The Pixel 4 is pretty new. It was released at the end of 2019.
It is big – its screen stretches 5.7 inches across. You’re looking at a unit with a bit of weight. It comes in at 162 grams, which makes it feel more expensive.
It feels especially luxurious as it was made from Gorilla Glass 5 and aluminum which does not scratch easily.
It’s pretty thin. Its dimensions are 147.1 x 68.8 x 8.2 mm.
Looking across its sides, you won’t find a microSD slot. There isn’t a 3.5 mm headphone jack either. But the storage options it comes with are good. More on them below.
There isn’t a fingerprint sensor on its rear. You’re getting one underneath its display. The Pixel unlocks in the blink of an eye. We’re happy to say that you get face-unlock as well.
It comes in interesting shades. In our opinion, the orange is the best. How often do you see tangerine-coloured mobiles?
Its screen is P-OLED. The colours produced would be very vibrant. There’s some superb sharpness too – you’re getting a 1080 x 2280 pixel resolution.
It doesn’t come with much bezel action. There’s a 79.8% screen-to-body.
Just like its back, Gorilla Glass 5 is on its front. You’ll have a hard time scratching it.
Let’s talk about its insides. It runs Android 10 out of the box. You can upgrade it to the newest Android 11. What’s more, its systems run Stock Android. The UI means that there’ll be no bloatware and thick skins. The Stock Android means that it receive updates faster than counterparts.
The chipset housed is a beast. The mobile has the Snapdragon 855 inside. The fact that you can purchase it with 6 GB of RAM means that its systems are extremely smooth to move through. It’s already buttery as it rocks a 90 Hz display.
What about storage? You’ll be buying it with either 64 or 128 GB of ROM. They’re more than enough for you to download whatever you want. If you remember, it doesn’t come with expandable storage, however.
Unfortunately, its battery is small and there’s a 2800 mAh unit inside. As you can imagine, it’s non removable. The device lasts around a day. With its power saving modes, this can be extended.
To charge it, you’ll have to place an 18 W fast charger into a USB-C port. The Pixel 4 can fully charge in a little over an hour and a half. The cherry on top is the fact that you’re getting wireless charging. We would’ve loved reverse charging but we can overlook this.
It comes with a good camera. There is a dual set-up on its rear, which consists of a 12.2 MP wide lens, along with a 16 MP secondary telephoto lens. The photographs that it takes are super vibrant. You can expect the mobile to perform well in low-light.
It does well in dark settings thanks to its powerful dual-LED flash. You’re unfortunately not getting flash on its front camera. It takes shots that would leave you Instagram ready, though. On its front, an 8 MP wide lens is present.
Here’s what you came for:
The Pixel 4 is a former flagship. This explains why it’s on the higher end of the price spectrum. You can pick it up for around Rs.180,000 islandwide.
