Do you think the Pixel 4 is still worth getting?

Here in mid-2020, the Pixel 4 and (and 4 XL) are two phones we still tend to recommend quite a bit. They aren't perfect devices, largely in part due to lackluster battery life, but things like the camera and software allow them to stand out as worthy Android handsets.

The fact of the matter, however, is that the Pixel 4 series is quickly approaching its one-year birthday. With the Pixel 5 expected to drop in the coming months, are other people still eager to recommend the Pixel 4 as a good purchase?

Here's what some of our AC forum members have to say.

I have the 4 XL and I think it’s excellent for my daily use..battery is also good enough to get me through the day easily and I would recommend phone especially with a discounted price ..Note 10 + is also awesome if you can get your hands on a good deal ...


I came from a s20 ultra and returned it for the pixel 4 XL and couldn't be happier about it. The ultra was just too much phone (and money) for what I needed out of a phone. I love the pixel 4 xl. Like you I was concerned about all the battery life complaints I've read about. I can tell you from my experience, they seem to be greatly exaggerated. On a typical day, my phone comes off the charger...


My experience is pretty much the same as steveo82 above. I bought my 4 XL in April for about 1/2 price (New - Open Box) and love it. I think I'm a Pixel owner for life now. I am getting about the same results as above, off the charger around 5:30 AM and back on around 10:30 PM each day, and usually have between 25 - 35% battery remaining. It gets me through a normal day so I am happy with...


it is worth it. has an amazing software. I came from a Note 10+ and hand it to my wife when i got my 4xl it felt like there was something missing.


Now, we want to hear from you — Do you think the Pixel 4 is still worth getting?
