    Am I alone with preferring telephoto to ultrawide? Full review coming soon.

      Yes but when you have such a good software like the pixel phones where you can zoom in 2 times without losing picture quality, then I think that an ultrawide would make more sense.

      Starting price for the pixel 4 and pixel 3 were the same right??? Pixel 3 just got cheaper over time

    14 days into owning a Pixel 4 xl, small cracks are forming all over the screen. This is from normal use with no accidents. I've never had a more fragile phone. I severely regret picking a Pixel 4 XL over a Pixel 3. Already have to use my device protection to get a replacement on day 15.

    Lack of a fingerprint sensor is apparent all the time.

    I've had android phones my whole life. I've never seen an android phone's screen crack without a catastrophic fall. I've had my Pixel XL fall down stairs without a case with 0 damage. Pixel 4 XL cracks in your pocket. It's insanely fragile.

        My favorite thing about the pixel 4 is the cost depreciation it caused the 3 to have 😏

                My iPhone XR has better battery life than the Pixel. The Pixel still has lag yet the XR smooth as butter experience.

                Yes, I like Android as well but I cant stand lag, it drives me nuts.

                My friend just got a Huawei P30 Pro and she loves it.

                        I was waiting for Pixel 4 so much
                        but now I think the best decision for me is to pick 3a XL. :)

                          5:08 'Can you tell which is which?...' .. So really which is which mate? lmao.. .. All 'on the left' looks better to me. Btw best pixel 3-4 video on tube.. I feel like the 4 almost gone too mainstream with that 'more premium feel' compare to the previous Pixels 'uniform'. LF your answer.

                            how about the phone speaker quality or sound overall. Start worrying about what the phone is actually for. Phone calls!!!!!!! Great it can take a great selfie. Who really cares. I feel like all the mfg have forgotten about the key parts of a phone the phone call sound quality suffers. Its hard to hear and when you turn the volume up it doesnt make it better. Do i care if it has face unlock Not one bit

                                  I'm looking to buy a new phone. Cant decide between pixel 3a, pixel 3 or wait for 4a. I can get a 3 for £350 brand new. Is it still worth it even now?

                                            I have the pixel 3a and I will tell you this is some of the best sounding HD speakers i ever heard in a phone

                                              I personally think the Pixel 4XL is a much better buy than the Pixel 3 XL. Even if the camera is the same, the Pixel 4 XL looks a lot more premium to me. With that being said, I wouldn't get a Pixel 4 over the Pixel 3 or 3A.

                                                I have been Android for ever, and had Pixel 1, then the 2, then the 3 (but returned the 3 in a few days for full refund). The great irony is, Pixel devices actually pushed me to try the iPhone for the first time ever b/c the Pixel's OS was constantly changing to mimic iOS but half-baked, glitchy and frustrating and I wanted a smoother/better OS system. Then.. I had a perfectly AWFUL experience with Google support and that sealed the deal. I sold my Pixels (and also PIxelbook) and got the iPhone 11 pro and also scored a great sale on MacBook Pro. This is my very first time with Apple products. So far, I'm digging the experience and Apple support QUICKLY proved to be MUCH better. In fact, I don't even miss the Google products one bit. My only complaint with iOS is that there is often more steps/clicks to do one task and jumping around extreme screen locations for these steps. Android has better long-press options vs iOS. I miss some of the simple one-swipe or one-click to do similar function but, that isn't enough--whatsoever--to come back to Android. I do miss is Android Auto b/c it surpassed CarPlay so I hope Apple fixes all the awfulness with CarPlay. I'll give Apple a good long test drive but so far I'm liking it.

                                                    I honestly think the pixel 3 is the most beautiful phone I've ever used. Especially that back.

                                                      The pixel 3 has such an iconic design, it really looks like 3 years combined into one excellwnt deaign. The pixel is just an frankenstein of too many ideas. I love the 5.7 size upgrade though, its a shame the batterie life is so bad.

                                                                                  I've also heard that the Pixel 2 XL is better than the 3 XL.

                                                                                  Does that mean that the Pixel 2 XL is the best Pixel phone?
