    I have small hands and Google Pixel 3 seems very small.
    Seems like iphone 5.
    Keyboard feels to narrow
    And hard to type on keyboard.

    The iPhone 5 had a 4" screen, the 5.5" screen on the Pixel 3 is considerably larger. Unfortunately I know this first hand as I have an iPhone 5 for work and a Pixel 2 personal device. The normal sized Pixel 2 has an even smaller screen than the 3 but it is still considerably larger than the iPhone.

    If the Pixel 3 is too small for you (which I have no idea how you even already have one, since they just started shipping) then you should probably just return it for an XL model... or just return it and get something else. If you have been using larger devices for some time, a Pixel sized phone is going to seem small by comparison, but once you get used to it, it is really is just about the perfect size.

    Smaller form factor -- still 5.5 screen so way bigger then the 4 inch iPhone 5.

    It wasn't all that long ago that a 5.5 size phone was the largest you could buy and was considered huge and unwieldy.

    For comparison, the height of the P3 screen is almost identical to the Nexus 6P's screen, however it's width is significantly smaller due to the 18x9 aspect ratio. The narrower width would affect keyboard sizing and usability if you're used to the older 16x9 device.

    its not iPhone 5. but feels like it.
    Narrow, thin & light.
    The Pixel 3 is so small, narrow and light. I have small hands and it was uncomfortable to type. I was expecting it to be a similar footprint to the iPhone X. but Nope.

    Most would say feeling the size of an iPhone 5 w/ a screen that is way bigger would be a good thing.

    i have been using a larger phone now since the nexus 6 days and actually looking forward using a smaller size phone with the Pixel 3. have you seen the phone in person or basing it from online information? I actually went into a bestbuy earlier this week and am very happy with my decision of going for the smaller Pixel 3. Try to go into a store to see for yourself if you haven't done so yet.

    I think it interesing how most consider the size of the P3 at 5.5" screen size to be small. How times have changed so quickly. I'm glad they kept the same overall size as the P2 in case I decide to eventually pick one up

    5.5 inch at 16/9 is more useful than 5.5 at 18/9. The extra length serves no purpose if one types in landscape mode. New 5.5 inch screens are too thin.

    Agree. It was amazing how much smaller the P3 screen was next to my 6P, even though they were the same screen height. The P3 would be a 6P perfect replacement if it was 16:9.

    yeah i agree they should have kept 5.5inch at 16:9 aspect ratio
    5.5 inch screen at 18/9 aspect ratio not good.

    My wife is finally convinced to switch from her iPhone 6s to any android phone so I'm considering getting her the smaller pixel in "not pink" but I'm a bit concerned how this aspect ratio would feel like coming from her current phone.

    Can anybody confirm if it would be similar to the Galaxy S9? I take it the screen is narrower and taller so I'm assuming you have less reading space horizontally.

    I have the 1st generation Pixel and love it.

    Here you can compare the sizes with side by side pictures on phone arena. Very similar in size, the S9 is little bigger.

    To be fair -- I remember people saying "You will never need 2 GB of RAM on a PC!" or "You will never need more then 100 GB on a hard drive!" -- Obviously tech keeps going .

    Looks tall but narrow. It's actully narrower than an iPhone 6/7/8 series. I'm going to Best Buy this weeking to check one out. Was told they should be on display by Friday.

    Again, with a case on it won't be too small/narrow.
