    Could always wait for the hoped-for 4a, which should build on the 3a's success and quality.

    Never thought about that guess it would depend on how much of a sacrifice you’d make compared to the 4. It was one thing to consider a 3a for my wife but I kind of like the finer things when it comes to electronics. Lol!

    So do you know a time line for possibly a 4a?

    With the Pixel 3’s you have to use proprietary/approved wireless chargers and with the Pixel 4’s you don’t... is it possible a future software update could fix this on the 3’s? I’m kind of interested in Wireless charging but don’t like the fact you’re forced into using more expensive chargers and your choices are limited.

    The 3a was released this past May, so if Google's going to do it, I'd guess it'd be around that time next year as well.

    I switched from a Pixel 2 to a Pixel 3a because I broke the screen on my 2 and the glad back. I was going to pay to fix the screen, glass back and battery but just before Black Friday Amazon was selling the 3a for $250, so I bought a 3a instead of fixing my 2

    So how do you like it?

    Well I'm still trying to decide what to do after getting my wife a Pixel 3 and seeing the bigger screen compared to my 2 I kind of want to upgrade. I've been doing a lot of size comparisons via Phonearena and boy do XL's seem big compared to a 2, 3, or 4. On the other hand I find my wife's 3 to be a little narrow to my liking makes the phone seems smaller than my 2... but possibly something I would get used to after using a few days. Do you think a bigger case would negate the feeling of the 3 being too narrow?

    I have really small hands so I do worry about an XL being too big for my hands. I can hold the 2 fine in one hand but I normally use two hands for everything... I hold the phone in my left hand and use my thumb of my right hand to do everything else. Kind of wondering how an XL would affect my normal use of the phone.

    Also would I have to use a holster to carry it or will it fit in my pocket?

    I had planned to pickup a Pixel 3 XL this morning but I've got to think this through for before I make a move. Actually think I need a Pixel somewhere between a regular size and an XL.

    I do think a case would probably make it feel wide enough. I always use a case, and the one I have (from Moment -- I like their line of attachable lenses) adds some nice heft and protection.

    Yeah I think I'm leaning that way I really do want to be able to carry in my pocket. The only negative I've read about the 3 being narrow is maybe not as easy to use the keyboard but don't know if this is an exaggeration or not.

    Pixel 2 is way smaller than 3a, so take that into consideration. The pixel 2 xl is still a better buy than the 3a or 3a xl IMO.

    I actually ended up picking up a 3 XL and it’s pretty nice! I compared the 4 XL, 3 XL, and 3a XL in a Verizon store and if money was no object I preferred the profile of the 4 XL best followed by the 3a XL then the 3 XL. The 3 XL just seemed a little fatter than the other two but the 4 XL is too new to find used at a good price and the 3a XL didn’t allow for wireless charging... thus I got a 3 XL.
