Google Pixel 3 vs iPhone XS vs Galaxy Note 9 vs LG V40: our first camera samples
Google finally took the wraps off the Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL yesterday. Granted, both phones had already leaked to absolute exhaustion, but it was a good feeling to finally see them for ourselves.
As was the case with the previous two generations of Pixel phones, Google took it upon themselves to make the camera one of the most important and advanced features of the Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL. This was done not only through optics and improved hardware alone, but thanks to Google's AI-enabled software as well. With many different tricks, such as Top Shot, Super Res Zoom, and Night Sight, all of which enhance your photos through software alone, the third generation of Pixel phones has a strong camera game. But how good are the new Pixels when compared to the other top cameras out on the market? That's a question that we'll have to wait a bit longer to answer, but what we can do right now is show you some of our first camera samples with Google's newest Android flagships!
