    Domayne online will price match, so for those with the Amex offer you can buy directly rather than using gift cards to get smartphone screen insurance (if you have the right Amex card).

    No Chromecast though with that option.

    •  

      How to price match online?

      •  

        if anything like HN's (being same company), just talk to them via Online Chat popup. send them related links and they should approve and send you a Promo code to use within 24hrs

    Btw how the camera of this phone compare with Huawei mate 20?

    • +1 vote

      This has the best camera of any phone, at least said by MKBHD.

    •  

      Check out the reviews by DxOmark. Those guys know what they're doing

    • +2 votes

      No wide-angle or optical zoom lense. The Pixel 3XL is much less versatile.
      The mate 20 pro also has the larger sensor, making for better RAW photos if you like to edit your photos yourself instead of relying on software.

    •  

      The selfie camera is rated the best on the 3/3XL, tied with the Note 9. Noone else even comes close. Overall, it comes out on top - tied with the Note 9 in regards to both cameras, photo and video.

      The M20 Pro (Guessing you aren't meaning M20) has a selfie camera rated some 22% worse (or 20 points) and the main camera is a few points difference on photos and tied on video.

      • +1 vote

        Who cares about selfie cameras? At least 80% of the people who gives a (profanity) about cameras don't.

        Pixel 3/XL has slightly better normal image quality and video quality, but Mate 20 Pro has a MUCH MUCH more versatile setup while "normal" image quality is very close to or on par with Pixels.

        •  

          From what I read and saw the mate 20 pro/p20 pro suffer from over smoothing on faces (even with beauty mode set to 0). If you're not interested in doing pictures of people this wouldn't effect you.

          •  

            @exc3113nce: From what I know as well, while the camera is more versatile on the Mate - colour reproduction is better on the Pixels. They look a tad washed out, and the Note 9 does the opposite - it makes colours too vivid (which may be good to some people).

            Some moments aren't going to wait for you to choose the right set up, so the versatility isn't always needed.

    Not a fan of bigger notch and bazel. Google went backward.

    No doubt all the android phone makers will be unloading their SD845 flagships before the SD855 devices arrive
    899 for a pixel 3 beats the US price, (at current time 899 aud = 640 usd) and this price includes GST.
    There are a couple new camera features for the SD855 like 4k HDR video capture, but for the average consumer the pixel 3 would suffice for a couple years as phones do

    You need to spend 750 for the amex offer. Max value of gift cards is 500?

      1x $500

        Is this validated to work? I can see no exclusions on GC's which is surprising

      •  

        Did you get the $150 back from Amex after buying a gift card instore?

      •  

        I bought them online and got the $150 credit from Amex.

        •  

          Can you confirm the gift card values you purchased to entitle for this? All in 1 purchase too - adding the 3 cards to shopping cart, then paying total with your AMEX?
          Assume it was similar to above from mahdoo (500+200+50), correct?
          Just want to check before it follow same steps, so as not to avoid receiving the $150 credit :)
          Thanks.

          •  

            @swampson: Yes yes and yes.

            You can buy in separate transactions too. I've purchased 8 x 750 lots.

            7x in-store as Ive had some previous bad experiences with online orders not neing fullfilled and under 'review'. End up losing the $150 credit so I didn't risk it.

            1x online (which went under review again however emailed them immediately to verify legitimacy and order was mailed out to me.

            Went in store to purchase the gift cards and due to the inexperienced staff I've had to purchase 7 x 500 7 x 200 7 x 50 all in separate individual transactions. Luckily the store was/ is often dead because the lady refused to try anything else I suggested lol.

            •  

              @vapingwinnieblues: thanks mate - i did some more research, and after getting quite a bit of run around and conflict from web chat / on call etc about whether it could be done or not, i visited in person (Domayne at Caringbah, Sydney), and a bloke there handled it direct. Got my AMEX email moments later, so hopefully all will be good.

              holy moly, 7x 'all of those' - all your cards? good work.

    With the Amex offer, is it possible to buy physical gift cards from a Domayne store rather than buy egift cards from Domayne Online? Then use them at Harvey Norman?

