Using the Pixel camera, hidden Google Docs features, and more
By Paolo Amoroso • Issue #31 • View online
I got a Pixel 4 XL. It was one of the last units in stock in my country as Google had just discontinued the device and pulled it from the US Google Store.
Why did I get it now?
I don’t mind the Pixel 4 XL features others criticize. Also, most of the latest and planned Google flagships come with screen notches or holes I’m no fan of. The rumors suggest the next phone, the Pixel 5, will have a hole, too. Google won’t distribute it anyway in my country, Italy.
But the main reason I got the Pixel 4 XL is the camera. I want to use it with Astrophotography mode, especially with the optical zoom. The article linked in this issue is a refresher of how to use the Pixel camera.
