    Nice phone

    Posted .

    I gave 4 stars to this device only because it is a little difficult to use all the capabilities. I would suggest that the phone comes with a pre loaded video on how to use the phone to the max.

    Awesome Phone, "Meh" Upgrade over Pixel 2XL

    |
    Posted .

    I will start off by saying that I love this phone. I've been a fan of the Google Android experience ever since the Nexus phones and have generally stuck with those despite their shortcomings. I previously owned the Pixel 2 XL prior to the Pixel 3 and while the Pixel 3 isn't as dramatic an upgrade as I hoped it would be, it fixed pretty much all of the problems I had with the 2 XL. I really like the look and feel of the Pixel 3. The design has this simple understated look that I appreciate and the mint green power button adds a nice accent. It feels like it’s put together better than my previous Pixel too; the different pieces all blend together nicely and the buttons are nice and clicky. The screen and speakers are much improved. The screen is so much better than the 2 XL’s. That isn’t saying a lot on its own given the issues that screen had, but really does look great in general. The OLED is bright and colorful and I don’t have any problems seeing the screen on sunny days. The iPhone XS and probably the Galaxy phones still get the slight edge with their screens, but unless you’re holding them up side-by-side I don’t think the difference is noticeable. The speakers are louder, but more importantly the sound is clearer. Music actually sounds pretty good just coming out of the phone’s speakers. It’s not like $100 Bluetooth speaker good, but you could probably throw your $30 one away. The experience of using the phone is as great as it’s always been. It’s fast and besides a Verizon app that can be easily uninstalled completely free of carrier bloat. I’ve always preferred Nexus and Pixel phones because they offer the ‘purest’ Android experience and reassurance that you won’t have to wait 6 months to never to get the latest version of Android. The Pixel phones do deviate from the ‘pure’ Android experience a bit, but the the specific features built-in for Pixels are all useful and well integrated. The camera is just as great as the previous Pixel phones have been too. The amount of detail and quality it’s able to capture is just incredible. I wouldn’t call the camera a huge leap forward from my Pixel 2 XL, but it’s definitely better. Most of the improvements have been made in the software. The automated tracking I like especially - tapping to focus on something will lock the focus on that object even as you move the phone around. It works on photos and videos and not having to constantly be tapping on the screen to make sure I’m in focus is great. Top Shot I also really like, which takes saves a stream of photos when it detects the one you’ve taken might not be the best, so you can nail those jumping shots without having to take the same picture for 5 minutes. Battery life for me has been okay. It gets me to the end of the day for sure, but if I’m going out again I do feel like I have to charge it. It’s the only part of the phone that feels worse than my 2 XL, but having a smaller phone also means having a smaller battery, so I knew I was making that trade going in. Fortunately, the USB-C charger that’s included charges VERY fast and I’ve found leaving it on the charger for 10 or 15 minutes gives me more than enough to get through whatever else I’m doing. Some miscellaneous items: There’s still no headphone jack, but I guess that’s just the way things are going now. Google is still including the 3.5mm adapter at least. I’ve got a couple of pairs of Bluetooth headphones that I really enjoy and am pretty much onboard the wireless train. The box actually includes a pair of wired USB-C earbuds this time and I think they’re pretty good; I’ll be sticking with what I already have, but you could do a lot worse than these. I’ve read problems with the glass on the back scratching, but I have not experienced that at all so far on mine (though I do have it in a case most of the time). I don’t regret upgrading my phone to the Pixel 3, but besides the improvements to the screen and the camera it doesn’t feel that different than my 2 XL. I still think it’s a great phone and it’s the only Android phone I would recommend for most people, but if you’ve already got the Pixel 2 or 2 XL it might be worth thinking about if you really want to upgrade this time around.

    Excellent Android Phone!

    Posted .

    I bought this phone as Christmas Gift for my son. It was at his request and I am writing this review from my observations of him using it and what he has told me. The battery life is amazing and is far superior to his last phone. He only has to charge it every couple of days. The camera quality is of the charts. Hands down some the most vibrant pictures I have ever seen. He is using it with the Google wireless charger and the two work flawlessly together. My son constantly has it with him, and he highly recommends it. If you are looking for a high quality Android phone, I don't think you will be disappointed with it!

