    At this point the only surprise Google can make is if it can actually surprise anyone.

    It's weird that Marques was only allowed to handle the unit at a Google office (you can see someone always hovering near him in the background), while Lewis was able to to get his hands on all variants of the Pixel 3 and 3XL.

    sadly, locally sourcing a pixel 3 unit will be difficult

    I've been hoping that for years. But that's highly unlikely. For now Pixels seem more of a showcase for Google, rather than something aimed at gaining market share.

    Makes me wonder why is Google making phones? They clearly have no intention to be a market leader nor trying to gain significant market share. Is it just to showcase Android? To show off? To get more user data? Hahaha. I have an idea for Google why don’t they just subsidize the phone and just compensate it by the user agreeing to use their data for ads targeting. And then just push those ads to the phone in a subtle and unobstrusive way. Hahahahaha Imagine having a Google phone with flagship specs and built quality but at half the price.

    ^My personal theory for the Nexus line... Google employees/Android developers need a phone to use - why not make a couple of extra units for the fanboys?

    Pixel - Google wants to show the world that they can compete with Apple and Microsoft

    I wonder what's next...

    This is why Google makes Pixels. To show that Apple and the Chinese aren't number one in everything, and that there are things Google's competitors can't do. Pixels are showcases.

    Android Police has the new camera app available for all Pixel models. I have gen 1 and the Night Sight is very good.
