Has anyone moved from iPhone, Samsung galaxy to pixel? How is your experience with front and rear facing camera? Any other things like battery life or call/connection better/worse ? Pixel3 is latest phone by google selling around 800 usd which is 200 less than iPhone xs. Do we have any google store in Portland so that I can buy it tax free

      I am looking for unlocked. I don’t want to get in contract and give ssn. Best Buy probably has only that option. If I go to another Apple store I get phone on cash

      Buy from Google store
      And trade in with awesome price. Use my code to get 50$ extra.
      It's a great time for a new Pixel.

      I love my Pixel 3a and I think you will too, so here's an exclusive $50 to spend in the Google Store when you buy a Pixel 3a.

    Buy it for the camera. The OS is terrible though. Constant app crashes and unresponsive screen (happens at least a few times daily to make it super frustrating).

    I moved from Galaxy S8 to Pixel 3. One thing I can say for sure, the camera is the best point and shoot you can have.
    Only problem I faced with it is it's aggressive ram management closing apps in the background to keep using it's small 4g ram, which can be annoying. Other than that it's a cool phone, and honestly camera makes it worth it, at least for me.

      Yes, all hacks for all phones.

      PS. your phone is a computer.

      I would venture to say that iPhone is better because Apple likes to give the FBI the finger. Google snuggles up to old man Sam.

      Your definition of better is precarious at best Intel 😁

      Well, I’m not 100% sure if a private hacker has ever gained any access to my phone.

      However, I’m 100% certain that the NSA or other alphabet soup has or will have a call/text/data stored on a tape in some dingy warehouse.

      It might boil down to your definition of “security” - who are you protecting from? For me, it’s which company now or in the future will work closely with the government when it comes to data?

    I moved from multiple iPhones to Samsung to Pixel3. Pros of iPhone were, amazing battery even after a couple of years, fewer bugs and fewer crashes from the apps they allow. And I hated iTunes so much. Pixel3 has the best camera I've ever seen. Great battery life so far and software quality better than Samsung. Don't like the display quality as much esp in bright light. Samsung was trash in most aspects but display. Display was better than any other phone I've used. But battery was terrible. And the things they add to the default Android to "add value"! The horror, the horror. Buggiest software I've seen to date. I've come to love the flexibility Android offers and i think I'll stick to the pixel line after using the camera. The portrait mode makes you look like a pro photographer, take a look at some samples.

    I have a Pixel 2. I know it's not a 3, but my experiences with the 2 have been fantastic. I've owned it for two and a half years, and battery life has stayed consistent, (still lasts all day) it hasn't slowed down, and it is just a workhorse. Oh and the camera is amazing. I switched from Samsung crap (Note 5) and will never go back. I've never had an iPhone, but would highly recommend the Pixel as it is far better than other Android phones I've owned. I only expect the 3 to be better. Actually though, as long as this phone continues to work, I don't see myself buying new for a long time.
    I've dropped it in the toilet, dropped it on the sidewalk, it's gotten drenched with water. It works
    Edit: have to say that the fingerprint sensor placement is genius
