Upgrading from the Google Pixel 3a XL to the Pixel 4 XL means a boost in almost every aspect of the phone. The display size goes from 6.0-inches to 6.3-inches (while keeping the phone the same overall size) and adds HDR support along with Smooth Display for a refresh rate of up to 90hz. The Pixel 4 adds a soft-touch glass back along with water resistance and comes powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 855 processor with 6GB of RAM and up to 128GB of internal storage. The camera is also improved with the addition of a 16MP telephone camera on the rear. The front camera also switches from a standard 8MP to a wide-angle 8MP.
