Why the Google Pixel 3/3 XL is so good

Google recently launched its third generation of its Pixel smartphone series. You’ll no doubt be wanting to know whether these new phones are worth your attention. The answer to that is yes of course. This is Google after all. Nothing they do is half-baked. In particular, the Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL boast a display and camera technology that you’ll find most impressive.

The Display

The Pixel 3 sports a 5.5-inch 18:9 display and is actually slightly smaller than its predecessor, the Pixel 2. But thanks to a more refined design, the bezels on the Pixel 3 are smaller and the screen is bigger than that on the Pixel 2. The larger Pixel 3 XL has a 6.3-inch 18.5:9 display.

Size aside, the OLED display is just beautiful. Google spent a lot of time calibrating the Pixel’s display. Users can choose between “Natural” mode and “Adaptive” mode. “Natural” mode gives near-perfect image quality, while “Adaptive” mode focuses on aesthetics, boosting colours to make the display that much more pleasing to the human eye.


The Camera

What really placed the Pixel 2 as a top camera smartphone was not so much its hardware, but the software processing. The Pixel 2’s camera is still regarded as one of the best on any smartphone, yet Google has still managed to up its game with the Pixel 3/3 XL and in much the same way.

The camera hardware has barely changed at all, but better sensors and processing technology mean a there is a noticeable improvement in image quality. There is also a new “Night Sight” mode for low-light photography as well as incredible zoom capability which stitches multiple images together to create one high quality image.
