GOOGLE Pixel  4.

Google Pixel 4

The Pixel 4 and Pixel 4 XL are the best arguments that specs don’t tell you everything you need to know about a phone — because the experience of using a Pixel 4 is better than any other Android phone.

There is a nuanced difference between saying “specs don’t tell you the whole story” and “specs don’t matter,” because they absolutely do — if only because the wrong ones can ruin the whole thing. There are a few places where Google could have done better, especially with battery life. But overall, the Pixel 4 hits enough of the marks to pass, and it’s a few new features from Google that push the experience ahead of the pack.

The Pixel 4 starts at $799 for the smaller 5.7-inch screen version with 64GB of storage. I suspect many users will pay the $100 for the XL version with the bigger screen, the $100 more for 128GB of storage, or both. I am sympathetic to arguments that the specs don’t quite justify those prices, but only to a point. With Pixel 4, the cost isn’t about the hardware — it’s about Google’s software, camera, and those new features.

: Design :
Even though the Pixel 4 shares the iPhone 11’s square camera bump, the overall design and aesthetic is unique and feels of a piece with the Pixel’s lineage. Google is leaning into the contrasts of its material and colours instead of trying to meld them into something that feels like a single whole.

All three colours have Gorilla Glass 5 on the back, but the white and orange models have matte finishes, and I much prefer them to the glossy finish on the black model. The orange has coral tones to it, depending on the light, and it’s also limited-edition for some reason.

Google Pixel 4 Design

After releasing a phone with a hilariously huge notch last year, Google is going back to a notchless, big top bezel design. That’s ostensibly so it can fit both its face unlock and radar sensors up top, but I do wonder if Google just wanted to make life easier on itself this time around. I don’t mind the look, but it does mean the front of the phone is asymmetrical: the top, bottom, and sides all have different bezel widths. You’ll notice it, and then you will stop seeing it, and then it will be fine.

The Pixel 4 does not have a headphone jack, of course, but it does at least have a USB-C port that doesn’t require headphone makers to pay a licensing fee to access. Weirdly and annoyingly, Google doesn’t include either headphones or an adapter in the box anywhere except France and Australia.

: Camera :
Pixel 4 implements both standard-wide and telelens cameras (but no ultra-wide) on the rear, with a single-lens camera on the front, permanently switching around the camera configuration from the Pixel 3.

The primary camera is built around a 1/2.55-inch sensor with 12.2Mp resolution and 1.4µm pixels, coupled to a 27mm-equivalent f/1.7 lens with optical image stabilisation. Its second shooter features a 50mm-equivalent telelens, providing around an x2 optical magnification for zoom shots, with a 16Mp 1/3.6-inch sensor capturing the images.

For video, Google’s latest flagship can shoot 4K (2160/30fps), but not in the default mode we use for testing, where it records footage at 1080p. Like its predecessor, the Pixel 4 continues to offer automatic frame-rate switching between 30 and 60fps in videos shots at 1080p, and there’s a gyro-based stabilisation system for smoother capture.

Sophisticated software processing and computational photography in previous Pixel cameras have helped Google smartphones rank well in our tests. Combining this advanced processing with a dual-lens camera on the Pixel 4 could be really interesting. Read on to find out how the Pixel 4 performed in our DXOMARK Camera tests.

The Pixel 4’s bokeh simulation is pretty lovely, too, thanks to pleasant exposure, colour, and good overall image quality. It’s slightly let down by weaker depth estimation, however, with failures often visible at close inspection compared to top performers with a dedicated depth-sensing camera.

Google’s Night Sight mode is welcome for low-light photography, as it generally captures pleasant exposures with beautiful colour and excellent detail. In our new series of night photography tests, auto-flash also triggers accurately based on the scene, and the flash automatically deactivates for low-light cityscapes, which show good exposure and intense colour saturation. White balance tends to turn slightly pink, and details are low and have more noise than we’ve observed from the best devices in these shots, but the results are reliable overall.

The Pixel 4 is also a top performer for video, ranking at the top of our database alongside the Samsung Galaxy Note 10+ 5G with a Video score of 101 points. All other recent top-ranked video devices have captured 4K (2160p) footage by default, however, making the Pixel 4 the first 1080p HD device to hit the top of our video rankings since the introduction of 4K recording at default settings. Excellent results for video noise, well-managed in all conditions, as well as video colour with pleasant white balance and vivid rendering, are its key strengths. Video autofocus is also fast and accurate, and its gyro-EIS stabilisation system is reasonably sufficient, aside from some residual motion in walking videos. Automatic frame switching between 30/60fps in 1080p mode is also pretty handy for smoother video capture to keep pace with lighting or movement changes within a scene without having to manually adjust settings.

: Performance :

The Google Pixel 4 packs Qualcomm's flagship Snapdragon 855 chipset, giving it plenty of grunts, and that's complemented by Google's first-ever bump in RAM for a Pixel phone. 

The first, second and third generations of the Pixel range have all come with 4GB of RAM, but the Pixel 4 sees that increased to 6GB, bringing the phone more in line with the Android competition (although there are still plenty of rivals packing 8GB, and even, in some cases, 12GB of RAM).

We found in our time using the phone that it was speedy, able to load apps and games with ease as well as offering everything we need from a modern smartphone.

Google Pixel 4 Performance

We ran benchmarking stats with Geekbench 5 on the device and found it scored on average  2,183. Compared to other top-end phones at the moment that’s good but not great, with the Samsung Galaxy S10 Plus 5G scoring a similar 2,197 but both of these devices being beaten by the OnePlus 7T Pro at 2,584.

This isn’t the best chipset available on the market at the time of writing – that honour goes the Snapdragon 855 Plus chipset that’s designed to be slightly better for gaming – but we found that the Pixel 4 loaded demanding apps and games without any issues.

: Our Verdicts :
If you’re in the market for one of the very best camera phones out there, the Pixel 4 should be at or close to the top of your list. If you’re looking for an all-round feature-packed phone, you may be a bit disappointed, and the battery life is mediocre at best. Still, it’s a solidly built device with an exciting design and powerful internals.
