The following is a transcript of the video.
In many respects, Pixel 3 phones are typical of generic. You know they do not have an S Pen stylus, they do not have three lenses on the back. It has no crazy excellent features. It’s just a smartphone, but I’d say it’s currently the best smartphone.
Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL, both of which have the main ingredients and the foundation for a good smartphone. So it’s a very good screen, it’s good battery life, it’s a good camera and water resistance, but Pixel phones the new Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL, they have a little extra to those who only make them brighter than the rest.
So one of the places where Google Pixel phones are on is with the software. There is not much hardware, but that’s what you see on the screen itself. That means Android for one, and it’s a pure expression for Google’s Android. There are no extra things there, no bloatware. It’s really clean. It is very simple. It is liquid. It feels reliable. It’s just a really solid version of Android that I usually prefer over the extra things you’ll find on, like Samsung phones or LG phones. You just get a clean view of what Android is supposed to be and there’s a better phone for it.
One of the biggest reasons people buy the Pixel phones depends on the camera, and Pixel 3 XL is absolutely no exception. It’s incredible how good these cameras are. There is something Google does with its software that only makes the pictures look very natural and there is still a lot of processing going into it. It is largely software based. You can really get a sense of space and space when viewing a photo from a Pixel 3 phone.
One thing you may have noticed is that Pixel 3 phones still have a lens camera system. Google can do with software what others you know can only dream about. One of the amazing things that Pixel 3s can do is to have a really good portrait mode with a camera with a lens rear camera, and then Google made some sort of the fake variety of digital zoom you see on other phones, but they did it is better. It’s almost to the level of a real zoom lens on a phone and later along the line, we expect the new Night Sight feature, which in turn will be a software update, and that makes Pixel 3 cameras really good in low light, at least that’s what we showed and told at a Pixel event. Of course, we will have to test these statements.
The Top Shot feature is also pretty cool. So what does it really take a lot of photos, just in that case, maybe the moment you press the shutter button, something went wrong with the photo or the subject flashed. I think it’s a great little feature. So Google added a little extra lens there, but on the selfie side of things. Google had to add an extralins for the ultrasound self-adhesive. Now it makes sense and I wish Google put an ultra-wide lens on the back of the phone too because ultra-wide is nice and it’s very good to wear phones like the LG V40. It is so meaningful for a selfie and for self-takers because it means you get more people in the shot, more of your place and surroundings in the shot. These are features that can be used all the time without really thinking about it. You just, just use it.
These Pixel 3 screens look really, really good. Now, one thing specific to 3 XL is awesome, but hello, you know what I’ve been using the phone for about a week and I’ve forgotten about it. It really is not a problem. It does not interfere with using the phone. I just hope you do not base your next smartphone purchase decision on how the phone looks, because I’d think you go into a store and you’ll see the Pixel 3 XL cabinet and you’ll be fine. It’s a passport, keep going. The thing is, you would miss a really, really good phone. You just have to look past that chin.
So it runs in Qualcomm Snapdragon 845, which is the latest chip. Pixel 3 has been completely fine and seamless, fluid and even and stable and no problem at all, with Snapdragon 845 and 4 RAM. I would not be worried about it at all. And it’s typical of Apple. So you get the Google phone to run with Google software and they are made to work perfectly.
Of course running Pixel 3 Google’s Android 9.0, Android Pie, I really like it. I think it’s amazing. Took me a bit to get used to me, I have to put a little bit on the home button to multitask and that kind of things and different gestures. They feel very smooth. They feel responsive and it has actually been an improvement on how I use the phone.
Building quality, it was an improvement, definitely above the original pixel, but also over Pixel 2. Pixel 3 has a really super stylish two-tone glass display and now the lower half is also glass, but the variety has this frosted texture and it really feels kind. I really do not like to put a case on it.
As you can expect, with Android phones, especially the advanced stuff, you get a quick charger in the box, right? I’m talking to you Apple. Yes, you get a good USB-C to USB-C cable and a USB-C charging stone and it charges the phone fast. And you now have a new choice on how to charge the phone, right, we have wireless charging at last, right? On days when I use the phone heavily, a lot of screen time, many apps, watching videos too. You know it’s at the end of the day, it’s probably about 35 percent to say, so no problem there, but nothing special either.
I would say that the Pixel 3 phones are also the Android device that you should check if you are an iPhone user. Now I know, yes, you’re like, “Oh my God, iPhone users would never switch to Android.” Well, you know sometimes, people like to swap it up a bit. Maybe if you had the iPhone since the very first iPhone and you like to see what’s out there, but if you’re switching to Android, it must be 1
00% Pixel. It only gives you the most pure expression for Google and Android. Its simplicity, how well it works, its performance, its reliability, it’s the best reference for Android that you will get. They have lots of meaningful features that you may not even really notice, as every time I put my SIM card back into the Pixel phones, I’m just like, ah, that’s what it’s supposed to be.
