    I have the small Pixel 4. This phone is so smart, helpful and fast. This battery last through out the day but mostly because it forces me from being so addicted to the phone all day. I charge it at night and when I drive.

    Pixel 4 here, coming from the Pixel 2. Battery is not as good but fine.
    How could it possibly be worse than the Pixel 2 ?

    I've had my 64gb, "oh so orange" Pixel 4 for a few weeks now. I upgraded from a Pixel 2 XL and I couldn't be happier. Battery life has been great. I've been able to get through every day with ease, except for ones where I'm using my phone non-stop for the entire day (But those are few and far between). Mind you, that's with 90hz forced on 24/7. The size is perfect and much more manageable than the XL. The screen and camera are great and I agree entirely that a lot of reviewers have blown the battery issues a bit out of proportion.

    Yes, prior to the announcement, I deliberated over the smaller vs larger Pixel 4. I decided I wanted pocketability, and went with the smaller 4.
    Battery life has been non-issue for me. Never has been, as I am well -equipped to charge wherever I am at. I have the Pixel stand at my desk at work, I have wireless charging on my chair in the living room, at my desk at home, and in the mount in my car.
    And if I were to be out and about, away from an electrical outlet, I have always carried a small anchor battery pack in my pocket. I'm just prepared like that!
    I thoroughly enjoy the smaller form factor.

    I have the 4. I feel like it will be more common outside places like this (i.e. Android forums). For me, the battery life couldn't get worse than my LG G6 which had started lasting only a few hours. And my key piece was a phone I could actually hold in my hand

    Bought a Pixel 3a in May as a second phone to go with my iPhone and ended up selling my iPhone 8 plus. I'm wondering if there's anybody here that bought the 4 coming from a 3a cuz the 3's battery life is great....Would like to hear your experience...

    It's kind of impossible for the 4 to have better battery life than the 3a since the 3a has 200mAh extra and a more efficient chipset.

    He didn't say it would or even might have better battery life. All he said was he wanted to know if anyone had gone from a 3a to a 4, most likely to see how battery life compares to the 3a. It most likely will have less battery life, but to what degree is what he wants to know.

    What do you think if someone (me) is using phone 99% for those tasks:

    1) Calls
    2) Viber and Whatsapp messages
    3) Browsing and sometimes Youtube mainly to entertain my kid for few minutes or to watch reviews or something I am interested in.
    4) Airbnb and Booking.com apps for my rentals
    5) Instagram and Reddit reading
    6) Taking pictures and videos (but for personal use not like vloging)

    Occasionally (maybe few times in a year):
    1) Use google maps for navigation
    2) Play some games while waiting or have to loose time. But it is not PUBG or such games, but rather all kind of puzzles and logical. Nothing that cant run fluidly on Samsung A50 (my current phone).

    Never:
    1) Listen to music,
    2) Stream videos
    3) Facebook
    4) Play or use apps that are demanding high resources


    Will Pixel 4 (not XL) could stand whole day of usage if I use it in way described above? I really like dimensions and camera and whole concept of phone, but I am afraid of the battery as it is stated everywhere as big problem. So I can't decide is it real problem for power users or generally...

    Your usage is very similar to mine and I have no problems getting through a full day with the smaller Pixel 4. I do 16 hour shifts at work and usually get home with more than 30% left. However I do not have desk job so my phone usage at work is mostly some calls and messaging, with a bit of web browsing and app use during breaks. When I work a regular 8 hour shift I'll get home with more than 60% battery left.

    So for me the battery life is fine, and the ease of using the smaller form factor is great. The Pixel 4 is probably the most comfortable phone I've ever owned in that regard. Probably my favourite phone of the last 5 years (and I've owned a lot lol).

    Your mileage may vary, but I can tell you that my personal experience with the Pixel 4 has been great, and nothing like the doom and gloom so many reviewers are spewing.
