GadgetFrame 11 Oct, 2018

Discover a better way to capture, store, and see the world. The latest Google flagship phones "Pixel 3 and 3XL" has been launched with bigger screens and wide-angle selfie camera. These are the ones you wish your phone to be. Let's see what these flagship features.

Design:


Having 5.5-inch Pixel 3 and 6.3-inch Pixel 3 XL These are sleek, almost slippery devices with rounded edges and thoughtfully curved elements, like the slightly tacky clear panel on the back. The Pixel 3 and 3 XL are undoubtedly Google's most refined Pixel phones yet. But Pixel 3 looks similar to Pixel 2Xl while Pixel 3Xl sports a wide notch bigger than any other device we have seen.

The OLED screen has a 1,080 x 2,160-resolution on the standard model Pixel 3, and 1,440 x 2,960 resolution Pixel 3 XL, measuring 5.5 inches and 6.3 inches, respectively. While Pixel 2 XL had a problem from a “blue shift” issue on its LG-made OLED screen, the screen on the new P-OLED Pixel 3 XL seems to be improved. Pixel 3 and Pixel 3XL features Gorilla Glass 5 on both front and back.

Performance:


Google’s Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL powers a Qualcomm Snapdragon 845, 4GB of RAM, and 64 or 128GB of storage with no microSD card expansion. This seems quite unfair comparing with other flagship devices as they are offering 512 GB and 8 GB of RAM. This seems Google is quite confident about the optimization of its devices.

Camera:

The front cameras on both Pixel 3 and 3XL are dual 8MP shooters. One is a f/2.2 fixed-focus snapper with a 97-degree field of view and the other a f/1.8 shooter with a regular 75-degree FoV and autofocus. The main selfie shooter is a big improvement over the Pixel 2’s 8MP f/2.4. In terms of rear camera, There’s a 12.2MP 1/2.55” camera with a f/1.8 lens, large 1.4µm pixels, dual pixel phase detection autofocus, and both optical and electronic stabilization. Pixel 2 was the best camera around already so in camera part, Google phones are the perfect one.

Battery:


The standard Pixel 3 includes a 2,915mAh battery, while the larger Pixel 3 XL sports a 3,430mAh cell. Neither of these capacities is the highest we’ve seen in a smartphone and we just saw the LG V40 struggle with its 3,300mAh battery on a 6.4-inch display. Both have USB type-C which is the positive factor. Again, software optimization can always help smaller batteries perform quite a bit better.

Price:


The Pixel 3 is €850 for the 64GB model and €950 for the 128GB one. The Pixel 3 XL is €950 and €1,050 respectively.
