DxOMark: Google Pixel 2 has Best Smartphone Camera

Google has pulled the curtain off a whole collection of new gadgets.

No doubt these smartphones are going to sell well, but the big question on our minds, however, is how well they compare among themselves and with the Apple iPhone X.

What about the iPhone X then?

The five-inch Pixel 2 with AMOLED display, priced at $649 and up, and the six-inch Pixel 2 XL with pOLED screen, which starts at $849, are set to begin shipping on October 19, although several reports indicate that early demand has already delayed the expected arrival of the larger device by almost a month.

Now, Google has chose to copy Apple and deliver the Google Home Max, being a smart speaker which promises (surprise) louder and better sound. Something it is plainly greatly quick to do having purchased out HTC's smartphone division for over $1 billion as of late. With the smartphone zeitgeist without a doubt heading towards joule-cameras, this can be seen as fairly astounding. Consequently, the Pixel 2 can create a depth map and allow for shallow depth of field effects in its "Portrait Mode". Called the Google Home Mini - which Google said is smaller than a donut - it is a rounded disk covered in the hottest new technology material: fabric. But the point of this camera is to turn it on by twisting its lens, clip it to something or use the attached clip as a kickstand, and leave Google Clips to do its thing. It should also be noted that the manufacturer is providing a warranty for the device that it refers to as Preferred Care, which retails at a price of $129, and can be bought via the same Google Pixel 2 website. The Pixel 2 XL, on the other hand, is a bit pricey with its $849 price-tag. Whereas in iPhone 8 Plus one of the cameras is a f/2.8 aperture and other is f/1.8 aperture.

Real Men Wear Pink campaign raises money for breast cancer awareness, research
Black women are twice as likely to be diagnosed with triple negative breast cancer , an aggressive form that's harder to treat. Local health officials want to see the mortality rate for breast cancer cut in half in the Tri-Cities over the next decade.

In fact, consumers in the United States who buy Pixel 2 series via Verizon cellular operator should have to wait for four to five weeks at the least. Notwithstanding, the opening of the front camera incorporated into the iPhone 8 Plus is better than the Google Pixel 2, showing that it will tend to take better photos in darker conditions.

If we talk about specifications, both the Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL come with the similar specifications, except in terms of display and battery capacity.

All you need to do is touch and hold the right earbud to activate Google Assistant, which is available on their latest smartphone. For now, it seems that the Pixel 2 sitting pretty on the throne. Samsung's Galaxy Note 8 series is also competing strongly with these two flagship offerings. According to Engadget, "there appeared to be virtually zero lag time during the translation", during Google's demonstration of the new product.

Google has managed to provide a great camera for sure, but what really makes a big leap in the performance of the phone's camera is its artificial intelligence that's giving it a palpable lead over Apple's brilliant camera chops.
