Despite all the Android devices available, it makes sense that Google would release its own smartphone given the nature of the operating system. However, rather than copy what the competition is up to, Google has worked hard to ensure that it can offer a device that provides a seamless Android experience. Google has realized that there is a need for more than one version of a handset, made evident with the release of the first google pixel series. Hence the much anticipated 2020 iteration of the pixel lineup came up with the XL version just like its predecessor.
There are many similarities between the two handsets, such as both containing Android 10, the support of fast-charging and Face ID, there are some subtle differences that can help ensure you’re paying the right price for a smartphone. Given how new Google is to the smartphone industry, the devices released to date have always impressed and stood firm against the competition, and this can be attributed to it being the Android operating system.
Released in 2019, The Google Pixel 4 offers some impressive specs for the price paid. Those searching for a bright and vibrant display can enjoy a 5.7-inch screen that can provide a resolution of 1080 x 2280.
There is a dual primary camera that is made up of a 12.2 MP wide lens and 16MP telephoto lens. Selfies are also effortless thanks to an 8MP selfie camera which is partnered with TOF 3D, a sensor that measures depth and biometrics.
The 2800 mAh battery is smaller than the battery seen on other smartphones, but it is also worth remembering that both the hardware and software are created to work more productively. However, there will be those that just need that additional charge during busy periods, which is where the Google Pixel 4 XL may be the more viable option
Google Pixel 4 XL is the larger counterpart of Pixel 4 series. The screen of the 4 XL now measures 6.3-inches and can deliver a resolution of 1440 x 3040.
The Google Pixel 4 XL comes in two different memory variants, 64GB and 128GB. Both versions are powered by 6GB RAM which is joined by a Qualcomm SM8150 Snapdragon 855. Another noticeable improvement seen with the Google Pixel 4 XL is the size of the battery, which is now 3700 mAh, offering enough charge for the busiest of schedules.
Many people pay a premium price on the assumption that they need access to all the features, but this isn’t always the case. Although those unable to charge their handset throughout the day would benefit from a bigger battery, those that have ready access to the charging socket will find that Google Pixel 4 is more than capable of meeting their performance requirements on a daily basis. Apart from the battery, you might want to consider the lack of fingerprint scanner in both the standard and XL versions. Finally, the biggest factor is obviously the price and the opportunity cost of your purchase. When you get close to spending a $1000 AUD on a smartphone, an entire world of Android-based options opens up from fancy Samsung devices to the latest Huawei & Oppo Phones. Google's phone manufacturing competitors from South Korea & China have become increasingly innovative and offer amazing value for money in their smartphone lineup. Its safe to say that their phones are equally as good if not better and warrant a second thought when you're in the market with a grand to splurge on the latest technology.
