It may solely be a PhoneBuff video if you happen to discover a robotic arm flicking by means of a smartphone. The newest video on the YouTube channel pits the Google Pixel four XL in opposition to the Apple iPhone 11 Professional Max in a efficiency check. To no person’s shock, the Apple flagship took the lead whereas the Pixel four XL did present some indicators of enchancment over its predecessor. Even if you happen to don’t approve of such pace assessments, they do deliver out some essential factors on how a telephone handles demanding circumstances.
The iPhone’s effectivity turns into obvious inside the first few seconds of the check when the telephone masses a 500-page doc with out breaking a sweat. Related was the case with Snapseed and Premiere Rush the place the Pixel four XL took a few seconds extra to complete making use of filters and rendering a video, respectively. Load occasions for video games have been comparable on each telephones, however the Google handset nonetheless felt lagging since its opponent had already moved on to the following apps.
Of the 16 apps examined, the iPhone may maintain 11 last-used apps energetic in its 4GB of RAM. The Pixel four XL, then again, may solely deal with 9 apps working in its 6GB of RAM, excluding Premiere Rush and Snapseed. To Google’s credit score, the RAM administration has improved for positive because the Pixel three XL struggled to maintain as many apps in reminiscence throughout an analogous check final yr.
On PhoneBuff’s web site, the pace check leaderboard nonetheless ranks the OnePlus 7 Professional and the Samsung Galaxy Notice 10+ within the high two positions. Although, it’s price noting that these telephones have been examined with 12GB of RAM, which is a number of occasions greater than what each the Pixel four XL and the iPhone 11 Professional Max include.
I’m wondering why the oldsters at PhoneBuff did not use Android 10’s navigation gestures that would’ve been sooner than repeating the two-step strategy of hitting the house button after pulling up the navigation bar in full-screen apps. Not that it will’ve considerably compensated for the efficiency distinction and mediocre RAM administration of the Pixel four XL, however it’s higher to abstain from such inconsistencies — all of the extra so while you’ve already bought a freaking robotic arm to keep away from the precise factor.

The Pixel four XL couldn’t trump even the lower-priced iPhone 11 in PhoneBuff’s battery check, although the distinction wasn’t as drastic this time. Calling, texting, and scrolling by means of Instagram uniformly pulled the battery share down on each telephones. What took a toll on the Pixel’s juice have been gaming, YouTube, internet shopping, and even studying emails. The Apple handset fared higher in standby utilization as effectively.
In the long run, the Pixel four XL gracefully misplaced by a margin of simply 1 hour in each screen-on time and complete awake interval, standing at 7 hours 43 minutes and 23 hours 43 minutes, respectively. These aren’t dangerous numbers contemplating the Pixel is pushing extra pixels at a better 90Hz refresh fee, whereas the iPhone 11 settles for near a 720p LCD panel.
