For whatever it's worth: Google has a sale running this week for $200 off Pixel 3 and 3XL.

That was enough to get me to finally pull the trigger and arrange a trade-in of my Pixel 1 and its failing battery. Without discount, the Pixel 3 is too expensive to justify given my needs.

But not having to deal with locked phones and OEM/Carrier crapware is worth a bit of a premium to me.

Has anyone heard any rumors about Pixel 4 / iPhone 11 anything? Verizon has been offering a deal for $300 off Pixel 3 (non-XL) for upgrades, $400 off for new lines. My Moto Z Force has been giving me issues, so I'm pretty tempted to upgrade, but if 6 months from now we get 5G mobile or something (anything) substantial, I think I'd be kicking myself

There are rumblings about the Pixel 4 although the 3a and 3a-XL are supposed to release relatively soon (Spring). After those hit the market, Pixel 4 rumours/leaks will start to show up more I'd guess.

My 3XL is dope, btw. Definitely would recommend a Pixel to someone.

Neither the iPhone 11 nor Pixel 4 is coming out for another 6 months, so if you need a phone, get a phone. If you don't, wait. When they come out, they won't be discounted, so I wouldn't bother making a decision based on that.

google has a craptastic practice of discounting new phones shortly after launch (pixel lines). the early buyers pay full freight and in what seems like no time at all, they start discounting a few hundo off the orig price.

Yep, I got my Pixel 3XL on a BOGO50%off in early December. So weird.

How is that big notch at the top of the screen treating you?

It doesn't bother me. Notifications and status stuff goes there. Any app that is full screen just doesn't use that area. I've not had it be an issue yet.

I would have a hard time imagining the notch actually bothering anyone unless they are just being contrarian. What is the other option? Smaller screen real estate? Pop up selfie camera? No selfie camera at all?
