That was when the showed the Google Pixel 3.
Old tech (really 4GB/64GB? with a Snapdragon 845 in end 2018?), old design, single camera (yay, WE WANT TO BELIEVE in AI... It's almost like Mulder's poster), and the price?
Well, let it put me this way, because we want to be happy, shiny positive: It's a great price with an Exynos 9810 Octa, 8GB RAM, 512GB storage, Dual Camera with optical zoom, MicroSD card expansion and a 3,5mm headphone jack.
Only thing is... Nothing of that is in the Google Pixel 3. It's a mid-range phone in Q4/2018 for a premium price. Google gone Apple 2.0... Oct 9th,2018 a sad day.
