The Pixel 4 might be even more powerful than the Galaxy Note 10 and other 2019 Android flagships

The Pixel 4 might be even more powerful than the Galaxy Note 10 and other 2019 Android flagships Each year brings us faster and faster phones, with Apple's newest iPhone leading the charge. The most recent A-series chip is always faster than whatever processors Qualcomm, Samsung, and Huawei manufacture for their latest Android flagships. 

We pit the Pixel 3 a XL against some of the popular phones in this price range and see how well it performs. We compared the smartphones in Samsung Galaxy S 10 e with Exynos 9820 (8nm) coupled with 6GB RAM and 128GB storage. OnePlus 6 T powered by Snapdragon 845 paired with

Both phones have 3,700mAh batteries with fast charging support, but Dash charge in the OnePlus 6 T is slightly faster at 20W compared to 18W for the A Samsung Galaxy Note 10 and Note 10 Plus promotional video -- seen by almost 3 million people -- claimed the new phones have stainless steel

Recently, I reviewed the Motorola Moto Z4 which sells for $499 unlocked. It's part mid-range phone, part modular monster and, with the addition of a $349 mod, part gateway drug for Verizon's fun-sized 5G network. The reason it's difficult to recommend the Moto Z4 to anyone other than budget-minded 5G early-adopters or people up to their ears in Moto Mods is that there are a number of solid phones from other companies that cost around the same price. If you have a budget of around $500, boy oh boy, do you have some great phone options in 2019.

The Moto Z4 costs $500 but its biggest problem is all of the other phones that you can get for that price.

Galaxy Note 10 reservation lets you save up to $600 on the pricey new flagship The Galaxy Note 10 launch is less than two weeks away, with Samsung expected to kick off preorders soon after the press conference is over. 

The new Pixel phones don't get the Pixel 3 ' s Snapdragon 845 processor, which is also found in the OnePlus 6 T . Instead they have a Snapdragon 670 processor, which offers better performance than the Snapdragon 632 found in the Moto G7. However, we found the older Snapdragon 845 more powerful

You’ve got a strict $ 500 to spend and you’re looking for the best Android smartphone you can get. Two phones that simply must be on your radar are the Moto Z 4 and the Google Pixel 3 a XL , but which one should you buy? Let’ s take a look at what makes these phones special, where they falter, and how

For starters, there's the $449 OnePlus 6T and the $479 Google Pixel 3A XL, the latter of which has one of the best cameras on any phone you can currently buy. Then there's last year's Moto Z3 which Motorola still sells for $480. But perhaps one of the most jaw-dropping alternatives is the Samsung Galaxy S10E which can be bought through Verizon, AT&T, B&H Photo and Video for $550 or on Amazon for $520.

Here is how the Moto Z4 stacks up against the Galaxy S10E, Pixel 3A XL , OnePlus 6T and Moto Z3. For even more phone options under $500 check out our story Best phones under $500.

A flagship phone for the cost of a mid-range one

The Moto Z4 and Galaxy S10E are two very different phones that for some twist of fate cost nearly the same - at least for the time being. The Galaxy S10E is essentially a scaled down Galaxy S10 and includes a Snapdragon 855 processor, one of the best camera systems and wireless charging that can also be used to charge accessories like wireless earbuds or a smartwatch. At its original price of $750, the Galaxy S10E was an incredible deal, even more so if you can snag one for $520.

Galaxy Note 10 has a huge advantage over other Android flagships, and you might not even realize it

Galaxy Note 10 has a huge advantage over other Android flagships, and you might not even realize it Samsung unveiled the Galaxy Note 10 last week, and the phone is exactly what we thought it would be. We’re looking at a brand new design for the Note series, and it's certainly the best one to date. We’ve got upgraded internal components inside the phone as well, and most specs are on par with what’s available from the competition. However, the Note 10 does have a considerable advantage over other Android flagships, and it's one that might not

At $500, the Moto Z4 lacks wireless charging and has a modest processor compared to the Galaxy S10E. On the other hand the Moto Z4 lasted 2 hours and 21 minutes longer in our looped video tests in airplane mode, has a larger screen and can be modded into a 5G phone with the addition of a 5G Moto Mod. Also, Motorola's friendly and easy-to-use software on the Z4 is a delight. The near-stock take on Android is honestly one of favorite versions of the operating system out there.

