During its, Google announced the and -- two budget phones that kick off the company's new endeavor to make cheaper, more affordable phones. The devices are essentially reworked versions of the Pixel 3 and the larger , which originally debuted in October 2018.
Seven months after its launch, the Pixel 3 was the best Android phone of 2018 and remains one of the top phones you can get nowadays. It truly is awesome, and along with the, it includes the best camera you can currently get in a phone.With only a single rear camera, the Pixel 3 pulled off photo tricks that its competition at the time, including the , and . And with Night Sight, it can brighten up even the darkest of scenes without a flash so well that I'm not entirely convinced it isn't witchcraft.
但像素的另一半是谷歌的软件和它根深蒂固的整个生态系统。Google 希望您使用"助手"，并希望您将它与其他 Google 服务（如 Gmail 和日历）集成。有时它很有用，尤其是助理代表您接听电话的新能力。（是的，它听起来是笨手笨脚的，但它确实有助于打击我生活中的垃圾邮件电话祸害。恒定的通知和提示和提示变得烦人，但幸运的是，你可以关闭这些功能。
So is an outstanding camera (), wireless charging, water resistance and Google's user experience worth the $799 (£739, AU$1,199) starting price for the 64GB Pixel 3? If you don't care about expandable storage, I say yes. At face value, the phone costs as much as the and it's cheaper compared to the iPhone XS' $1,000 (£999, AU$1,629) baseline price. The identically priced 128GB iPhone XR is a tempting alternative, but its camera just doesn't measure up to the Pixel 3.
If you do want extra storage though,. The S9 ends up being the better value since it can hold up to 400GB of extra data, and the 256GB iPhone is actually cheaper than the Pixel 3 at any capacity in terms of price per gig. At any rate, if all these phones are out of your budget, but you love the Pixel 3's camera, consider the Pixel 3A instead.
但是，如果你愿意支付，像素3是优秀的。它可能看起来不像iPhone XS或Galaxy S9那么豪华，但它享受额外的福利，来自作为谷歌手机，其中包括无限的云存储和及时的软件更新。凭借其最高级、易于使用的摄像头，Pixel 3 是一流的。
请记住，Pixel 3 在更大的 6.3 英寸型号中可用（与此型号的 5.5 英寸显示屏相比）。Pixel 3 XL 起价为 899 美元（869 英镑，1，349 澳元），在显示屏上提供多一点的电池续航时间可隐藏。但功能，包括相机，否则是相同的。

New camera software also aims to improve photo quality. Google improved the camera's low-light capabilities with a feature known as. It works extremely well, brightening up even the darkest of scenes and keeping objects in focus. Top Shot, which works when you take "Motion" pictures, looks for smiles and open eyes to recommend the best image in a series. To improve its digital zoom, the Pixel combines several photos together and processes super detailed, zoomed-in shots.
通常，Pixel 3 会拍摄出色的照片，捕捉详细清晰的图像。颜色比你在iPhone XS上看到的要强烈一些，但是没有达到不现实或夸张的程度。像素还处理白平衡，其肤色比银河S9和注9有时更真实的生活。它还保留了比银河手机更暗的阴影的细节。
The Pixel 3's camera is skillful at taking portrait photos too. They take a few seconds to render, but the falloff between the fore- and background looks natural and not overly smooth. When I took a photo of a dog, I noticed a patchy-looking stray hair or two, but the effect was minimal. And the Pixel gives you the option to tweak the blurriness and focus of these portraits after you fire the shutter, similar to the iPhone XS and other Android phones. The editing process is precise and easy to use. (For a deeper dive, check out.)
