85.5% Google Pixel 4 Review: no longer at the smartphone forefront | Notebookcheck
The Pixel 4 features almost no real updates save for a touchless gesture control feature and a 90 Hz panel. Otherwise, the device can be considered mostly a facelift. Unfortunately, it no longer features a fingerprint reader and the battery has decreased in capacity. Let's find out whether this new recipe actually works.
70% Google Pixel 4 review

The Pixel 4 packs in a number of major hardware changes - the second lens, 90Hz display, new face unlock, radar sensor, and Neural Core chip - and still has the best camera around for stills, even if it's badly behind on video. But the battery life is unquestionably the worst in any phone around this price point, and the single biggest reason that the Pixel 4 is difficult to recommend.

Google Pixel 4 Audio review
Source: DxOMark English
While there’s still some room for improvement, the Google Pixel 4 delivers a decent performance in our DXOMARK Audio tests, earning itself a place among the three best Android devices and outperforming such heavyweight competitors as the current Samsung flagships and the OnePlus 7 Pro. For music lovers and avid videographers of family and friends, the Pixel 4 should deliver more than satisfying results. For other uses, spatial performance could be improved, especially in movie and memo playback modes, as well as in memo and selfie camera recording modes.

We know that deep down you feel disappointed by the Pixel 4 - it's the prevalent sentiment around the office too. There's little excuse for the poor battery life, the one-camera-short attitude that Google is sticking with, the only-sometimes-90Hz display, things like that. Plus, the Pixel 4 isn't exactly priced to sell, and much better deals are available, even from the big names.

Google, in striving to build a phone for the 80% has neglected several things we expect from a premium flagship smartphone in 2019. The camera is great, but it’s not class-leading exceptional. The display is good, but it’s not great — 90Hz refresh actually provides a welcome experience for users, but it’s not bright enough.

85% Google Pixel 4 and 4 XL review: The biggest upgrade Google has delivered so far
Source: Hardware Zone English
Is it worth the upgrade over the Pixel 3? I think that depends on what you want from your phone. The Pixel 3 is getting new features like the new astrophotography mode, and it also runs Android 10. It's basically the same core Google experience as the Pixel 4. But the Pixel 4 is also faster, has a much better screen, and a more capable camera. If you want the best possible experience from Google, upgrading is a no-brainer. But the Pixel 3 still takes very good photos, and if it's still serving you well, you can probably get by with the same monthly software updates.

Google Pixel 4 review: From an iPhone user's perspective
Source: Android Central English
So, the Pixel 4 ends up feeling like it's trapped between multiple quantum states. A phone with some jaw-dropping technologies that has to service too many agendas, and lacks the singular focus or vision to be what everyone really wants it to be. More than the sum of those technologies. To be truly great.

However, it’s no longer a clear leader running neck-and-neck with Huawei. Competitors closed the gap this year, and Google didn’t pull further away from the pack. Virtually all the new camera software features and modes were shipped out to Pixel 3, 3 XL and 3a devices via software updates, lessening the incentive to get the Pixel 4.

80% Google Pixel 4 review: the best Pixel yet might not be good enough
Source: T3 English
The reasons to buy a Pixel phone are the same as ever with the Pixel 4 – that pure Android experience, the power of Google Assistant, and the magic that Google can do with photos (including astrophotography, this year). The Pixel 4 adds some nice touches as well, like Face Unlock and the Recorder app. Most of this is the AI and software at work though – and it feels as though the hardware side is less of a priority for Google.

The Pixel 4 remains as a premium device which ticks off all the boxes. But certain design decisions such as the 90Hz screen combined with the smaller battery capacity makes you wonder if Google was even all that serious in making hardware. On the software side, the company is nothing but amazing. Features like live caption, Google Assistant simply grow from update to update. The hardware delivery of getting new users into the Google and Android ecosystem needs major reworking and a big price adjustment.

