Pros and Cons of Pixel 4:

+ Compactness and lightness
- Lower battery capacity
- Smaller Screen


Pros and Cons of Pixel 4XL:

Pros Cons
+ Larger capacity Battery
+ Bigger Display
+ Higher screen to body ratio

Battery Difference Pixel 4 vs Pixel 4XL:

The battery capacity of Pixel 4XL is 900 mAh higher than Pixel 4. The question is, do you need this extra battery capacity? 

If you are a power user, you will require more battery as power consumption will be higher. Unless you are willing to carry a high-capacity power-bank, Pixel 4XL is better for you.

You might be a user who might not be on the phone as much. So, a phone that lasts 4-5hrs of constant use should be enough for the whole day.  You should buy the Pixel 4 if thats the case!

Display & Dimensions difference:

The display of the Pixel 4XL is larger than the Pixel 4 which leads to having bigger dimensions. The refresh rates are same for both with 90hz. The main difference lies on the screen size and ppi (pixel per inch).

Pixel per inch is the density of pixels, the more the better. More ppi means the screen will display with greater detail, better images, better fonts and smoother lines.  

Display of Pixel 4XL is 1440 x 3040 pixels which is roughly an increase in 1.5x the size of Pixel 4. Big screens have their benefits compared to smaller screens like the strain on eyes but it all comes down to preference. 

If you want to view your materials in a big screen with clearer view then Pixel 4XL is for you. 

If you like compact phones which weigh less and ppi won’t affect you then Pixel 4 is the better one.

Which is more budget friendly?

The both phones are in no way cheap compared to other competitors. Since you have already came here, you must be prepared to pay the price. The difference is Pixel 4XL costs a $100 more than Pixel 4. 

This all comes down to if you are willing to pay the extra bucks for the extra features.

Our Verdict: 

Want a bigger battery and display? Buy Pixel 4XL.

Satisfied with smaller battery and display? Save $100 and buy the Pixel 4.

We recommend you to buy Pixel 4XL because of the inconvenience Pixel 4 gives of carrying a charger all the time. In the process you get a bigger and better screen too!
