    I'd buy it if it didn't cost twice as much as the OP6 here. No point when Google only sells them in a few selected countries.

    Help!I’ve been trying to buy a Pixel 3 XL but I can’t find it anywhere (I’m looking on the internet, I haven’t gone to any physical store because I don’t know where it could be sold). Any place I should look for?

    to much price for this phone. But backside is scratch on second days after unboxing - wow! Next problem is a noch - no one show us how probably working hub with notification. In Pixel 2/3 (not XL) its all good -- you just swipe normal down and seen all notification, but in Pixel Xl 2/3 you have -- what you have? You have big empty space (with microphone/camera/etc) this is not good -- in price you bought 6 inch screen but its not true 8( And you have specific popap on 3:43 Objectively this phone may cost $549 not more

    I'm wondering how the pixel camera would work for more production-style video, and how it would compare for this with the iPhone Xs and the Samsung s9. Especially with FILMIC PRO LOGV2 it could be an interesting idea to compare them for a video?

    Does the Pixel 3 keeps the battery longer due to the smaller screen ?
