    Just picked up a pixel 3 xl for $350 with a cracked back (I'll repair when glass becomes available) so far it's amazing, great camera's, great screen (thanks Samsung) battery life could be better, and screen brightness also needs attention (barely usable in direct sunlight... Great review Marques 👍

    Comment #4: That notch is damn ugly. Ugly enough for me to wait for Pixel 4XL.

    Thank you for the widescreen video format. I usually dont watch videos with my full screen becuase it cuts some details away. So it's nice to have a chance to actually use it for once. Looks gorgeous.

    I'm quite liking drew's review of this phone more because it actually reflects how shitty this phone is. This is definitely NOT the best way to experience android. Even though samsung is late to the party most of the time in terms of software updates, it still has more features than the most updated android version.

    • kakashi1300
      kakashi1300 8 днів тому

      +D.M.Turner because of stock android, right? Samsung's has come a long way and if you're still saying that it's still laggy and buggy, you must be living in 2014 or earlier. Sure pixel phones are getting updates first. But usually they're updates to fix the buggy mess of the first updates. Samsung may be late most of the time in terms of updates, but at least it already stable. It's just as smooth as stock android but not as boring.

    • D.M.Turner

      This is definitely one of the best Android phones on the market. And one of the easiest to navigate and modify to the individual. Samsung is over hyped. I liked the Samsungs I had in the past but was always so underwhelmed because everyone made it seem like this magical thing and it was always filled with a ton of features that had glitches in them.

    Notches need to die, but now you can't get a new phone without them... In my day we avoided dead pixels. Now it's apparently a trend to have them on purpose. I'd prefer 2013 Nexus 7 bezels over a notch because at least then I can see my entire screen. What a concept.
    It seems the Galaxy S9/S9+ are the last phones not to have notches. I'm getting one and riding out this trend until it finally dies.

    It's amazing when it works, but.. My brand new 3 xl broke after 3 months (!), they sent me new one and this one broke after 3 weeks (!!) Same thing - black screen - not valid operating system. Now they sent me refurbished one even though they promised to send new device. Ughhh lying customer service representatives and a device that you cannot rely on... and I thought there's nothing worse than HP...

    As an artist... The Notch is a deal breaker. I'll stick with my old iPhone 6+ (which works just fine nearly 5 years old btw) until all phone-makers pull their collective heads out of their big giant collective ass and rid the market of the fucking notch.

    I just got a pixel 3 and the screen is awesome. idgaf about the chins. they are better than that notch. and i ride bikes so i dont want a gianormous phone. And the pixel 3 is easier to 1 hand than the pixel 1.
    the star this year is those speakers tho. And the best earbuds i've ever had. They sound decent and actually stay in my ears.
