The Pros and Cons of Google Pixel 4 XL

  • Excellent still camera


  • Battery life only average
  • Video quality and features don’t match the stills
  • No ultrawide camera


Google Pixel 4 & 4XL Design

The Pixel 4 and the iPhone 11 look almost alike. The Pixel 4 comes with a black color aluminum rail around the edge. This significantly helps the Pixel 4 stand out. Although the camera of the Pixel 4 looks like those of the iPhone 11, its overall design and feel are very unique.

Pixel 4 comes in three different colors all of which have Gorilla Glass 5 on the back. On the other hand, the orange and black variants have matte finishes and the glossy finish of the black model makes it more preferred. One of the downsides of Pixel 4 is that it does not have a headphone jack, but it comes with a USB-C port.

Now let’s look in detail at the features that make Pixel 4 and 4 XL stand out.

Google Pixel 4 & 4XL Face Unlock

This new feature in Pixel 4 works much like the Face ID on iPhone. Its projector shouts out a broad array of infrared dots that are seen and read by the camera. One of the good things about the Face Unlock in Google Pixel 4 is that it cannot be tricked with a video or photograph the way the face unlocks on OnePlus and Samsung can be tricked. It also works well in all lighting conditions.

The Face Unlock on Pixel 4 does not care if your eyes are closed or open. This makes it less secure compared with the Face unlock on Apple devices which do not allow this. Someone can unlock your Pixel 4 even while you sleep, he only needs to hold the phone to your face. Google announced a software update that will add eye detection to the face unlock on Pixel 4.

However, at the moment, the surest options to lock a Pixel 4 are the use of a long passcode and remembering to turn on the “lockdown” button in the power menu if you suspect that someone might unlock your phone with your face. Face unlock is faster, and seamless and any time any day is preferred to fingerprint sensor or even in-screen.


Google Pixel 4 & 4XL Motion Sense

This new technology is based on a project called Project Soli, which Google has been working on for some time now. It can detect heartbeats and movements as subtle as the flutter of a butterfly wing. It’s more like a radar on your phone. It can also detect your presence and also it can tell if you are reaching for the phone. Pixel 4 can react and start doing something as your hands approach it and before you grab it.

This feature works well on alarms and even ringtones. When you have a call, your phone ring at normal volume but as soon as you reach for the phone, it lights up the face unlock sensor immediately and the ringing volume reduces until you mute or takes other actions.

Google Pixel 4 & 4XL CAMERA

Pixel 4 and 4 XL come with a 2x telephoto camera lens and gives much better output than the iPhone 11 Pro. Google significantly improved the telephoto image on Pixel 4. It has two camera lenses at the back and one on the front which is set to a 90-degree field of view.

On the other hand, the video on Pixel 4 disappointingly maxes out at 4k at 30FPS.


Performance and Smooth Display

The pixel 4 has an impressive baseline performance score, although its operating system, Qualcomm Snapdragon 855 cannot be compared with the silicon on iPhone. On the other hand, the battery life of the Pixel 4 is not very impressive. Pixel 4 has a 2,800mAh battery which could last for about four hours of screen-on time, which is about a day of moderate use. Google Pixel 4 XL, however, can last for a full day of fairly consistent use.

Pixel 4 comes with 6GB RAM. It has an OLED display with good resolution, viewing angles, and colors. Pixel 4 also has a 90Hz refresh rate, which of course is good news.

The New Assistant

This feature help translate voice to text without server assistance. What this means is that when you speak to Google Assistant, it translates, right on your phone, your voice into text. This feature, for now, is only available in English. Unfortunately, Google Assistant does not work if you have your G-Suite work account activated.

The new built-in voice recorder, called Recorder can turn speech into text in real time. It transcribes without needing an internet connection. This feature is in fact godsend for journalists, students, or anyone who translates voice into text frequently. The transcribed text and the original audio can also be exported to Google Drive easily.