    •  

      yes you should be able to as it says on HN website that "You can use Harvey Norman, Domayne, and Joyce Mayne gift cards." Hope this helps

    •  

      Yes. I bought the gift cards online at Domayne and used them in-store at Harvey Norman. Got the $150 cash back from Amex the next day.

  •  

    Still far too expensive. The XL should be at 800 for it to classified as fair pricing.

    Hoping the Note 9 comes down to around 800 after a few weeks of the S10 being on the market.

    • +1 vote

      YEah it does seem a bit expensive for only 64GB.

      My sister bought S9+ 256GB in Dec for $1049 (same price as 64GB 3XL), came with a bonus 512GB SD card (worth about $200), and has equivalent specs.

      • -1 vote

        Wow that is a decent deal. I'd love to grab an S9 but they really messed up the battery life on them :(.

        I suspect the S10 will cost 1500 ish which is way too much. Hopefully the prices come down on last gen models.

        • +2 votes

          1500+ is about how much a flagship phone will go for these days.

          Apple sets the trends, others follow.

          The advantage Samsung's S phones have is that they release early in the year (March or April) with the same gen SoC as phones that release late in the year like Pixel. Samsung phones do get discounted, and by the time the Pixel is available, the Samsung can be had for a few hundred dollars cheaper. It will also be cheaper than the Note which also releases late in the year.

          If you buy the smaller Pixel you only get a 1080p phone, and past gens weren't even OLED. No SD, no headphone, but you do get a notch. Thanks Google.

          •  

            @lostn:

            No SD, no headphone, but you do get unlimited photo and video backup. Thanks Google.

            FTFY.

                  @andrgram:

                  I don't know why people are complaining it's only 64GB. What are you going to be fill it up with so quickly?

                  Media (videos) not taken by myself. 64GB is a pittance unless you are streaming it (see below). I don't have wifi except at home.

                  I download videos straight from youtube so I don't use to use my mobile data when I'm at work. But I also watch other content like anime and that takes up even more than youtube videos.

                  Google offer full resolution image and video uploads with unlimited storage on their Pixel devices.

                  Only for a limited time. And you need a big data plan to go with it. It's also not instantaneous like regular storage.

                  The Pixel 3 and 3 XL continue that trend, thankfully. However, just like with the Pixel 2 series, there is a limit to the free photo backup. Pixel 3 and 3 XL owners can backup photos at the original resolution until January 31st, 2022. To be clear, photos uploaded at original resolution will retain that status after January 2022. Instead, photos uploaded from Pixel 3 and 3 XL devices after that date will eat into Drive storage or will be scaled back to ‘High quality.’ For reference, the Pixel 2 series launched in 2017 and will get free storage until the end of 2020.

                  So you got 3 years, which to be fair should last the lifetime of the device, but it still doesn't beat the speed and convenience of local storage.

            • +1 vote

              @pennypincher98: i agree..i think its more the ability to flex storage capacities. I stream movies, stream music & cloud backup photos…almost 2 years into my S8 and i have 20gb free with my 64gb SD unmounted. I guess more storage would be warranted if you travel a lot and photos/videos clog up with limited access to the cloud.

            •  

              @pennypincher98: Local storage of photos and videos…. It's literally the main reason anyone would buy a Pixel, to take possibly the best mobile phone photos of things and store them on their phone.

            •  

              @pennypincher98: Apps (games) and video (children).

              Cloud storage does you no good with installing games, and does no good with videos unless you're on wifi to upload them.

                @justtoreply: To all who have replied:
                * I'm not one to have 60GB of apps on my phone - in fact, I haven't met anyone who has.
                * I don't watch movies on a 6 inch screen - I see very few people actually doing this. Most use a bigger screen.
                * With photos, you've literally got 3 years to transfer them from your drive to a laptop/PC with more storage. Having a phone with 512GB (with a rumoured 1TB) of storage strikes me as ridiculous.

                To keep children happy, they don't need 60GB of apps and videos every time you go on a trip.

