  • Overall:

The google pixel 4 is fast and has a nice display. Lies easily in the hand. Nice features like Face ID, which works perfectly in the dark. The camera is almost as good as iphone X or 11. I would like to emphasize the possibility for astrophotography. Of course, for this you need a tripod and a mount. The other day I photographed Venus passing by the Pleiades with 3 minutes exposure time. Now I want to take a picture of the milky way – but that doesn’t make much sense in the city with a lot of background light. When I am in the south of France (after Corona) in a small village I will try it. I am looking forward to that. And: especially at pixel: 3 years of big system updates secure and super fast security patches. Today (8.4.) I already have the April security update. Where else can you get it in the android area? Good: my iphones get at least 5 years of system updates. Google could be a bit more than that. Maybe it will. But already these times do not reach other manufacturers in the android area. And security is one of my top priorities besides good technology and performance. A really all around good smartphone.

  • Overall:

Abstract: don’t buy the device, it is way too expensive !

Unless you are like me found the old nexus series and could wait until now, April 2020.

Many, even die-hard fans, claim the pixel series has nothing to do with the old nexus devices. In my opinion this is simply not true, because and this is the main problem of pixel 1-4: they are still Nexus devices, but they cost 2-3 times as much.

Googles Pixel 4 is like all previous pixels not designed to bring good hardware. If you are looking for good hardware I recommend without thinking about it the iphone 11, galaxy s20, huawei p40 or xiaomi mi10. The pixel 4 will never make you happy. Sure it comes with a Snapdragon 855, but even in 2019 it was no longer up to date, but was replaced by the 855+. The RAM, ridiculously small with 6GB. State of the art are 8-12GB RAM. The device has hardly any memory either. Even mid-range smartphones no longer have 64GB (see Xiaomi mi note 10). Battery? With 2800mAh really a tragedy, other devices have 5000mAh and more. The display has 90hz, which is nothing compared to a 120hz or 144hz display from other manufacturers. The camera, worth an own review, is according to many tests far superior to the camera of the iPhone 11, but only comes with me 2 lenses, 2x zoom, only 12.2 or 16mp and no wide angle or macro. Almost pathetic compared to the p40 and s20 series.

All the hardware deficiencies listed above are made up for by Google with software. At least Google tries.

Google doesn’t care about benchmarks. A small processor with small RAM works just perfectly on a tuned system (software from google, hardware from google). Everything runs smoothly and without dropouts.
The memory doesn’t matter to Google either, because they want to sell you an abo for your own software, where you can use 100GB in the cloud.
The battery life is kept artificially high by software, rarely used apps are closed more often than others. The mini radar and the 90hz display are throttled down in unnecessary situations to save battery power.
The 90hz use much less power than 130/144hz, and make a big difference optically, so why compete?
The camera will still be taking pictures like yours in 2020. After all, Google’s software manages to produce extremely good images from the small 12.2 and 16 mp cameras. The main cameras of some of the competitors do not achieve this, despite the 48mp camera. Note: 48mp are still reduced to 12mp! The pentacam from Samsung has 108mp and is reduced to about 21mp! br>The competition offers similar results to Google with almost all hardware, only that Google uses software to achieve this. br>br>br>Design
Not Google’s strength. The pixel4 in white strongly reminds of the nexus 5 in white and offers the same pandalook. You may like it or not. I like that it looks different but familiar. Highlight is as always the highlighted sleep/wake button.

Mini Radar
It has to be mentioned that the pixel 4 has a huge forehead, because it has a mini radar. This makes face unlocking work great, but the gesture control provided is superfluous. It will never be further developed 100% and will never be used in pixel 5 (my guess).

The main problem of pixel 4. it costs more than all the competition. And unfortunately it does not offer the same experience as the competition. Google gets its software development and its Mini Radar paid. It is not worth it! The Pixel 4 is worth a maximum of 500€ and is therefore 300€ too expensive to go to market. br>>br>Bottom line >br> As much as Google tries hard to optimize its own software, they will never get to a s20 or iphone 11 that has the same software and instead set ostentatious numerical values. Whoever takes main photos will quickly and easily create very good pictures, for videos pixel 4 is not made! If you play PUBG or Fortnite you will be happy about the 90hz display, but the battery will quickly ruin your gaming session. The stereo speakers are missing on many more expensive devices, they are good but not outstanding.

Can I recommend the Pixel4? NO! At least not for a price over 500€. At the moment it is available for less than 500€, now you should, if at all, take it. This money is worth it, even if the device looks more like a Google experiment, it is still THE DEVICE for Android. If you like Android you will not be able to get past pixel4. It is Android as the manufacturer imagines it and on which he can test technology.
