Anonymous, 29 Nov 2019Battery fail 61 hrs s10e at 83hrs Looks like it throttled slot no sustained performance ... moreMy partner has the S10e. A beautiful phone, but be aware that her battery life is below what I thought it would be. Not bad but just ok. which tells me that the Pixel 4 will be a train wreck. Seriously lousy from the Pixel. I feel sorry for those that buy one, not being aware of this massive fail.
hahaha 62 hours? what a garbage.. and u pay samsung prices for this.. omg how can google fail so hard ????
Lammo0, 29 Nov 2019Have the pixel 4, battery life is fine, not great, but not bad either.Seriously? 62hrs is the worst I've seen for a long while.
Thank you for reviewing the small Pixel 4 since you didn't review the Pixel 3 last year. Very disappointing. I'm glad I got a Pixel 3a this black friday. No regrets.
Anonymous, 29 Nov 2019The Mi Note 10 has great hardware specs, but the software is terrible. Just average low light ... moreDynamic range is less in low light but color rendering is natural. Hdr mode fixes this issue.
Plus detail captured is unparalleled. You get Dslr likes natural bokeh to all photos something that other phones fail to do coz of smaller sensor. Suttle little things that make it the best camera. Ultrawide and zoom cameras need improvement.

Anonymous, 30 Nov 2019I completely agree. I owned every one starting with Nexus line. The issue on battery life isn'... moreI have also been using the Pixel line for awhile now and I gotta say while the refresh rate is a good upgrade it would have been much nicer if we had more storage and more memory. If with Google storage 64 gb is kinda 2016 standards. The baseline should be 128 - 500 gb storage and 8 - 12 gb memory. I really hope Google has these kinda specs next year, I'm kinda thinking about making the switch to the iPhone. Pixel should have had 6 gb of memory at the Pixel 2/ Pixel 2 XL.
I'mPhone, 30 Nov 2019Not true. The Xiaomis are still the top performers.with higher defective rate compared to other brands
Anonymous, 30 Nov 2019Dual exposure should get more credit than it is been given. For those who know about it (which... moreThe feature works quite badly because Google doesn't adjust the exposure time when you adjust the shadows. So the shadows can be very noisy in average light conditions. Otherwise this is a great feature indeed. You can underexpose for getting more highlights and then adjust the shadows. Some camera manufacturers already offer similar things like Sony's DRO or Fuji's shadows setting, but they don't give you a slider. Furthermore apparently Google makes sure that boosting the shadows doesn't make the image lack contrast or look artificial.
Battery life is a disaster. After 6 months of usage it will hold 2-3 hours screen time on one charge. Disaster!
Basically worst phone money could buy right now. Only after iPhones
I find this to be the most fair review on the Pixel 4. I own the pixel 4 and got it on the black Friday deal for $599. The reason I got it was because my wife's phone started acting up and I gave her my LG G8. I will say in my opinion the G8 is a much better value than the Pixel 4. I bought the G8 for $499, and that has a better display, better battery, better front look, more base storage, headphone jack and some other things the pixel lacks. I would have felt better if I paid $499 for the 4 rather than the 599. For the record though I don't think the pixel 4 is bad either, and I rather like it. Overall there is jut not much in the compact phone category and the pixel 4 is one of the better ones.
One criticism I have with this review and others like it is that they bring up the oneplus phones as competition but they are a different size. Reviewers need to stop doing this unless you are only saying just as a smartphone in general, which throws a whole bunch of phones into this category. The competition for the 4 is the s10e, G8, Nokia 9 pureview, and others in this size category I may have missed.
There is one neat trick the pixel line does for me that no other phone can do without me paying my carrier for it, and that is transcribe voicemail on the native voicemail in the phone. It cose extra with my carrirer but the pixel phones do it without the feature.
LOL, don't you just love the comments here. My phone is better because it has better specs... SMH. Pixel will always have the best, seamless user experience, battery on the small pixel after 2 weeks of running in/use, is not an issue, camera is unsurpassed as usual, software support is the best in Android.
Nice batterylife for a 2015 flagship
Nick Tagataka, 30 Nov 2019The battery life and display brightness are simply pathetic for 2019 flagship smartphone, and ... moreThose Chinese OEMs cost even less. Also have better kit and hardware (at the cost of software but who cares anyway)
Anonymous, 30 Nov 2019And s10e better Not true.
The Xiaomis are still the top performers.
Krish, 30 Nov 2019Correct, reviewers and people should realize that Google is a software giant and you cannot pu... moreCompletely false.
Pixel 4 does have those rubbish hardware and poor marketing strategy, the latter discounting it heavily as a marketing ploy. Not to mention the phone breaks easily (go see JerryRigEverything's durability test). Small battery too.
Who cares about Shamsung these days? You've got all the Chinese OEMs. They have much better performance, possibly better cameras, also better battery life, audio, kit, etc. Thanks, makes Realme X2 Pro, OnePlus 7T, etc. shines even more.
Anonymous, 30 Nov 2019I completely agree. I owned every one starting with Nexus line. The issue on battery life isn'... moreSmh not true. Don't listen. Those phones come with less RAM and storage. Chipset should have been Sd855+. Last year Pixel 3 was a downclocked Sd845. Anandtech has mentioned a flaw with the camera, go read the article. I have touched both the Pixel 3 and 3 XL in a phone store. Looks ugly. Not to mention the high price at launch and discounting it later as a marketing ploy. Loses out to most Chinese competitors. I like my new Realme X2 Pro by the way.
Oh don't tell me the Pixel 4 can bend easily. If you've seen the durability test, the Pixel 4 is an embarassment. The antenna bands are an issue.
Pixel 4 has no microphone or sound issues. The bottom of the phone is charging port to each side is a 2-1" holes where speaker and microphone uses.
I have pixel 4 XL and Google is getting slammed. I don't think it's apples to apples. The iPhone xr is what Google was trying to better. It's way better than the xr.
If Google issued another phone in January it would beat iPhone 11. iPhone also knew xr was going to be smashed so they quickly fixed issues. Every one says iPhone 11 has amazing camera but Google updates throughout the year. Pixel photos are going to get better as each pixel had best camera when it releases. The battery is much better than pixel 3 xl we had. It's not the best in big 4 with Galaxy OnePlus, apple and Google. It has much better screen resolution but they don't mention that. It also of big 4 best apple and Galaxy in amount of charge in an hour.
It's best phone on the market in my opinion and one plus, Apple and Samsung are all about the same. No phone has highest mark in all categories.
Colors from camera look great, noise is quite bad however. Could easily choose rog2 or xperia1 instead.
