The Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL launched last year experienced major issues such as burn-ins and color shifts. This created a whole controversy surrounding Pixel’s lineup of devices at the time. With this year’s Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL, Google has not only changed the displays on the Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL, but has also added a number of measures to mitigate the issue as buyers found themselves scared of experiencing these issues on such an expensive device that led to poor sales.

With the Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL, users are looking at a 2160 x 1080 and a 2960 x 1440 display, respectively. In addition to that, both devices are equipped with the latest and greatest protection solution from Corning, and that is Gorilla Glass 5. Furthermore, additional features regarding the displays include HDR certifications, the “now playing” feature, an always-on display, 24-bit color depth and a whole lot more thanks to the OLED panels.
While the display on the Pixel 3 may be a let down for some, it certainly doesn’t seem to be a major issue overall. The Pixel density on the Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL are 443 and 523PPI, which is completely fine, in fact, it’s great. Sure, having QHD display on a 5.5-inch display may have been the icing on the cake, but on a display that size, we wouldn’t really mind.
