Wait For Better Battery Life
Honestly, the biggest downside to the Pixel 4 is the bad battery life. One review even said it has a great camera, and an amazing camera at night, but it's dead before sunset.
The Google Pixel 4 has a 5.7-inch 90 Hz display but a tiny 2,800 mAh battery. As a comparison both the Pixel 3 and the cheap Pixel 3a have a smaller screen and a BIGGER battery than that. The Pixel 3a packs a 3,000 mAh battery inside and lasts plenty long.
Why Google chose a bigger screen AND a smaller battery in the newer "better" phone baffles me. It baffled the entire internet, which is why every single review bashed the battery life or outright didn't recommend people buy the Pixel 4.
Google heard those complaints, loud and clear, and they'll fix it on the Pixel 4a. Leaks indicate the Pixel 4a has a 5.8-inch 1080p screen with a bigger 3,080 mAh battery. It's not as big as we wanted, but it's big enough considering it doesn't have a power-hungry 8-core Snapdragon 865 processor, either.
So, if you want a great phone and love what Google has to offer with the Pixel 4 or even the Pixel 4 XL, but want better battery life, wait for the Pixel 4a.
