Wait For More Information
We know Google's new phones will be great devices. We know it'll have the latest Snapdragon processor with the best performance on the market, 6-8GB of RAM, more storage, more cameras, a bigger screen and everything else people love. We know all of that.
What we don't know is all of the specifics. Will Google be able to offer the same great experience and sound without front speakers and a fingerprint scanner. How will the face unlock work? Will buyers pass on the phone for having no fingerprint scanner at all? We're not sure.
Will 2019 finally be the year that Google offers more than one camera on the back? Even if they have software that makes the single Pixel 3 camera nearly as good as the triple camera phones available throughout 2018. Who knows. We might even get a Google Pixel Ultra in 2019. (Yes, yes we now know it'll have multiple cameras.)
Perhaps the biggest reason to wait, for me, is because of the OnePlus 7T. This year OnePlus released two phones and the Pro was incredible, but expensive, which made it worth waiting for the Pixel 4. But now, we're also thinking it's worth waiting to see how much Google asks for the P4, and then decide if you want to pay that or save money and get the new OnePlus 7T.
Basically, one of the biggest reasons to get a OnePlus phone over a Pixel is the price, but this year that gap isn't as big as before to justify some of the shortcomings.
