    Running a Pixel 3, it's fine, it works, I don't really need to upgrade. Battery life isn't the best but I've generally got a charger with me so not a huge deal especially right now working from home. However with the price drop on the Pixel 4 XL I'm very tempted to snag one right now. Anybody come from a Pixel 3/3XL have any regrets going to a 4/4XL? I just don't see a phone I'm really going to want for the next year due to pricing and I ruled out the S20 because of the camera inconsistency but I'm not sure I want to live with a Pixel 3 for another year.

    Thanks in advance.

    I'm not coming from a Pixel 3. But coming from a Moto phone to a Pixel 4 XL I have no regrets....if you can find a good deal. I don't think it's necessarily worth the full price amount (nor is any new phone these days). Seems like a great phone to me so far. Face unlock works great for me, and a a few apps still don't support it. Battery life for me has been really good so far.

    $599 right now seems like a great deal.

    I came from a Pixel 3 XL with an iPhone XS in between. Got my Pixel 4 XL this week. It's really refined compared to the Pixel 3, which was a big step up from the Pixel 2.

    Overall I'm really impressed and think the price is definitely worth it.

    Nope, I am not doing it. My pixel 3 XL still running perfectly and for me, it's not worth wasting $600. I'll look at pixel 5 when it comes out.

    By the way, there is no free full resolution backup on pixel 4s. If that is something you care about.

    Good luck with your decision. Not saying it is not a good phone, I am just very satisfied with my Pixel 3 XL is all.

    Good to know thank you!

    I'm finding that it seems like some of the criticism of the pixel 4 & 4XL from the reviewers are not what the actual users are finding or they are exaggerated.

    I feel the same. Many reviews were exaggerated in my opinion. So far, this has been a great phone for me; no complaints.

    I've always been function over form so I don't even notice many of the criticisms. The forehead is irrelevant to me coming from Pixel 3 XL and iPhone X. I love Pixel Android, the screen is great, haptics are solid, performance is smooth. I'd love to see better battery life, that's probably my biggest complaint already.

    I came from iPhone 11 Pro. Got a smoking deal on 4 XL for $400 (CAD 600) So couldn't resist. Would be selling my iPhone 11 Pro for about $800. Its been good experience so far (2 days!!). Constantly fiddling with it unlike iPhone. Hopefully batter life settles down. Currently not getting through the day. But I'm constantly on it.

    Go for it if you get a good deal.

    I use Amazon Photos for free full resolution backups.

    I think that was a great buy. I switched back to the Pixel 4 XL after selling my S20 Ultra. I really like the camera, Google's version of Android, the overall look and feel of the phone. But due to Covid19, I will be putting my Pixel down for awhile. I am a deputy sheriff, so I can't use face unlock while wearing a mask. We have a limited supply of masks and don't want to touch it unnecessarily, so I will be switching to a device with a fingerprint sensor.

    Thanks, really looking forward to it.

    Man that kind of sucks. Nothing you can tie it to for smart Lock while working?
