This week in Android: Pixel 4 camera comparisons and full review!
This week we finally dove deep into everything Google’s new Pixel 4 lineup has to offer. We compared the latest Pixel camera to the other mobile photography greats (iPhone 11 Pro Max, HUAWEI P30 Pro, Samsung Galaxy Note 10, and OnePlus 7T) to see which comes out on top. We also compared the Pixel 4 camera performance to previous Pixel offerings, so you can judge for yourself whether or not it’s worth the upgrade.
It isn’t all good news for the Pixel though, as users discovered that the fancy new 90Hz OLED display reverts to 60Hz when below 75% brightness. OnePlus couldn’t help but throw some shade on Twitter, although the original tweet was quickly deleted.
This week we published our reviews of the Google Pixel 4 XL, the understated Nokia 7.2, the eye-catching HONOR 9X, the dual-screened nubia Z20, and the Google Nest Mini.
