Google’s Pixel 4 and 4 XL are here at last, after a mountain of leaks. Preorders are beginning today, and the actual phones ship in just over a week. So let’s assume your heart is set on a new Pixel phone, and you’re not willing to wait for the reviews. Should you upgrade based on specs alone? And if so, to which?
The choice isn’t quite as easy as “big” or “small” because Google’s new phones are expensive, at $799 and up — and because the excellent Pixel 3 and Pixel 3A are still sticking around for hundreds of dollars cheaper.
Here’s the full lineup as of today:
- Pixel 4: $799 for 64GB, $899 for 128GB
- Pixel 4 XL: $899 for 64GB, $999 for 128GB
- Pixel 3: $499 for 64GB, $599 for 128GB
- Pixel 3 XL: $599 for 64GB
- Pixel 3A: $399 for 64GB
