Google Pixel 3 vs. Pixel 3 XL: What's the difference?




<div _ngcontent-c15 = "" innerhtml = "

The world's most leaked smartphones are finally here, so we know almost everything about it

Google
& # 39; s new Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL, but that does not stop them from being among the most controversial flagship phones ever. They also contain some surprises that Google did not mention at launch.

Here's what you need to know about the differences between Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL and how they've improved on Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL …

Google Pixel 3 XL has one big point of discussion Google

Displays – Super Size Me

Perhaps the most obvious and polarizing change that Google has made to its enhanced pixels is its displays:

  • pixels 3 – 5.5 inches, AMOLED, 2160 x 1080 pixels, 18: 9 ratio (443 ppi density), 77.2% screen-to-body ratio, Corning Gorilla Glass 5, 100% DCI-P3 coverage, HDR
  • pixels 3 XL – 6.3 inches, AMOLED, 2960 x 1080 pixels, 18 , 5: 9 ratio (523 ppi density), 82.8% screen-to-body ratio, Corning Gorilla Glass 5, 100% DCI-P3 coverage, HDR

While the Pixel 3 plays it safe with a larger and thinner 5.5-inch display than its 5-inch predecessor 16: 9, the Pixel 3 XL generates all the attention Google has given the 6.3 Inch display.

I will discuss this in the following design section, but Google has earned much recognition for the quality of the pixel panels this year. After the controversy surrounding the Pixel 2XL both new models have premium OLED panels that were praised by DisplayMate in the same class as the Galaxy Note 9 and iPhone XS.

Google has produced displays that are worth enjoying. Except …

Designs – 2017 in 2018

Similar to the first two pixel generations, Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL also appear to be behind the curve in design.

It is noteworthy that the Pixel 3 looks like a shrunken version of last year's Pixel 2XL and the Pixel 3 XL comes closer to last year's iPhone X knock-offs than the dashing and almost non-pointing phones we do have seen by Huawei, Vivo and OnePlus in 2018. There is also a late change to glass backs to support wireless charging (more later) and the headphone jack will not come back.

That is, if you pass the controversial fronts (at least you can hide the Pixel 3 XL-notch there is actually a lot to like.

Both Pixel 3 phones have glass backs with structure and smooth split surfaces Google

First of all, the Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL are almost identical to Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL despite their larger displays, while their body-to-screen ratios have also improved significantly:

  • Pixel 2 – 145.7 x 69, 7 x 7.8 mm (5.74 x 2.74 x 0.31 in) and 143 g (19650009) pixels 2 XL – 157.9 x 76.7 x 7.9 mm (6.22 x 3.02 x 0.31 in) and 175 g (19650000)] pixels 3 – 145.6 x 68.2 x 7.9 mm (5.73 x 2.69 x 0.31 inches), 148 g (5.22 ounces) )
  • Pixel 3 XL – 158 × 76,7 × 7,9 mm (6,22 × 3,02 × 0,31 in), 143 g (5.04 oz)

In addition, both phones maintain their forward-emitting stereo speakers (now 40% louder than last year), provide two front-facing cameras (discussed in the section Camera), improved IP68 dust and water resistance ((IP67 last) Year) and most of their glass backs are textured to make them more grip and fingerprint resistant.

Pixel 3 ends remain colorful and optimistic Google

The colors retain the positive feeling of their predecessors again this year. I am sorry to see that the so-called "Panda" black and white color scheme goes, but in its place are "Clearly White" (white with a green power button), "Not Pink" (yes pink, with a orange power button) and "Clearly Black" (also the charging port is black). All three colors are available on both models.

Performance – Great Software, Unbearable Hardware

Google always praises the Pixel Palette as more than just hardware, and that's true. They deliver standard Android, instant updates and no bloatware – an important differentiator in the Android world. But the hardware should be even more exciting than it is:

  • Pixel 3, Pixel 3 XL – Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 octa-core chipset (4x 2.5GHz Cryo 385 Gold and 4x 1.6GHz Cryo 385 Silver CPUs), Adreno 630, 4GB RAM

What stands out here like a sore thumb is the RAM. In 2018, Android competitors have switched to 6GB and even 8GB of RAM with [19659039] exceptional results and as long as Android is efficient, my experience with the similarly 4GB-equipped Pixel 2XL can get stuck with a lot of it's multitasking – here extra RAM shines. It's just a bizarre decision at this price.

RAM is the leader in the Snapdragon 845 chipset from Qualcomm, which delivers about 30% more power than last year's 835. However, the timing of Google's Pixels leaves much to be desired as Qualcomm announces its next-generation chips will be released for release in January each December, so these devices will not be long on the current Gen hardware.

I am sure that the Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL will come out of the box at lightning speed. The big question for me is: how long will they stay that way?

Google Titan M security chip in both new pixels Google

Where Google has listened to customer concerns is security. Apple dents its claims about data security, and in response, both the Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL come with a new "Titan M" security chip that protects your data and passwords. Google has not yet explained exactly how the chip works, but the fact that it exists is a step in the right direction.

Dual Sim – eSim Made Right

While the Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL were omitted for the Google presentation, they simultaneously support Sims and eSims (electronic sims). A point that Google later confirmed and that brings a real multi-sim functionality for home and work numbers and frequent travelers. Or, as more networks start supporting eSims – something that should happen quickly, this functionality is now also built into Apple's new iPhone XS and iPhone XS Max .

It is noteworthy that Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL also had standard and eSim support in the last year, but they could not run concurrently, forcing the user to switch between them.

