    It is lagging in a way my pixel 2xl never has. I don't want to reset the phone as I have set it up the way I like it. And it will take blinking hours to set it up again.

    But the Google assistant often ignored what I am saying. Not sure if that's not a problem with my Lenovo display as well. Perhaps GA is just being laggy right now everywhere.

    It I have had to reboot my phone 2 days in a row to get it to work. And now the Huawei Health app is constantly closing on me. Grrrr.

    I thought I loved this phone but it is annoying me.

    Does it also happen in Safe Mode?

    I will try it once it has finished charging. My husband says his Pixel 2xl is also lagging now. It is since the January update. Same with mine. Wonder if it is a bug?

    Also I noticed face unlock is really bad since the update and I have read online that other people are having unreliable issues with face unlock since the update.

    That sucks I don't have any lag issue with mine and I have quite a bit of apps installed. I bet for sure you have a crappy app that is causing you issues. Sometimes it sucks to figure out which one. Maybe try to remember when this started and what apps you have installed or even updated recently. Sometimes could be just a bad update with bugs. Good luck I hate having to factory reset as well when I can't figure it out but sometimes that route is better than suffering the lag. Good luck.

    There's a chance that the update is still settling in and optimising in the background. Leave the phone charging overnight and see if it improves after doing its thing while idle.

    My assistant also sometimes ignores when i say, but it's been doing that since I had the 3xl. I wish it worked 100% of the time.
    Face unlock has been pretty unreliable, maybe worse since the update. Laying in bed it fails probably half of the time. I'm really beginning to miss the reliability of the fps. Face unlock seems to be creating more problems than it's worth.

    I kinda agree. When I use my 2xl (backup phone) it is nice having the FPS and it just works.

    It isn't lagging since my last restart. Will see how long that lasts. I used to hate Android for being laggy in the olden days. I was spoilt by my 2xl. It was the best phone I have ever owned.

    I highly recommend https://play.google.com/store/apps/d...processmanager . This is the ONLY app that lets you see your CPU usage on modern devices without root access. When idle, my tablet shows 10% load and my Samsung phone (still blazing fast) shows 31-48%. Open the app (when the lag is happening) and wait for the indicator to stabilize and post what range it is hovering at when idle.

    So far no lag. Face unlock is still working well for me, though my father who looks just like me was able to unlock my phone with his face. I do wish it also had a fingerprint sensor though.

    Honestly, for me my Pixel 4 has actually improved in being laggy. When I first got the phone it lagged a bit and had issues but as the updates rolled in it started to improve and I do have quite a few apps installed now and still no lagging issues.

    4XL. Performance has been outstanding. Head and shoulders above the 3XL. Very pleased with performance, multitasking, and battery life. However, I do worry about how well 6GB will handle the workload a year from now.

    Can't you turn off the developer settings, once you enable 90 Hz on? I believe the 90Hz on setting still sticks.

    Is there a way/app to check the refresh rate? Then we could check to see if it's actually sticking. I turned in on in developer options and then turned off developer options. But can't tell if it's sticking or not

    I bout the 4XL on day 1 and don't notice any lag and face unlock has worked almost every time. I'm having the issue with the assistant not hearing me, and it seems to have gotten worse after the Jan update. The biggest issue I've seen so far is that my screen has scratches on it already. I keep my phone in my pocket, and it's scratched on the top and bottom of the screen where the phone slides in and out of my pocket. This is the first phone I've had where the screen scratched and that has me concerned about the glass quality. My 3 year old LG V30 never scratched and looked brand new when I got my 4XL.

    I'm having no issues with face unlock, no lagging, smooth screen, and Google Assistant is working fine. Occasionally, GA seems to get stuck, but I think that's a server side issue. Google is, after all, constantly updating GA, so it might just be that the services are busy updating the GA at the time. Otherwise, I'm having no issues and loving my Pixel 4 XL.

    Exactly why I ALWAYS put a screen protector on my phone. Glass is glass and glass will scratch, crack, break, shatter, etc. Protect it.

    Works fine here. Only annoyance is sometimes face unlock won't work on a table and the annoying double unlock for Google pay.
