I finally got my hands on a Pixel 3 XL, and I just had to give it the unbox treatment! I’ve been waiting on this phone ever since the leaks first started, and while most people were generally disappointed by what they’d saw, I remained optimistic. The Pixel has been far and away one of my favorite devices to use, and if this year’s phone is even 5% better than the Pixel 2, then that’s still a hell of an improvement in my book. There’s a few minimal design changes, but for the most part, the biggest improvements are all on the inside. Google is relying on tons of extra software nuances to improve the overall feel in the user experience this year. They’ve also added essentials like in-box headphones, wireless charging, and water resistance to make this the best Pixel yet.
