It’s no longer news that Apple has released a new line of phones called the iPhone Xr, iPhone Xs and iPhone Xs Plus. Today, we are going to see who’s the King of camera between the iphone Xs and the Google Pixel 2, which has been around for about a year now.
With iPhone XS phones out in the wild now, a common refrain among
reviewers and observers alike is that the Google Pixel 2 still takes
consistently better-looking photos than Apple’s new latest $1000
Though our instinct is always to compare the latest iPhone against the
best tech available, there’s a fair argument to be made that Apple
operates within its own, rather enormous bubble and isn’t affected much
by what’s going on outside of it. That’s how Apple can introduce
features we’ve seen on Android phones for years — like the
depth-of-field adjustment slider in the new iPhone XS and XR camera
system, which was already available for a year on Samsung’s Galaxy Note —
and have most of its user base react as if they’re a wholly new
invention. Indeed, in the first handful of camera comparisons we’ve done with the
two phones (a Pixel 2 XL and iPhone XS Max, in particular), the Pixel
continues to flex its software-driven camera capabilities even as Apple
touted its new “SmartHDR” camera processing on the latest iPhone. Most
of us know the Pixel 2 takes deep, colorful photos with a really good
feel for the proper exposure, and you can see in these side-by-side
shots the area where it still shines against the iPhone XS’ 12MP f/1.8
Of course, a lot of the differences are going to be subjective, and
that’s fine. The Pixel 2 and the iPhone XS both pack incredible cameras –
there’s simply no argument there. However, it’s becoming ever more
clear that Apple is still playing catch up to Google in this category.
The company’s latest and greatest phones still don’t beat out Google’s
Now, we’re quickly approaching the release of the Pixel 3 and Pixel 3
XL. We already know that Google isn’t adding another sensor,and just a little improvement in their flagship Pixel 2’s camera would make even the iPhone Xs far behind.
