Google Pixel 3 and 3 XL Review: The Best Camera Gets an Even Better Phone
Google Pixel 3 has just announced its latest flagship smartphones, the Pixel 3 and 3 XL, and they’re bringing all of the features you’d expect from a top-of-the-line Android device in 2018. Better still, they’ve given the Pixel 3 some significant upgrades to its camera system, which makes it — according to DxOMark — the best mobile camera on the market right now. So how are they? Well, here’s what you need to know about Google’s latest phones, including how they stack up against the competition, their unique software tricks, and more!
The Google Pixel 3 and 3 XL have great battery life. They made small, but important improvements over their predecessors. The Pixel 3 has 2915mAh, while the XL has 3430mAh. For reference, the Galaxy S10+ has 3700mAh. You will get an all-day battery with heavy use or a day and a half on lighter use with both phones!
We like that there is now Qi Wireless Charging for some devices, which means you can charge your phone from just about anywhere with a Qi Wireless Charging mat available in many retail locations. The XL offers more than a full day of battery at 35 hours before needing to recharge it and the Pixel 3 lasts for 27 hours before needing to recharge again.
If you don’t have time to charge during your day, both phones are also optimized for quick charging. With a 15-minute charge, it will give you 7 hours of battery life which should get you through to a normal charge time. It would be nice to have USB-C Power Delivery here, but at least Qi Wireless is ChargingQi Wireless Charging too!
These phones don’t last as long as their predecessors though due to heavy use when tested on Trusted Reviews. They last 12 hours and 10 hours respectively before needing to recharge again. This compares badly against their predecessors – 15 hours for the Pixel 2, 16 hours for the Google Pixel 2 XL – so despite improvements with new chipsets we weren’t impressed with battery life in our tests.
Software (Android 9)
The software-based updates that Google has implemented in the Pixel 3 and 3 XL make them significantly more stable and enjoyable to use. They are the first non-Google manufactured phones to come with Android 9, or Pie, which is a major update from previous versions of Android.
I haven’t had any issues with apps crashing or loading up slowly since updating to Pie, which is refreshing for a person who likes to download new apps every day. It also has an increased functionality for app sharing, Google Pixel 3 enhanced security features like facial recognition, smart storage management, and adaptive brightness technology–whatever your budget is there’s something for everyone here.
Speed & Performance
The Google Pixel 3 and 3 XL boast several top-of-the-line specs, including an updated Snapdragon 845 chip and new video stabilization. The phones also have better RAM management, which means that navigating the phone’s often full home screen will be much smoother. The Pixel 3 has an upgraded 12MP rear camera while the Pixel 3 XL has a dual-lens 12MP/8MPGoogle Pixel 3 system on its back.
This new camera is terrific and captures more color detail than ever before, as well as sharp and clear shots even in low-light situations. When shooting in Pro mode, it offers more flexibility for adjusting parameters such as ISO and shutter speed without having to deal with third-party apps.
Google has been innovating with the Pixel 3 and 3 XL and getting better each time. I’m not a heavy phone user, but the Google Pixel 3XL has made me love my phone even more, for all its simplicity. It may be expensive, but as an avid photographer with a new interest in videography, it’s well worth the investment!
If you’re looking for a great everyday smartphone that you can use to be creative with, then get your hands on a Google Pixel 3 or Google Pixel 3XL. It offers an excellent overall experience,
especially if you’re used to using Android or are a photographer or videographer who wants to have fun with their new mobile photography toy. You can also expect regular software updates from Google as well as timely security patches and patches to solve bugs when they do come up. That makes it one of my favorite phones in 2018 – if not ever!
