The Pixel 3 Lite and Pixel 3 XL Lite came up in a leak this morning with a release date range in tow.

DxOMark Pixel 3 score based on ‘default settings’

Let's talk for a moment about what it means to test the quality of a camera on a smartphone as we enter the year 2019. The folks at DxOMark suggest that their smartphone camera tests are done "using only their default settings." When it comes to a modern smartphone camera, is only looking at default settings for a review really fair?

Pixel 3 Lite XL brings on the confusion

Thought Google was simply aping Apple’s three-iPhone strategy this year? You were wrong because it’s doing one better. And by that, we mean it will be doing one more. Yes, Google is making not just three but four Pixel 3 phones. Or at least that’s what the latest leak seems to suggest.

The results, as they say, will surprise you.

Google Pixel 3 Lite might be Apple’s low-cost nightmare

Today the Google Pixel 3 Lite leaked from basically top to bottom. This is a device from Google that'll likely take on the iPhone XR tier phone. That is a perceived high-value for low-cost device that looks a lot like its larger, more powerful relative by nearly the same name. To take on such a phone, Google needed to keep their high-powered camera setup while cutting back in almost every other respect.
