Quote from: bluaki on October 09, 2018, 10:27:43 AMFor exactly the same price as the Note 9, the Pixel 3 XL has less RAM, much bigger bezels, a huge notch, no SD slot, no pen, no headphone jack, a 25% smaller battery, and the same storage capacity (128GB) and SoC (in US)
Quote from: Magyarorszag on October 17, 2018, 07:11:07 AMi mean the pixel 3 is inferior in just about every way to both the iphone and to several other android flagships, especially the galaxy and note devices

Quote from: Magyarorszag on October 19, 2018, 01:57:15 PMOut of curiosity, what are those small details? i couldn't blame anyone for taking issue with locked bootloaders though

Quote from: bluaki on October 20, 2018, 06:31:09 PMBesides that, there are a ton of useless preinstalled apps you can't disable.
Quote from: bluaki on October 20, 2018, 06:31:09 PMI've seen junk like Settings and SystemUI crash more than a little bit.

Quote from: bluaki on October 23, 2018, 09:18:20 PMYet another disaster update: Even though the Qi standard supports up 15W, Pixel 3 introduces a new proprietary Google Wireless Charging system for 10W, which uses handshakes to make sure the manufacturer paid licensing fees to Google. Google's own charging stand costs $79 and there's also a compatible Belkin basic charging mat for $60. Standard Qi chargers are throttled to 5W.Meanwhile, there are plenty of $15-$20 Qi chargers that support both 10W to Samsung devices and 7.5W to Apple ones. Google actually out-Apple'd Apple.