As I said in the title, I wasn't expecting to love these phones so much. It's just this weird mix of great new features and strange omissions, and I was well aware of the shortcomings heading into my testing. I knew to expect poor battery life, that there's no ultra-wide camera, that there's no 4K 60fps video capture, and that it has a massive top bezel.

Pixel 4 Review: Grand Vision, Underwhelming Execution
Source: Androidcommunity.com English
A smartphone is more than just the sum of its parts and the Pixel 4 feels more disjointed than any other Pixel phone in the brand’s short history. It feels more like a showcase of technologies rather than a single unified product. A smartphone these days also don’t exist in isolation and the Pixel 4 will have to try to stand out from an already crowded marketplace. Given the sales performance of the last year’s Pixel 3, Google definitely needs to revisit its strategy lest the Pixel becomes another Nexus story.

Google Pixel 4 is oh so awesome [Review]
Source: Beta News English
So, do I like the Pixel 4? Very much so. In fact, I can see myself possibly switching from iPhone for Google's newest smartphone. Google Assistant is so much better than Siri -- it's not even a competition. It is pretty neat that you can summon the assistant by squeezing the Pixel 4 too. I absolutely adore the smaller size compared to the XL variant -- I suggest holding both before deciding. The 5.7-inch screen is plenty big and doesn't feel bulky in my pocket. Truly, I wouldn't want a phone bigger than this.

Source: Chrome Unboxed English
Right now, I’m not convinced that the Pixel 4 is that experience mainly because I’ve not tried much else in the past few years. I’ve had OnePlus phones, but never really given them a shot. I’ve not owned a Samsung phone in at least 5 years, and companies like Motorola and LG haven’t been on the radar for a very long time for me. For me this year, I think I’m going to try a few new things to see what’s out there and stretch my legs a bit. Who knows: I may come running back to Pixel. But I might not, either. I’m afraid that the Pixel 4 is just not the upgrade the majority of user are going to rush out to get their hands on this year. Me included.

The Pixel 4 packs in a number of major hardware changes - the second lens, 90Hz display, new face unlock, radar sensor, and Neural Core chip - and still has the best camera around for stills, even if it's badly behind on video. But the battery life is unquestionably the worst in any phone around this price point, and the single biggest reason that the Pixel 4 is difficult to recommend.

80% Google Pixel 4 Review: More Than Just a Great Camera

The Google Pixel 4's subpar battery life is a shame, because Google's flagship is an otherwise great all-around device with clever software features; useful differentiators, like Face Unlock, Motion Sense and the 90-Hz screen; and the finest cameras we have ever seen on a phone.

80% Google Pixel 4 review: Delight and frustration

The Pixel 4 is a clever little phone that’s undermined by a series of rather basic flaws, including one of the worst battery lives we’ve seen on a modern flagship. The camera is still outstanding, but you’ll have to look past a few irritations to get the most out of it.

80% Google Pixel 4 Review: Self-Sabotage
Source: Slashgear English
Good, with moments of greatness. Maybe I’m spoiled, but I don’t think that’s enough to put the Pixel 4 at the top of the pack this year. For most, I suspect a Pixel 3a with Google’s eventual camera update will do the trick, or a OnePlus 7T if you’re even more focused on photography. Android 10 is a treat, and the photography is fantastic, but Google made a dumb decision around the battery and the Pixel 4 is too expensive. Whether you can stomach those compromises comes entirely down to where your priorities lie.

Google Pixel 4 Review: Nope, Not This One

Ummm, I don’t think anyone should buy the regular Pixel 4. There are too many red flags and I’m concerned that this just isn’t a phone that will last you two years. Since it starts at $800, my suggestion would be to pass.

Pixel 4 is the smoothest, smartest Google phone yet

Overall these are great evolutions of Google's Pixel smartphones, adding a number of new hardware elements that don't revolutionise the experience but refine and streamline it in various ways. It's still the Android phone to get if you're wedded to the Google ecosystem and like to have the latest Android software as soon as possible, though owners of a Pixel 3 or those looking for a less-expensive upgrade might find many of the features trickle down in the coming months.

