Why on earth would you even list Single rear camera under CONS? This single rear camera beats your dual or quad camera setups hands down and that's a CONS now? Is this a joke? Almost all the sites I have read review thus far, including sample shots on DPReview, it's quite clear that the camera is much better than the likes of Note 9 or iPhone Xs on most occasions! Something is wrong in the review, the tone of it was unnecessarily negative.
Tee, 31 Oct 2018Seriously why did Google ever release this phone? Mediocre at best and with that price, there ... moreAbout the storage, it depends on each user.
I have a flagship because it brings better features than midranges. But even with all G apps, UI apps and those I have installed on my phone it does not reach 17Gb after I clean cache data.
I have more than 70 apps.
My card is 4Gb, just mp3 files there.
For many users, even 32Gb is more than enough. I think all companies should offer 32, 64 and 128.
If I need 32, why do I have to pay for 64 or 128?
I purchased a Pixel 3 and in less than 2 weeks some sensor is bad - takes over 6 minutes to boot and screen gets dark and does not wake up, rendering phone not useable, unless you do a hard reset and wait 6+ minutes for boot. Frustrating. Any one else face issues like this? Is it a bad hardware design or was I the lucky, chosen one?
According to this review, the Pixel 3's camera is rather disappointing.
Very disappointing endurance. And NEVER EVER underclock the S845. . .
Wishlist for Pixel 4/ XL
- Of course SD8150 will be there.
- 6Gb Ddr5
- 64 and 128 Gb with slot SD card
- Notcheless screens
- 5.5 " and 6.2" both oled from Sharp
- New colours and no dual tone rear panel
- Virtual buttons option
- 16MP + 1/2" + 26mm RGB, 12MP + 1/2.3" + 26mm monochrome
- 8MP/22mm + 8mm/18mm selfies
- 3200 mAh and 3850 mAh
- 4K HDR recording
- No squeeze
- Sided FPS
Why not compare the camera software king to the camera hardware king: Mate 20 Pro ?
Google is becoming more and more like Apple -- WE will decide what your are supposed to want and YOU will learn to want it.
Gesture based navigation is BS. I foresee a spike in purchases of Nova Launcher.
Seriously why did Google ever release this phone? Mediocre at best and with that price, there they must be dreaming. So apart from the good camera, what else does the Pixel offer? Throttling performance, below average battery endurance, 4/64 GB is a thing of the past, no headphone jack, no SD card, and the list goes on.
Whackcar, 31 Oct 2018The primary reason why anyone would consider a Pixel phone is the camera, and it is clear now ... moreI know what you mean. I am normally an iPhone user but also used Pixel 2 XL for 8 months as backup phone because of its amazing camera. iPhone X’s have a much improved camera which was a pleasant surprise but I was still looking forward to Google to see what amazing new camera is gonna be on the Pixel 3. When rumor said single camera like Pixel 2 I was expecting a larger sensor with pixel-binning like Mate 20. Never expected the same hardware and barely improved HDR capability
Too expensive to experience pure android. I miss those rooting and flashing rom days.
Anonymous, 31 Oct 2018it looks like this time around the pixel is not the phone to get. the s9 was pretty good all ... moreWell said for stock experience. Sony is indeed better this time compared to Pixel.
This is what happens when a company with their own OS tries to mimic their competitor.
Nexus line was the most balanced one whose bugs could be forgiven for the price.
Pixel series is not compelling enough apart from the camera experience.
Wish Google wakes up soon as it is still not as bad as it sounds. For now, Pixel 3 unfortunately looks like average product at premium price.
Apple atleast has iOS (12 is indeed smooth and snappy) and it's ecosystem to cover for iPhone's cons.
it looks like this time around the pixel is not the phone to get.
the s9 was pretty good all things considered, in particular that its been released a long time ago now.
the iphone is also surprisingly good despite some bad press
the xperia xz3 is also apparently a better buy than the pixel3
-The back is slippery (can confirm) and scratches easily (we've been told).
-Just the one cam on the back when everyone else has at least two.
-Severe throttling under sustained load, just 4GB of RAM, no storage options beyond 128GB, and no possibility for expansion. Google, give us a choice to add memory card for expansion, not shoving us cloud storage all the time!
-Disappointing audio quality through the dongle. Google, put the 3.5mm jack where it is!
-No 4K/60fps video recording.
-No 3.5mm jack since Pixel 2
-No microsd slot since Nexus S
-FORCED gesture based navigation since Pixel 3. Come on Google, give us options such as nav bar keys to navigate the UI! You know, CHOICES!
There, editor, fixed it for you.
