DisplayMate Says Google Pixel 3 XL Has Achieved Its “Highest A+ Rating”

7 days ago   |   By Android Headlines

In short: DisplayMate has not yet released its full, in-depth review article for the Google Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL. But DisplayMate has said in a tweet today that the OLED Panel on the Google Pixel 3 XL has achieved the “highest A+ Rating” it has ever given for a smartphone. Which is pretty impressive, and that means that it has beaten the Samsung Galaxy Note 9. That is no small feat, though we also are not sure if this is an LG or Samsung OLED panel right now, and if it is an LG panel than that makes this even more impressive.

Google Pixel USB-C earbuds go official with Google Assistant support

Google Pixel USB-C earbuds go official with Google Assistant support

7 days ago   |   By Phone Arena

Just as expected, the Google Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL ship with a new set of earbuds in the box. These resemble last year's Google Pixel Buds quite closely by adopting a design that makes use of AirPods-like in-ear tips and a small exterior portion that embraces the Google “G.”
The key difference over the original Pixel Buds, though, comes with their method of connectivity. While last year's earbuds were connected together by a short cable and could pair to smartphones via Bluetooth, this new offering attaches to a much longer cable which boasts a USB Type-C connector on the end, hence the ...

Google reveals the Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL

7 days ago   |   By Beta News

There have been so many leaks surrounding Google's latest Pixel phones that today's announcements felt like little more than a formality. Nevertheless, the Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL are now official. Taking design inspiration from numerous other handset manufacturers, the new Pixels move away from previous models and have a glass construction. The 5.5-inch Pixel 3 does not feature a notch, but the 6.3-inch XL model does; both handsets feature a Snapdragon 845 SoC, 4GB of RAM, and 64 or 128GB of storage - and, of course, Android Pie.

Google suggests the Pixel 3 is better than iPhone XS at taking photos

7 days ago   |   By Phone Arena

While announcing the Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL today, Google fired a couple of shots at Apple, suggesting that its brand new phones are better than the iPhone XS series - at least at taking photos.
Google presents the Pixel 3 and 3 XL as having the "world's best phone camera" that's "ahead of the curve." The two phones feature a similar 12 MP rear camera aided by a Pixel Visual Core custom-designed imaging chipset. We haven't got the chance to thoroughly test this new camera yet, but Google is definitely proud of it. One of the new features that the Pixel 3 series ...

7 days ago   |   By Phone Arena

The Google Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL are the first members of the lineup to support wireless charging. Placing them on any Qi-certified wireless charger will magically make those battery juices flow, sparing you from the need to deal with wires and adapters. Google, however, has something that's even better.

Google Pixel 3 vs Galaxy S9 vs iPhone XS: Specs comparison

Google Pixel 3 vs Galaxy S9 vs iPhone XS: Specs comparison

7 days ago   |   By Phone Arena

The Google Pixel 3 shapes up to be the phone for those uninspired by the excessive notch of the Pixel 3 XL - it has a traditional notchless design, more compact and easier to use body, and all the same hardware that can be found inside the larger Pixel 3 XL.
But is this enough to make the Pixel 3 a more appealing than the Galaxy S9 or the iPhone XS? Most likely no, but this doesn't mean the Pixel 3 won't directly compete with the smallest Galaxy and iPhone on the shelves as Google eyes a more prominent mainstream presence.
This means that ...

7 days ago   |   By Phone Arena

With the Pixel 3 XL, Google is certainly betting big on becoming a mainstream smartphone maker, which it kind of failed with the previous generations of its smartphone lineup due to certain supply and availability issues that plagued it. Hopefully, the Pixel 3 XL won't be subjected to the same set of problems.
Anyhoo, now that the Pixel 3 XL with its eye-sore notch is official, a slew of specs comparison are in queue to mercilessly stack it up against some of the very best phones out there, and chief among these are the Samsung Galaxy Note 9 and the iPhone XS Max. ...

7 days ago   |   By Phone Arena

Although it's been leaking around like a broken jug for months now, the third generation of Google's Pixel devices became officially-official just a while ago.
Now, from a purely design perspective, Google hasn't really went all overboard with its new Pixels. The regular Pixel 3 hasn't jumped on the bezel-less train that seemingly everyone is riding already and has a more traditional design, whereas the Pixel 3 XL employs a more modern aesthetic that quickly riled up lots of controversy due to the excessively deep notch at the front.
Surely, ...

After months of endless leaks, the Google Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL are finally official.
The phones mostly retain that signature Pixel look with a two-tone back and stubbornly feature a single rear camera , but this time around they come with the latest Android 9 Pie on board, a faster chip, a few clever customizations, support for wireless charging and with ambitions to come back as the smartphone camera king.
Google has also addressed one of the biggest issues with the last year's 2 XL: the screen, which does not have all the blue-tint ...

8 days ago   |   By Android Headlines

Google on Tuesday finally announced the Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL, its latest Android flagships which have been leaking all over the Internet for months now. Those countless premature sightings were largely accurate so while nothing unveiled at today's event in Paris was truly unforeseen, Google still had a number of small surprises up its sleeve. While a single look at them doesn't really suggest these handsets are so similar, they're much more alike than they appear at first and choosing one over the other will be more of a matter of taste than technical demands and smartphone...

Google Pixel 3 and 3 XL prices, release date and carrier availability

Google Pixel 3 and 3 XL prices, release date and carrier availability

8 days ago   |   By Phone Arena

Google's next generation of Pixel phones is finally here, after weeks of heavy leaking, and the Pixel 3 and 3 XL are up for any task you throw at them, judging by the prices Google is charging for the handsets.
One would think that the 6.5" display means that the 3 XL is the largest Pixel ever, but with a proud notch at the front, it is actually the size of the 2 XL, and even a tad more compact thanks to the narrower side bezels. If you want something more manageable in the hand, though, you'd have to splurge for the smaller, Pixel 3 sibling. How much? Well, here's the ...
