IFixit's Google Pixel 3 XL Teardown Reveals Samsung Display

Google Pixel 3 XL Display Ranked Alongside Galaxy Note 9 iPhone XS Max by DisplayMate

Google Pixel 3 XL Display Ranked Alongside Galaxy Note 9 iPhone XS Max by DisplayMate

Fans of big-screen phones will find a lot to love with the Google Pixel 3 XL, but it's a lot to hold onto. In case you are planning to buy the all new Pixel smartphones, then telecom operator Airtel has good new for you. This policy is part of an anti-theft initiative that Verizon rolled out earlier this year to discourage folks from stealing from its retail stores.

Verizon remains the exclusive Pixel 3 carrier in the United States, and that isn't such a great thing this year, as the Pixel 3 phones are locked to Verizon's network.

Google's latest phone officially launched yesterday, and for the third time, Verizon is the only carrier selling the new Pixels directly.

Hordes of activists of Hindu fringe groups fought pitched battles with police, leaving many injured and bleeding. Kerala's tourism minister K Surendran appealed to protesters not to "convert this holy land into a battlefield".

Several potential causes have been offered up by users, like putting the phone to sleep soon after taking a photo, or the HDR+ feature in Pixel phones, but there's no general consensus yet.

The first to do so is the trusty iFixit, and while digging through the Pixel 3 XL's innards didn't result in any groundbreaking discoveries, there are still a few interesting changes compared to the last generation of Pixel phones. The trick seems to be waiting for a day for Verizon to automatically unlock it. Google didn't reveal the switching between the two South Korean companies for making the display panels of its Pixel 3 models.

Official support for Now Playing History is likely bad news for a number of apps on the Play Store that provide similar services, but it makes things easier for the average user. That means even the iPhone XR, which is available for preorder right now, will be briefly locked to Verizon. If you purchase the Pixel from the Google Store, you get what you'd expect: a phone that accepts any SIM card.
