    I'm a Pixel 1 owner who's willing to wait until the Pixel 4, or until my phone stops working satisfactorily. Honestly removing the headphone jack was a pretty big dealbreaker for me, enough to make the Pixel 1 a better phone than its successors for me.

    I'll wait at least until the P4 will be released. Got the P2XL right now and since it will be supported until 2020 I see no reason to switch now. Plus I don't see to many improvements on the P3

    Holding on to my 2 XL. The notch is awful, many of the new software updates are coming to the other Pixels, minimal spec bump, a price increase, and only a $325 trade in for the current gen XL 64GB as opposed to $400 last year. Big miss by Google this year.

    I have the updated google cam app installed. Can save in RAW mode, enhanced bokeh mode and the photos are already better.

    The original Pixel phone is awesome and I feel like I'm in the minority here, but I actually love its hardware. Glad you are enjoying it!

    I generally wait until my existing phone's battery life or performance drops low enough to be irritating, usually 3-4 years. For serious photography I'd rather use a dedicated camera. I think it's silly to chase the top end, it changes too fast.

    The more I think about it the more I think I'm going to wait for the pixel 4. Totally happy with my 128 GB Pixel 2. And will get many of the software features discussed at the 3 launch. So why spend a bunch more for a minor upgrade. Unless of course there's some super sweet Black Friday deal for the 3.

    Can't justify the cost versus the value received. Not enough different or better bells and whistles.
    Returned recently from a trip and the P2's cam is all the awesomeness I need in a camera. Perfect shots everytime, so not a good reason to upgrade for that. For me the gesturing required to navigate homescreens is a downside also. If I can put that off another year or longer all the better. If I need a new phone next year I might consider a P3 then as it will no doubt be cheaper. I think the phone makers of the world are struggling to come out with innovations. The good ones have been done. Upgrades are incremental in that regard. I shall just sit this one out and enjoy living vicariously thru the forum and see how the P3's play out. And, enjoy the cash saved for something else.

    Did Google already release the camera update? Or did you have to manually load it?

    Nothing at all wrong with waiting for the 4 especially since the Pixel 2 has an extra year of warranty. There are some camera features that won't carry over but nothing that you can't live without. I still second guess my decision to upgrade but I'm moving forward. I've reached the point of my life where I'm not going to deprive myself of something even if it's seems foolish to spend the money.

    My daughter has the 1 and I have the 2. She said there's no way she's giving it up yet. And that's how I feel about the 2.

    That's great....my daughter got the iPhone X last year and she's already drooling over the MAX.

    I hear you. The big factor for me is the price hike. I'm just SMH. Using the same 845 chip in all the other flagships, no change to RAM or storage, and changing to an all glass back for wireless charging just aren't enough for me. The fast charger on the 2 is plenty quick for me.

    Oh wow. And the max is even more expensive than the 3XL. It's sad that the manufacturer's keep bumping up the prices. But as long as people pay it they're not going to change. Just my two pfennig.

    Said this on another post but here I go again.

    From some of the rumours it is the HTC design team making the P4. So hoping it will be a more innovative design next year. It's as if the old Google team decided to just phone it in this year. The P3 is like the 's' iteration on iPhones. An incremental update. Not a fully fledged new design at all. And the P3XL is like some weird P2XL/iPhone X hybrid clone thingy.

    A proper upgrade for someone with a 2 year old OG Pixel but not worth it really for a proud 2/2XL owner.

    I think the the upgrade is much more than an "S" style iteration.

    I am keeping my P2XL 128GB Panda version. The trade in price was not very enticing.
    I will keep an eye out on Swappa / eBay for a Pixel 3 starting November.
    I am guessing there might be a few good deals around the time Samsung launches the S10 so most likely I will pick one up at that time.

    I upgraded from Nexus 6P to Pixel 2 XL because I didn't think there was much of a benefit in 1st gen Pixel.

    Although I can tolerate it, I'm not too happy with the screen issues of Pixel 2 XL.

    All good things coming to 3 XL - camera features updates, IP68 upgrade, better screen (hopefully), security update, etc have inspired me to order the white Pixel 3 XL.

    By the way, my current Pixel 2 XL is black while most of my old phones have always been white. I guess 2 XL was really not meant to be. White 2 XL was sold out when I got it last year and I wanted to have the new phone on a trip. Which unfortunately did not arrive before my flight because the person that processed my order did not expedite shipping although it was paid for. Can't wait to get my hands on the 3 XL.

    Isn't the Pixel 4 the one that the HTC team will be building? I think it will be worth the wait.

    If the prices of the 2 come down to about half price like the 1 did I'll pick up a 2xl...... otherwise I'll wait until the 3 is no longer the latest and greatest and pick one up new dirt cheap. That's the nice thing about liking niche phones, they don't sell as well so there's always last year's models available, new, well after the new models have come out. If you're willing to stay a step or two behind you can have flagship phones for budget prices ;-)

    Thought about it for 10 min but when I heard 2xl will be getting most of the software updates I decided to wait till the 4 next year,
