The problems begin with the back, where Google has used glass with a matte finish.
Sincerely, the screen is so much better. You just gotta look past that notch.
If you own a Google Pixel 3 or 3 XL and have noticed any photos not getting saved to your gallery, it's not just you.
The camera quality is pretty excellent.
Now when taking pictures at night, the device will request that you hold the phone still for a few seconds then view the result. So you don't have an image with some people smiling and others not. Also, you can take selfies with Iron man. Since the launch of these phones there have been some problems related to some of their functions, and if you bought one of them, you could be experiencing one of these annoying situations as well. Long-pressing on the screen now takes you directly to the Google Lens. The Pixel 3 XL has an edge-to-edge screen, with the exception of a notch on the top.
Another significant improvement over 2017's Pixel 2 XL is the screen. It's most intense when you play music at high volume, but the vibrations can still be felt at low volumes as well as during spoken dialog.
Nowadays, specs aren't everything. Turns out there's more to it than that, though: Google also said that it's certifying chargers for the new flagship via the "Made for Google" program.
The new Home Hub looks a lot like the Smart Display devices from Google partners Lenovo and JBL.
Google has announced that it will be releasing a software update to fix the photo saving issue happening in several smartphones. The Pixel 3's rear camera is 12.2 MP. Although the megapixel is the same, the camera unit isn't. Well, it's hard to believe the covers were shot with a camera phone.
Qi is capped at 5W, and for 10W wireless charging, you need a charger with what Belkin calls "Google's 10W proprietary wireless charging technology". On the Pixel Stand, though, they ramp up to 10W and the phone shows a "rapid charging" as that happens.
More LTE bands. The Pixel 3 supports band 71 and band LTE, which gives it total support for T-Mobile's 600MHz spectrum. This makes it a few steps beyond Pixel 2. The Pixel 3 also supports both fast and wireless charging. Using this case is very easily scratched. Like we see every year, those who buy the 3 or 3 XL at this retailer will get a free $100 Best Buy gift card. Just like how Samsung's Camera app is better on a Samsung smartphone, rather than an LG or Motorola device. This even hurts more since there's no microSD support. This is quite baffling since there is no third tier with more space and RAM. The battery is a mere 2915 mAh (Pixel 3) and 3430 mAh (XL).
Pixel 2 XL now starts at £599 for the 64GB variant but is now £699 for the 128GB. Does it justify their inflated price? Thing is, you'd be missing out on a really, really, really good phone.
