It's a good price, but man, the battery life on this was worse that the original Pixel XL. Real shame. Otherwise (apart from the stuttering/lag) an excellent phone.
Good price for pristine, however I personally wouldn't bother paying the extra over the very good or even the good condition ones. I got my "good condition" 3XL from Music Magpie a couple of months ago on one of the previous deals and there are no obvious imperfections at all.

Worth noting that there have been better deals recently - my 128gb Pixel 3XL in good condition was £339.

£306 for a good condition one is arguably a better deal IMHO.
Has better camera score on DXO Mark than iPhone XR.
Only 4GB RAM kills it for me.

This has been a bit of an issue for me moving from a Oneplus 3T with 6Gb. Apart from this it's a clear upgrade but the lower RAM and the way the phone manages its RAM requirements has meant I've had to adapt the way I use it. I don't regret my purchase, but it's such a shame on an otherwise great phone.

That's where I'm at ND. My OP3 was only £336 on day one an also has 6GB RAM. Why would I buy a used phone with less RAM that costs more than my OP3? (apart from the camera.)

Google have a habit of this. 64GB base storage and 128 as the only other option are strangely poor, as was the decision to end free Google Photos storage (which probably has a tiny marginal cost). I like the idea of pure Android but not the hardware.

Yep, that was exactly the decision I weighed up. However, my Oneplus was three years old, the battery was knackered and wasn't even lasting a day and I felt left behind on the camera front.

At just over £300, and having sold my 3T for £100, I'm happy, but I would wish for just a little more RAM.
Lets hope Google puts 6GB in the 4a.

I must be lucky, as my battery in the OP3 is still brilliant. As a casual user, get either 2 days of standby with 3 hours of screen on time, or 3 days of standby with 2 hours of SOT.

I'd probably say I'm a fairly heavy user, particularly due to using my phone as a Sat-Nav. most days - I expect my usage and overnight charging are what eventually did for my battery.

I'm taking extra care with my new Pixel 3XL to help the battery stay healthy long term by using Accubattery to help limit charging cycles to 80% full. Although this does mean the battery doesn't always last the full day without a top up depending on use and how long my day is (I do miss Dash charging as well).
I’m just waiting for a 3 to dip hopefully on the Boxing Day sales and I’m buying...
but the gives on processor/headphone jack/gorilla glass are tedious between the various models, and have delayed me from buying to date.
Was hoping the 4 line would fix this but alas I’ll keep ranting in the comments till price comes down or they make a complete spec phone!

Honestly I wouldn't worry about it, of the battery becomes that bad then Google should swap it out, they did for me when I had a pixel 2 with poor battery life..
I've now moved to a pixel 3a XL and the battery life is just amazing.

I ended up getting a Newdery Pixel 3 XL battery case - about £25-£30 off eBay/Amazon. Easily get a full day now, but you lose the ability to plug in earphones (not an issue for me as I use BT earphones) and it stops the wireless charging - but I find it's faster to cable charge it anyway. Plus it makes it all a bit bulky. The price of all day heavy-use battery-life on this phone I'm afraid.
I sold my Pixel 3 XL in anticipation of the Pixel 4, then bought an S10 as the P4 was garbage. If only the S10 ran raw android and had Googles visual core processor, it'd be a beast.

Some people at Google towers need to be replaced, whether it be the management or the designers, or both. The high priced, repeated amateur hour lamentable hardware is inexcusable, with the P4 being the final straw.

Yes ND, I think that's the big difference between you and I. As a casual user, I'm only putting a cycle through the battery every 2 to 3 days, whereas it's once a day for you.
