Unlike in the past when Google used to sell Nexus branded handsets, these days, Google’s Pixel devices tend to launch with features that are exclusive to the current handset. However, to Google’s credit, the company does eventually port some of those features over to its older devices.
Thinking of getting Google’s new Pixel 4 smartphones by trading in your older Pixel phone for it? If you are, then you might want to consider trading in with another company besides Google. This is because according to reports, it appears that Google is giving pretty disappointing trade-in values for older Pixel phones.
One of the features that Google introduced to Android and its Pixel series of smartphones is Digital Wellbeing.

Google is expected to launch the Pixel 3a and Pixel 3a XL next week, and it looks like at least one of the handsets has made an appearance on Geekbench, giving us a glimpse as to what we might be able to expect in terms of hardware specs. Of course, it should be taken with a grain of salt for now, but it does sound about right in terms of […]
Word on the street has it that Google could be prepping a more affordable variant of the Pixel 3 smartphone. The handset in question is rumored to be called the Pixel 3a and Pixel 3a XL, and last we heard, it could be announced on the 7th of May, a day before Google I/O 2019 is expected to kick off.
Back in the day (and it is still true today), you’d have to press the shutter button on your camera (or camera app) to take a photo. However, these days cameras are getting smarter thanks to the use of AI and facial recognition, where all it takes is for people to smile and it can take a photo, making it easier than pressing a button.
If you think that Google’s Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL smartphones are still a bit too expensive for your liking, then you might have heard that Google could be planning on launching budget versions of its Pixel 3 handset in the form of the Pixel 3a and Pixel 3a XL. The good news is that it looks like the handsets could be close to launch.
For a while now we have been hearing rumors that Google could be working on a new budget Pixel handset known as the Pixel 3a. It was unclear when Google might launch these devices, but it seems that we could be getting pretty close to an official launch because according to a report from 9to5Google, the phone has been spotted on Google’s very own store.
It is a pretty well-established fact that the Google Pixel 3’s camera has come a very long way from the early days of the Nexus and Pixel handsets. Whether or not it’s the best is debatable, but it’s hard to ignore the fact that it does a pretty damn good job (you can check out our review of the Pixel 3’s camera here). Unfortunately recently the camera has been acting […]

For the longest time ever, Apple’s iPhones were usually thought of to have the best smartphone cameras in the market. While the iPhone’s camera has continued to maintain its standards, it seems that they are being surpassed by other companies who appear to be more willing to take a bigger risk.
Remember back in the early days of the smartphone where more than one manufacturer still believed that people wanted physical keys for their phones?

These days a good many flagship smartphones are being equipped with dual or even triple camera lenses. However with the Google Pixel 3, Google has opted to maintain a single lens, but at the same time rely on software to keep achieve certain effects that would otherwise only be possible with a dual lens design.
It is safe to say that Google has made huge strides with their camera technology over the years, whereas before cameras on the company’s Nexus phones felt average at best, but that has definitely changed with their Pixel phones.
