Need a good reason to get a Google Pixel 3 XL? Read on.
[This is a really brief examination focused on a display.]
With a new 6.3-inch Pixel ($899), Google got a OLED arrangement right. This time ditching a Pixel 2 XL’s pale colors and blue tint. That creates for an roughly ideal phone.
The original sin
I had a Pixel 2 XL from day one. Many (if not all) of a initial Pixel 2 XLs were injured by an defective OLED display, pleasantness of retailer LG Display. we had dual Pixel 2 XLs with awful screens, i.e., pale colors and excessive blue change (aka, a blue tint) — a latter generally apparent when noticed from an angle.
Finally, on my third try, we got a Pixel 2 XL with a good shade full with vibrant* colors. But that came months after a Pixel 2 XL’s recover and on late builds of a phone.
Thankfully Google bound that problem once and for all with a Pixel 3 XL’s Samsung-supplied display. No some-more odd on builds. No some-more pale colors or blue shift. Buy a Pixel 3 XL and we get a good display. Period. Rivaling a peculiarity we get on a Samsung Galaxy S9 or Note 9.
Another fix: Android on Pixel keeps removing better
Until Google’s Pixel phones (I’ve used all 3 generations), Android didn’t have a fit and finish of a iPhone/iOS. But Android married with a Pixel 3 XL is so liquid and quick that a knowledge is as good as my iPhone XS Max — and that’s observant a lot.
Combine that with a top-notch design/materials and another good Pixel camera (especially in low light) and we have a inestimable ascent from a Pixel 2 XL.
*The arrangement itself was better, irrespective of Google program tweaks such as the “saturated” switch in a modernized settings.
