Whether it’s Pixel 4 or Pixel 4 XL, a lot of users are complaining about the poor battery performance on these latest Google devices. So, if you’re looking forward to boosting the battery life of your Pixel 4 smartphones, here are a few things that might help:
Switch to Battery Saver mode to limit the background activities. Head on to Settings> Battery> Battery Saver to enable this option.

Disable Location services and avoid keeping it turned on all the time. Head on to Settings> Apps & notifications > Advanced > Permission manager. Here you will see a list of all installed applications. Manage this list and grant/revoke location permissions of all the apps which you don’t use frequently.
Face Lock Issues
Another most common Google Pixel 4 issues that we’ve heard is related to Face unlocking. A few users have complained that they are able to unlock their device via Face Lock, even with their eyes closed. Google is aware of this issue, and they are planning to fix it soon. Until then we would recommend you switch to PIN lock to keep your device secured in the meantime. Head on to Settings> Security and set up a numeric code to lock your device rather than relying on the Face lock feature.
Motion Sense Not Working
Motion Sense Gestures are one of the prime highlights of Pixel 4, but unfortunately, it is not working most of the time. Well, for those of you who are not aware, Motion Sense is a new technology introduced by Google that allows you to control your phone by making gestures, and waving your hand.

To enable this feature, go to Settings> System> Motion Sense and make sure it’s toggled ON.
Well, you will be amazed to know that Motion Sense feature is only supposed to work in a few countries (yet) as announced by Google. The list of countries where Motion Sense feature is supported includes the US, Canada, Singapore, Australia and a bunch of other European regions.
