Pixel 3a wins praise for repairability in iFixit teardown

Watch Google I  O 2019 Livestream- Time Schedule

Every time a new smartphone comes up, it's inspected from every angle by everyone, and the Pixel 3a is no exception.

Once the screen is removed, the components of Pixel 3a are easy to remove.

If you do buy or already have, a Pixel, then you're going to be stuck with Google's gestures, unfortunately. Two things that are pretty important to most people.

"Many of you told us that you want a rating that reflects a more current version of your app, not what it was years ago - and we agree", Google Play product lead Kobi Glick wrote on the company's developer blog. The camera in the Pixel 3a is extremely similar to the one in the Pixel 3, meaning it will simply blow away anything in the price range.

According to The Verge's Executive Editor and smartphone reviewer, Dieter Bohn, Pixel is the proverbial best in its class phone for customers shopping in today's mid market.

Pixel 3a and Pixel 3a XL will be available on Flipkart; prospective users can register on the site starting May 8.

Fortnite season 9 Battle Pass adds Fortbyte collectibles
The semi-automatic weapon takes the place of the pump shotgun, which was removed from the game otherwise known as "vaulted". Fortnite Fortbyte 24 is now live in-game on PS4, Xbox One and every other platform you'll find the Battle Royale game on.

That speed difference, he says, amounts to about a second to delay when opening up apps.

Iphone users aren't the only ones who be able to take advantage of Google's deals.

Google Camera app version 6.2.030 update is now rolling out, and we can verify that the new Timelapse mode has now arrived on our Pixel 3 after installing the update.

And, it confirmed rumors that it would be bringing back the headphone jack.

Google's built-in HDR+ technology will give Pixel 3a owners access to camera features such as Portrait Mode, Super Res Zoom, and Night Sight for low-light settings. "Now, with federated learning, Gboard can also learn new words after thousands of people start using them, without Google ever seeing what you're typing". When Google had the three button layout, you would just press and hold the Google Assistant, but with gestures now, there is no home button. But if it can't, the Pixel 3a also supports 18W fast charging, so you can get 7 hours of use with just a 15-minute charge. The new in-app updates API is now generally available, which will allow apps to be updated while they are being used.
