    I had an iPhone XS Max before I picked up my Pixel 3 XL. It was a good device, but it wasn't great. iOS is stale. It cost too damn much. The low light photos aren't nearly as good as the Pixel. In fact, you get unlimited storage of photos and videos at the resolution you shot them on for 3 years. You don't have to pay for iCloud anymore. I'm glad I went with the Pixel over the iPhone.

    I currently own both the Iphone X and the Pixel 3 and I love both of them. The Pixel just does the job without any BS. The IpX is also great. One thing I like about the Iphone X is that both speakers work on calls, not just the bottom one like the Pixel 3. Also, the resolution is better on the Iphone X. I also have an Apple watch, for which I need the Iphone X. You can't go wrong with either.

    Now that I had the Pixel 3 for a few days, here are my initial thoughts and impressions. I did play with the S9 and the iPhone XS in-store before acquiring the Pixel 3.

    Likes:
    - Performance.
    - Plethora of settings and features vs iOS. Love the fact that I can organize the home screen whichever way I want vs iOS's "no gaps grid" layout.
    - Camera.
    - Rapid wireless charging.
    - Google Assistant is much more practical.

    Dislikes:
    - No face/eyes login options of any kind.
    - Google Assistant is missing some of the features of the Google Home devices. Notable for me is setting a Radio Alarm.
    - Battery discharges faster than expected.
    - Back-facing fingerprint reader is nice. But I often unlocked my iPhone 6 while it was sitting on the table, and the only way to unlock the Pixel 3 is to lift it. Wit no face/eye unlock of any kind, it's a bit awkward.
    - Reminders not going off. Doesn't matter if set via Google Assistant or manually.
    - Default email client mail is severely delayed or syncs at completely random times.

    Will update more later on, in the meantime, feel free to comment on something I may have misunderstood under the "dislikes".

    Yes, believe it or not, some people still prefer those over anything else.

    Mine wife does. There are not many phones that have radio capabilities and some that do are disabled by the carrier. Also they need earbuds plugged in that work as an antenna. There are some music/radio streaming apps that allow an alarm. IHEART radio app allows an alarm I believe.

    Yeah, so just to be clear, Google Assistant on Google Home devices use TuneIn. You get stream-level quality, rather than FM quality. I would never use them over FM.

    Just received my Pixel 3XL and boxed up my Note 8. Incredibly happy so far. To me Keep it Simple beats Let's Stuff as Much As Possible any day!! Setup was so easy.