    The best Android has to offer!

    Posted .

    I've had the Pixel 3 for 4 days now. It's easily the best Android device I've used! Here are the key points! Build: the build quality of the device is fantastic! Glass front and back(so you CAN charge wirelessly now) and it feels phenomenal to hold! It's hands-down the best one-handed flagship on the market right now without question. I've held others and NONE of them have felt THIS good in my hand. Display: admittedly, last years Pixel 2 was a tad of a let down because of the display quirks. Those are gone! The Pixel 3's are using Samsung panels and it shows! Contrast is fantastic and colors are great! It has 3 modes. Natural(a bit dull), boosted(a bit much), and Google's calibrated adaptive (perfect in my opinion). The display on the Pixel 3 is 5.5 inches and it just melts into the frame. It's the perfect size for an 18:9 display. One-handed use is a dream with this size! Performance: being that it's a Pixel, it's running stock Android 9.0 Pie. The best way to go if you're thinking Android. In my 4 days of use thus far everything is just instantaneous when it comes to apps. You tap an app or something within an app and you're there. No stutter, lag, nothing; just butter smooth and lightning fast! Faster than the Pixel 2 which I didn't even think was possible because that device just tore thru everything. The only thing that can take a second or two is browsing the web but that can be expected as websites have much data transfer going on. Software: well, as stated above, you're getting stock Android. So you're getting the absolute best software experience Google has to offer! Android Pie is truly an amazing experience. It's just so well thought out and intuitive. Frankly, it puts iOS, a software that at one time was nearly impeccable, to shame. From the volume controls, to the notifications, to the way the phone app works, and everything in-between. Everything within the software is a one to two step process at most. Unlike iOS where things can take 3-5 steps. One thing people will most likely complain about at first is the new gesture navigation in Android Pie. It took me all of a day to get used to it and it's actually nice. It's smooth. It makes multitasking really easy. Then of course you have the Google Assistant which is renowned for it's intelligence and abilities. Best Assistant on the market by far! I guess the easiest way to sum up the software is it's just SMART. It learns you and knows what you're going to do before you do it and shows itself in very useful ways. It's probably the most evident when writing a text message. It seriously knows what I'm going to say before I say it! Cameras: I actually haven't taken many photos yet. The ones I have taken were super clean. Just go to YouTube and search the Pixel 3 camera. Coming off the success of the Pixel 2, the Pixel 3 actually somehow improved and is better. Best cameras on the market. What's crazy is again, Google is doing it all with just ONE camera. Just tells you how insanely good their machine learning is! Battery: for whatever reason, people have been criticizing the battery life of the Pixel 3's... In my experience so far battery life is stellar! I'm currently at 12% because I didn't charge the phone at all since yesterday morning so I'm sitting at 25 hours since last full charge and 6h 52m SoT! That's f'ing good in my opinion! I have adaptive brightness on with adaptive battery on and I manage my apps meticulously so maybe that's why? Maybe people don't want to take a couple minutes and set up their device to maximize battery life? I don't know... But mine has been great considering the Pixel 3 battery comes in at 2,915mAh. Kudos to Google! Speakers: in my experience so far, the speakers are good. On par with the Pixel 2 maybe a bit louder. They get pretty loud. Call quality and reception: so far I've taken one call on my Pixel 3. I had it on speaker and it was great. Very clear, crisp audio. No static or distortion at all. Cell reception has also been great! No issues at all! Cons: the only knock I suppose one could give the Pixel 3 is that it does NOT have a headphone jack... BUT, not only does Google give you a dongle for it(which actually significantly improves audio through analog), but they also give you Pixel Buds which are USB-C. Plus, who seriously doesn't use Bluetooth these days? Most people do... Oh, and it doesn't have expandable storage... BUT, Google again comes through and gives all Pixel users unlimited backup for photos and videos to Google photos at original size. So....can you really complain? Conclusion: so, for at a minimum $800, is it worth it?!? In my opinion, yes! Not only for all the reasons I described above, but most importantly, support! You're guaranteed 3 years of OS updates with the Pixel 3 plus all the little things in-between! It's an investment and one I myself was very excited to make. Knowing this device has Google's backing and support is definitely worth it! Much like the iPhone (except $200 less;) it's an investment. Take the leap. You'll be glad you did! I know I sure am!!

