Pixel 4-Smartphone Google wanted to make-Google Store

Pixel 4 is a 5.7-inch terminal, and Pixel 4 XL is a 6.3-inch terminal, but the size of the outer box is the same.

When you open the box, you will find a device wrapped in film. Since the size of the outer box is the same, the space was adjusted according to the size of the saucer part in which this terminal was put.

In addition to the main body, both ends have a charging cable with a USB Type-C plug, a quick switch adapter that converts USB Type-C to Type-A, a USB Type-C 18W adapter for charging, a SIM card slot eject pin, a user Includes guides and guides on safety, warranty, and regulations.

Environment migration from Android devices and iPhones is supported, so you can use it just like previous devices as soon as you finish the setup.

Launched Pixel 4 and Pixel 4 XL. The bezel at the periphery of the screen is quite narrow except for the top.

The upper part of the bezel is slightly thicker due to the camera and sensor. It is not a notch that protrudes in the screen, as seen on iPhone X and later devices.

The actual weight of the terminal is 162g for Pixel 4. Since the display of 161g came out depending on how to put, it is considered to be about 161.5g.

Pixel 4 XL is measured 192g.

The back side looks like this. Because the same gorilla glass 5 as the front is used, durability is secured even without a case, but instead the surface is slippery, so fingerprints and other dirt are unavoidable.

Characteristic camera part. Inside the square frame are two lenses: 16 megapixels, pixel size 1.0 μm, aperture value ƒ / 2.4, lens with a field of view 52 °, and 12.2 megapixels, pixel size 1.4 μm, aperture value ƒ / 1.7, lens with a field of view 77 °. Dual lens specification. Since it protrudes slightly, it is necessary to be careful about catching when using it without a case.

The right side and the top side look like this when facing the terminal screen. The volume button has the same color as the main body, but the power button stands out in white. The side part itself has a matte finish, so it will take your finger well when you hold it.

Similarly the top and left side. There is a SIM card slot on the left side.

Speaker and USB Type-C port on the bottom side. There is no earphone jack, it has a very simple appearance with few openings and buttons.

In addition, it is like this when holding Pixel 4. It feels like it fits in your hand, and you can hold it tightly between your middle finger, ring finger, little finger, and palm.

There is no inconvenience to tap the icon on the left side of the screen. The size is reasonably easy to use.

On the other hand, Pixel 4 XL looks like this. Compared to holding it, it is a difference of 30g, but I feel a heavy weight in my hand. If you hold it, it will be like putting some weight on your palm.

When you frequently operate the left side of the screen, you may be worried about the size of your finger movement. However, if there are many ways to view the screen, such as video playback, there is no doubt that the 6.3-inch large screen is more satisfactory.

After this, we will also make an article about the comparison with previous models such as Pixel 3 and the impression of actually taking it out.
