Google Pixel 3 review
Google’s Pixel 3 family of handsets features Google’s vision of what a pure Android should look like in 2018.
If you want a smaller handset with a lot of power, you have relatively few choices. Google’s Pixel 3 is powerful and uncluttered compared to its competition, which makes it a great choice for those who don’t like larger phablet-style phones, although it shares many of the same issues as the larger Pixel 3XL.
Google’s smaller phone in the Pixel 3 family is more affordable and a rare example of a small and powerful handset.
- Good battery life.
- Camera works well.
- Powerful for a small phone.
- Android Pie onboard with updates to come.
- Memory management issues due to low RAM.
- Single lens is less flexible than competing handsets.
- Active Edge only works for Google Assistant.
- Choice of colours.
- Lacks headphone jack.
- Notch-free zone.
- Fingerprint sensor easier to hit on smaller phone.
- Still a single lens camera.
- AI-assisted photography can work well.
- Smaller phone body makes it easier to take snapshots.
- Snapdragon 845 provides enough power, but RAM is low.
- Memory management is very aggressive for background apps.
- Android Pie gives the Pixel 3 optimised performance.
- Active Edge isn’t all that active.
- Battery life is good for a small handset.
- Rapid charging with supplied adaptor.
- Wireless charging, and it’s even better with Pixel Stand.
- One of the best “small” Android phones you can buy.
