Renders of the new Pixel 3 in different colors.

After a great year for the Pixel 2 smartphone, Google has decided to launch a better and sophisticated choice for this year; the Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL. People are saying that Pixel 3 could be the best acquisition for this year in term of smartphones. Last year’s Pixel 2 was between the top 5 of having the best smartphone camera. With its 12.2Mp rear camera and 8Mp front camera, the Pixel 2 reach the top 5, competing with major brands all around the world such as Huawei’s P20 Pro, Apple’s iPhone X, HTC U12 Plus, and Samsung’s Galaxy S9. For the short time that Google has been on the smartphone’s market, they have reached a great success and is definitely something to point out.

Even though Google’s Pixel 2 had one of the best cameras a smartphone can have, they lack good hardware. They were constantly criticized for the screen dreading blue tint and other minor problems that brought doubt of Pixel 2 being a good capable phone.

This time, Google is coming with a better proposal and people are expecting it to be the best smartphone in the market. It is the well-known Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL. Changing their vendors from LG to Samsung, this new smartphone is expected to beat all type of hardware problems that its previous generation had. Also, the new Pixel 3 improved its looks, with a beautiful matte finish and a larger variety of colors to choose, since this was another issue for the Pixel 2, where its body was not that attractive for the user.

The new Google Pixel 3 XL comes with Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 chipset with 4GB RAM (exceeding the 3GB RAM of the iPhone X), and you can choose between 64GB or 128GB internal memory. These are great specifications that can compete with the best smartphones of the other big major brands; it’s totally a great option to consider when buying a new smartphone.

Best camera smartphone in the market.

But still, the Pixel 3 XL is primarily a camera smartphone. Knowing the success that the past generation got by their high tech cams last year, Google, decided to put their best efforts of having the best specs in terms of display and image processing. It uses Google’s Machine Learning along with a Pixel Core Chip that achieves a high level of image processing. It has a rear 12.2MP camera with optical stabilization and a new dual 8MP front camera that makes the Pixel 3 a great selfie camera. Close up images are taken with high detail even when you are not on portrait mode. It also contains a wide-angle sensor that let the user take pictures with larger backgrounds. The camera also has great low-light performance, making it the best smartphone camera in the market. So if you are looking for a phone to take amazing photos, this should definitely be your first choice.

Now getting into its hardware specifications, the new Pixel 3 has a bigger 6.3-inch screen with QHD resolution 1440×2960, compared to the past generation of Google’s smartphones. It has an OLED display that saves some battery consumption letting the device get a charge up to 24 hours of usage including video, live streaming and some app running. It also has two new front speakers said to be 40 percent louder than the previous Pixel, according to Google.

Pixel 3 XL: candidate to be the best smartphone out there.

Google’s Pixel 3 has nothing to envy from the big houses of smartphones. It is at the same level or even higher from the best smartphones of any brand. So my recommendation is that you should take some time to consider this option, Google may not have the same production capacity as the major brands such as Apple and Samsung, but it is definitely a smartphone that will exceed our expectations, if not consider the best phone of the year.
