If you've noticed a persistent battery icon when watching videos in full screen on YouTube with the Pixel 4, you're not the only one. Turns out this little annoyance is easy to remove, but it requires turning off one of the Motion Sense gestures.
The latest November update makes the Pixel 4's display stick to a 90Hz refresh rate at more brightness levels, but it still switches to 60Hz when the ambient brightness is set below 42%. Google Pixel 4 XL, on the other hand, no longer switches to 60Hz at lower brightness levels.
Google baked a dedicated Soli chip into the Pixel 4 to enable Motion Sense gestures, similar to Air Motion on the LG G8. But at the moment, there aren't many gestures or apps that take advantage of it — so we've got some suggestions for Google.
Isaac Reynolds, the lead Pixel camera product manager revealed during an interview with The Vergecast that Google did not add 4K/60fps support to the Pixel 4 series as most people don’t actually need the functionality.
