Google Pixel 3 XL


The Pixel 3 XL is Google's most recent lead cell phone. It guarantees to bring all that we have generally expected with the Pixel mark, including a spotless form of Android, quick execution, quality camera and some cool programming traps that no one but Google can concoct.

The current year's dispatch has been buried in discussion. While the Pixel gadgets are no outsiders to debate, the Pixel 3 XL got a considerable amount even before the gadget was propelled. Quite a bit of it needed to do with the plan of the telephone, which, as a matter of fact, isn't Google's best work.

Aside from that, we don't see a considerable measure to whine about. On paper, the Pixel 3 XL seems to be a legitimate leader cell phone. There are a couple of things that trouble us, for example, the 4GB memory and capacity alternatives that maximum out at 128GB, however we should sit back and watch if those present any issues later.

By and large, however, we are anticipating plunging into this telephone. Pixel telephones are continually energizing, as they are significantly something other than equipment particulars, and Google is enthusiastic about utilizing programming to work more intelligent, not harder. In any case, it's 2018, and you require both great programming and equipment on the off chance that you have to emerge. What's more, considering the value Google charges for these things, we trust the Pixel 3 XL overwhelms us on the two fronts.


The Pixel 3 XL has a cutting edge structure for a 2018 cell phone, despite the fact that Google has behaved in a dubious manner with it, a lot to the objection to individuals.

In contrast to the littler Pixel 3, the Pixel 3 XL has a score at the highest point of the presentation, which is drastically taller than on most telephones and takes two lines worth of room on the showcase. Beneath the showcase is a thick bezel that is generally indistinguishable thickness from the score above.

The one-two punch of a score and a thick button is by all accounts the explanation behind disappointment in a great many people and we need to concur, at first look, it doesn't look lovely. To be reasonable, at second look it doesn't improve either.

Having said that, subsequent to having utilized the telephone for half a month, in addition to the fact that we got used to the plan, we don't see it any longer. When you begin utilizing the telephone, your consideration is on the presentation itself and you'll scarcely even notice the score, not to mention the button at the base.

Front side

Furthermore, the indent is more profound for a reason, and that is because of the nearness of double cameras, an extensive amplifier, surrounding light sensor and the vicinity sensor being packed in. The jaw could have been more slender however we trust Google needed it to be generally indistinguishable range from the score so content put between the two would look equidistant from the sides.

By and large, it is anything but a pretty telephone and it doesn't really develop on you, either. Be that as it may, you quit seeing it sooner or later so it's extremely alright.

Proceeding onward from the front of the telephone, the Pixel 3 XL has aluminum sides that are painted on in a reflexive wrap up. The paint conceals any recieving wire lines and the reflexive complete matches the glass on the front and the back.

On the privilege are the power and the volume catches. Not surprisingly, Google puts the power catch over the volume catches, which is the correct inverse of how most other Android producers do it. We incline toward it the other path around as we utilize the power catch much more regularly and might consequently want to have it beneath where it is all the more effortlessly available. It likewise makes taking screen captures simpler, as you can basically do it with one thumb.

The white and pink variants of the telephone likewise have a hued control catch. The white model has a mint green catch while the pink form has a darker pink catch. The dark model accompanies only a dark catch. We like the shaded power catch however favored the brilliant orange from a year ago's white Pixel 2 XL over the green on the current year's model, as that emerged more.

Alternate sides of the telephone don't have much occurring. The left side is left clear and the best just has an amplifier. On the base is the USB-C connector alongside a plate for a solitary nano SIM. The SIM plate does not sit flush with the body and stands out somewhat notwithstanding when pushed the distance in, which can both be seen and felt. We truly wish Google had more tightly resiliences at these things thinking about the cost of these telephones. We don't speculate it will cause any issues with water entrance yet it is a blemish.

The back of the telephone is its best side, and not exactly when contrasted with the front. This year, rather than having a double glass and metal back, Google has discarded the metal out and out and run with a solitary extensive sheet of glass. In any case, to keep the mark two tone complete of the past models, the lower some portion of the glass that would have beforehand been metal is carved, which gives it an alternate look and surface that is reminiscent of aluminum.

Rear side

The impact this makes is dazzling. In the first place, it feels unimaginable to contact, with a velvety surface, in contrast to some other glass back telephone. Second, the manner in which the glass flawlessly spills out of the carved complete in the lower 66% to the lustrous complete at the best is splendid.

