    Google's Pixel 3 XL notch 'fix' is dumb and you should just buy a regular Pixel 3 instead

    2 monthes ago - By PC World

    The Pixel 3 XL hasn't even gone on sale yet and a lot of words have been written about the notch. I know, because I've written many of them. The controversy over the Pixel 3 XL's extra-large notch will surely rage on for weeks to come, at least until the next tech tumult takes hold of our attention. In response to the outcry, Google has offered a solution. Sort of. In a tweet from the Made by Google account, the company confirmed that there will be an option to hide the display cutout on the Pixel 3 XL for those who prefer "a more traditional smartphone look." Or, you know, one that's not...

    Poll results: the Pixel 3 XL notch is an eyesore

    2 monthes ago - By Phone Arena

    So, the Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL are out and they are pretty much exactly what the leaks kept showing us for months prior. This includes that notch on the Pixel 3 XL, which many were hoping is not real... there was even a rumor that Google is hiding a special Pixel 3 Ultra up its sleeve - a phone with a huge display and no notch or chin to speak of.
    Nope...
    There is a huge group of people out there that absolutely hate the cutout on the Pixel 3 XL. But we wondered: is it a vocal minority, or is it true that most people hate it? So, we ran a poll.
    Will the results shock you?

    All new Pixel 3 features that are coming to the Pixel 2, and a few that are not

    2 monthes ago - By Phone Arena

    The Pixel 2 started at $649, and, tellingly enough, kept the same price even after the Pixel 3 and 3 XL announcement. Why is that? Well, the new phone starts off at $799, that's why, so its predecessor now looks like a relative bargain.
    What will you gain if you get the new Pixel 3 instead of the Pixel 2, and is it worth the extra $150? It depends whether you are buying a new one, or already have a Pixel 2 or 2 XL, then the equation changes dramatically.

    2 monthes ago - By TheBoyGeniusReport

    Months of Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL leaks reached a boiling point in September when a shipment of prototypes was allegedly stolen, sold on the black market, and then reviewed by Eastern European bloggers. As a result, there were almost no surprises left earlier this week when Google finally unveiled its third-generation Pixel phones during a media event in New York City. We knew what the Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL looked like, we knew how impressive their new camera would be, and we knew just about all of their new features. We also knew that the larger Pixel 3 XL would feature a big notch at the...

    Are you switching from the Galaxy Note 9 to the Pixel 3 XL?

    2 monthes ago - By Android Central

    Samsung and Google both brought their A-game this year.
    Google's Pixel 3 XL is the latest big Android flagship to hit the scene, but it's far from the only large phone that's been released this year. Perhaps one of its biggest competitors is the excellent Samsung Galaxy Note 9.
    The Note 9's starting price is $100 more than that of the Pixel 3 XL's but comes with double the base storage. It also brings dual rear cameras, an Infinity Display with no notch, and the iconic S Pen.
    We're impressed with what Google's done with the 3 XL, but is it enough to sway Note 9 users to jump ship? Here's...

    If you're not following the official Twitter account of Samsung Mobile's US branch, you may want to start doing that and check the replies for some scathing remarks about the competition.
    Of course, this is a company that's been getting attention for years with publicity stunts deriding Apple for various divisive design decisions and a general lack of innovation, so it's hardly surprising to see it throw jabs at Google in the wake of the Pixel 3 and 3 XL announcement.
