re: Thoughts on Google Pixel 3 + 3XL - bbap
FWIW most of the reviews for the pixel 3/3xl have been very favorable. Seems like it's a great phone if you can get past the notch on the xl. Or just get the smaller size if you are ok with a smaller phone. ...

re: Thoughts on Google Pixel 3 + 3XL - bbap
the pixel 2 was not. that was a pixel 2xl issue that was completely overblown. I've had the phone for a full year and have never noticed it. I think it's noticeable if you look at the phone from the extreme side....

re: Thoughts on Google Pixel 3 + 3XL - bbap
Google's hardware certainly isn't the best in the business but I'd hardly say it sucks. Their software is by far better than anything else on the market. To say "google just sucks" makes me realize you aren't even worth debating. Also, not really sure how else to tell you this but speakers tha...

re: Thoughts on Google Pixel 3 + 3XL - bbap
You continue to ignore the fact that speakers on the bottom get muffled/distorted by people's hands. I hope google never changes their design. Everyone who is pushing for 100% screen ratio at a high cost to speakers are on the wrong track....

If and when that happens I'll go shopping rat...

[quote]Also, it forces non-Google Photos users to use Google Photos. I'm a realist who understands that some people are going to be using iPhone no matter what.

re: PNC advertising 2.2% savings accounts - bbap
I've read through the fine print pretty carefully looking for any catches. I couldn't really find any. I've been looking for a savings account to keep my rainy day money that pays better than what I currently am using. 2.2% would be a significant increase for me....
