    *BEFORE YOU COMMENT, UNDERSTAND THE POINT OF THE VIDEO: This video is about how Google Pixel Phones have gotten better each generation and the Pixel 4 XL is the best one yet. MOST IMPORTANTLY, it's about WAITING to buy a month to not only have the bugs and issues worked out but to HELP YOU SAVE MONEY by waiting for the Black Friday deals. I LOVE using my Google Pixel 4 XL and use it DAILY as my MAIN PHONE. I defended it HEAVILY in my full review, which you can watch here: *** PLEASE UNDERSTAND THE VIDEO BEFORE MAKING ASSUMPTIONS AND ATTACKING ME.

      Nah I bought the Pixel 4 day one and had no issues, unlike Samsung S10 where any finger even a piece of gum could unlock the phone using the finger print scanner. Everyone needs to stop listening to the Youtube tech community, you guys do not represent the average consumer and y'all dropped the ball on the Pixel 4 and Stadia. Juan Bagnell already expose all of you!

      Come on now, don't play dumb. Your title is intentionally designed to be inflammatory to get a click. How about what you say at the 0:48s mark? The "wait to buy it" conclusion (which I agree with) is obscured

      I ordered the pixel 4xl during the holiday price drop. Even though I wasn't expecting to be wowed after reading and watching a ton of reviews, it still underwhelmed. Gonna return it this week, and keep rocking my still solid 2xl.

              I have Pixel2XL today and have been using it without any problems for past year, since pixel 3 came out. The battery is great, sound quality is great and image quality is better than most iPhones, especially in the dark. Pixel 4 can't be so much better as you are advertising.

                I feel experientially robbed by Google pixel phones. They promise so much but hugley under deliver to the point where I am just whelmed with the offering. I purchase pixel phones used on eBay now and a generation before current year. Can't wait to buy my used pixel 3 xl on eBay for Christmas. The real price of Google phone.

                        I've had all 3 generations of the Pixel, and now have a 4xl. Never had any issues.

                        They are by far the best phones I've ever used.

                          @microman780 Objectivity can be frustrating when you're biased and unwilling to know the facts. This was a video saying how the Pixel is better than ever and to save money by waiting for deals. You should really check why you're so upset over a PHONE. It's a phone. It shouldn't cause you to cease critical and objective thought. My review video, which you seemed to have not watched, has defended this phone like crazy amongst reviews that unfairly bash it. Once again, you make uninformed judgments.

                          You must have missed the point. If you wait a month, bugs are worked out and you save hundreds of dollars. The they're best I've had, too. Watch before commenting

                          What's BS about saying it's better to wait a month, save a few hundred dollars and get the best phone out there that's more interesting than OP with bugs worked out? Oh, you didn't watch the video? Embarrassing. 😬

                          They are only marginally better than a fucking iPhone.

                                The only phone that I know of that doesn't drop in value so quickly is the iPhone, but that's not Android. On the Android side, at least OnePlus keeps their price the same for a bit.

                              I had to pause the video midway because I've resonated so hard with how much are regretted pre-ordering the phone and then seeing all those discounts go off. Because originally I had my Pixel 2 XL And I was planning on buying it and trading in my phone to get that extra credit. had I'd known that it would have been sold at a lower price point I would have waited to have done that with my old phone...

                              I don't believe people should talked crap about a phone unless it's shit. To be honest Google's the only company that is trying to think out of the box. Yeah no wide angle but not everyone uses it when in need, and battery is good as you are talking about a company who owns all of Android update who can fix with a tweak. Lol. Apple is a good company and Google is to. No one is bad exception on Razors new expensive ass phone. Lol.

