Messed up NOTCH

The Pixel 3 XL has for the most part indistinguishable highlights from the Pixel 3, a procedure Google began with before Pixel telephones — and one Apple is utilizing for the iPhone XS and XS Max. It implies you don't have to forfeit highlights over which demonstrate you pick. In any case, physically, the telephones aren't indistinguishable, obviously. The Pixel 3 XL has a bigger screen — 6.3 inches versus the Pixel 3's 5.5 inches — offering space for more pixels. The bigger structure factor likewise takes into consideration a bigger battery. The main structure distinction this year is the huge indent on the best front of the Pixel 3 XL, while the littler Pixel 3 picks stout bezels around the screen.

Configuration is abstract, however we think the score is terrible, plain and straightforward. It extends excessively far into the screen, enough that it looks diverting. We don't ordinarily groan over the score on a telephone — the Essential telephone has an exquisite looking indent, and the iPhone XS' indent packs great equipment inside that give it a pass — yet the Pixel 3 XL takes it a bit unreasonably far for basically including a wide-point focal point. LG's V40 has two cameras on the front, however the score is a lot littler. On the off chance that the score must be this enormous, it'd be pleasant if Google incorporated a Face ID-like opening technique for the telephone.

On the off chance that you can't stand the span of the indent, you should purchase the Pixel 3 — though to the detriment of a bigger screen measure. On the other hand, we've gathered together a couple of approaches to veil the score in the event that you truly need the Pixel 3 XL's bigger screen.

In the event that the front is Mr. Hyde, at that point the back is Dr. Jekyll — it is attractive. Google is staying with the two-tone look, yet as opposed to blending glass and metal, it's everything glass on the back. Google figured out how to matte out the whole surface, so it's not as dangerous as different telephones and conceals fingerprints, which is a regular grumbling we have for all-glass telephones. We have perused protests about the back being effectively scratched up, however we haven't seen this on our unit. The Pixel 3 XL feels unquestionably more top of the line than the Pixel 2 XL, however it's still not as appealing as Samsung's Galaxy Note 9 or the iPhone XS.

The unique mark sensor on the back is in a decent position, and it's quick to respond. You can likewise swipe all over on it to get to the warning shade, which assists with ease of use on such an extensive screen telephone.

Like most huge telephones, the Pixel 3 XL can be somewhat inconvenient to make do with one hand — notwithstanding for somebody with expansive hands. We every now and again ended up repositioning the telephone here and there in our grasp, so as to get to the best or base piece of the screen. We do love the bigger screen land, however on the off chance that you need to serenely achieve all pieces of the telephone's screen, you might need to take a gander at the 5.5-inch Pixel 3.


A year ago's Google Pixel 2 XL endured a few issues with its screen, as a few proprietors griped about a blue tint issue, just as some other quality control issues. With the Pixel 3 XL, we do see an extremely black out line of screen consume in at the highest point of the screen encompassing the indent.

Presently, don't go nuts. This is something we never would have seen whether we hadn't seen reports of it on the web. Indeed, we are sure most clients won't see — you need to truly search hard for it. We thought the Pixel 2 XL issues were exaggerated, and we trust that to be the situation here (we've seen this in different cell phones previously, including those from Samsung). We'll be watching out for this to check whether it forms into a genuine issue, however there's nothing to stress over with the screen on the Pixel 3 XL.

Something else, the screen has a sharp 2,960 x 1,440 goals, and it's sufficiently splendid to see in direct daylight outside (however you'll have to max the splendor). Hues are dynamic, and there's a choice to tone down the immersion in the presentation settings if it's a lot for you. The screen conveys profound dark dimensions, which enables the hues to fly out considerably more.

Double forward looking speakers return, which is for what reason there's a jawline (the bezel beneath the screen) on the front. Google said the speakers are 40-percent more intense than a year ago's Pixel 2, and the thing that matters is detectable. The Pixel 3 XL sounds more extravagant and more vigorous than its antecedent, and it effectively motivated sufficiently noisy to fill a room. We lean toward it over the base terminating speakers on the iPhone XS or the Note 9, since a large portion of the sound is typically coordinated away.

