Is the Pixel 3 too small of a smartphone?

by John_A

It all depends on who you ask.

Similar to that past two Pixel lineups, this year’s Pixel 3 series consists of both an XL and regular model. You’ll find nearly identical specs across the board, save for a difference in battery capacity and screen size.


The Pixel 3 XL ships with a 6.3-inch display whereas the Pixel 3 has a 5.5-inch one. That’s half an inch larger than the Pixel 2, but even so, there’s some debate around this year’s smaller Pixel about whether or not it’s too small.

Here’s what some of our AC forum members have to say on the subject.

I have small hands and Google Pixel 3 seems very small.
Seems like iphone 5.
Keyboard feels to narrow
And hard to type on keyboard.

It wasn’t all that long ago that a 5.5 size phone was the largest you could buy and was considered huge and unwieldy. 😀

i have been using a larger phone now since the nexus 6 days and actually looking forward using a smaller size phone with the Pixel 3. have you seen the phone in person or basing it from online information? I actually went into a bestbuy earlier this week and am very happy with my decision of going for the smaller Pixel 3. Try to go into a store to see for yourself if you haven’t done so yet.

Im so excited to get my 3 (non-XL), using an iPhone 7+ im so tired of how annoying it is to use single handed and its unnecessarily large size (for me)
