It is IP68 dust- and water-resistant and measures 5.73 x 2.69 x 0.31 inches and weighs 5.22 ounces.
It has Bluetooth 5.0 and 802.11ac Wi-Fi. The data/charge port is USB-C.
The Pixel 3 is powered by a 2,915 milliamp-hour battery that quick charges through the USB-C port or wirelessly.
The fingerprint reader remains in the perfect position, centered on the back right where your index finger falls when you hold the phone.
Pricing and availability
The Pixel 3 is available directly from Google (unlocked for any carrier) or through Verizon. Prices are $799 for 64 GB and $899 for 128 GB. The 6.3-inch Pixel 3 XL is $100 more for each configuration.
The Pixel 3 isn’t the flashiest Android phone, or the biggest or fastest, but it is the purest Android experience and comes with outstanding hardware. Google makes the operating system, and while the company licenses it to the other Android phone makers, this is the phone it designed and built itself.
I said last year that this was almost a perfect Android phone except for the display. Well, the display issue is gone, so I guess this is the perfect Android phone (for me).
Pros: Solid hardware, great display, no preloaded software, fantastic cameras.
Cons: I’d like to see more RAM and storage options.
Bottom line: A great phone gets even better. This is my first choice for Android phones.