Cameras – Dual Cameras Backward

Google's pixel series is the undisputed king of smartphone photography, but while almost every major smartphone maker is switching to dual cameras in 2018, Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL have probably gone the wrong way:

  • Pixel 3, Pixel 3 XL – Rear: 12.2 MP, f / 1.8, 28 mm (wide), 1 / 2.55 ", 1.4 μm, OIS, dual pixel PDAF, front 1: 8 MP, 1 : 1.8, 28 mm (wide), PDAF, front 2: 8 MP, f / 2.2, 19mm (ultra wide), no AF

Yes, the dual cameras are on the front! Google did this to add a second wide-angle lens with a 97 degree field of view. This is welcome and a noteworthy upgrade for group photos, but I'm also wondering why we still need the standard lens (75 degrees)? Google could have removed it and made the score much smaller. We can keep the wide-angle lens closer together as needed.

Dual Selfie Camera on the Pixel 3 XL Google

There are two more camera complaints: still no optical zoom due to the single rear camera on the back and no 60fps 4K recording – something that is supported by many rivals.

These are pixel phones and the camera is where they stand out. So, those grunts aside, they're full of exciting upgrades:

Top Shot – a "best shot" feature that automatically suggests alternative photos before and after your photo when the subject flashes or you miss their smile to have .

Photobooth mode – automatic recording when you smile or pull faces in front of the camera. The shutter button does not need to be pressed.

Super Res Zoom – an adaptive alternative to optical zoom that compensates for the movement of your hand when you zoom in for a shot.

Playground Mode on the Pixel 3 Camera Google

Playground – add AR (augmented reality) characters like Marvel superheroes to your recordings. You will interact with the landscape and the theme. Kids (and big kids) will like that.

Motion Auto Focus – Touch a moving subject and the new pixels will automatically track and focus on it. Ideal for taking pictures of pets and children.

Night Sight – a game that changes the low-light mode and not only illuminates a very dark scene with "Computer photography and AI", but even restores the colors. Google's demo showed an amazing comparison with the new iPhone XS (below), so we hope the theory goes out in reality. The function will be delivered after the start of Pixel 3 via an update to new and older pixels.

Night Side Comes to Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL Google

Battery Life and Charging – Incremental Updates

Battery life was pixel strength, but Google skipped it at all when it launched Pixel 3 and Pixel 3XL. Now we have the information, it is clear that the smaller pixel 3 is the big winner:

  • pixels 3 – 2915 mAh (pixels 2 – 2700 mAh)
  • pixels 3 XL – 3430 mAh (pixels 2 XL – 3520 mAh)

In conjunction with the smaller display and lower resolution, the Pixel 3 should now last almost as long as the Pixel 3 XL, which – somewhat surprisingly – has a slightly smaller battery than last year. However, this should be more than offset by the more efficient chipset.

The USB-C fast charging process also remains in place, with Google claiming a 15-minute charge with the included fast charger would take up to seven hours.

But the real headlines – and the reason for the glass backs – is that the Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL now support fast Qi wireless charging up to 10W. Google is taking advantage of this by launching a pixel that not only wirelessly charges 10 watts, but turns your smartphone into a smart display (automatic photo slideshows, reminders, integration with the Nest Hello Video doorbells, etc.) and virtual Assistant when the phone is in standby mode.

Pixel Stand Wireless Charger Google

Price and Storage – Google's Gamble

In 2018 smartphone manufacturers have increased prices, but also increased storage capacities. With the Pixel 3 and Pixel 3XL, Google has made the first but not the last: [3,959,027] pixels 3 – $ 799 (64GB), $ 899 (128GB)

  • pixels 3 XL – $ 899 (64GB), $ 999 (128GB)
  • The result is that Pixel 3 costs $ 150 more than Pixel 2, while Pixel 3 costs XL $ 50 more than Pixel 2 XL. This is a risk, especially with Apple offers iPhones in capacities of 64 GB, 256 GB and 512 GB.

    Google will argue that greater capacity is not required as it provides unlimited photo and video storage on Google Photos for pixel owners. But not everyone will choose to use Google Photos, and even if you do, it can not beat the speed and offline flexibility of most phones in native storage.

    I personally think Google took a big risk here when an average user walks into a store, looks at a list of specifications, and loses the pixels (especially on paper with their individual rear cameras). For me options with 64 GB and 256 GB would be the smart move.

    Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL at their best Google

    Bottom Line

    The Pixel 3 XL will get a lot of abuse. When the original Pixel hit the market, Google mocked Apple to remove the headphone jack and threw the company's own "Think Different" message in the face. Since then, the Pixel 2 models have removed the headphone jack and the Pixel 3 XL has the biggest score on the market. Part of this abuse is deserved.

    Nevertheless, there is a lot to like about Pixel 3 and Pixel 3XL.

    You're sure to have class-leading cameras again (given the fact that the old Pixel 2XL is still the class leader at this point) and a load of new tricks. The wide-angle selfie cam will come in handy, the displays are now of the highest quality, there is more power, wireless charging, improved water resistance and true dual-SIM functionality. And do not forget Android and instant updates.

    However, I am not convinced that Google has done enough to convince Apple and Samsung fans to jump off the shelf. The designs look old-fashioned, prices are high, storage options are low, and they start with 10-month-old chipsets and unnecessarily little RAM.

    I'm sure those who can overlook these mistakes will love the new pixels and as a camera enthusiast still end up in my bag as my daily driver (has only the Pixel 2 XL [19659100] was the whole year ). But if Google wants to attract the masses, then its uninspiring hardware has to catch up with the inspirational software when Pixel 4 launches …