Lamentably, likewise with everything matte, this flawless surface includes some significant pitfalls. It's anything but difficult to scrape the back of the Pixel 3 XL and the imprints show up promptly. They are amazingly evident on the dark model yet the white and pink models conceal them better. All things considered, they are anything but difficult to spot from specific edges and turned out to be more noticeable with the assistance of oil from your hands.

We have attempted a portion of the systems we saw on YouTube that evidently given you a chance to dispose of these imprints, including cleaning the telephone under running water. The imprints returned for our situation even subsequent to washing. Regardless of whether this technique worked, we don't believe it's a useful arrangement and nobody ought to need to wash their telephone each week.

Our answer is to consider getting one of the two light hues or in the event that you should run with dark at that point put it inside a case.

As the name recommends, the Pixel 3 XL is a major telephone. It truly feels like grasping a mammoth section of glass, which shouldn't be unfamiliar to anybody utilizing a Samsung Note gadget or a Plus estimated iPhone however for the vast majority this will be a somewhat substantial telephone. The lustrous sides don't help much either and are extremely tricky. We prescribe some alert when taking care of this telephone.

Luckily, the telephone is exceptionally well fabricated and completed, beside the previously mentioned SIM plate issue. It is likewise IP68 evaluated for residue and water obstruction, which should prove to be useful when you are doing your week by week under the sink cleaning sessions to expel the scrapes from the back.

By and large, the plan could have been exceptional yet it's not so terrible as it's been described. What is, in any case, is the glass back that is generally simple to scrape, and for us that is a greater issue. In any case, generally the Pixel 3 XL is a sensibly very much structured and well-constructed telephone that you can figure out how to live with sooner or later.


The Pixel 3 XL has a 6.3-inch, 2960x1440, 18.5:9 OLED show. The showcase board is made by Samsung.

The presentation on the Pixel 3 XL is essentially enhanced from the one on the Pixel 2 XL. The hues are exceptionally exact, particularly in the Natural profile. Then again, you can change to the Boosted profile for a 10% immersion help.

We additionally didn't see any consume in amid our utilization, nor was there any grimy screen impact watched.

Nonetheless, the showcase has a few issues. Survey points are satisfactory however not extraordinary. At the point when seen off pivot, the showcase has an observable cool tone to it. This can't be seen when utilizing the telephone regularly yet difficult to miss when you take a gander at the showcase while the telephone is lying on a work area.

Besides, the presentation doesn't get especially brilliant. You have to completely maximize the brilliance when utilizing the telephone outside, and still, after all that, occasionally it's not perfect.

We likewise seen issues with duplicating darker grays. Dim goes up against an unmistakable green appearance, to a degree where you would think it is dim green as opposed to dull dim. This issue is likewise present on the Samsung Galaxy S9+ and the OnePlus 6 to some degree, so it could be an issue with Samsung boards when all is said in done.


The Pixel 3 XL accompanies Android 9 Pie out of the case. As of this composition, our gadget is still on the September security fix, which is frustrating as it's currently November and a few telephones like the OnePlus 6T have the November fix as of now.

The Pixel 3 XL accompanies what some would depict as "stock Android", despite the fact that it's definitely not. The Pixel telephones have dependably accompanied an intensely modified adaptation of Android and it just looks like stock Android at first glance.

Pixel Launcher

Beginning with the launcher, Google has done a few upgrades with Pie. You never again need to set a dull backdrop to make the application cabinet and notice shade seem dim and you can just physically set the shading for those from the subject setting.

Talking about backdrops, the Pixel 3 XL accompanies an entire group of new ones, including some more live backdrops that have moving items inside and furthermore themselves move when you collaborate with the homescreen.

Android 9 carries with it a critical change in route. The natural back, home and review catches are supplanted for simply the initial two and a few motions.

Swiping up from anyplace in the UI will now open the outline mode, where open applications are organized next to each other. In the event that you swipe once more, you get into the application cabinet. On the other hand, you can simply complete a long swipe up from the base to go specifically into the application cabinet from anyplace in the UI. While this places the application cabinet inside reach in a bigger number of spots than previously, a two swipe or long swipe signal makes it harder to get to the application cabinet than before from the place you generally get to it from, that is, the homescreen.

The back catch stays, as does the home catch. You can slide the home catch appropriate to rapidly return to the past application or press and hold and slide it around to move forward and backward in outline mode.

At times, a third catch will show up on the right. On the off chance that you have the revolution bolt empowered and tilt the telephone sideways, the telephone will demonstrate a pivot symbol, which incidentally gives you a chance to pivot the showcase and after that turn it back when you're managed without messing around with the revolution bolt setting.

