Our Google Pixel 4 XL video review is up

Michail, 09 November 2019

Great cameras, lackluster battery endurance and Android as envisioned by Google - thatís the brief consensus on the Pixel 4 XL. Weíve already posted our full written review a while back and now we have the video rundown which recaps the main findings and shares some new perspectives on what it's like to actually use the Pixel 4 XL.

Starting with the design Googleís latest flagship has a refreshed front with a tall forehead and is also different around the back with its square camera cutout. Itís nice to see some change after two years of relatively similar Pixel designs. Another welcome addition is the 90Hz refresh rate even though Googleís implementation didnít come without its issues.

Perhaps one of the most interesting features on the new Pixel line comes under its tall forehead with the Motion Sense radar chip. It's quite impressive on paper but feels more like a gimmick in real life. Moving on to the performance aspect, both new Pixels come with the Snapdragon 855 and 6GB RAM which handle every task with ease.

Battery life on the other hand, is not that impressive but thatís never been a Pixel strong point. Camera-wise, the Pixel 4 XL delivers arguably the most consistent and accurate shots but the competition isnít too far off. As an overall package, the Pixel 4 XL is a solid Android flagship even though it feels a bit less polished than some of its adversaries.
