    IFixit rips open the Pixel 3 XL, finds a Samsung display panel

    30 days ago - By Ars Technica

    The Pixel 3 XL is out, but even after the usual slate of announcements and reviews , there's still a few things we don't know about it. For some answers on the internals, we turn to iFixit , which recently ripped open the Pixel 3 XL to show the world its insides.
    In last year's Pixel 2 XL, the LG OLED display panel was a big concern. Last year LG jumped back into the OLED smartphone market, after being absent for years, and it found itself way behind the competition. The display was grainy and dirty looking at low brightness, and there were burn-in issues. Others complained of a color...

    Google Pixel 3 pre-orders start shipping ahead of this week's release

    30 days ago - By Phone Arena

    Immediately after the announcement of the Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL last week, Google opened up pre-orders for the devices ahead of their release date this coming Thursday, October 18. And in order to meet this timeline, it appears the internet giant has already begun shipping out smartphones.
    This move is common practice in the industry - Apple also begins shipping its smartphones and wearables a couple of days early on order to meet deadlines - so it's certainly not surprising to see. However, at this moment in time, the status of Pixel 3 XL orders remains ...

    Disappointed in Pixel 3? Make iPhone XS your ultra-Google Phone!

    Pixel 3 vs. iPhone XS: Which is really your best Google Phone?
    Google's Pixel 3 event was... strange. Not that the Pixel 3 itself leaked well before the event. Leaks, whether you consider them advanced shopping intel or surprise-killing spoilers, have only been getting more and more pervasive over the years. It was how Google reactive to them that was strange. Instead of a "you might have already seen it" joke like Steve Jobs made following the iPhone 4 incident, Google released a teaser video heavily suggesting no one might have seen it yet - at all.
    It led some in the community to...

    First Google Pixel 3 XL teardown reveals a. Samsung display

    30 days ago - By Phone Arena

    Surprise, surprise, the Google Pixel 3 XL is actually made by Samsung this time around, reveals the phone's first teardown. The Pixel 2 XL's LG OLED screen was plagued with problems, and Google apparently decided to diversify display suppliers. The first screen tests reveal that the panel is well-calibrated, and with one of the lowest reflections out there, boding well for sunlight visibility. It is also HDR-certified, meaning that you will be able to watch whatever your expensive Netflix subscription throws at it as its creators intended.

    Google Pixel 3 and 3 XL Review

    30 days ago - By Phone Arena

    The Google Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL denote search giant Google's third set of premium smartphones in just as many years. While Pixel devices have become well-known for their smooth operation and enviable prowess in photography during this short period of time, Google has, over a longer period, established itself as an innovator. Being a software-first company in a hardware world has its advantages, and Google intends to not let us forget that.
    This year Google came out, guns-blazing, in a war many think the company was already winning - a war for photographic ...