The extraordinary screen and speakers make watching films and recordings on the Pixel 3 XL a delight.

There's no earphone jack, yet Google wins a few for including USB Type-C earbuds in the crate, just as a 3.5mm earphone jack connector (clue, insight, Apple). These USB-C earbuds have a couple of highlights like the Pixel Buds, remote earbuds Google revealed a year ago. Tap a catch on the wire to get to Google Assistant, and Assistant can likewise convey alarms when warnings touch base on your telephone. The earbuds sound great, and we cherish that it is so fast to get to Assistant with them.

Discussing Google Assistant, you can press the telephone to trigger Google's partner, much the same as a year ago.


The Pixel 3 XL is controlled by Qualcomm's Snapdragon 845 processor with 4GB of RAM. The processor is keeping pace with pretty much every Android lead cell phone in 2018, however the RAM is low contrasted with different telephones in this value extend. For instance, the OnePlus 6, Razer Phone 2, and Galaxy Note 9 accompany 6GB of RAM. Regardless of whether you need a ton of RAM in a cell phone is still disputable, and we've yet to keep running into any issues with execution on the Pixel 3 XL.

Here are a couple of benchmark results:

AnTuTu 3DBench: 234,257

Geekbench 4 CPU: 2,302 single-center; 7261 multi-center

3DMark Sling Shot Extreme: 2,374 (Vulkan)

The scores are on the lower end of telephones utilizing the Snapdragon 845 processor. The Sony Xperia XZ3 scored 281,131 on AnTuTu, and the Note 9 pursues with 273,992. The iPhone XS is as yet ruler with a practically incredible 334,325 AnTuTu score. Such an excess of being stated, you won't see a distinction in exhibition on the Pixel 3 XL. Applications open up rapidly, and exchanging between them feels liquid. Diversions like Alto's Odyssey and Breakneck performed easily with no issues at all.

There's no MicroSD card opening, however there are possibilities for 64GB or 128GB of interior stockpiling. Google is as yet offering free photograph stockpiling for Google Photos in the first goals, which should help free up inner capacity.

Attentive SOFTWARE

The most convincing highlights of the Pixel 3 XL, shy of its camera, is its product and Google's computerized reasoning capacities. The telephone runs Android 9 Pie, which is an incredible adaptation redesign that improves the look of the working framework, while including splendid changes, for example, the savvy pivot catch that averts programmed screen turns. We've investigated Pie as of now, and you can peruse up on all the new highlights in our convenient gathering.

The product experience on the Pixel 3 XL is practically immaculate. It's loaded up with little contacts that upgrade the general interface. The new "Flip to Shhh" highlight effectively gives you a chance to turn the telephone over to trigger Do Not Disturb mode, and when you lift it back up, a little vibration tells you the mode has killed. The haptic vibrations all through the telephone all in all vibe more grounded, however they're not exactly as calibrated as Apple's taptic motor.

One of our most loved highlights on the Pixel 2 makes an arrival — Now Playing. It utilizes on-gadget machine figuring out how to recognize tunes playing in your environment and show it on the telephone screen, before you choose to attempt and discover it yourself. Presently it's far superior on the Pixel 3, as should be obvious a background marked by the tunes distinguished by the telephone.

We additionally gone for Gmail's Smart Compose highlight, which is coming to versatile first with the Pixel 3. It's Google's A.I. completing sentences for you, which removes some exertion from composing addresses, telephone numbers, and that's only the tip of the iceberg. Google's Duplex innovation will likewise go to the Pixel 3 in the not so distant future. It gives you a chance to request that Assistant book an eatery reservation for you, and Assistant will put a call and handle everything itself. We gave it a shot before this mid year, however, we haven't gotten an opportunity yet on the Pixel 3 since it's not accessible yet. At first Duplex will just work in a bunch of real urban areas, previously growing somewhere else.

However, the wonderful finish is Google's Call Screening administration. In case you're sick of noting robocalls, you would now be able to tap the "Screen call" choice when you get a telephone call. Google Assistant will accept the call and explain to the guest to state why they are calling. You'll get a live interpretation of what the individual on the opposite end is stating. The ongoing translation is genuinely precise, however, there are frequently mistakes sprinkled in. Notwithstanding, you'll know whether it's an authentic individual or a robocall inside the initial five seconds of seeing the translation. You can choose to answer the call or imprint it as spam. We've had the delight of utilizing it on a couple robocalls as of now, and it's without a doubt turned out to be one of our most loved highlights on the telephone.

