    Now a surprise.......the notch can be hidden through developer options. Leave it to Google to have an ace up their sleve!

    Not the first phone to make it hideable... but then you're still left with bezels comparable to a phone from 3 years ago.

    Yeah but then the XL will pretty much be the size of the smaller phone in a side-by-side comparison.

    That's crazy. Why would they do that? I wonder if it's a typo or something.

    There is no phone on the market to make me give up the note 9 . If there is it better equal and exceed what the note brings to the table it's in it own league, but I'll update my pixel 2xl to the 3xl

    Google, we said we want a top notch front camera, not a front camera in a gigantic top notch!

    Yeah. It would be a tough choice between my lovely S Pen and the offer of speedy updates of no proven benefit. I stand to be corrected. I chose the Note 9 every time-even in my worst nightmare.
    Coming from the Pixel 2, I don't miss the updates at all
    Using a Pixel 2 at the moment. Its been almost 8 months and while I thought I wanted updates, I'm kind of getting there to where I don't want them as frequently. Every month it seems there is some bug introduced, something gets broken, people losing connection to bluetooth devices and cannot get them to pair again. I'm leaning towards going back to Samsung as it seems they have more stable builds due to the longer times between updates. This is something I often took for granted in years past when I had samsung devices and wanted updates. If it isn't broke, don't fix it.

    The price killed any desire to upgrade to the Pixel 3. I love, absolutely love my camera though. However, I'm kind of tired of my small screen and huge top and bottom bezels. That all said, I can get a Note 9 cheaper than I can the small P3 right now.

    The 6GB/128GB on T-MOBILE's site is $870 right now. I'm very tempted.

    I've always hated typing on this thing. I still struggle with it. I think the bezels throw me off.

    NOtch way that I’m switching. If the pixel were cheaper it might be tempting but google makes sure to not tempt me by releasing overpriced, ugly hardware with limited carrier options. Thanks google.

    I've used notes in past and still have the note 2 and 4 .
    But I bought the note 9 because I wanted the Bluetooth s pen and bigger battery and the boxed shape ...I've been using it for my business also .

    I'm not switching but I am considering picking up the regular P3 not the ugly XL. I'm not going to pre-order tho and will wait it out for a bit.

    I get my devices through my work and I just like new tech. Wouldn't mind a smaller device to switch to one in a while.

    For me its all going to be really good whether I go pixel 2xl or 3xl or note9 as I will be upgrading from a Note4!!!, swapping out batteries twice a day. I have a question: I figure one of the reasons I've been able to keep the old phone is that it is in pretty good shape, damage wise. I've kept it that way because it's always been in a folio/wallet style case. Does wireless charging only work well when the Pixel 3 is not in a case? if so I won't even be able to use wireless charging. True or false?

    False. It's just like any other model of smartphone that has wireless charging whether a folio or not... it depends if the case is too thick to make a good connection on the pad. Or cases that hold credit cards sometimes if you have more than a card or two in it, then it will block charging. or cases with metal kickstands.

    Alright, so I have a thread up on reddit that I started:
    https://www.reddit.com/r/GooglePixel...3_xl_thoughts/

    I won't repeat it all here.
    BUT I am tempted (infact have already preordered the p3 xl)

    Basically, Samsung's update leadtime really upsets me. The phone has 6gb but honestly I think with samsung's UI and lack of optimizing, that it NEEDS those extra 2gb to stay as snappy as it is.
    The SPEN is really nice, I'll miss it. The battery is currently pretty darn good too, I don't know how the p3 xl will compare.

    But I had the OG Pixel XL, and its fluidity and stability were bar none the best I have ever had on android. I guess some people with the Pixel 2 are saying otherwise, which sort of worries me lol.

    The notch isn't so bad, you'll be able to put the status bar in it and everything below the notch being usable for apps. Its like the same usable size as going "immersive mode' on a different phone.

    I dunno, I think I'm gonna do it....

    It's hard to post a topic in the Note9 forum and expect a lot of support. In the end, the decision is to yours to make and not to have others talk you out of it. For my use, it absolutely makes no sense to go from a Note9 to a Pixel 3XL. I knew before I got my Note9 what the Pixel would bring and chose to remain with the Note line. Everyone is different. Personally, the argument over quicker updates being the reason to switch is utterly ludicrous. That's just my opinion. If it was 2014 still, I may have a different opinion.

    Well for me its an easy decision. Switching I guess is a little more complicated for me because I will buy the Pixel and play. Which one ends up being my daily driver or in some cases my favorite is yet to be determined.
