Google showed off its new Pixel 3, Pixel 3 XL phones and the new Pixel Slate, along with a passel of other Google and Pixel-branded products, earlier this week.

Google has been trying to challenge Apple and Samsung in the smartphone market but never really succeeded in taking the business to a scale sufficient enough to make it a significant player in the segment.

They've built two of the world's most powerful and wealthy businesses on the back of their software expertise but this week Facebook and Google unveiled hardware products. The third-generation Pixel will be released initially in ten countries (compared to six that Pixel 2 released a year ago).

The Pixel 3 faces continued limited sales in the United States since Google again signed an exclusive distribution deal with wireless carrier Verizon Communications Inc that means the device will get little marketing from other carriers. At least until we can give you a proper verdict on the Pixel 3. This feature is coming to Pixel 3 this month and to Pixel 1 and 2 in November.

Google's Pixel 3 phones are now up for preorder. If the feature doesn't work for you, then Google may be rolling it out in phases, and the support for increase/ decrease playback speed should arrive for all users soon. Google has stuck with a single rear 12.2-megapixel camera on both its new phones, continuing to resist the dual-camera industry trend.

Torchlight protest at racing ad on Sydney Opera House
More than 1000 protesters disrupted the controversial Everest horse race illumination at the Sydney Opera House last night. The guidelines have always been stretched in the part and the commercialisation of the Opera House has always been there.

On a similar note, Google is committed to the promise, which it delivered at its I/O event in May 2018, by launching a feature dubbed as continued conversation for Home Mini, Google Home, and Home Max this week. Google's hardware is expensive and sleek (just look at that overpriced Pixel Slate Pen), but the company is finally coalescing around its core software services to offer this "Google experience", much like Apple and Amazon. That allows you to make Google Duo video calls, which may make separated families very happy, though you can't Skype or, of course, Facetime, so everyone will need to get with the Google program.

Google surprised nobody at its 9 October event by launching a new flagship smartphone, the Pixel 3. We did feel, however, that colour saturation in video mode was a bit eclectic.

Quite simply, the Pixel 3's display is a major upgrade on that found on its predecessor. Pictures in low light will improve automatically through machine learning.

However, this comes with downsides. However, since many of its less-demanding software features will roll out to the Pixel 2 eventually (such as Google Duplex for automated phone responses), you certainly wouldn't be settling to stick to a Pixel 2. The technology enables the panel to use less energy per pixel, allowing for sharper displays without sacrificing battery life or size.
