    Wow, Pixel 4 and 4 XL has been discontinued.
    It's standard practice to stop making previous-gen phones when the next one is imminent and possibly even in production already. Looks like they sold through most if not all of their inventory already though, which is a good thing for Google. When you see old phones still kicking around at end of life or after a next-gen release, they usually aren't new builds but rather old inventory that didn't sell.

    Yes this. Do people go to car dealerships hoping to buy new cars from three model years ago?

    Public Mobile is the best, just like Phil Collins haggard face.

    Good way to look at, but buying a car for $30,000 and it being $25,000 off the lot is a big difference in funds.

    I'm not that baller to be throwing 5k out the window like that.

    But I think rather then spending $1,700 on a phone vs $1,000 and never planning to sell it (I except to lose it or break it tbh) is a $700 saved amount...

    I don't want a cheap flip phone even though that is prob what I should do.

    Google is still selling the 3a from their website, but not the 3a not sure why not the 3

    Everyone told me before the 3 is incredible...

    I guess the 3a came out almost a year later, would make sense...

    I've had the OnePlus 1, 2, 5, and now 8. Go for the 8.

    Had the oneplus 5 and now 7T. Could have went 8, couldn't justify the cost ($1100cdn starting? Vs $669 for the 7T).

    Still regularily use the 5 as I haven't had time to switch everything over to the 7T..I personally can not tell/be able to imagine what the 8 (or Samsung/Google Pixel) equivalents could provide that would justify the cost. Except for one thing, the camera, if that matters to you. Then absolutely go higher end.

    There is apparently still third party/carrier stock left (just not at the official google store), so given the early 4a release, imminent 4a5G and 5 release, and COVID related production capacity reductions affecting the entire industry, they probably just made the decision to cut it off. It's a bit of a weird year for everyone in that sense. The new 3a's you can still buy are old stock too, they aren't new builds.

    Im also using a 7T. Went from a OP3. Wicked phone. The camera isn't as nice as my girlfriends Pixel, but it still gets the job done. The rest of the phone is top notch.

    I went from OP5 to Samsung S10. End of the day, if you are not demanding user, there isn't really that much difference other than the camera department.

    OP5 was fine for me until it went to Android 10. Then I start to see a few issues with some apps but I believe that's where they stop from OS update perspective.

    Any deals on a Galaxy S10 around right now? I see it's $839 directly from Samsung.

    A71 looks nice for a midranger, but the wife doesn't want anything larger than the S10 so my options are pretty limited.

    I just upgraded to the s10 this week. I was strongly considering saving a few bucks and going with the A71 until I found out it isn't waterproof. Its an impressive midrange performer.

    But I do like the S10. It's a great phone. I just badly need a case since my relatively big hands can't hold it without touching the stupid screen edges.

    That's problem curve edges phones, regardless of size.

    Looks good but accidental touches sux.

    It's still under warranty through google, just exchange it. Sounds like you got a dud.
