    Google did many things right with Pixel 4 models but battery capacity is not one of them. If you thought about buying it be aware of the usage time people are getting with it:

    P.S: Before any idiot will reply with "but I use phone differently" - good for you but other people might be using it more actively and might not have ability to recharge everywhere so for them this would be useful to know.

    I'm not sure about the Pixel 4 family. It's great that Google is still determined to deliver a fantastic photography experience, but why is a software company unable to move past 4K/30 fps for video in Q4 2019? And I do wonder if recorded audio is still poor. The removal of unlimited OG quality photo backup, a long-running Pixel perk, is disappointing, as is the $100 markup for 64GB of additional UFS 2.1 storage, which only gets you to 128GB. Project Soli is a sophisticated approach to face unlock, but it comes at the cost of a large top bezel and the removal of the rear fingerprint sensor, which was great for effortlessly pulling down the notification shade. Did consumers ask to trade in fingerprint recognition for face unlock on a large bezel, or did Google feel obligated to copy Apple in that area, just as they did when they removed the headphone jack? Hmm...

    There's still a lot to like about Pixel phones in general, but Google could definitely have taken a closer look at their competition and done more to deliver something fresh.
