The most awaited Google Pixel 3 has been finally revealed and is promising to give you the best smartphone camera in 2018 – or at least that’s the bold title Google intends to claim thanks to its machine-learning camera smarts.The device currently launched with three color options , with names like Clearly White, Just Black, and the pinkish ‘Not Pink.’
A typical Google Device
Like any other google pixel devices, this also comes out of the box with the latest version of Android, Android Pie. Without any blot-wares this gives the users a vanilla android experience, thanks to stock ROM with google customization. When we say typical google device, we mean it in all the aspects, like every Pixel device Google Pixel 3 also ensures best camera performance. Thanks to the Machine-Learning Camera.
The ratio’s of Google Pixel 3 is pretty fine, it has a big, color-rich OLED screen, yet one-hand-friendly dimensions and a fairly reasonable price. This makes it the perfect size for most people looking for a new Android phone without stretching their grip or their wallet. The icing in the cake is surely the rear-facing 12.2MP camera and two front-facing 8MP cameras, while the one is optimized for wide-angle selfies, enabling you to get an entire group shot. To this day the Google Pixel 2 camera still amazes us, and the Pixel 3 building off of that success gives us high hopes for our forthcoming camera tests.
The Google Pixel 3 design follows the same like the pixel lineup phones with two-tone design – the back has shiny glass at the top, while lower 80% has a matte finish. But this series of new phone uses a different material, and the entire back is made of soft-touch glass using Corning Gorilla Glass 5.The all-glass design makes the Pixel 3 more susceptible to damage, but on the other side it also enables a better LTE connection and wireless charging. The Google Pixel 3 has more rounded edges everywhere on the Pixel 3 and maintains a less boxy pattern than previous Google phones, a trend we’ve seen from the iPhone and and others.
Unfortunately, there’s no dedicated headphone jack on this smartphone (just like last year) and you won’t find a microSD card slot anywhere. The on-board 64GB and 128GB storage configurations are the only reliable thing. There is a SIM card tray slot, interestingly at the bottom of the device right next to the USB-C port.
Display and Screen
The phone houses a 5.5-inch OLED screen with the dimension of 145.6 x 68.2 x 7.9mm and weighs 148g. The bezels are pretty noticeable and thanks to the 18:9 aspect ratio rather than the dated 16:9 look. The 5.5 inch OLED screen provides a 1080 x 2160 pixels resolution with 18:9 ratio and 443 PPI density.
Processor and OS
Under the hood is a massive Octa-core (4×2.5 GHz Kryo 385 Gold & 4×1.6 GHz Kryo 385 Silver) Qualcomm SDM845 Snapdragon 845 (10 nm) processor with 4GB of RAM with 64/128GB memory options. The phone also houses the Adreno 650 GPU for Graphics boost with Android 9 (Pie) out of the box. Hardly, there is no memory card slot on offer.
The main aspect of buying a Google Pixel phone would be either Camera or OS , rather both. The Google Pixel 3 also uses a Visual Core dedicated chip that helps give the camera that wow factor. The 12.2Mp camera with the machine-learning capabilities will shot the best photo to avoid blurriness and closed eyes called Top Shot.At the launch event, Google demonstrated how it can even beat the iPhone XS at low-light photos.It’ll shoot with larger 1.4 micron pixels and has optical and electronic image stabilization. Video records in 4K at a max of 30fps. Taking about the selfie camera, we can name it as a groupfie camera because the two 8MP cameras provide a normal 75 degree field of view or a 97 degree field of view. The apertures do differ here: f/2.2 for the wide-angle lens and f/1.8 for the normal selfie lens.
Google introduced Wireless charging as a new feature for the Pixel phones and also a docking wireless stand accessory alongside theses devices.The Pixel 3 has a 2,915mAh battery, which is slightly smaller, but it’s still an improvement over last year’s 5-inch Pixel, which a 2,700mAh unit. Google’s Android 9 Pie software should give it more juice too under software optimizations. Users will be still be able to get all-day battery life from this device with normal use, and you will certainly benefit from fast 18W and new wireless charging.
