2.weather-sealed (splashproof)
Google Pixel 3
Google Pixel 3 XL
The device is protected with extra seals to prevent failures caused by dust, raindrops, and water splashes.
3.weight

148g

184g

We consider a lower weight better because lighter devices are more comfortable to carry. A lower weight is also an advantage for home appliances, as it makes transportation easier, and for many other types of products.
4.thickness

7.9mm

7.9mm

We consider a thinner chassis better because it makes the product more compact and portable. Thinness is a feature highlighted by many manufacturers of mobile devices, but it is essential for a wide range of products.
5.width

68.2mm

76.7mm

The width represents the horizontal dimension of the product. We consider a smaller width better because it assures easy maneuverability.
6.height

145.6mm

158mm

The height represents the vertical dimension of the product. We consider a smaller height better because it assures easy maneuverability.
The waterproof depth rating indicates how well the device is protected against water ingress and water pressure. Devices which can withstand more water pressure are better for swimming or diving.
The Ingress Protection (IP) rating classifies the degree of protection against dust and water. Higher ratings are better. For example, a device rated IP68 can resist immersion into water for a certain time, specified by the manufacturer.
9.volume

78.45cm³

95.74cm³

Volume is the quantity of three-dimensional space enclosed by the product's chassis or, in simpler terms, the space the product occupies.

Display

1.pixel density

443ppi

523ppi

Pixel density is a measurement of a screen's resolution, expressed as the number of pixels per inch (PPI) on the screen. A higher pixel density translates into more clarity and sharpness for the images rendered on the screen, thus improving the quality of the viewing experience.
2.resolution

Performance

1.RAM

4GB

4GB

Random-access memory (RAM) is a form of volatile memory used to store working data and machine code currently in use. It is a quick-access, temporary virtual storage that can be read and changed in any order, thus enabling fast data processing.
2.CPU speed

4 x 2.8GHz & 4 x 1.77GHz (Qualcomm Snapdragon 845)

4 x 2.8GHz & 4 x 1.77GHz (Qualcomm Snapdragon 845)

The CPU speed indicates how many processing cycles per second can be executed by a CPU, considering all of its cores (processing units). It is calculated by adding the clock rates of each core or, in the case of multi-core processors employing different microarchitectures, of each group of cores.
3.has an external memory slot
Google Pixel 3
Google Pixel 3 XL
The device has a standard memory slot (such as an SD or micro SD card slot) that enables you to extend the built-in internal storage with affordable memory modules, or easily retrieve data, such as photographs, from the memory card.
The internal storage refers to the built-in storage space available in a device for system data, apps, and user-generated data. With a large amount of internal storage, you can save more files and apps on your device.
The system on a chip (SoC) has an integrated LTE cellular chip. LTE is capable of downloading at faster speeds than older, 3G technology.
Small semiconductors provide better performance and reduced power consumption. Chipsets with a higher number of transistors, semiconductor components of electronic devices, offer more computational power. A small form factor allows more transistors to fit on a chip, therefore increasing its performance.
The graphics processing unit (GPU) has a higher clock speed.
It can support faster memory, which will give quicker system performance.
9.Supports 64-bit
Google Pixel 3 (Qualcomm Snapdragon 845)
Google Pixel 3 XL (Qualcomm Snapdragon 845)
A 32-bit operating system can only support up to 4GB of RAM. 64-bit allows more than 4GB, giving increased performance. It also allows you to run 64-bit apps.

Cameras

The number of megapixels determines the resolution of the images captured with the main camera. A higher megapixel count means that the camera is capable of capturing more details. However, the megapixel count is not the only important element determining the quality of an image.
2.megapixels (front camera)

8MP & 8MP

8MP & 8MP

The number of megapixels determines the resolution of the images captured with the front camera. A higher megapixel count means that the front camera is capable of capturing more details, an essential factor for taking high-resolution selfies.
3.has built-in optical image stabilization
Google Pixel 3
Google Pixel 3 XL
Optical image stabilization uses gyroscopic sensors to detect the vibrations of the camera. The lens adjusts the optical path accordingly, ensuring that any type of motion blur is corrected before the sensor captures the image.
4.video recording (main camera)

2160 x 30fps

2160 x 30fps

The maximum resolution available for videos shot with the main camera. Although it may be possible to choose among other frame rates, those recordings usually have lower resolutions.
With a wider aperture the sensor can capture more light, helping to avoid blur by enabling a faster shutter speed. It also provides a shallow depth of field, allowing you to blur the background to focus attention on the subject.
6.Has a dual-tone LED flash
Google Pixel 3
Google Pixel 3 XL
A dual-tone flash has LED lights with different color temperatures, delivering a better color balance to photos and videos.
7.has a BSI sensor
Google Pixel 3
