List of Google Pixel 3 Issues and Their Fixes

  • Google, at its latest I/O 2021, announced the release of the all-new Android 12 OS. And the Android 12 Beta has been pushed to some flagship smartphones, including the Google Pixel 3, which is, of course, a few years old but still an excellent phone with outstanding performance. 

    Google updates its software quite often to address any security flaws. And, in recent months, those monthly “security updates” have contained significant problem fixes. Google Pixel 3, which is currently receiving the Android 11 software update, now has access to the beta version of Android 12. However, those who have updated their Pixel 3 to Android 12 Beta are reporting complaints of certain bugs, glitches, and issues that they are facing.

    This blog is a fantastic place to start if you’re having problems with audio, phone calls, performance, a sluggish camera, low Pixel 3 battery life, or the phone getting frozen. We’ll assist you with a variety of problems while also enhancing your daily experience.

    The Pixel 3 is an excellent phone with a lot to offer, but it isn’t perfect. We’ll go over a list of the most common Google Pixel 3 issues and suggest solutions in this tutorial.

    Camera’s Slow Launch

    How to fix it- 

    • Update to the latest version of  Google Photos.
    • Or manually browse the photos in their designated folders via File Manager.

    Battery Expansion

    After some time, batteries often expand due to harsh conditions. This issue is quite severe since such batteries can break and damage the phone entirely.

    How to fix it- Replace and Use the Battery Carefully

    • Get the Battery Replaced by a Google-certified service store and not locally. Never replace the battery by yourself.
    • Remember to keep the battery in favorable conditions, never too hot or too cold.

    If you’re still unable to fix some of these issues, you can always send feedback to Google reporting the problem you face. There are many ways you can report issues; you can do it by Tweeting at the Made by Google Twitter account or posting on the Pixel User Community Product Forum.

    Some of these flaws may be deal breakers for you, while others may appear minor. We’ll keep track of which concerns are expected to be remedied by a software update and whether Google has made any statement on the subject.

    We’ll keep a lookout for bug fixes in each release, as well as fixes from other sources and new issues that arise as the phone ages. As we see and learn more, we’ll update this post with all the details.
