Google attempts to undercut Apple’s iPhone XS with cheaper Pixel 3

Google attempts to undercut Apple’s iPhone XS with cheaper Pixel 3

They flaunt Pixel's iconic two-tone design, which is defined by a soft-touch glass back that feels great in the hand. TopShot is a mode that automatically snaps photos right before and right after the moment you hit the shutter, then recommends the best shot - meaning you don't miss a crucial moment. Super Res Zoom is a computational photography technique, traditionally used for astronomy and scientific imaging, that produces sharp details even when zooming into the subject. With Night Sight, you can take bright, detailed, colourful shots around the campfire, in a moonlit forest, or a selfie as you're headed out of that dimly-lit club. But once you throw in the accessories, the Slate becomes a bit more pricey. Photobooth mode uses AI to recognise that when you're smiling or making a amusing expression, you're ready for a selfie.

Below are 5 reasons you should pick upcoming Google's Pixel phone over Apple's iPhone and Samsung's Galaxy lineup. Just tap on "Screen call" to find out who's calling and why, as well as other information (as prompted by you).

The folio back flap pulls double duty as a cover and a stand, allowing you to use the Slate at nearly any angle.

The Pixel 3 has a 2915mAh battery and the Pixel 3 XL has a 3450mAh battery. However, if your use case changes regularly and you're looking for more generalized productivity, the Pixel Slate may have the advantage.

One new feature is Home View.

Instead, the Pixel Slate is more of a Chromebook than anything else - created to run Chrome-native software, including Google's suite (Docs, Calendar, etc.) and a broad variety of third-party applications. Like the Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL before it, they're a refinement of the previous model with a little more horsepower and a few hardware upgrades here and there.

Steve Kerr after preseason ejection: 'I don't want to be here anyway'
But when we are focused and in tune with each other, understanding what we're trying to do to be successful, obviously we're tough.

The Pixel 3 and 3 XL have been unveiled as part of the Made by Google event in NY and London.

As you can see above, Google envisions Pixel Slate owners treating the device more like Microsoft's Surface Pro and Apple's iPad Pro devices - powerful, laptop-like handhelds that easily convert into tablets.

"To be fair, Google hasn't invested in the tablet space", Liu said. It also has integrated Google Assistant, Titan security, Family Link control, and a free 3-month trial of YouTube TV. Smart Compose suggests phrases in your emails so that you can draft them faster, on the go. Now the Pixel 3 and the Pixel 3 XL are here to claim the title.

Pixel phones should get wireless charging with a new Pixel Stand charger. Initially launched on the Pixel 3 phones, the feature will eventually be rolled out to other Pixel phones. And why would celebrity photographer Annie Leibovitz agree to use a mobile phone for said mag photos? The 7-inch screen may only offer half the real-estate that, say, a new Echo Show provides, but it's pleasingly high-resolution and crisp. The new generation of Pixel phones features an improved camera that's backed by Google's AI.

The software is Android 9.0 Pie, which we're seeing on a bunch of other phones now, but some features are coming to these phones first. Google has equipped the Pixel 3 with a 2915mAh battery, while the larger Pixel 3 XL comes with a 3450mAh battery. For that price, you get an Apple A10X Fusion processor, 4GB of memory and a 64GB flash storage drive inside.

Pre-orders for the Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL are live at Verizon, for those interested. That's about double what the Pixel 3 XL will cost if a recent leak is correct.
