Google is Finally Fixing the RAM Issues Plaguing the Pixel 3

Google is Finally Fixing the RAM Issues Plaguing the Pixel 3

While the root cause has not been revealed, prior to the patch, some Pixel 3 owners ran into situations where apps would close or shut down seemingly at random, sometimes even in the middle of an operation. It's hoped that these "certain circumstances" include the scenario of running a music app in the background while the camera is launched. It however said that users in Germany should be able to enjoy eSIM support on their Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL smartphones "soon" via Deutsche Telekom and Vodafone. The Pixel ThrEE with EEsim (sorry - there's a reason we don't work in marketing) will be available "in the coming months". You may well have an offer for up to $200 off the Pixel 3/3 XL. This sounds like a smokescreen to me: I experienced memory problems immediately on both Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL but never saw such a thing with the previous devices. First, Google has adjusted the volume behaviour when connecting to a Bluetooth device, which applies to all Pixel phones. And while this wasn't an issue that affected every user, it's still not exactly the kind of experience you'd like to see from a $1,200 phone.

There's also a very good 12-megapixel rear camera which not only allows you to add DSLR-style depth of field to your images but also now includes a clever Night Sight mode for better photos in low light.




As mentioned above, the update and all applicable features patches will roll out to all Android devices starting today, 12/5.

However, Google also releases the OTA and factory images for all its updates, and the December update is now live for those who prefer to flash OS updates to their devices manually.
