    Got my Pixel 3 for $600 and it is a great phone! I use Google Fi other wise that Oneplus 6T looked nice!

    I agree with someone that mentioned a OnePlus 6. Slightly older, but a great value, headphone jack, etc. Runs great

    I bought OnePlus 6 and really happy with it. It has got a perfect camera, I think even better than my boyfriend's X.

    Pixel 3a and XL are back to Nexus prices? Though using plastic, which I don't mind. Headphone jack returns. 3700 mAH in the XL.

    3a is 151.3 x 70.1 x 8.2 mm. Regular 3 is 145.6 x 68.2 x 7.9 mm so the cases won't work

    The Pixel 3a and XL are going to sell like crazy. I'm even tempted to buy one.

    Why? I don't see anything special.

    Apparently the trade-in for an iPhone SE is $250. Or B&H and Best Buy throw in a $100 gift card for their store.

    The price for what you get. You get an amazing camera, stock android from a reputable company, REAL coverage from all carriers (unlike Chinese budget phones that get you 1/3 of the bands on some carriers), 3 years of patches from google, a headphone jack, a nice oled display, China doesn't get to spy on you, and overall its just a great phone.

    That deal at B&H is smoking! Sell the giftcard on ebay for 80$ and sell the min mobile sim for 30-40$ and you got a new Pixel 3a XL for 360$.... Damn I am tempted but my OP5T is doing just fine.

    I'm debating getting a $75 Pixel and trading it in for a free (well, $30 in taxes) 3a from T-Mobile.

    My gf traded in her v30 for the 3a XL and she is digging the speed increase. Those are quite the performers for the cost, especially if you got a trade in to get it for nearly nothing.

    It'd strictly be a backup device, really. I have an S10 I'm reluctantly using, might go Pixel 4 when it's released.

    3 years of software updates, camera, battery life, price...

    It's not really that hard to see the draw. The downside is of course the speed of the processor and the "build quality."
