The long wait is finally over for the successor to last year’s Google Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL both of which proved to be quite an impressive camera phone. Moreso, the Google Pixel 3 is set build on that level of excellence, hence, offering even better photography prowess.

As it appears, it features a close style of build as last year’s flagship but with a reduced bezels around its screen. As you would expect it has the latest software running from the box as well as the same flagship chipset in today’s smartphone.

Design and Display

We all know about the flagship glass build rave that has been going on in premium smartphones. A similar  build can be seen on the Google Pixel 3 which is also seen in last year’s Pixel too.

That’s a glass upper panel while the rest of the body has a matte finish. The sim slot is at the bottom near the USB Type-C  which is a new style if you ask me and there’s the Active Edge feature too for launching Google Assistant by squeezing the lower part.

Compared to last year’s Pixel 2, the smartphone now as a bigger screen and yet still very much ideal for the ones who don’t like a big phone. With the 5.5-inch screen comes the full HD+ (2160 X 1080 pixels) resolution.  It also supports HDR contents with always on feature too and the deep black peculiar to the P-OLED panel.

Battery and Camera

Although bigger than the battery on the Google Pixel 2, the smartphone still has a not too buoyant capacity. On it there is a  2, 915mAh battery which can only take much for heavy users before it goes off.

However, you would comfortably get to the end of the day usage on this one with normal usage. Qi wireless charging is supported and fast charge too thtothrthe USB Type-C port.

Going away from the recent frenzy to stack up the phone with cameras especially on the rear side. On the contrary, it has a single camera at the rear and a duo at the front.

It mounts a 12.2MP dual pixel camera with f/1.8  aperture, EIS and OIS also present. You would be getting two cameras at the front of the Google Pixel 3, an 8MP primary camera and another 8MP wide angle sensor for group selfies.

Like the DRAM chip on the Samsung Galaxy S9, there is a Pixel Visual Core chip set aside to improve photography on the smartphone and don’t forget there is AI integration too.

Hardware and Software

Internals include the appropriate chipset as in the other Android flagships which undoubtedly is from none other than Qualcomm except a select few. The processor in question is the Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 with eight core and a maximum clock speed of 2.7GHz and as usual an Adreno 630 GPU.

Recently there are smartphones that go as far as featuring 8GB RAM, however, at that 6GB of RAM is also common even in the mid-range level. Instead, what you here is 4GB RAM with either 64GB of 128GB internal storage and has Android 9.0 Pie on it.

Google Pixel 3 Price and Availability

The Google Pixel 3 price starts at $799 (290, 000 Naira) for the 64GB and about $899 (327, 000 Naira) for the 128GB storage model. The smartphone is available at Amazon for $749, see offer.

Google Pixel 3 went on sale on the 18th of October in the US and November 1, 2018 in some other region which is similar to that of the LG V40 ThinQ.
