The Pixel 4 is another monster smartphone the world is expecting right now. However, when it gets unveiled at an event on the 15th of October, it will be ready to face stiff competition from the Samsung Galaxy S10, Note 10 series, OnePlus 7T and most especially, the popular and new iPhone 11 series.
Apple has improved the quality of the new iPhone’s cameras, processor and batteries, and even if we adore the iPhone 11, we feel the iPhone 11 Pro Max is the best mobile device you can purchase right now.
Make no mistake about it though, the iPhone 11 Pro Max could be dethroned. Going by the rumors, leaks and announcement from Google that are circulating about the Pixel 4, it might be the phone to make that happen.
Based on the information we have about the iPhone 11, and the clues we have been gathering on the kind of device the Pixel 4 would be, here is How The Pixel 4 Can Beat The iPhone 11?:
1. A Better Zoom Camera
Rumor has it that the new Pixel 4 has 2 rear cameras, but the iPhone 11 Pro has 3. However, there is a key area where the Google Pixel might have an indisputable edge.
The iPhone 11 Pro and Pro Max possess a 12MP 2x optical/10x hybrid zoom telephoto lens, and truth be told, they are amazing. But the Pixel 4 might come with a superb 16MP telephoto camera. The higher resolution is a clear plus but what will make it stand out the most is a higher magnification than 2x. 5x optical zoom is what Huawei P30 Pro comes with, Oppo Reno is home to 10x Zoom, and OnePlus 7 Pro goes for 3x.
So if Google should decide on more than 2x optical zoom, and then combine that with its Super Res digital zoom ability from the Pixel 3, the Pixel 4 is going to be a boss phone.
2. Night Sky Photos And Doper Action Shots
The Pixel 4 might surprise us with its upgraded Night Sight mode. A few sample pictures we have seen flaunted some dope night sky photography, which showed that the low-light mode can rival Apple’s night mode brilliantly.
High-end phone cameras are known for their ability to create slo-mo videos, but the Pixel 4, according to reports, will come with a fresh Motion Mode, useful for action shots. It will not just slow your clip down in ways you will love, it will also artfully blur the background in ways that will definitely grab your attention. The iPhone 11 does not have this feature even if it also comes with the normal slo-mo videography capability.
The Pixel 4 possesses the dual exposure feature as well. This lets you tweak brightness and contrast seamlessly through a pair of sliders in the camera window. It will give owners a type of creative control that cannot be rivalled by other phone companies, including Apple.

3. No Notch
Nobody can categorically state if lacking a notch is an advantage or a disadvantage, but some owners might still fancy it. Since it used a notch on the Pixel 3 XL, Google could decide to use the regular top bezel on the Pixel 4 and Pixel 4 XL, according to leaked reports. It is quite old school compared to the punch-hole or complete displays with pop-up cameras that we’ve been seeing throughout 2019, however, if you don’t fancy the notch at all, then the iPhone cannot appeal to you since it retains this Apple design signature for at least 12 more months.
4. A 90Hz Display
Leaked specifications have revealed that the Pixel 4 possesses a 90Hz Smooth Display, which is better than all modern smartphones’ refresh rates except the OnePlus 7T, 7 Pro and Asus ROG Phone 2. These quick refreshing displays make swiping via webpages and moving around the device, super fun even if it is difficult to understand until after seeing one in action in your presence.
Because the iPhone 11 still comes with a plain old 60Hz display on the triple models, Pixel 4 clearly won this round.
