Yesterday, during its “Made By Google” conference, the American search giant announced the new Pixel phones, which are Pixel 4 and Pixel 4XL, to form the fifth generation of phones manufactured by Google itself as a simulation of Apple's experience in developing both the operating system and the phone itself at the same time. The phone, of course, comes with a raw and customized version of the Android system, so it undoubtedly mimics Apple in part, in terms of system stability and smooth performance, but in general, is the new phone able to compete with the latest Apple phones? Is it the best Android phone?

Is the new Google Pixel 4 phone able to compete with the iPhone?

Screen and design: iPhone 11 or pixel 4?

Both phones, in fact, come with designs that everyone may not like, the Pixel 3 phone that was launched the previous year came with a huge, unjustified and very, very ugly notch, but Google has addressed this problem this year only by abandoning the whole thing and returning things to their normal course. The phone came with a screen with a large upper and lower phones.

The design in general is due to a matter of opinions and tastes, but I - personally - may prefer the pixel 4 design because it does not carry a notch and at the same time it carries an excellent and large screen, especially the one we see on the 4XL pixel. As for the screen, there is no dust on the iPhone screens, beginning with the iPhone X, except that apparently Google has provided everything it can offer in this phone, as it finally came with a screen with a frequency of 90Hz in addition to the excellent screen resolution to the point of obtaining an A + rating from DisplayMate. (The test may have taken place before the phone was released by agreement between Google and the evaluation companies.)

As for the materials of manufacture, they are of course absolutely flawless, as we are talking about phones that come at prices of 1000 USD! But Apple excels in providing a wide range of colors to choose from, while Google has only offered three colors, which are white, black and orange.

Face recognition ... Time to lose Apple?

Up to the present moment, Apple's face recognition system and Face ID are the best and most powerful, however According to Google Pixel 4 phones will offer the fastest screen unlock system in the world, thanks to the new Motion Sense technology in Pixel phones, which works through the Soli chip that we have heard a lot about.

In terms of gear; The facial recognition system in BISCLE 4 phones is the same as that found in iPhones and many other phones that have adopted this technology from other companies, but the credit for the speed of this system is due to the Motion Sense technology - or motion sensing - as this technology will alert the cameras and sensors to recognize it. The face as soon as you approach or hold the phone up, so the face recognition system starts to work completely before you even hit the power button!

We should mention that Google has been working on this Soli project for years, and the biggest problem with placing it inside smartphones is the size of its large chip, and this explains the large upper edge of the phone .. This motion-sensing technology will have many other advantages, but it may not be very useful, for example On that, you can play the next or previous song by pointing to the front camera!

Pixel 4XL and iPhone 11 in terms of performance

Pixel phones follow Apple's approach not to increase the capacities and capabilities of the internal components for no reason and are satisfied with providing the phone with what the user needs, as is the case with the iPhone.

The new pixel will finally come with 6 GB of RAM and with batteries that are 2800mAh for the smaller phone, 3700mAh for the larger phone, and 5.7-inch and 6.3-inch screens respectively while both come with a Snapdragon 855 processor (not the modern 855+) that's while the iPhone is The Pro 11 comes with 4 GB of RAM, while the Pro Max version outperforms the 4XL pixel in both screen and battery size.

The performance story here is not complicated, both phones are supposed to provide you with the best possible performance because the company that develops the phone is the one that develops the operating system, but the superiority remains here for the A13 Bionic processor in the iPhone 11.

Camera: iPhone 11 Pro vs Pixel 4

The iPhone 11 Pro (and Pro Max) comes with three rear cameras, a 12-megapixel camera with a wide lens and another with the same resolution with an Ultra-Wide lens, in addition to a telephoto camera for close-ups, which also comes with the same resolution. On the other hand, the Pixel 4 comes with two cameras for the first time in its history, the first with a resolution of 12.2 megapixels and the second is a 16-megapixel telephoto.

Of course, practical experience is the one that governs here, but Google’s superiority in the field of cameras and imaging in smartphones did not start yesterday! As a phone like the Pixel 2 is still capable of launching dozens of modern phones until now and the competition is getting stronger after the improvements that Pixel 4 has obtained now, including the Live HDR feature, to be able to control HDR while shooting directly, including lighting and shadows, as well as the space photography feature A feature that we will not use most often, as you need to hold the phone in front of the sky for several minutes to take a satellite photo ... I mean, a feature that we will use once when buying the phone, and then you will die.

During the conference, Google showed a great interest in the fact that the camera is based primarily on the software (operating system) and not the hardware represented in the number and accuracy of lenses, which is something Apple did like when talking about features such as Deep Fusion or Night Mode.

Finally, one of the things that angered users is that Pixel phones will come with capacities of 64 GB or 128 GB and nothing more! This is at a time when companies such as Apple allow 512 GB phones and sometimes we find companies that offer 1 TB phones in the Samsung S10 +, knowing that the regular Google Pixel 4 phone will be available at a price starting at $ 800 and the pixel 4XL will start from $ 900 and will not have a headset in The can!

Do you think that Pixel phones outperform the iPhone? And in your opinion .. Have you ever thought about owning a Pixel phone?
