Google Pixel 3 XL Review

Score: 9.62/10

Google Pixel 3 XL is a brilliantly built phone launched in 2018, with a very fast 2.5 GHz Octa-Core CPU, a big size 6.3-inches display, a 12.2 mega-pixels back-facing camera and an 8 megapixels front facing camera. We will get a better idea about this phone's wonders when we get into more details.

Google decided to power this cellphone using an extremely fast 2.5 GHz Octa-Core processing unit, included in a Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 SDM845 system chip and a great 4 GB RAM. An amazing aspect of this device is its 64 GB inmense internal storage and whereas it doesn't count with an SD memory slot, it is still enough to install lots of apps, games, photos and videos without thinking about how much storage capacity is left.

This phone construction combines Glass (Corning Gorilla Glass 5) and Aluminum . This cellphone is for sale in 3 different colors, black, pink and white. Even though this phone only has 6.22" long and 3.02 inches wide, it's still able to fit a a 6.3 inches screen. The Google Pixel 3 XL is extremely thin and comfortable, being just 0.31" thick. This cellphone is much lighter than what one would think about a device like this.

This device is equipped with a incredible 6.3" display with a 1440 x 2960 resolution, which makes everything look vivid and colorful.

The Google Pixel 3 XL is equipped with two cameras, a 12.2 MP back facing camera and an 8 MP front side camera. this cellphone's back facing camera lens has an aperture of f/1.8 so it can shoot sharp photos even in poorly lit environments. It is capable of filming videos up to 3840x2160 (4K) at 30 fps, and 1280x720 HD slow motion videos up to 240 fps (8 times slower ).

The Google Pixel 3 XL features a 3430 mAh great Li - Polymer non-replaceable battery providing this cellphone an average battery life. An issue to evaluate is that the Google Pixel 3 XL's battery is non-removable so you can't change it when it starts to last shorter, though having 3430 mAh you will probably buy a new cellphone before it happens.

The Google Pixel 3 XL includes wifi connectivity (and it can share it with other devices around, acting as a mobile hotspot), LTE-A 4G super quick connection and also HSPA+ connectivity (which is a bit slower 4G technology) and the fastest 3G connection type, using HSDPA and HSUPA technologies. This phone comes with two Nano SIM cards so it can to use 2 different phone lines at the same time.

This phone also comes with plenty of useful features as Fingerprint Scanner, Wireless charging capability, NFC (to trigger actions, transfer data or make payments by holding your phone close to another NFC device or tag), Bluetooth (5.0 ) and GPS Localization, and multiple sensors like Light Sensor, Proximity Sensor, Accelerometer, Gyroscope, Barometer and Compass.

This device is priced 899 dollars, which is not a really offer for comparing with other similar phones. It doesn't matter whether you need a work cellphone, need a phone for playing games, love photography or will use it as a social device, you will definitely love this device. When you buy the Google Pixel 3 XL you will also receive Pixel USB-C earbuds, SIM tool, USB-C 18W Power adapter, USB-C to 3.5mm headphone adapter, Quick Switch Adapter, Quick Start Guide and USB-C to USB-C cable.
