    How do the android strikers feel now?
    Google itself chose the way of iPhones! The camera module, no headphone jack, only face unlock. Say something :)

    HAHAHAHAHA can you imagine what this guy would be saying if this was a Samsung phone? He glosses over the shortcomings in the Pixel Phones but IS COMPLETELY FOCUSED on every single nitpicking item on a Samsung Phone, no matter how small. HAHAHAHAHA

    As a PIXEL LOVER it's heartbreaking to see the Pixel 4 being beat down like this. Battery life means sooooO much to me and it is the single most annoying thing about the phone. I am literally willing to look over EVERY other shortcoming of the Pixel if it wasn't for battery.

    I opted for the Razer Phone 2 instead, best decision ever! Better battery, 120Hz screen is a treat, great speakers, nice rgb logo, expandable storage. Best of all, got it for $400

    Huge fail on this phone. Why remove features? Why not keep at least rear fingerprint reader? Also, 64gb storage and 2800mah on a flagship? Is this 2015?

    I'll probably buy this phone because I am not a fan of Apple iOS & I love the fact that Google phones get the Android updates immediately. I currently own a Google Pixel 3 XL.

    I personally don’t think Google copied Apple in this. Their Pixel 4 was released a month or so after Apple released the iPhone 11’s, meaning that Google and Apple probably had similar ideas, just Apple released their phone first.

    Google you dropped the ball on this one. The hardware feels solid, but Android 10 is not ready for prime time, too many small nagging bugs and issues. Dropping the finger print scanner was a bad call.

    he is just a cheap guy who tells everyone to "THIS DEVICE" is great like pixel 4, however it's just a shit like all pixels except pixel 1...

  • TheeOhio StateBuckeyes

    Just received the pixel 4, I had the 3xl.
    The look sucks from the xl3, it's so small I can hardly see the keyboard even after enlarging it.

    I was thinking that I would switch. But now, I am actually happier about my phone. It lasts for a day with 5 hours of display-on time.
    Thank you Sony. XA1 Ultra (with 2700mAh battery and 6" display) is a great device.

    Why pixel 4 comes with usb c cable both sides. So , How do you connect the phone to the pc?. Or you have to buy cable normal usb or buy a pc with usb c port?. What a service for what it cost the phone?

      Really there isn't much innovation they can add do on a smart phone. Now it's a matter of keeping customers on their relative platforms.

    Totally agree and echo your comments. Google seriously needs to buck up their ideas next year, they've been quite rightly shredded by Linus and yourself. I held out all year hoping for at last a wicked phone ahead of its time, only to get let down again. It's as if they aren't putting the budget into it properly. The storage is a let down in this era, the camera app sucks, the removal of valid features and addition of almost useless ones just doesn't make sense. They seem to be losing the plot... Sad because the pixel XL 1 I have is still amazing!

    And the fact if you were in costume you would have to type your password the entire time. Who ever designed this phone should seriously be fired. They didn't see any problems with that?

    No fingerprint scanner, which means someone could unlock your phone while your sleeping definitely is a security failure. Also the gesture thing is incredibly dumb because if my alarm was going off and I swiped the wrong way because I'm half asleep it could really screw me over. And between not having the best camera or battery. This phone sounds like a big loser. Sad Google is losing quality 😢
