Just trying to decide if I should actually wait for the Pixel 3 to come out, or just get the Pixel 2 in the next month (or so). I'm currently using a Nexus 6P phone, so either the Pixel 2 or 3 will be a large enough upgrade to be worth it. Plus, I plan to get the smaller version (I plan to get the XL for myself) for mom (she's on my cell plan) since she's using an old Samsung Galaxy S4. Either way, I'll be getting the unlocked version since I hate the crap the phone carriers load onto the devices. Before any apple fanboi's post up... Don't... I'm NOT getting anything from [cr]apple for either myself of her. Just NOT gonna happen. So you can tuck those fruit decorated things up you know where and STFU about them. One of the items that might push my decision is if they include the fingerprint reader on the Pixel 3 line. I have it on my Nexus 6P and like using it a lot. I'm NOT looking to have something that uses facial recognition to decide if I'm me or not. Since I've read about those getting tricked more than a few times. From what I've been able to find (online even tonight), the Pixel 3 phones will include the fingerprint reader on the back (like my 6P). Which is good since I find it easy to use. BTW, since I'm 'IT guy' for mom, I really need to get her onto a phone that has the same OS as mine. Hers is so far back that navigating on it (for me) isn't easy anymore. Plus, she's missing a LOT of the features common in the newer phones/OS levels.
