And we usually chose a best of a best: a Huawei P20 Pro, Samsung Galaxy S9, Sony Xperia XZ2, HTC U12+, OnePlus 6, LG G7 ThinQ and Google Pixel 2 with Android, as good as a iPhone X from Apple to be exotic.
On a proceed to a final, a Pixel 2 fended off a HTC U12+, OnePlus 6 and Huawei P20 Pro. In a nail-biting final opposite a iPhone X, a Pixel 2 stable Android’s honor, even when it came to selfies and videos. The Pixel 2 achieved brilliantly! In a conflict between twin smartphones from 2017 that left all a newcomers from 2018 in a dust, Google left no doubt that a Pixel 2 is a smartphone camera champion.

Even more impressive: besides a initial photo, a travel stage in splendid daylight, a Pixel 2 was clearly forward in each other scene, including a selfie and video shots. None of a other categories were unequivocally all that close, that was also reflected in a final result. And this was a box in all 3 of a Pixel 2’s progressing compare ups, where a Pixel 2 prevailed opposite all a competitors by a far-reaching margin.
Yesterday’s hardware with a program of tomorrow
It’s annoying for a competition. The Pixel 2, with a elementary 12MP camera and Sony sensor, swept divided all a twin and triple cameras, a AI cameras, and a non-static apertures. The strength of Google’s camera lies not in worldly or difficult hardware, though in a program behind a camera, definition the “developing of a photos”. No manufacturer gets improved images out of a sensor than Google.
The Pixel 2 doesn’t come with too many camera facilities for professionals. There’s no RAW mode, no veteran mode overloaded with options, no AI support (at slightest that is categorically advertised), this is really conspicuous and a opposite proceed in comparison to a competition. In a end, Google imitates Apple’s recipe for success: there are improved and fewer functions that are generally good and easy to use, instead of perplexing to do everything. Most photos taken on smartphones are taken in involuntary mode and but perplexing to do anything too tricky, and in this realm, a Pixel 2 shines many brightly.
The best finish package
The Google Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL are still a best choices for those who value an easy-to-use camera with glorious results. Of course, there are specialists like a Huawei P20 Pro with mega-zoom or a Galaxy S9 with a hulk aperture. But a Google Pixel 2 is positively a best altogether package.
