Means to say from N6 to Pixel 3XL, all have issues
for a recent newbie on Pixel 3, what are the current issues? not encountered any yet..

but a few observations from a multi generation iOS (still hold iphone 7 and Xr) switch over
1) audio on bluetooth headset sounds better on iOS (bose, westone bluetooth cable) when connected to Pixel 3 already show AAC (for bose) and aptX (for westone). Maybe placebo..cos been listening to iOS for so long. but they do sound different on the pixel 3.

2) the usb-c to audio adaptor is crap! ok maybe not... but the audio output from the adaptor is bad! so it can be anything along the audio chain degrading the audio

3) build quality is still a few notches from apple. when playing music at >50% volume, the glass back resonates/vibrates quite a bit. and the glass front and back meet the meta frame is still not seamlessly gapless.

All observation on Q beta 3.

so any good?
1) I actually prefer the screen on P3 (on natural setting) than iphone Xr. Although i read that not a single android app (even native google apps) support the wide gamut P3 screen (all just standard sRGB colors). wide gamut already support since oreo...but.. seems like neither google nor developers pushing for it.
2) camera is a joy to use and pics pop. But i miss the square mode on iOS
3) perfect size and weight distribution (i need to get a spigen thin fit soon, the google pixel fabric casing which came free is quite bulky)

If you take selfies/wefies regularly, the front-facing camera on the XS totally cannot fight with Pixel 3's. Haha
Ya I know, but os experience completely no fight haha

Actually just started using my iPhone X after quite a while on pixel 3 and s10 plus. Quite tempted to go for XS Max now haha
Actually bigger android (s10plus or p3XL) and smaller iphone like (iphone XS) is a good combo hahaha best of both worlds

Google Drive dark mode is showing up for some users. This is a server-side change.
