Social reacts to the Google Pixel 3

Google have finally announced their flagship devices for the year – the Google Pixel 3 and the Google Pixel 3 XL.

If you’ve been keeping an eye on the leaks surrounding these devices, what was shared was ultimately… pretty spot on. Both devices are bigger than their predecessors, the Google Pixel 2 and XL.

The Google Pixel 3 boasts a 5.5in OLED display whereas the Pixel 3 XL has a 6.3in screen. The XL version also has a notch on the screen, but we’ll get round to that.

Google have stuck to their guns and kept a single camera on the back, despite the dual lens trend – but there are dual front-facing 8MP cameras, to take a more in-depth selfie.

What they have introduced is a new call feature that allows you to screen spam calls. When a suspect call comes through, Google Assistant will answer in your place and tell the caller you’re using a screening service. It will then ask the caller for their name and why their calling so you can decide whether or not to answer. In fact, you can even block the caller based on the transcription Google Assistant will provide you in real-time of the call.

Inside the phones is a Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 processor, 4GB of memory and a storage choice of 64GB or 128GB. You won’t have the option to include a microSD card and the headphone jack is gone.

So, what did Twitter have to say about this announcement?

For some people, it was a clear winner

Some more time was needed before the Pixel 3 commitment
