    I've only had my 4xl for a few weeks, but battery life has been fine. Very happy with the phone so far.

    It's definitely a solid performing device.. quick at everything.. I keep it at 90hz all the time too I failed to mention earlier ... I just rather enjoy the phone ... you can't always go by all them reviews ... and there is always something about using stock Google that just works ... Call screening and all the ease of use interaction with daily usage ...

    I've been running Android 11 everyday since I posted the screenshot above and it has been surprisingly stable. Now is it a software that screams "new software", nope. But hey it's not bootlooping, the battery life seems better (but that could be because I factory wiped my phone installing this and did no reinstall all my apps just the basics), and I'm literally typing on it now and it don't feel like an alpha or a beta. In fact, if someone told me this was a final build I would not be mad, well except the fact it doesn't have a lot of new features on it.

    I’m an Android user ever since because of it’s convenience and battery life. But I have never used Pixel before. I have used Asus, Lenovo and Samsung. I am thinking of switching to Pixel but I am still indecisive about it. Would anyone recommend that I try Pixel or should I stick with my old brands?

    I'm on my 2nd Pixel, now with the 4XL. I'm a former Moto guy. Very pleased with the 4XL.

    Bee a moto person for many years, switch to LG G7 last year cause Moto appears, to me, to be ok but phones are cheap. Had a S20+ for a day and sent it back since it wold not register my right thumb print. Got the 4XL and so far after a week, I like it. Good battery life, great screen fast and I also have it set to 90hz. But might not be for everyone. It isn't small, but I have large hands so easy to operate with one hand. And I really like the facial recognition and it works every time.

    Well...I did it. I jumped on the Pixel wagon. . I found a deal on a Pixel 4XL for a great price and bought it. I have been contemplating buying a Pixel for a few years. I'm still getting it all setup & updated, but really liking it so far. More to follow later, I'm sure. [​IMG]

    So far....so good. I'm liking the phone and like the "Pixel experience" if that makes sense. I do miss chop for flashlight, but can live without that. So far, my bank is the only app I use a lot that does not support Google's face unlock as a biometric option; but they do support Apple face unlock (go figure). I have already contacted their developer support and asked when they plan on updating their app. Other than that face unlock seems to work very well. All in all it feels like a really nice phone so far, as much as one can determine with the first day of use.
