Google Sold Fewer Pixels at the Start of 2019 Than the Year Before, Despite Launch of Pixel 3 Line

Google doesn’t sound like it’s had a great time trying to sell consumers on its Pixel line of phones lately, in part because there’s too much competition for high-end devices – at least according to remarks made during an earnings call with Ruth Porat, chief financial officer of Google’s parent company Alphabet.

And while this isn’t Google’s first attempt at something like this, this third Pixel (we evaluated both it and the Pixel 3 XL) is the device that really pulls all of Google’s efforts together and makes it feel special.

Apparently Google likes notches, and was hoping to add one to the regular Pixel 3 until it discovered there wasn't room.

Here Are All the Best Deals for Buying the Pixel 3 and Pixel 3XL in the UK
