Where many other companies are focused on releasing Android phones with the biggest and most impressive-sounding specs, Google has carved out a niche showing how to use software to make the hardware more useful. In many ways, the Pixel 4 was the first phone to offer a number of features you couldn't get anywhere else at the time. And the phone has continued to deliver a great experience, even though it was released almost two years ago . So when it showed up on Woot for $380 unlocked in "Just Black," I thought it was still worth recommending. 

One of Lynn La's biggest complaints about the Pixel 4 in her review was its price. A great camera isn't the same thing as a truly great phone, and while the Pixel 4 absolutely has a stellar camera, it was difficult to justify spending upward of $800 on it. For $400, however, having the first phone to really nail astrophotography and continue to be one of the best phone cameras to handle low light is a pretty great start to an inexpensive phone.

Yes, the Pixel 5A and Pixel 6 are rumored to be coming soon (October or earlier, if Google follows its usual timeline). But Google says the Pixel 4 will be supported with Android version and security updates until at least October 2022, so it's good for more than a year. If you find yourself in need of an upgrade, there's no time like the present.
