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.
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.
What on earth is going on with your review format?
For consumers to make any sensible comparison or buying choice we need the same details and tests for handsets. I use my phone a lot for audio and one man's perfection is another's bass-riddled mess!
When are you going to revert to your proper review format and stop these attrocious away from the office reviews that serve no purpose whatsoever???!
This phone doesn't deserve a proper review. It's a trash phone and most of us are already aware of that fact.
I don't like these abbreviated reviews. GSMArena stands out amongst the rest due to their fantastic lab tests.
