Google's new Pixel phone isn't so much a revolution as a solid improvement: like this year's iPhones, Google is making incremental changes this year. If you're wondering whether it's worth going for the shiny new Pixel 3 over the now sure-to-be-discounted Pixel 2, read on.

Android Pie has been around for a few weeks now and, while it's been well received by most, it's not perfect. While some features make sense, such as moving select top bar elements to accommodate the notch in the Pixel 3 XL, other "features" have been less popular. Here are some things Android Pie needs to get right sooner rather than later.
Yesterday, Google announced that the much-maligned notch on the Google Pixel 3 XL is a "removable" feature that can be hidden via a secret setting in Android Pie. Here's why you shouldn't get too excited.
Google officially unveiled the Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL after weeks of rumours and, unsurprisingly, they’re packed with new features and hardware that make them an appreciable upgrade over not just Google’s past Pixel smartphones, but many of their competitors as well.
Today, Google unveiled two new flagship smartphones rocking Android Pie straight out of the box - Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL. While they won't actually be hitting store shelves until November 1, you can pre-order either phone right now. Here are the links for Australian eager beavers!
Google events don’t typically elicit the same amount of fanfare as Apple’s do, but the announcements are just as enticing for both enthusiasts and anyone who likes shiny new things. This year, in an event held in New York City, the company revealed its new Pixel phones, a redux of the Pixel tablet (now with Chrome OS), a smart display, and a host of other devices it didn’t even bother mentioning (though we’ll tell you about them).
Google's attempt to take over the world of social networking, Google+ never really gained the traction the company hoped. And any hope of it catching up to Facebook were scotched last week when a massive hack was revealed resulting in the search giant announcing they would be shutting the service down next year. But in order to protect yourself now, here's how to delete your Google+ profile.
Google Home Hub is the latest member of Google's popular smart speaker family. At first glance, it looks like a Google Home with an LCD bolted on top - which seems pretty superfluous, given you can use existng Homes to stream video to TVs.
However, it turns out that the main selling point isn't video streaming at all. (The key is in the product's name.) In short, it will act as the central hub for all your smart home devices, allowing you to control them at a glance.
Google’s October 9 hardware event is approaching quickly, and over the past few weeks, rumours about what new devices Google will be announcing have been at a fever pitch. While we have a pretty good idea of what announcements to expect, the most obvious are the Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL smartphones. Here's how to ensure you get your device on launch day.
Google recently launched a new accessibility feature for Android devices, the Voice Access app. Voice Access goes beyond the voice commands already recognised by Google Assistant by allowing you to also control the touch- and gesture-based interfaces of your Android phone (and most apps).
In the history of worst kept secrets ever, Google's Pixel 3 would have to be close to the top of the list. With the alleged theft of a shipment of phones trumping the infamous "found it in a bar" iPhone 4 leak, we know a lot about the Google flagship smartphone that will be announced during the wee hours of Wednesday 10 October 2018. Here's everything we know about the Google Pixel 3 so far.