    A solid upgrade from the Pixel 1 XL

    |
    Posted .

    I upgraded to the PIxel 3 from the PIxel 1 XL. I won't comment about the camera since that's the main focus point of nearly every review out there, and I don't think I can say much that others haven't already said. :P I've only had the phone for about a week now, but so far these are the things - some very small things - that I am particularly liking since upgrading: The smaller form factor and overall premium build quality feeling: • Coming from the Pixel XL, the smaller size of the Pixel 3 is a fun change of scenery. The screen is still plenty large, and while I liked the larger Pixel XL just fine, I really like the compact-ness of the Pixel 3 and it feels great in the hand. The rounded screen edges: • Pixel 2 owners will already be familiar with the rounded screen, but the original Pixels had the sharp squared screens, so coming from that to the rounded-edge design of the Pixel 3 screens is neat, and I really like the way it looks. Software upgrades and differences: • Some of these, like the point above, were there for the Pixel 2s but not the original Pixels. For example, always-on screen mode is awesome. Call screening is super cool too, and I look forward to being able to try that out for myself more in the future. Pixel earbuds included in the box: • Small point here, but I think it's cool that the earbuds were included in the box with the PIxel 3s. They fit extremely well with the loop-earpiece design, and the integration with the assistant is something I'm looking forward to using more. -- I know that this is a fairly lopsided review lol, but I honestly am really enjoying it so far and don't have any gripes or complaints (yet). Of course, nothing is perfect, and I haven't had it for a terribly long time yet, but so far it's a solid upgrade from the Pixel 1 XL.

    Great phone so far

    |
    Posted .

    I upgraded from a 3 year old Droid Turbo 2, and so far the Pixel 3 is refreshingly great. Battery Life: The first few days I was disappointed in the battery life. I was expecting the smaller battery with the more efficient Pixel phone to be better than a 3 year old Turbo 2 (even though those phones had huge batteries), and it was about the same or a little worse (about a day of use). But, after having the adaptive battery setting on for a little over a week, the battery life has gotten better every charge, and is up to 40 hours on a single charge. Build: The Turbo 2 was an indestructible tank of a phone. I never had a case or screen protector on it. I dropped it many times and it was still working great for me after 3 years. With the Pixel 3, it definitely feels like a quality phone. But, being all glass, this phone will obviously need more protection. The glass back is a little slick with the rounded corners. I plan to take better care of this phone, and have a case from Carved that has a nice grippy edge so I don't drop the phone on accident. Display: I went with the smaller phone for 2 main reasons: 1. I prefer the small form factor because it's more comfortable in my pocket and my hand, and 2. The notch on the XL. I'm more old fashioned and don't like the notches - they seem like a useless feature. But, the screen on the Pixel 3 is great. I like the 18:9 aspect ratio, the rounded corners, the brightness range (from almost off to blindingly bright), and everything about it. I may miss the "shatterproof" screen from the Turbo 2, but this is a much nicer screen. Performance: smooth, fast, snappy. Has some RAM management issues, but Google announced an update to fix that in December 2018. Camera: Probably the reason most people will get this phone. I haven't been able to put it through the wringer yet, but it is pretty great. Night sight is some sort of sorcery. Top shot, Google lens, the wide angle selfie camera, and unlimited photo storage are all great features. This phone camera can almost compete with my Nikon DSLR... ALMOST. I'll always take a high quality DSLR over a phone for pictures. But having a camera like the Pixel 3 in your pocket all the time is pretty awesome. Other things: Android 9 Pie is really nice. I almost immediately got used to the "gesture" navigation and prefer it now. The speakers sound amazing. I'll still use my bluetooth speakers for listening to music around the house, but they make watching videos great. i haven't missed the headphone jack yet, and the included Pixel buds will probably be just fine for my needs. Finger print reader is in a very natural place, is very accurate and fast. I got my Pixel 3 for $200 off and it was well worth it. It's a great overall phone.

