Google Pixel 3 XL Unboxing, Setup and First Impressions

30 days ago   |   By PhoneDog

Google appears to have fixed many of the issues that plagued the Pixel 2 XL, such as the blue tint and black smear display problems. The most glaring fault, if you want to call it that, is the addition of an unusually large notch. Thankfully, you can hide it via the settings, and it does serve a purpose: it houses one of the front-firing stereo speakers and two front-facing camera sensors. Google Google Pixel 3 XL

Google Pixel 3 software makes display corners rounder in the name of symmetry

Google Pixel 3 software makes display corners rounder in the name of symmetry

30 days ago   |   By Phone Arena

Much like the Pixel 3 XL, the regular Google Pixel 3 makes use of a new display that has been praised significantly due to its improvements over last year's Pixel 2 panel. However, from the looks of things, Google isn't entirely happy with it.
As spotted by a Reddit user, it appears Google is using software trickery to make the Pixel 3's display corners slightly rounder. This appears to help the panel better match the shape of the smartphone itself and also brings it in line with Google's latest Material Design guidelines. Thus, ...

It appears Google is rounding the corners of the Pixel 3 display with software. While Google hasn't released an official response yet, popular opinion seems to be that the software rounding brings the display in line with Google's new Material Design. It also helps the display corners better match the phone's rounded corners. One of the most significant parts of Google's new design philosophy is rounded corners. Buttons, windows and several other aspects of Google's Material Design have rounded corners.  The Pixel 3 is no exception. A Redditor spotted the subtle adjustment when he...

Google Pixel 3 XL plays HDR video in 1440p at 60fps

30 days ago   |   By Phone Arena

There are a few things you'll find on the Google Pixel 3 XL that you won't see on the Pixel 3, Pixel 2 or the Pixel 2 XL. Besides the notch, of course. One is 1440p HDR video playback at 60 frames per second. You won't find this on the Pixel 3 or Pixel 2 because both sport a 1080p screen, and it is not offered on last year's Pixel 2 XL. All of these phones max out HDR playback at 1080p60fps.
You might recall that last year Google removed 1440p HDR video playback from the YouTube app as there were complaints about dropped frames. This year, the Alphabet unit brought back 1440p ...
