Re: Google Pixel 3 / Pixel 3 XL Pre-Orders & Reservations

hopefully the Google guy at best buy was wrong, but he was a google rep not a best buy rep. Thursday will tell i guess. I also look at the google shop website and the XL shows a 4 week delivery when pre ordering.

I also looked on the Google Store, and it showed 2-3 weeks shipping for the black Pixel XL 64GB. I then looked at the smaller Pixel 3, and it showed shipping November 5.  So, I'm hoping that's referring to the time frame if you were to order now versus those who preordered weeks ago. As you said, we'll know on Thursday. A December release would be incredibly disappointing and would possibly push people to other phones.

Re: Google Pixel 3 / Pixel 3 XL Pre-Orders & Reservations

Hey guys!

It doesn't seem like the Pixel 3 or Pixel 3 XL are having a good launch. Out of the box issues already. This seems to be a Google problem every single year.. So get it may not seem big problems to some but cutting the wireless charging to half speed, issues with the screen ( notch), camera and the audio isn't a great start.

Well at least they aren't catching on fire... lol

 

Most of these issues can be fixed via software updates. Camera mic is dissapointing, but not a deal breaker.

 

The camera from what I am seeing takes some stunning pics, that's more important to me.

My preorder now says "in progress", so I think November 1st is looking good!

Where can I check on the pre-order status ? The only thing I received was an e-mail and I can't figure out where to check the status on my account page.

 

Thanks !

My phone has been billed just now: I got the documentation about the service renewal for the new phone.

Just waiting for a tracking number now !

 

Let's hope it won't get shipped with Canada Post ! (because of the strikes)
