The Pixel 4/4XL is the most ambitious smartphone Google has ever launched. The Google pixel 4 starts at $799 for a 64GB model, and you can get a model with double that storage for $899. The Google Pixel 4 gain the most of popularity among some people,eventhough it does’t have 5G support . There are some advantages to the smartphone. It has industry-leading cameras, super-smooth 90Hz display and intuitive Face Unlock and Clever AI software features. But , short battery life holds it back. Comparising huawei mate 30 pro and samsung galaxy s10, the battery life is weaker.On the other hand, the most regretable thing is that the Google Pixel 4 doesn’t have a 3.5mm headphone jack. As is well-known, its Pixel 3a and Pixel 3a XL has introduced the 3.5mm headphone jack.Now, the 3.5mm headphone jack has been cancelled to the newest phone.
What were the effects the headphone jack’s removal? If you are used to the headphone jack, you will feel annoyed without it . You can still use the USB-C port for wired audio, or get an adapter.What’s more , you can connect your favorite wireless headphones/earbuds to the Pixel 4 and listen to music that way. The removal of the headphone jack affected the industry at large.So, we are forced to buy wireless earbuds ,while wired headphones and earbuds will be decreased gradually. It means you need to cost much to pay for that,because the wired headphones is more cheaper than wireless earbuds in some way.
As for the next problem:Does Google Pixel 4 /4XL have wireless charging? Yes,The Pixel 4XL is also confirmed to support the 11W wireless charging. So far , it was a genuine surprise. Any Qi-compatible charger that can output 11W or more should be able to recharge the Pixel 4 at that maximum power level. But if you want to buy the charger,it is required to support Qi’s Extended Power Profile (EPP).Samsung, Anker, Mophie, and other brands are EPP-compliant,which you can choose from .
