The reviews are so bad on both pixals I'm buying the 128gb XL anyway. The design is boring but I for one like it. The camera will still be a wonderful experience. The soli-radar is a gimmick but will get better? I will wait for black friday & save a few $$. I don't care what the reviewers say, I'll judge it for myself. Maybe it should have 8gb's & 128gb's of base storage. I don't think the 6gb's of ram will be a problem with performance!

It is true that once you start using face unlock ya get used to it. My stuff works even at night...I never gave it a chance but once I did I've never looked back

Is this phone a better buy over the OnePlus 7 Pro? It'll take a lot of convincing for me to consider the Pixel 4 XL.

I wish project soli was MORE flakey! It switches songs when I don't want it to all the time lol

If you're worried about face unlock going when you're sleeping, just turn on lockdown before you go to sleep. I dunno why no reviewer has mentioned this

3 reasons why I ordered it : 1) Fastest Android updates 2) Camera 3) It's kinda clean inside (My own opinion)

This review made me buy the phone, and then all the other reviews tore it apart savagely. I still enjoy it. Love the face unlock and the telephoto. Best software on any phone.

Is it really smooth with no dropped frames? For me it's either this or galaxy

But why did I choose to upgrade from my S8 to a P4XL? Because Android. To say the VERY least. Edit: Thank you for a frank, balanced and fair comparison.

I have loved every pixel I've ever had. I like not having bloatware that I don't want, pixel only comes with Google products. The phone is made to work with these apps and it does it well.

Hey everyone! I'm a pixel fun. Have every XL version. Everytime was unlucky with the screen - burns a lot. Software is great and camera blew me away, BUT: 11 PRO has much bigger battery and screen is not so dim...with even a little bit worse camera but with wide lense and better video...I really don't know which one to buy. Thank you for all responses. Price is not a concern

Matte rails = nice; glossy surfaces are fingerprint magnets. Apple owner, but hate Apple Design's philosophy of "lets make great renders" vs "lets make products that can survive wear, or wear down gracefully." Hate it.

These are my requirements with the phones I want to buy... - Small - Flagship SoC - Close to stock Android that's upgradeable to Pie - No software version higher than 9 out of the box That's only 4 requirements but I'm still having a hard time finding a smartphone that fits that mold or I might already own them. Pixel 4 disqualifies itself because it will come with Android 10 which I'm trying to avoid. Pixel 3 Essential Phone Nokia 8 Sirocco Pixel 2 Pixel Sony Xperia XZ1C & XZ2C don't have the gestures I prefer. So the only one from that list I would get is the Nokia 8 Sirocco. I believe the Snapdragon 835 was the most efficient flagship SoC they released since the 800/801. And the Sirocco also has 260 mAh more than my Essential and slightly smaller display to make the battery life even last longer. I could easily get the Pixel 1 or 2 but I already owned the former and feel the 3 is better than either one except for maybe battery life and lacking the headphone jack of the 1. Buying a Pixel 1 or 2 would just feel redundant. There's really no phone out there I want to buy. The Nokia 8 is a little too tall similar to the size of an iPhone XR / 11 / 3a while its Sirocco sibling has similar dimensions to the Essential. Except I hate curved displays. If I want to retire my Pixel 3 and Essential in a few years, I will have a difficult time replacing them. I refuse to use any Android version that breaks my Call Blacklist Pro app. I could settle for a Razer Phone 1 or 2 but they're too big. I'm hoping the next Motorola RAZR comes with Pie out of the box. Tough out there to find a phone that can meet my 4 requirements. I know the Pixel 4 won't meet it thanks to Android 10.

I stopped watching after less than a minute when he said the huge top bezel was ok and he got used to it. hello? have you seen phones that cost 1/4 the price of this phone that have no bezel? sorry, but that right there told me this guy is paid off.

Only 64 and 128GB and no wide angle lens is kind of a deal breaker. Edit: Not to mention the battery size.

the very reason that you mentioned about Deep Fusion and no unlimited storage makes this a fair review.

he gets what the pixel 4 is about better than most reviewers, even mkbhd whined about this losing the point of whom the phone is targetting and at whom this is aimed for, although it isn't available here in India i would have bought it if it launched, i have the pixel 3 xl and it's awesome and people with 9-5 jobs who prefer android, there's no better phone.

No 3.5mm audio jack, no physical fingerprint sensor, no memory expansion slot, no thank you.

Could you also make a camera comparison with the p30 pro to see how much the zoom can do on the pixel 4? Great video, love the content!!

This has been the most complimentary review of the pixel I’ve seen so far. Many others disagree on battery life, the inconsistent 90hz display (which if you want it on constantly you have to go into the dev menu) and the fact that the pixels face unlock isn’t secure.
