How different is the Google Pixel 3 XL from the Pixel 2 XL

The giant tech company, Google, has successfully charmed its loyalists through its well-engineered smartphones. It has always been at the top of its game and has now launched the flagship smartphone, Google Pixel 3 XL. The smartphone is powered by AI and makes for the most enjoyable experience. Also touted to have the best smartphone camera, does it deliver as well as its expectations?

The Google Pixel 3 XL is promising, and the Android Pie phone comes in three different colors i.e. clearly white, just black, and not pink. With a big-built and color-rich OLED screen, the flagship phone is the successor to the much-lauded Google Pixel 2 XL. The Pixel 2 XL managed to create quite a stir while being packed with some great features. Does the Pixel 3 XL build off that success? It is on the surface only that you see a difference in the notch of the phone; however, there is much more going on. If you’re wondering what sets the Google Pixel 3 XL apart from its predecessor, here are some features to note:

Design: The Google Pixel 3 XL does not stray away too far from the Pixel 2 XL in terms of design. However, the new flagship is made of all glass, as opposed to the metal and glass combination of the 2 XL. Both the phones are built to be water resistant, but owing to the IPX8 rating of the 3 XL, one can expect better performance on that front. There is also an obvious change in the sizable appearance, as the weight and the dimensions differ.

Camera: The Pixel phones have received much appreciation for their camera features, and as expected, the Pixel 3 XL aims higher. Just like the Google Pixel 2 XL, the Pixel 3 XL features a single-lens 12.2 MP f/1.8 rear camera, but there are some features that take it a notch higher. There are new modes to look out for, and the most admirable of the lot is the “Top Shot” feature. The front camera comes with an upgrade, with the 3 XL employing the dual-lens front camera for more versatility.

OS and power: The Google Pixel 3 XL steps above its predecessor, as it features an octa-core Snapdragon 845 chipset that is paired with 4 GB RAM. While the RAM remains the same, there is a difference in the chipset. The phone also comes with notable features such as Active Edge, which cannot be seen in the phones of other brands. What’s more? The Pixel 3 XL also aids in data security with the newly added feature, i.e., Titan security module.

The Google Pixel 3 XL engraves a greater place for itself and brings with it several refreshing changes. It’s not wrong to admit that the upgraded features are invariably substantial.
