The Pixel 3 XL experiment

Here’s a lesson for you: never, ever ask your Twitter followers whether or not you should use a particular kind of hardware or software. Ever more so, never allow them a Twitter poll vote on whether you should do something or not.

Last week, I did this:

Don’t do this. Ever.

For the next week, starting from today, I’ll be forsaking my beloved iPhone XS Max in favour of the Pixel 3 XL. Perhaps more painfully, I’ll also be putting my Apple Watch on to charge and leaving it there, with a Fossil Sport WearOS smartwatch taking its place.
Next Sunday, I’ll write up what I think about it. I’m trying to keep an open mind, and I know that there are some aspects of the Pixel that I like already (the camera).

This is all your fault, Twitter followers.
