  • I just bought one brand new for 500,- euro's. Worth the money. Sold the 11 pro for the pixel. Battery life is not bad at all. Almost 7 hours screen on time with 90hz and almost 100% brightness.

  • I got my 4xl 4mos ago for 599.00. Definitely worth that price. It is blazing fast and even keeps up with the speed demons one plus? With forced 90 hz with the 1440p blows me away? 6 hrs SOT, very acceptable for my uses. The user experience is the best, a tough phone to put down? At the reduced prices it's an excellent purchase. Go find a better 📷, you won't!

  • I just watched this video on my Pixel 4a and so far I have enjoyed it. I had aajor issue with my Pixel 3, so I had to live on my original Pixel from a few years back. Compared to that phone, this one is way slimmed, lighter, better battery life, and the screen and camera run quite well. I really think this phone is the best one for the money at this time.

    • @Josh C I just bought a Note 20 Ultra for $900 with trading in my Note 9. The google Pixel 4xl is a mid range phone with a premium phone price tag $900. Therefore, the google pixel 4xl is a rip off.

  • Yeah I ended up going with the S20 , the only reason I considered the pixel 4 was for the size. But I got scared of the battery life. So I went with the s20. I think if you want a small badass phone go with pixel ,but if size doesn't matter and just want a beautiful mid size phone go with the s20.

    Thomas HickeyThomas Hickey2 أشهر قبل
    • Thomas Hickey The pixel 4xl’s battery has apparently been improved- 6hours on 90 hz. The camera is great, but the video is a bit lacking. I think I’m going to go with the s20

      namcicle 351namcicle 3512 أشهر قبل
    • @namcicle 351 go with the s20 , the pixel 4 weighs the same and its just a hair shorter than the s20. I went to the store to check them out side by side and yes the pixel camera is amazing ,but I don't want to be charging it all the time. I had my s20 on and going all day yesterday and it made it to 5 oclock in the morning and that was me using it all day and taking a ton of videos. S20 officially wins in my book. Mainly when I found out they weigh the same. The pixel actually weighs more by .01 not enough to kill it but still. The s20 has beautiful display and has face recognition as well so the pixel has nothing in my book now.

      Thomas HickeyThomas Hickey2 أشهر قبل
    • @namcicle 351 yeah well I'm using the s20 right now and I mean it is absolute butter. But just still big. But I think I'm going to keep it. I think after having this battery and display it will feel like major step back with pixel. But If your a not often phone user the pixel 4 is perfect.

    • Thomas Hickey Nah- I have one week to decide.

      namcicle 351namcicle 3512 أشهر قبل
    • @namcicle 351 so I guess you went with the pixel then?......yeah I still have time to decide ,I'm leaning towards just keeping the S20 just because it is id say the perfect medium between a big phone and a small phone. But dang it I really only upgraded to get a small phone haha and ended up with one just a tiny bit smaller than my S9 plus.

  • You're definitely right about the screen attention feature. I haven't used the Pixel, but Samsung's Note 3 had it and I looooved that feature... and then they pulled it off with the Note 4 because people complained about bloatware, and somehow that's what they thought they meant.

I have a google pixel 4 xl and i love everything about it although i wish the battery life was better and that the phone was a little less buggy i feel that this will change very soon as google matures in their smartphone line

  • It is the best smartphone that I've ever owned. I can honestly say that the biggest benefit the Pixel has over ever device is the integration of the A.I. and neural core. The device is thinking and learning to perform better. It is strange to see a machine make adjustments based on it's growing confidence that it knows you and what is best for you. Ex. It knows that I like my screen brightness at 51% in the man cave and 30% in the bedroom. This is the adaptive display feature.

  • Be careful what you wish for, you don't ultimately want Google AI determining who can call you even if their initial intention of doing spam sounds good. Google already monitors where you go, what you do, what you buy, who messages you, who you know, your contact details, what time you get up, sleep, work etc etc etc etc etc etc etc

  • The pixel 4 is possibly the crappiest phone made for 2020. No fingerprint ID when you're wearing a mask more than half the time sucks the d.and the fact that the speaker's vibrate your hand so much you feel like it's going numb even on low is a shity thing too. This phone is garbage all around and that's why I'm glad I returned it in less than two weeks and didn't have to pay a restocking fee. Google needs to take some notes from the first pixel and make it waterproof and wireless charging. And it would be the perfect phone
