    Amazing phone

    I was a bit worried about some of the mixed reviews I'd seen on the Pixel 3, but decided that I hated Samsung enough that I was ready to move away from their phones. I'm glad that I took the chance! It is amazingly responsive, the screen is beautiful, the camera is nice (it might be amazing, I don't know what to look for in order to make that determination). The form factor is very comfortable! The one problem I have: To quick-charge the phone you have to use a charger that is developed with Google, so your Samsung charger WILL NOT work. Those new chargers are about $20 more expensive than others. Oh well...

    I've had this phone for 2 months now, it's very quick and responsive. I had the original pixel xl and upgraded to the 3 XL. I use it with my connected devices and Google home and I love the convenience it offers. I bundled the pixel stand with a new case and car charger and saved some money. Porting from my old phone to new phone was seamless, I have a lot of work apps that require special security features and they connected without difficulty. All of my Bluetooth devices connected easily as well. I use the phone with a Bluetooth headset working a 10 hour day and have more than 50% battery at the end of the day.

    Was worried about hardware not being on par with some of the other major flagships like samsung but I was worried for nothing. The fact that you get a clean stock Android is awesome and makes up for that plus with prioritized updates above other devices, unlimited photo and video at full resolution with best camera and assistant on any Android, there is little room to complain. Screen is great and speakers are loud. Plus the active edge with built in Google assistant is just great!

    Ok phone

    This phone is ok. Coming off an iPhone 6, but have had and used Samsung's, HTCs as well. Phone works ok, but sometimes apps don't open properly, and the finger ID on back is a little more of an inconvenience I think then apples placement. But not a big deal. My biggest gripe is the battery life. If you play just a few games or watch any video, the battery goes super quick. iPhone 6 would last all day doing same usage but this one I have to charge by evening. Charges quick but maybe because battery is so small. But if I recall Samsung's battery on the 8 edge was about the same.

    AMAZING CAMERA ON THIS PHONE

    I WOULD GIVE THIS PHONE A 4.5. MY LAST PHONE WAS A SAMSUNG S7, SO I WAS OVERDUE FOR AN UPGRADE. I BOUGHT THIS PHONE BASED ON ALL THE REVIEWS OF THE CAMERA. IT DID NOT DISAPPOINT IN THAT REGARD. BESIDES THE CAMERA, THE PHONE SUITS MY NEEDS. I AM NOT INTO GAMES OR WATCHING VIDEOS ON MY PHONE, SO I CAN'T SPEAK ON HOW WELL THOSE PLAY OUT ON THE PHONE. I CAN MAKE CALLS, CHECK MY SOCIAL MEDIA SITES, AND TAKE PICTURES. THAT'S WHAT I USE MY PHONE FOR. I DO NOTICE THAT THIS PHONE IS SLIGHTLY SLOWER THAN THE S7 WAS IN LOADING PAGES, BUT IT'S NOT SO MUCH THAT IT'S A DEAL BREAKER.

    Wife's original Pixel died. She wanted NOT Pink but they didn't have it in stock at the stores. I ordered it via Best Buy, it came about a week later once the color was available. Transferring her files, pictures, contacts was a synch. Just a couple of clicks and everything transferred from her Google account. Even including her apps that were installed from the original Pixel. The phone itself is very pretty (her words). Phone is fast. Plenty of space (128 GB). She loved her original Pixel. Loves the 3 XL even more. Happy wife. Happy Life. :)

    Moved to Pixel 3 XL after a long stint with the Samsung Galaxy. This is a huge improvement over the Galaxy S7. Pages load faster, navigation is quick, multitasking is actually possible! Camera is amazing especially the night shoot option. I don't even notice the notch many people worry about. It is there but never obstructs any phone operations. Only disappointment is the lack of external SD card slot. Would have liked to have the extra storage without the extra cost of buying a larger phone. All aside, definitely glad I moved to this phone.

