Google Pixel 4 Wishlist: 7 Things We Want To See
Regardless of what anyone says, Google Pixel 3 is one of the best phones released in 2018. In fact, people are looking forward to the Pixel 4. And of course, there’s a wish list of what they want to see on the upcoming device.
Thinner Bezels…Or An All-Screen Design
Looking back at the previous models and comparing it to the current model (Pixel 3), there have been some changes/improvements in terms of its overall design, especially with the body-to-screen ratio.
The Pixel features a 5.0-inch display with a 69 percent screen-to-body ratio. The Pixel 2 features the same 5.0-inch display but features a 67.9 percent screen-to-body ratio. Lastly, the Pixel 3 features a 5.5-inch screen and a 77.2 percent screen-to-body ratio.
Although it would be really nice if Google could give the Pixel 4 an all-screen design, that’s asking too much – perhaps the Pixel 4 XL has a higher chance of getting that. But for the Pixel 4, we’re hoping it will at least feature thinner bezels compared to its predecessor. Plus, the most popular trend of smartphone design these days is going for a larger screen with thinner bezels.
Fix The Brightness Issue
According to YouTuber MrMobile [Michael Fisher], one of the issues he faced with the Pixel 3 is that the display is quite dimmed. And for people who spend a lot of time outdoors, they will have to crank up the brightness. Because of this, it causes battery life issues.
Fix The Memory Management Issues
Another issue mentioned by MrMobile is memory management issues. There are times when you’re doing something like snapping a photo while listing to Spotify, it may cause the music service to forcefully close.
External Memory Please!
The Pixel phones don’t feature doesn’t come with microSD card slot support. You’re stuck with the internal storage which is 64GB and 128GB (though the first-gen Pixel featured 38GB and 128GB).
This is why some would recommend getting the 128GB model which costs $899. The 64GB model costs $799. Hopefully, for the Pixel 4, it will come with a microSD card support.
In-Display Fingerprint Scanner
Rear-mounted fingerprint scanners are now commonly seen in high-end smartphones – some mid-range smartphones even have this as well. It’s time that Google start featuring in-display fingerprint scanners on their next Pixel phones.
Dual Or Triple Rear Cameras
Pixel phones are most popularly known for their camera performance. Despite the Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL featuring only one rear camera (both features 12.2 MP), they are still able to stand toe-to-toe against other smartphones with dual cameras – and in some cases, beating them.
With that, we applaud Google for doing such a great job. However, it would be really interesting if the Pixel 4 could feature dual or triple cameras. Imagine what kind of performance it could offer (just don’t jack up the price…).
A More Powerful Processor
The Pixel 3 is armed with a Snapdragon 845 chip under its hood. Of course, for the Pixel 4, we hope it will feature a more powerful chip, like the Snapdragon 855 which comes with improved performance, 5G support, and built-in artificial intelligence.
