Another good price from Chitter chatter, the 64gb was £340 from Currys recently, worth the extra for the extra storage?

At last great man made his appearance after eventful day - but give us a 3xl!!!!

Well, at least 128gb... that's something, we're so demanding (at least these guys won't send you a Canadian model - hopefully 😁)

I had to sell my one when it kept dropping calls for no apparent reason. When I Googled the problem I found out how common it was.

Why didn't you use Google's warranty?

Why not a full refund then?

If fault was so common there wouldn't be any more Pixel 3s in market

From your link: (response from Support):
'Since your wife's Pixel 3 doesn't exhibit these problems on the same service provider and in the same locations and Safe Mode didn't have any impact, this may indeed be an issue with your phone. I'd suggest reaching out to Pixel Support to explore your options.'

Yeah, there's always a cheap, short-termish way of reacting to a fault. Those who go this way, trying to cover it up, end up paying a higher price in terms of customer loyalty in the long run - brand reputation usually in tatters eventually

Just look at 'China Inc' brand with Coronavirus outbreak - Google moved manufacturing of 4a to Vietnam

Switchy, while I've got you.

If you buy a used phone, is it best to get one still within its warranty and if so can it be transferred to you?

I have my eyes on a used S10 5G as its future proof with the 5G but also with the headphone jack which not many phones tend to offer, and I do like a Samsung.

If I recall it only came out mid last year so for the right price buying a used one means I should get 1.5 years of warranty out of it right?

Should have Googled with the Google causing an infinite Google feedback loop.
The main reason to buy this is updates, but even Google haven't been the first to update their OS, I forget who could have been the one to beat them, maybe OnePlus beat them to a security update one month. The camera is highly praised, however it's not the camera that is decent it's just an average sensor, you're paying for access to Gcam with all the computational photography on offer. I'm not a fan of Android for photography though, IOS has it beat in this regard, the 3rd party apps are on another level better on IOS.

So the question is, is this worth £399? I really think no this is vastly overpriced for what it offers. Average hardware, with possibly the best Android experience, but you can get very close on other platforms now i.e. Samsung / OnePlus.

As an overall package this phone is lacking, just like the Pixel 4. If Google don't get it right with the Pixel 5 then they should quit making phones. I'm a Pixel 2 user and whilst I liked the phone for the first 18 months, it's a real dog of a phone now.

I'm still running a Pixel 1 and love it but am looking to upgrade. If this isn't a great deal, what is better that's cheaper with the same build quality i.e. all metal body, good screen, not oversized etc?

A Realme Pro X2 has far better hardware spec than this phone. Doesn't have the updates or camera. Xperia 5 used is much cheaper and has a lot to be admired, the hardware is much better apart from the woeful fingerprint scanner. There's lots of Xiaomi phones and Huawei phones in this price range. Overplus etc etc. Go search you'll find loads of options. MrSwitch posts most of the phone deals here.

Thanks for the suggestions, they have bigger screens but will check out some more of the Xiaomi and Huawei models. I have a niche set of requirements I guess and the Pixel range is the only one I've found that ticks most boxes.

Me too. However I'm really unimpressed with the hardware in Pixel phones and we're both missing out on much better hardware. I'm waiting for a Pixel 5 in the hope Google get a clue how to make a decent phone again.

Keyword is 'not oversized', you don't have that many compact phones to choose from

At around this price point you should find Samsung S10e, you'd need to wait for a deal. Xperia 5 like mentioned above much better value for money right now (CeX)

If you really love your Pixel, I'd say wait for a better deal on this, you might find a grade A for about £300 next time there's a big discount code on eBay, or brand new for little more; even Pixel 4 could get close to this price soon

With a completely different UI you've got Honor 20 for example, really good value, reasonably compact but maybe not as well supported in future

I use my phone for emails, internet and not much else so I don't need super fast hardware to be honest. The Pixel 1 runs fine, it's just been dropped plenty!

Where are you buying the s10 5g from?
I got the Pixel 3 on a killer O2 Refresh deal last year, £308. I sold it after a few months (for £320) and the phone has never been as cheap since.
It's a good phone. Well-built and nice to hold, clean Android, brilliant camera, but the battery was poor; which is why I sold it.

And to add, the battery is below average. Main reason I've kept this phone is because
the camera and software are top drawer. I like the design too.

I'm honestly unsure if manufacturer warranty transfers to the next buyer, you can ask the seller for their original receipt, that way if you need to claim you have proof it's still in warranty.

Unlike Google whereby the warranty stays with the phone.
