The Google px 3 XL has one of the best cameras with a sizeable screen, a one-two punch that offers a wide, color-rich display that shoots photos your friends won’t believe came from a smartphone.

While other handsets have been released khổng lồ steal the crown, like the Samsung Galaxy S10 Plus, the Huawei P30 Pro, và the OnePlus 7 Pro, the pixel 3 XL arguably remains the best camera phone.

The 12.2MP rear-facing lens is the primary reason lớn consider this apk Pie-packing handset, & the two front-facing cameras – the extra lens helps for group selfies – are the second & third reasons. Google’s phone holds the lead in picture-taking over everything we’ve tested so far when it comes to sheer usability - point, snap & get a great photo.

It"s worth remembering the px 3 XL isn"t Google"s newest large handset – the affordable pixel 3a XL came out alongside the px 3a, & the newer flagship px 4 XL came out with the pixel 4. The latter handsets improve on a few of the features of the px 3 XL, with an extra camera, newer chipset and bigger battery, so it"s worth considering if you"re looking for a new smartphone.

The pixel 3 XL has identical cameras, dual front-facing speakers, Snapdragon 845 chipset, and 4GB of RAM as the fits-in-one-hand Google pixel 3. But the XL version has the edge on its smaller sibling with a bigger 6.3-inch bezel-reduced OLED screen và higher-capacity 3,430mAh battery.

Typically we prefer bigger screens, but the px 3 XL has a hard-to-ignore notch cut out at the đứng top of the display - something not only far more sizeable than that in the px 3 but also far deeper than the iPhone XS Max notch.

That"s a kiến thiết quirk – controversial among pixel fans – which is meant lớn offer a little more room for notification icons, the time, & the battery life percentage, in snippets flanking the selfie cameras và speaker housed in a cut-out in the display"s top-center.

Google px 3 XL specs

It does give you more screen, sure, but not lớn the extent that the 6.3-inch diagonally measured spec suggests. Khổng lồ us, the 6.3-inch Samsung Galaxy S9 Plus & 6.4-inch lưu ý 9 screens feel a bigger & more immersive, and the forthcoming Samsung Galaxy S10 & Galaxy S10 Plus promise khổng lồ mainstream the punch hole camera for even more screen real estate.

Google’s kiến thiết approach is more functional than fashionable, favoring its selfie twin cameras with a bit of asymmetrical screen distraction.

The Google px 3 XL ends up being the best option for people who want photos as flawless as they come on a smartphone, & are already used lớn a wielding sizable handset. It’s hard khổng lồ downsize, even if the tighter dimensions of the 5.5-inch px 3 are a better fit for most people.

It doesn’t have everything – there’s no microSD thẻ slot or tai nghe jack – but if you’re willing khổng lồ embrace the notch design, you’ll get consistently great photos paired with a fairly big screen.

Google px 3 XL price và availability

The Google px 3 XL release date was October 18, 2018 in the US, and November 1, 2018 in the UK và Australia, & it launched thereafter is Canada, France, Germany, Japan, India, Ireland, Italy, Singapore, Spain, và Taiwan.

At launch, the Google px 3 XL price was $899 (£869, AU$1,349) SIM-free for the 64GB storage variant, & $999 (£969, AU$1,499) for the maxed-out 128GB configuration,

It was a small price hike from the Google pixel 2 XL by $50 / £70 / AU$50, yet cheaper than the iPhone XS Max by $250 / £230/ AU$450, but it can now be picked up for much less thanks to px 3 XL deals.

The newer Google px 4 XL price is a little cheaper (in most regions) than the px 3 XL launch price, at $899 / £829 / AU$1,279for the 64GB of storage mode và $999 / £929 / AU$1,429 for 128GB. Of course, the older device has been discounted now though, so it"ll remain a more affordable phone.


