    I wouldn't put all iPhone users in one bucket. Using Android is just as easy. It is easier to screw some things up if you delve into areas with little knowledge. I actually find certain things in IOS less intuitive and I use both platforms.
    Yeah not all but good amount, I use both platforms also ...I cant stand ios for not putting your apps where u want and just spring back up

    Traditional yes, Android has been a place for the more tech savvy consumer for sure. BUT I think the system has become more user-friendly since Lollipop, IMO.

    Still though, a Samsung can be a bit intimidating for the "outta the box" consumer.
    You think so?...I love the way my s9+ is but then again you have like 2 play stores like Google and Samsung apps i can see that as a learning curve but pixel out the box is much user friendly

    I agree with you. Samsung isn't difficult, but you start adding in third party messaging apps, contact management etc and it can get unruly for people unfamiliar with that type of UI navigation.

    ...and I could only use iOS as a second choice. That OS drives me up the wall every time I've touched it.

    Four reasons I will take the Pixel Notch over a Samsung 9 series


    TouchWiz
    Edge to edge screen
    Slow updates
    Samsung service

    They would have to eliminate or improve as applicable all 4 of of those items for me to buy it over the Pixel. I didn't mention the cartoonish screen colors because that's not a deal breaker. Don't get me wrong....they make a great product but it's not for me.

    You know, I probably have a different approach to my tech than many people. For me, I start with services and UX. So years ago when I decided to put Google at the center, my device decisions were, and still are, driven by what devices support Google's service the absolute best. The closer a device can bring me to that user experience is what I want to buy.

    Probably one of the reasons I don't fully get the whole spec sheet discussion we go on ad nauseam. At the end of it all, user experience is what matters the most, IMO. That's why Apple can sell phones for $1,000 and up with a remedial spec sheet. Because they are selling lifestyle tech, as it's been said more than once in these threads.

    Google is looking to do the same, I believe, but bring a different message. One that they know better than any other tech company in the world, curating answers and solutions for users. They can do it too, but they need to stay on message and not get distracted by the naysayers.

    I'm the same way. Once I decided Google's services were for me, I jumped all in so that all my smart gadgets would be seamless.

    My phones, apps, all my home automation stuff, speakers, tvs, etc, either are made by Google, collaborated on by Google or have the assistant baked in. Because like you mentioned, it's a whole user experience that is just so seamless and easy. Most don't go to the same extent with the gadgets, but it's still that experience they're looking for.

    These threads and forums are not indicative of the actual market or the average consumer. I'd say if we were going by the threads alone here it might be split and not the majority. There are many on the fence and waiting to see the final product because the notch is not necessarily a deal breaker by itself. There are also many who complain about the notch that have no intention of buying a Pixel regardless of the notch.
    When I said all over I meant all over the internet, social media, co-workers, you tube etc, and yes, even here on the forums, but I didn't mean JUST here on the forums, I meant INCLUDING the forums. I thought that was fairly clear as well. I guess I need to be clearer ;-) I'll work on wording my posts better :-)

    My statement still applies to many of the other sites you mention.

    But the forums in no way represent what pixel owners as a population want, or expect.
    You are right in that the forums here are a mixed representation of users. Sometimes even a small sample of them.

    So were a day closer, and it seems somebody is saying because of the Plug in earphones. That's right now the wireless ones, that like the 64GB version of the Pixel 3 is gonna cost like 1000.00 or upwards of that.
    That is a awful lot of money for a phone, and it ain't even the 128GB model.
    Is that how you get as Big as Samsung and Iphone, by how much you charge for your phone.

    I surely hope yer right.
    Because I wanted one.

    But for 1000.00, it kinda stops you in yer tracks.

    With no SD card. Not enough battery power. Not enough memory.
    Just to get started.

    It has almost the same size battery as the 2XL and that has been great.

    Well for one I expected them to be a little more in touch with their customer base.....and the pixel 2's were much more in line I think with what pixel owners wanted in a phone.... me included ;-) That gigantic notch is really over the top, and if they plan on pricing these phones similarly to Apple and Samsung's flagships, 4 gigs of RAM and 64 and 128 gigs of storage with no sd card support just isn't going to cut it.

    Even with those specs they can still be very good phones....... if the price is right :O My current original pixel has similar specs and it's a great phone, but I only payed $350 for it brand new. That's part of the reason it's a great phone. At $1000 it would be a very poor phone, because that would put it in a whole different league of competition...... although it was definitely worth more than I payed for it ;-)

    I wanted to add that I really enjoy pixel phones and don't plan on owning anything else. I will NEVER pay the ridiculous prices Samsung are asking (which has caused a 20% drop in sales and caused them to start focusing more on the budget/mid-range phone segment.... you can do a quick Google search on that), and I'll never own an apple phone because of pricing and the fact they are always getting caught doing something to their older phones with updates to slow them down/take away features etc just to force folks to upgrade. Very shady company :-(

    Pixels are for me because of the cameras, monthly security/maintenance updates, and os updates that are sent out when promised..... not a year later (if at all) for all the updates like Samsung, Moto, or most any other Android phone manufacturer I can think of. So don't get me wrong, I'm a huge pixel fan, just not of the pixel 3 leaks/possible prices and specs. Of course I'll still pick one up in a couple years super cheap and enjoy the hell out of it lol.
    Just so you know, Apple's iPhones have 4GB RAM and 64GB storage.
