    P3 has enough improvements for me to stick with the smaller one. Last years P2 had a 2700 mAh battery and a 5 in. Display. The P3 has 2900+ battery and a 5.5 in. display (w/o notch). For me 5.5 could work

    I prefer smaller phones for one handed use. Prior to the Pixel line coming out, I used a Nexus 6p because it had advantages over the 5x, but I constantly had to shift the phone in my hand to reach the areas I needed to reach. I don't really have that issue with the smaller Pixel models. However I do wonder if the Pixel 3, due to it's elongated screen will give me issues in that regard. Just have to wait and see.

    I am debating if I want to get one. My daily driver currently is an iPhone XS and I love the size and optimization. I thoroughly enjoyed my original Pixel. I think the 5.5” screen on the P3 is about perfect. I prefer 5.5”-6.0”. Anything less, or more, is not my cup of tea. Therefore, if I do get one it will be the P3 instead of the P3XL.

    This will be my 3rd regular sized Pixel. I prefer that size because they are more pocketable. The way my tech is set up, I only use phones for “on the move” information and communication. More than that and I’m on a tablet or laptop.

    I have a pixel 2 and am not sure if I want to pay more for a minor upgrade. If I heard correctly I should be getting many of the upgrades via software updates.

    XL is too big for me - but tempting. Had a P1 XL briefly.

    Bixby on my S8+ I don't like, and not being able to delete carrier and Samsung apps I do not want.
    I tried but a pixel 2XL out from Best Buy.
    I liked the Pixel phone.
    So I ordered the pixel 3 XL 64 gb .

    The only 2 reasons I see are size, no wait that's only one reason.

    Yup, black 128GB through Verizon so should get a Pixel Stand as well. I originally ordered it through Google, later called to ask about the $50 credit Mike got and the rep accidentally deleted my Pixel order. Before that I was supposed to have a ship date of October 25th, and this happened 2 hrs later. So figuring my new ship date would probably be in November and Verizon's ship dates were the 18th, I went with them.

    For me, I've always preferred phones that I can use one handed. With the XLs, I can't do that. The Pixel 3 has quite a bit more screen real estate than the Pixel 2 and stays that same size so that's a win for me.

    100% Agree. I would also stick with the smaller version. There is a notchable improvement. Lol. I tried to hard there.

    Luckily we are not giving up much with the smaller version. Google isn't like Apple and dont hoard a couple features for the more expensive version. So my vote is definitely for the smaller version.

    Never liked bigged phones, I have 'medium' hands. And I don't watch movies on my phone so I don't really need all that screen. Plus... notch!

    Smaller phones are growing on me again. The s9 was 5.8 inches but still quite small compared to bigger screen devices. I love the feel in hand of the s9 and it looks like the regular pixel 3 will be just as easy to use one handed as the s9. BUT I'm getting older and my eyesight ain't what it was. Bigger display equals less squinting and pinch to zooming to read text. Initially I felt the smaller pixel 3 would be a no brainer. But since you can hide the notch, the pixel 3xl is now in play again. I'll be heading down to my local best buy and see and feel both for myself before deciding.

    Exactly. I like that all features on P3XL you'll find on P3. The only difference is screen size and battery.
