    Between the $600 trade in for my 3xl and free $200 worth of accessories from Samsung, I'm not sure I can hold out until the Pixel 4! If the Note 10 camera is copper revolt to the Pixel 3, I would pick it up right now. I'm just not sure how well Samsung's newest camera deals with movement.

    I keep telling myself that the Pixel will have an amazing cameras and the new Google Assistant. Anyone in the same boat?

    You are not alone. The struggle is real. That $600 trade in is sick. I've been to Best Buy 3 times playing with the note 10+ and had came close to clicking that preorder button so many times in the last few days. I can't take this no more

    The camera and Android Q rollout that's around the corner are holding my hand back.

    By the way, it's $150 Samsung accessories credit not $200. Unless you signed up for that reserve thing before the phone reveal.

    I would say if you want a phone that has future-proof performance, big battery, modern design, S-pen and good multitasking and an extremely capable and versatile camera, as well as a big screen, choose the Note 10 or Note 10+.

    If you want a phone that will always have the latest Android software for 2-3 years, has superb image processing (especially in low light) and great selfies, 3D facial recognition and motion gestures then choose the Pixel 4 (XL).

    Note 10(+) cons compared to the Pixel 4(XL): Low light photography is great but not quite as good, software updates are often a month or so behind, no ultra-wide selfie, lack of Pixel exclusives like Original Resolution Google Photos storage and call screen etc

    Pixel 4(XL) cons compared to the Note 10(+): Less powerful (less RAM and default storage), no S Pen and inferior multitasking, smaller battery, ageing asymmetrical design (bezels), lack of extra Samsung features like Secure Folder, if rear camera is dual-lens then camera setup is less versatile.

    Note: these are based on the leaked specs for the Pixel 4..take my advice with a pinch of salt because the leaks might not be totally accurate.

    Historically the Pixel has never been in the same league as a note.

    Can't see that changing.

    I've been tempted by the Note's before. Bought a Note 8 last year because of the beautiful display. But as nice as they are, the Notes are just too damn big for me to use. My workplace is an active one and I need phones that are easy to use one handed. The Note's are just way too cumbersome. The minimal bezels make it even worse.

    I was a Note 7 user who jumped ship to the Pixel when that all went down. I still use the OG Pixel and it works great but the camera isn't cutting it anymore. I just can't decide. This stinks lol

    after being a stock only guy for years and years I started falling for Samsung. I stayed away after the s3 because I couldn't stand TouchWiz and stock Android was the be all simple and fast. It's just not like that anymore starting with Samsung experience the UI started to get better and oneui took another step in delivering a better experience. it's not perfect but has come a long way and it's more than good now.

    After years of hoping I realized that pixel phones aren't for me. Google vision is passable hardware with software making it up. The specs are always low end for a flagship. They never seem to have a phone that has a ton of RAM or a huge battery or super fast charging.

    You might want to check this out...if you’re eligible it could help to fund your next phone:

    https://www.theverge.com/2019/5/14/1...rline-fracture

    I would go for the Note 10, simply because I prefer OneUI and hardware wise the Note 10 will probably eclipse the Pixel 4 (XL). The loss of expandable storage and the jack isn’t great, but because I have an S7 Edge moving data to another Samsung phone is easy. 256GB of storage/8GB RAM, Infinity display, ultrasonic fingerprint sensor + a tonne of extra cool features...yes please!

    Plus the Pixel 4 phones will have big foreheads. I don’t mind slim symmetrical bezels but in this case the Note 10 simply has the better design. Price-wise I expect the Pixel 4 phones to be around the same as the Note 10 devices.

    No just Pixel, no interest in any other phones. Does Samsung do security updates every month?

    On the Note 9 now, and I've been considering switching over to the Pixel the last few years. For me, availability from AT&T would help, as I'm on the NEXT plan. The biggest thing to persuade me though would be doing a better job with indoor photos of moving subjects--mainly my young kids (which I've seen a couple people say previous Pixels were better at).

    A bit concerned about battery size and limited storage though (and thinking I might want the new Galaxy Active 2 watches might also point me back toward the Note).

    Yep, Note 9 is horrible with pictures while kids moving. I had it and now had pixel 3 xl since Jan. A huge improvement, a blurry picture is the exception not the norm on pixel 3 and hardly happen. It is like magic.

    I am jumping back in the note 10+ though. Will use for couple of months and see if improvements are there, if none, I will probably be back on the Pixel 4 XL and for good this time.

    It's an even better deal for someone with a Pixel 3 who get the same 600.

    Reach back out to me in couple months. If I am back on the pixel 4 xl, it's because I could not live without that exceptional camera.

    Went from Pixel to Essential then S10 and pre-ordered the note 10... But then I started to think more about quality of camera, software updates, stock android and decided to wait until the 4 comes out.
    I love the s10 but there are far too many quirks in the software related to Bluetooth, Samsung apps on top of Google apps, Google assistant not as effective on it, etc.
    Don't get me wrong, I have been very pleasently surprised by the S10 but I still miss the full Google experience that only a Pixel (or essential) gives....

    Trading my pixel 3 xl for Note 10+. Will use it for few months to see if Samsung will win me over for good. If not, I'll be back on Pixel 4 xl. If anything brings me back to pixel, it will be the camera and nothing else.

    My wife is 5'1" tall.

    Bought her a Note 9 last year.
    She hold it in her hand.
    Got used to the weight.
    Loves the Stylus.
    Loves the 4000 Ah battery.

    Puts it in her pocket.
    Has incorporated it in everything she does at Home, Work and with me being a Cancer patient.
    Used the calendar.
    Got reminders and alarms set.

    Used the heck out of the camera.


    No way could you take it away from her.

    She is happy with everything it does.
    She took it to Verizon and had them to completely disable Bixby.
    She hates Bixby.

    She pick's up my Pixel 3 XL when it rings
    But has no desire to sway phones.
    Never complains about how big it is or how heavy it is.
    Cause she can see the Big screen very good.
    And the battery is killer great.
