Among Star Trek fans, “Kobayashi Maru” is synonymous with “no-win scenario” … and this year in mobile tech, my Kobayashi Maru is the Pixel 3 review. Because this phone is marred by so much controversy and compromise that phone geeks will flay me for even suggesting it’s worth its asking price … while at the same time, the normal folks at whom the phone is aimed will see a fantastic iPhone XS alternative for $200 less — and for them, the defects I call out may seem barely worth a mention. As usual, reality is somewhere in between. Join me as I try to tease the truth from the trash, in the MrMobile Google Pixel 3 Review!



MrMobile’s Google Pixel 3 Review was produced following two weeks with a Google Pixel 3 review device provided by Google. Preproduction device running prerelease software.