The Pixel 4 and the Pixel 4 XL start at $799 and $899, respectively, for a variant with 64 GB of built-in storage. I highly recommend that you spend an extra $100 to double storage space, because Google no longer offers unlimited cloud storage for photos and video in original quality.

If you want a small form-factor, Android-powered camera-phone, then the Pixel 4 is excellent. It’s not the prettiest phone around, and for the money you can get phones with better hardware, like the OnePlus 7T. But Google’s imaging wizardry and clean software more than make up for this. My only major quibble is that the phone’s battery life could be better.

90% Google Pixel 4 and Pixel 4 XL Review
Source: Fone Arena English
The Pixel 4 and 4 XL are phone that really reflect Google’s focus on ‘ambient computing’, or technology that’s there whenever you need it and fades away when you don’t. It starts before you even hold the phone, with Soli waiting for you to reach for it to speed up unlock time. It’s there with the organic feel of the phone itself, and in the way Google Assistant is ready to step in and help, and then step away. It’s there in the way the software learns what you want from it so it can get it to you faster. It’s not just one flashy feature or new piece of hardware, it’s just the little ways everything fits together into a cohesive experience. It’s a bit difficult to concretely define, but this seamless, ambient experience is, to me, the greatest strength of the Pixel 4 series.

85% Google Pixel 4 and 4 XL review: A slightly flawed taste of the future
Source: Engadget English
I can't remember the last time I've been so torn on a pair of smartphones. On the one hand, Google didn't nail everything. Face Unlock is in need of a fix. The battery life is mediocre at best. Motion Sense, as magical it feels when it works right, isn't very useful yet. And the price for the smaller Pixel 4 seems little out of whack when you consider Apple's new iPhone 11 packs a highly competitive feature set for $50 less. Despite all that, I can't help but love these phones, for their clean, clever software, their weird cameras and their ambition. This is the Android phone for me, and I'm willing to live with its flaws.

80% Google Pixel 4 and 4 XL Review: A small step forward
Source: Mobile Syrup English
Google made improvements to the camera and the design of the device, as well as finally adding more RAM to its Pixel line. The 4 series now also includes a face unlock feature that rivals Apple’s iPhone. The Pixel Neural Core not only improves the Pixel Visual Core, but also helps with the device’s ambient computing, which helps the device’s face unlock and Motion Sense improve over time. Unfortunately, Motion Sense might be the Pixel 4’s biggest undoing, since its current active features are limited and very unreliable.

Pixel 4 review: This phone-camera king cuts one too many corners
Source: Techspot English
Note that whereas face unlock is safe sufficient to authorize digital funds, it is not 100% infallible. Google acknowledges that somebody who seems to be such as you, similar to a twin, can unlock your cellphone. Face unlock additionally works along with your eyes closed or if you’re sleeping, which is an enormous vulnerability. (There are way more critical situations doable, however I can already think about my buddies with the ability to idiot round with my cellphone if I’m caught napping round them.) Face ID for the iPhone solely works in case your eyes are open, and at one level it seemed like Google would provide the identical option to customers, in response to the BBC. But it appears the corporate eliminated the choice, and nobody is aware of why. (Google didn’t instantly reply to a request for remark however has promised to repair the issue with a patch.)

Google Pixel 4 front camera review
Source: DxOMark English
The Google Pixel 4 front camera cannot set any new records, but it is capable of capturing nice selfies with good exposure, wide dynamic range, and pleasant colors in most conditions. Due to Google’s decision to go with a single-cam setup on the Pixel 4, bokeh mode is not quite as good as on the Pixel 3, with noticeably more depth estimation artifacts. We also noticed quite a lot of image noise in the shadow areas of our sample images, but other than that, the Pixel 4 puts in a solid still image performance across all test categories. It takes things up a notch for video and achieves one of the best scores so far, thanks in no small part to an outstanding stabilization system that ensures smooth and stable video clips in almost all recording situations. Overall, the Pixel 4 front camera is a solid all-rounder that should have special appeal to selfie video shooters.

