Pixel 3’s ‘fatal error’ third-party app camera bug may be fixed in December update

Last month we reported that the Pixel 3 and 3 XL had an intermittent problem with third-party apps when using the camera. Those that ran into the issue would get a “fatal error” or similar warning as the camera failed to work in the app, a problem that would then persist in those apps even across reboots. Although not everyone was affected, we’ve seen reports that the issue has been resolved for many with the recent December patches.

November Pixel 3 and 3 XL update correctly identifies slow wireless charging

We were a bit perplexed a few weeks ago when Google announced its $79 wireless charger. After all, there are other 10W wireless chargers out there for much lower prices. Then, we found out only Google’s official Pixel Stand can charge the Pixel 3 and 3 XL at full speed. Oddly, other wireless chargers still displayed as “Charging Rapidly” on the phones. Google appears to have fixed that in the November OTA. Read MoreNovember Pixel 3 and 3 XL update correctly identifies slow wireless charging was written by the awesome team at Android Police. …

JerryRigEverything’s Pixel 3 XL test reveals back glass durability

The Pixel 3 XL is landing on doorsteps as we speak, but how careful do you need to be with your shiny new smartphone?
