I'm just using Rhinoshield Crashguard. It's basically just a bumper case. I have the front installed with Rhinoshield Impact Protection screen protector (not glass). And I have the Naked Slickerap for the back and sides.

For me this is the best thin setup with enough protection.

Same setup for my P30 Pro.
While on my iPhone XS Max, I have the Rhinoshield Suit with camera adapter for lenses. I'm using the Moment Wide lens for photo/videos.

Recently I dropped my pixel 3 into a toilet bowl and now it only accepts USB c charging or earpiece one side up. If plug in the other side, it doesn't charge or detect earpiece. Should I bring to warranty centre?

You should send it to warranty.
Pixel 3 is supposed to withstand dropping in water. I always use mine in the shower.

i got a weird prob with my pixel 3 XL this morning
Running latest Android Q beta

I set my alarm at 4.45am and 5am.On the previous night,i had charged my phone to 100% before going to bed.

When the alarmed sounded at 4.45am,i woke up,dismiss the alarm and went back to slp,expecting to slp 15 mins more

I slept for a while,expecting the alarm to sound.When i checked the phone,it couldnt be turned on.i looked at my watch it was 5.10AM

I plugged my phone to the charging cable and realised the battery had completely been drained

Anyone encounter this before

Before sending to the service center, try to clean the USB port first.

Hopefully, there is no sh*t or dirt stuck there.

Don't think it's a pixel thing. My essential phone, iPad pro also faces the same issue from time to time.

When you plug in and out frequently, that point of contact becomes wear and tear easily.

Anyway, it is so basic and easy thing to do first.

No lah bro don't think it's a wear and tear issue. When I first got my iPad pro I think within first 5 charge already kena this issue liao.

Plug in 20% at night still 20%. I think it's probably a USB C thing bah haha.
