The iPhone brand has been taking on the market for quite sometime now. However, in the recent past brands like OnePlus and Google have emerged in the gadgets sector. These phones are quite the talk in the telecommunication industry now and they have been offering nothing but the best. Sometime back, I did a review comparison of iPhone 11 Vs OnePlus 8 Pro and I thought to myself, another comparison would not hurt, thus prompting the one am doing now.
iPhone 11 Pro
iPhone 11 Pro being the successor of the iPhone 11 which was quite a success, you would expect more from it. Well you are not wrong, because the phone is pretty good. The phone has got a 60Hz screen with a refresh rate of 120Hz making it among the fastest out there. iPhones tend to have a record of lasting phones as a result of the build quality and the iPhone Pro is not an exception, covered with glass in front, a stainless steel frame and a matte finish makes up completes the purpose. With the A13 Bionic along with 4GB RAM, the phone is pretty fast and can handle massive tasks such as gaming, multitasking and internet browsing. The camera sector is also top notch, images are great with deep fusion except on the ultra-wide lens. Having the OLED screen, there is a bit of flickering as an attempt to save on the power, this feature might affect some individuals especially those prone to migraines. The battery capacity is also great and works as expected.
Google Pixel 4XL
One thing you can be sure to be blown away with in the Google Pixel 4XL is the camera. Images have great dynamic range, sharpness and contrast, they are generally excellent. The smooth 90Hz display also plays a great role in making this gadget worth. Actually, talking of its merits, the very fast infrared face ID on this phone puts it on another caliber. The phone is IP 68 rated which is a plus, also the stereo speakers have great sound quality. However, it has its drawbacks, for example the battery, it barely lasts a day with about 5 hours onscreen time. The lack of a fingerprint scanner is quite peculiar and tends to bring doubts regarding the security level of the phone.

Having looked at the services the phones offers, you can easily decide which one you want as the specifications are all well laid out. One essential thing to note here, for someone who works more in the outdoor and used to going for long hours without charging the phone, then go for the iPhone 11 Pro as the Google Pixel 4XL is a disappointment when it comes to battery. On the other hand, if you do not like a flickering screen as it could trigger some headaches, then you are better off with the Google Pixel 4XL. In general, the iPhone 11 Pro beats the Google Pixel 4XL in most cases and if you do not have some extra dollars to spare, then I recommend the iPhone gadget.
