How Good Is Pixel’s ‘Best Smartphone Camera Ever?’
This Oct. 4, Google unveiled its new flagship smartphones, the Pixel and Pixel XL. Google even took a serious stance on creating new hardware. With Pixel, Google focused on creating the camera. But how does it compare with other flagships like the iPhone 7 Plus and Galaxy Note 7? DxOmark might have suggested Pixel's camera as the best one ever with a score of 89. But the only question is this: is the Pixel's camera really the best?
An impressive camera offering
The new Pixel has a rear camera with an impressive 12.3 megapixel. This is impressive because it's as close as a dedicated compact camera that provides sharp images with color accuracy at its best. Google also equipped Pixel's camera with large sensors and the megapixel count allows consumers to take pictures with a pixel size as small as 1.55-micron pixel. What this translates to is that the Pixel works well even in low light conditions.
Google also considered the video capability of Pixel. Instead of just HD video displays, the company made the Pixel capable of capturing 1080p videos with a 4K quality set at 30 frames per second.
Capturing moving subjects is no longer a problem
More than that, Pixel's camera has the shortest capture time among Google's smartphone. Action shots can be taken without shutter lag and this allows the HDR function to always stay on. With this feature, consumers can enjoy better shots even if the daylight scene is overly bright or there are too many dark shadows on the image.
Google explains that Pixel's camera processes its captured images to improve dynamic range, eliminate blur and align pixels. This is made possible with a 4GB of RAM and a Snapdragon 821 processor that allows the camera to process images twice as fast than the company's previous flagships.
In comparison, Pixel may not have the telephoto lens and depth-of-field that iPhone 7 Plus phones have, but its camera has better optics and is faster at capturing even moving subjects.
