    If so, please share why?

    I am so torn. On one hand, I love so many things about this phone, and on the other hand, the only thing that disappointed me is that Samsung camera still way over expose things and trying to take a none blurry picture of my none stop moving 20 months kid is so frustrating.

    If I end up returning it. It will be because of that. Everything else is better on the Note 10+, including videos and that ultra wide camera is great too.

    Share if you are a pixel 3 XL previous owner. Thanks!

    Coming from 2xl and pixel 3 my complaints are the camera and FPS. Otherwise this device is a beast with a beautiful screen and great battery life. Don't think Google is going up the game enough for me to switch again.

    Yes, was able to Port it from S10 with some tweeks but it is really not the same. I compared it to my wife's pixel 2 xl. The port coming out with much darker images.

    I don't know what a S10 Port is but it sounds like you might not be using the actual camera app? I suggest giving that a go. My primary photo subjects are my 4 kids, 2 dogs and 2 cats so they're almost always moving and I'm managing to get great pictures.

    I'd also recommend turning on motion photos; a few times I've been able to grab a picture from viewing the milliseconds before the 'actual' photo.

    Damn. My biggest fear for sure. I also have 2 kids and pets and absolutely love the war the Pixel take the “right shot” every single time.

    If I wanted great pics I wouldn't even stray from a Pixel. Samsung's camera problems have been around for a while.

    I wish it would just let you set a maximum number of photos for a burst. More straightforward IMO.

    You don't know how awesome pixel 3 camera is until you leave it. Effortless point and shoot. Yes, Samsung's camera is more versatile and take better video, but for point and shoot, pixel 3 simply just can't be beat.

    Tough tough call cause I like everything else. Urrgghhhhh

    Yeah I keep trying to remind myself that the Pixel 3 battery was horrendous, video camera was subpar, audio isn’t as good as Galaxy phones, and the screen sucks in direct sunlight.

    I might keep my Pixel 3 since Android 10 is coming next week to it. I'll probably pick up locally some used Pixel 3 for $350-$400 range and send that for $600 trade in for the Note 10. I'll use my current Pixel 3 for Pixel 4 trade in

    What kind of trade in deals do you think Google will have for the Pixel 3?

    Probably not like what Samsung has. I'm thinking best case scenario they may offer 500 for the Pixel 3 but knowing Google they may offer only 450 or have higher trade in value for XL and less for the regular 3.

    Ok this was quick, found a mint unlocked from Google store 64 GB Pixel 3 XL for $380 near me. Comes with original box and accessories along with Whitestone dome screen protector applied. Picking that up until Pixel 4 and sending my regular Pixel 3 to Samsung

    Now I need to decide if I have to keep Note 10 or the Note 10+. Basically I need to return one and send the trade in device for the other.

    I have issues

    I wouldn’t even hesitate to keep the Plus. Better device and better trade in!

    I have both and the Pixel photos are just marginally better, IMO, that everything else on Samsung devices is what keeps them as my primary device. Google can't even get gestures right on their own OS. Lol. I still manage to get blurry shots of my kids also with my Pixel and any photo that I plan to share from either device I always edit in post anyway that it doesn't matter which device it comes from. All I know is I can get great shots from both devices and they each have their limitations and I learn how to work around them. Honestly the camera is the least deciding factor between flagship devices it's the complete package that matters and Samsung just has that for the money.

    Yeah it's definitely the better device but man I have moved on from big devices. Had the Pixel 3 XL and Xs Max earlier and moved to smaller Pixel 3 and Xs. Even with S10 series I couldn't deal with S10+ and had to settle for S10.
    I love the Note 10+ everytime I pick up but deep down I know I'll regret the size few weeks in.

    Trade in wise I get the same $600 for both so that's not a consideration. And when I trade this in for the S11 I'm pretty sure Samsung will give the same price for both the 10 and 10+. I'm only looking for the next 6 months
