Could the Pixel 3XL even offer anything that would make you wanna trade your Note 9 for it?

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!

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.

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?

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 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" :)
