Posted by

This year, Google broke convention with its flagship phone by scrapping the old Nexus brand and calling it something new: Pixel. And while previous Nexus phones had decent cameras, Google says this Pixel has the best camera ever on a phone.Google says its newest phone has the best camera on a phone, ever. Can it beat the iPhone 7 Plus?. Now it’s a battle of cameras for Google Pixel XL Vs iPhone 7 Plus.

But Google isn’t the only phone maker hyper-focused on photography this year. Apple’s new iPhone 7 Plus included, for the first time, a dual-camera system with optical zoom and a game-changing portrait mode.

The first thing you might notice in this comparison is that the crop on the iPhone is significantly smaller than the Pixel. That’s because the Pixel has a slightly wider-angle lens than the iPhone, which means shots look as if they were taken from farther away on Google’s phone despite having been taken from the exact same position.

The wider lens on the Pixel makes the shot appear farther away than on the iPhone.

The winner

Let’s get one thing out of the way: Both phones have — you might say are — impressive cameras.

If you tend to shoot portraits and that’s what matters to you most, the iPhone 7 Plus is an obvious choice. Portrait mode is dSLR-esque, and we only expect it to improve by the time it gets a public release.

But if brighter colors, sharper detail throughout the backgrounds of photos and capable low-light photography is more important, it’s the Pixel. I have to admit, I initially thought Google over-promised on its new flagship — especially after those disappointing Nexus cameras — but I was wrong. It’s a new chapter for Google phones and this one earned its name.
