Anyone else extremely disappointed by Google today. I'll probably still get a pixel 3 but I'm not happy about it

It was pretty lackluster with everything being leaked ahead. The Google home with a screen is interesting for the price, but I won't be getting.

Yeah. I definitely don't feel compelled to upgrade from my pixel 2.

Haven't ordered anything yet. Sarah wants/needs a new phone also and after adding everything to my cart it was a hard pick to swallow the $1600+ price tag. Google doesn't typically do much for sales but I might wait it out for a project fi deal that will be beneficial rather than the new line promo

camera worked, just not 100% by showing dark spots because of dirt on the lens and it didn't like bright light anymore

Haha. If a camera doesn't work 100% of the time then I would say it was broken.
