The awaited Google Pixel 4 and Pixel 4 XL are here, and many have been buzzing about the “complete” experience that Google has promised to provide. Built with Android 10 operating system, you’ll enjoy faster performance, faster applications, and smoother multi-tasking.
First and foremost, the design.
Google Pixel 4 has¬ paved the way to a cleaner and sharper look in its white, black, and new limited-edition orange colors. For the first time, the new phones come with metal railings along the side with a matte finish. This is better than metal as it grips better when you’re holding the phone and isn’t as sensitive to scratches and accidental falls.
Pixel 4 and Pixel 4 XL Sizes
Designed to fit perfectly in the back pocket of your jeans, the Google Pixel 4 comes in 5.7-inches. And if you’re in favor of a larger screen, the Pixel 4 XL comes in 6.3-inches.
The Face ID Unlock feature
These are Google’s first phones that have replaced the fingerprint sensor with facial recognition. And it works within a decent range to scan your face and unlock your phone pretty fast. It also includes infrared projectors, that allows the face ID to work in the dark. And no, you can’t trick it with a picture!
The Pixel 4 is built in with Google’s Project Soli, the tiny motion sense radar chip that works by detecting your movement. This means that you can silence your alarm and skip through your music, simply by swiping or waving your hand over your phone.
The Soli chip also detects your presence, meaning if you walk away from your phone, your screen turns off. It also knows when you’re reaching to pick up your phone while its ringing. So, as it senses your hands coming closer, the volume automatically turns down a bit.
The Google Pixel 4 camera is boasted to be the best on the market right now. Also, it is Google’s first phone to come imbedded with two cameras: the standard-wide and telephoto lens cameras. Also, let’s not forget the single-lens camera on the front.
The selfie camera is now a bit wider than the previous versions of Pixel with a 90 degrees’ field of view, which makes selfies a bit better than previous versions with a very consistent pixel look!
One of the camera’s main themes here is machine learning, all so you can take powerful, crisp, clear, and clean looking images. The Google Pixel 4 has the power to give you just as it identifies the objects in the frame, you’re shooting in daylight or nighttime. If you’re shooting at night, simply select the night mode camera. If you forget to, don’t worry as you’ll still end up with a clear image.
As for shooting videos, Pixel 4 continues to offer automatic framerate switching between 30 and 60 frames per seconds (fps), and there’s a gyro-based stabilization system which captures smoother vides as you’re in motion.

The Google Pixel 4 with 64GB of storage starts at $799, while 128GB of internal storage starts at $899. The Google Pixel 4 XL with 64GB of internal costs around $899, while 128GB of internal storage starts at $999.
