A Closer Look at the Pixel 4 and Pixel 4 XL

Tech fans are excited about the Pixel 4 and Pixel 4 XL. People want to know what cool innovations they can expect from Google this time around. The great news is that these phones definitely live up to expectations. Let’s dive into a few of the highlights.

Stunning photography capabilities

If you’re anything like me, the first thing you want to know before you buy a new phone is what camera capabilities it has. Here’s what you need to know about the cameras on the Pixel 4.

  • Point and click simplicity: With the Pixel 4 and Pixel 4 XL, taking studio-quality photos is as simple as point and click. No need to learn complicated techniques or spend valuable time editing your photos.
  • Capture the night’s sky: Night Sight mode makes taking pictures in the dark easier than ever. Plus, a new feature called astrophotography[1] will let you take gorgeous pictures of the night’s sky in a single click.
  • Get help finding the right shot: Ever struggle to find the right shot for a difficult photo? HDR+ and dual exposure control will allow you to adjust the color and exposure of a picture before you even take it, so you’ll find the perfect picture.

An improved Google Assistant

The new Google Assistant[2] makes it easier than ever to have more fun, accomplish more, and manage your life. Use your voice to multi-task across multiple apps, and do everything from search YouTube to find the right restaurant for dinner.

If you’re sick of robocalls and spam, Google Assistant can even find out who is calling and save you the trouble of picking up an unwanted call.

A new way to control your phone

The new Pixel 4 has Quick Gestures, powered by Motion Sense,[3] which lets you control your phone using your hands without even touching your device. This is perfect for when you are cooking, eating, or otherwise multitasking.

Pixel 4 or Pixel XL: What’s the difference?

As the name suggests, the big difference between these devices is size. Both screens provide a smooth visual experience, but the Pixel 4 has a 5.7-inch QHD + flexible OLED display with 444 ppi (pixels per inch) pixel density, and the Pixel 4 XL has a 6.3-inch QHD+ flexible OLED display with 537 ppi pixel density. Choosing which one is right for you will probably come down to what size of phone you prefer. If you are looking for a larger device for tasks like gaming, watching movies, or multitasking, for example, you might prefer the Pixel 4 XL.
