How does the Google Pixel 3 compare against the top Android smartphones?

Matt Sayer 10 October 2018 NEWS

Are Google's latest Pixel smartphones good enough to dethrone the best Android handsets out there? Let's take a look.

After numerous leaks and even fully-fledged handset reviews, the Google Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL received their proper unveiling at Google's "Made By Google" event on 10 October 2018. As expected, both handsets will pack plenty of top-of-the-line features including crisp OLED displays, a high-end Snapdragon 845 processor and an AI-powered camera boasting the support of acclaimed photographer Annie Leibovitz.

For as big as Google is, though, it's far from the only player in the Android smartphone space. Between Samsung's Galaxy S line, LG's ThinQ series and the impressive output from companies like Huawei and OnePlus, there are a whole lot of options for folks wanting a cutting-edge Android handset in this day and age.

Comparing these options to find the best choice for you isn't easy. With so many factors to consider, weighing them all up can seem incredibly daunting, especially if you have to hunt down the relevant information manually. To make the comparison process a little simpler, we've rounded up some of the most popular Android handsets alongside the Google Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL in the table below. You can select up to four of these handsets by checking the "compare" checkbox, allowing you to see how their specs stack up quickly and clearly.
