Re: Meet the new Google Pixel 3 & Pixel 3 XL!

Oh yes! grin I had been waiting since my contract completed in June for a new phone but didn't see anything I liked. I have always been a Google phone user from the Nexus range - tablet 7" and 10" and Nexus 5 and 6P. I watched the announcement on Tuesday on YouTube and this confirmed my choice. Then as soon as @Cleoriff said it was available I went and got it! I have gone for the black 128Gb 3XL model. Really can't wait until until 1st November, case is also on order so happy, happy, happy! smiley

Hi @EmilieT

 

Interesting the Google phone ~

 

Google always worries me though ~ puts me in mind of George Orwell 1984 ?

 

Worse a robot spying in your home called "Alexa"  !

@TallTrees I agree, it's a very interesting device! slight smile

 

I imagine you don't have any Smart Home products then? No Alexa or other similar one?

£968 for the 128gb XL?
It's a crazy year for phone pricing if honest, no wonder a 3 year consumer contract is the default option now...

The Pixel 3 is expensive enough at £739, and that’s buying it direct from Google (it works out at £777 from O2). But if people can justify spending that much on a phone, I’m surprised that more of them don’t just buy it on a 0% credit card (i.e. rather than taking out a contract).

 

I’m reluctant to spend more than £500, so that probably rules out most of the latest handsets.  neutral

@TallTrees

 

I guess it’s a sign of the times, that so many people are prepared to spend more money on a mobile phone, than they would on a PC, laptop, or tablet.
