This is the type of image quality you'll usually be looking at with the Pixel 3 Top Shot feature. However, consumers on the fence with the latest Google-made devices shouldn't let the existence of the new feature affect their purchase decision; if being able to salvage a mistimed photo is of enormous importance to you, Sony's Predictive Capture supported by its recent Android flagships such as the Xperia XZ2 Premium remains a far superior option, both in terms of image quality and reliability.

The Pixel 3, which features a 5.5-inch OLED display, a Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 CPU, 4GB RAM and 64/128GB of ROM, is available starting at NT$27,700 (US$898).

However, there's a procedure in place to automatically unlock the phones. Putting a Verizon SIM in it, the phone worked fine - but it complained again as soon as it had another U.S. SIM inserted, so this isn't just a "first-time setup" requirement. Airtel has provided 18-months EMI plan at Rs 3,499 a month for Pixel 3 smartphone. In past years, Verizon has sold SIM-unlocked Pixels that worked on every carrier - indeed, all its phones were unlocked because of a legal agreement it made a decade ago. At this point, the information we have is that this is not the case when the phone comes from Best Buy. Whether a Verizon representative (in store, online or on the phone) would be willing to do that for you when you're not a Verizon customer is another question entirely. The trick seems to be waiting for a day for Verizon to automatically unlock it.

For now, this means you should buy from the Google Store if you intend to use another carrier.

In the U.S., you can grab the Pixel 3 directly from Google or Project Fi in 64GB guise for $799 or $899 for the 128GB version. That is, until we get this whole situation sorted out.
