Apple has long been regarded to have the best mobile phone cameras. In fact, four out of five cameras used on popular image hosting site Flickr are iPhones. That’s the kind of cult status iPhone cameras currently have.
Best Premium Smartphone, Android king, and the best camera ever on Smartphone: Google Pixel is getting all sorts of testimonial. Samsung doesn’t really have a new flagship for the rest of 2016. And the iPhone 7 doesn’t look much an upgrade, except for maybe the matte black color option which is gorgeous.
Google, meanwhile, named its phone Pixel for nothing. The company boasts of its handset’s camera and rightfully so. It’s the Pixel’s major selling point to one of its biggest targets: photographers.
The main shooter of the iPhone 7 is a 12 MP camera with a f/1.8 aperture. It has phase detection autofocus and quad-LED flash. The iPhone 7’s lens absorbs 60 percent more light compared to that of its predecessor, the iPhone 6s.
The camera of Apple’s latest Smartphone also has optical image stabilization (OIS), which is great at managing shaky hands and bumps to create steady shots. The iPhone 7 has 4K video and 8 MP image recording support along with face/smile detection, touch focus, and HDR. Its secondary camera is a 7 MP f/2.2 selfie shooter that is able to produce 720p videos at 240 FPS and 1080p videos at 30 FPS.
The Google Pixel equips a 12.3 MP primary camera with a f/2.0 aperture. It has electronic image stabilization (EIS), dual-LED flash, phase detection, and laser autofocus. While the iPhone 7 is excellent at low-light photography, the Pixel is slightly better at it.
The Pixel’s wider lens takes in a little more light than the iPhone 7’s. Shots taken in low-light are better with the Pixel. The Google flagship retains visible details even when the resulting images are zoomed in.
