The still fairly new Google Pixel 4 continues to raise questions a few days after its introduction. Why, for example, is there no model with a 5G radio, although more and more manufacturers are getting on this train? And how secure is the now integrated Face Unlock, which should completely replace the fingerprint sensor. There are answers from Google that we don’t want to hide from you.

Why is there no Google Pixel 4 5G?

You do not want to participate in new technologies in Google or what is happening? In any case, the first response from the group’s spokesmen is plausible. 5G is here today, but it’s not worth it for end customers. There are too few places with 5G networks to seriously benefit from it. Also, the technology is not good enough, 5G currently still requires too much power and electricity. In conclusion, “We are closely monitoring the problem and will bring out a phone when we consider that it is a good time for users, but now is not the time.”

Why is Face Unlock not safe on Google Pixel 4?

Google is introducing completely new interfaces with Android 10 and Pixel 4. Until now, Google has only accepted fingerprint sensors as biometric features for the Android software security procedure, but now the user’s face can also be used. On the Pixel 4 so far, however, with very few security precautions, because Face Unlock on Google’s new smartphone currently even works with your eyes closed.

So that you can steal a sleeping person’s smartphone and quickly unlock it. It is not exactly what one would expect from a security procedure of this type. Google even confirmed that it was intentional. At the same time, a statement was made to want to constantly improve Face Unlock. I bet there will be an update soon to answer the criticism.
