YouTube marques Brownlee considers Google pixel 4 has a worst front face. It has a small chin and a big forehead. Google Pixel 4 claims to have the fastest face unlock on any phone. It does not have a fingerprint sensor which means that the face unlock is only the option to unlock your phone with biometrics. It has a radar sensor in the forehead along with the selfie camera with an infrared sensor. The radar sensors are so that it creates a bubble to see when things enter/exit the bubble.

Whenever anything enters, it starts the infrared and front camera sensors early so by the time you hold it in your hands showing your face and you unlock it quickly. Sometimes it unlocks even when you don’t pay attention to it, even if your eyes are closed it detects your face and unlock your phone. But the sensors can distinguish between face and picture so it doesn’t unlock your pictures. Waving is an added gesture to the phone. You can just wave to snooze an alarm or dismiss a timer. You could even wave to skip the songs, hear the next song through waving at your phone. It can save you time. It also comes with a tutorial showing the waving feature in the settings.
