Pixel 3 doesn’t have a second rear camera because it’s ‘unnecessary’: Google

Funny New Advert Shows Bitcoin Is on Google's Mind

Funny New Advert Shows Bitcoin Is on Google's Mind

These changes are related to design, hardware as well as the software.

We can't help you make that decision, but we can help you parse out the major similarities and differences between the two phones. The 64GB Pixel 2 XL goes for $22.91 per month for 24 months ($549) while the 128GB version goes for $27.07/month. If the Pixel 3 notices something amiss - perhaps a person blinked, or there was unintended motion - it'll recommend you switch to another frame.

The iPhone XR, on the other hand, isn't available to pre-order until October 19, and it won't start shipping until October 26. There's a lot to love about the Pixel 3 ...

The iPhone XR comes in more storage options than the Pixel 3. Tap that and you'll get a popup window.

It was actually extremely dim here, but judging by the Pixel 3's shot here you'd never know it. Google's HDR+ mode is able to brighten the darkest sections without pumping up the ISO to ridiculously grainy levels.

The Pixel 3 even cleans up nicely indoors, where the warm glow of lights in our office would typically wreak havoc on a phone's auto white balance.

Users have varying viewpoints on Face ID versus the fingerprint sensor, but for me, a fingerprint sensor is a major bonus.

Both the Pixel 3 and the iPhone XR are water-resistant and support wireless charging.

I'm buying the one with the headphone jack.

Samsung's may be the biggest Android beneficiary after Google, but that doesn't mean the Korean smartphone maker is not going to criticize Google's latest phone, which is competing directly against the Galaxy Note 9 and Galaxy S9.

The last update relates to Nest, with Google announcing that the Nest Hello Doorbell will integrate with Smart Displays to show who is at the door.

Despite the global success of the Android operating system, Google has done less well with Pixel phones, which appeared nearly three years ago and have so far less than 1% share in the worldwide market, according to Strategy Analytics. There's a 12.2-megapixel, f/1.8 aperture main lens on the back of either new Pixel, and a pair of front-facing cameras - one of which incorporates a wide-angle perspective. There's a single 12.2 MP lens (no dual camera shenanigans here) with optical and electronic image stabilization which is capable of shooting smooth 4K video.

Photobooth mode will automatically take your photo if you're smiling or making a amusing face. Also launching later this year, those using the Pixel in New York, Atlanta, Phoenix and San Francisco/Bay Area, will be able to use the Google Assistant Duplex technology to book a reservation at a restaurant.

Both phones have advanced selfie cameras, too.

.

Notably, all the updates related to Google Assistant will come to Google Pixel 3 and Google Home Hub first. Google says that it will launch on the Pixel 3 later this month, and will come to older Pixels in November. The dual-lens selfie cam exists exclusively to facilitate wide-angle selfies that fit more into the frame.
