The iPhone 11 is Apple’s most affordable new smartphone this year. The device shares a similar build to 2018’s iPhone XR but boasts souped-up internals, a slightly larger battery and a second camera on its rear that grants it an ultra wide perspective.

In contrast, the Pixel 4 XL is the best of the best from Google this year. The phone is exactly the same as the regular Pixel 4 but has a larger (and higher resolution) screen and battery.

The price difference between the two devices is notable. Apple’s iPhone 11 starts at £729 for 64GB of storage while the Pixel 4 XL comes in at £829 for the same amount of memory.

But it seems the higher price doesn’t necessarily mean better performance… or battery life for that matter.

PhoneBuff recently pitted the iPhone 11 against the Pixel 4 XL in an exhaustive battery life test. The YouTube channel is renowned for leveraging robotic arms that can speedily whisk across a device’s operating system.

The excruciating test forced both phones to open apps such as YouTube, Google Maps and games for set periods of time to see which phone’s battery caved in first.

After a total of 23 hours and 43 minutes, the Pixel 4 XL shut down first. It’s worth noting this tally equated to seven hours and 43 minutes of screen-on time and 16 hours of standby time.

Apple’s cheaper iPhone 11 lasted a further hour before its screen turned black. All in all, the device lasted 24 hours and 43 minutes, which included eight hours and 43 minutes of screen-on time and the same 16 hours of standby time.

Worse still for Google, this isn’t the first test conducted by PhoneBuff that has seen the Pixel 4 XL defeated at the hands of Apple.

At the start of this month the YouTube channel pitted the iPhone 11 Pro Max (that has exactly the same internals as the regular iPhone 11) with the Pixel 4 XL. PhoneBuff’s speed tests work a little different to its battery comparisons – here each phone is tasked with opening a series of apps, after each programme has loaded up the device is then forced to open each one again.

This not only tests the pure speed of each phone, but it also analyses its RAM management, too.

Despite its nippy Snapdragon 855 processor and higher amount of RAM, the Pixel 4 XL was left panting behind the iPhone. Apple’s device completed the test in 2:39 while Google’s flagship crossed the finish line in 3:16.

PhoneBuff’s test showed the iPhone 11 Pro Max to outperform the Pixel 4 XL not only in terms of pure speed, but RAM management, too.

It’s worth noting that, on paper at least, the Pixel 4 should outperform the iPhone where RAM management is concerned, simply because the device has 6GB while the Pro Max has 4GB. However, PhoneBuff’s test has shown this simply isn’t the case.
