The year 2018 has been a refinement for flagship smartphones since the beginning. From iPhone X to Samsung Galaxy Note 9, all these powerhouses are revolutionizing the mobile universe. The flagship smartphone train is not stopping anytime soon as there are more smartphones coming to the light. The new models are featuring advanced technologies makes their predecessors run for cover.
The new smartphones are not disrupting the trend of change and transformation. The new features, sleek designs, compatibility and so much more, all new phones have everything in the bag for the users. Today, I will be talking about two names who hold the ‘Excalibur’ to bring change in the world of smartphone photography.
We will be talking about Google’s own hardware babies, Google Pixel 3 and Google Pixel 3 XL.
The Pixel and Pixel 2 were huge advancements in the state of the art for smartphone photography. But if you thought the camera in a smartphone cannot get any better, think about it again! With Pixel 3 and 3 XL, Google has now introduced better photographic flexibility and artistic freedom.
The heirs of Pixel are refining the camera quality of smartphones. We all know that all those Mega Pixels (MP) in smartphones are flawed. They rarely deliver something close to their crunching Mega Pixels. With the new Pixel models, users are able to overcome all the flaws and click better pictures. They are the best Android phones in the market as of now thanks to their impressive camera.
There are so many interesting new hardware and software tweaks in both Google Pixel 3 and Google Pixel 3 XL. Pixel adheres to ‘the look’ which almost every single smartphone dons in today’s world. Apart from the sleek design, here are the factors which makes them the best camera phone in the world.
AI (Automatic Intelligence) is a force to be reckoned with. Most devices are now using the AI brain to enhance the user experience. The Pixel 2 was the first phone to bond with the Pixel Visual Core. This was a Google-designed processor which speeds up the AI task to offer better phone performance.
The Pixel 3/3 XL has the AI booster which makes the portrait mode even more amazing. Apple took care of the portrait mode using dual cameras whereas Pixel was a notch ahead. Pixel 3/3 XL pioneered portrait mode using just one camera. They also support depth information into the JPEG files which helps users edit the depth and focus point.
The power of clicking pictures with camera's raw photo format gave liberty to a generation of digital photography pros and enthusiasts. But Google Pixel 3/3 XL took the revolution to a whole new level. The built-in camera of Pixel 3s locks a lot about the exposure, colour balance, sharpening, noise reduction, and other aspects to make images appear elusive.
The raw phone cameras on the best of mobile phones can capture incredible shots in both murky details of bright highlights. Pixel images also get an image sensor for a dynamic range boost.
The revolutionary Pixel 3 and 3 XL use default HDR+ to deliver images those surpass the dynamic range of other phones. Additionally, it has a feature called ‘Night Sight’ sitting to shoot in the dark. The Night Sight feature feels like someone put HDR+ on steroids. It offers everything a simple HDR+ camera can offer, only better.
Not only this, all further tweaks of technology in Google Pixel 3 and 3 XL makes images free from blur. They also have optical image stabilization and better white balance.
The rear camera is an incredible feature in Google Pixel 3 and 3 XL, but the front camera is not to be overlooked. I feel that the wide-angle front-facing camera should be appreciated extremely. It is not some average front-facing camera and offers a much bigger field of view.
In fact, the camera quality so astounding that it can offer stunning shots in any light condition whether sunset, daytime shade, night or fluorescent light bulbs.
Google Pixel phones are known to take the performance and photography to a new graph. But there are some who are not able to take cool shots. It is a matter of understanding how photographs are clicked rather than heavy hardware. If you have a great insight into the world of smartphone photography, Google Pixel 3/3 XL are the best choices for you.
