What’s your take on the Pixel 3 XL conspiracy theories?

All of these rumors will finally be laid to rest in less than a month.

Ever since the Pixel 3 XL leaks started to surface earlier this year, there’s been an unavoidable narrative surrounding them that’s caused a lot of folks to get stirred up.

On the first part, what possible reason would you have to want negative reviews for a promo regarding a product you’re debuting. That makes zero sense to me. Unless it’s internal and they’re going to make the design team watch it on a…

I honestly think Google reckon they’re just like Apple and that they can produce a device that everyone hates the look of at first but will grow to love and think the opposite shortly after. They have that same arrogance but they’ll never pull it off like Apple do..

I’m secretly hoping they’ve bluffed everyone and have a notch less phone waiting in the wings but let’s be honest…. It’s Google
