    Kind of early to tell

    I just received and set up my phone this week so it is too early to determine how the phone will work longterm. I can say that I like the size of the screen. As someone over 50 who wears bifocals, the phone became much easier to use when I increased the size of the icons and text. Though this phone is an android and I'm replacing an android, it is taking some time to figure out where everything is and how it all works. PIctures appear to be very vivid and that will be nice when taking trips or gathering with family/friends.

    Bad Choice of Phone

    The only thing this phone has going for it is the amazing pictures that it takes. Though the camera is slow and glitchy. I have on this phone for about 3 months and headphones have stopped working. Google even sent me new headphones and those did not work. When the battery is low a lot of the functions don't work on this phone. Also, this phone has issues playing video.it does not transition while from horizontal to vertical and vice versa with video. I have also had issues connecting to Wi-Fi with this phone. Not worth the price.

    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!

    Fast, incredibly user friendly, and a camera that beats all the smart Phones. This is the only phone I recommend to friends and family looking to go Android, and all I usually have to do is show them a photo taken by it to convince them. Also, Google Assistant is way more helpful. 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! I love this phone.

    Great phone - forget the notch talk

    I've been using the pixel 2 XL for the last 5 days today, I switched to the pixel 3XL, because if the great Black Friday deal. Forget about the notch talk! This phone still has more screen room, I like how the time and the little icons are on each side of the notch. The wide angle portrait group selfie is incredible! The 3XL is faster and the screen is brighter and sharper. Using default text / font settings I use reading glasses sometimes and I don't use them all with this 3XL. It's faster running android 9 pie. I hope this helps.

    I kind of wish I had returned it within the allotted time.... I really considered it.. The camera was SLIGHTLY better than my old iPhone 7plus.. but that's about the only good thing.. it's slow. Apps are constantly crashing or not working right.. it seems like developers maybe focus more on their iPhone apps vs the Android.. or maybe iOS is just easier for them to deal with.. IDK.. either way it makes me miss my iPhone big time.. The back of the phone easily scratches. I'll just be giving it to my husband who likes Android so I can go back to iPhone....

    DO NOT BUY THE VERIZON Pixel 3. Buy the Unlocked or the Google fi version. They both will work with Verizon and any other supported carrier BUT the VERIZON Pixel 3 Has hardware left out of the phone! Mainly eSIM. The huge plus with the Pixel 3 is that you don't need a SIM card to use the phone on many different carriers. Well the Verizon Pixel doesn't have an eSIM! WHY??? I just bought a Pixel that isn't really a Pixel phone because it's missing features that make it a Pixel device. So incredibly frustrating. DO NOT BUY THE VERIZON PIXEL.

    This phone is fast, easily customized to suit your needs, and best of all, it is guaranteed to receive the latest Android updates for 3 full years. It already starts out with the latest version OS. ( Android Pie). I'm not one to chase the latest trends so I was looking for the best value and longevity available. All the bonuses of being a Google product are wonderful. The camera is great. It takes some time to optimize the phone but there is a wealth of help tips and support available.

    I have been a long time Samsung user as I have always liked the quality of their equipment. I still am but it seems like the additional "Samsung apps" (Bixby, fitness, etc.) became more of a nuisance than a help. What I like about this phone is it's all based around Android and the apps that the user wants. I am considering switching over Fi as well to maybe do some bill shrinking. I still have to pay off a couple of devices before I do.

    Bad screen and single camera

    900$+tax for a 420nits screen? 900$+tax for a single camera ? There is a new breed of fanboys, Google AI ones, that think Google algorithms can replace the zoom lens even though the main sensor is the very same one as in other flsgships. The choice is simple - LG V40 for that money, or OP6 for much less. What people don't understand is that Pixel 3 team DOES NOT need to sell good what they make in order to keep their jobs. They are not the people who can invent. They are in the same league as Chrysler for example.

    Super Camera

    I had the Pixel 2 and this is simply better in many ways. I had the P2 for photos and this phone takes them to a new level. I especially like the wide lens selfie that lets me take easy family shots. Also, night sight has been improved so that shaking does not really effect the pictures that much. Summary, best camera on a phone today with unlimited cloud storage of photos in original quality on google cloud. Maybe not worth $1k over P2 but if you are switching higly recommended

    I switch from an Iphone 6S to this pixel 3xl and have not looked back. There is not one phone out there today that does everything well. I like to think that this one hits the most checkmarks for me. I do wish it had the 3.5mm headphone jack. The adapters have not been an issue so far. The screen is crystal clear and the camera is amazing. Stock android is the only way to go and what lead me to this phone over the s9+. If your are looking at the phone give it a try.

    I've been riding on Samsung's phones for a while and decided I was tired of pretty much the same phone after another so I've had my eye on this phone for a while. I've had it for over a month and I'm still learning new things. I still feels like the familiar android, but with tons of new features. I've yet to use the phone for what it's really advertised for which is the camera. I've played around with it, but I'm excited to use it for my upcoming trip to Scotland!

    Pixel 3 xl Fantastic

    Purchased two Pixel 3xl from BB two weeks ago, coming from a Samsung s8. I will say the Pixel is a great product and I am very pleased with the quality, speed and functionality of the phone. I like the fact that it does not have the bloat ware the Samsung carried and I like the quick updates I receive. It is fast, light and easy to use. The price was right at $450 compared to the Note 9 $999 price tag.... I you are leaning towards the pixel, do it and you will be happy.

    I jumped from the iPhone with hesitation and I'm so glad I did. I've shared photos I've taken on this phone and so many people have asked what camera I use because of how great the pictures look. I even had a friend tell me that this phone's camera is going to put professional photographers out of business when she saw the stunning pictures I've taken.

    I have literally no complaints. It's fast, it's beautiful, it works. The fingerprint reader on the back is my favorite feature, it's a very convenient spot. Quick and secure unlocking. You can also use it to pull down the notification bar. I was worried about the notch, but the top middle of the screen is literally never used, go ahead, look up there now... It doesn't interfere with videos when in full screen mode. The phone is great, you should get one.

    I have had the original Pixel, the Pixel 2 and now the Pixel 3 (all XL's). These are great phones and a great alternative to Samsung, other Android's or even Apple. The cameras are amazing, I use the squeeze feature all the time to queue my phone, and the battery lasts a very long time. The phone does not seem to bug up like Samsung's do. Also Google gives you extra cloud space for picture storage. This phone has all the features you need!!!

    I upgraded from the first gen Pixel to this one. At first I didn't think I'd wanted the larger phone, but after using my husbands for a minute, I realized the larger size helped reduce my fat finger texting errors. The camera on this thing is the best! I have an odd obsession of taking pictures of my kids while they are sleeping, and the night light on this camera makes the pics come out great! So far I don't have any complaints...

    Best Android Phone Ever.

    The Google Pixel XL is a triumph in the phone world. Clean operating Android 9, gorgeous screen with great color fidelity and a fast camera that is capable of shooting in near darkness. There are plenty of other camera options like, spherical, panorama, microburst stills. Slow motion and artistic shots. I traded in my nearly new LG G7 ThinQ piece of rubbish and took a massive loss in doing so, but the Pixel has everything down to a science.

    I had a samsung s7 for the past 2 years. it was time for an upgrade. it was either the pixel or the samsung note 9. decided to get the pixel. it comes down to the S Pen. If i thought i would use it, i would go with the samsung note. The pixel gives you great photos, updates when they are released, and some cool features. The note and pixel are very similar and i dont think anyone would be unhappy with either. Im happy with the pixel 3xl.
