3A XL - too big for pocket?

    Went to my local phone place today and found a not so helpful sales person (after waiting 30 minutes). I went in expecting to walk out with a new Pixel 3A ($10 a month)...but since she wasn't any help I walked out with more questions than answers.

    1st she wasn't very keen on the Google phones saying if I were going Android I should only consider Samsung phones. I currently have a S7 Edge that's been great since it came out until the camera stopped working about 10 days ago.

    Since she was pushing the Samsungs I asked her what the difference was between the Samsung phones: A50 ($14.50 a month), A10e ($7.50 a month), and A20 ($10 a month). She said there really wasn't any difference between the three. Really? One phone is twice as much as the other but there is no difference? Weird.

    After reading more and more reviews I'm still convinced the Pixel 3A is superior to all of those!

    My question is: is the 3A XL too large for the front pocket of a pair of Docker style pants once a case is put on the phone? (trying to decide between the 3A and the 3A XL)

    Thanks for any help and guidance!!!

    well i own the note 10+ with an otterbox defender and it fits perfectly in my jeans with no issues. these are the loose fit kind of jeans. the note 10+ is a few mm bigger than the pixel 3a xl......so i think you should be good to go with your dockers.

    No idea what "Docker style pants" are, but the XL has a 6inch screen. I've got a largish 6in screen phone myself, Huawei Mate 10, and I find that it fits in my jeans front pockets no problems.

    Thanks for your replies!

    I think I'm leaning toward the smaller 3a. It's basically the same exact size as the S7 Edge I have now, which seems to be a nice size since I can reach all areas of the screen with one hand. And after I add an Otterbox Defender case I'm afraid the 3a XL would definitely be too large to fit in my Docker style pants and blue jeans. https://www.kohls.com/product/prd-2...-fit-flat-front-pants.jsp?color=Cloud&prdPV=1

    Again, I appreciate the help!
