    Well I don't think it's silly. I'm not touching the outside body of my car while I'm driving. I am however always touching the body of my phone every time I'm using it. So to me, I do want something that feels great in the hand. Didn't think the Pixel 2 XL felt great. Felt like a cheapish plastic phone to me and at $850, it certainly was not in line with other high-end smartphones around the same price range.

    Metal is a fine material, but covering it in the coating was not a good idea imo. Not sure why it was added, maybe to hide the antenna lines, but I don't think it was worth it. Maybe Google don't think it was worth it either, hence why they're ditching it in the Pixel 3.
    I'm done with this conversation. Point was your hand is still touching metal.

    "Paint" and "plastic" are not the same word.
    That was my point haha, thank you.

    Look quite nice. The glass will be stunning and looks like the bottom part of the back of the phone will be a frosted/matte glass. I like the look of it quite a bit. Much more sophisticated/well thought than the previous Pixel.

    I really like it! And I too think that it is very sophisticated-looking!

    Roundup of Pixel 3 leaks so far from Android Central:



    Good video. Agree with Alex Dobie's comment about hoping the display quality is a big step up from last year's lacklustre Pixel 2 XL display. And yeah, 4gb ram seems a bit odd. Hope that it's just an early prototype and the final moves towards 6gb. A lot of other flagship phones seem to have 6gb ram and 128gb, would be great if Google moves that way too.

    Well it is my opinion that changing the back to all glass is better than before with the P2/2XL. I look nicer aesthetically, it allows for wireless charging which metal did not, and feels better in the hand over metal with plastic coating over it.

    So knowing what the P2XL looks and feels like to knowing it's going to a glass build, imo it's a great change. Very glad Google aren't going with the P2/2XL metal/plastic coating this year. Plus wireless charging is a bonus. Maybe Google could bundle wireless chargers for those who preorder or something.
    Why don't you just get an iPhone? Everything you post tries to turn everything into an iPhone. Are you an iPhone user? You sure sound like it.

    WE DON'T WANT iPHONE CLONES. Glass backs are stupid. They break, they scuff, they require cases, they are dumb, stupid and idiotic. Here we go again with this "premium feel" trash that popped up last year.

    So what would you like to see with the 3 & 3 XL?
    Since I've given up hope for a headphone jack, it's much of what you've already mentioned.
    The #1 thing for me is a 256GB (or more) storage model. Without microSD expansion, that is the minimum that I will accept in a phone.

    Signs point to a Pixel 3 with bezels similar to the 2XL, while in the smaller form factor. That is very much appealing.

    More color options, none of them carrier specific (looking at Verizon).

    Your phone options are pretty limited then.

    Some more Pixel 3/3 XL leaks: https://www.mysmartprice.com/gear/20...e-rear-camera/

    Article says the 3XL at least might have 6gb ram which is good to hear. Phone design looks ok. Interested to see what the singe rear camera can do.

    The article says, "There is no word yet on how much RAM or storage the third-generation Pixel phones will offer, although we would like to see Google equip at least the Pixel 3 XL with 6GB of RAM." It does not say it might have 6 GB, it says they want 6GB. That said, the entire statement is false, because it says, "There is no word yet..." - and there is.

    The leak that showed the fastboot screen clearly states the following:

    DRAM: 4 GB Micron LPDDR4X (means 4 GB RAM)
    UFS: 128 GB Micron (means 128 GB storage option exists)
    The baseband version was also included and translates to a SnapDragon 845

    That was a pre-production model. Might not have the final specs.

    The 4GB RAM leak was based on an early engineering prototype so I wouldn't be surprised if the final model comes with 6GB RAM.

    The all glass back would be a deal breaker mainly due to durability issues. Haven't used wireless charging since the Nexus 6 and don't think a glass back makes a phone more premium. I've had phones with soft touch plastic, matte ceramic, anodized aluminum and painted metal that feel more premium than glass.
