    @fahnix - How long you had the Pixel 3? Like it? Any issues?

    It's been good to me. No issues at all. Had it for close to 9 months now. Getting all the latest and greatest updates first is pretty cool. Came from an original Pixel prior to the Pixel 3. Only reason I even upgraded was because I caught it on a great deal and I also had device dollars I had to spend since they were expiring.

    Nice. Glad it's working out for you. :thumbsup: I have a few friends that are Pixel fans.

    My only "pure" Android is the Galaxy Nexus ( https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Galaxy_Nexus ) which I had in 2011. I can't believe it's been that long ago.

    I've had a few LG phones (G2 and G3), Samsung phones (S3, S5, S7 and currently S8+ for work) and Motorola (Moto G4 and Moto G6 - current personal phone). The Motorola Moto G6 is an unlocked phone that I only paid $180 for from Amazon last year.

    I'm just thinking about other options once the Moto G6 is done. I'm not about spending that crazy money for a new phone.

    I had the Tmobile G1 (first produced Android phone, 2018) and Nexus that were pure Android, but I also had an S2 and S4 that I rooted to make them pure Android


    Pics of the G1 for those that are not familiar with it. Often called a brick with a chin by people who had them.

    Still debating between an iPhone 11 Pro Max or Pixel 4 XL. Truthfully not impressed with Google's latest and greatest.

    I have been debating on a new phone. I have always had Motorola phones since the original droid. Currently I have a Z2 Force and have enjoyed it. I'm just not crazy about Moto's new phones. I'm debating between the Galaxy Note 10+ and the iPhone 11 pro. Anyone have a suggestion on which way to go?

    iPhone 11 Pro is smaller than the 11 so I'd suggest you go Max if you can. Samsung's UI just plain sucks.

    Thanks, the Samsung UI is what has always kept me from going with them in the past.

    Since you always include your Tapatalk Signature.... I see you have the Pixel 3 XL. What's wrong with it? I've heard it's a great phone.

    I've also heard it's not worth getting the Pixel 4/4XL.

    I've had the cheaper Motorola phones lol (Moto G4 and Moto G6). But my work phone is the Samsung S8+

    What don't you like about the Samsung UI?

    I'd rather have Samsung UI than Apple OS. I'm so use to Android.

    I finally updated my old iPhone 6 to an iPhone XR in August. It's.............fine, I guess.
    Although, if what I'm reading becomes reality (Apple moving iPhones to a subscription-type service), I'll be dumping Apple faster than last night's bean dip.

    I haven't bought a new phone in a long time. I always have problems with speakers going out on them. Probably from my job. A lot of times when there was an issue, they would bump me up to the newest model. We bought my wife an iPhone 6 maybe 5 years ago that she still uses. So right now at this point I'm fine with buying something new for us.

    The Pixel 3 is an awesome phone but 4GB of RAM isn't enough for multitasking. The Pixel 4 now packs 6GB of RAM but that really isn't enough compared to other flagship phones. The 90hz Display is sweet but users are reporting something like 6hr Battery Life. So yeah..

    Apple finally caught up with their camera game and their ecosystem is just as good as Google's. I usually swap back and forth every couple years.

    I can't stand Samsung's bloatware or Bixby? That how you spell it? Although I'm really digging the Galaxy Watch Active 2.

    Does the speaker go out because you crank the music up to max?

    What kind of multitasking are you doing that 4GB of RAM isn't enough for you?
    How do you deal with switching OS's every couple years?
    As for Bloatware... I haven't really had any issues.
    As for Bixby.. I have disabled it.

    It's still has the dedicated button that won't do anything else though, right?

    That's correct. If I press the button it says "To start Bixby, press and hold the Bixby key"

    No I work in a machine shop and all the fine metal dust seems to get into them and screws them up. It starts to crackling and gets hard to hear. I've started putting a piece of clear tape over the speaker and that has helped a ton.
