Do they have packaging to compete again with the best of the year in many more sections than in the photographic aspect? We will check with the comparison of the new Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL vs iPhone XS, iPhone XS Max, Galaxy S9 and Note 9, Xiaomi Mi 8, Huawei P20 Pro and other top of the high level of this 2018.
After Apple’s iPhone , the big “guaranteed” technology event within the smartphone world is the arrival of the new Pixel .
Thanks to the good taste of mouth that left us the models of last year , especially in relation to the camera, the new Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL arrive with more expectation than ever to the market.
The best smartphones of 2018
The last big Google terminals are here. That means that the trio that we have left to compete to be the best of the year is practically complete. These are the best smartphone candidates of this 2018and that we are going to compare with the new Google Pixel 3.

- iPhone XS Max
- Samsung Galaxy Note 9

New Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL: more screen and “notch”
Although the new Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL maintain the essence of the family in the overall design of the device, especially as regards the back and the touch of color (this time very subtle), there are interesting new features in its appearance.
The two screen diagonals remain as options, something that more and more manufacturers choose first line, but now we have more screen to choose, especially with the 6.3 inches of the Pixel 3 XL model .A contained diagonal and the option to go over 6 inches: this is the new Google Pixel 3
As has happened with almost all high end terminals that have grown on screen, the design has had to adapt to reduce frames. And a ” collateral damage ” such as the notch , comes by surprise to the largest of Google terminals.
If you are not from that addition or want to remove it via software, there is still the option to choose the Pixel 3 to dry, which, with 5.5 inches has obviated that recuse so used this year at the expense of maintaining larger dimensions for the frame higher.

At the level of dimensions, Google makes it great in weight without that it means giving up some batteries with a capacity that seems sufficient.
The Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL maintain the OLED technology (HDR compatible) for your screen, but this year it seems that there will be no problems around it since it is not a P-OLED version.
In addition, the more diagonal model has a resolution of 1,440 x 2,960 pixels with which it achieves a large density figure: 523 ppi . In spite of everything, that density is something smaller than the one that Pixel 2 XL offered last year.

True to a single camera that promises to be even better
With the Snapdragon 845 per flag, it could not be less, the Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL attack their entry in the high-end of 2018, perhaps losing in other data of its purest technical sheet if we compare with the best prepared rivals. Highlight the amount of RAM, which is bounded in 4 GB , and that accompanies two possible configurations of internal storage: 64 or 128 GB.
That combination of processor and RAM taking into account the cleanliness of the operating system will give you plenty to stay among the most powerful in the market this 2018, but with the price it has, the user might expect more packaging in that part of its list of specifications .

Where Google does not make any concession is in his idea that he does not need a double back camera to succeed in the high end. Last year he showed it in the photographic comparison and this 2018 intends to repeat as a phone with better camera despite having a single sensor. His arguments are in the size of the photoreceptors (1.4 μm) and especially in the part of processing, where last year showed that it goes to the head.
Curiously, Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL do bring a double sensor in the camera for selfies. There is a telephoto main with f1.8 and another “secondary” with aperture f2.2 but wide angle (107 °). Both sensors are 8 MP resolution.