First impressions of Google's most ambitious smartphone yet

In the camera, the HDR+ algorithm (which combines multiple exposures so you don't lose detail in highlights or shadows) now works in real time. That means before you've even taken the photo you can adjust two sliders independently to make sure the pic is exposed how you want. Night Mode has also been improved, with the promise that if you keep the phone steady (but not necessarily on a tripod), you can get detailed photos of the night sky. Obviously, while taking photos of the objects inside a dark box at Google's event proved to me that Night Mode still works, I'm very keen to see how it all goes in the great outdoors.

The New Assistant works quickly, allowing users to barrage it with questions and commands rapidly. The New Assistant accomplishes this through the combination of on-device machine learning and the ‘Continued Conversations’ feature.

Google Announces The Pixel 4 and Pixel 4 XL: The 2019 Pixels
Source: AnandTech English
Overall, the new Pixel 4 phones look interesting, and I think their success will depend solely on how the battery life of the 90Hz display ends up, and also if Google's camera has seen other improvements besides the aforementioned new features.

Google Pixel 4 XL

The Google Pixel 4 XL is a flagship smartphone made the Google way. Like its predecessors, it was designed and built by Google to give the best experience that Android can offer to rival Apple’s flagships and to force other Android based smartphone manufacturers to step up their games. It has the camera which takes the perfect shot every time, even when it's dark out. Best of all, it's built around the Google software, which users know and love that's always getting better. The Pixel 4 XL can take a picture of the Milky Way with one tap, in Night Sight mode. It’s called astrophotography, and it’s one of the many features that make the Pixel one of the best low-light cameras in the galaxy. Users can adjust the exposure balance of their photos before taking shots. Powerful controls let users manipulate color and exposure of the different elements in their picture. All this is achieved by the dual 16 MP + 12.2 MP rear camera and the 8 MP front camera. A big drawback though is the fact that the Pixel doesn’t actually include a wide-angle lens for that very important landscape photos. In 2019, and for something that’s heading into 2020, this is absolutely unacceptable. Google’s choice to not include one can only be seen as a step to not take away the sales from all other manufacturers. The Pixel 4 XL is powered by Qualcomm Snapdragon 855 Processor, 6 GB RAM and options of 64 GB or 128 GB storage, which is not really good enough for its price point. As for display, it features a 6.3" QHD+ flexible OLED display with a resolution of 3,040 x 1,440 pixels. Its display is good enough for a flagship, but like the Pixel 3, it doesn’t beat the competition. For connectivity, it has Wi-Fi 802.11a/b/g/n/ac, 2.4 GHz and 5 GHz, 2x2 MIMO and Bluetooth 5.0 + LE. The Google Pixel 4 XL has a new way to control the phone. It features Quick Gestures, letting users get things done without having to touch their phone. It’s great for when users are driving, cooking or enjoying their favorite food but that’s just in theory. In real life situations, it doesn’t make much sense other than the fact that its used to sense your presence to unlock the phone before you do it. Many other manufacturers have tried and failed at this and frankly, Google’s decision to go this way is quite baffling. This concept goes way back to the Samsung Galaxy S4, in which it terribly failed and with LG and Google trying to bring it back in 2019, we’d expect it to be perfected but it simple isn’t. The Google Pixel 4 has three color options to choose from, which are Just Black, Clearly White and Oh So Orange. As for power, users can quickly charge their phone with Pixel Stand. Users can also charge their Pixel 4 XL with any Qi-certified wireless charger. To extend battery life, the adaptive battery learns your favorite apps and reduces power to the ones users rarely use. The 3,700 mAh battery provides 30.7 hours talk time and 14 days standby time. As a conclusion, the Pixel 4 XL is an Android smartphone that has great camera and performance. It is one of the best Android smartphones released by Google to date. However, this high end Pixel 4 XL comes at a higher price tag. Hands-on article by Jagadisa Rajarathnam

