    Greetings all. Just purchased my first Pixel phone. I got the XL version since I love having big phones.

    I currently using a Huawei Mate 9, which is a fantastic phone. Great performance and amazing battery life. I really have no reason to change phones, but being an IT guy, I always have that itch to get the latest and greatest gadget.

    So I went went with the 3 XL after researching the specs and love the picture quality I've seen.

    I dont have it yet, since I ordered it from Google.

    Is there anything I should keep an eye out for?

    Also, since it's coming from Google, is there any bloatware crap?

    Thanks all!

    Welcome to the Pixel family! There is no bloatware on Pixels, just pure stock android. There are several Google apps pre-installed, like Gmail, Play Music, etc, but I would think those apps are used regularly especially if you are in the Android eco-system.

    Enjoy the new phone!!

    Thought I would say congrats as well. I also purchased on Google Tuesday the 3xl for 749.00 wish Verizon could match that price in store. It is supposed to be delivered today. Grabbed a UAG Monarch Case for it looks good but thinking maybe should have stayed with Otterbox Defender that I always buy My Turbo 2 was losing sim card connections to often so figured time to do it. Almost went with the Moto Z3 but after some research went pixel 3XL.
    Lets us know your thought when you get it up and running

    Just the normal Google Suite that is on all Android phones.
