    I'm most definitely not going to get the Pixel 3 XL because of the hideous notch and I also find the 2 XL to be too large of a phone anyway. I am torn between getting the regular Pixel 3 and Samsung Galaxy S9. The pricing is pretty comparable here in Canada between the two, so that's not really a factor here.

    The S9 isn't that small

    @rMBA13 Lot of factors go into a choice like that. Could you be more specific about why you’re considering either phone?

    between these 2, pixel 3 definitely wins because of much faster software updates and clean-stock android.
    we can argue on camera and design but for me both cameras are the top and although s9 prettier, imo, it is neglected

    He left out major league pros from the Pixel....in fact, more like All Stars.

    Probably not going to get much support for the s9 since this is a pixel forum after all.

    IMO the Pixel 3 and s9 are sized fairly close to one another as well as the Pixel 2 which I currently have. The factor of receiving timely updates is a personal decision, if that doesn't matter then the S9 is fine. And you can always use Google photos on the S9 and have high quality photos stored with unlimited storage, which is an option.

    I feel like I'm the only person who doesn't mind notches. Who said a screen has to be rectangular?

    I have the s9 and am seriously considering switching to the Pixel 3. Every Samsung I've owned becomes laggy, my s9 camera freezes and lags from time to time

    I have an S8 and while the new Pixels are definitely nice and faster than my phone, it's not really enough of an upgrade imo. Nothing innovative about this iteration. I believe I'll wait for the P4.

    I was really hoping this would be the year I moved to Googles Android, but it's just not enough. I'm disappointed.

    Yes the S8 is still good enough. There are at least two Samsung design elements I want leave behind (curved screens, TW, bloatware) which is why I was so excited for the new Pixel.

    Android pie has been stable for me since the beta on the 2xl. If the camera weighs heavily in your decision, the pixel 3 will be the obvious choice. I bought the s9+ with plans of passing my 2xl to my wife, but it only took a 5 minute camera comparison for me to decide to give her the 9+.

    It seemed like photos indoor or in less than perfect lighting produced soft pics on the 9, especially in skin tones. I haven't regretted keeping the 2xl at all, so I'm sure the pixel 3 with a better screen and speakers that are closer to the quality of the 9's speakers will make you plenty happy.

    Personally I don't care about innovation, I just want my phone to work right when I need it. I've missed some good pictures and videos of my puppy because the camera was slow to open and or froze. I need the basic stuff to work right but I understand everyone has different needs/wants

    My friends and family have an s9/s9+ and I use the pixel 2. Obviously I used all the cameras when we went to a scenic place. The more reliable and ease of use was my pixel 2. But this is only if you want a good reliable camera on your phone

    I am in a similar boat. I have the Note9, and love it, but really want the P3. I love the Note but miss stock android and that camera.
