Wait, did you say you need DisplayPort (DP), or did you just mean a DVI port?,
There is a difference between the two, so some clarity would be appreciated. The cheapest DP video card is a GT 1030.
One of the many complaints I've had with the Pie update; no ability to adjust ringtone volume without sounding off the actual ringtone of my phone. Every time I go to adjust it, someone around me asks "who's calling" or it at least draws attention to me when I'd like to just discretely adjust my ringtone volume.Supposed to be some sort of new ringtone/notification browser packaged in it too, just not unlocked yet.
I don't have any real value to add to your post but did want to say things pointlessly.... I don't (didn't?) know if there was a way to adjust ring volume without it making sound apart from when the volume button default was ring volume.... If that was what you meant, I'm totally torn on that. Initially I thought it was the stupidest thing ever, then the more I realized what a pita it was too adjust media volume all the time and that I never adjusted ring volume except 'normal' to silent the more I liked it. Now I periodically reminisce about using that to adjust it even though I don't adjust it hardly ever. I think the simple solution is just make a friggin toggle so they can control whichever you want.snip.
Literally almost no reason to buy a Pixel device for the first month or two after release with these kind of deals coming so quickly thereafter.
FTFY. Pretty much what I've always said.Literally almost no reason to buy any phone for the first month or two after release with these kind of deals coming so quickly thereafter.
Only reason I'd root now would be to use those Substratum dark themes.The monthly security updates have stopped my rooting and ROM'ing. Just too much of a pain and long process to do each every month. And the risk of soft bricking making the process a crazy time sink getting it back again.
Wish there was a one button solution to use while still keeping root.
I'd speculate $699 tops for the Lite XL, $549-599 for the regular Lite. More expensive than a OnePlus 6T but great if you want the official Google experience and a great camera without paying typical flagship money.Google Pixel 3 Lite and Pixel 3 Lite XL appear in new renders
These two phones look fantastic. Let's just hope Google doesn't disappoint with the pricing.
And then probably $549-599 for the Lite XL and $449 for the regular Lite after a month or two due to discounts.I'd speculate $699 tops for the Lite XL, $549-599 for the regular Lite.

Basically, and any Verizon specific incentives such as receiving $xxx bill credits with the purchase/financing of the Google Pixel 3.While limiting to Verizon is dumb, isn't the only drawback being that you can't lease the phone from tmo or sprint or att? Or make payments on it however they are doing that now?
I mean you can just as easily buy it from google to use on whatever you want and not have to deal with the locked bootloader too if that is a thing for you. I just don't get the problem that Verizon only creates that is insurmountable.
***To be clear, I think it is retarded being offered specifically to Verizon and has to be solely monetarily reasoned on Googles part, but I'd rather them make it either GS exclusive or otherwise just non-carrier specific at all (like buy it in Best Buy if necessary, but not be tied to a carrier in any way).***
I mean I know we all make 6 digits and bang 11's around here, but if one of us weren't paying in cash and/or gold bullion, I know I'd rather buy the phone on a cash back card or finance it at 0% anyway.
What makes you think that? Its two high speed cores are the same as the SD845, which single thread performance is usually more impactful on most real-world UI speed and applications. But I'd be surprised if there was really any perceivable difference in UI performance between this Pixel Lite and either the P2 or P3 (since there's not much difference between the P2 and P3 in the first place - F2FS vs eMMC probably makes more of a difference than anything else at this point), considering my son's old Moto Z Play with an SD 625 doesn't seem that much slower than my Pixel 2 XL with half the hardware (but again, that phone runs F2FS while my P2 is ext4).The issue is the Snapdragon 670 going in these.
It's going to be slower than the Pixel 2, making the day-to-day performance only a slight upgrade from an OG Pixel.
