the titan m chip is the most underrated pixel feature
Absent from reviews of the Pixel 4 is any mention of its most underrated feature- the Titan M chip. Introduced in the Pixel 3, the chip boasts security improvements across the board to the bootloader, lock screen, disk, third party apps, and firmware. Google offers a $1 million bounty reward if you can exploit it, a bounty only matched by Apple. Most Android manufacturers don’t have a bug bounty program at all and Samsung’s max payout tops out at only a fifth of Google’s. Security is fundamental to protecting users’ most intimate data and should always be top of mind when evaluating technology. The zeitgeist ignoring security ramifications is something this publication has discussed with OnePlus, but the fact the Titan M chip isn’t even part of the Pixel 4 conversation is baffling.