Generally speaking, the new route choices don't appear to be an enhancement, and to a greater extent a stage sideways. A genuine motion based UI, for example, the one in iOS, would have been the legitimate advance forward. It would have additionally discarded the route bar for the last time, which keeps on consuming up significant room at the base of each Android telephone. In any case, Google's chilly pace in embracing a completely motion based UI just muddies the water, bringing about a UI that has one foot later on and one foot before.


The Pixel 3 XL keeps running on the Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 chipset that has been underclocked marginally. Rather than running at 2.8GHz on the execution centers and 1.8GHz on the proficiency centers, the 845 inside the Pixel 3 XL keeps running at 2.5GHz and 1.6GHz, individually. Google additionally settled on the choice to transport the Pixel 3 XL with just 4GB of memory and even the capacity choices top out at 128GB.

Specs don't really recount the entire story. The execution on the Pixel 3 XL is great due in no little part to the product enhancements done by Google. The UI is without slack and velvety all through.

In any case, a few specs do have an immediate impact on execution. The 4GB RAM, for this situation, is a noteworthy bottleneck. The telephone experiences serious difficulties keeping applications open out of sight. You can keep 4-5 applications open out of sight before the telephone comes up short on memory and begins closing them down.

Opening the Camera application specifically goes about as an unmistakable all catch for all applications in memory. Switch on the camera and even the last utilized application regularly gets flushed from memory. You don't even fundamentally need to take an image; simply open the Camera application and watch the applications murder themselves out of sight.

We are additionally not certain why Google constrained the capacity to simply 64GB and 128GB alternatives. The opposition is putting forth up to 512GB nowadays and a few organizations like Samsung even help microSD development that is not accessible on the Pixel telephones. Also, free cloud reinforcement isn't an answer; Google may offer boundless reinforcements for photographs and recordings from the telephone's camera however one could have different documents on the gadget -, for example, lossless music - that can take up a huge amount of capacity.

The Pixel 3 XL additionally tends to run somewhat hot. Ordinarily, it's not especially warm but rather it can warm up decently fast while utilizing certain applications. The warming gets especially terrible when utilizing the AR impacts that come pre-introduced in the Camera application, and the telephone gets so hot that it can never again keep up its execution and the video begins dropping edges. This was an issue with the past Pixel 2 too and it's frustrating to see this hasn't been settled yet, considering Google effectively showcases the AR includes in the Pixel Camera application.

The Pixel 3 XL has an arrangement of stereo speakers that is at any rate in part in charge of the enormous score and button on the telephone.

The speakers on the Pixel 3 XL sound great and get boisterous, however there are two or three issues. Most importantly, the speakers are unequal, with the speaker inside the indent yielding detectably less stable than the one inside the jaw. When you hold the telephone sideways it sounds like the left speaker is blocked or harmed as the distinction in volume levels is very serious.

Besides, the speakers cause the whole body of the telephone to vibrate. The issue is that the telephone vibrates an excessive amount of and this makes it exceptionally tiring to hold the telephone with the sound playing. Regardless of whether it's somebody talking in a YouTube video, the vibrations from the telephone get exhausting rapidly and makes you need to put the telephone down at the earliest opportunity. Furthermore, the telephone vibrates at all volume levels, so turning down the sound isn't a choice.

The sound quality from the speakers is great yet not the best we have heard. The vocals are extremely forthright, which makes them sound somewhat brutal and the sound isn't as adjusted as that from the 2018 iPhones. It gets, uproarious, however, and despite the fact that it doesn't sound especially great at most extreme volume, you have the alternative, in the event that you truly need to disturb individuals around you.

Concerning earphone sound, the telephone has no earphone jack yet accompanies a USB-C connector. The sound from the connector is adequate and we acknowledge Google giving it at everything except it's only one all the more thing to bear with you or recall where you kept. You likewise would prefer not to lose it as finding a substitution may not be simple, or shoddy.

The telephone comes with a couple of wired USB-C headphones. The speaker configuration is like the EarPods yet the link can be made to travel through the ear buds and modify fit so they don't tumble off. Tragically, the sound quality is bizarrely awful. The sound quality is far more terrible than what you get on the EarPods and path behind the packaged headphones offered by Samsung, LG and HTC. We sincerely feel Google ought to have forgotten them altogether.


The Pixel 3 XL has a 12MP f1.8 camera on the back with double pixel stage recognition self-adjust and optical picture adjustment. The camera is additionally fit for account 4K video at 30fps.

The default Camera application sees some positive enhancements over the underlying form from a year ago. The distinctive camera modes are currently spread out at the base, like the iOS camera application, and can be exchanged between by swiping sideways on the showcase. You just observe a few modes of course and the rest are inside the More alternative at the right.

