What's the wallpaper above the introduction section someone tell me please!
Nope, not convincing. You can't list "good battery life" on the "Pros" list. 69h endurance rating is a bad joke for the price tag (what'd you expect for a S845 with OLED powered by a 2915mAh?). "Awesome camera"... Really? All the software trickery won't make up for specs when it comes to the camera. OIS is good, but won't do wonders.
Doesn't sounds like an honest review, to be honest.
A good phone at the Â€250 - Â€300 price range, but nowhere near adequate for current prices. (£639 here in the UK). Much better (camera, screen and battery altogether) phones to be bought at the price.

If the phone is running exemplary... why you care about chipset frequencies? You know better than Google what is the needed frequencies?
Do you buy numbers or user experience and results?
Do you buy a phone just to press the "Test" button in Antutu?
If you want numbers... go to Huawei... first 7nm... 50% better performance compared to iPhone XS... this kind of advertising (FALSE advertising).
Dolanescu, 13 Nov 2018why not underclock the 845?Because you're getting less preformance. "Duh!". why use the best chip of Qualcomm if in the end you're lowering the peak preformance!?
Kiyasuriin, 31 Oct 2018Very disappointing endurance. And NEVER EVER underclock the S845. . .why not underclock the 845?
Lyndino, 05 Nov 2018I feel someone needs to tell you that no one gives a shit about the 808 PureView. As good as t... moreYeah, that's really just your opinion or the opinion of typical customer sheeps. I'm sure you also think that Instagram is better than flickr and that your + $1000 phone replaces a real camera because it costs more than that. Those profit loving companies like Facebook, Google and Apple need customers like you very much.
Bad phone, it is ridiculous the score it gets with all these shortcomings. Huawei Mate 20 pro is so much better, even Xiaomi Mi8 is better which is much cheaper. Lots of better alternatives including iPhones, I don't really get the reason pixel get all the attention, they are just mediocre in everything.
Entire review is full of apology for all the shortcomings. Compare this to review of the hauwei mate 20 and 20 pro.
need help, in the audio quality section they said audio quality is below average for a flagship, is this all dependent on the USB-C dongle? or is this more from the phone?
so for example if I get a third party USB C dongle with a better built in DAC, the phone will be better sounding?
google pixel 3 review
Very nice review by you. I really liked your review.
Such a shame! How dare Google asking for that price? Most unimpressive and unwanted award goes to Google Pixel 3/XL, for the price you can get nearly two phone with Snapdragon 845, for example Oneplus 6T and LG G7 etc. don't find anything special about it, Google is thinking that it will become apple by setting price like it? working with mobile retailer and not a single person buying pixel from us since announcement

More to a phone than a huge ugly bump for a nice photo. But that's just my opinion.
Schlafwandler, 04 Nov 2018The leading camera? If you follow the reviews of paid YouTubers and blogs it was "fantastic" a... morewell silly argument as businesses have to make profit otherwise they don't survive.

If you follow the reviews of paid YouTubers and blogs it was "fantastic" and "brilliant", yes. If I compare it with the results of Nokia 808 or even Nokia 950 it´s just average picture quality. Googles HDR+ had strong artefacts with my Pixel 1 and 2 in lowlight and it´s still noisy with Pixel 3.
I´m not talking about Chinese companies, I´m not interested in those companies. I have general criticism about this industry. Google was lazy because before P20 Pro there was no competition? If true, this shows exactly that those companies are not interested in progress. They are interested in profits, profits, profits for their shareholders.
I'm digging the design, It's pretty much a shrunken version of the pixel 2 xl and sony xz3. Very clean and minimal. Deffo the best selfie camera I've seen on a phone, rear camera is on par with other flagships it's to close to call this year.
Schlafwandler, 02 Nov 2018This phone shows the fraud of smartphone industry and those internet giants very good. Basical... moreYou may not like the same camera set-up being used 2 years in a row but it was the leading camera set-up of last year. And as for sticking with a tried / true system they didn't need to overhaul the camera. Now that Huawei improved on the p20 with the mate 20 and the iPhones take gorgeous photos I'm sure Google will once again put some r&d into the 'next camera to have' for the next pixel phone.
Also, you can't really compare the expensive flagship phones (Pixel, iPhone, S9, Mate20[partially]) with the inexpensive chinese phones just because they run SD845 chips. Build quality and top components go a long way.
Pixel 3 especially Pixel 3 XL is beyond pathetic. I don't know what weed the R&D is smoking to come up with overpriced crap like this. Their mobile department should be obliterated once and for all. The legacy of Nexus line is long gone.
I would rather buy a much cheaper OP6T or any SD845 Xiaomi phone and root it.
This phone shows the fraud of smartphone industry and those internet giants very good. Basically the same phone than Pixel 2 with other screen - but they charge again even more than last year..
Best example is the camera: We now have the same camera quality for years now. Google has billions of money that they could use for development and they own parts of HTC. But they use the exactly same camera hardware of last year. It´s a joke. There´s no real progress because they don´t use bigger, better sensors. Old Nokia phones had much better camera tech than those overpriced Pixels and iPhones. Stop buying such cashcows! Those companies maybe only change when their sales drop down more and more.
Disappointed by the new digital zoom, it can't even handle 2x which means that it likely only has an advantage in 1.1-1.9x where the competition has no such algorithm and no optical solution covering the range either.
However the night mode, even in alpha, is highly impressive. It's for sure that P20P's night mode couldn't have retained such fine detail compared to non-night mode, as for the Mate20P there's no way to say for certain except with a head-on comparison.
