Google Pixel 4 XL review: Six months later, it’s an affordable flagship

 

Google's Pixel 4 XL is a powerful and smart Android phone and it delivers an excellent screen, a killer camera, intuitive software, and helpful hands-free gestures, but it falters on battery life, struggling to go a full day.

Excellent cameras ; Great performance ; Bright, sharp, and smooth 6.3-inch screen ; Face Unlock is fast ; Genuinely helpful, smart software

Battery life isn't great ; Barely any apps support Face Unlock ; Paltry 64GB of storage

Google Pixel 4 and 4 XL review: A slightly flawed taste of the future

 

Google's Pixel phones have a reputation for thoughtful software and impressive cameras, but this year's Pixel 4 represents a step in a new direction. Motion Sense makes it possible to control the phone without touching it, and some key improvements...

MotionSense feels like the future ; “Smooth” display looks great ; Speedy performance ; Google Assistant is faster and smarter ; Great camera experience

Motion Sense is finicky ; Face Unlock could be more secure ; Middling battery life ; Slightly dull design

Ultimately, the Pixel 4 phones feel like something of a transitional step between the status quo and the future of smartphones. They were bound to be a little awkward, sure, but they get enough right that they're worth embracing, shortcomings and all.

The big-screen Pixel 4 XL is nearly identical to the Pixel 4, which includes the excellent camera, secure face unlock and expensive price.

 

The big-screen Pixel 4 XL is nearly identical to the Pixel 4, which includes the excellent camera, secure face unlock and expensive price.

The Pixel 4 XL has a big screen that refreshes 90 times a second, so everything looks real smooth. It also takes outstanding photos, and its face unlock is the fastest we've seen.

The phone is expensive, doesn't come with earbuds and has no expandable storage option.

There's no denying the Pixel 4 XL has one of the best cameras around, but its shortcomings don't justify its high price. Instead, consider the Note 10 or the OnePlus 7T. The Pixel 3 XL is another great candidate and is discounted at $600 now.

Google Pixel 4 XL review: Half great, half-baked

 

If you absolutely need to have the newest Android features and want to be on the Pixel's bleeding edge, then buy a Pixel 4. Otherwise, wait for a few updates—or for the Pixel 5.

Cool new features advance Android into a new era ; The camera is still great, even if competitors have caught up

Flaws and shortcomings undermine new features ; Battery life is just OK ; RAM, storage, and design underwhelm for a premium phone

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 Google Pixel 4 XL Review: Stuck In The Past In 2019

 

Amongst the last big smartphone releases of 2019 is Google's Pixel 4 series. Google's own flagship devices come late in the generational product cycle whose timing is mostly dictated by the SoC release schedule – it's always hard to be able to make a...

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...

Pixel 4 XL review: Recent updates make for a solid pure Android experience

 

Even though it's a bit later than the other reviews, our Pixel 4 XL review is based on, in my opinion, a better device than it was at launch.

More refined design ; Smooth Display w/ 90Hz refresh rate ; Great performance ; All day battery life ; Motion Sense has potential ; Face Unlock works well ; Fantastic camera, including low light shooting

No fingerprint scanner ; No 4K60 video option ; Face Unlock currently works with eyes closed ; Motion Sense is limited in functionality ; No more full resolution Google Photo storage ; A bit on the pricey side

Google Pixel 4 XL review: Untapped potential

 

The Google Pixel 4 and Pixel 4 XL are great phones in several respects, but they misfire far more often than they should at this price point. The major sticking points are battery life and the reliability of some new hardware features, making them hard...

Excellent 90Hz OLED display ; Great performance ; Incredible camera ; Clean and fluid software ; Bold design and good build quality

Poor battery life ; Limited storage options ; Radar is unreliable ; Face unlock not fully supported ; Google Assistant quirks ; No real progress with video
