Will you be getting Google's new Pixel 3 phone?

Samsung is trolling Google over the notch on its new Pixel phone CNET Asks: Will you be getting Google's new Pixel 3 phone?

Those leaks also revealed that the Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL would feature a single camera on the back and two on the front, and exposed Google's new artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning (ML) camera tricks before Google's announcement. The feature of all these devices is that they have increased artificial intelligence. According to IDC research firm, Pixel's share reached 0.53% and then dropped to only 0.14%.

And Samsung started trolling the Pixel 3 and the ugly notch on the XL model as soon as Google unveiled it earlier this week. The third-generation Pixel will be released initially in ten countries (compared to six that Pixel 2 released a year ago). But once again, the Pixel 3's photography prowess all comes down to Google's clever software. Google doesn't have a dual-lens camera on the back of its new phones though, so the company's engineers created an enhanced digital zoom feature that's meant to provide zoomed photos that are just as clear as photos captured using optical zoom. Pixel Slate ($ 599) is based on the Chrome OS operating system and not on Android, and has a removable keyboard similar to Microsoft Surface. If youre not really blown away by the Pixel 3 XL and its large notch or if you find its $799 starting price too high this could be a nice option if youre due for a new phone at Verizon.

The iPhone XR and the Pixel 3 have almost identical rear cameras from a hardware standpoint.

In terms of design, both phones employ a metal frame with glass fronts and backs - these are required to enable wireless charging. If Google used DxOMark reviews to tell us that the Pixel and Pixel 2 were the best mobile cameras in the world, applying the same standards to the Pixel 3 and its single-lens shooter seems only fitting.

Maradona: It's Useless Making A Leader Of Messi
The Messi outburst was a different narrative to the one he took when Maradona praised the Barcelona star at the start of this week.

"Super Res Zoom" will give you better close-up photos without losing the detail.

Via Reddit, we're pointed to a quick test that was posted on Twitter by a blogger the day after Google's Pixel 3 event. The gulf in battery size between the two phones isn't a new thing; Android devices tend to have bigger batteries, but Apple's deep degree of optimisation helps its phones overcome this issue, to a certain degree. The test couldn't have been simpler.

I pre-ordered the Pixel 3 XL today. There's a lot to love about the Pixel 3 ... The image below shows the result from the iPhone XS on the left and the result from the Pixel 3 on the right.
