Excellent Pixel phone, best yet!

GoldenPixelDog17 has owned it for less than year before publishing this review

Pre-ordered mine at a great price, great screen, and of course fantastic cameras (especially the ultrawide) definite upgrade from my Pixel 2, avid Pixel fan. I love taking photos on my Pixel, they turn out fantastically, reviewers are getting more critical and more nitpicky, however for £599 its a steal.

Dissappointing

My biggest qualm with this phone is the fingerprint sensor. It works maybe 75% of the time, the rest it just doesnt recognise or claims it is dirty - I never had any problem like this with the Pixel 2 - I'm guessing its the paint/bio-resin they put on it that is the problem. Also the bluetooth connection is not great - though that could be a problem with the Pixel Buds. Battery life is what I expected and I'm happy with that. I've had some issues where the camera app would crash - they eventually fixed it with a software update - always nice to be the guinea pig on a flagship device. Phone feels like a cheap burner quality-wise. They really should not have lied on their website and claimed its aluminum. I guess you could say build quality is on (sub)par with all of the pixels. I really wish they would make Play edition phones again so I could get stock Android from a manufacturer that knows what they are doing.

I has this phone since October ; but this phone brilliant . I like the camera ; the display is gorgeous ; the battery is also very good. I got an update that fixes the speakers ; now the speakers are also good.
