    I've been planning to go to my local cellular provider store or to Best Buy/Target to play with the Pixel 3. From video reviews I've watched and otherwise, almost all say the phone feels very good in the hands and the user experience is pretty well handled. Which is a main issue I have with my iPhone 6S. It's 3 generations old and it FEELS like it too. I've wanted to move to Android for a while and I think stock Android is the best place to start, and Pixel phones, obviously, are much snappier in terms of performance.

    What you said about the Samsung phones is actually my biggest worry about considering those phones. From what I've been shown and told by friends with these devices, they slow down pretty significantly after about a year and usually are way out of date with Android security updates.

    I have played with an S9 and S9+ and both of those phones feel really good in the hands and the screens look amazing. My biggest concern with the Galaxy phones are the bloat, specifically the loads of software and even hardware features they add. For instance, the Bixby button on the side of the phone seems redundant to me. Its hard-coded to Bixby only, and Bixby itself isn't the most reliable smart assistant, from what I heard.

    Software-wise, it seems overloaded with little features, which is by no means a bad thing, I just personally don't see myself using a lot of them. The customization piques my interest, solely because that's one of my biggest complaints with iOS.

    Admittedly, the camera isn't my biggest selling point for a phone. Though with one like Pixel 3's, I may find myself indulging my inner photographer a lot more.

    Thanks for the insight! Really useful information you provided. I'll definitely keep a close eye on the S9 phones and do my research.

    Hello, ~tech!

    I've been really interested in the Google Pixel 3 (non XL) for quite some time, mainly due to my boredom of the Apple ecosystem. I've been primarily an iPhone user since 2014 (currently stuck on the iPhone 6S) and I've recently been eager to make a switch to Android. The Pixel 3 seems to be exactly what I'm looking for. Stock Android experience, a beautiful camera, modern device, and I'm already pretty integrated into Google's ecosystem of services, and I feel the transition will be very smooth.

    So, for any Google Pixel 3 users, non XL or otherwise, what do you love and/or hate about your device? Were you in my shoes as well?

    This is the most Bethesda bug to ever exist. They'll never be able to top this one.
