Google limits Pixel 3 to 5W charging standard for third-party wireless chargers

29 days ago   |   By MobileSyrup

The Pixel 3 and 3 XL are the first of Google's handsets to include Qi wireless charging. With the Pixel Stand , Google's new smartphone charges at 10W. However, it seems Google is limiting the Pixel 3's charging speed to 5W with all third-party wireless chargers. According to an Android Police reader, even with a 10W Anker wireless charger, the Pixel 3 still only receives a maximum of 500mA with the charger. Android Police also reached out to Google who told the publication, due to a “secure handshake,” the Pixel 3 charges at 10W on the Pixel Stand, but that third-party wireless chargers...

Google will fix an issue that caused some photos taken with Google Camera on the Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL to not properly save. A Google spokesperson provided this statement: “We will be rolling out a software update in the coming weeks to address the rare case of a photo not properly saving.”
The issue also affected a small number of Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL phones in addition to other Android devices like Samsung's Galaxy phones, Moto Z and E models, and the Nexus 5X.
The bug seems to have been caused by the Google Camera app shutting down immediately after taking a photo before it had a...

The Pixel 3 wasn't just beaten by Apple's iPhone XS in this speed test, it was demolished

The Pixel 3 wasn't just beaten by Apple's iPhone XS in this speed test, it was demolished

29 days ago   |   By TheBoyGeniusReport

I opened my in-depth Pixel 3 review by wondering exactly what Google's strategy is with its Pixel phones. Google devotes as much time and other resources to developing its flagship phones as other top vendors, and yet Pixel sales are consistently far lower than rival flagships for a few important reasons. Among them are the facts that Google insists on entering into exclusive agreements with Verizon in the US, and that global availability has been limited. For those reasons and more, Google sells fewer Pixel phones over their lifetime than Apple sells iPhones in a single opening weekend.

Review: Google Pixel 3 and 3 XL are the best smartphones you can buy right now

29 days ago   |   By Business Insider

The Google Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL phones are the best smartphones you can buy right now - they're even better than Apple's iPhone XS and XS Max.
Google makes up for mediocre hardware with an amazing camera and a pure Android software experience.
In the video above, Business Insider's Antonio Villas-Boas shares his thoughts on Google's latest smartphones .
Following is a transcript of the video.
In a lot of respects, the Pixel 3 phones are kind of generic. You know, they don't have an S Pen stylus, they don't have three lenses on the back. It doesn't have any crazy outstanding features...

The Google Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL are the first of so far only three generation of Pixel phones to support wireless charging. Even better, it can support up to 10 watts wireless power, which constitutes as “fast” wireless charging. However, that might be off to a rocky start if this new tidbit about that fast wireless charging feature...

The iPhone XS Max crushes the Google Pixel 3 XL in a speed test

The iPhone XS Max crushes the Google Pixel 3 XL in a speed test

29 days ago   |   By GSMArena

Running benchmarks on smartphones is a good way to see which one does the number crunching faster, but that doesn't always match the real life performance. That's why it's always good to see a speed test, which aims to come closer to your everyday use patterns.
As you can see, the Pixel 3 XL was able to keep the pace with the iPhone XS Max on the first lap but the latter just obliterated Google's flagship phone in the second one. It seems that the Pixel 3 XL struggled to keep the bigger apps open or cached in the background.
And even though the Pixel 3 XL and the XS Max both have...
