Another standout feature of the Google Pixel 4XL is the camera, featuring two separate cameras on the rear camera array to choose from: with wide and telephoto lenses. But the new display is superior to its predecessor in terms of refresh rate, which has been bumped up to 90Hz. The Pixel 4 does not have a headphone jack, of course, but it does at least have a USB-C port that doesn’t require headphone makers to pay a licensing fee to access. It’s radar on your phone, literally, and in theory it could enable incredibly interesting ways to interact with software.

I do think they’re a little too dim, especially in bright sunlight, but otherwise I don’t have any complaints. It’s notable that the Pixel 4 XL’s 1440 x 3040 resolution (537 pixels per inch) is greater and sharper than the standard Pixel 4’s 1080 x 2280 display (with 444 pixels per inch), but at these sizes you aren’t going to notice much of a difference, and Google isn’t pushing its VR platform anymore, so it’s not inches from your face. It’s much better than a gimmick in my experience, but it needs to work reliably for everyone before I give it the credit I think it’s due. Lining the side is a textured (not slick) aluminum frame that gives some grip, at least on two of the three available colors. The Pixel 4 doesn’t care if your eyes are open or closed, which means that somebody could unlock your phone by holding it up to your face as you slumber.

If you have an old cell phone you can repurpose it by modifying it, save it as an emergency phone or give it away to a friend. You’ll be able to capture cityscapes and the night sky in one image which - while not perfect - is the best nocturnal phone photography we’ve seen yet. Considering other manufacturers have 25W, 30W, 40W, 50W, and even 65W fast chargers, Google is once again lagging behind. With the new Dual Exposure mode just a screen tap away in the main camera modes (which lets you fiddle with brightness and shadow), we found it plenty easy to tweak your image before you take it. The other new feature made possible by Soli is Motion Sense, which enables you to control music and alarms by gesturing above the device.

In addition, the relatively important update of the face recognition system is still missing, where closed eyes don't lead to successful unlocking of the smartphone anymore. Switching to face unlock without also including a fingerprint sensor means you won’t be able to use your identity to unlock certain apps — at least until developers update them. Regardless of which color you get, there’s a matte black aluminum frame, which I can only assume is a response to the notoriously slippery edges of the Pixel 3.But the Google Pixel advantage has never been in lenses - it’s in the software, which has worked wonders with even a single lens. All together, the phone is more of a pragmatist’s flagship, eschewing the shimmering gradients and waterfall-edged displays of the Samsung Galaxy Note 10 or Huawei Mate 30 Pro in favor of bold-hued simplicity. This means developers should be able to update their apps fairly easily, but Google needs to be more assertive with making sure it gets done. It takes away lots of little points of friction through clever uses of its new sensors like face unlock and Motion Sense. The Pixel 4 camera is better than the Pixel 3 — and to my eyes, better than the iPhone 11 Pro too — but it’s not as significant a camera improvement as you might have been hoping for.

While Apple may have the pull to force app developers to support a new authentication method, Google doesn’t.One odd thing to address: David suffered from a weird launch delay when firing up the Settings menu on the XL. All three colors have Gorilla Glass 5 on the back, but the white and orange models have matte finishes, and I much prefer them to the glossy finish on the black model.