    Pixel 3xl has got to be the ugliest phone ever, what were they thinking?

      Last year I would've said the Pixel 2 in the exact same way. You can hide the bezel if you wish though - that's a big advantage the Pixel 2 didn't have

      •  

        Hide the bezel? You mean show the notch? The Pixel 3 XL is a Pixel 2 XL but with a really ugly notch, worse battery life, better screen, slightly better speakers and is much more expensive.

    Can you use an e-gift card in store?

  •  

    For everyone asking about using Domayne gift cards at Harvey Norman.
    Yes it is possible. I bought my Sonos sub a few weeks ago this way. I first tried to buy the gift cards at Domayne in store and the girl spoke to her manager and said something about the system being down.

    Went online, added three gift cards to the cart ($500, $200, $50), bought with Amex. They send an email about a review but in less than an hour it goes through and you get three mails with barcodes.

    Next go to Harvey Norman and simply show the bar codes when it’s time to pay.

    The Amex credit comes through on the next day.

    Even the XL is still on a single lens. That's pretty stingy.

  •  

    People buying gift cards from Domayne, bare in mind this will not offer screen protection for the phone. Best method is to get Damayne to price match and pay for the phone directly with the Amex - this way Aemx will cover your phone for screen damages.

    Google store have joined the discount party,selling at $899 for all three colours as well.

    •  

      This is a decent deal, Google store have insane support. If your phone breaks with them, you do a short process of troubleshooting with them on the phone. Then they send you a brand new device if that doesn't resolve the issue, then when the new device arrives, put the non working one into the box, and send it back with no postage fee, from memory a courier picked it up.

      That was my experience anyway, I went through it twice.

    I went in to HN today to get a Pixel 3 64gb for $899, the guy said I'd be better off getting it on a plan (with Optus). I'm like yeah nah thanks, but then he quoted me $59/mon for 24mon.. for 30gb +unlimited talk/text.

    I'm already with Optus and pay $40/mon (BYO) for that. so that would pretty much make it 24 x $19 = $456 for the phone right?

    it wasn't advertised for this price anywhere. what's the catch?

    •  

      ps. long time lurker first time poster. cheers!

    • +1 vote

      The catch is that you're on $40 per month BYO haha. You can get $30 a month for most plans that give you 30GB or if you shop around much cheaper (Catch recently). I pay $17 a month for 31GB (part of the Catch Connect deal).

    • +1 vote

      Depends on your data usage.

      I use Kogan, bought the 365 day plans twice now, both times $205 for the year on sale. Includes 13GB data a month and unlimited calls/texts.

      $205 x 2 + $899 Pixel = $1309

      Optus $59 per month x 24 = $1416

      it's a good deal if you use the data, I don't use all 13GB a month personally, and Kogan keep upping the data, so sticking with them.

      I'm still using my Nexus 5X, so my "plan" works out at $17 a monthish, and I'm just deciding if I wanna jump on getting a flagship phone.

      • +1 vote

        You're also not locked in to a plan for 24 months which is awesome given the way telco's are going about data and different streaming services etc…

        •  

          agreed. If you plan on sticking with Optus it would work out cheaper and Optus just started their no contract plans recently so you're free to move, you just need to pay out the remaining handset costs.

      •  

        It certainly did seem like a pretty good deal!

        So, I went back today to get the pixel 3 on the 59/month deal. Was a different guy today, i'm like old mate yesterday said you could do this deal, he's like yep great let's do it.

        We go sit down and do the sign up stuff,
        he asks if I'm porting, I tell him no I'm already with Optus, he says cool. He calls Optus to set it up. We go through all my details and everything, finally the lady on the phone is like ohh he's already with Optus, this is a deal for new customers. It'll be 80/month instead for him.

        I say, ok I will buy it outright thanks.

        •  

          Haha! A friend of mine had the similar issue recently where he completed the whole sign up process and later got told that he wasn't eligible. The work around this is you can buy a cheap Vodafone/Telstra Sim, port your number to them. Then go HN as if nothing happened and try again,that should work.
