OnePlus 7 Pro vs Pixel 4 XL: Specs

This year the OnePlus 7 Pro is available online or in T-Mobile stores and works with all carriers, as well as Verizon. And for the first time, the Pixel 4 is available from all four major US carriers too, which is a big deal for Google. You can walk into a T-Mobile store or Best Buy and try both devices. That's very helpful!

Either way, here are the hard numbers. 

OnePlus 7 Pro Specs (Official)

  • 6.67-inch Quad HD Super AMOLED Display (90Hz)
  • Snapdragon 855 Processor with 6-12GB of RAM  (6, 8, or 12GB options)
  • 128 or 256GB of storage, no microSD slot
  • Triple 48MP f/1.6 OIS + 8MP f/2.4 telephoto zoom with OIS + 16MP Ultra-wide angle PDAF sensor
  • 16 Megapixel f/2.0 front-facing Pop-up selfie camera (and yes, it’s durable)
  • Android 9 Pie
  • Faster Screen Fingerprint Unlock
  • 4,000 mAh battery with 30w Dash Charging 
  • Splash-Resistance 
  • BT 5.0, NFC, 5G support, alert slider, NO 3.5mm headphone jack

That's one powerful phone. The OnePlus 7 Pro comes in different storage/RAM configurations, including a 12GB RAM model that's super fast. It's impressive. Sadly, Google doesn't offer very much RAM, storage, or battery capacity. 

Pixel 4 XL Specs (Official)

  • 6.3-inch Quad HD Super AMOLED Smooth Display (90 Hz)
  • Snapdragon 855 Processor with 6GB of RAM
  • 64 or 128 GB of storage, no microSD slot
  • New Dual 12MP + 16MP Rear Dual Camera setup (f/1.7 aperture, OIS, EIS, 4K) and a telephoto lens
  • 8MP f/2.0 front-facing selfie cameras
  • Android 10
  • Face Unlock Tech (no fingerprint sensor at all)
  • 3,700 mAh battery with Fast charging, Wireless charging
  • IP68 Dust and Water resistance 
  • Stereo Speakers
  • BT 5.0, WiFi 6, NFC, NO 3.5mm headphone jack

The biggest problem we see is that Google still only offers 6GB of RAM, when everyone else like Samsung, LG, and OnePlus moved to 8GB of RAM inside smartphones. Better yet, the base model only has 64GB of storage, which simply isn't enough. As a comparison, all Galaxy S10 phones have 128GB, and all Note 10 phones come with 256GB or more. 

Then, we're not a fan of the slightly smaller battery from Google, but hopefully they work their magic and keep battery life good enough that the phone lasts all day. 

Either way, these are two fast and powerful phones running stock Android.
