Verizon retains exclusive on Google's Pixel 3

Verizon retains exclusive on Google's Pixel 3”

The Pixel 3 faces continued limited sales in the United States since Google again signed an exclusive distribution deal with wireless carrier Verizon Communications Inc (VZ.N) that means the device will get little marketing from other carriers. With Night Sight, you can take bright, detailed, colourful shots around the campfire, in a moonlit forest, or a selfie as you're headed out of that dimly-lit club. Screen Call will allow Google Assistant to answer the phone for you, warning the caller of what it is and offering to send a transcript to you.

In Playground, you can make photos, selfies, and videos come to life by adding your favourite superheroes, animated stickers, and fun captions. There were rumors of a secret third phone, but of course, that was nonsense.

Vokoun is hoping that Pixel Slate will be the preferred computing device for "the on-the-go-professional who wants a device to get work done, but has downtime to watch videos". But the one you can get right now is quite expensive, coming in at $199. It's hassle-free, you don't have to think about back-ups. Executives even lined up photos taken with Apple's new iPhone XS with ones shot on the Pixel 3 to bolster Google's claims that it's got the best phone camera on the market. To scan and translate text, find similar styles of clothing, or identify popular plants and animals, you can now long press in the Pixel 3 camera to easily invoke Lens. Three years ago, the company unveiled its first Pixel Phone and Google Home smart speaker.

The Google Assistant is also baked into Pixel 3 to help you find answers and control your phone and compatible smart home devices-all with a simple squeeze or just by using your voice. Believe it or not, it can make calls for you, too.

All said, we're preferring the iPad's Smart Keyboard to the Pixel Slate's Keyboard, on account of its feedback and travel as well as how it connects with the device. It is a wireless charger that props the Pixel up so you can see the screen. It's been two years since Google Home launched, and now that the company's smart speaker line-up is four products strong, Google says its working to create not only a more connected home but a more "thoughtful" one. The $599 iteration of the Pixel Slate will have an Intel Celeron processor with 4GB of RAM and 32GB of onboard storage.

Google Pixel Slate seems focused on providing useful productivity features mixed with a traditional Chrome OS experience that makes surfing the web and consuming other media extremely simple. If you set an alarm, your screen will gently brighten over 15 minutes before your alarm goes off, mimicking the sunrise and helping you wake up naturally. The new generation of Pixel phones features an improved camera that's backed by Google's AI. It will also run Android apps and Linux software out of the box. Powered by Android 9 Pie, Pixel 3 comes with the latest Android operating system. Pixel 3 comes with dual front-firing speakers tuned by a GRAMMY-winning music producer to turn your phone into a powerful speaker.

The Pixel Slate is one handsome tablet. The Pixel 3 starts shooting a second before you press the button and a second after - looking for the moments where everyone has their eyes open and facing the camera. Meanwhile, the Google Pixel 2 XL cost $849 for the 64GB model and $949 for the 128GB variant.
