For $200 difference

Pixel 3 you get faster processor. wireless charging, HDR support, wide angle selfie camera, two front facing speakers, the Pixel 3a does have two speakers but the bottom one is bottom firing, water resistance rating, and pixel Visual Core, unlimited back up of original quality photos and the phone is a little bit smaller.

Pixel 3a you get earphone jack.

This is definitely not a bad deal, been needing a phone for a while.

Was gonna see what OP7/OP7Pro had to offer but the $150 credit ends before the 14th.... hm..

You can get a pixel 3 on kijiji for 600 brand new or cheaper through koodo.

I have the OG Pixel XL which has this.. however the pictures/video were all under 16MP (12.3MP) and 1080p resolution which fits the bill for unlimited high quality anyway. I don't really see having it as a benefit to me since the hardware can't go higher.

According to this article, Google compresses photos in the High Quality setting

Tempting, but I think if Google brings back headphone jack for Pixel 4, I'll grab that instead.

Why google can't seem to make no edge display?

it is original quality on the news and advertised as it is, but in the pixel devicesit says it's high quality. Looks like false ads

They won't, they gave an explanation why the 3a has it, something to do with demographics and don't expect it on future phones.

Most likely it's a one off and even the 4a won't have it

Original quality for the regular Pixel line. This is a budget phone so it's only high quality. Still better than what most other companies offer.
