Score: 9.86/10

Google sells the Google Pixel 4 XL with a high performance 2840 megahertz Octa-Core processor, included in a Qualcomm Snapdragon 855 SM8150 system chip and a great 6 GB RAM. A great advantage of the Google Pixel 4 XL is its large 64 GB internal storage and whereas it doesn't include a slot for external memory cards, it it is more than enough to store tons of apps, games, pictures and videos without having to worry about running out of space at all.

This cellphone is a very compact cellphone, given that it has a 6.3 inches display and it has just 6.31" long and 2.96" wide. This cellphone is thin and good-looking, with a thickness of just 0.32". Apparently Google forgot about optimizing the weight in this 6.81 ounces device. Google made this cellphoneavailable only in clearly white, just black and oh so orange.

This cellphone features two cameras, a 12.2 megapixels back camera and an 8 MP front facing camera. this cellphone's back camera has a maximum F1.7 aperture so it can capture great pictures even in low-light situations. It also shoots videos in 3840x2160 (4K) at 30 fps, and slow-motion videos up to 1280x720 (HD) up to 240 fps. In addition, this cellphone's camera also features time lapse video.

Google equipped this cellphone with a high-tech 6.3" display, and a resolution of 1440 x 3040 , providing this cellphone with a unique image quality.

The Google Pixel 4 XL features a 3700 mAh huge non-removable battery that provides the Google Pixel 4 XL a good battery duration. An issue to take into consideration is that this cellphone's battery is not removable so you can't throw it away and buy a new one when it starts to lose its charge, while having 3700 mAh you will probably buy a new phone before that happens.

This device includes wi-fi connection (which can be provided to other devices around, acting as a mobile hotspot), LTE-A 4G super fast data connection and also HSPA+ data connection (a lower speed 4G variation) and fast 3G data connection, supported by HSDPA and HSUPA technologies.
