So the Pixel 3 XL has been through a lot. Bugs, issues, quirks, it just can't seem to catch a break. How exactly has it faired over the past 5 months? It's been good for most of us, but it's been rough for other users. My 3 XL still runs well, some hitches here 'n there but nothing to write home about. Battery life is still solid, performance is where it should be. Unfortunately, some, including Marques Brownlee, Kellen from Droid Life, and even our own Artem and David had been having serious issues with their 3 XL's performance. The latest March update seemed to do the trick for some experiencing the same issues, but sadly enough, it looks like some users are still dealing with the issues. While these problems are pretty isolated and don't affect the majority of owners, these problems are still a thing and they make me hesitant to recommend consumers pick one up. Here's to hoping Android Q can give the 3 XL a great second half of its life before the Pixel 4 gets announced.
