Pixel 4 vs Galaxy S10: Specifications
Almost all flagship phones released in 2019 have nearly the same specs, but there are a few very notable things you'll want to pay attention to below. Those being the internal storage and battery sizes. That's about the only difference worth talking about.
Galaxy S10 Specs (Regular and Plus)
That's one powerful phone with all the bells and whistles. All Samsung Galaxy S10 models start with 128GB of storage, plus you can add a microSD card. They also have big batteries.
Pixel 4 & Pixel 4 XL Specs
These phones have nice screens, plenty of power, water-resistance and fast charging capabilities. The problem we see comes down to the small battery options Google chose, and the fact that the Pixel 4 comes with only 64GB of storage while the Galaxy S10 has 128GB at the minimum. Mine for example, has 128GB and a 512GB MicroSD card. Google can't match that.
No phone in 2019 should only have 64GB of storage. That's a crap move Google (and Apple) and frankly not only greedy but ridiculous. Get with the program!
That aside, we're also very worried (and frustrated) about the small 2,800 mAh battery in the smaller Pixel 4. As a result, we recommend getting the Pixel 4 XL for the bigger battery, which is still only 3,700 mAh compared to the massive 4,100 mAh one inside the comparable Galaxy S10+. A phone which, by the way, doesn't have to push 90 Hz.
If battery life and storage is important, and it probably is, you might want to skip the Pixel this year.