70% Google Pixel 4 XL Review
Source: Tech Advisor English
The Google Pixel 4 XL delivers on the promises set out by Google at the phone's launch event, with a beautiful new 90Hz display, the fastest and most robust Google Assistant experience ever, plus impressive and eye-catching camera abilities from its new dual-sensor setup. However, everything that the Pixel 4 XL brings to the table each comes with a notable caveat that you'll have to consider before you make the decision to live with it.

94% Pixel 4 XL review: Recent updates make for a solid pure Android experience
Source: Techaeris English
While the Pixel 4 XL looks pretty standard on the hardware front, it really is the Android 10 OS and updates that set it apart from other OEM Android smartphones. It is a bit pricey at its full retail price but if you can get it on sale, it can be a very solid investment.

70% Google Pixel 4 XL review, one month later: A love-hate relationship
Source: Android Central English
The Pixel 4 XL has a fantastic camera, but basic issues on the hardware front prevent it from being a great phone. The battery life is woefully inadequate, and 64GB of storage is nowhere enough for a flagship in 2019. You're better off waiting for the inevitable discount before getting your hands on one.

Google Pixel 4 XL Review – six weeks on, still early days for this flagship
Source: Androidbeat English
So yes, the Pixel 4 XL can’t be recommended… yet. Let’s agree to reconvene in (say) February 2020, with more updates from Google and hopefully many updates from third parties, all bringing the Pixel 4 XL to life for real, and all allowing a proper long term review and verdict. It deserves it – I absolutely loved the hardware, the camera, the multimedia, but the gaping hole in the 4 series’ functionality still needs plugging.

Google Pixel 4 XL review: A solid upgrade with a few shortcomings
Source: Talk Android English
There are definitely some negative elements in this review. All are relatively minor and I could easily gloss over them, but for such an expensive phone that’s meant to represent the best of Android, it’s fair to nitpick. The design is solid, but also uninspired. Battery life is decent, but not exceptional. The screen is excellent, but too dim in direct sunlight. There’s no headphone jack, storage is capped at 128GB, the fingerprint scanner is gone and so on. Each is a minor quibble, but taken together they lesson what could be the Android phone of the year.

80% Google Pixel 4 and 4 XL review: The biggest upgrade Google has delivered so far
Source: Hardware Zone English
Is it worth the upgrade over the Pixel 3? I think that depends on what you want from your phone. The Pixel 3 is getting new features like the new astrophotography mode, and it also runs Android 10. It's basically the same core Google experience as the Pixel 4. But the Pixel 4 is also faster, has a much better screen, and a more capable camera. If you want the best possible experience from Google, upgrading is a no-brainer. But the Pixel 3 still takes very good photos, and if it's still serving you well, you can probably get by with the same monthly software updates.

Google Pixel 4 and Pixel 4 XL Camera Review: Shooting for the stars
Source: Mobile Syrup English
However, it’s no longer a clear leader running neck-and-neck with Huawei. Competitors closed the gap this year, and Google didn’t pull further away from the pack. Virtually all the new camera software features and modes were shipped out to Pixel 3, 3 XL and 3a devices via software updates, lessening the incentive to get the Pixel 4.

The Pixel 4XL is likely to age better (or mature faster) with new software updates, but unless you're after the best camera phone, its high price tag and and the quality of the competition make it quite hard to recommend Google’s new flagship.

