      Why didn't you mention Oneplus when you were comparing the camera with the other smartphone companies, also isn't oneplus' video stabilisation better than that of an iPhone?

    They sabotaged themselves which compromised the precision of the Pixel brand...WITH THAT NOTCH!! WTF...?
    Why the...?! WHERES SAMSUNG’S COMMERCIAL ABOUT IT?! Cmon Samsung keep that same energy! After all it is your Screen they put that Ugly ass notch So I guess you could Say ITS A SAMSUNGS SCREEN THAT HASTHE WORST NOTCH OF THEM ALL. So Make a commercial about how ugly that notch on your screen is. And how you let Google leave a permanent skid mark right down the middle and let it press run.

    i looked at one of these at my local best buy. anyone else notice that the screen is not pure white? it's more like a bucket of pure white paint with a touch of tan or khaki mixed in. to me it was very obvious.

    There's already a few out there but I'd like to see you're take on the pixel 3 camera Vs the mate 20 pro, I know you were not a massive fan of the mate 20pro but but now based on more then a first impression.. how do you think these cameras compare.

      +Chicken Barnes ik that's what I'm saying. Google pixel 2 camera was good. But I want social media apps to actually use the camera other wise what's the point in buying a good phone with a good camera when u can't use the good camera on social media apps.

    so something that has bothered me in smartphones for some time now but is never mentioned in anyone's video is how video has skips in it. i am curious if this is something you can explain because it seems like a very poor quality issue that is never addressed. if you watch your video on pixel 3xl you use a clip of a train going past. it skips several times, but no mention. i have noticed this on every phone i have used in the last several years. WHAT UP!

    It's cancerous when you out too much of gesture based interaction. It gets increasingly annoying to swipe you finger on a glass surface especially when the swipes are longer. More touches & less swipes is ok.
    Designers should strike a balance somewhere between usability and practicality

    Hey Mark. All these listening stuff is good but most definitely bad because this is just Google spying 24/7 on everyone. Imagine your phone giving you a score and telling you how bad you were when making love today. Or you phone mistakenly calling your wife just because it heard your conversation with another woman.... no all of this must be controlled by the owner of the phone with the option to permanently disable these futures..

    What if they would put some little oled LEDs OVER the notch and put maybe a battery-percentage-display there? While the place where the notch is currently can't be used for screen, a few tiny LEDs should be doable. This would make the space usable and free up the right side of the notification bar (at least battery and maybe connection could be moved)
    Then they would only need to find some innovative way to use the new space ( quick settings by sliding down from there? Bigger clock? Maybe integration with Google duo so you could actually put the video of the person you're calling into that space beside the notch and have the whole rest of the screen available?)

    The camera makes a noize the phone references the sound noize. I think that has to do with it.
