We have all been there-- you are trying to take a picture of your friends or family at a dimly-lit event and the photo comes out terribly. This past November Google released “Night Sight” to help Pixel 3 owners take quality photos regardless of their lighting conditions. Google is obviously proud of the Pixel 3 and the company's new Night Sight ad takes a shot at the iPhone X and its supposedly inferior camera. The new ad features the same photo taken with two different camera phones. The iPhone X photo is underexposed and it is difficult to see the subject, however, viewers of course... Read more...
If you're in the market for one of the best smartphones that we tested during 2018, now might be the time to strike while the iron is hot. The Google Store is currently discounting both the Pixel 3 and the Pixel 3 XL by $150 each with no strings attached. That means that you can pick up the Pixel 3 for $649 instead of its regular MSRP of $799, while the Pixel 3 XL will set you back just $749 (versus an MSRP of $899). We should mention that these are the prices that you will pay upfront for a carrier unlocked device, so you won't have to deal with annoying carrier locks or messy and time-consuming... Read more...
In the lead up to last year's Black Friday and Cyber Monday sales, Google offered Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL owners Play Store credits. Fast forward to now and it appears Google is once again gifting some Pixel 3 and Pixel XL owners a $2 credit (or more) in the Play Store that can be redeemed on any app or game that costs more than $2 (or the credit amount). It's not clear if every Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL owner is seeing this promo, or if there some set criteria to qualify. If you own one of Google's flagship phones, head over to the Play Store on your handset and select the 'For You' tab, then scroll... Read more...
We've heard rumors of Lite versions of the Pixel 3 family in the past, and now we're receiving even more chatter regarding the alleged smartphones. According to the new report, the smartphones will be ready for a Spring 2019 launch and will be exclusive to Verizon, America's largest wireless carrier. This is definitely a big departure for Google which has exclusively focused on flagship Android smartphones for the past three generations (Pixel, Pixel 2, Pixel 3). The last time that the company offered a true mid-range option was with the Nexus 5X, which debuted way back in the fall of 2015. Alleged... Read more...
Last month a rather strange issue turned up with the Google Pixel 3 family of smartphones that caused the device to produce a fatal error in third-party camera apps. That meant that if you tried to snap a photo via Snapchat, for instance, you would be greeted with a camera error message and a camera that wouldn't work again until the phone was rebooted. Needless to say, this has been an annoying issue for Pixel 3 users. Some affected owners are claiming that the December Pixel 3 update has fixed the fatal camera error. Pixel 3 users have posted about their successes with the December... Read more...
If you missed out on grabbing a discounted Pixel 3 or Pixel 3 XL during Black Friday or Cyber Monday, there's no need to fret, Google has marked both of its flagship phones down once again. The smaller Pixel 3 is selling for $699 in the Google Store, down $100 from its MSRP, and the Pixel 3 XL now starts at $749, down $150 from its MSRP. Those are not insignificant discounts, even if the discounts aren't quite as deep this time. They're also still not cheap handsets, even with the savings, though Google offers a finance option to spread the cost out over time. Here is how the upfront and financed... Read more...

Google launched its Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL smartphones in October, and so far the devices have proven to be popular with Android fans. However, there have been some significant issues with these devices including a flaw that prevented the smartphone from saving photos in some instances. Some Pixel 3 devices have also suffered from a bug that resulted in two notches being displayed on the screen. Another Pixel 3 camera bug has surfaced, and this one causes the camera to encounter a fatal error that prevents the camera from working at all until the phone is rebooted. Reports indicate that the... Read more...

Google's Pixel 3 smartphones have been out for a while now; we reviewed them back at launch in October. Since that launch, the smartphone has had more than a few issues that have caused owners problems. One issue, which wasn't a bug but an intentional design choice, was that the Pixel 3 devices could only charge wirelessly at 10W with approved accessories and only approved accessory was Google's Pixel Stand at launch. The second issue was a bug that prevented some photos from saving correctly, Google acknowledged that bug and promised a fix. Now, another problem has reared its head for owners of... Read more...
Google's Pixel 3 family was one of the most anticipated smartphone launches of 2018, and as we showed in our hands-on review, it's been worth the wait. However, if you weren't one of the early birds first out of the gate to purchase Google's new Android Pie flagships, there's a new deal going on at Best Buy that might be worth your attention. If you purchase a Pixel 3 or Pixel 3 XL to activate on the Verizon Wireless network at Best Buy, you'll receive a free Nest Cam Indoor Security Camera. There aren't any promotional codes or silly mail-in rebates to mess with; simply add either... Read more...
The notch isn’t the most beloved smartphone feature in the world; in fact, many people outright hate the notch. With manufacturers like Apple and others working to make screens as large as possible -- while still finding a place for the front speaker, camera, and sensors -- the notch has been a necessity. However, notch haters won't like the new flaw that some Pixel 3 XL owners have reported. The bizarre Google Pixel 3 XL bug gives the smartphone an extra notch. This second notch has turned up on the right side of the screen, and it's clear that the bug has reproduced the top of the smartphone... Read more...
