Samsung Doubles Down On Notch Hate With Google Pixel 3 Mockery

4 monthes ago   |   By Android Headlines

In short: Samsung Mobile is doubling down on its stance that notches are hideous and deserve all the hate that a vocal portion of the tech enthusiast community has been giving them since those cutouts started being commercialized late last year. In response to this week's launch of Google's Pixel 3 XL, Samsung's marketing team took to Twitter to mock Alphabet's subsidiary and its latest Android flagship, proclaiming that “you could land a plane on it.” The comment was made in reference to the smartphone's notch that's the largest such cutout on the market, not accounting for the new...

Poll results: the Pixel 3 XL notch is an eyesore

4 monthes ago   |   By Phone Arena

So, the Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL are out and they are pretty much exactly what the leaks kept showing us for months prior. This includes that notch on the Pixel 3 XL, which many were hoping is not real... there was even a rumor that Google is hiding a special Pixel 3 Ultra up its sleeve - a phone with a huge display and no notch or chin to speak of.
Nope...
There is a huge group of people out there that absolutely hate the cutout on the Pixel 3 XL. But we wondered: is it a vocal minority, or is it true that most people hate it? So, we ran a poll.
Will the results shock you?

All new Pixel 3 features that are coming to the Pixel 2, and a few that are not

4 monthes ago   |   By Phone Arena

The Pixel 2 started at $649, and, tellingly enough, kept the same price even after the Pixel 3 and 3 XL announcement. Why is that? Well, the new phone starts off at $799, that's why, so its predecessor now looks like a relative bargain.
What will you gain if you get the new Pixel 3 instead of the Pixel 2, and is it worth the extra $150? It depends whether you are buying a new one, or already have a Pixel 2 or 2 XL, then the equation changes dramatically.
This is why we made a list of all the new Pixel 3 and 3 XL ...

Despite Bland Appearance, Google's Pixel 3 Camera Makes It Worth A Second Look

4 monthes ago   |   By Inquisitr

Some have accused Google of phoning it in when it comes to the industrial design of their first-party products. This has been especially true for the Pixel smartphone line. Each Pixel has looked like a cross between the iPhone and the phones of whatever OEM that produced it.
This year is no exception. The most recognizable feature of the Pixel 3 is a prominent notch at the top of the phone that houses two selfie cameras. It is reminiscent of the iPhone X-style notch that was introduced last year to much negativity by the tech press. Since then, it is surprising to see a new smartphone...

If you're not following the official Twitter account of Samsung Mobile's US branch, you may want to start doing that and check the replies for some scathing remarks about the competition.
Of course, this is a company that's been getting attention for years with publicity stunts deriding Apple for various divisive design decisions and a general lack of innovation, so it's hardly surprising to see it throw jabs at Google in the wake of the Pixel 3 and 3 XL announcement.
If anything, we're surprised Samsung wasn't more vocal about its animosity towards the universally scorned ...
