    But when I heard 2xl will be getting most of the software updates I decided to wait till the 4 next year,
    That's what I heard somewhere too. In Marques Brownlee's review at the 8:01 mark he states the only software feature coming to the other Pixels is Shush Mode. Hope he's wrong.

    I will be waiting for the P4, because I have payments left and I really like the P2... BUT... that wireless charging has me waffling...

    I bought my 2XL this past summer and will likely keep it for 2 years. I will probably pick up a carrier discounted 4. Or if I'm feeling rich I will get a 5.

    Or, if BlackBerry/TCL still exist and put something out that tempts me I will go back to black.

    I'm waiting. I cannot see enough improvement to move to the P3 from my P2 and the notch, which serves zero purpose other than copying apple and giving fraction amount if screen serves zero purpose and would drive me crazy.

    Had they bumped the ram and made signifigant improvements in the camera and or even any other compelling features I'd upgrade.

    Even the trade in, $335 for my P2 XL 128gb is a joke.

    When you combine the price, low trade in and meh spec bump of the P2 XL it's easy to skip.

    I did order the new USB C ear buds however.
    A notch that serves zero purpose other than to house....

    Google said the second camera captures "184 percent more of the scene" as the iPhone XS, so if you need a wide angle the Pixel 3 might be your best bet.

    So yes... Save your money for something less meh.

    Right a camera and speaker that could have been in an upper chin made smaller with better time engineering .... Face it the notch is just to copy Apple and give the illusion of a full screen phone but it fails in function and design. But go ahead and defend your purchase.

    Got my Pixel earbuds. My concession to the P3. £30 from Google Store. They look pretty good.

    I'm getting an iPhone or OnePlus. Haven't decided yet. I would probably just keep my P2, which I generally like, but it is so laggy at times and locks up. Plus it has major issues connecting to my car through Android Auto, which is a big deal for me.

    I for one am waiting for the Pixel 4. Or at least until Google figure out how to properly hide that huge notch.

    I don't need to defend my purchase. And yes you are right... Google just wants to copy Apple.

    I'm in the same boat as you! Especially with regards to BB! I'd love to go back to them.

    My biggest concern is the lack of a 6/8 GB of ram option. My Pixel 2 XL consistently runs at 3.3GB of memory usage and it shows in the lag of day to day usage. The lack of a memory upgrade is a complete deal killer and what guarantee do I have that they won't brick a new 3 XL like they did my 2 XL!! Also the lack of 4x4 MIMO and a 256GB internal storage option. This is such an incremental upgrade and I will not pay $1000+ for a Pixel phone that does not have these options.

    You can get the note 9 about same price or cheaper and the p3 doesn't even come close. I had nothing but problems with the pixel 2 xl. I just want something that works and not get a monthly update that breaks something.

    I hope no 5G. I could see the price rise even more with that and what for a few major cities having it for the first few years.
    This makes me think back to when Sprint started charging an extra $10 a month for "data premium's" just for having a phone that was capable of faster data lol

    Finally picked up a Pixel 2 over the summer, and not seeing a big enough spec bump to make it worth the investment so soon. P4 seems more realistic for me.

    Looking forward to hearing more on the P3s once they're in peoples' hands, though.

    I started a thread about them in the pixel 3 forums with my experience. But I recommend them Cynthia.

    If TMobile had offered their credit towards the 3 xl like they did with the other pixels and i could've gotten the 3xl for around $400, I would've jumped on it. Since most of the software features are coming to the 2xl, I don't really feel the need to upgrade this year. The nicer screen and speakers are the only things tempting me

    Maybe later they will have that deal.
