Moto Z4 (2019) vs Google Pixel 3 / Pixel 3 XL (2018)

Analysis:

We couldn't find enough data on either product to be able to come to any reliable conclusions. We highly recommend that you take a look at some other options in the $460 and $180 budget ranges instead.

While the Moto Z4 (2019) wasn't able to make it to the very top of any roundups from sources that perform quality hands-on testing, it still got featured in a large number of them. PhoneArena, PCmag, Techradar, The Verge, Android Authority, and Android Central have all deemed it worthy of a place on their respective shortlists.

Moving on to the Google Pixel 3 XL (2018): it was well-received by reviewers from numerous sources that perform their own objective hands-on testing, including Techradar, Android Central, Android Authority, MakeUseOf, and Popular Mechanics. It did great in their roundups - it was named "Older but still good" by Techradar, "The best camera and the best software on a smartphone." by Android Central, and "Best big phone with stock Android" by Android Authority. That alone points toward it being worthy of consideration.

We analyzed all of the review data that we could find on these two Smartphones. First, we examined sources that tested and scored both of these products - Lifewire, PCmag, Techradar, Digitaltrends, Android Central, The Verge, and Android Authority favored the Google Pixel 3 XL (2018) over the Moto Z4 (2019), whereas reviewers at PhoneArena haven't shown a preference for either.

Then we took a look at which sources liked them the most - we found that the Moto Z4 (2019) was best received by PhoneArena - it gave it a score of 9, whereas the Google Pixel 3 XL (2018) got its highest score of 10 from reviewers at camerajabber.com.

Lastly, in order to better compare them to the rest of their competition, we averaged out their review scores. The Google Pixel 3 XL (2018) managed to get 8.6 out of 10 - considerably better than the 7.5 review average of Smartphones in general - whereas the Moto Z4 (2019) earned 7.1 points.

It should be said that doing a direct Moto Z4 (2019) vs. Google Pixel 3 XL (2018) comparison might not be entirely fair due to the difference in their prices - some sources don't put much weight on value for money and thus tend to give better review scores to more expensive products.
