    • I can not find any reason to buy Pixel 4 : Design : poor battery : poor performance : poor Camera: only good Poor is for the price offered compared with other smartphones , even I'm a pixel fan will never buy it with this price. Hope one day understand people gonna buy it too .

  • Can anyone tell me why a phone which boasts one of the best cameras and a phone renowned for its camera does not provide a manual setting? Forget about wide and all. This should be the basic criteria.

  • To everyone saying they hate it based on the specs. Just wanted to say I have the Pixel 4 XL and it is a dream to actually use. Sometimes the specs don't tell the story. Yeah it has a forehead but at least that means the whole screen is in the clear, there's no annoying pinhole or bezel.

  • I just don't understand why most people who pretend to know more about phones always focus on camera, refresh rate, the bezel, the forehead, and what not. But not even talking about what you can do with the phone as a means of productivity. Why did we even upgrade from a PDA to a smartphone? Because we wanna do more than just write a document from our phone or make a spreadsheet on the go. I thought the best thing about smartphones was the ability to read/write emails and browse the internet whenever you want instead of needing to be on a PC? Google has given us that, to have access to our files whenever we want. Isnt that amazing? But no because we want a headphone jack, we want a thinner forehead, a bigger memory. You are missing the point of having a smartphone. Convenience. Remember, Google started out as a search engine. Google has Google Drive, so a physical memory is not needed on the Google Pixel since your phone is connected to Cloud. Next time, please dont forget about other Google products since they also did that with the Chromebook. Now? Doesn't it make sense?

  • Dave Lee u mean 64gb of internal storage not ram becuase if we had 64gb of ram we would never need a new phone ever again

  • Hey Dave, very good review. Yes, overpriced for what's offered. The 90hz refresh is the saving grace. But the smallish 🔋 definitely hurt these two. Plus no ultrawide is a downer. 🔋 anxiety is not a road I wish to travel? The 📷 are great per usual but 1,ooo dollars for the 128gb XL is way too much for what it has?

    David MartranoDavid Martrano3 หลายเดือนก่อน
  • The biggest question is... Is it worth 2x the price of a Pixel 3a. Answer is NOPE!... Pixel 3a is all I need and I came from a P20 Pro that I ended up dropping. Its only once you go back that you realise who the fuck is all that ram and cpu power for?...

  • Hey Dave, the pixal4's are very nice but I feel their overpriced for what's offered. What else is new? I chose the 3a XL over both of these. I got it for 4oo.oo bucks tax included. This made me & my pocketbook very happy. No 🔋 anxiety with this guy. Am I missing much? Yeah, alittle, but the 💰 I saved made the difference? Besides the 📷 is just about the same. The 670aprocesser works admirably, no lags or stutters. On average 7to8hrs SOT, not to shabby. I think I made the right choice for me? Very good review!

  • How's the battery if you turn the 90hz off though? I'm quite interested but I feel most reviews reflect a heavy users usage compared to not so heavy users. Also where would the line be drawn of light to medium usage vs a heavy usage?

    Anthony FellAnthony Fell4 หลายเดือนก่อน
    • The battery lasts longer since the 90hz screen uses the battery. If you text and social media vs gaming and watching videos.

      Billy ChangBilly Chang4 หลายเดือนก่อน
  • Yeah I like my Google pixel. So sad I had to wait all year for a phone with out a notch!!! Or camera cut out. If I have to explain why spending money on a phone without a full screen( and it isn't a full screen with a notch or camera cut out. it's geometry and math ) is a bad idea I don't know how to help you.

  • I had a OnePlus 7 Pro and it was pretty overrated. Maybe because, as a gaymer, I'm used to looking at and playing on a 240 Hz monitor all the time. I really don't think it's even a slightly worthwhile feature and if going back to 60 Hz would cut phone pricing, I'll take it 10/10.

  • Hey Dave, you need to spend a little more time with a phone before reviewing it. I'm writing from my small Pixel 4, it's absolutely addictive. It's a whole new animal. The intuitive connection to Google Assistant is phenomenal. The ability to transcribe from voice into writing faster than any other phone, without the need for an internet connection, is a jewel. The telephoto camera is stunning, far more useful than the wide angle. But as you say, it's that lightening fast response that makes it addictive, with faster face recognition than iPhone 11 , this phone is an animal! The battery easily lasts the day in "normal use."
