Verizon temporarily removes SIM locks from Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL

Verizon temporarily removes SIM locks from Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL

It looks like Google didn't want to put up with the same screen burn-in and responsiveness issues with its Pixel 3, instead turning to LG's rival Samsung for its AMOLED panels.

Speaking about the offer, Vani Venkatesh, Chief Marketing Officer, Bharti Airtel said, "We are excited to extend our partnership with Google to on-board their latest range of devices to our Online Store and delight customers".

iFixit teardown of smartphones is something people follow up closely.

In the United States, you can grab the Pixel 3 directly from Google or Project Fi in 64GB guise for $799 or $899 for the 128GB version. However, the teardown didn't go as expected. Apparently, the "6.3-inch QHD+ Flexible OLED is a Samsung working".

Verizon remains the exclusive Pixel 3 carrier in the USA, and that isn't such a great thing this year, as the Pixel 3 phones are locked to Verizon's network.

That's not necessarily a bad deal if you can activate the new Pixel phone on Verizon first.

So, while the display is expected to be much more reliable and crisp than LG's attempt, iFixit partly blames Samsung's screen implementation for its lack of repairability.

In line with the launch of Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL, Google also unveiled its Chinese-language Google Assistant, making Taiwan the first outlet to utilize the smart voice assistant in Chinese. Google also frequently delivers security patches and early versions of new software to ensure that the phones remain secure even from malware attacks.

While trying to take the phone apart, the iFixit guy broke a few internals since the device was poorly constructed. iFixit know their things, which means the device may have some serious components structuring issues.
