I ended up getting the Mate 9. Hope it works out.

I think you'll be happy.

Huawei is really coming up... I chose them because I was feeling like Apple and Samsung were getting complacent and weren't truly innovative anymore. I think Huawei was the first one to start working on depth of field simulation for phones. Not sure how the camera compares to Samsung/iPhone 8 - but it outdoes previous models from those makers.

It's a great phone and excellent camera. Here's some of my snapshots with this phone (most are SOOC), and you can click on the link to see them in full resolution and details.

Verizon Black Friday Sale has Google Pixel on sale for $5 per month x 24 months.  Is this a good phone, even though not the newest model?

Unlocked. Great price.
Thanks. Is there much difference compared to the smaller Google Pixel?  Don't want the big size of the XL.  Other than size are the phones essentially the same?? TIA

Yup. One of the nice things about the Pixel is that the specs are the same basically besides for screen and battery size.

The bigger one has better battery life and a better resolution screen

It's not unlocked. It's only via Verizon on payment plan. $5 for month after Verizon bill credit.
