  • Published on Oct 15, 2019
  • They're finally here: the Google Pixel 4 and Pixel 4 XL. They have what might be the fastest face unlock we've ever used and support 90hz variable refresh rates on their screens. Two cameras on the back, one on the front, and MotionSense radar for detecting your presence. Here's our hands-on with Google's newest phones.

    So the Face ID is only fast because it doesn’t detect if you’re actually looking at it. Sounds like a great feature for spouses 🤣🤣

    I would prefer more megapixels and would be willing to lose the extra zoom. With enough megapixels I can zoom in when I edit. What do you get for the extra zoom camera? They cut back on the processor, the ram & the battery.... Pretty much short changed the brain, heart and lungs, so we could have a third nipple. Weak....

      Galaxy nexus is the best form factor of Google phone, just make it thin bezel on top and bottom + 128 gig, and min of 3200 mah battery. Make simple design but attractive. Wh

    had they put a bigger battery on the smaller pixel and dropped the price $150, they'd have a very compelling product. I can't justify $799 for something with 64 gb and a 2800 mah battery. It's going to get full of stuff, slow down, and be constantly dead.

  • WUEDXFEI
    WUEDXFEI 28 days ago

    Seems like a rather weak flagship. You can get a 90hz screen, more memory, better processor on the One Plus 7t. All for $200 less. I'm failing to see what Google's angle is here: overpriced phone with small battery? If you want to see some specs, check out Asus Rog 2, which is monster specs.

    everybody look at other markets, too, because of this:

    Honestly guys. I have this feeling that has been confirmed by the latest Google event. Google is just a troll who wants to say we also have eco system like apple. And so they started producing products one for one against Apple products. Probably started as one of those elaborate April fools pranks but some of Android fanboys liked the idea so much that Google felt the need to do it. The proof of that the last event looked like it was done by the least professional, lowest paid, least experienced low level employees in the company.

    The design of this phone as same as Bphone that made in Vietnam. Somebody say the Bphone 3 is look like mimix 2s of Xiaomi that up side down, mean mimix have "chin", but that chin is a top of Bphone 3, mean Bphone 3 dont have chin, but the top is big because of no notch. This is the first phone on the world doing this design. After that, sony and google are using this design too. If you dont know what is Bphone 3 or mimix 2s, you can search for it!
