    I mean the phone is great and all but it's the camera that's just amazing. Night sight is magic and photos in general are just too good. I have not taken out the DSLR for last 2 months, I blame pixel 3 :) Phone itself is great too with clean UI, useful Hey Google and fast. It restarts so fast! wireless charging is slow though, probably only negative.

    Best Buy was excellent and reshipped to me no hassle a replacement Pixel 3 XL using via next day air. After 4 days the screen malfunctioned and had a vertical magenta line on the screen. Minus one star for only getting 4 days out of the pixel 3 before a hardware failure. Best Buy sent me a prepaid return label for the first phone. Not sure if everyone gets a reship like that no-hassle for similar product issues; was it because it was inside the normal return exchange window or was it was because I'm a my Best Buy elite plus member? Regardless please with that replacement experience. @@@@@@@@ As of this writing I'm at day 11 with the replacement and all is still good. fingers crossed) Took advantage of the black friday deal and paid using the Verizon Device Payments to get the discounted pricing. After paying the first device payment to Verizon the "Pay off device" option enabled a few days later and I paid off the remaining balance successfully to be out from under the no longer under contract for the device. So Verizon Device Payments are kosher for me since they have the escape early payoff option. The pixel 3 supports 5W Qi wireless charging but doesn't support 10W Qi wireless charging. The Pixel 3 only supports "Google's 10W proprietary wireless charging technology." and only chargers vetted through google's "Made for Google" program get fast charging. The "Made for Google" Google Pixel Stand Wireless Charger is priced at the very healthy price of $79! They seem to finally be getting in stock now but $79 is a lot of coin for a wireless charger. Was it really that hard to support the already existing and widely available wireless fast charging (not invented by Google) ? I'd like to subtract half a star for that since Google proprietary stuffs since crippleware is a pet peeve of mine. But since I can't subtract a half star I'll round up so we're still at 4 stars. So it's mostly the build quality longevity issue with the screen that's the concern for me but only time will tell. With the black friday pricing I'm mostly happy so far the value is there. There are lots of new features that I still have not gotten into the habit of fully utilizing. If the phone still has no hardware problems after a couple of years I'd add back the star I subtracted.
