    Hey, All,

    I was just thinking. I came from a Google Pixel 2XL and it was great at first, but after a while, it felt bland and boring.

    I'm absolutely loving my Note 9, but I was curious if there woul be at part of the Pixel 3XL that would make you even think about trading?

    Also, do you think there would even be a good trade in value (promo, or otherwise) for an Unlocked 512GB Note 9 at Best Buy or Verizon?

    Thanks!

    Among a host of other reasons... notch = no way, not even if they paid me !!

    The camera would be the only thing. But I still wouldn't do it at this point ..

    Camera and instant updates, but not enough with that horrible design and lack of RAM. I was Pixel 3 XL camp for the longest time until I saw how stupid it looked, prior to that I didn't even consider the note 9.

    It would be a huge downgrade coming from a N9. It will have a good camera but that's it. Pixels are just mid range phones priced at a flagship price.

    I doubt the camera will be any better. Maybe the software but you can download Google camera software. The pixel line is hideous. No way. And stock is boring.

    The Google camera software on my note 9 is still pretty buggy... What version are you using?

    I traded my 2XL for this note 9 and i have to say there a little part of me that misses the Pixel. Google made a great phone and I had some of the best photos I've ever taken. but this phone beats it hands down for entertainment. the expandable memory, the better ram, the S pen. and for me, even though it's a simple thing, the facial unlock. I always wished my pixel had that. my phone spends a lot of time on a desk and who has time to, you know, lift it?

    No headphone jack, Micro SD card and a dumb looking Notch?

    Nah.

    That notch... that's a no from me dog. If it didn't have a notch I'd be all for it.

    I seem to be alone in this that Stock and Camera doesn't give you the right to charge "iPhone" like prices.

    I have always been curious about the pixel, and while I love timely updates. There is nothing that is appealing to me about the pixel phones. I especially hate the way they look. They are always a year or 2 behind on phone design. I actually like the notch on the x all it did was take uses some of the wasted space for the notification bar. When you watch something in full screen you don't even see the notch.

    I have no problems with the Notch, I don't mind. Besides they can be hidden, so what's the problem.

    Yeah, they can be hidden and then a 2018 phone has the exact same bezels as my S7 Edge with less features.

    For me I find the Note 9 more than ticks my own personal wants and needs boxes.

    I'm not drawn to the Pixel phones for any reason.

    I fell for the Pixel 2 XL hype thanks to a couple of my favorite YT tech gurus. The camera has always been the most important aspect of a smartphone, for me. Quickly found out I wasn't a "stock Android" type of gal, so much so that I let the camera consideration slip to 2nd place. Handed it off to my husband since he's not the phone freak I am...he didn't like it either. OK, he'll get used to it. He didn't. Sent it back to Verizon this week, gave my husband the S9+ (which is what he wanted all along) and I got the Note. So NO, I'm not in the least bit tempted to consider the Pixel 3 XL no matter what MKBHD tells me! We like our "Samsung Experience"

    If you hide the notch, that means you are being shortchanged and not getting the real screen size they are advertising

    The Notch is hideous. Other than the camera there's really not much that intrigues me. The camera is not even that much better. If a photo doesn't produce the colors, highlights, contrast, etc. that I want then I'll just adjust it with Snapseed or the Lightroom app. My Pixel 2XL hardly gets used and Samsung's updates are just a few weeks behind Google so people need to stop using that as an excuse to prefer the Pixel over Samsung.

    Unless the notch part was just rumors, without the notch, I am still interested to see what Pixel 3 XL can offer. Their photo processing is just awesome. Single lens camera beat most of the dual camera smartphone in the market.

    Instant updates are overrated. They are always full of bugs
