The iFixit team notes in its teardown that it’s a “full reversal” from last year. In terms of build and construction, the Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL are quite similar. iFixit has given both a repairability score of 4 out of 10. The smartphones are also vulnerable to drop damage due to their front and back glass panels and have a large amount of glue. The display panel of the Pixel 3 is, in fact, offers as good results as the display of the Pixel 3 XL.
Google adds some identical specs on both panels, including full 24-bit depth with 16.77 million colors and 100,000:1 super contrast ratio.
The Pixel 3 XL’s notch is similar to the one featured on the iPhone X last year, and it is worth noting here that Samsung also emerged as the manufacturer of the iPhone X display.
