I’m beyond happy with my iPhone 8 but I like to keep up to date with what’s happening in the Android world, and what’s happening with the Pixel 3 right now is a disaster, much worse than anything that’s happened to the iPhone, which is saying something. Microsoft messed up bad with the Surface Pro 4/Surface Book 1 too, but I’d argue that what’s going on with the Pixel 3 right now is far worse. I honestly think Google did not test this phone, certainly not up to production quality standards. They just shipped it, it’s like a beta phone. Pixel 3 customers are guinea pig testers.
Android Police has a Pixel 3 issue tracker page and they’re struggling to keep it up to date, because it seems every other day there is a new issue. Overall, this makes me sad because the iPhone effectively has a monopoly in the smartphone market 🙁 If the Pixel line was up to the quality of the iPhone, that would be good for everyone, including iPhone users. The Pixel cameras have already pushed the industry forward but I’m not sure the Pixel brands reputation will recover. Google needs to put out a statement or a blog post apologizing to its customers for the laundry list of issues and promise they’re going to get their act together (and actually do it, unlike the Windows team)
<blockquote><em><a href="#367010">In reply to Bdsrev:</a></em></blockquote><p>My recommendations would align with the needs of the individual and their budget. Until this year, we never bought a phone over $100 (Lumia 635's and 640's) until the lack of WP apps became an issue after 4 years. We are still using one of the 635's and one of the 640's and the new Android phones were about $250 each. </p><p><br></p><p>The valuations of enthusiasts are pretty much irrelevant to the average user.</p>
<blockquote><em><a href="#368400">In reply to Minke:</a></em></blockquote><p>IMO most people using a phone as their only camera are far more limited by their own lack of skill than they are by the quality of the camera. </p>
<blockquote><em><a href="#367067">In reply to carl_taylor:</a></em></blockquote><p>You are right. Not even in the USA. In the US, iPhone/iOS has 38.7 marketshare. That means smartphones that are not of iOS make up 61.3%. That's clearly not a monopoly.</p><p><br></p><p>I don't know where they get this idea. Fake Newsites?</p>
<p>No quick charge in 2018 (!!), a hideous design, a bad battery life, only 4 GB of RAM on an android phone, no jack. It's a joke</p><p><br></p><p><br></p><p>________________________________________________________________________________</p><p><a href="https://downloader.vip/torrent-sites/" target="_blank">Torrent</a><span style="color: rgb(17, 17, 17);"> </span><a href="https://downloader.vip/vpn/" target="_blank">https://downloader.vip/vpn/</a><span style="color: rgb(17, 17, 17);"> </span><a href="https://tutuappx.com/" target="_blank">Tutuapp</a></p>