At the best are the controls for clock, movement mode (Google's variant of Apple's Live View), white equalization and blaze settings. You can demonstrate HDR+ controls here, which gives you a chance to browse HDR+ off, HDR+ On, and HDR+ Advanced. On the off chance that you shroud this choice, the camera will utilize HDR+ On consistently.

One new component this year is the capacity to catch RAW pictures. The telephone will spare both JPEG and RAW records together, when the choice is empowered. 
 those who want to capture smoother videos or create slow motion movies like we have on the recent iPhones and some other devices, such as the OnePlus 6T.
Slow motion videos also look pretty good. Google doesn't give you resolution options but just has a 1/4x and 1/8x toggles in slow motion mode, which switches 
Battery Life

The Pixel 3 XL has a 3430mAh battery, which underpins USB-Power Delivery quick charging.

In our testing, the battery life on the telephone was just normal. Amid a normal day, we could get around 4-5 hours of screen on time, with around 18-20 hours of in general utilization before requiring another charge. We presume that huge showcase isn't helping the battery. The camera is additionally an enormous asset and utilizing it every now and again will likewise slaughter your battery quicker.

Battery use information

Lamentably, the Pixel 3 XL additionally accompanies one of the slowest "quick charging" arrangements available. The packaged 18W USB-PD charger feels molasses ease back contrasted with other quick charging arrangements, particularly the DASH charging on OnePlus telephones. 30 minutes of charging gives you just 25% charge. A hour of charging will give you about 45% battery. A full charge takes near three hours.

The charging is so amusingly moderate, the main thing slower is the 5W charger that accompanies the iPhones. You can get quicker charging on the iPhones by purchasing all the more intense chargers, so, all in all the charging speed is quicker than it is on the Pixel 3 XL, however with the Pixel you are screwed over thanks to this speed until the end of time.

Google's charging bend appears to be excessively traditionalist, likely in light of a legitimate concern for drawing out the life of the battery. In any case, it makes a snappy charge on this telephone a torment.

Google additionally now offers remote charging support on the Pixel 3 XL. Notwithstanding, that will be considerably slower, regardless of whether you go for the 10W models. Also, the Pixel gadgets bolster the full 10W charging just on Google's Pixel Stand, which costs $79. In examination, you can charge the new iPhones at full speed on any 10W quick remote charger.


The Pixel 3 XL is a blended pack of thoughts and executions. As an exhibit of Google's ability in AI, machine learning and computational photography, it's profoundly great. Things like Call Screen, Duplex, Super Res Zoom, Top Shot and the up and coming Night Sight are Google at its best. These things are a long ways in front of what any other person is doing in the business at this moment and Google is really sending these highlights today.

The Pixel 3 XL likewise does ordinary "telephone things" exceptionally well. It has a great showcase, the camera is sensational, the speakers are uproarious and the product encounter is to a great extent spotless and easy.

Be that as it may, in numerous different things it appears Google either didn't give careful consideration or simply couldn't have cared sufficiently less. The front is the minimum appealing of any telephone on special today. The matte glass back scrapes effortlessly. The showcase additionally has minor issues regarding the grayscale exactness, top brilliance and unintentional contacts. The speakers are boisterous however stable lopsided. The execution is massively hampered by the 4GB RAM and the 128GB greatest capacity isn't sufficient for a leader cell phone. The battery life is likewise not especially great and the quick charging arrangement is definitely not quick.

The Pixel 3 XL is likewise costly, paying little respect to which part of the world you get it. Google has dependably estimated the Pixel telephone as premium gadgets however with each passing year the offer drops further as you see different producers improving the situation for less cash while Google is relapsing somehow or another. And keeping in mind that organizations like Apple and Samsung likewise charge a pretty penny for their cell phones, both back their items with overall industry-driving after deals bolster. Apple specifically has a no-questions-approached substitution arrangement for items under guarantee and iPhones likewise will in general keep up their esteem extremely well in the second-hand showcase.

By and large, it's extremely hard to prescribe the Pixel 3 XL to anybody without numerous provisos. While it's as yet a decent telephone everything thought of you as, can show signs of improvement telephone by and large at that cost and you can assuredly get a telephone that does 90% of what the Pixel 3 XL does at around a large portion of the cost. At last, the offer is only not there and keeping in mind that it's hard to put a cost on the product headways that the Pixel telephones bring, we think Google additionally needs to begin improving the situation in different zones if it will keep estimating its telephones this high.
