So... do you like how the Pixel 4 looks in those new leaks?

So... do you like how the Pixel 4 looks in those new leaks?
Google's approach to the Pixel design has always been a bit... questionable. Ever since the Pixel 1 hit the streets, people have been scratching their heads at some decisions... then the Pixel 2 XL showed up and its bezels were still being questioned. The Pixel 3 XL caused a mini eruption on the Internet when it dropped its heavy notch.

So yeah, the Pixels' looks are a bit controversial every time a new model drops, but at the very least they have a signature look, right?

Anyway, we've been getting Pixel 4 leaks for a while now and today, finally, we have a new set of renders, allegedly showing us the full thing — the way the Pixel 4 is going to look both on the front and back. Of course, this is not official material, but the leakster @OnLeaks it comes from is usually pretty accurate with any information he divulges.

So, assuming that this is the actual Pixel 4 design... how do you like it?

Do you like the looks of this Pixel 4?

I kind of dig it!

I'm really liking what OnePlus has been doing lately. My next phone might be the OnePlus 7 Pro if the Pixel 4 turns out to be the render here.

I love it actually. Reminds me of a more modern Xperia 10. Its one of the few remaining Android top dogs that doesn't have a curved display and pretty much the remaining oem whose mini flagship is still actually small (5.5') and that's a huge win imo. But maybe I might be in the minority. Totally bezeless phones like we know it are boring imo. I love project soli I love facial recognition I Iove their cameras I love their software I love the design (though not the best)

I'm in the same boat. Not liking the fact that it's only 6.2 in screen either. OnePlus has a gorgeous screen and it's leading my list for my next phone. But I'm sure going to miss Google's camera though.

Had the op7 pro... Amazing screen and speakers but sent it back due to the camera. I went back to my p3xl... The camera difference is so huge in real life :(

Oneplus 7 pro is nice, I'm hoping for a flat oneplus 7t pro.

Nothing too bad to complain about. It's not an S10 but it'll do design wise.

It's a Pixel 2 update. Safe and boring.

Better than iphone 11 ....

This looks ok to me. The top bezel is big compared to Samsung's standards but IMO it's better than a notch.

I agree. It's a design choice that looks decent enough. The camera has that square look, but at least it's nothing incredibly ridiculous or gimmicky like we've seen before.

Agreed. By gimmicky I would be looking at something like the flip up camera on the Zenfone 6. But I will give Asus some credit for taking an innovative chance on a different design.

Turned in my Oneplus 3T for a S10+. Glad I didn't waste my time waiting on this crap. Personally I would have jumped on the OP7 pro if it wasn't so freaking tall.

How difficult is it to ask a design Tips from Samsung or Oppo? I feel the design team in Google are completely lost

Google needs to get a new team of designers, current team sux.

So they copied 2 years old Chinese design on the back from LeEco. https://www.gizmochina.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/04/le-pro-3-ai-8.jpg But they couldn't copy of Meizu 16s' , symmetrical notchless small bezels. https://cdn57.androidauthority.net/wp-content/uploads/2019/04/Meizu-16s-front-display.jpg IMO they need a new design team ASAP.

No notch. No punch hole. This is my next phone.

Seriously, how hard is it to design a decent phone? And with all their billions Google couldn't hire a couple decent designers? What the hell is this?

No notch which is a plus. But no headphone jack which is a big negative for me.

I like it better than the Pixel 3XL, which is something I guess.

What is the screen to body ratio again? 50%? Lmfao, I'll stick with the OnePlus 7 Pro. *barf*

I like it. I don’t mind some bezel, and to be honest, the “notch” (Sorry, Leo) on my iPhone X screen has become a bit of an annoyance after a year or so of using it.

Pulling a Nexus 6 on the front, and a "why in the sam hell" on the back. Seriously, the Pixel 3A and 3A XL have perfected the third generations design, spend more for a dumber design, Christ on a cracker.

I like it! No notch, no cutout of any type and NO CURVED SCREEN . Bring it on!

It's clean and elegant, very much made by Google. Remember "wait until you see what it can do"!

Bezels are better than notches. I don't get the obsession with bezeless displays. As long as the camera whoops the battery life and ram are there this will be the upgrade from Pixel 2

I like it. I hate curved screens, and can't understand the obsession with bezeless displays. Would much prefer a bit of top bezel than a notch or cut-outs, particularly if that space is used for something worthwhile. A headphone jack would be nice, but I suspect those days are fast disappearing, which at least might mean better plug-in USB C headphones. I'm hoping that somehow they'll retain the front facing speakers, but that's looking unlikely. The mooted camera improvements are looking good, too (better colour processing and display, second lens, etc.).

I love Pixel devices. Currently using Google Pixel first generation. I like this new Pixel 4 design. Best things for Pixel phone is it's awesome camera and latest update OS. I will definitely buy this Pixel 4 or Pixel 4 XL.

Same here. Ive gone through half the year...... i haven't liked any phones so far.... I could do samsung hardware.... but that forced Bixby makes me cringe... Asus's latest Zenphone was a contender, but its too fat, and im not sure the camera will be up to scratch.... If pixel 4 has THAT Forehead.... then...Im going to have to go One plus 7... NOT THE PRO, because its too Large of a phone for me... i hope one plus update the 7 as vigorously as they are updating the 7 pro
