Google Pixel 4 XL Features & Specs

The Google Pixel 4 XL has brought many new features to the market, such as its 90Hz screen, a gesture system to control the mobile without having to touch it, among others. And you will know all of them by reading each of the following sections.

Design and construction

The first thing that stands out in the design of the Google Pixel 4 XL is that the notch is gone, and instead we have been given a fairly large upper frame. The bottom frame, in turn, has been slimmed down almost to the level of the sides.

The front of the Pixel 4 XL presents an improvement to that of its predecessor, but we’re not talking about the range to perfection either. Having such a wide frame at the top creates an imbalance in the design. It houses not only the front-facing camera, and the speaker, but also the radar sensor for Motion Sense.

The Google Pixel 4 XL is just a little taller than the previous model, it has also increased its weight, although the reason is that the battery has had an increase of 270mAh. Google bet for its materials by the well-known glass sandwich, with a metal frame in a matte finish.

We have then that the measures of this are 160.42 x 75.13 x 8.2 mm, while its weight is 193 g. Its front design is delicate, with a module that overhangs, but disappears with a lining, while on the back no element stands out.

Display

The Google Pixel 4 XL’s display is a 6.3-inch diagonal OLED display with QHD+ resolution, a configuration that suits the high-end. This panel is able to offer great sharpness, which is further enhanced by the high contrast of the OLED.

Another good aspect is the color reproduction, as it has vivid tones without being strident, and has a high level of brightness, although in full sun could have been better some point more. However, the overall experience is excellent.

The key point of this display is the refresh rate, which is 90Hz. It’s noticeable if you pay attention and compare, but in everyday use you might not even notice it. The downside of all this is that it causes high consumption of your battery.

However, the Google Pixel 4 XL helps you with a dynamic setting, where the screen will only go up to 90Hz when necessary, staying at 60Hz the rest of the time. Likewise, it has complementary options that will delight anyone.

Performance

The performance of the Google Pixel 4 XL is supported by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 855. In its RAM Google remains conservative, since, although they are not the 4 of previous models, it does give the feeling that its 6 GB are still somewhat short with the current.

This phone in the day to day has the ability to cope with total ease, and will not complain so easily when you decide to complicate everything with the use of games or apps that are more demanding.

You won’t see lags, and animations will move at a good speed.

However, if you’re a picky person you might need a bit more RAM to rest easy. The Google Pixel 4 XL comes in two presentations, one of 64 GB and one of 128 GB. What is our recommendation, that you always bet on the one with more storage if it is within your means.

Battery

3000
mAh

The battery of the Google Pixel 4 XL grew over the previous model. However, these milliamps are not noticed in the way that any user would expect in their day to day. In fact, even with all the options that should be a savings, the change is not that much.

A test was conducted at 90Hz, with dark mode and ambient display. That configuration achieved just over 5 hours of screen time, with about 16 hours of use in total. It should be noted that the camera was used for a long time, and the overall usage was heavy.

In the second test the configuration was changed to 60Hz, with the screen in ambient and keeping the dark mode. Total usage in this case was 22 hours, longer than the previous time, but screen time was 4.5 hours, much less.

For a third test with the Google Pixel 4 XL, the screen was left on 60Hz, with dark mode, and ambient mode turned off. This configuration allowed to reach 6 hours of screen, with a total use of 21 hours. So it is the most correct to stretch the time to the maximum.

Interface and functionalities

The interface of the Google Pixel 4 XL is based on the software “made by Google”, with a Pixel Launcher that has a fairly characteristic design whose icons are round, everything seems to be very clean, but with a great level of what is the customization of the same.

As a detail, in its Android 10 the Google search bar has been placed down, instead of above the icons. And in each style you can choose font, quick icon style, accent color, and also a shape for app icons.

Multimedia

The multimedia capabilities of the Google Pixel 4 XL we find it represented by two speakers with the intention of offering stereo sound, one at the bottom, just to the right of the USB-C, and the other in the upper frame, so it takes advantage of that extra space.

Unlike what has been seen in other mobiles that have a similar audio system, the volume of both speakers in this case remains quite similar. Of course, the lower speaker is noticeable with more forcefulness, but in itself there is not a big difference as usual.

Its sound is clear, and capable of reaching a high volume level without being annoying. But, if what you want is to take advantage of its greater clarity, it is advisable to keep it between 75 and 80% of its capacity.
Something that has been evidenced with the Google Pixel 4 XL is that it lacks a little more punch in the bass, but it is normal in such small speakers. As in its previous generation, there are no minijack connectors, so Bluetooth headphones are required.

Camera

The Google Pixel 4 XL’s photo camera is capable of dazzling in almost any condition, although its level of detail will certainly be more marked in those cases where the light accompanies us. And, if you want the best results, zoom should be avoided at all costs.

However, it is when there is more contrast that HDR+ will be able to shine exceptionally brightly. The dynamic range it is capable of achieving is astounding. So this is a good camera if you do not have to use it as a team to get professional work and in any condition.
And is that the Google Pixel 4 XL has been equipped with a 16+12.2 megapixel rear camera, x1.8 optical zoom, dual OIS and UltraDepth. While its front camera is 8 megapixels. But if you know how to perform, you can get the most out of each of these elements.

Video

The Google Pixel 4 XL video gives us the option to record in 4K resolution, but as long as we stay at 30 frames per second. In case you intend to go up to 60fps you will have to lower the resolution to FullHD.

If you keep a good light the result it gives is optimal, it is a camera that can adapt wonderfully to changes in lighting, and its stabilization option makes the common tremors by handling are minimized to a large extent, becoming imperceptible.
This camera also delivers on the audio side, as its sound is crisp and clear. In the case of the zoom, during recording an improvement is noticed, especially when you have gone from one lens to another. However, not everything is rosy for this device.

As we know you’re wondering, the Google Pixel 4 XL doesn’t really surprise with its front camera. The stabilization work is really good, however, the results are noticeably poorer than with the rear camera. Especially if it has been recorded at night.
