Our Google Pixel 4 XL Review

Google Pixel 4 XL: Display

The 4 XL features a 6.3” OLED display, while the 4 features a slightly smaller screen at 5.7”. The new display on the 4XL is superior to its predecessors, having been upgraded to an impressive refresh rate of 90hz. This makes it noticeably cleaner when swapping between phone apps, although, if you are coming from a 60hz smartphone then you might not see much of a difference. 

With the OLED display supported by HDR, streaming movies and television series on the 4 XL was an extremely pleasant experience. Featuring the all-new Ambient EQ, the phone will adjust the display’s colour temperature according to the user’s environment. 

Compared to the Pixel 4, the 4 XL has a 1440x3040 resolution (537 ppi) and is noticeably sharper than the 4’s 1080x2280 (444ppi) display. Ultimately, however, you aren’t going to notice much of a difference between the two. 

Google Pixel 4 XL: Camera

The camera on the Pixel 4 XL is the best Android camera available, and it could very well stay that way until next year. 

Featuring a 12.2 megapixel lens backed up by a 16 megapixel telephoto lens, the Pixel 4 camera is one of the best on the smartphone market. The Pixel 4 and 4 XL both feature the same camera specifications, including an 8 megapixel front camera, so you’ll see no difference if you choose to upgrade to the 4 XL. 

Adding the 16 megapixel telephoto lens allows users to capture clean, crisp shots, and when coupled with Google’s Super Res Zoom technology, the Pixel 4 can take 4-5x zoomed shots that still look impressive. If you’re into zooming in to capture your photos, then this is a huge positive for you, while the telephoto lens provides a good-quality portrait mode. 

Google Pixel 4 XL: Design

As expected with Google’s range of smartphones, the design on the Pixel 4 XL is simple but extremely well executed. 

It’s certainly minimalistic and isn’t going to set the world alight, but its matte finish (in white and orange) and metal frame makes it look particularly futuristic in a non-flashy sense. The camera cut out is something we particularly found attractive, with its corners curved in the exact same way as the corners of the phone, it fits perfectly in the top left-hand corner of the phone. 

The Pixel 4 XL comes in a choice of three colours, and unlike other smartphones we’re used to, whichever colour you choose will affect the feel of the phone. For example, the black finish on the 4 XL features a glossy finish and, surprisingly, more grip than the white and orange matte finishes. Over time the white and orange versions kept a cleaner appearance, whereas the fingerprint smudges on the glossy back were significantly more visible as I’m sure you can imagine. 

In terms of weight and size, it is no thicker than the Pixel 4 at 8.2mm. The 4 XL is 75.1mm wide and weighs 193 grams, compared to the 4 which is 68.8mm and 162 grams respectively. The 4 XL is water resistant (IP68), dust proof and has a height of 160.4 mm. 

Google Pixel 4 XL: Performance & battery

Built on Android’s 10 operating system, the Google Pixel 4 XL is home to the latest technology (at the time this review was written).  It packs the Snapdragon 885, making it fast enough to manage any task you’ll throw at it, and when combined with the Adreno 640 graphics chip, the 4 XL is great for gaming, if that’s your thing. 

The Pixel 4 XL features 6GB of RAM, which isn’t as much as we see in other Android flagships, but when you hear the iPhone 11 series gets away with just 4GB of RAM, you’ll realise the 4 XL is lightning quick.

The storage options start at 64GB and climb to 128GB, with the latter being the minimum for most flagship smartphones on the market right now. Users will be unable to expand storage, as the 4 XL does not feature a microSD card slot to do so manually. However, there is always Google One cloud storage which can be accessed with a monthly subscription, much like Apple’s iCloud. 

The 4 XL’s might be its biggest flaw. At just 3,700mAh, it pales in comparison to the giants on the smartphone market in 2020, and that’s without mentioning the 4’s measly 2,800mAh battery capacity. In fact, the battery difference might be the main reason customers might choose the 4 XL over Google’s standard 4 model. However, the Pixel 4 XL does come with an 18W fast charger in the box. 

Google Pixel 4 XL: Price

With the Google Pixel 4 XL having been released on October 24th 2019, the price has dropped somewhat to £659 - a modest amount to pay for what is still considered Google’s flagship model. You could pick the Google Pixel 4 up for £499 straight from the Google Store, too, but it all comes down to whether you think the difference in display, performance and battery life is worth the £159 upgrade. 

It’s also worth mentioning that the £659 price tag is only for the 64GB model. If you opt for the 128GB model, you’re looking at another £100.
