace.
Studying a lot at home?? LOL, you mean they're browsing the net for the young boy's old ideas and try to recreate them with their names on it. They can't even do those things right, but their magical use of words make them believable and sound revolutionary.
Friendly to people?? I bet you know that there's a really kind person like the young boy, then there are 'fake' people who are only kind when there are other people around, but worse than evils behind the back, like those "good-looking" bullies.
Yes, there are reasons why they've got their hard earned money.
The young guy got it for working hard and using his real talent of creative thinking, while the good-looking guys got it from their spoiled parents and by "Ctrl C + Ctrl V"-ing the works of other people.
Good for them that the young boy isn't speaking about this yet, otherwise it would be the end of those bullies.
worst phone ever, gj google.. more cons then pros haha im so gonna buy this phone.... NOT!

As usual, you posted a well balanced review of device.
However I believe you should have compared this phone with Sony Xperia XZ 2 Premium as well.
MdN8, 01 Nov 2018Night Sight is impressive, in some other reviews even more than here. I hope other makers star... moreActually, Night Sight isn't impressive. It's a noisy and blurry mess. You can replicate it in any cheap smartphone which has manual camera controls (which the obscenely priced Pixel phone doesn't have). Set ISO to 400 (or higher) and shutter speed to 1 second.(or higher) depending on how bright the scene you want to come out.
Ah, so this is why Google decided to underclock Snapdragon 845 inside Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL: They skimped out on software battery optimisation and a proper heat pipe to save costs, so its battery performance would be simply atrocious and the chipset would throttle down to unusable level if they didn't underclock it. And GSMArena is kind enough to give it a score of 4.2 to this good-for-nothing(apart from its single camera) mess of a product. Seems legit.
The Pixel 3 is at the height of mediocrity in a flagship phone. 860EUR for a flagship phone that doesn't even have 4K 60fps, a dual rear camera, a micro SD card slot, a dual SIM, a 3.5mm headphone jack and a reasonably sized battery.
You might as well buy a Mi A2 lite if you're after fast software updates and fluid, pure Android user experience. At least the 200EUR Mi A2 lite comes with dual sim AND dedicated micro SD card slot (NOT hybrid), FM radio hardware, IR blaster (master remote), and huge 4000mAh battery at LESS THAN 1/4th the price of the obscenely priced Pixel 3 (860EUR). Now if you must have flagship performance, the 300EUR Pocophone F1 will be a vastly better phone with the same SD 845 processor, 6GB RAM, huge 4000mAh battery, dual sim, hybrid micro sd slot, headphone jack, FM radio and versatile DUAL rear camera system. Software updates will not be as superfast, but they'll be fast anyway or at least arrive in a timely fashion, knowing how Xiaomi even updates their entry level $150 Redmi 4x phones to a major Android software update plus timely security patches. There, another Pixel phone market flop in the making.
Shanti Dope, 01 Nov 2018"The number of Pixel 3s sold will very likely be a fraction of the major competitors' figures,... moreIn that case Sony Mobile is more like a fat smartass who has rich parents trying to act like a talented one when he really isn't. And those "good-looking guy" you mentioned are actually studying a lot when they at home(but you can't notice it because they don't show it to other people) so they do great in all tests, plus they are also super friendly to other people and that's what makes them so popular. There are reasons behind some being successful when others aren't, and those who are successful generally have worked really hard to earn their respective places. Sony Mobile haven't, but instead is trying to use their parents' name to be popular.
Theres nothing to excites about this Pixel 3. Same old same old.
"The number of Pixel 3s sold will very likely be a fraction of the major competitors' figures, but does that make the Pixel 3 a bad phone? We reckon not."
So why can't the Xperia phones that are similar in this situation also be treated nicely?!
I bet there will be more Xperia XZ3 sold than Pixel 3, and sales or not, the former is clearly ahead of the newest Pixel phones, with a display that's easily competing with the best of Samsung and Apple, and a camera that's as competent as the Pixel 3's, yet they don't get the love and attention that it deserves.
Sony is like that always-bullied super talented young boy in school, but the other students and teachers will always notice that one good-looking guy (Samsung, Apple, Huawei, etc.) with less impressive talent and inferior academic performance.
What the hell is happened with the Audio Quality?
Noise Level -71db, Dynamic Range 83db?
How can they be below 90 as a 2018 phone?
Just not enough PROS for me to consider this phone..
I love the dimenions, pure android...
I don't like that the Camera has barely improved, battery life is pretty average, CPU throttling isn't great either since Android needs all the power it can get and means Google didn't want to spend any time coming up with a better thermal design, 4GB is pushing it IMO when we are about to enter 2019.
Its still a great phone, I think at 100-200 less both the 3 and 3 XL would price it perfectly.
And I felt like half of the photos shot on an iPhone XS were better than the Pixel 3, they had a more natural look, will be even better once they fix the smoothing issue.
