Top critical review
10 June 2019
Bought this item from the seller ELECTRO-SOLUTIONS. It was stated that in fact this was a brand new phone which it was not. The box wasn't sealed properly and the phone as well did not have protective plastic sticked onto it. Instead of that it had a screen protector already put on. Don't know, maybe someone used it for a review and then decided to sell it. Hope this is not a fake, as much as I have used it, it doesn't look, feel or work as one so I think it's authentic Google Pixel 3. Moving on to other things. The charger that came with the phone was EU and not UK as needed. Instead of getting an authentic Google UK charger plug they threw a second charger plug, this time fit for the UK socket, but instead of Google - Huawei. Since the phone doesn't have an MP3 slot, there was an TypeC to MP3 thingy in the box as well. But after using it for a week it broke and did not work. So it also wasn't authentic, either another Huawei part or even worse - a cheap Chinese alternative since it felt like that. I took away 2 stars just because of these things that were only the fault of the seller.
The phone itself is a joy. I'm in love with my Google Pixel 3. The design and the simplicity and efficiency of the operating system are to die for. I'm not even talking about the camera which was my main motive to buy this phone specifically. It has the best camera that I have ever used on a phone, keeping in mind that previously I had the Samsung S9. Very pleased with the phone itself, although noticed some bugs, but that might be because of the seller as well, since I don't know how old this phone is and how much it has been used before.
