This may be precisely why Google decided to showcase the new Pixel 3 and 3 XL camera by partnering with the photography giants from Condé Nast. The publishing juggernaut has issued what is likely its largest ever synchronized magazine cover campaign.
Pixel 3 phone as part of a paid advertising placement.No less than seven November covers of some of the more popular magazines in the portfolio - Allure, Architectural Digest, Bon Appétit, Condé Nast Traveler, Glamour, GQ and W - were captured with Google’s newest
Sporting Angela Bassett, model Alessandra Ambrosio, a Thanksgiving spread, Bermuda, Mandy Moore with Susan Kelechi Watson and Chrissy Metz, actor Ryan Gosling and a classy-looking Cardi B, the covers have been taken by some of the most respected names in the vast universe of Condé Nast photography.
The other PR stunt that Google pulled was catching Annie Leibovitz - you know, the world's most famous photographer - for the Pixel 3 cause. Apparently, she even ditched her beloved iPhone for Google's new computational photography algorithms.
The Queen of old-school picture-taking will now be traveling "around the country, capturing portraits of inspiring people and places." We can't wait for the final results from this projects that are sure to cement Google's reputation as an imaging giant that often makes us overlook whatever disadvantages its Pixel phones might have, real or imagined.

Well it's easy to do. Especially when Google gives you everything in the box to copy over all your data to a new Pixel. Plus there is a Quick charger in the box, ear buds, USB to USBC dongle, 3.5mm audio dongle, USBC cable. You can't even plug a new IPhone into Apples own MacBook pros. Pixels have phablet capabilities, where as the IPhones have absolutely no phablet capabilities what so ever.

Amazing how much better pictures get when you drop them in an expensive camera tripod.

Is that sarcasm or just the mindset of an iPhone user flipped around?