The majority of the highlights referenced above aside from "Flip to Shhh" are likewise going to the Pixel 2 and the first Pixel.

So for what reason do we say the product experience is "nearly" flawless? You've screwed over thanks to Android 9 Pie's motion route framework, which is reasonable, yet it's not our top pick. There's no alternative to return to the customary Android catches. We've inspired acquainted with exploring Android on the Pixel 3 XL, yet the framework isn't as natural as signals on the iPhone XS.

Dazzling CAMERA

The Google Pixel 2's camera was at the highest priority on our rundown of best camera telephones since its discharge, and keeping in mind that we have bounty more telephones to go for 2018 preceding we can crown a victor, the Pixel 3 XL is up there. The Pixel 3 XL is a strong improvement.
The Pixel 3 XL includes another component called Top Shot, which enables protect to key minutes you may have missed. This works on the grounds that the Pixel 3 when all is said in done takes various shots when you tap the screen symbol. So on the off chance that somebody turns away right when you snap a picture, Top Shot gives you a chance to see all the photographs when you tapped the catch, and it will naturally prescribe the best one. The proposals aren't constantly impeccable, however, we have figured out how to spare photographs we generally would've missed. That being stated, we do wish the picture quality was better. The best picture goals is put something aside for the photograph you really snapped, while all the additional photographs are screwed over thanks to a much lower goal.

Progressively great is Super Res Zoom, which diminishes the commotion in photographs caught by carefully zooming in. There's no optical zoom on the Pixel 3 XL, so zooming in to catch a photograph won't look on a par with utilizing the 2x optical zoom on telephones like the LG V40, Galaxy Note 9, or the iPhone XS, yet the outcomes are close. It works much better than anticipated, and in the event that you zoom in past the zooming focal points on those double camera frameworks, the Pixel 3's picture quality successes pretty much without fail.

Representation Mode is additionally beyond anyone's imagination previously, and we think the Pixel 3 XL takes the cake for having the best Portrait Mode over some other telephone — that applies to the front and back camera. It precisely recognizes the edges of a subject (with the incidental blunder), and the bokeh impact is a lot more grounded than on the Pixel 2. Subtleties are staggeringly sharp, particularly in low light, which is something that can't be said for some different telephones.

Picture Mode on the Pixel 3 XL is one of our most loved modes to utilize, and it frequently works unfathomably well on non-living items too. You would now be able to alter the haze power after you snap a picture, which is a component Apple likewise just presented on the iPhone XS.

We adore the expansion of the wide-point focal point on the front, which implies there are two selfie cameras now. Both are 8-megapixel cameras, with the principal focal point having an f/1.8 gap, and an optional wide-edge focal point with an f/2.2 opening. You can utilize the wide-edge focal point for gathering shots or to just take in a greater amount of the view in your selfie. Exchanging between the two cameras is unbelievably liquid, and Portrait Mode works with both so photographs can emerge much more. Picture quality is great, however not as sharp as the back cameras. It's a great deal of fun playing around with the wide-point focal point, and we distressfully wish Google added one to the back of the telephone for further adaptability.

The Pixel 3 can likewise now naturally track moving subjects in recordings to look after the center, and it works truly well. There's one more element called Night Sight, and it's intended for excessively dull conditions. It's currently accessible as a refresh to the Google Camera application, and it utilizes A.I. to fill in shading for ultra dull photographs, drastically improving them. We jump more into detail here, however, investigate the two photographs beneath to see exactly how it can improve your low-light photographs.

Top Shot, Lens Suggestion, Photobooth, Super Res Zoom, and Motion Auto Focus are restrictive highlights to the Pixel 3, yet in the event that you have a Pixel 2 or the main Pixel, at that point you ought to have gotten a refresh including Night Sight and movable picture obscure.

