Samsung Takes a Jab At Google Pixel 3 and Its Gigantic Notch

New Google Home App

So it's unsurprising Google is continuing its campaign to dethrone Amazon Alexa. It started way back with the Google Nexus 5 which I bought second hand in Hong Kong (where I lived before Singapore) after trading in my Samsung Galaxy Note 2, which I had in turn bought after trading in my wonderful HTC One X just a few months earlier.

In comparison, the Pixel 2 came with a 12.2-megapixel camera armed with Google's smart HDR+, which made for particularly great low-light shots and maintained a flawless colour saturation. This new feature, like many others, uses Google's efforts in machine learning to predict what you want, need, or should say while replying or typing an email. The hardwire connection should make for a more reliable gaming experience on your Pixel device. Moreover, the 7-inch touchscreen shows is able to show basic information like the temperature, date, calendar and traffic updates.

Get ready for Call Screen to answer phone calls for you, transcribe conversation, and let you know if the call is worth answering or not.

In this guide we'll go over some of the best new Google Pixel 3 features that are coming to your Pixel and Pixel 2 XL. At the same time, tablets don't possess enough computational power to run heavy software on them. The Molecular Display really does make pictures, videos and games come to life since it packs 293 pixels per inch, an impressive six million pixels in total. Apple's iPhone XR, which will be open for pre-order on October 19, is Pixel 3′s closest rival in terms of camera system. iPhone XR also comes with a single lens camera system but it can also take portrait mode photos with bokeh effect via a dedicated chip within the phone. This might seem like a cop-out, but the camera is now paired with Qualcomm's upgraded Snapdragon 845 processor. It also has two USB-C ports on either side and is just 7mm thick and weighs 1.6 lbs. There's not one, but two 8-megapixel front-facing snappers this time around. It starts at $599, with an additional $200 for the keyboard folio, making the $800 investment look worthwhile for a state-of-the-art gadget. Although it boasts wireless quick-charging (if you buy a separate Pixel Stand or use any Qi charger), 11 hours may not last a while working day, and that's benched using Android 9 Pie's benefits as the Pixel 3 comes with Pie straight out the box.

The Chromecast is back and it's more powerful than ever. Google declined to address that further Tuesday, though executives emphasized privacy and security throughout the event in NY.

Some small design changes have been made with new glossy colours. We're assuming the original Pixel will get it too, which is great.
