Google working on fix for Pixel 3 memory management problems

Pixel 3, 3 XL have memory problems but a fix is on the way

Launched with the latest version of Android, Android Pie, the Pixel 3 flagship duo bring the latest and the best of Google's software prowess to the masses. But the big story with the updated Pixels isn't necessarily their looks - it's what you can do with the new phones. If you're at a bar and hear a catchy tune, your Pixel will recognize it automatically and display the song and artist information directly on the lock screen. In other words, the issue was actually hindering performance... and yet you'd have to multiply that by an order of magnitude before it would even approach what many Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL users are experiencing.

More recently, a memory management flaw has been discovered that's causing background apps (such as music apps) to close prematurely, usually after a user has taken pictures with the Pixel 3's celebrated camera.

The Pixel Slate starts at $599 and is available in multiple configurations.

You can also add a shortcut to your home screen. For now at least, you'll need a Pixel 3 or 3 XL to take full advantage of the history feature.

Man paralysed by backyard slug dies after eight years
The teenager then faced more struggles, as he became paralysed and was unable to eat or go to the bathroom by himself. He contracted eosinophilic meningoencephalitis ― a form of meningitis ― and fell into a coma that lasted 420 days.

He also contended, as he does daily, that if the Democrats win they will work to roll back everything he's tried to accomplish. Their candidate is the very high profile Beto O'Rourke and he's taking on the incumbent Republican Senator Ted Cruz.

Charges filed in hit-and-run that killed 4 in Wisconsin
The victims were among seven children and five adults who were working in the ditches along the roadway. Girl Scouts sang songs in memory of the victims, who were members of Troop 3055.

The call screen feature allows the phone to answer calls for you when telemarketers call. As the assistant answers the call, a real-time transcript appears on the Pixel's screen, letting you quickly identify if this is a call you really should take. On these two phones, you will find 16 and 20-megapixel cameras, the first one offer 1.22um pixel size and an f/1.7 aperture, while the second sensor comes with a 1.0um pixel size, and an f/1.7 aperture.

Google doesn't limit the Pixel's smarts to just taking better photos.

Digital Well Being is another Android 9 feature worth exploring. Truth be said, both devices are probably using only one sensor when shooting images in Google's Night Sight mode, as that is the way this mode was created, so Arnova8G2 probably only optimized the app to work on a different sensor.
