Have had the Pixel 4 XL for around 4 months for work and home
Loved the Pixel 2 and traded in the Pixel 3 after replacing 2 units for what I blame on bad software.
Switched to One Plus 6 XL good Phone, but the camera was not good in comparison to Pixel 2 or 3.
Decided to try Google again with the Pixel 4 XL. This is the best phone I have owned in years!

3. HotSpot Tethering
4. Andrioid 10

2. Sometimes Battery get drained faster than usual
If you are on the fence about this device.... Dont be any longer. I am very very satisfied!
Yes ooo am thinking weather i should buy it or go for oneplus 7 pro
It's my second comment on this device.
I have been using it around 5 months. I have nothing to complain like others.
I am not a gamer, but also I play some games such Mobile legend, and Freefire.
The result is good 👍 but not the best devices such other flagship smartphones.
I am using as normal, I check social media in general.
It's great to me, software working well with stock Android, and the important is camera. It is the best camera photo ever.
And the battery life is fine, not bad like some other said.
I will not return to another Android device, because I love it so much.
PwndByAChick, 28 Jul 2020How is battery life after the updates ? I am thinking to buy it I sincerely don't know why everyone complained about it or how much you can really stay on your phone on a daily basis (although the updates made it better) but on my usual usage (I don't play games but I use twitter, reddit, twitch, whatsapp, couple of calls, a lot of photos, Waze and all the other daily usual stuff) not only gets you through the day but on a lighter usage can even extend to two days.

I take apple iphone xs max as Google pixel 4xl and there's no need to buy iphone
What I believe would be an ideal follow-up (seeing the Pixel phones as basic Android phones with all the necessary hardware without going over the top):
Snapdragon 768G with global 4G/5G bands (1,2,3,5,7,20,28,41,66,71,77,78,79,both mmWave)
6.5" QHD+ P-OLED with 90Hz refresh rate and HDR10+; AOD; In-Display Fingerprint Reader; with symmetrical bezels
6GB RAM/128GB ROM; 8GB RAM/256 ROM (LDDPR5 and UFS 3.0)
As much as I want expandable memory, it's not happening here.
Front-Facing Stereo Speakers
Headphone Jack (I can only hope since the 3a/3a XLs topped a lot of sales for Pixels)
4,500mAH battery minimum
QuickCharge 4 to charge 21W wired
15W wireless charging
10W OTG charging with 10W reverse wireless charging
16MP Ultrawide SONY IMX499 with EIS, 2.2 aperture and Autofocus
16MP Wide SONY IMX519 with OIS and 1.7 aperture
16MP Telephoto SONY IMX498 with OIS with 3X Optical zoom and 2.4 aperture
Being able to take 4K@60fps to 1080p@960fps video
16MP Selfie SONY IMX519 with EIS and 2.0 aperture
ToF sensor for depth and better facial recognition
Being able to take 4K@30fps video
All GPS profiles
Bluetooth 5.1 with AptX HD
The obvious 3 years of OS upgrades and 5 years of security patches
All this for the starting price of $750 and I would be sold honestly. Pixel would regain ground by being the best midrange device on the market with its camera and software support. At least also the battery would be adequate and using it would be nothing more than simple.

Adel J, 03 Jul 2020I get 7 hours of screen on time so stop spreading lies.what's that buddy? talking about screen time? how about you fix your attitude first. And by the way, Google stomps on ya. Peace, Wilson OUT.
I have just finished finishing updating 11 beta version, now I am facing a problem with flickering flare, so would I do with it?
Or I need to wait till the final version release?

My understanding is it depends at which stages the units are from. As some the hardware inside is different and may not give u the best performance nor updates like retail units. and selling away the testing units are illegal :)

Not a bad phone but not worth the original asking price.
Great camera for casual photographers. Zippy performance for casual use (Google tend to overclock their phones tho). Screen is decent but max brightness lets it down.
Main drawbacks are the average battery life, lack of FP scanner for security apps, and the design is divisive. I think the Pixel 3 had a better back. Google shamelessly copied Apple with that ugly camera square, even though Apple used it to house three cameras, Google only used it for two. ????
I have owned this (Xl) the original 4 the 3a and the Oneplus 7t Pro Mclaren all in the span of 8 months, i can honestly say this has been my favorite out of these. The UI and the camera are the reason you get this phone. The android experience is the cleanest you can get and the camera hangs wit the best of them. Battery life is good, maybe not the best but can defiantly make it through a day of heavy usage, the regular 4 WILL NOT. Face unlock makes it hard for me to use anything else, it feels archaic using fingerprints with other devices after this.
Your share is wonderful, thank you for these helpful shares (http://bacmientayreal.vn/product-category/dat-nen)
Hi, I'm from Malaysia. I'm been using Pixel line since Pixel OG up until Pixel 3. Considering to upgrade to Pixel 4. Now i found lot of seller, sell so called Pixel 4 / 4 XL factory testing unit. it is exactly identical only without the google logo. they claimed that the unit will also get software update the only missing is face ID which is disabled for the unit. Is it legit?
