I'll be getting the Pixel 4 beacuse it's finally not a huge phablet, and it's not weaker than the XL version
more companies should do a smaller, compact version of their flaship models.

I love setting up my home page/s to look however I want and keep it fresh, new and exciting. You, on the other hand, get stuck looking at the same app covered screen with your background wallpaper barely seeping through. lulz

It's fine if you like the phone, but I don't. I think it's a rip-off that sacrifices too much. Don't try to shove your opinion down my throat by invalidating mine with petty insults.
Pixel XL 4 is great, 31 Oct 2019Motion sense is not unreliable at allFace unlock is very reliable on the Pixel 4XL. It's very fast too. I couldn't believe it.

here is google and thier so called "security" https://youtu.be/hLjht9uJWgw
They steal you info and they do not even protect your privacy. your privacy is all online for everyone to see lol. no security what so ever. So yea have fun with you Google spy/malware apps.
I also get around 1and half day of usage on my pixel 4 XL phone.
I have been using the phone for a week and have found no issues with the phone.

Unconvinced about the review as using the 7T Pro which whilst aesthetically very pleasing I can't really connect to other for basic functional purposes. Will be getting the Pixel 4XL tomorrow, hopefully. P.S. I do not find the battery on my Oneplus7t Pro exceptional, see link below, it ran out quicker than the P 4XL in real time test...
Don't always believe what you read...!
Very good review, especially the conclusion and the pros and cons.
However ,no way does this phone deserve a 4/5 rating .Makes me think Google paid for that rating (rating only ,not review) or maybe GsmArena are scared of the consequences of giving this phone a 2.5 or 3 rating which is what it deserves.

Real lif... moreProbably to make sure the Battery Endurance Rating is as accurate as possible.If they dit it manually it would be very easy to end up with slight variance in numbers of calls, screen on time and so on.
Why are they using a app to test for battery?! Why don't they actually use the phone? Real life people aren't using an app to see how long their battery last!
I'm on day two of using the Pixel 4XL and I get about 16 hours battery life. I haven't turned on the battery draining features yet, but I do use the phone for about 6 hours of navigation, 6 hours of music, internet here and there and an occasional video or game...
Start testing the phone in real life... You're suppose to be testing the phone... Not an app.

"To accomplish this task, Safari receives a list of websites known to be malicious from Google, and for devices with their region code set to mainland China, it receives a list from Tencent. The actual URL of a website you visit is never shared with a safe browsing provider and the feature can be turned off”
"Apple offered ZDNet a further description of how the system works. It says Google and Tencent are “sending a copy of the database to a user’s browser and letting the browser check the URL against this local database,” so traffic never actually reaches those companies. It also says that Tencent’s blacklist is only used inside mainland China where Google domains are banned"

Lol coz Android is simply better and provides that EXTRA whether it is in features, software, hardware or functionality and security.
iOS is a functionally challenged brick

Crackling Doom, 31 Oct 2019Android customization. *mic drop*Lol... that stops mattering after 1 week of owning a new phone. Apple widgets are way better in every way possible. Sideloading apps are also a breeze in ios now thanks to panda helper. What are you? A 10 year old kid or what.. A phone is a tool, not an ornament

And you're supposed to change the battery if you're using your iPhone long enough for the throttling to take place.
