BH is great to deal with, almost no duties just your local sales tax, they show it on checkout.

Thought some people looking for an inexpensive phone would like this deal. Cheers

Good is subjective, but I just retired mine last week, and only because the camera stopped working and the battery was starting to wear out after three years.

Would have been happy to continue using it otherwise. Replaced it with a new Pixel 5a.

Yeah it's still good, much better than the Umidigi and low end Motos at this price point.

I paid $usd 129 last time around. Has been a great device. We use the camera in a Gimbel to shoot wedding video. It paid for itself in 30 minutes.

I've been using the 3a version for 2 years now. Still takes amazing photos, and is fast enough.

My main issues with it are the volume controls. Whatsapp/telegram calls/notifications are tied to media volume, so when I lower media volume, I miss out on those too. When I first got the phone, due to how terribly the software is set up, the morning alarm I set did not happen. I had to tweak some settings to get the alarm to work. Pretty **** stupid.

This phone has made me realize there are too many inconsistencies with Android and not enough polish, so now that iPhone finally has a decent camera, I will be switching to an iPhone 12.

I paid $159 for the Verizon variant. Then got refunded $30 to match the lower price.
However, I have a lemon - 1 bright green dead pixel and crooked back plate. and possible swollen battery (you can feel slight bulge and noise when pressed)

You charge ~$160 CAD per 30 mins to shoot video using a Pixel 3 for your wedding clients?

Some people from the Pixel 2 XL deal from B&H got charged with duty from I think Fedex.
If I buy something that is not in deep discounted, my father will punish me; everyone will laugh at me. I will be the strange kid who doesn't fit in.

Where'd you grab the 5a? Or did you use a forwarder?

Dude, it's a $200 phone.

I have an iPhone 13 on order, but you can buy 5 of these for the same price.

Anyway, 64gb is entirely usable on my wife's iPhone 12 with iCloud.

Really? Surprising, they let you prepay duties, and it's usually one dollar or something like that. I bought an S10 Lite from them last year. No issues.

FYI, there has been a recent surge of Pixel 3s "bricking" with an EDL message. People are still speculating on the source of the issue (update, battery, worn out parts, etc).

I personally have a Pixel 3 since launch without issues. I did replace the battery not long ago though. Fantastic phone otherwise.

Unless you like keeping all old photos and videos on the phone then maybe it's hardly usable, but if you're like most who delete after uploading to Google Photos, you shouldn't have much issue.

DO NOT get a Pixel 3XL. Many have been bricking and it seems to be inevitable. Don't bother. Pixel 5s will be discounted heavily when the 6 comes out, and they're a great phone (I have owned Pixel 2XL, 3XL & 5)

Same here Pixel 3 user and no problems for few years. Same for other family member with 3a XL.
