6.3in 2960 x 1,440 P-OLED display
The 6.3in 2960 x 1,440-pixel P-OLED display on the Google Pixel 3 XL is a big upgrade over the screen found on the smaller Pixel 3.
It features an adaptive colour profile that takes current lighting settings into account to deliver a sharper and more natural-looking picture.
The new screen also works quickly and quietly, and is a welcome improvement over the aging screen of the Pixel 2.
While the screen is bigger and offers a better viewing experience, the Pixel 3 XL’s battery is not. At only 3430 mAh, it is slightly smaller than its predecessor.
That said, the Pixel 3 XL has a better camera, a more powerful processor, and better camera sensors than its smaller sibling.
However, the XL is still more expensive than the smaller Pixel 3, and the former is more expensive.
The Pixel 3 XL’s resolution is better than the Pixel 2 XL. However, both of these phones cost around the same amount according to gadgets360.com.
In India, the price of Google Pixel 3 XL starts from INR 21,335 ($267.87), with Amazon being the lowest retailer on 13th July 2022.
On 13th July 2022, the lowest price for Google Pixel 2 XL is INR 17,990 ($225.87) on Amazon. This phone is available in 1 other version with 128GB and colour options like Black & White, Just Black, and White.
The notch on the Pixel 3 XL is bigger than its competitors’ notch. This notch is wide, while the iPhone XS and Huawei P20 Pro have shallow and wide notch designs.
But despite the notch, the Pixel 3 XL still manages to keep a slim profile and a large display. The notch can be hidden when not in use.
A big upgrade on the smartphone is the processor. The processor on the Google Pixel 3 XL has been upgraded to the Qualcomm Snapdragon 845, delivering a 15 to 30% increase in speed.
While this is not a major upgrade, it does improve overall performance. This device has an excellent camera, but it still isn’t as impressive as the Samsung Galaxy Note 9.
Dual front facing cameras
The new Google Pixel 3 XL has two 8MP front facing cameras. One of the cameras is a standard selfie camera, while the other has a wider lens for groupfies.
Google claims that these two cameras can capture 184 percent more selfies than the iPhone XS. The camera also works well in low-light conditions, with excellent video quality in most situations. Ultimately, however, both cameras have their limitations.
Some critics have expressed concern that the dual cameras will make the Pixel 3 XL’s camera capabilities poor, especially when compared to the iPhone X’s single rear camera.
Luckily, there is a solution to this problem. In the near future, the new phone will offer facial recognition functionality and a new feature called ‘Super Selfies.’
And if you have a pixel-perfect face, there’s a good chance that you’ll enjoy the dual front facing camera function as well. The dual camera feature is an improvement over the Pixel 2’s, but you have to consider the tradeoff.
Despite being a great smartphone camera, many users will not see the benefit in these features until they use it.
The front camera on the Pixel 3 XL is capable of taking high-quality selfies, but it’s not quite as powerful as the one on the Galaxy Note 9.
The autofocus on the Pixel 3 is superior to that of the Galaxy Note 9, which is one of its main rivals. The camera is capable of focusing on subjects up to 120cm, which is more than adequate for travel.
The phone also has a good depth of field, which keeps the background in focus.
The camera is incredibly capable, and it has a high-quality f/2.2 aperture. In video mode, the Pixel 3 scores 83 points, with high levels of detail and noise control. In video mode, the Pixel 3 can keep subjects in focus over long distances.
Unfortunately, it is less effective when walking or panning. And it suffers from highlight clipping in high-contrast scenes.
Android 9 Pie
The August 2018 update for the Google Pixel is now available for download. This update brings a range of important performance improvements and bug fixes, as well as a few other changes.
It also brings support for Android 10 Q, which will debut sometime this fall. But how do you install it on your Pixel phone? Read on to find out. Hopefully, Android 9 Pie will make your Pixel phone better than ever.
While the original timeline for Pixel 3 series was three years, Google has extended it for the Pixel 3 XL. The two devices were eligible for Android Q beta, though the company has not confirmed the availability of final Q.
The company has been extending support for these two handsets due to popular demand.
The Pixel 3 XL and Pixel 1 were originally intended to get Android 9.0 Pie, but it was delayed after the XL’s launch because of the infamous Pixel bugs.
The Android Pie update is rolling out to some other devices, including the Galaxy Note 8 and S8 Plus.
Sprint and AT&T have already started rolling out the update, while T-Mobile and Verizon are expected to follow suit soon.
Depending on your carrier, you may have to wait for a few days before your phone receives the update. Hopefully, Samsung will release the update on the Galaxy Note 8 as well.
Samsung is also rolling out a new update for the Galaxy Note 9 with the latest Android Pie. The update includes a December 2018 security patch and bug fixes for Night Mode and Samsung Pass.
Samsung also recently started rolling out the stable version of Android 9 Pie for the Galaxy S9 Plus in Germany. However, this update has not yet been made available for the Mi A2 and Mi Max 3 outside of China.
The update has been delayed a day or two due to various problems. The Nokia CPO said that there are a few bugs to be resolved before the update can go live.
But he also said that the beta version of Android Pie is available for download.
The stable version of the update should be available within the month. It weighs 1.4GB. The Android Pie update will bring the new features that make this phone so much better than the previous versions.
The price of Pixel 3 XL
The Google Pixel is an impressive smart home gadget that can answer questions, play music, and control your home.
You can simply say, “Hey Google,” to control the device. This makes it one of the best smart home gadgets to date.
The price of the Google Pixel 3 XL varies depending on the storage capacity and the carrier that is locked to it.
The smaller version of the device starts at $799 and goes up to $899 for the 128GB unlocked version. It’s a good idea to shop around for the best price before buying a new phone.
A price comparison site like Swappa can help you get the best price. But it’s important to note that the Google Pixel 3 XL will only lose value over time if you don’t get a good deal.
Another alternative to the Google Pixel 3 XL is the OnePlus 6T, which is priced around the same as the Pixel 3 XL.
These two phones use the same processor and barely skinned version of Android Pie. The main difference is the camera.
However, it’s worth noting that the Google Pixel 3 XL has a slightly better camera. Although it has a lower resolution display, it can still deliver beautiful photos, despite its budget.
While the Pixel 3 XL has similar specs to the Pixel 2, the newer device also features a triple camera system and advanced AI software.
The rear lens is more advanced than the Pixel 2, and has an improved sensor that captures greater dynamic range. It also features dual front cameras, but the second wide angle selfie camera adds an additional cost.
The rear camera is capable of zooming in on faraway subjects and is compatible with both nighttime and daytime lighting conditions. The front camera is good for taking important photos and videos.
The Google Pixel 3 XL’s camera is also among the best in the world, thanks to its excellent hardware and user-friendly software.
But, there are some disadvantages, including a high price and limited expandable storage. The Pixel 3 XL is still a great phone, but the Google Pixel 4 XL is an even better buy.
But if you want a low-cost Android phone, the cheaper Pixel 3a XL is an excellent choice.
