    The Pixel 3 whatever you call it .
    In a time when devices are hardware ladened. GOOGLE still think software gimmicks will sell a midranged device at more than the price of a budget flagship.
    But its Mr Mobile in action so its always worth the watch
    Njoy:D or Not:p

    But $399 for an SD670, polycarbaonate, and whatever glass is used for the screen.:tearsofjoy:
    I can get a Mi9 for less than that, with top tier 2019 specs.

    It's like they have applied a "google tax" in the same way Apple does for their devices. The privileged of owning a google device...

    Not convinced of the price personally, as you have noted there are a plethora of other OEM's phones with higher specs and lower or similar prices. Going by a straight conversion rate in Australia the phone is priced close to $600 for the base model, for that money here you could buy a second hand Galaxy S10e!

    Yes Google are using this software experience nonsense to push through big prices, even Apple have realised those days are done.

    It’s not only the price tag, we still don’t know if Google has fixed the countless issues that are still present on the Pixel 3! They’re ignoring the flagship lineup with issues 6 months old and released a new phone. Pixels already have slow down issues, with this processor it might be even worse..

    Base model is 649$ in Australia. Bonkers expensive compared to the competition... but, someone will buy them and see value in it.

    Especially because of that camera... Someone, somewhere, will buy it solely for the amazing pixel camera experience on a budget. Can’t blame them if that’s exactly why they needed a new phone tbh.

    time is coming very near for the pixel to die.
    apart from the camera, they have nothing to show.

    Yet I think they'll continue. I've been told years ago by an inside source that Nexus was never meant to be profitable, but to be a display of Google software.

    There's pressure on prices of Pixel devices, because nobody thinks they are as premium as other top tiers. Hopefully in one or two generations we'll see Pixels for a decent price.

    There's also malidan being annoying as usual, but no news here.

    They made the Pixel 3 but still can't find anything specific for the 3a (haven't looked that hard). Probably the case..