                                I loved my pixel 2, so I got the pixel 4 without checking it out first. Boy do I regret that. Why take away the convenient fingerprint scanner?!?!? Why take away the back button and home button?!?! Why take the back button off of the browser??? We have muscle memory and I don't want to do hand gestures or scan my face. Super pissed and disappointed about their design changes. I AM happy with Verizon bc they allowed me to return pixel 4 and still honored the black Friday 200 off towards my new phone with will be the Galaxy S10. Ended up being a 4 dollar difference per month, which is worth not being frustrated with a pixel 4 for 2 years. I say STAY AWAY!!! GOOGLE, the biggest friggin company, needs to listen to consumer feedback. Hope they learn!!

                                  I haven't bought the pixel 4 because I was burned when I got my Pixel 3. Almost right after I bought it there was a price drop. I then owed more for the phone than it would have cost to buy a brand new one. So I won't be buying a pixel 4, at least not any time soon as I still owe a fair amount on my 3 XL as it is and still works decently for the most part.

                                    The Pixel phones isn't about top tier specs and that makes sense because the Pixel phones are about Android the way Google sees it. In addition you have to remember that Google makes the software for multiple OEMs and it wants to stay in its niche with the Pixel phones and maintain Android dominance. People worry to much about specs for most people what Google is releasing is perfectly fine.

                                        Only issue I had on the pixel 3xl was the slow finger print scanner and slow camera launch which was fixed with a software update. Bugs aren't uncommon in New software once wide spread.. (see iOS 13). Every oem I goes on sale on black friday. You couldn't get the black Friday deals on carriers without adding a line, or jumping to unlimited with a trade in or a new customer. If you were upgrading, you were stuck not unless you had a trade in device. Apple was giving bigger discounts at carriers on black Friday and they released only a month earlier. Apps were closing on 3xl because they weren't optimized for the Android 9 yet plus how adaptive battery works. It got better over time. Same on 4xl I got it 2 days ago. Love it, had 5hrs screen on at 15 hrs and 23 minutes with 19percent left on first charge. The phone was price competitively. I agree wait till black Friday. I always do for sammy, Apple and lately Google. This year didn't work out as well for me being I'm on a carrier already. I did get the trade in discount though

                                              Here it was cyber monday. I decided it was time to buy a pixal. Not the pixal4, I choose the 3a XL for 379.00 bucks, why? It's the true value pixal. Unfortunately the flagships are not for what's offered, too expensive. The battery in the base model is beyond ridiculous! Very good & humorous review!

Nope my pixel 3 just got more and more bugs with some of them being fixed. Even oneplus a Chinese startup is better at doing googles software than google, they fixed many of android 10 problem on release which google still cant fix. The latest fix broke the pixel launcher entirely when using android 10 gestures. The launcher just crashes constantly. Google is just such a joke of a company how can anyone sell this to there customers and be proud of it??

                                                  I have no issues with my pixel 3a xl. Probably he doesn't like pixel because is from Google 😅🤔 war China VS USA... Hmmm from where is this guy?

                                                    Dude, I LOVE the Google pixel and defend them like crazy. Could you at least watch the whole video? 🤦‍♂️

                                                  I got a Pixel 3 XL. It was a sub-par phone at best for its price point, and I got rid of it after two months. It wasn't a pretty break-up. The phone bricked, and Goohlgle said they would send me a new one. I got a refurbished phone instead, and the customer service the whole way through was terrible. It got me $500 off my S10+, though, so I guess it was worth something.

                                                    Why is it that everytime there's a Google Pixel review there are always issues. I've had the Google Pixel, Pixel 2xl, and currently Pixel 3xl. In real life I've never had any life altering issues with any of the phones owned. My biggest comments asked on social media is, "What high end camera do you use?" Then I reply, "My Phone... 😊"

                                                      My son bought the 4xl on presale. I just ordered the reg 4 for cyber Monday. Should arrive in a few days. I saved big time as it was free from att.

                                                            Yeah, really. The Pixel 4 XL is the best pixel yet and the holidays were the time to buy. Why do you have a problem with that?

                                                          I agree with this video I had so many problem with the Google pixel 3 and I would be very upset if I didn't have the protection plan because I'm currently on my second Pixel 3 because of all the problems I had with the phone
