Upgrading from a Google Pixel 2 XL to a Pixel 4 means skipping a generation, and also going from the XL-sized to the standard-sized model. Skipping a generation will bring an overall boost in performance due to the newer Snapdragon 855 processor and 6GB of RAM. Going to the standard-sized model means getting a slightly smaller display, 5.7-inch as compared to the 6.0-inch display on the Pixel 2 XL. Of course, the Pixel 4 display does have HDR support and Smooth Display (up to 90hz refresh rate). The Pixel 4 also saw an improved rear-facing camera setup with the addition of a 16MP telephoto, which sits alongside a 12.2MP dual-pixel camera.