    I've had phone for over a year and it's one of my favorite I've ever owned. I strongly believe this is an 80% phone meaning it's designed to meet 80% of the market needs. Tech reviewers complained about ONLY 4GB ram, never needed more. They complained about ONLY having a 2915mAh battery, never needed more. I would say if you are one to need these specs, maybe look at other more expensive phones. Otherwise if you are looking for a phone that just works, is intuitive, and has many newer modern features like USB c, fast charging, wireless charging, beautiful display, and simple minimalist look, give this phone a hard look. Common complaints: Cost. These things are always on sale and worth the sale cost. At full MSRP, I agree it's not worth it over the other flagships. Not enough RAM. If you are gaming while watching YouTube and video editing, sorry this is not your phone. This phone is perfect for the 80% that just want to text, surf internet, check out YouTube or Facebook, etc. Battery life. I've had this thing for over a year. I hardly ever fast charge. In fact I use aftermarket wireless charger that takes hours to full charge. No issues. I get about 5-6 hrs of on screen time still mostly YouTube and internet over WiFi. Fast charger is very good for times where I over use. 20 mins will give me about 40% which is usually enough. Major benefits: Camera. Yes it's that good. The selfie wide angle is surprising useful and awesome. Not sure if Google still does this, but for a time we get unlimited Google photos storage at full resolution. If you value a good camera (one of the best in this price point) and no worries backup, this phone has it. Repairability. My wife has the XL. She broke her back glass. Went to you break I fix next day and it was repaired for under $100. This phone is very repairable which is not something people often think about. Screen replacement isn't much more. Sorry never broke my 3 yet but I'm sure they are similar. I've dropped it a few times on concrete and nothing. I have the Google case on it so maybe that helped. Stock Android. This was a welcome after having a Galaxy. Loved the specs on the Samsung but the bloatware is seriously out of control. Wife went from an iPhone since she was sick of apple support and loves the features she was missing. I can still go on but if you reading this considering this phone, you can't go wrong. If you are an average smartphone user looking for a solid reliable product that works well with Google services and has one of the best cameras with autosync to Google photos, this is your phone. I've had it over a year, and will probably have it 2 more years depending on the next round of pixels and deals.

    Excellent phone so far

    Posted .

    I haven't had the phone long enough to try all the features, but what I have tried I've loved. I moved to the Pixel from a Samsung S7. The data exchange went well although for some reason my text messages did not transfer. I remedied that with a 3rd party app. The restart time on this phone is amazing! You will hardly realized that it rebooted. One of the first updates on this phone is Google unlocking the Sim. So if you're concerned about the reports that the Pixel 3 for Verizon purchased through Best Buy is Sim locked, I wouldn't worry about that, Google has your back. The absence of bloatware can be difficult to get used to. But I'm loving the pure Android experience. So far this phone has been great!

    No Issues

    |
    Posted .

    I spent way too long researching phones recently, but always kept coming back to the Pixel 3 as the one that would be my next. My hesitancy was over the numerous quality concerns/bugs that were reported all over the internet. So I figured I'd just weigh in to say I'm incredibly happy with this phone and so far haven't experienced anything that would make me regret my purchase. I've had the phone for a month and a half and perhaps the December and January updates fixed a lot of the problems that the people who bought on release were experiencing. I'm not sure, but seriously - I love this phone. It's as fast and nimble as any I've used, the camera delivers on expectations again and again, and the "pure" Android experience really is very satisfying. I'm coming from a Galaxy S7 and simply not having all those Samsung and carrier apps pre-installed does indeed make a difference. I thought I would miss having an SD card option and worried that 64 GB would not be enough. I was wrong. It's plenty of space (I've barely scratched 40%) and I don't have to deal with constantly moving apps back to the SD card every single time they're updated because I don't have space. My app drawer only has the apps I actually use and wanted in the first place. What a concept! I'll say this: my wife's S9 is a little wider and feels better in my hand than the Pixel 3. There's definitely more screen real estate on that one, as well. But neither thing would make me switch. The Pixel is easy to use one handed and fits in a pants pocket. Oh and this is my first phone without a headphone jack. I don't really miss it. Still seems unnecessary, but at least the Pixel comes with USB-C earbuds in the box and they're actually pretty cool. Google Assistant is baked right in, meaning you can listen to your notifications as they come in simply by pressing a button on the headphone cord. Neat. Last thing: wait for a sale. $800 or whatever they cost at full-price still seems ridiculous to me for just about ANY phone. But it's frequently on sale and at $500 I don't know what could possibly beat this phone.

