Google issues statement about RAM management issues on the Pixel 3

This was bound to happen, as both the OnePlus 6 and 6T are now running Android 9 Pie, not to mention that both of them also run OxygenOS, which is closer to stock Android than a ton of other skins out there. That's been the story surrounding the launch of the Google Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL. So, why have they been disappointing? The phone will still notify you with a sound or vibrate, but no actual notification shows up on the display - at least until you reboot the phone, which fixes the issue until you put the phone on the Pixel stand to recharge again.

The problems Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL users have been experiencing range in severity. The most recent acknowledgement came at the end of last month when Google committed to fixing the camera bug that was causing pictures to disappear. They were so bad that iPhone models powered by the A11 Bionic chip from 2017, which is still more powerful than anything in Android phones even now in 2018, were losing speed tests to lesser handsets. Tell us what other situation youve noticed apps closing prematurely.

If you've gotten your hands on a Pixel 3 or 3 XL, you're likely eager to get the most out of your new phone. That's where some users are at with the Pixel 3 right now.

According to a Google spokesperson, this update will fix the memory issues by keeping "background apps from being prematurely closed".

If that didn't make you return your unit, you can breathe easily now, as 9To5Google has confirmed with the search giant a fix is in the works and set to roll out "in the coming weeks". But the big story with the updated Pixels isn't necessarily their looks - it's what you can do with the new phones.

There may be just one camera on the back of the Pixel 3, but up front, you'll find a pair of lenses.