All that said, the Galaxy S10E for $520 is an absolute bonkers deal for what you get and I think would be a better fit for most people than the Moto Z4.

Google's budget wonder changed the affordable phone game

Google ruined budget phones for us when it released the Pixel 3A and 3A XL. The biggest reason is that the affordable phones have the same camera found in the Pixel 4 which is one of the best you can buy. Most other budget phones, including my favorite the Moto G7, have decent cameras for the price, but with the Pixel 3A rocking the one from its older brother, it's hard not to take notice.

OnePlus 7T Pro’s launch date might’ve just been revealed

OnePlus 7T Pro’s launch date might’ve just been revealed Announced just a few days ago, the Galaxy Note 10 isn't the only exciting flagship smartphone set to debut in the second half of 2019. The iPhone 11 will drop in mid-September, with the Huawei Mate 30 Pro also rumored to be unveiled during the same month. Google should launch the Pixel 4 series sometime in October, and a new leak tells us the next-generation OnePlus flagship might be set for a mid-October debut as well. A leak a few days ago

The Pixel 3A costs $399 and the larger Pixel 3A XL, which seems more in-line size wise with the Moto Z4, costs $479. Both Pixels run stock Android and Google has promised a minimum of 3 years of software updates for the phones.

The Moto Z4 has a nice screen that's also larger: 6.4-inches compared to the Pixel 3A XL's 6-inch one. The Z4 lasted over 2 hours longer than the Pixel in our battery tests, despite having a lower-capacity battery. And the build quality of the Z4 feels much more premium than the plastic body of the Pixel 3A and 3A XL.

If you're a camera nerd, the Pixel 3A and 3A XL is the way to go, but if you want a bigger screen and longer battery life the Moto Z4 is worth considering.

Last year's flagship for less

Though it launched in November 2018, the OnePlus 6T still offers more flagship appeal than the Moto Z4. It has a better design, build, display, cameras and faster performance. And if Motorola's software take on Android is my favorite, OnePlus ' OxygenOS with its elegant and simple UI is my second favorite.

You won’t believe how fast the Galaxy Note 10 charges

You won’t believe how fast the Galaxy Note 10 charges Samsung’s 2019 flagships finally offer faster battery charging speeds than ever, with the Galaxy S10 5G reaching 25W speeds, and all the Galaxy Note 10 phones shipping with 25W chargers. The Note 10+ handsets, meanwhile, support 45W chargers, but you have to purchase them separately. However, it turns out that you don’t necessarily need that 45W brick, as the 25W default charger is able to outperform OnePlus’s 30W charger. YouTube channel

The S 10 e has a small 3,100 mAh battery pack owing to its smaller size. Thankfully, all three phones have fast charging capabilities, with OnePlus ’ Dash Charge being the fastest. The Google Pixel 3 a XL is priced at INR 44,999 while the Samsung Galaxy S 10 e will set you back around INR 55,900 but

However the Moto Z4's battery lasted 2 hours and 18 minutes longer than the OnePlus in our tests. And the Moto Z4 is 9 months newer than the 6T.

If you have $50 more to spend in your budget the OnePlus 6T is the way to go. Unless you want to be on Verizon, then the Moto Z4 is the better option.

5G 'budget' phones

Currently Motorola sells the Moto Z4 for $500 and the Moto Z3 for $480, which has a Snapdragon 835 processor and can also use the 5G Moto Mod. The Moto Z4 has a much longer battery life, comes with twice the storage and newer cameras on the front and back.

Aside from the processor, the Moto Z4 seems like a better phone especially its monster battery which lasted 5 hours longer in our looped video tests in airplane mode than the Moto Z3.

Both phones are able to be used on Verizon's 5G network via a $349 mod. Though I myself didn't test the Moto Z4's 5G connectivity with the 5G Moto Mod, my colleague Jessica Dolcourt got to test a Moto Z3 with the 5G mod this spring. She describes the experience as "kludgy at best." Her biggest issue with the Moto Z3 and 5G mod setup was the horrible battery life.

If you want to get one of these phones to use with the 5G mod, grab the Moto Z4 since it offers a bigger battery. Otherwise, the Moto Z3 is compelling if you're into more graphics heavy tasks like gaming, editing photos and recording video.
