    Some smartphones have rounded displays so why not square the top corners of the phone and put sensors there?

    If you had to pick between the Pixel 3XL and the Note 9 to be your daily driver which would you pick and why?

    Coming from a lg G4 to pixel 3 xl the notch isn't as big a deal as people have made it seem (no shit I know cue vocal internet comments). Could we do without it yes but is it the end of phone design not really. It is actually like a little face staring back at you as you browse if you consciously look at it but if not doing that it kinda blends in and is easily meh.

    The MiMix 3 has the best solution to the notch problem, if they their lower bezel was a little closer, then it would be a complete package of a phone.

    Apart from the camera and day 1 software updates, what is so intriguing about the pixel ? You can get a one plus 6 and install the google camera apk and OnePlus gave the update within a month of android P release. This phone has more bugs than any phone in history. It is clear now google sucks at hardware and they should ditch it. They justify their price for devices with software features. I get it that its a software game and not a hardware game anymore but the fact that the flagship phone is this ugly, makes me hate it that much more

    You know, I never minded a small top & lower chin (equal in size) as long as it had speakers for nice stereo sound when watching videos. I feel as though this whole *no* chin whatsoever went a bit overboard considering that the "Notch" and loss of dual speakers front side is a disappointment. I had an HTC M7-M8 a while back and loved that stereo speaker boomsound.

    Google might coming up with very cool thing, so just to stay in market they might launched the pixel 3. It just my thoughts..

    Just got the phone today. It really is something you have to use to appreciate. Loving what Google is doing... So many little things that make it a pretty awesome user experience. Obbbbviously I could live without Notch City but hey πŸ€·πŸ»β€β™‚οΈ I can get use to it until the full bezeless era. Same as with the new iPhones... Greatness appreciated once you start using them.

    How the apps ignore the notch is pretty good. Makes it a lot less intrusive. But, as a huge video user, I'd be looking for a notchless phone when I am ready to move on from the Pixel 2 XL. Maybe a Galaxy phone.

    Scott Ravitz 24 days ago

    I have been using the phone for a few days now and I have to agree, the notch just doesn't bother me. I bought into the idea of a notch when I bought the essential phone on discount and I got used to that notch very quickly. I would prefer that apps hid the notch whenever possible because it can be distracting in Gmail, for example.

    Last week I dropped my Pixel 2 XL and cracked the screen. I thought it was a great excuse to upgrade for the Pixel 3 XL but after all these videos I decided to replace my screen. It was super easy and it feels like a brand new phone, I'll hang on to it for a little longer (waiting for the Pixel 4πŸ˜‰)

    If there was a samsung phone with that same notch and the same specs as the pixels. Marques would have surely critisize samsung for that and wouldn't even care to make a video about" SECOND IMPRESSION". Its because he has a soft corner for pixels phone he tries to convince himself that he's got habituated with the notch and he doesn't notice the big notch etc......

    @MKBHD is it just me or is the PIXEL 3 XL notch a brilliant use of space. It's the same square area as an iPhone Xs but made narrower & deeper for a reason so that you can actually get more notifications to either side vs. iPhone terribly having to swipe down to see battery %?

    I’m very disappointed with these flagship phones, the notch I think is a gimmick and doesn’t make the screen look any better,which is why i like the budget phones better, yes I agree having 3 or 4 gigabytes of ram is good but only means your paying when a mid range device can do it.Which is why I like Samsung flagship phones over phones that have the notch.
