    Is the Pixel 3 XL still a disappointment?

    Some reviews show the Huawei Mate 20 Pro is the top camera phone now?

    MKBHD Just dropped the Pixel 3 XL as his daily driver in favor of the Mate 20 Pro.

      Would like to know too. Tossing between S9 or pixel 3.

      Still the best camera

      But I can see why he picked the mate 20 pro with its ridiculously long battery life

    • +2 votes

      Mate 20 pro have the better camera and more processing power for the pictures because of the Kirin 980 which is currently more powerful than pixel 3's Snapdragon 845.

      But pixel 3's picture software processing is no joke. Even with a weaker CPU, the pictures still come out amazing. But that is the only good point along with having pure android.

        Hey, have had the Pixel 3 since December and have had no issues with it. I keep seeing the same arguments online about which phone is better and a lot of bad reviews on the Pixel 3 but at the end of the day the apps I use aren't made by Google like Messenger and Instagram so as long as the phone isnt slow I really don't have any issues. If you are someone who is in the Apple ecosystem then stick to Apple but if not Google, Samsung, and Huawei all make great phones.

        bottom line is that picking a phone is a personal choice based on what YOU need it for and YOUR lifestyle. So just go with that and I doubt you will make the wrong choice.

        Hope this somewhat helps to making a decision :)

      I remember him dropping pixel 3 XL for one plus 6T and he had mate 20 pro while shooting what's inside my bag with Verge only because it was on review period, at least that's what I believe. But mate if it's for camera, pixel 3/ XL is unbeatable till this point.

      the giant notch is a deal breaker for many.

      Pixel 3XL owner here, switched from Samsung Galaxy Note 8 in November 2018.

      I've owned the phone for 3 months now and it's been fantastic so far. My only real complaint is that the battery life is pretty crappy, but just enough to get you through the day with heavy use.

      I bought a pixel stand, which is the wireless charger dock, and that's been a real game changer too. It's like having a Google home, a photo slideshow frame and an alarm clock all in one. Quite expensive, but it's really enhanced the phone experience for me.

      The notch really isn't as bad as people make it out to be. I stopped noticing it after the first day I got my phone.

      I would recommend the Pixel 3XL any day of the week, it's a fantastic phone.

      •  

        May I ask about the Google Pixel stand? How do you configure the settings? Mine currently is just used as a wireless charger for end of nights.. and it drives me insane with its 'always on' display. Admittedly I haven't tried changing anything. Felt the only way to make changes to its settings is to do it while the phone is docked (felt awkward).

        • +2 votes

          Settings > Connected devices/previously connected devices > pixel stand > then choose screen off when dark. That should do the trick. You can also change all other settings for the stand there.

      •  

        Great summary - also have one, camera is hands down better than the mate 20 pro, battery life is meh but I am yet to find a situation where I have had to be desperately managing use.

    •  

      I'd personally take the pixel as I prefer the clean Android and frequent updates, and I somewhat don't like the Chinese government spying on me =p

      The wide angle selfie seems like a good idea for those that take selfies.

      The biggest annoyance for me is the lack of lossless zoom…but honestly I never zoom in on a phone anyway (possibly because I can't currently?)

    Glad that mobile plan prices going down. I still remember 2015 for iphone6s 64gb I was paying around $80 and just 3gb data

    •  

      Same here, 2016 contract paying $65 for 4GB with Samsung S8 Plus.

    •  

      I remember paying $79 p/m with Vodafone for $300 worth of calls/sms and zero data (around 2005)…lol

    •  

      It was a painful moment with my Vodafone contract with iPhone 6s Plus 64Gb $98/3Gb for my miss since Oct 2015.
      Remember I was a nerd that time, so Vodafone is a big NO for me (forever).

  •  

    8 Plus is $5 more a month than last years offer but with 10gb more data.

    Does Optus issue a tax invoice for the full price of the phone with contracts? For TRS?

    •  

      no, shipping invoice only shows unit shipped.. your account monthly billing will get the phone installment ontop of the plan

  • +3 votes

    Delete, stupid question

  •  

    Wasnt the mate 20 pro $84 p.m with 100 gigs? That was a better deal

    • +1 vote

      It was last night I checked. It was one of those special offers so I guess it just ended.

