    Well I don't think it's silly. I'm not touching the outside body of my car while I'm driving. I am however always touching the body of my phone every time I'm using it. So to me, I do want something that feels great in the hand. Didn't think the Pixel 2 XL felt great. Felt like a cheapish plastic phone to me and at $850, it certainly was not in line with other high-end smartphones around the same price range.

    Metal is a fine material, but covering it in the coating was not a good idea imo. Not sure why it was added, maybe to hide the antenna lines, but I don't think it was worth it. Maybe Google don't think it was worth it either, hence why they're ditching it in the Pixel 3.
    I'm done with this conversation. Point was your hand is still touching metal.

    "Paint" and "plastic" are not the same word.
    That was my point haha, thank you.

    Look quite nice. The glass will be stunning and looks like the bottom part of the back of the phone will be a frosted/matte glass. I like the look of it quite a bit. Much more sophisticated/well thought than the previous Pixel.

    I really like it! And I too think that it is very sophisticated-looking!

    Roundup of Pixel 3 leaks so far from Android Central:



    Good video. Agree with Alex Dobie's comment about hoping the display quality is a big step up from last year's lacklustre Pixel 2 XL display. And yeah, 4gb ram seems a bit odd. Hope that it's just an early prototype and the final moves towards 6gb. A lot of other flagship phones seem to have 6gb ram and 128gb, would be great if Google moves that way too.

    Well it is my opinion that changing the back to all glass is better than before with the P2/2XL. I look nicer aesthetically, it allows for wireless charging which metal did not, and feels better in the hand over metal with plastic coating over it.

    So knowing what the P2XL looks and feels like to knowing it's going to a glass build, imo it's a great change. Very glad Google aren't going with the P2/2XL metal/plastic coating this year. Plus wireless charging is a bonus. Maybe Google could bundle wireless chargers for those who preorder or something.
    Why don't you just get an iPhone? Everything you post tries to turn everything into an iPhone. Are you an iPhone user? You sure sound like it.

    WE DON'T WANT iPHONE CLONES. Glass backs are stupid. They break, they scuff, they require cases, they are dumb, stupid and idiotic. Here we go again with this "premium feel" trash that popped up last year.
