Pixel 4 and 4 XL Launched: Not for a Normal User

The successors to Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL have arrived at the market. Google has showcased its two flagships smartphones, the Pixel 4 along with Pixel 4XL at the Made By Google 2019 event. While the Pixel 4 and its sibling come with several camera improvements, new secure Face Unlock feature and other wizardries. Google’s decision to solely focus on these features has left other prime areas compromised.

Let’s see what Google has to offer with Pixel 4.

Overview

The Pixel 4 and 4XL come with bezel design, replacing the notch feel from last year’s Pixel 3XL. Pixel 4 has a 5.7-inch P-OLED display with a smoother 90Hz refresh rate. The display resolution is Full HD – 1080 x 2280 pixels at 444 PPI.

The bigger brother Pixel 4XL is significantly larger at 6.3 inches display and slightly heavier too. It is a quad HD phone with 1440 x 3040 pixels at 537 PPI. There is also a feature that senses your presence if you’re near the device, which in turn enables AOD(Always on Display) on them. The display on this year’s pixels is industry standards as DisplayMate has rated an A+.

Camera

Talking about cameras, both devices have the same hardware as with most things here. There is the same 12.2 MP wide camera as in Pixel 3 but there also a 16 MP telephoto lens with 2x optical zoom. Just like the dual rear camera, there is also a dual front camera system with one 8 MP wide lens along with a TOF 3D camera.

You can record 2160p at 30fps at the back and 1080p at 30 fps with the selfie camera. New upgrades have been made with improved HDR+ and “Astrophotography” mode, which is among Google’s own innovations.

CPU and Performance

On the inside, Pixel 4 and 4XL both are run by Octacore Snapdragon 855 coupled with Adreno 640 GPU. These commonly used flagship chipsets are designed to handle extreme loads and run games, movies, music, and everything fluently. You can expect fluid and smooth performance in whatever you run on them.

Google’s latest Android 10 is present on the phones, with no extra overlays just like their predecessors. Of the things that we don’t quite understand about the device is their storage. Pixel 4 and 4XL start from just a 64GB model. While 6GB RAM sounds good enough, even though the competitors within this price range have more to offer, just a mere 64 GB storage doesn’t fit today’s expectation. The higher versions have 128GB storage, which still feels less.

Battery

The Pixel 4’s battery also seems unenthusiastic among several other things. At just 2800 mAh, it’s far low than what its competitors pack in even medium-end devices. Surprisingly it’s even low than Pixel 3. So we can hardly muster up on what made google do this.

So for those who need more battery power in this year’s Pixel will have to go for the 4XL, which has 3700mAh battery. Added to that, the 18W charging will also be not able to charge as fast as 50W charging found in today’s flagships. There is nonetheless, Qi Wireless charging in the phones.

Colours and Availability

The devices have the same available colours; Clearly White, Just Black and Oh So Orange. It’s not yet confirmed we’ll get these phones in Nepal as there is no authorized distributor of Google in Nepal. They’ll surely be not available in India as per the report, due to issues of Motion Sense and banning of 60GHz in a spectrum band.
