>>In fact, it makes the Pixel 3's rear-mounted fingerprint sensor feel antiquated.<< Really? from the picture it looks like it takes 2 hands to activate the sensor. Not so with Google's wonderful rear fingerprint sensor. Also, you can't have the cute little notch with dual front-facing cameras and front-facing stereo speakers. I would opt fro more function. The lack of wireless battery charging should tilt the battery category toward the Google 3, since they are close otherwise. In real-world use, is there any discernible difference in performance between the 2 phones, regardless of how much RAM they have? In several categories that difference is price is considered, even though there is a separate category for Value and Availability. For me the camera is the most valuable feature in the phone, and the price difference is well justified based on the camera capabilities of the Google 3.
