    I felt that way....prefer it didn't have a notch but it doesn't break the deal for me. You can always run notches mode.

    I'll bite on the speculation, for the sake of discussion.

    I think the P3 would look okay, the XL ... well.. mixed. I'm not a fan of notches, though like the headphone jack, would probably get over it somewhat quickly if I was interested in the XL version. The camera location and the top speaker in the notch on the XL would be a little troubling.

    If the smaller P3 comes out something like that in the actual release, I'm a buyer.

    I am totally OK with this design.

    But then again, I'm not a soldier in the war against bezels.

    I don't understand the hatred of bezels. They help you have somewhere to hold the phone. I think they don't look too bad. Maybe I used iPhones for too long. I prefer a bezel to a notch ANY day.

    For me a notch would be very disappointing and would give me pause for thought about a Pixel 3 XL.

    If the Pixel 3 XL will have a notch then so will the Pixel 4 XL. Android P is made for phones with Notches. Unless Android Q will be made with no Notches in mind. Google likes following iCrap. This is so disappointing!

    Hopefully tech may move on enough to remove the need for a notch by the time the P4 comes around. Here is hoping.

    I don't mind the notch on my 2, but nothing in the "leak" makes me want to jump. Two front cameras? Yawn. Two main cameras, maybe, to increase the dynamic range even further. But HDR+ seems to be pretty good.

    I think it's hilarious! If these leaks are true the Pixel 3 XL is truly hideous looking but the Pixel 3 itself looks decent.

    If you turn the notch off it would look pretty much like the Pixel 2XL does now running P, except the notifications would be up higher.

    Love the Pixel 3 look. If it's the same size as my Pixel 2 with small bezels, a 5.5" 18:9 display and the same internals as the 3 XL I'm down for the smaller one for sure. A battery size bump would be nice too.

    I can only hope the renders of the 3XL are false. The notch looks hideous and there seems to be no point to trying to grab a little extra screen real estate at the top corners of the phone if you're going to have a sizable chin at the bottom. This set up does nothing to improve the user experience. IF this render is accurate, then all the vision and forward thinking Google puts into Android does not appear to extend to their hardware. They might as well partner with Apple for their hardware.

    Pixel design is clearly following. It looks to never be a leader in some new design or tech. It just seems to be a step back. The smaller Pixel 3 looks better than the Pixel XL 3. If I had a Pixel XL 3, I'd toggle the software to remove the notch, first thing!

    I have the original Pixel and still see no reason to upgrade.

    If close to accurate, I'm leaning standard Pixel. Unless it's LCD. But I'm reserving judgment.

    I don't mind the notch but if we can do this with software I think it'll ease some people's hatred..

    With a 2 year warranty, there is no need to switch from the pixel 2 anytime soon unless the camera somehow becomes dslr quality in the pixel 3. I think a lot of us are in the same boat with you.

    No to the notch. I'd rather have a bit of of bezel for camera and speaker.

    I mean...really? there are already bezel less smartphones out there? It would just look old instantly....
