We're still working on our full review of Google's recently announced Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL, but in the meantime, we wanted to showcase exactly what its camera is capable of. Last year's Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL had fantastic cameras, and Google claims that this year's update is even better, in part because of its continued confidence in its single rear camera.

We'll continue to update this post as we take even more photos with the Pixel 3, so come back for additional dog photos, low-light shots and more.
