Our first camera samples from the Google Nexus 5X and Nexus 6P
We’ve been spending a bit of time over the weekend getting acquainted with the two new Nexus phones, so we’re sharing just a few samples from them to show you what they’re capable of. Of course, there’s never any doubt about samples taken when lighting is ideal and plentiful, but we’re always more concerned about low-light performance, seeing that it’s the bane for most smartphones.
While we won’t detail about the quality of the photos until our review, we will instead say that the stock Google Camera app isn’t for everyone. True, its intent is to offer an instant, quick, and straightforward experience, evident in its lack of shooting modes and manual controls, but it’s going to have a tough time trying to convince those who have been accustomed of being given those features on other high-end phones. Still, there’s always a quick stroll through the Google Play Store that solves the concern. However, we can certainly agree it would be useful to have them on board from the beginning – and without having to download some sort of third party app.
Nevertheless, don’t forget to check out the samples below for yourself to see how each one handles. Maybe you might be won over already?
