    "Drumroll please.... it's a Samsung! Rumors were all over the place, but it looks like Google is going with Samsung's trusty AMOLED panels this year."

    That makes sense. Last year's LG P-OLED display were bad on the Pixel 2 XL, so it didn't make sense how they could have improved the display tech so drastically in one year, now we know - it's a Samsung panel.

    That's great to hear. If LG's panel's still aren't good, don't let the consumer suffer for it. Stick with Samsung if need be, they make by far the best screens on a smartphone.

    No, not an LCD, it's an AMOLED panel - Samsung's OLED.

    Since Google is using Samsung's OLEDs do you all think that Google wasted their money investing in LG Display?

    Sorry, I wasn't clear. I really should pay more attention to my work. LOL!
    I meant for those of us upgrading from the 2xl to the 3xl.
    I hope that makes sense now.

    They were smart this time going with Samsung panels, from the looks of it on reviews the screen looks much better than the 2XL.

    Has LG made any improvements with its OLED screens from last year. They can have a heck of a business if they get these small screen bugs fixed.

    LG panels have never been great with OLED in phones. Honestly, their LCD back in the display was fine but OLED is so varied in quality. Samsung is officially king considering they make some (not all, now) iPhone and (all) Pixel 3 screens now.

    How does this work? Does Google just pay Samsung to use their display technology? Or does Samsung make their displays?

    Same as with Apple, they buy panels from Samsung.

    Yep this was reported awhile ago that they used Samsung. This just confirms it.

    The smaller Pixel 3 is also Samsung? iFixit is a little vague on that specifically.

    LG been making since Nexus days
    I'm just happy that they smarten up and went with Samsung. I do think they listen to these forums to some degree.

    Interesting. I thought the 3 and 3XL had different displays (the smaller being FHD and the larger QHD). I've noticed that the output between the 3 and 3 XL displays are not the same. If you hold the two phones side by side and look at the same images, you will see that the smaller 3 has slightly higher contrast and that there is a higher red cast (more noticeable on skin tones). Not garish by any means, it's still a great display and side by side some might could argue that the XL is too low in contrast. However, all things being equal (both set to adaptive display, same brightness etc.), the output is not the same.

    Not at all. If they would have used LG panels, you would probably see a lot more butthurt running rampant in this forum.

    LG's panels probably weren't ready for this gen, so they switched to Sammy. I'd bet they make the switch back next year, or the year after, they just have to wait until that money the invested yields results.

    The smaller Pixel has always used Samsung panels. One the XL models, the first was a Samsung and the 2nd was an LG.

    You've got to love reviewers who have said that the Pixel 3 XL screen, although excellent, just isn't quite as good as a Samsung screen!
