Google claims Pixel 2 has the best camera, just like the first Pixel

by John_A

Google was quick to brag about the original Pixel’s camera prowess last year, and it’s continuing with that confident stance now that the Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL are here. Both phones use the same 12-megapixel rear camera, and have received an unprecedented overall DxOMark test score of 98 — that’s four points higher than the previous leaders, the Galaxy Note 8 and iPhone 8 Plus. If you ask Google, it’s a combination of the hardware with its computational intelligence.

The key for most is that it pairs Google’s existing software-based stabilization with optical stabilization — that should lead to fewer blur-free shots and less noise in low light. Rival phones tend to only use one stabilization method at a time. You can also expect quick autofocus through dual-pixel phase detection, and a portrait mode that creates DSLR-like soft backgrounds using only one camera (whether it’s the back camera or the front 8-megapixel shooter). You don’t need dual cams or a depth sensor here, folks.