The Google Pixel 3 XL's camera takes brilliant photographs, however, the challenge has made up for lost time, and that implies the Pixel 3 XL isn't continually going to take the most perfectly awesome photograph. Its qualities are in the zero shade slack camera, representation mode, having great detail, and great low-light abilities, yet its shortcoming is shading tone, as the camera's photographs frequently had an alternate tone that wasn't like reality.


Our greatest frustration with the Pixel 3 XL is battery life; it's sensible, yet in case you're a substantial client, don't hope to traverse an entire day without energizing once. We began a large portion of our days with 100 percent at 7:30 a.m. — with overwhelming utilization, including bunches of picture taking, video, and music gushing, perusing, and some gaming, our Pixel 3 XL hit 25 percent by 3 p.m. with about 3.5 long periods of Screen on Time.

With lighter to medium utilization, the telephone normally charges better. We figured out how to hit 8 percent by 10:30 p.m. once, for the most part utilizing the telephone for music gushing and perusing. All things considered, we'd have gotten a kick out of the chance to see Google pack a greater battery like Huawei did with the P20 Pro, guaranteeing the telephone made it a well recent day. In any event, quick accusing help of the included 18-watt divider charger and USB-C to USB-C charging link will give you a decent arrangement of juice in only 15 minutes.

Google's A.I. is additionally a standout amongst the best at precisely proposing the time the telephone is relied upon to kick the bucket dependent on use. This kind of highlight is accessible on an assortment of different telephones, however more often than not the appraisals for battery life when you have 20 percent or so remaining are fiercely overstated and never exact. Google's theories are sensible and really accommodating.

The Pixel 3 XL is the principal Pixel telephone from Google to help remote charging, and it's an appreciated expansion. Your telephone won't charge any quicker, yet not angling around for a link is advantageous. Google moves a different Pixel Stand remote charger as a different adornment, however, it does as such substantially more than charge the telephone. We investigated. be that as it may, it's protected to express this is the remote charger to purchase in the event that you get the Pixel 3. It presents quick access to Google Assistant, can transform into an advanced photograph outline, can kill the showcase totally or turn on Do Not Disturb mode when the telephone is set on it, and it can help wake you up by impacting surrounding light 15 minutes before your alert. It's certainly justified regardless of its $79 cost.


The Google Pixel 3 XL is accessible available to be purchased, and costs begin at $899. The telephone is sold through Google and Verizon, yet on the off chance that you get it from the Google Store, you can utilize it on any real bearer organize in the U.S. You can look at all your choices for purchasing this telephone in our Pixel 3 XL purchasing guide.

Google offers a standard one-year guarantee that shields the telephone from producer absconds from the date of procurement.

Is there a superior option?

Indeed. Your first choice if the spending plan is a worry ought to be the littler and less expensive Pixel 3. It can do everything the Pixel 3 XL can do, yet it has a little screen, a little battery, and it costs somewhat less.

Next, look at the Galaxy Note 9. You get incredible equipment with great execution and a decent camera — particularly in low light — however its product isn't as cleaned as the Pixel. It's additionally more costly.

In case you're searching for the best value for your money, you should hang tight for the OnePlus 6T. It will probably cost around $500, and it will have incredible execution and straightforward programming knowledge, yet its camera might need. On the other hand, if its all the same to you iOS, purchase the iPhone XS. It has a liquid programming knowledge just as quick programming updates (or sit tight for the less expensive iPhone XR to turn out).

To what extent will it last?

The Google Pixel 3 XL is a glass sandwich with an aluminum outline in the center. While the Gorilla Glass 5 is tough and has a matte surface that keeps away from fingerprints, it's still glass that can break in case of a drop. Ensure you grab a case. Google has improved the water obstruction on the Pixel telephone, in any case, as it currently has an IP68 rating. That implies you can take it submerged up to 1.5 meters for 30 minutes.

Since this is a telephone straight from Google, you can hope to get programming rendition refreshes for a long time, and three years of security refreshes. We anticipate that the Pixel 3 XL should last you three to four years, however likely more. Taking into account what number of the Pixel 3 XL's highlights are going to the Pixel 2 and Pixel 1, anticipate that this telephone should get some crisp overhauls each year.
