    I'm on my second Google phone (Pixel XL) and it's been awesome, but the P30 pro really appeals to me.
    Any suggestions?

    Pixel 3, I had a P30pro as a work phone. Went through 2 screens in 2 months and I am NOT an abusive phone person... Very beautiful screen on them, but damn is it a fragile phone.

    My phones are always in an Otterbox, so if they make one for the P30 pro so hopefully if I go that route I'll be fine.

    Work gave me the choice between a Samsung Galaxy 10+ or a Pixel 3 XL ... I went Pixel 3 XL .. can't beat the Pixels as far as Android goes imo

    Pixels are made in Taiwan. So it's Traditional vs Simplified.

    You may even lose Android on the P30 with all the Huawei crazyness going on

    I was looking at the 3a xl but the non expandable memory and 4gb of ram was a sticking point. Ended up getting an a70. I use a third party camera app and when you take away all of the low light noise reduction and processing that the stock app has the camera is quite good.

    That's my biggest fear of the P30.

    I wouldn't touch a Huawei device in North America. Shady dealings and I wouldn't be surprised if they're outright banned at some point.
