The "1-Minute" Review
Google’s Pixel 3 XL is the latest release in their lineup known for powerful cameras and access to the latest Android features available.
While it shares many of its specifications with its smaller sibling -- the Google Pixel 3 -- there are a few key differences to note.
The first is the display size. Measuring 6.3-inches and sporting a resolution of 1440-by-2960, it offers excellent detail and color reproduction according to reviewers.
However, unlike the smaller Pixel 3, the larger display on the Pixel 3 XL includes a notch at the top to house the dual front-facing cameras. While display notches have been a much-debated issue in 2018, the notch on this phone is particularly large. Reviewers found this frustrating as notifications were often cramped and the notch was harder to ignore when using full-screen applications or streaming video.
The only other difference comes in the battery. The phone includes a beefier 3430mAh battery. While reviewers found that the battery helped keep the phone on par with its smaller sibling, many still wished the battery life was better. Still, it will be enough to last the day during typical use.
