Google Slowly Starts Fixing Pixel 3 Problems

Google Slowly Starts Fixing Pixel 3 Problems

This update should be landing on devices "in the coming weeks", claims the report.

The Pixel 3 is one of the first smartphones to ship with Android 9 Pie, the latest version of Google's mobile operating system. The second image was taken using the Google Camera mode (with Night Sight activated) on the OnePlus 6 (the one that you can download from the provided link), and the third one was captured using the Google Pixel 3, and with a selected Night Sight option. So, why have they been disappointing? Some issues are quite serious while others are quite minor. In any case, Nightscape is basically OnePlus' dedicated mode for shooting pics in environments where there is not much light, but Google's Night Sight still has the upper hand, at least based on what we've seen thus far.

Google confirmed that the fix will not be issues with Novembers security patch so our guess is it will come with the December OTA patch.

Remember how bad the RAM management problems were on Apple's iPhones in iOS 11?

Steven Check, president of Check Capital Management Inc, a Berkshire shareholder, said Berkshire's buybacks were a good sign. Berkshire Hathaway Inc. owns more than 90 companies, including the railroad and clothing, furniture and jewelry businesses.

Probably the most annoying and user experience-damaging issue of them all effectively made multitasking impossible, as the Pixel 3 and 3 XL appeared unable to handle running more than a couple of apps at the same time. Super Res Zoom makes up for the Pixel 3's lack of optical zoom by using computation photography to sharpen in details when you zoom in.

According to a Google spokesperson, this update will fix the memory issues by keeping "background apps from being prematurely closed".

This quirk is frustrating, but Google has acknowledged the troubles and is working on a fix.

Were you one of the lucky ones? We know we would definitely be annoying if performing simple tasks was enough to crash a music stream in the background on our phone. But the big story with the updated Pixels isn't necessarily their looks - it's what you can do with the new phones.
