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)

  • 6.1-inch small model & 6.4-inch Curved Quad-HD Infinity Displays
  • 8-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 855 Processor or Samsung Exynos 
  • 8GB of RAM and 128 or 512GB of storage with microSD expansion 
  • Android 9 Pie With Samsung One UI (Android 10 eventually)
  • Triple Rear Cameras: 12, 12, 16MP (Regular variable aperture, telephoto, and super wide-angle) Main 12MP Dual Pixel will still have OIS, 960 FPS slo-mo, and more
  • Dual 8 and 10MP front-facing camera inside the screen (single cam on smaller S10)
  • In-Display ultrasonic fingerprint scanner under the glass near the bottom (similar to past fingerprint scanner placements)
  • IP68 dust & water resistance (5ft for 30 minutes)
  • 3,400 mAh or 4,100 mAh battery with Faster & Wireless Charging (and reverse wireless charging)
  • Always-On Display, 3D Emoji (like animoji)
  • Samsung Pay, Bixby 2.0, USB Type-C, 3.5mm headphone jack, more

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 

  • 5.7-inch 1080p and 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 (that's it, really?)
  • New Dual 12MP + 16MP Dual Camera setup (f/1.7 aperture, OIS, EIS, 4K) and Telephoto zoom lens, plus powerful software (Spectral sensors)
  • 8MP f/2.0 front-facing selfie cameras (plus other Face Unlock cams/sensors)
  • Android 10 out of the box
  • Face Unlock Tech 
  • 2,800 mAh and 3,700 mAh battery with Fast Charging, Wireless charging
  • IP68 Dust and Water resistance 
  • Stereo Speakers
  • BT 5.0, NFC, Dual-Sim, NO 3.5mm headphone jack

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.
