I've also been running the very latest versions of the Android Q beta since they began with beta 1, beta 2 and now beta 3 running on my Pixel 3 XL 128GB.

In an interview, Google's Product Manager Soniya Jobanputra said that consumers spending almost as much as they are spending on the Pixel 3a (the sub-$500 segment) demand flexibility from their smartphones. A total of 21 was given originally, but that didn't include the newly announced Pixel 3a and 3a XL even though we'd separately been told they were going to get it.

A thread on Reddit, particularly around the Pixel 3, discusses on how disabling Digital Wellbeing has drastically improved the performance of the phone.

McGregor was arrested in March following an altercation with a fan that included a phone being smashed. McGregor had initially pleaded not guilty to the charges.


For about a fifth the fact that we saw the gear six months before its unveiling "somewhat" ruined the announcement event, yet the majority of you think that Google managed to pull off enough of an added value with the first midrange Pixels that it didn't matter they were profusely leaked prior to launch.

And back in January, you may recall that Marvin Chow - Google's VP of Product Marketing - fired off the following tweet featuring a side-by-side comparison shot of a photo taken with an iPhone XS and one taken with a Pixel 3.

It remains unclear how an app installed on a smartphone will be able to detect a vehicle accident, or whether this feature will eventually roll out to other Android devices apart from Google's Pixel smartphones. When Google's CEO Sundar Pichai took the stage on Tuesday, about the only thing left to see were the promo videos and the software trickery that the phones will introduce.

We tried everything to make it as hard as possible but not hard enough. "I couldn't be more proud of the boys", Klopp said . It is also the connection we have with the fans that helps us through tough, tough moments, through tough games.


The team at iFixit made a decision to teardown the phone to see how the device is manufactured.

Then comes the battery, which is secured using the stretch-release adhesive and is said to be very repair-friendly. Over the weekend, people in Washington D.C. noticed a new billboard ad that cleverly highlights the iPhone's subpar low light camera performance while also reminding folks that it's $600 more expensive than a Pixel 3a.

Sophie Turner blames Emilia Clarke for the Starbucks coffee cup gaffe
It looks like it will be a (relatively) bloodless coup with her allied forces besting the Lannister's mercenaries and troops. And besides, Clarke is a more likely suspect anyway, given that the cup was in front of her all along.
