In an event held in Madrid , Google has let us throw the glove at its new flagship terminal for a short period of time. Beginning with a brief presentation of Pixel 3 and a video review of
The tour began knowing the possibilities of the Pixel Stand , capable of charging 7 hours of battery of the Pixel 3 with just 15 minutes of charge . When the terminal is charging it can be turned on and off with the Google Assistant, which allows you to start the day by consulting the weather, the calendar or the traffic in the city. At night you can set the alarm to wake us up the next day, and here comes into play one of the newest features.
Pixel Stand, the Google Assistant and Google Lens
The Google Assistant is another feature that we have been able to prove. When we are away, the assistant helps manage the day with information about the agenda, among other features. In the event, for example, they placed us in a bakery in France and we used the helmets to ask for help with the translation without having to take the phone out . In this way, we were able to order a loaf of bread in French thanks to this function.
Google Lens promises to be one of the features that users will use the most. With this we can look for what we see, perform tasks more quickly and interact with the environment. Here we have moved to a flower stand, and using Google Lens we have been able to know all the information about a specific type of plant . You open the camera, press a few seconds the image that appears and in an instant you identify the object, animal or clothing, offering information of interest, such as your name.
Exclusively for Pixel 3, Lens suggestions on the camera work in real time with URLs, emails, phone numbers, addresses and QR codes without the need to be connected to the Internet . Here we have been able to take the typical company card of a person and with a simple photo the terminal has kept the contact with absolutely all the data that appeared on said card.
Photo booth mode, exclusive to Pixel 3
The quality of the images, even of the selfies, is quite high. Without a doubt it is the best smartphone camera. When taking a selfie, you can also edit the photograph by choosing, for example, that the background be seen in a grayscale tone and that the figure, in this case a person, be seen in color. The possibilities are very broad and will help photography lovers to have really striking images.
Finally, we have tested the Digital Wellness, a set of tools created to help the user understand the use of their mobile phone . For example, the Bienestar Digital control panel shows the time the user spends with the different applications or the number of times he unlocks the terminal . So that the user can focus on what interests him most, it is possible to set a timer for the applications.

That is, you can choose to use WhatsApp only 4 hours a day, so when the user passes that time figure, the application itself turns gray in the terminal interface and clicking on its icon does not let the user access The disconnection or rest mode allows to dim the terminal screen as a warning mode . If we select an hour for our rest, the screen turns gray to warn that it is time to relax the body for a while.
To have a better rest you can also activate the Silence when Rotate mode, with which when you flip the phone on a flat surface it goes silent automatically without the need to activate it manually. The control panel of Bienestar Digital also allows the user to manage the notifications and notifications that he wants to receive from each application.
In the event we have also been able to enjoy the terminal in all its colors, and version 3 XL, which will be available in white, black and pink , although the latter exclusively in the GStore. Undoubtedly, what we have been able to prove in this time of Pixel 3 does not do more than confirm that we are before one of the phones of the year.
