The Pixel phones have barely made a dent in the market since their debut two years ago, but Google is hoping to change that with the latest models unveiled on Tuesday at an event in NY. Though this has taken away a little from the sheen of the Pixel XL 3, the dual front 8MP cameras along with the single 12.2-megapixel camera at the back ensure that the Google delivers the best and most powerful camera to smartphones once again. Where does it lag behind? Either way, Google has ensured that the old Pixel phones will also get new features. Let's break it all down. The Pixel 3 starts at £739 and the Pixel 3 XL costs at least £869, both depending on whether you choose 64GB or 128GB of storage, but even the most capacious XL is more affordable than the cheapest iPhone XS.
Remember, Google doesn't make a lot of money off hardware, and it doesn't really make money from Android. It leverages Google'sDuplex software, which gives its AI voice a naturalistic quality (complete with "uhms" and other human characteristic) that has duped call center workers in the past.
Here is how the respective Apple and Google flagships compare. It's a small, premium-feeling phone for $799 - that's not a bad combination. The voice command "help me interpret." then a language is enough to launch the Google Translate interface on the phone, with audio routed through the headphones and the phone speaker as you try and keep up a conversation.
The Pixel 3 features a 5.5-inch screen display with 2160x 1080 pixel resolutions. Even better is that update will be coming to the camera apps on the Pixel 2 and original Pixel as well. The Pixel 3 pushes its camera forward, but with the exception of an additional wide-angle selfie camera (a very clever idea!), most of Google's photographic advances are on the software side.
Portrait mode has been improved so you can edit the depth of field after the fact (like you can in the iPhone XS), but you can also make colors pop by muting other colors, or change the focal subject of the photo. The US-based company has also unveiled a Pixel Slate tablet and a Pixelbook laptop along with a Google Home Hub device at the event.
During the announcement, Google talked a lot about the Assistant, AI, and machine learning which all allow the software and camera do to some unbelievable things.
Real-time translation is a cool and useful feature.
Though Google has said that Lens Suggestions will be exclusive to Pixel 3 handsets, some form of this new experience can be expected for the old Pixel phones. If you need a larger phone, Pixel 3 XL should be your choice otherwise go with Pixel 3. However, the old Pixel phones may get it, considering they have the needed sensors.
In any event, Apple's chip technology feels like it's years ahead of the competition.
