I got the exact same thing! I carefully considered the implications with the lack of headphone jack, and realized that it's fairly rare that I use non bluetooth headphones with my phone anymore. I was also pleasantly surprised that the phone came with USB-C earbuds and a USB-C audio jack adapter, so they're pretty accommodating about not having an audio jack, I think :) I've been super pleased with it as well!

Got a pixel 3 xl had no issues with the notch but decided after owning 6 inch & up smartphones todowngrade to the 5.5 inch 3 & it's much better for my pockets & daily usage. The features being the same made it an easier choice as well. No saving shit for the more expensive or bigger model aka apple

The screen, speakers and haptics are my favorites. Front facing ultra wide is a nice touch as well. Yes screen, the notch is there and I tried to disable it but with less screen real estate it just doesn't feel right. Screen is vibrant and sharp and has lesser black crush, a lot better than the regular Pixel 3

Have had mine since early December. No case. Have dropped it several times at the gym and at work. The back has no scratch whatsoever the front a few scratches but really not bad for how I treat my phones. I can get a "free" upgrade from Vodafone and I tried the galaxy s10 and Huawei 30pro but I just didn't like their front facing camera. As for the notch - I can live with it. The only problem is when casting Spotify at home and it keeps disappearing from memory if I open another app..apart from that it's a great phone. The camera alone is worth it in my opinion.

I got mine during 50 percent sale. 480 USD after taxes for a 3XL. Loving it so far. Even after the update and keeping the digital wellbeing on. I haven't had issues with battery, ram, speakers, etc. I switched from OP 3T and this one is a killer.
