Anyone else extremely disappointed by Google today. I'll probably still get a pixel 3 but I'm not happy about it

It was pretty lackluster with everything being leaked ahead. The Google home with a screen is interesting for the price, but I won't be getting.

Yeah. I definitely don't feel compelled to upgrade from my pixel 2.

Haven't ordered anything yet. Sarah wants/needs a new phone also and after adding everything to my cart it was a hard pick to swallow the $1600+ price tag. Google doesn't typically do much for sales but I might wait it out for a project fi deal that will be beneficial rather than the new line promo

camera worked, just not 100% by showing dark spots because of dirt on the lens and it didn't like bright light anymore

Haha. If a camera doesn't work 100% of the time then I would say it was broken.

Pixel 4 announcement gave me an itch for a new phone but my pixel 2 xl is working just fine. Jocelyn's pixel 2 was having horrible battery so I got her the 3a this week. $350 on sale via Amazon. Larger screen than her 2, bigger battery, slightly better camera?, And a headphone jack. She loves it. This may be the "budget" pixel, but it's an improvement in every way to her.

Phone prices are outrageous across the market, so getting this for $350 seems like a steal. If they come out with a 4a in May I would consider that.
