Pixel 4 Disappointment? Top 5 reasons to skip 2019’s Google phones

by birtanpublished on September 23, 2020

new pixel phones from Google Mark one of the highlights of the year for Android fans fresh hardware from the company that makes Android and plenty of new stuff in terms about the hardware and Google software magic along potentially

With a few nasty surprises but before you think we're gonna spend this entire video trashing the pixel for before you've even seen it a little bit of housekeeping this video is all about how the pixel for and for excel might

Disappoint us based on the information we know so far obviously we don't know everything yet and for a more optimistic outlook you might want to check out our video on five reasons why the pixel form might be one of the best phones of 2019

And with TAS onto our list I'm Alex Madrid central and here's why the pixel form might just end up disappointing us after all with one or two exceptions like the pixel to excels panda paint job pixel phones have rarely moved the

Needle in terms of smartphone aesthetics and with pixel 4-series that trend looks set to continue the back panel based on the leaks in Google itself is all black with a Google logo it's not even clear whether the trademark two-tone finish

From previous year's pixels will be sticking around instead you have something which let's be honest looks more like the rumored iPhone 11 design than any previous pixel it's possible Google's got some surprises to show us

Possibly some striking new colors as it stands though the back of the pixel for we've seen in leaks so far looks super generic plus around the front you have a giant forehead necessary for the project soli radar 3d

Face unlock tech and the usual cameras and sensors and that's fine especially if you hate the screen cutouts that dominate elsewhere but at the same time a phone with the giant bezel risk looking dated in late 2019 imagine

Seeing this design or a store shelf next to say a1 plus em fro or galaxy note 10 to the let's face it pixels do have a reputation of slowing down over time but what I'm talking about when I say the pixel fours might be under SPECT is that

Google always seems to think the usual rules of high-end smartphone hardware don't apply to its handsets see last year's pixel 3 XL with just 4 gigs of RAM which led to memory management issues when using the camera same deal

To a certain extent with a missed 60 or gigs of base storage and smaller battery capacities than many of their contemporaries these are surely phones they'll be selling for the top dollar and based on the leaked specs we have

There's only a meager upgrade to six gigs of RAM in both pixels with the same cramped 64 gigs of Base storage both are fine for now but both limit the phone's capabilities in future Plus you have battery capacities that see only a minor

Bump from 3 XL to 4 XL and a downgrade in capacity for the smaller pixel 4 which brings me to my next point on the face of it the room at 37 hundred million power capacity for the pixel 4 XL founds pretty decent but remember

That we're expecting both new pixels to use fast and likely power-hungry 90 Hertz OLED panels that's in addition to Google's impressive new project soli feature for precise wireless gestures not a lot of new technology likely to

Make a serious dent in any smart phone battery consider the oneplus 7 pro for instance which managed just about average battery life from a larger four thousand milliamp hour cell with a lot of that battery drain being taken up by

The 90 Hertz panel if the numbers play out as expected in Google doesn't have some magic optimizations a bits lead to improve longevity then we could see the pixel 4 XL battery life being a step below that of the oneplus 7 pro and

That's to say nothing of the small pixel pores expected twenty-eight hundred million power cell which looks near certain to limit fans of the smaller phone to yet another year of mediocre battery life last year saw Google

Shipping phones with one rear camera when two was the standard elsewhere and this year it seems Google will limit itself to to just a standard in a telephoto when table stakes is increasingly three or even four rear

Cameras while it's true the pixel series hasn't needed to rely on extraordinary optics to take stunning photos there's also no substitute for having a dedicated ultra-wide lens phones like the galaxy s 10 and Huawei P 30 Pro can

Take amazing wide-angle photos and I'd like to see what Google with its HDR Plus technology could do with ultra wide photography on a phone but it looks like I'll have to wait another year to see this that's disappointing when even

Apple is reportedly getting in on a triple camera trend with the iPhone 11 plus it's unclear whether the pixel 4 will even offer ultra wide selfies like it's pre sesss did diagrams of the phones top

Bezel released by google show only one front-facing camera and for a series whose greatest strength has arguably been photography these seem like weird oversights okay I'm not gonna spend yet another video complaining about Neath

Android 10 navigation gestures they are optional in the new version of the OS and I expect that to be the case when google ships is new phones too but these new gestures have been contentious among people have used the Android 10 beta so

Far and they conflict with many of the gestures built into popular Android apps now Google has made sure developers can work within the new gesture system with the option for exclusion areas so apps can work properly but this is still

Gonna be a pain point for many early pixel 4 adopters to the point where frustration might even lead to some units being returned anyway let me be clear in that I'm not expecting the pixel 4 series to be bad phones by any

Means just that the hardware and software trajectory of these phones could leave a few significant points where they could disappoint but that's enough for me for now hit the comments let us know what you're expecting with

The pixel 4 be sure to check out our other video on why the pixel 4 series might be one of the best Android phones of 2019 and subscribe so you don't miss our eventual hands-on coverage of both phones thanks for watching and I'll see
