"Pixels have never exactly been good-looking phones."
This summs it all up!

How can anyone throw $1k on this garbage is beyond me.
For the record, anyone who throws $1000 or more on a smartphone and is not working on reviews or making videos on YouTube about it is brain-dead!
There are plenty cheaper ways to check your FB and Instagram, just saying.
Geric.770, 30 Nov 2019Well, if the price is right like this year that is. Pixel 3a did its job impressing people on... moreNah, too low end and it wouldn't be a good experience. As for software experience, I don't see any reason why they can't do both that and make a good mid-range phone
Popped into some stores yesterday to take a look. I gotta admit. It has to be the most beautiful looking phone I have ever seen. Specially the smaller model. I'm glad google ere not go with cheap looking all shiny mirror backs, same same out their.

Been using R4X for pretty while, and i also have plenty feedback from my friend's Prime.
It's a pain in the #ss, especially, like any Chinese phone, notifications.
Not to mention 0 resell value after.
P4 is a great lineup again, especially if you get it discounted

Both OnePlus and Xiaomi offer better software than Samsung. I own an S10 as well. Although the new One UI is better than any software experience on Samsung, OnePlus and Xiaomi are slightly better than One UI.
All three manufacturers make great quality phones. Stop that propaganda of yours against Xiaomi and Samsung.
Anonymous, 10 Dec 2019One plus, Samsung and xiaomi would like to disagree with you...Don't talk about Xiaomi and OnePlus... only bad experience with them...
I had a very bad experience (software experience) with Xiaomi... after a year I was unable to cast anything on any TV... lots of bugs... I switched to OnePlus (because on paper it looks great also)... OnePlus is 10 steps over Xiaomi... but can't be compared with a pixel...
About Samsung... what can I say... great quality... great specs... and that's all...
I use the assistant for almost all tasks... initiate calls/send messages/reminders/notes/cast youtube videos on my tv... house temperature... without touching the display...
So... my opinion is that the result is what really matters... not the specs...
I have ordered Pixel 4 XL thru Fi, they claimed they have delivered my phone and signed by "reception a"! well my name is not "reception a" and I have not received my phone which I paid $1,100 (including taxes). that can happen for any shipment, worst part is how Fi reacted when I reached to their support. The only information they provide is "we have escalated this case to shipment department and they will contact you via email"!!! that's it. no explanation on how long it will take or what they have found so far and they havent send a replacement yet! They have the worst customer support I have seen. I am already regretting buying from Fi and suggest never buy anything from Fi if you care about customer support.
This has to be the worst phone to preorder. The price literally drops 20% or more two weeks after release. Why does Google let this happen to it's flagship product?
Is an overpriced cheap phone. Old sensors, low RAM, cheap chassis and construction, small battery... even a cheated 90Hz display.
Nick Tagataka, 06 Dec 2019If people around me were looking to buy this phone, I would recommend them to buy an iPhone 11... moreiPhone 11 Pro is over Pixel 4... But if you like android/don't like iOS... a pixel is the best option(android market) from my pov...
Very crappy phone for $700. Small 2800mAh battery (which is the least of the problem), Low amount of RAM, ugly camera hump, plastic-covered weak frame, Google's spying on you and tracking you more than ever now, and awful software. Will never, ever buy any choogle phone ever.
One of the worst things about the Pixel 4's camera is its white balance. Google needs to give us the option to turn machine learning white balance off and bring back the white balance presets.
I am using a lot of phones in the moment huawei pixel samsung and testing them everyday, only can say nothing come close to iphone 11 pro max, the best phone ever made, smooth performance with anything you can imagine even the most intensive apps that lags sometimes on other phones, 11 pro max can handle everything. A13 is beast and the others need a few years to catch up, the camera is really good and video quality is the best on the market, and the battery is amazing love this phone, i am not fan boy love ios and android both.
AlexG, 06 Dec 2019iPhone 11 doesn't even come close to Pixel 4... Pixel 4 is a direct competitor to iPhone 11 pr... moreBuild quality: iPhone's side frame is made out of stainless steel, whereas Pixel uses soft aluminium frame that bends and snaps thanks to horrible antenna band placements. iPhone 11 Pro wins the first round.
Display: Pixel 4's panel has a higher refresh rate, which is nice, but iPhone 11 Pro has a higher resolution and can get twice as bright, while also being more colour accurate with no calibration issue whatsoever. iPhone also wins here.
Camera: They are equally good in daylight and nighttime photos, in some scenes Pixel performs better, in others iPhone does. However, iPhone 11 Pro has a third UWA lens and massively superiour video recording capability. iPhone wins easily.
Battery: According to GSMArena's battery test, iPhone 11 Pro lasts 38% longer in browsing and 35% longer in video playback. And in standby iOS drains less juice compared to Android, which is especially the case when you have opened a lot of apps in the background. iPhone wins, again.
Biometrics: Although Pixel 4 is on an equal ground to iPhone 11 Pro when it comes to face unlock speed, the former is still waiting for an update that prevents a random stranger from picking up and unlock your phone even when you're sleeping. For now iPhone wins.
Performance: SD855 vs A13, enough said. iPhone wins.
Software: Each of Android and iOS has their own pros and cons. It's up to a personal preference, so it's a tie. As for the file management system, iOS has a pretty decent file system now and I don't think it'll cause an issue for most users.
Ecosystem: No other companies beat Apple in this category. iPhone wins.
Pixel 4 can't compete with or even remotely get close to iPhone 11 Pro, sorry. You see a huge difference in price between those two because in this case the more expensive one is an overall better phone. At best Pixel 4 is a close enough rival to the regular iPhone 11, but still not exactly on the same level.