    Had the phone for a week now and it does everything that I need it to do. I wanted a phone that took great pictures, good phone service, light OS, and easy use of Googles services. The battery life last me all day (much better than the old Samsing S6 that I had before this phone). Many have complained about the notch but it hasn't bothered me so far. Maybe I've gotten used to it. My wife waited to see how this phone did before buying her a new phone. After seeing my Pixel 3 XL for a week, she is now going to get one for herself.

    I've only had my Pixel 3 XL for a few days now, but I absolutely love it! The battery is forever and charges quickly, the camera is the best you can get on a phone, the screen is brilliant, and the features provided by the Assistant are amazing. My only two issues are the notch, which isn't terrible but I don't like it, and the non-standard USB charging. You'll need an adapter to charge in your car - but since the battery lasts a long time that hasn't been an issue.

    Clean Android OS / hardware is weak

    I have been in the wirless telecon industry 20+ years. I am not an apple fan. I appreciate the freedom of Android OS. I have had my Pixel 3 XL less than 2 weeks. There are two cracks in my screen somehow. They don't start at the edge and spider out...they are in the center of the screen. I don't crack my screens...ever. I still have a Nexus 6P I use in my vehicle that has zero cracks. I am happy with the camera and the software. Disappointed that a $1000 phone is made so cheaply.

    I got this phone after having a Samsung Note 8 and I really liked that phone. This phone is smooth and really responsive. Most everyone has made an issue about the notch but after having the phone for a while I actually kinda like the notch believe it or not! The OS reminds me a little Apple because of how smooth and simple it is. The screen on the phone is beautiful and the camera is the best. The phone has not giving me any problems at all and it’s been nothing but great!

    I've had my Pixel 3 XL now for just a few days, but it's my favorite phone since the original Razr. Android P is a phenomenal product, and the pure Google software experience is second to none. The AI features built into the phone really differentiate it from other Android phones, and the call screening function in particularly literally makes my day better. Extremely pleased with the purchase - especially catching the Best Buy Black Friday deal on it.

    I purchased the Pixel 3xl to replace a Samsung S7 edge. I chose the 128 gb version as this phone does not have an SD card slot. Very happy with the performance. Very fast,much better sound then the S7 edge. The camera is also first class. If you are looking for a new phone,please consider the Pixel. PS you also get unlimited uploads at full resolution to Google Photos as well as 3 years of timely software updates.

    I love this phone. Works well....beautiful screen and gorgeous pictures. But I have one problem....the battery. The minute you start using the phone the battery starts going down. By the time I get home at the end of the day the battery is down to 40% and thats not even 12 hours. Need to have a phone with a good battery that takes me through at least 24 hours...too bad...as I said I really like the phone.

    This phone is incredibly smart and easy to use. It looks amazing and it has a bunch of practical functions that coming in handy in so many situations, such as the constant running song recognition and the lens. Only hickup is that in it's normal state it uses a lot of battery due to many of these functions, but if you use battery saving mode that issue goes away as well. Super satisfied and would recommend 10/10 times

    I am a bit of a phone snob, and very picky. This device checks all of my boxes. Its fast, screen looks great, notch is indeed bigger than anything i have seen before, but after a few days no longer seems to be any obstruction. fingerprint scanner is in a great location, wireless charging, front firing stereo speakers, and loaded with more features than i could ever even use. I love it.

    An awesome mobile experience - works smoothly and brings ideas or help to me. Valuable personal assistant - replaces many other tools and puts them into one pocket sized tool. Used one month and no problems or complaints. Tips section continues to surprise and amaze how Pixel 3 can make my life easier.

    This is my first departure from Samsung and it was the Pixel 3XL or the Note 9 (which my wife has) and I love it. I love the native Android experience and the ease of use with the new Pie OS. It's fast and has NO carrier bloatware which is one of the main reasons I chose this phone. Takes amazing pictures and the new night shot is incredible!

    Great phone super smooth, ultra premium build quality, great reception for data and voice, fast charging, best phone camera evar, so many positives. The only non-glowing thing to be mentioned is the notch - some have expressed severe dislike but honestly I don't even notice it and I'm glad it's there the screen has more usable space with it.