Google's quality control of their phones is still sub-par. The number of defective Pixel 3's I constantly see posted on Reddit and other tech forums is disappointing. If you're spending this kind of money you shouldn't have to worry about potentially getting a defective device. Luckily it sounds like their RMA process is fairly simple and straight forward.Had my Pixel 3 for a bit now. I like one handed, pocketable phones. So, for flagships readily available in the states, my options pretty much seemed to be Pixel 3, iPhone XS, and S9. Just about everything else is too big. I tend to prefer Android and don't upgrade phones super often, so the software support on the Pixel 3 seemed like my best bet.
I purchased it during the $150 off on Black Friday and, frankly, I wouldn't recommend anybody buy it without getting a similar deal. It's a nice phone, but it's not a $900 (128GB) phone. At $750 it felt more fair, but honestly, I think it fits better priced a bit lower.
I will warn anybody looking to get one right now that Google is having some MAJOR logistical issues getting these phones out. It's hard to say if it's related to specific distrubution warehouses or not, but there are a lot of horror stories going on that somehow hasn't really been reported much. I had some first hand experience with this.
My phone originally had an arrival date of 11/27 on the tracking (and Google's order sheet estimated between 11/26 and 11/28). The arrival date came and went and there was zero updates in my tracking. Eventually the status changed to "pending". I filed an email ticket and received a response about a day later saying it was being forwarded to "a concerned shipping specialist". I never received a response, but eventually my packaged started moving 11/30 with a new date of 12/3. It was at my local distribution center at 3am on 12/3, but it never went out on the truck and the shipment got sent to "Pending" again. The package required a direct signature, so I figured I'd take 12/4 off on work to receive it. After all, there was no reason it wouldn't go out on that truck, right? Well, the tracking never updated the next day, calling FedEx didn't help, Google didn't respond at all and nobody seemed to know where it was. I gave up and left for work halfway through the day because clearly it wasn't coming. Much to my surprise, I received a notice at 4pm it had been delivered and apparently signed for, by me, somehow. When I got home, sure enough, there it was on my porch.
I was pretty irritated at that point, mostly because I was getting no response from Google about anything I was having trouble with. I get that FedEx sucks and a lot of these problems might just be with them, but getting NO RESPONSES at all just felt unacceptable. But whatever, I unboxed it, I immediately liked the phone and was about to let it all pass...until I noticed the screen was defective. There's just this perma-green thing in the bottom right corner. Visible on all screens, resetting didn't help, etc. Are you effin kidding me?

At this point I gave up on their non-existent email support and used their phone support. I'd highly recommend anybody else go this route if trying to get help. At least somebody will respond, unlike with email. The person was helpful, setup RMAs, and I was just going to get a refund. I was pretty done with the whole experience. I was about to grab an XS instead, almost out of spite, but after figuring out it was gonna cost me almost $600 bucks more apples to apples, I decided to give Google another shot and swapped my return to a replacement.
Fortunately for me, the replacement, THUS FAR, has gone well. Received it in 3 business days. No defects, appeared to be brand new, full retail box with accessories. So long as they clear my return without issue, life will be good. But be warned, I'm one of many who have had the packages randomly getting stuck or never even leaving the warehouse. Some people STILL haven't gotten their black friday orders. It appears to mostly effect the 64GB models, potentially pointing to stock issues at certain distribution centers. I got a 128GB white version, so I probably lucked out in that regard.
Yes and no. This is a 2019 phone now, releasing it with 4GB of RAM at a ~$500 price point could really turn off a lot of individuals since most phones in this price range still have 6-8GB of RAM.Sounds too good to be true honestly.
No lagging on my 2 XL that I've noticed. My friends and I spam each other with 9+ MMS pics/vids at a time in group chat nearly every day too.Anyone having lag and stutters and hiccups with the stock Google Messages text app ? My Pixel 3 XL has been smooth as butter all the time I have owned it, but just recently, last several days, the Messages app has sever stutter and pauses while sending a text or pressing back button to go to the text thread.
Might have to uninstall and go to Textra.
