Review about Google Pixel 4 XL: A brilliant phone in a strengthening field
Pixel 4 and the Pixel 4 XL are Google's flagships for 2019.The phones offer some tremendous features. Apart from a 6.3-inch screen and 3,700-mAh battery on the larger model, the two phones are the same. They have Snapdragon 855 and 6 GB of RAM fixed inside. The internal storage choices are 64 GB or 128 GB on both phones.
However, the design is not too impressive and it appears that Google's design team is in need of some innovation.
The Pixel 4 XL has uniform bezels around the side of the screen, and a fingerprint sensor .If we review its software side, then it offers a pure stock Android experience plus a few exclusive extras: those extras contain a truly neat Recorder app that can record spoken audio (memos, lectures, news reports).All this was made possible through Google’s Artificial Intelligence algorithm.
The Pixel 4 XL also facilitates the latest Google Assistant, which responds more quickly to requests, and better comprehends the follow-up commands.
The Pixel 4 XL offers new Face Unlock technology, driven by smart scanning. The technology appears like your phone isn't locked at all. The user can check Twitter, and then put his phone down, and then the next time he picks it up he just carries on where he left off, so no PIN code or fingerprint needed. The user doesn’t have to waste the time of getting past the lock screen.
Another feature empowered by tech built is Motion Sense. It allows the user to run phone without touching it, so the user can wave his hand to simply skip between songs in a playlist. In a couple of situations, this feature is really useful: It can lower the volume of alarm when the Pixel senses a hand is reaching close to it. It brings up the display and notifications only when the hand is close to it.
In a battery test, it drops from 100 percent to 93 percent against an hour use of Netflix. This year we got a second lens, a telephoto lens that helps Google's image processing software in getting zoomed in shots. Technically, it's a 12.2 MP f/1.7 + 16 MP f/2.4 rear cameras.
The camera is capable of taking top-quality shots in all circumstances at all angles. Color is well copied, white balance is logically handled, and that camera zoom (a mix of optical and digital) is able to getting some fanciful results.
The best feature in 2019 is a new Astrophotography Mode. Now the user can actually shoot the stars with the Pixel 4 XL. It is incredible that now phones have become able to perform such tasks.
If we talk of the cons, the design is a little dull and outdated, there's no wide-angle lens on the camera, and it's an expensive handset too. The Pixel 4 XL is available on sale now, US$899 cracked for the 64 GB edition and $999 cracked for the 128 GB model.