    This is by far the best phone that I have ever owned. The price, simplicity, design, battery, speed and camera are what makes it outstanding. Yah I could spend $1500 for a top of the line phone that could probably take better pictures have a little faster response time however it wouldn't be worth the extra cost. I have owned this phone for over 1.5 years and haven't encountered a single issue. The battery holds a charge as if I just took it out of the box. I will be keeping this phone as long as I can and will be sure to buy Google in the future.

    iPhone for years but this made me switch

    Posted .

    Ive had an iPhone for about 3 years now and once the pixel 2 came out i knew i wanted to switch. But before my upgrade was completely ready the pixel 3 rumors were going around. I waited and I’ve got to say I’m happy did. This phone is great! Quick, light weight, feels good in your hands and very responsive. Just a slight learning curve going from IOS to android but i know i will get there. Plus i never liked Siri but i really enjoy the google assist.

    Bought this for my wife when her 5 yr old iPhone died. She was worried that it was going to be a huge learning curve coming from iPhone (she's not the best with tech), but she learned how to use it pretty quickly & now she's happy with it. Only issues were sound quality wasn't very good on phone calls at first - people she talked to heard echoes - but that seems to have been rectified by subsequent phone updates. Camera is great. We take all pics of our baby with her phone. Portrait mode for the win!

    My first Pixel 3 device (purchased March 2019), was faulty immediately. There were issues. One of the main ones was the speakerphone just didn't seem to want to work when switching it on in the midst of a call. Then, the speakerphone just stopped working entirely. Took that device back after just a few weeks and got #2. Has been working great for over a year now, with good speed, fantastic camera, and battery life to be expected for a smart device (phone says battery lasts for 28-29 hours on average). These are clean devices, that run Android OS smoothly. Google hardware, Google software, just works well (when it works). I would get another Pixel in the future. Thank you, Best Buy Mobile, for making the phone swapping easy.

    Pixel 3 is great for me

    |
    Posted .

    I had Motorola phones for the past 3-4 years and came to appreciate the "slim-down" Android experience. My last Moto phone experience wasn't great though and I needed a new phone. I didn't want to switch over and learn Apple OS, and I didn't want all of Samsung's "add-on" ecosystem to Android. The Pixel 3 is perfect for me. I am not a power user, and primarily use my phone for apps, social and pictures. The Pixel 3 camera is superb, I still haven't scratched all the features, and the picture quality is really terrific. The Night Sight feature is unbelievable how it can extract accurate colors and detail in low light. The phone seems very fast and responsive to me. Power users may complain of the 64GB but that will be more than enough for me. The Call Screening AI feature alone is worth the price of the phone, considering how awful spam calls are getting. When I get MY robot to answer THEIR robocall, it just fills me with fiendish glee. I am very happy with my purchase.

    Upgrading from the OG pixel very satisfied

    |
    Posted .

    I'm upgrading from the OG pixel. Hands down you guys performance is felt off the bat while using the phone. Extremely smooth processing throughout my apps and internet. Wireless capabilities is a huge plus for me and very happy with the must needed upgrade feature. Camera is better especially the front camera that dual camera really does give you a wider better angle. Night features on the camera is pretty stunning I was blown away. I'm currently using the Google pixel fabric case and still the phone is light and looking real good. Now my only gripe or con that idk how I really feel is the speakers at full volume yes it is hands down the loudest producing speakers on a phone I've ever heard. But the dual front mounted speakers vibrate so much it almost distortes the quality and the vibration is crazy in the hands it's almost uncomfortable. Now the Google pixel fabric case helps very little but it does help barely softening up the vibration. But yes those speakers are very loud and quality is ok. Overall I've been using it for a week now and I'm happy still learning to use this special Google features it's taking me time but I think Google is heading a great direction Google assistant really has blown me away over the years and on this pixel 3 generation I am not disappointed. Would recommend greatly especially compared to these other flagship phones I don't think you can go wrong in the price.

