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...
Verizon has confirmed that it will be rolling out Universal Profile RCS for the Google Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL tomorrow, December 6, 2018.

Google's Messages app will be where users of the Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL will need to go to access the new functions. Verizon employees posted a full list of features for the service... 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...
Google has made a big deal about computational photography with its Pixel family of smartphones. Through a use of machine learning which can identify certain patterns in pictures, and with the help of the Pixel Visual Core (which was introduced on the Pixel 2 family of smartphones), Google is able to produce some of the best photos that we've seen in modern smartphones -- even while only having a single rear camera compared to two or three in other flagship devices. Google's latest addition to its Pixel 3/Pixel 3 XL computational photography arsenal is Night Sight, which allows for incredibly... Read more...
The Google Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL smartphones launched earlier this month and we covered them both extensively in our full review. The Pixel 3 devices have already encountered some issues already including a software bug that causes images to fail to save as expected. Another tidbit has surfaced that has to do with wireless charging on the Pixel 3 smartphones and using third-party accessories. The Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL will only wirelessly charge at 10W on the Pixel Stand; if you use a third-party wireless charger, the smartphones will charge at just 5W. Half power wireless charging isn't an issue... Read more...
Over the weekend we reported on a rather peculiar bug that was affecting Pixel 3/Pixel 3 XL users in addition to older Pixel and Nexus smartphones. The heart of the issue is that capturing a photo with the Google Camera app sometimes results in the photo not actually saving to the device. The problem was eventually traced to a bug in HDR processing for photographs. Due to a software glitch, if a picture was taken and that the camera app was immediately exited -- before HDR processing could completely finish -- to perform another task on your phone, the photo would not save. For those... Read more...
Google launched its Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL smartphones not long ago and we specifically had the opportunity to spend some hands-on time with the Pixel 3. We've also spent time with the camera of the Pixel 3 and found that the smartphone makes for a nice shooter, taking great shots in simple full auto mode. You can check out our full review of the Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL for our thoughts on the smartphones. However, an issue has surfaced for some users of the Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL and it's something we didn't observe in our full review. The issue is with the camera and causes some shots to fail...

When early birds starting picking up their Google Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL phones from Verizon this week, they were met with befuddlement when it was discovered that the devices were carrier locked. While this might not seem all that surprising given that the Pixel 3 is a Verizon carrier-exclusive device, Verizon has traditionally sold its smartphones unlocked straight out of the box (including previous-generation Pixel phones). However, this policy changed with the Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL (read the HotHardware review here). Instead, Verizon says that its smartphones have to be first... Read more...
