    The Pixel 3, announced last week, isn't a small phone by any means. But compared to the 6.3-inch Pixel 3 XL, Google's 5.5-inch flagship model is the more pocketable version. It feels sleek and slick in the hand, a refinement over past Pixels.

    Inside, the Pixel 3 has the specs to bring against the iPhone XS and Galaxy S9. New to the Pixel 3 is a pair of 8-megapixel front-facing cameras, and support for wireless charging. Google will even sell you its own Pixel Stand for $79, which has some Pixel-only tricks.

    More importantly, the third-generation Pixel also has the weight of Android Piesoftware and the deep well of Google's services. At its launch event, Google highlighted some retooled camera processing that promise vivid low light photography and features to help select your best photo. It also puts its AI software, called Google Duplex, to work with a new feature that will talk to robocallers for you.

    Our Pixel 3 review is underway, so come back later to see how the phones compare after our real-world tests, especially the Pixel 3's 12.2-megapixel camera. Meanwhile, here's how the specs stack up.

    I just bought an iPhone X. I stayed away from the Xs as I had read about some antenna issues as well as other bugs I suspected would be addressed with a SW upgrade, but wasn't willing to pay a premium for it. I like the phone.

    I asked my nephew if he thought I should get an Android phone as he has been a user of that platform for a long time. He is a real nerd and fixes everyone in the family's software glitches. His recommendation to me was, "for you? stick to Apple" :)
