Wow it took you a whole month to put up a review and this is what we get? No lab tests? I don't care what your reasoning is, you could've taken another 15 days instead of putting up this crap opinion piece I can read in 100 other websites
Please do proper review, this is useless dumb review
-Awkwardly large body with slippery slides
-Back glass scuffs easily
-FUGLY NOTCH and chin take up significant space at front
-Display doesn't get bright enough
-Touchscreen constantly reacts to accidental touches around edges
-Camera has flicker under fluorescent lighting
-Unbalanced left and right speaker volume
-Low RAM bottlenecks performance
-Storage option maxes out at 128GB. Google, for the love of god, add the da*n microsd slot already as a CHOICE!! It's almost a decade since we weren't happy that you removed it since Nexus S!!
-No 4K 60 video mode for camera
-No 3.5mm jack since Pixel 2 Series as STANDARD (PLANNED OBSOLESCENCE)
-No microsd slot since Nexus S as STANDARD (PLANNED OBSOLESCENCE)
-Proprietary wireless charger (PLANNED OBSOLESCENCE)
-FORCED GESTURES-based UI. Google, give us an option to use software nav-bar keys which is straightforward and easy to use as a CHOICE!!
There, editor, fixed it for you.
Useless review, and although we keep requesting GSMArena not to do such fake reviews, they don’t seem to care.
No lab test at all. Worst review ever from gsmarena.
The review associated with this comment forum appeared just minutes ago, and there are already several comments. Editor's perhaps? I hope the Pixel 4 and 5 will be a whole lot better than 2 and 3.

This is one brand I can whole heartedly not recommend to anyone for the first few months. It's best to let Google work out the kinks.
128 GB not enough?? Why do you critisize that?
Even S9 has 64 Gb.
Gsmarena, "Most of the time, the 2x digital zoom images on the Pixel 3 XL display look very similar to optically 2x zoomed images on other phones"
Not true, I have looked at multiple full resolution comparisons from Anandtech and also from your previous Pixel 3 review and Google's digital zoom is much worse. I would say it's equivalent to 1.1x or 1.2x lossless zoom. When you say that you nearly don't notice a difference, then I guess you also don't see a difference between normal digital zoom and optical zoom. Don't forget that the Pixel 3 has a 27mm equivalent (not 26mm) camera, so 2x lossless zoom should have slightly more(!) details than iPhone Xs at 52mm.
Google's video zoom is much worse, too.
The only sensible reason I can think on for why Google released this phone was to make people realise how ugly a notch is. A phone designed to fail with the single purpose to kill the notch trend.
Stan, 12 Nov 2018Agree, GSMArena should do a full complete review not this half cook review.Yep
We can wait, theres no need to rush them.

Please, I don't care why you did it, just stop doing reviews without lab and battery tests! Stop making them useless!
And it doesn't matter, whether a phone 'deserve' a full test or not - we deserve it.
The review is very weak, lacks lab tests, and expresses subjective opinions, which are not supported by evidence. Please don't embarrass yourself and do a proper review.
