iPhone 11 Pro Max vs Google Pixel 4 XL

Oliver Beck, Reporter

     If you are looking for Google’s newest phone, with one of the largest cameras on the phone market right now, you are probably looking at the Google Pixel 4 XL. Though the Pixel 4 XL is great, there’s another excellent phone you might be considering, and that’s the iPhone 11 Pro Max from Apple.

     One of the most impressive aspects of the Pixel is that it is 300 dollars less expensive than the similar iPhone 11. Part of the reason for that price point is that while it is impressive, Google only offers a max of 128 GB of storage, while Apple offers a max of 512 GB. 

     In terms of physical size, the Google Pixel 4 XL is two millimeters longer, but the iPhone 11 Pro Max is two millimeters wider, which is a pretty insignificant amount compared to the sheer size of both phones. The Pixel is 6.81 ounces and the 11 is 7.97 ounces which again is pretty similar but the Pixel does pack more into a smaller weight. 

     Both phones have an incredible screen resolution, but the Pixel once again beats Apple in terms of pixels per inch. The Pixel does 537 pixels per inch and the 11 has 458. For comparison, the iPhone 6 has a mere 326 and the original Pixel has 441 ppi but the Pixel was released two years earlier. 

     Both have incredibly intelligent operating systems. In my opinion the interface in all of Apple’s devices is much easier to use, as well as most apps are on Apple’s App Store while not nearly as many are on the Google Play store. 

     The Google Pixel 4 XL and the iPhone 11 Pro Max are incredibly similar in terms  of specifications. In my opinion, the extra 300 dollars is worth it just for the interface, which is easy to navigate, and I am predicting that the price will drop relatively soon.
