Google's Insane 'Call Screen' Feature Uses AI to Handle Spam for You

Google's Insane 'Call Screen' Feature Uses AI to Handle Spam for You

Google made the Pixel 3 beautifully thin, but unfortunately, it also made the Pixel 3 a glass-backed phone, and glass-backed phones need cases before they face the concrete jungles of the real world.

Both phones come with 4GB of RAM-making them even in that department.

Meanwhile, the Google Pixel 3 XL has a 6.3-inch 1440p panel with a density of 523 pixels-per-inch.

Another feature that will be coming to all Pixel phones in November is Call Screening.

So if you find the Google Pixel 3 XL an interesting mobile phone, you don't have to worry about the notch. Compare that to the iPhone XS's 5.8in display with a 2436x1125 resolution at 458ppi.

The new Pixel 3 manages to offer a plethora of new features as opposed to the Pixel 2.

Eschewing bulkier hard-plastic backs, the Liquid Crystal's flexible TPU is easy to apply and easier to grip.

Dodgers Beat Braves in Game 4 to Advance to NLCS
This is what the Dodgers had in mind when they acquired the free agent-to-be from the lowly Baltimore Orioles back in July. Game 3 of the NLDS between the Dodgers and Braves has a scheduled first pitch today at 8:07 pm EST / 5:07 pm PST.

In order to improve that experience further, Google has today updated a "Settings Suggestions" app for the Pixel and Pixel 2. The company unveiled the feature with the Pixel 3 in which it allows users to screen incoming calls to try and avoid scammers and telemarketers. For reasons that we have already reviewed dozens of times (the Pixel 3 XL prototype expedition would have been stolen and sold on the black market), we had the impression that we know all about the third-generation pixel phones of society. long before they appeared on stage in NY last Tuesday. For graphics, Google's using the Adreno 306 GPU which is found on nearly all flagship Android phones. The Pixel 3 only offers an optional 128GB of storage. The new redesigned Google Pixel 3 camera app comes with new features like "Top Shot" and "Night Sight" etc. The main highlights of these devices are the camera features.

The Note 9 is about as big as the Pixel 3 XL, so the only thing you could land a plane on is the notch. The cameras, too, are similar, including the dual front-facing shooters.

Until now, Pixel owners haven't been able to use an external microphone with the default camera app. But it lacks a zoom lens on either side, something available on some iPhones and Samsung phones.

Via Reddit, we're pointed to a quick test that was posted on Twitter by a blogger the day after Google's Pixel 3 event.

The Pixel 3's selfie camera has two 8-megapixel lenses, one of which is wide-angle.

The Pixel 3 starts at $799, or monthly payments of $33.29. The iPhone XS will cost £999 (64GB), £1149 (256GB), or £1349 (512GB).
