It’s also available on all four major US carriers for the first time. The price starts at $799. Here’s The Verge review of the Pixel 4 with Dieter Bohn.

  • Battery life is becoming more and more key. If you want all of these high end features you need at least a 6000 mAh battery to make a go of it.

  • Hy.. I have a question.. did anyone have problems with pixel 4xl? ( I have changed 2 phones with the same problem..: battery stuck at 50 %, and after a while (2-3 day) the phone dies!! I send the first one to repair it,they ve send me another one,and after 3 days the phone had the same issue.. of that,my brother had the same 3 phones with this problem! And I don't see any AR-toor speaking of this..

  • FINALLY a review that mentions it all. I watched 10 reviews yesterday, or rather last night, and not a single one mentioned the infrared sensor. Sounds amazing. What those reviews focused on was the bad battery life. Man, those people have had a hard-on for that issue. So negative.

  • Im pro Photographer before dicting to either one I had the 11 pro for 2 weeks and then the XL4 was a keeper Why ? (1) Im super fine without Wide (2) Tele is better than I thought (3) the 11 pro had lots of misses especially (colors greadations & surface details) whish was making me uncomfortable to take for shootings. Now in regards the Video quality 1080 =60 frames is truly awesome if I need 4K I can take my Mark 4. The rest is a matter of Democrats & Republicans :) Ps; What counts It's hard to miss shots with 4XL. Great Video Verge!!!!!

  • Very good review, I waited 6mos for a price drop. Picked up the 4xl for 599.00. That price I can live with. I don't really know what Google does with it's software but this phone is blazing fast with only 6gigs of ram. Is it the 90hz display which I keep forced on. The 🔋 gets me on average 6hrs SOT, not bad? Night sight in best in class & the 90hz display is excellent. Happy I waited for the price reduction!

  • Nice review, thanks. How do you rate it now since it is $300 less. $699 4xl 128gb black only, white gone. You can get black or white for 599 64 gb. Seems like a nice bargain to me. I have a 2 xl which I have enjoyed and it is as good as the day I got it.....except I just had a new batt put in for $80. I know a lot of folks who would like to have it, Im sure not a problem giving it away. Again, thanks for a super review, lots of thought went into it.

  • Half a year later and I managed to get a Brand new Pixel 4 for 470€ at That Price Point the Pixel is really worth it! I hope with the 4a they stick to the 350-400 and get the pixel 5 down to 600. Seems to be a possibility when they are not using a flagship CPU anymore

  • OMG, really? This Soli thing. Have we really gotten this lazy? What a completely pointless option. I don't understand why waving your hand over a phone is a good idea anyway? What happens if you do it accidently? You could do some stupid luke buy something you never expected to buy,or close something that wasn't supposed to be closed. What a really stupid feature. And the phone knows when you are away from it or not? What, like some needy girlfriend? I am taking it Google are getting desperate for new "features" they can charge their customers and they are really scraping the bottom of the barrel now! Also, wasn't this motion thing used on the Nintendo WIi back in 2007? Way to go Google with your up-to-date technology! Good job! Soon you will be saying your ABC's without prompting! Now, let's get your diaper changed.

  • Got pixel 4 after waiting a few months for all the inevitable bugs to be fixed. I got a s20 ultra for a while and used it for 40 days. Have to say I'm enjoying the phone. Saving 800$ doesn't hurt. And I didn't downgrade I feel. The camera is frankly better and much more consistent and takes much better portrait photos.

  • The perfect phone...!!!

  • I haven't had a pixel since pixel 2. I wasn't to fussy on stock android then. A bit boring. In-between iv had nervous phones including the OnePlus 7t pro. Oxygen OS is what I always thought stock android should be. Anyway I have the pixel.4 now to keep me going until I get my S20 ultra. I have to say I'm mightly impressed.with what Google have done with vanilla android. For the first time ever I haven't wanted to use nova launcher. I find that stock pixel android is as good as Oxygen OS I never ever thought I'd say that! It's not quite as fast but with 90hz forced to work all the time it's nearly as smooth as Oxygen OS. There really it much in it anymore. I think if I had to pick. Stock would win me over simply because of the faster updates . But well done Google great software improvement. Not so great on.the hardware though! Still a long way to go with pixel phones. To many little niggles. I mean.the screen is to narrow on.tje 4...