The Google pixel 3 XL doesn’t push điện thoại design in a revolutionary new direction like the new Huawei View 20, but it does see some satisfying change over last year’s pixel 2 XL. Gone is the glass-and-aluminum back in favor of an all-glass two-tone look. It’s made of shiny glass at the top & a textured matte glass finish for the lower 80%.

You get a more seamless transition between the two textures with the soft-touch glass back made of the same Corning Gorilla Glass 5 that protects the front screen. There’s an aluminum frame that binds the front & back pieces of glass together – the only bit of metal you’ll see.

The px 3 XL fits into one hand, but takes two hands to lớn operate and it’s a little more slippery lớn hold than the pixel 2 XL. The difference isn’t Earth (or phone) shattering, though we did over up preferring the tighter dimensions of the standard Google pixel 3 for this reason.

The all-glass design has two benefits. First, LTE signals travel more easily through a glass phone than an aluminum-backed smartphone. That’s going khổng lồ become important as phone makers & carriers try khổng lồ claim superior 5G speeds in 2019. Second, wireless charging is a part of Google’s hardware ecosystem again, something we haven’t seen since the plastic Nexus 6.

You’ll find smoother corners on the Google pixel 3 XL – everything has been rounded off và flattened, giving Google’s Material thiết kế software ethos a foothold within real life hardware. The frame edges are polished & the rear fingerprint sensor is flatter.

The smoother thiết kế won’t be enough to lớn wow you next to other big phones. This doesn’t have an elegantly curved screen like the Samsung Galaxy note 9 and the bottom chin stands out next khổng lồ the iPhone XS Max. Notch or no notch, Google’s kiến thiết isn’t winning any awards.

But the pixel 3 XL is more functional: It has two selfie cameras, dual front-facing speakers, and Active Edge, allowing you to lớn squeeze the sides of the frame to trigger Google Assistant. We prefer this over a dedicated AI button, something that annoys us about Samsung và LG’s new phones with dedicated, often-mispressed AI buttons.

Just know that the px 3 XL doesn’t have a standard 3.5mm headphone jack (exactly lượt thích the pixel 2 XL), though it does come with USB-C earbuds in the box this year. You’re also not going khổng lồ find a microSD card slot anywhere within the design. The 64GB and 128GB internal storage sizes are mix in stone once you order them.

There are three muted pixel 3 XL colors: Clearly White, Just Black và a pinkish Not Pink. We got two reactions from our Clearly White review unit: that it was the most sophisticated hue or that is looked a little cheap and plasticky. Everyone liked the hint of fresh mint màu sắc on the power nguồn button, a pleasing dab of color that’s exclusive to lớn the Clearly trắng version.

Screen, notch and bezel

The Google px 3 XL has a sizable 6.3-inch OLED screen with a 18.5:9 aspect ratio, a QHD+ resolution, & HDR support with true black levels. It’s a higher-quality screen compared lớn the problematic P-OLED px 2 XL screen we found khổng lồ be desaturated and leave ghosting burn-in.

There’s also more display here & less bezel, with an 83% screen-to-body ratio (up from 76%), thanks lớn a 6.3-inch screen (up from 6 inches). The bigger screen fits in basically the same dimensions of 158 x 76.7 x 7.9mm. That’s some nice progress from the engineers at Google.

It’s two steps forward và one step back when you see the notch cut out at the top, however. No one we talked to liked it. A few people said they didn’t mind it too much. That’s as positive as things got. For us, when testing it day-to-day, we found it harder to ignore the deep notch when browsing websites and watching videos. It’s not as easy lớn overlook as the iPhone X notch.

But wait, we found some software tricks to fix this issue: Google’s hidden developer tools menu offers the ability lớn hide the notch, though the notification icons, time, và battery life percentage are pushed further down. A third-party app, Nacho Notch, is better. It puts all of that information within the blackened notch space. Why this isn’t a part of the phone by mặc định is perplexing.

The notch cut out shouldn’t be a dealbreaker if you want the best-in-class pixel 3 camera & desire your phone at the biggest form size possible. The software tricks certainly help.
