Google has had enough: two Pixel phones end up on the sidelines

After the introduction of the Pixel 6, it is now time to say goodbye, according to Google. The Pixel 3 and the larger XL version will no longer receive updates from now on. Both phones came on the market at the end of 2018 and were particularly impressive with their cameras.

Pixel 3 (XL): Google pulls the plug

The Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL went on sale in October 2018. A little over three years later, according to Google, now is the time to find out to say goodbye to the two cell phones. No further updates are to be expected from now on. This applies to both Android and security updates (source: XDA Developers). Accordingly, the November patch is no longer being distributed. Android 12 is still available on the two phones.

The goodbye to the Pixel 3 (XL) is coming not surprising, but still at the wrong time. For a few weeks now there have been reports from users that their smartphone is in “Emergency Download” mode. A normal boot process is no longer possible here. So far, Google has not been able to solve the serious problem of the Pixel 3 (XL). Only Google itself currently knows whether that will ever be the case.

Is it worth switching to the Google Pixel 6 (Pro)? You can find out what we think of the cell phone in the Video:

Pixel 3 series: strong camera, weak battery

Pixel 3 phones will be remembered for several reasons – positive as well as negative. In particular, the rear camera, which enables images with a maximum of 12.2 MP, left a very positive impression on many users and testers.

It looks different with the Battery life which was criticized as too short shortly after publication. The Pixel 3 had a capacity of only 2,915 mAh, while the Pixel 3 XL had a capacity of 3,430 mAh. The Pixel 3 XL’s massive notch was also the subject of criticism. Even competitor Samsung let itself be carried away to the statement that you could “land an airplane” on the recess.
