I can't decide between this and a Pixel 2 XL. I like the P20's design and larger battery. It also has 128GB standard. I like the Pixel's (supposedly) better camera and timely updates.

Did anyone else here pick the P20 Pro over the Pixel? What made you decide?

This is my deciding factor that's why I have the P20 pro.

The Pixel 3 is $400 more than the 2 right now at my provider (Videotron). The only real advantage it has over the 2 is a better screen.

The reason I'm looking at year-old phones in the first place is because they a considerably cheaper than newer ones while giving up little in performance.

Besides, I think I'd be in the same situation deciding between the Pixel 3 and the Mate 20 Pro.

The screen is quite a huge jump though. The screen is just very poor on the 2xl. But I understand the price perspective.

Good point. Today's phones are so fragile that a case is a necessity. So, once the initial unboxing is over, a phone's design quality becomes irrelevant IMHO.

I ordered the P20 Pro at Videotron today. The screen on the Pixel 2XL was what made me go for the P20.
