Google’s Pixel 3 and 3 XL are cameras first, phones second, and it shows
It’s one thing to soak up every leak about Google’s new Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL Android phones and knock the larger device’s thick notch from afar, but another to actually hold them in your hands and try to make some sense of the design choices and features that are the result of them.
These are clearly the hot phones of the moment, and from my brief time with them, they certainly feel good in the hand. But is there anything compelling about the Pixel 3 phones beyond their glass surfaces? Yes… if you’re really into taking photos.