80% Pixel 4 XL second opinion review: The Android phone I can't stop using
Source: Android Central English
It's expensive and the battery doesn't last as long as I'd like, but that hasn't stopped me from thoroughly enjoying my time with the Pixel 4 XL. This is a phone where the overall experience is greater than the sum of its parts, and at the end of the day, it's the Android handset I most eagerly reach for. For anyone that values excellent cameras, reliable performance, and fantastic software, it's one of the best gadgets you can buy this year.

The Google Pixel 4 XL Review: Stuck In The Past In 2019
Source: AnandTech English
Overall, the Pixel 4 frankly feels more like a device that would have been extremely successful if it had been released in 2018. Google releasing the phone this late in 2019 for prices of $799 for the regular version and $899 for the XL version just doesn’t make much sense. Those are also 64GB base variant versions by the way, you’ll have to pay an extra $100 for the 128GB models. I just can’t rationalise recommending the phones to anyone at their current price and given their compromises – Google has to either design and execute better, or give up on pretending they’re competing in the premium flagship segment and launch with prices about 25-30% lower.

Google Pixel 4 XL Review: Streaks Of Brilliance, Pure Android
Source: Hot Hardware English
Ultimately, there's a lot to love about Google's new Pixel 4 XL and the smaller Pixel 4 as well, but like most things in life there are trade-offs to consider here. Hats-off to Google for continuing to innovate with Motion Sense, great new camera features and technology (as well as shot quality), and top-notch general performance as always with a whistle-clean Android 10 OS setup. And there are further refinements and features forthcoming for Pixel 4 / 4 XL early adopters as well. As is typically the case with Google Pixel devices, you'll also get the latest Android software and platform innovations before virtually any other Android device manufacturer, if you decide to rock a Pixel 4 or Pixel 4 XL.

Specs don’t tell the whole story of a phone, and with the Pixel 4 series, this is good and bad. While the camera is mostly excellent and the phone is a top-notch performer (not to mention the new Google Assistant, which works more rapidly than ever before and is a worthy rival to Siri and Bixby), there’s disappointment to be found in the weak Pixel 4 battery, the lack of storage, the missing wide-angle camera and fingerprint scanner, and finicky Motion Sense.

80% Google Pixel 4 XL Review: A Big-Screen Phone with Smarts to Match
Source: Tom's Guide English
The Pixel will still be on the short list for anyone who wants a top camera phone, though the iPhone 11 Pro exceeds it in many ways. The Pixel remains the best way to experience Android, and exclusive features like Live Caption (which comes to other Android devices in 2020) and Recorder’s live transcription drive that point home for the Pixel 4 XL. That said, if you’re intrigued by the new Pixel’s 90-Hz refresh rate and want the latest version of Android on a big screen phone, the OnePlus 7T ticks both boxes and costs $300 less than the Pixel 4 XL.

75% Pixel 4 & Pixel 4 XL Review: Great, Just Not Compelling…

This is a hard one to call. The Pixel 4 XL, out of these two phones, is the one to go for; the battery life on the Pixel 4 just doesn’t cut the mustard, and in 2019 that is unacceptable. Both handsets are expensive, a little too expensive in my opinion. You can pick up an iPhone 11 one OnePlus 7T with more storage for less. And that is significant.

What Brought Me Back To The Pixel 4 XL [Video]
Source: Chrome Unboxed English
I don’t use Pixel phones because I don’t have another option. I choose to stay in the Pixel line of phones because I love the way Google leverages, sees, and utilizes Android. I like the way my phone works. I like the way the experience feels. I like all the intangible ways that this phone feels better to use than any other Android phone I’ve held. That’s ultimately why I’m sticking with the Pixel 4XL. It isn’t perfect and I don’t even think it is the right phone for everyone. It’s just the right phone for me.

Pixel 4 XL Review: This Isn’t an $899 Phone
Source: Droid Life English
The funniest part of all of this is, I can sit here and tell you how Google royally screwed this device up, but I still love it. The Pixel phone experience is the experience I prefer on smartphones, since all of the Google services that I require work like a charm. What Google did right on the phone they did very well, which for me includes Face Unlock and the overall hardware experience.

