Samsung Galaxy S9 vs Pixel 2 Camera Comparison: Superior Hardware Still Cannot Beat Google’s Software
The 12MP rear camera of the Pixel 2 is pure magic. Thanks to Google’s HDR+ algorithm, the phone is able to capture some amazing photos that would not have been possible a year or two ago. And then, there’s the Galaxy S9. After not making any noticeable improvements to the Galaxy S8’s camera, Samsung is back in the game this year with the dual-aperture camera of the Galaxy S9.
With the Galaxy S9, Samsung tried to imitate the iPhone X’s Animoji feature by only using the 8MP autofocus camera on the front of the device. The result was AR Emoji which has not received positive reviews. Samsung has not given up trying though. The company is reportedly working with Israeli startup Mantis Vision and camera module firm Namuga to develop a 3D sensing camera solution for the Galaxy S10.
Yesterday, Xiaomi unveiled another new handset for the Indian market: the Redmi 5. The 5.7-inch handset is not meant to compete with Xiaomi’s own Redmi Note 5 but instead sits a slot below it. Its aimed at people who are looking for a compact smartphone within Rs 8,000.
Last year, Google managed to surprise everyone by introducing a very impressive Portrait mode on the Pixel 2 despite the handset coming with only a single 12MP shooter at its rear. Given that the likes of Apple, Samsung, and Huawei had to use a dual-camera setup for this, Google’s approach was not only unique, the results were surprisingly even better than what some of the phones with a dual-camera setup could capture.
