    The battery life is going to hurt Google, especially considering Apple added 5 hours of battery life to their flagship phone. Google should be embarrassed.

    This will not sell well and doesn't deserve to.

    Even the XL battery life appears very poor, very disappointing but not really unexpected I guess.

    Battery life is unacceptable given the price these costs. Asking $800 for a 2800mah battery is insane.

    The mobile nations (AC and Mr Mobile) were brutal on the phone overall. Verge Dieter was more positive. Either way looks like great experience but battery life is a major concern.

    Personally i don’t care but anyone with some brain would have seen this coming in all reviews. It’s concerning the people leading the pixel team can’t see this based on some of the decisions they make.

    If one were to turn off the 90Hz display, would battery life increase?

    I mean, it sucks that one has to disable one of the core new features of the phones in order to eke out some extra battery life.

    I’m wondering if I should get the OnePlus 7T instead.

    Yeah it does, but according to google it doesn't stay 90hz all the time it switches based on content where as the One Plus either u choose 90hz or 60hz..
    Now on my 1+7pro I leave 90hz all the time and with its 4000mah battery I get no more then 6 hours SOT and 1 day battery life

    From what I gather, the battery life is disappointing, but primarily if you get 3-4 hours of screen time on a regular basis.

    I'm not especially worried about the battery life, my usage doesn't usually involve that much screen time.

    It seems that most, if not all the reviews are of the Pixel 4. Is no one doing a review of the Pixel 4XL?

    I am ok with the 4xl battery at least I think I can go full day but the screen brightness is deal breaker for me because I like to watch movies on my phone and I prefer full bright beautiful screen.

    I cannot remember who it was. There is a Reddit post, where a reviewer stated his battery life got better as time went on. He was getting 6-7 hours of SoT

    Because you may not want them. I don't use every feature on my phone any more than I use every feature in my truck.

    I mean yes and no they still gave them pretty high scores and pretty much giving them a pass because of the camera and the SofTwaRe experience. This phone is a dumpster fire and Google needs a swift kick in the rear.

    But why should you have to turn of one of the tent pole features to eek out just a little more battery life?

    That’s kinda the point of my post. You shouldn’t have to do that. That’s why I’m considering the OnePlus 7T, but I’m not sure if I want just okay cameras.

    A whole lot of not recommended reviews coming in, watched 3 already. I believe there would be more, but many reviewers tow the line by not wanting to completely bash Google.

    Largely around:

    Weak battery results
    small 64gb storage and only up to 128gb
    using older UFS 2.1 flash storage vs UFS 3.0 which is 2x faster and now used by the Note/One Plus
    no 4k60
    no wide camera
    removal of wide camera on front
    face unlock not supported by apps yet, back to passwords
    removing free unlimited photo/video storage
    radar gesturing is just a sales gimmick, few uses
    no increase in charging speeds since Pixel 1 at 18w
    using the older 855 chip when other flagships are on 855+
    same standard camera lens as Pixel 3, which will receive the Pixel 4 software upgrade diminishing P4 advantages

    Yes but it doesn't use 90Hz for everything. I believe it has an auto mode that determines when it doesn't need it if I understood correctly. I'm not sure if you can force it manually but I would assume that exists or should exist.

    For content that doesn't require or take advantage of a high refresh rate.

    To gain battery life for the same reason people turn off other features that are not always required.
