Why am I so tempted by this? Hmmm. I do worry about the battery. Years old just sitting there with no activity.

If it's been sitting unused and completely drained, considered the battery damaged.

Thanks for the info! Just too much a risk for me because of that. I wonder where they found these? Years old and brand new. Strange.

Comes with one year manufacturer (Google) warranty according to the Q&A. Should be plenty of time to detect a faulty battery and have it replaced.

P3XL was a great phone 2 years ago. Now it is kinda old. I recently upgraded or moved to Samsung S20 5G. It is a lot faster than P3XL. However, P3XL still has better fingerprint scanner, wider screen and nicer Google OS. I don't know why Samsung wants to mess with Google's operating system. It is much better than what Samsung can do. Very stupid. If Samsung can widen the screen of S20 5G a bit and use a physical fingerprint scanner and please save itself some money to use Google's OS, it would be a perfect phone.

Stop closing apps all the time like that. It actually uses more battery. The reason is that when you kill the app all you're doing is making the phone do work to close out the program and then do more work the next time you open it because it has to load from storage into RAM again and do all the initial app start-up stuff like connect to a service over the internet.

Apps should only be closed in rare cases where the app is really bad and not using android's API's well because its using battery in the background, which is to say sketchy apps that are probably spying on you.

I think a lot of people would want that (miss the Nexus days), flagship Samsung hardware with pure Android but Samsung has had way too much success doing their own thing to change it. Significantly more success than Google in fact. Atleast they compromised a little bit, and said they would stop developing extra things like Bixby and just use Google's stuff for obvious reasons.

Quote from EagerApple743 :
Review As everyone has stated before, the battery life is awful. As soon as I take it off charge, it goes from 100% to 99%, then minutes later, it'll already hit 95% and nothing's running. I make sure to close out my apps and as tiring as it can be, I "stop" each app because one thing I don't miss about Android phones is the fact that closing out an app doesn't necessarily close it. It continues to run which will also play into your battery percentage running down. I thought after being 5 years away, they would correct that issue.

Next, let's talk about the phone freezing. Almost every time I unpause an app, my phone becomes useless and freeze up. Literally the only thing I can do is click on the power button, but when I come back, it's still frozen. Therefore, I'd have to restart it. And when I restart it, it takes multiple attempts to read and accept my WiFi. It's very frustrating especially being at home during this pandemic where I don't have to rely on my mobile data.

As I've mentioned in "The Good", Messaging has its flaws. First of all, the keyboard is small, therefore your text messages will consist of a lot of typos. It's so bad that even Autocorrect decided to take a vacation. It is very slow. Whenever I try to use an emoji, more often than not it would take me to the GIF section. This is the most frustrating of all; you're stuck until more than one GIF loads. You literally can't do anything in the message box until. I had to close out the app multiple times just to be able to return to my keyboard.

Google Photos, Drive, and even Files are all messed up because when you know you've transferred a file there be it computer or phone, it'll either take hours to show up or you'll have to do it again. Then later on, it'll appear as double. Even worse is trying to download sometimes. It would either not do it and without explanation, or it will give you this message saying "Unable to download right now, please try again in a few minutes." Those few minutes will eventually turn into 5 hours. By then, I don't want to download it anymore because I've found another method to transfer my files. I could go on and on, but it'll be like beating a dead

If you just want it for basic needs such as making calls and checking your Google or bank account, you're all good. Social Media apps run just like on any other phone. But beyond the beautiful exterior and colorful screen and apps, lies a very broken phone. It's not a matter of IF I'll trade it back, it's a matter of WHEN.
Really my battery was phenomenal on this I didn't use the phone that often however are used to have at least 2 to 3 days