    Switched from IPhone to Pixel, No Regrets!

    I have been a loyal iPhone user since their first phone came out, but have recently been displeased that Apple keeps their best features for their costliest products. Meanwhile, other manufacturers have been providing a lot of features at much more compelling price points. I was hesitant to switch to Android due to my comfort with iPhone functionality and apps already purchased, as well as worries about bloatware on Android. I finally decided to try the Pixel due to the glowing reviews of the phone, screen, lack of bloatware from Google, and camera and I'm so happy that I did. I've had the phone for a week now and absolutely love it!!! The screen is beautiful and really makes images pop. The camera is amazing and is the first time I've seen pictures from a phone that can rival a DSLR. I love that the Google OS is more customizable and can be tweaked to my preferences. The phone itself is beautiful; the screen is large without being uncomfortable to hold. It has a slim form factor and the finish is beautiful. The fingerprint reader works flawlessly and battery life has been great. When I initially bought the phone and transferred my information from iPhone to Google, I experienced withdrawal symptoms and regret and wondered how I could live without Apple. It honestly took a few days to setup all the apps and phone to my liking and learn how to use the new OS. I also downloaded Apple Music and that has worked perfectly on Android. Now I absolutely love the phone and I plan on never going back to Apple.

    I switched to the Google Pixel from an Apple iPhone. It couldn't have been easier to switch. The only downside over the course of using it is no longer being able to use iMessage. I also like the fingerprint reader over facial recognition.

    Great Camera, Great Phone

    If you want a phone that has a great camera and a very "clean" android experience, you'll love the Pixel 3. I like some of the other phones on the market, but I don't like that some of them come with 10 or more apps of bloatware pre-installed (e.g., Samsung S9, etc.). You don't have that problem with the Pixel 3. Also, the 4GB of RAM has been sufficient because the phone runs well and I've had no problems with it at all. It only took a couple of minutes to get used to the new navigation of android 9.0 and now I prefer it over the older versions. I highly recommend this phone if you're an android user that wants a good camera and no bloatware.

    Great Phone for Work. Daily Driver not Sure

    I got my Pixel as a replacement work phone as my daughter took my Apple X. With the phone at $300 off the value is great. I tested out the camera I read so much about. The extra features are more hit than miss but the Night Sight was unbelievable. Took some shots at Disney World and my friends and colleagues could not get over the quality of the pictures at night. I use the phone primarily for work and it's the perfect phone for what I need to do. It's fast. The quick security updates are great. Hooks up with my company's systems no problem. There is a robocall scammer function built into the Pixel which is wonderful as I can screen calls. Now as a daily driver/every day phone for personal use that I'm not sure about. The memory is fixed like an iPhone but the storage options is limited. So if I were to go on a trip and wanted to store a bunch of movies for me and the kids locally then I can run into memory issues. Also as much as the headphone jack is slowly dying out the sound quality is much better than bluetooth. Listen to an LG phone with its quad-dac and you'll hear the difference. Overall would I recommend the phone? Absolutely but realize there are its limitations.

    FANTASTIC PHONE

    I love this phone! The camera is amazing and the features on the camera are great. I really like the fingerprint scanner being on the back of the phone - it's more convenient when I'm picking it up to unlock it. The google assistant is awesome. My husband bought the same phone, so when we send texts, it gives the ... bubble indicating he's texting and I can tell when he read them. The phone has night mode the pulls out the blue light so that it doesn't keep you as awake when you are winding down. You can even tell the Google Assistant to go in to wind-down mode. There is a setting for Digital Wellbeing that displays time on apps and you can set limits on apps. The battery life has been amazing as well. I've gotten at least 36 hours on every charge so far - I've owned it for about 9 days. There is also a battery saving mode when it hits 15% and the phone will tell you the approximate time that it will die based on your current usage. The only negatives I can mention is that it uses USB-C ports, rather than micro-USB. So I had to buy a bunch of new cables to charge my phone at home, work, car. And the headphones use the same port as charging, so you can't charge and have headphones plugged in at the same time. Also, it does not have expandable memory. So you'll just have to transfer pics and videos off more frequently.
