    I'm hearing it's not worth upgrading to the 4, just get the 3a xl.

    What are you ppl doing to get such weak battery life. I literally sit in an office all day watching TheXvid videos and posting memes on Facebook and I can make it thru 8 hours just fine without charging. I've got the 90hz and motion sense on as well.
    Side note: motion sense also let's you skip forward and back videos on TheXvid.

    Amazing phones nowadays, but let’s be honest. Are these really worth $900+?? (This goes for Apple too.)

    I don't understand, spec are not as spectacular, battery won't last a day, so the $1000 pricetag is partially on hardware and mostly for the design and Google experience?

    If the success rate is so bad why even use the feature. Pointless.

    When I upgraded from the S6 to the Pixel 3 XL I was skeptical of the fingerprint sensor since the S6 one was so shitty but I was really amazed at how much I preferred it. I did notice that the moment my fingers got sweaty or wet I wouldn't be able to unlock it, but that was alright since I have a smart watch set as a trusted device. But whatever, not that big of a deal that the 4 doesn't have it. I also don't use the 3's wide angle selfie camera at all, so nbd that it doesn't have it.
    But no front-facing speakers? Wtf? That was one of the best parts of having a Pixel. Showing off youtube videos to people and only having the volume up half way because the sound quality was so crisp and loud? One of my favorite parts.
    Also nobody gives a fuck about gesture controls or face unlock. I know I don't.
    IDK maybe I'll upgrade, but probably not. I think I'll just keep my 3 XL until the 5. ALSO GIVE US A BIGGER BATTERY!!!

      I know! , The double front facing speakers/cameras, the fingerprint scanner, and the minimalistic premium unique design
      It's ahead of the pixel 4 by miles.

  • t8

    Ive always wanted to get a Google Pixel, but there is always something that deters me from getting one. This time it's the face ID. It seems insignificant, but in my opinion, Apple does face ID right. You look at your iPhone, it unlocks, but you still have to swipe up to get to the home screen. It's extremely helpful just to look at the time and also I'm not a fan of the Instant unlock, it just doesn't look nice. Sure, unlocking an iPhone takes a second longer to get to the home screen, but it's aesthetically pleasing and nice to look at.

    GP4 breaks under pressure, like a Trump surrogate. GP4 is so soft, clouds have more density. GP4 is so weak, it has ankles like a toddler.

    Massive forehead.
    Weak battery.
    Little space and external card isn't allowed.
    Taking the fingerprint and putting a face ID which is less security just to walk with Apple!

    This phone wins the trash medal by every means.

    Pixel 3 XL has some hiccups thanks to Google not giving it everything it needed to truck along for longer than they would like. But I am not looking at the 4 thinking oh my goodness how I need to upgrade.

    I'd rather have a bigger forehead than a notch or hole in the screen for the camera. Think Galaxy S9. It's a beautiful phone. The rush to make all phones all screen isn't for me. But I wouldn't buy thins phone due to battery life and storage.
