Were the battery life numbers provided by you done after giving the phone's adaptive battery time to adjust to your usage or was this done right out of the box? Even the XL got horrid numbers out of the box and some reviewers are giving the XL 6-7 hours of screen on time after a week of letting the adaptive battery do what it's supposed to do.
I have the pixel 4 and was dubious about getting it due to the reviews but I really like it. What people are forgetting is that for a smaller phone the battery isn't that much smaller and hasn't been a problem for me. It gets me through a day but I do have access to a charger most of the time or I always got in a habit of taking a battery pack with me when spending all day at beach or camping. What really excels for me is the fluidiness and software speaking support like Google assistant. Admittedly I came from an s7 but I find myself just shouting at phone to beam a program to my chrome cast or asking random questions. Hey Google is always on. The storage is less than I would have liked but won't be a problem for me. Admittedly I pay a pound a month now for increased Google storage. I feel this is the best android experience that's comapdrable to my ipad and works iPhone. The camera is actually stunning and I have never used so thus don't miss an ultra wide. I barely use the zoom. The soli radar is bit of a gimick at the moment and only use I use is changing songs whilst in a car. I'm sure it will get more use in the future. The face unlock i find very useful. I just pick the phone up and it unlocks. I love the size and I'm perfectly happy with the phone. I'm sure it's not the best value for money but then it's not meant to be. It just works and most of these reviews are from people who haven't used the phone. Get one try it out for a couple of weeks and you might be surprised you like it. I hate Big phones and for me this is still quite compact and huge upgrade over my s7 at the same size.
It’s truly astonishing to see that with all the resources an talent, the Pixel team can’t get the simple basics right...truly truly bewildering....

Looks like it throttled slot no sustained performance
... moreI wonder why people think brighter oled is better.
Higher brightness will just bring burn-in sooner.
I am so happy I can use my LCD screen at 770 nits all the time without any issue.
This is the best site in the world! Thank you guys for adding to the tools!
Anything can look like crap on paper. IE iPhone displays. But look how they is. Maybe share a user experience instead.
It's a 4 out of 5 I highly doubt the counts as a "failure" maybe a misstep
I think that the lack of a fingerprint reader and headphone jack is just as bad as the lack of a good battery.
Anonymous, 29 Nov 2019After reading the camera review, we can safely say Mi Note 10 blows pixel 4, iPhone 11, note 1... moreThe Mi Note 10 has great hardware specs, but the software is terrible. Just average low light performance despite the best low light hardware and I just read a review that Xiaomi's image processing causes a lot of stitching artifacts, which can make an image unusable occasionally.
Xperia 5 - 6,1"
Pixel 4 - 5,7"
I think all of us can unanimously agree that Pixel 4 series has to be the worst flagship of the year.
After reading the camera review, we can safely say Mi Note 10 blows pixel 4, iPhone 11, note 10+ out of the water.
what's the problem of Motion Sense radar ? why not available in some countries ?
Love my 4 XL!
As a pixel 4 owner, this review is just useless, like 99% of the reviews out there.
These crap reviews forget about 1 thing, the user experience.
This pixel 4 is amazing in everything. If you are a guy looking for sheet specs and nothing more, go Xiaomi or one plus. If you want the best android device there is, pixel 4 is the easy and only choice.
Battery problems? not true. SD855 is pretty much an efficient processor, better than SD845 and much better than SD835, so 2800 size is not bad. I can have 1day and 6hours with a single charge. 99% of people will not need more. The +300millioes iPhone users before iPhone 11 know that. Guess android users needs to get better specs to "win" the iPhone..more ram, more storage, more battery, more cameras....people forget 1 thing. 99% don't need those extra things and is a bad thing for the planet wasting resources in things we don't need just to tell your friend you have more ram than him.
Google made it clear that is concern about doing the environment and doing something about it. It was the only company doing that, now it's bashed for that..is sad.
The only problem that I had with the device was the first week, the battery sucked, now with the AI kicking, I leave the house with 70%, get home with 26% that's good enough for me and the rest 99% of the people. Google have statistics of all people, do you think they don't know how much time everyone spends on a device? do you think that battery is not thought to be able to satisfy 99% of all people?
I'm a programmer and I build apps for a living, I need the phone more than most people for work, not for facebook, or social media, for that a 200 euros phone will do. They have 5000mAh 128Gb and 8Gb of ram so you can speak to 1000 people at the same time.
If you're into 90hz OLED display, then Realme X2 Pro & OP7T kill this thing in practically every way (except camera performance).
If you don't care about 90hz, then it's primary competitors kill it in every way (including overall camera performance).
Battery fail 61 hrs s10e at 83hrs
Looks like it throttled slot no sustained performance
Bad cooling design
Storage 64gb to low base
Screen 90hz at 400 nits not as bright as Samsung what can reach 800s
Just beaten by the s10e in every way except for 90hz but that is pretty useless of it's a bad phone
Judging by the specs and this review there's nothing to justify it's price.Good camera and that's it.Battery life is a joke,you can get clean Android for $200,sub-par audio output,no earbuds for the price,no 3.5mm adapter,solid display like phones that cost half of it's price...nice $375 phone,at best..
"google has somehow managed to mess up the processing/depth mapping and we often got imperfections along the border between subject and background."
That's not the only thing they messed up. They also removed the white balance presets. I was 95% sure that I would buy the Pixel 4, I really wanted a 50mm camera, but the removal of the white balance presets, the inconsistent machine learning white balance, the bad video zoom, the small battery, the lack of a fingerprint reader, a portrait mode that doesn't let you use the 50mm camera and also doesn't let you use the 27mm camera without a crop, and the bad selfie depth map were reasons why I just bought a different phone.