The Pixel 4 XL is the best that Google has to offer and if you don't mind paying a premium price and overlooking a couple of shortcomings at launch, then you'll be a happy camper with Google's new phone. If you'd rather get the most out of your $899, you might want to consider getting something else or wait until the phone is discounted (which usually happens around Black Friday).

80% Google Pixel 4 and 4 XL review: The biggest upgrade Google has delivered so far
Source: Hardware Zone English
Is it worth the upgrade over the Pixel 3? I think that depends on what you want from your phone. The Pixel 3 is getting new features like the new astrophotography mode, and it also runs Android 10. It's basically the same core Google experience as the Pixel 4. But the Pixel 4 is also faster, has a much better screen, and a more capable camera. If you want the best possible experience from Google, upgrading is a no-brainer. But the Pixel 3 still takes very good photos, and if it's still serving you well, you can probably get by with the same monthly software updates.

The Google Pixel 4 XL delivers on the promises set out by Google at the phone's launch event, with a beautiful new 90Hz display, the fastest and most robust Google Assistant experience ever, plus impressive and eye-catching camera abilities from its new dual-sensor setup. However, everything that the Pixel 4 XL brings to the table each comes with a notable caveat that you'll have to consider before you make the decision to live with it.

The latest Pixel phone is usually an easy recommendation, but this year’s phone is a bit of a conundrum. So here’s my recommendation: Now is not the time to buy a Pixel 4. The Pixel 4 has more untapped potential than any other phone I’ve used, but it fails at its most important job: being a phone that lives up to its own hype—and price.

The Face unlock and Google Assistant bugs are too glaring to overlook, and Motion Sense is in desperate need of new features. The camera is still one of the best, but the gap between it and its peers is practically nonexistent, and its tricks aren’t nearly as impressive with a second lens. And the specs are downright blah for a $900 phone. Even the Pixel launcher and the promise of three years of Android updates are less of a reason to buy, as Samsung ups its game with One UI.

Google Pixel 4 XL review: Untapped potential (Update: Now on sale!)
Source: Android Authority English
For everything I love about the Pixel 4 there’s something that disappoints me. It’s a hard phone to recommend, and to me at least, serves as a great advertisement for the Pixel 3. Perhaps Google will address some of the issues I’ve listed via future software updates, but we don’t review based on maybes. I really do like the Pixel 4, but I can’t shake the feeling it’s not good enough, not as good as it should be at this point. Like the cosmos, the Pixel 4 is full of wonders both big and small, yes, but it’s equally full of untapped potential and missed opportunities.

Despite appreciating many parts of this phone, at its current price and in its current state the Pixel 4 XL is a hard sell. As good as the camera, software and design are, the battery life, poor storage options and lack of an ultra-wide lens mean there are better options out there. For example, the OnePlus 7T is cheaper at £599, offers far more storage, a longer-lasting battery that charges more quickly whilst also retaining the 90Hz display. In most cases, you’ll also get just as good snaps from the £719/$699 iPhone 11 – and then, of course, there’s the truly excellent Pixel 3a and 3a XL.

At a time when the standards for what a flagship should and can be are shifting so radically, the Pixel 4 XL comes across as a little ordinary and by-the-numbers. It excels in all the ways that Pixel phones usually do but, if you're expecting a little more from it, it doesn't take long for it to fall short. Where some of the other options are looking for ways to become more, the Pixel 4 settles for just ways to become better.

The Google Pixel 4 XL is a handsome phone in its simplicity that, by the same coin, feels less impressive than its Android flagship counterparts. It doesn’t help that its new standout features are inessential, and erratically functional. But new interface improvements and a camera suite that’s better in both the hardware and software departments ensure that this phone stands up to be counted, even if it doesn't stand out from the competition.