      But $75 for the Mate20 Pro 128Gb is not bad if you can put up with 4Gb or data or data pool it with another Optus service. $1,800 less the phone cost of around $1,500 you end up with $12.50/month for the plan.

      •  

        But $75 for the Mate20 Pro 128Gb is not bad

        It's $74 on this plan for 30Gb of data, and if the HN 10% discount applies that makes it $66.60/month.

        •  

          Yes you are right cos i missed the special extra data for $1 less and also a freebud. Will be dropping by the Optus store tomorrow and hope to get a couple of things confirmed before we add this to the bundle.

          We need to data share or include the entertainment extras. Do you know if HN can do those?

          •  

            @DarkOz: Afraid I don't.

            Though I think that's all part of the basic Optus service.

            I'll be trying to get to a store tomorrow if I decide the Mate 20 Pro is in budget.

            •  

              @Xenocaust: I got the mate 20 pro with the previous optus deal.. wasn't worth it. The screen touch lag is a deal breaker.. plus feels plasticky and not premium. Returned the phone "sealed" :)

    Wow Pixel 3 for $59/month is pretty great value.

    Wonder if Telstra has any plans on matching soon, their best pixel 3 price ATM is $69 (with a $10 port in bonus) for only 8GB.

    Says 30GB DATA New services only even when you select I'm with Optus?

    •  

      Yes I had chat with their Sales representative, she confirmed it is only available for new services not for upgrade. :-(

    Harvey Norman has 10% off plans for new customers

    •  

      Can HN 10% off stack on this promotion? it's better then.

    •  

      Is this on the website or in-store?

      • +2 votes

        in-store just go in & ask, they also throw in case & tempered screen at times just ask.. unless these plans are excluded should have no issue

        • +1 vote

          Thanks. Maybe drop in this Arvo.

        • +9 votes

          Did exactly this, asked for case and guard, first sales person goes of course, then second one goes no can do. Then the Optus guy who was there goes fine I'll double your data. So $53/m with 60gb data.

          This was at the Campelltown store if anyone else wants to try their luck.

          •  

            @zorrt: That sounds amazing, my Samsung s7 battery is just hopeless since the Andriod 8.0 upgrade and I've just came out of contract. Also I ported out of Optus to a Catch Connect SIM so would I be eligible for this deal?

          •  

            @zorrt: You're very lucky, I went into an Optus and called around a few Harvey Normans and they all can't do the double data

      Only for Port ins

    Get the same plan from Harvey Norman for additional. 10% off

    I’m seeing this as iPhone X 64GB for $59 per month. Makes the phone itself about $660 which is not bad at all.

  •  

    I clicked existing customer and it still shows the 30 GB offer. It stated "new services only" as part of the terms and conditions. Confusing…
    Also, anyone knows if this is a own or lease plan ?

  • +3 votes

    Now just need Telstra or Vodafone to chime in with their deal so I can port my optus across to them :P Rotating every 2 years between providers

  •  

    Very tempted to upgrade from my S8+ to the pixel 3 for $53 a month (if the HN 10% off plans thing is true)… Was planning on waiting for the S10 but don't know what to do now :/

    • +1 vote

      s10 release date is feb 20, optus deal ends 31 march, wait & see what deals are offered for the s10.. & yes HN 10% off is true lol

      • +1 vote

        Cool, thanks for confirming the HN pricing. Do you know how long that's on offer for or is that a long running deal?

        Yeah when I got my S8+ on release Woolworths mobile (Telstra network) were offering the best deals at the time, think I'm paying about $68 a month for it and I got around a $100 cashback through cash rewards too. Will be interesting what Woolworths offer this time.

        •  

          deal is off & on regularly, think 10% is standard through HN just need to ask, last year august they offered 20% off, i was in-store on the weekend & asked was told its still available

    • -1 vote

      Definitely wait. Also don't just P to pixel if you use the Samsung software at all, it's extremely basic.

    Can i use student discount?
