    I wish the pixel was $700 instead of $800. The display is irresistible especially at 90 Hz coupled with OLED but I’m not sure whether to buy a p4 and which one to buy the regular or XL.

    Suggestion- use a solid background while showing the phone use!! Seems like the phone have a pop-up Camera!! And can't tell the actual screen real-estate!! Rest very informative!! Loved the depth and even the little details which plays big roles!! Thank you!!

    The back side looks like some kind of a Ikea furniture. And the orange colour button looks ugly on the black background. They could have put a speaker on the bottom bezel and make the top and bottom bezel sizes equal. I mean, symmetry, people. We are programmed to like symmetry.

    Stock doesn't means its always good for example Google chrome sucks because it has tons of ads. I prefer brave browser
    Vpn can help in blocking ads but it also drains battery and pixel 4xl battery isn't the biggest for a start
    The youtube app has tons of annoying ads too
    Other than these the phone is fluid

    shit battery shit chin shit storage options and because of the shit battery the 90hz screen is basically useless so its a huge fail for google

    I just ordered the Pixel 4 and excited to get it. I think they should have: 1) kept the fingerprint scanner on the back 2) increased battery life 3) included a wide angled lense 4)
    I don't care about hand gestures. "Keep it simple, stupid."
    Having said that, I love the feel and experience of the Pixel phones.

    It feels like every reviewer just regurgitates the same things about every phone. I'm getting a little burned out with trying to find a fresh and honest perspective.
    Note...This is not a commentary on Tim specifically but an observation of most RU-clip tech reviewers in general.

    Great review! The Pixel 4 XL seems like a great device, but as someone that prefers smaller/one-handed devices, I'll have to pass on the Pixel 4. I really was hoping to upgrade my Pixel 2 this year, so that's unfortunate.
    I've been considering an iPhone 11 Pro or Galaxy S10, but for the past 4 years I've used Google phones (Nexus 6p, Pixel XL, Pixel 2) and I feel like I won't enjoy the experience if a Samsung or Apple device as much.

    I think you said it perfectly, the price makes it hard to recommend. I don't think lowering it $150 is enough though, especially if you currently have a Pixel 3 like I do... I need this phone to drop down to around $500 for me to consider changing out my P3...

    I'm using the OnePlus 7pro with the 12GB ram and 256 memory and 90hz display and I absolutely love the battery life and performance. I am really happy I bought this phone because there hasn't been another flagship released that has made me want to switch or buy another phone ... Most people don't know about the OnePlus 7pro and they are missing out big time

  • Greg Rosenheck

    I'm up in the air. I love that cam but no ultra wide, I want to use the 90Hz screen but the phone might die, I don't like Samsung phones, I have now a pixel 2xl and it's ok but would like to get out of it. Im at the point I dying to buy this phone but I won't

    Left all of the hopes from Google. It's literally high on weed. Right now. Totally wrecked. Only Samsung and Custom Android ROMs can make it better with features and catchy. Lineage OS's old features are put and Google call it Q exclusive 🤦🏻‍♂️

    And just like how the Pixel 3 line went on sale during Black Friday 2018, the same is happening to the Pixel 4 line this upcoming Black Friday. SMH, it's now somewhat of a rule to not buy a new Pixel phone when it launches, but wait for Black Friday or even next year in January.

    Google is so confusing when it comes to hardware, they go forward and backwards over and over, small battery , big forehead, no headphone jack , no fingerprint scanner period ,, get a new hardware planner Google

    • Lucas Johnston
      Lucas Johnston 16 days ago +1

      I think they made the right decision as far as hardware goes. Headphone jacks are gone from almost all phones because companies are trying to push their wireless headphones. The forehead is there this year because of the backlash with the pixel 3xl's notch and the well-received Pixel 3a. The small battery is an issue on the Pixel 4 not the 4 XL. Fingerprint scanners are being removed as companies are trying to push facial recognition over fingerprints. Regardless of whether or not you personally think they screwed up their design, they are following the direction of the marketplace. The forehead is the only change they made. Personally, I like the idea of a full-screen device without the forehead but I really like the idea of the technology they are putting into the forehead and it makes it worth it for me. You might think the radar is gimmicky and as it stands right now I can understand that but the soli project is capable of doing so much more than just switching songs. This is Google's first generation of Soli in a phone and so it is their testing phase in a few years from now there's no telling what we as consumers will be able to do without touching our phones. The Soli project is remarkable and it is a shame that the general public's first impression of it is swiping left or right to change songs.

    Nice job... You bought up the good and not so good. I have a Pixel 3a and Ive been totally been happy with it, it's a great phone for what it cost and I think you hit the nail on the head when you brought up the cost of the Pixel 4 vs what it delivers.

      Why do you like it? Because lots are nit picking Google apart and it's still a great device. I wouldn't say any so called omission is what I'd call upsetting. Tim needs to calm It's a smartphone at the end of the day and not a life changer. In a few more months they'll be talking about the Pixel 5.

    I'm really confused about the 90Hz comments, I've had mine forced to 90Hz since the day I got it and it lasts me all day. Yesterday I was on set for 14 hours, didn't plug my phone in from 8am - 11:30pm and I got home with 5% battery left. Not sure how you didn't get to dinner with any charge 🤷‍♂️

      How is having 5% left good battery life ? , you do realize this is a new phone and that battery life will shrink quickly over time ?
