    I switched my order to Amazon. Easier to deal with and I like the $100 Amazon gift card compared to the $100 google store gift card. Also the Amazon gift cards you will get immediately within few days unlike the google store one which takes few weeks to reflect on the account. And last year they screwed me of the pre order credit since i had to exchange for the defective phone and never credited the preorder gift to my google account.

    Only disadvantage is they don’t have the 128GB models for the oh so orange on Amazon. I was conflicted between white and orange anyway so went with 128 GB 4 XL clearly white. Ships on 21st and delivers on 23rd.

    Those who ordered via google store might want to take a look at Amazon and they deliver on 23rd. Better customer support compared to Google and being prime member i prefer Amazon.

    $100 Gift card arriving Thursday and 4 XL on 23rd.

    $100 Amazon gift card definitely beats Google's $100 store credit.

    Google's promotions are straight up disappointing. It doesn't feel like they're trying hard enough to tempt people.

    And forgot about the 5% cash back on my Amazon card. So it’s like additional 5% off compared to google store.

    I ordered the 64 Orange. Should have it by 10/21. I pre-ordered as soon as it went live. I'm glad I did. I'm seeing wait times now of 3-4 weeks. Would be nice if they surprised us with a early delivery.

    Me too - but my arrival date is 10/23 or 24 - you beat me by a couple of days -

    Haha... True.. By the way, I bought this outright so I still have my pixel 3xl, OP7P and OP6t. Lol. I need to offload.
    Yeah... I'm tired if collecting. Held on to some devices past their useful resale life. I never have to worry about a back up.... Lol. Glad I traded the 3XL for 600 though.

    Mike, Lol!

    Verizon's monthly coverage is actually pretty rock solid and worth the money and piece of mind IMO.
    Yeah.... frequent phone flyers are better off with monthly insurance than a one time purchase but it adds up.

    I'm gonna thread jack my own thread for anyone on the fence... After having the Pixel 3XL for 6 months (after previously having the Pixel 2XL), I got bored with it and bought the Note 9 as well as the One Plus 7 Pro (12GB/256GB).

    I only had the Note for a few weeks as the bloat was horrible, and the forced beauty mode made taking pictures of pets impossible.

    The OP7P was the absolute best phone over all that inhsve ever, ever owned. Buuuuttt... The camera was just so important to me, and no gcam port in the work compares to an OEM pixel device.

    I went back to the Pixel 3XL and have not looked back again...
    When you say beauty mode do you mean the scene optimizer?

    If Google had made the black model matte, boy, it'd be a different playing field between the colors. I would have seriously considered it. I hope someone does a 3D mock up or something.

    In regards to the Orange model, I can't wait to see what "Limited Edition" actually means. Will it just disappear from the order page or will it just be one of those constantly "sold out" type things? I also hope we get to the bottom of exactly why Google decided this color -- arguably the best and most recognizable Pixel color, which could have helped branding -- should be in limited availability or supply. Is it a manufacturing issue -- is it just not possible to keep churning out this color? Or is it to create hype and demand? Hope we find out because it's rough grappling around Google's decision making here.

    Probably just hype and demand during launch. Thru out the year pixels are not a high volume selling devices in comparison to Apple and Samsung phones and they would probably keep the number of SKUs limited.

    Had absolutely no intention of buying one now (but yes, later). I didn't even watch or read much about it today. Figured I'd catch up on it later.

    Then the Amazon deal came out this evening. $100 gift card plus I assume I will get 5% back on my Prime Visa. I think that's a pretty good deal based on my Pixel 3 experience.

    I did a crash course in Pixel 4 to make sure I understood everything. I decided to bump up to the XL. 64GB. Orange. Hopefully, it's not too big.

    Looking back, it's all a Google-blur.

    If you have not already, join up to Google one before order. ( I'm a member already to get the 2TB of storage )

    Get a 10% credit applied on all purchases. So about £100 for this.
    Ordered the white Pixel 4 XL 128gb for launch.

    Still really disappointed that the 'oh so orange' isn't available with 128gb in the UK, at least we get a free Chromebook.

    Might very well cancel it before it's shipped though. I'll see what some of the reviews say but it hasn't really wowed me as much as I was hoping it would.

    Pixel 4 64GB with preferred care. I've always bought the XL version but I grew tired of it. Finally going to the smaller version though I'm nervous about the battery life.

    My answer is all of the above or none of the above. I have given up on trying to guess what goes through minds of OEM strategists. It's fun speculating but it's also frustrating when you see a feature or color restricted by region or carrier.

    I actually end up doing the same. I wanted to switch to a clearly white when I found out the black is glossy and the Google store was kinda sold out for next week delivery.

    I ended up getting the XL clearly white 128gb as well on Amazon.
