Welcome back everybody. I hope that you enjoyed yesterday’s post on the Google Pixel Buds. Today, we are going to stay with the theme of Google and talk about the new Google Pixel 4. This phone is relatively new and was launched on October 4, 2019. It is available in white and black, which does not bother me. These are two very simple colors, but they still both look very good on this phone. You can get it for $499 here. There is a lot to talk about with this phone, so let’s get into it.
The one thing that kind of makes me mad about Google phones is that it does not have it’s own operating system. It actually runs off of an Android operating system, but maybe it’s not that big of a deal. To be honest with you. It looks just like an iPhone 11 to me. The camera shape is the same. They put the little square up in the top right corner. The layout of the actual cameras is different, but it looks almost the same.
Google advertises that their phones have something called Night Sight. This allows the phone to take pictures without using the flash at night. There are phones already on the market that have this feature, but it is still nice to have. These days, it seems like the one thing that keeps improving on phones is just the camera, so I would like to see some software improvements as well, which this phone does have, and we will get to that later.
Have you ever tried to take a picture of a full-moon or a shooting star, and you can hardly even see it? Well, this phone could solve that problem. This phone has a camera that can clearly and crisply take pictures of the sky. This is a really cool addition, and one that consumers will enjoy having on their smart phone.
You can take expert photos using the on-screen controls that this phone allows you to have. There are sliders that allow you to control brightness and shadows. This can allow your picture to have amazing contrast that will make your picture look incredible.
Like I said earlier, the camera on this phone is not the same as the iPhone 11. It has two cameras instead of three. Google claims that this allows you to take incredible portrait photos. This allows the background to fade into a nice-looking blur. The two cameras also allow you to zoom in and out easily without losing any of the amazing quality. Again, a lot of the things that are new with this phone come with the camera. But trust me, we’re getting to the cool parts.
The phone comes with free unlimited storage for all of your photos. If you are the type of person that likes to take a lot of pictures, this is perfect for you. You will never have to worry about taking to many and not being able to take any more or losing any of them. This is nice, and gives you better piece of mind when taking pictures.
The new Google Assistant allows you to get a lot more done in a shorter amount of time. You can find photos and set up reminders just by asking. I personally think that Google Assistant is better than Siri on iOS.
Okay, here’s the cool part. New Motion Sense allows you to control your phone without even touching it. You can swipe and use hand motions above it. It uses Radar to detect your hand. Google advertises that this is perfect if you are running on the treadmill, or just waking up in the morning. You can swipe forward or backwards to skip or rewind songs. This is great if you are a person who multitasks often. You can also just swipe your hand over the face of your phone to snooze an alarm. This is probably the one snooze button that you can hit first try first thing in the morning.
It comes with Face Unlock to allow you to easily get in and be productive on your phone. You can get into your phone, make payments, and get into apps using your face.
Another cool feature that this phone comes with is car crash detection. This will detect if you are in a car crash and will call 911 for you if you can’t. There will be a button that pops up asking you if you are okay, or if you need to call 911.
Google Maps Live View allows you to see where you are going while you are walking. You can hold your phone up while on Google Maps, and arrows and a line will cone up to tell you exactly where you need to go.
Like I said above, you can get this phone for just $499 right now using this link. I hope you guys enjoyed this post. Make sure that you check out our Instagram and Facebook pages if you want more in-depth looks at what we do.