This is easily Google's best-ever phone. The hardware is sleek and efficient, and Android 10 runs brilliantly. Google's little additions to the software differentiate it, face unlock works incredibly well, and this is the best Android camera available in all lighting. But the battery life is frustratingly bad, and it's hard not to feel short-changed paying this much for weak RAM and storage.

Source: Phone Arena English
The Pixel 4 and 4 XL are phone that really reflect Google’s focus on ‘ambient computing’, or technology that’s there whenever you need it and fades away when you don’t. It starts before you even hold the phone, with Soli waiting for you to reach for it to speed up unlock time. It’s there with the organic feel of the phone itself, and in the way Google Assistant is ready to step in and help, and then step away. It’s there in the way the software learns what you want from it so it can get it to you faster. It’s not just one flashy feature or new piece of hardware, it’s just the little ways everything fits together into a cohesive experience. It’s a bit difficult to concretely define, but this seamless, ambient experience is, to me, the greatest strength of the Pixel 4 series.

85% Google Pixel 4 and 4 XL review: A slightly flawed taste of the future
Source: Engadget English
I can't remember the last time I've been so torn on a pair of smartphones. On the one hand, Google didn't nail everything. Face Unlock is in need of a fix. The battery life is mediocre at best. Motion Sense, as magical it feels when it works right, isn't very useful yet. And the price for the smaller Pixel 4 seems little out of whack when you consider Apple's new iPhone 11 packs a highly competitive feature set for $50 less. Despite all that, I can't help but love these phones, for their clean, clever software, their weird cameras and their ambition. This is the Android phone for me, and I'm willing to live with its flaws.

Google made improvements to the camera and the design of the device, as well as finally adding more RAM to its Pixel line. The 4 series now also includes a face unlock feature that rivals Apple’s iPhone. The Pixel Neural Core not only improves the Pixel Visual Core, but also helps with the device’s ambient computing, which helps the device’s face unlock and Motion Sense improve over time. Unfortunately, Motion Sense might be the Pixel 4’s biggest undoing, since its current active features are limited and very unreliable.

It's official: On Tuesday Google formally announced the Pixel 4 and Pixel 4 XL. Finally! (Read our in-depth Pixel 4 and Pixel 4 XL reviews.) The Pixel 4 is one of the most leaked-about phones in recent memory. In fact, Google itself teased a photo of the 4 and the 4 XL back in June on Twitter. The new Pixel phones pack dual rear cameras, a 90Hz display, radar-powered face unlock process (here's how the Pixel 4's face unlock compared to the iPhone 11's Face ID when we tested both in four typical scenarios) and a slew of unique features like car crash detection and live video captioning.

Google today unveiled its latest Pixel smartphones, but they held few surprises for anybody. The Pixel 4 and 4 XL may be among the most-leaked devices in recent memory, and most of us probably knew most of what there was to know about the phone before the keynote even started. However, that's not to say that the Pixel 4 is boring or bad. Quite the contrary in fact – the Pixel 4 comes packed with a bunch of new technologies, making it perhaps the most exciting upgrade the Pixel line has gotten to date.

In the camera, the HDR+ algorithm (which combines multiple exposures so you don't lose detail in highlights or shadows) now works in real time. That means before you've even taken the photo you can adjust two sliders independently to make sure the pic is exposed how you want. Night Mode has also been improved, with the promise that if you keep the phone steady (but not necessarily on a tripod), you can get detailed photos of the night sky. Obviously, while taking photos of the objects inside a dark box at Google's event proved to me that Night Mode still works, I'm very keen to see how it all goes in the great outdoors.

One of the best features that the Google representative showed off was ‘New Assistant.’ Unfortunately, the new version of Google Assistant will not be coming to Canada at launch. The New Assistant works quickly, allowing users to barrage it with questions and commands rapidly. The New Assistant accomplishes this through the combination of on-device machine learning and the ‘Continued Conversations’ feature. With Assistant on-device, it works a lot faster as it doesn’t need the information from the Cloud.
