Google Pixel 3/3XL photo saving bug getting a fix; memory management issue appears

23 October 2018 3

A new bug encountered in the Pixel phones hinders the pictures from getting saved inside the Gallery after they are captured. However, this isn’t the only issue experienced by the Pixel 3 users as some have also reported about the memory management issue that won’t let the opened apps to keep in the memory, this is associated with the 4GB RAM variants.

While Google hasn’t said anything about the latter issue, it has spoken about photos saving bug and announced to feed the fix soon. Also, another issue related to poor audio output is currently being experienced by the users but Google didn’t address it as an issue and rather called it a “specifically designed” thing for better audio output.

Coming to the photos saving issue, Google has reportedly said that the fix will be sent to all the Pixel phones.

“We will be rolling out a software update in the coming weeks to address the rare case of a photo not properly saving,” the company said in a statement to Android Police.

The issue is annoying as it doesn’t allow the users to save an important snapped picture. With such a premium device, users tend to rely on them for photography, so it becomes cumbersome when a unique shot gets missed due to such errors.

Google, however, hasn’t shared the cause behind this bug but has, at least, given a sigh of relief that the update is on the way.

Now, talking about the memory management issue, even international smartphone reviewers have been reporting this issue and have taken to Twitter to express their views on the same. For instance, MKBHD said that just opening the Camera app, while music is playing in the background will pause and close the Music app forcing you to launch it and play your song again.

Users use their phones every now and then and Google's talking about bringing a fix soon. "Soon' has no definition. Until then the users should stop clicking images from the Pixel 3 phones?
