Google Pixel 3

Google Pixel 3 Google’s Pixel 3 comes near the end of a year that has been packed with stunning smartphones. There was a general air of skepticism ahead of the release. The widely leaked design looked dated next to the iPhone XS, the spec sheet appeared lacking next to the Galaxy Note 9, and the single lens camera seemed limited next to the P20 Pro, but the Pixel 3 proves that there are still some things Apple, Samsung, and Huawei can learn from Google’s unique approach to the smartphone market.

Starting at $799, the Pixel 3 is $150 more expensive than its predecessor, making its sibling, which starts at $899, less of a leap.
