Google Release Pixel Pics/Vids Backing Up Greatest Smartphone Camera Claim

The announcement last week of Googles Pixel phone only served to increase the hype around the highly-anticipated device. More than anything else it was Googles claim that the phone possessed the greatest smartphone camera currently available on the market that generated such high levels of excitement.

The validity of this statement was essentially backed up solely by a rating of 89 bestowed upon the Pixel by DxOMark; the highest score ever given to a smartphone by the site. However, numbers really mean nothing without seeing the camera in action.

Now, Google has already released a selection of images demonstrating how the Pixel stacks up against other mobile shooters, and the results seem impressive.

These images were shared in a Google Photos album entitled #Nofilter needed with your new Pixel by the Pixels camera lead Isaac Reynolds. If youre thinking these pretty pics are the result of chicanery, such as using another camera, youd be wrong. The EXIF data shows that these images were indeed taken on a Pixel and Pixel XL. However, analysis does show that a handful of the images were edited using apps like VSCO and Snapseed, making the #nofilter claim a little dubious.

The other recent release showcasing the cameras talents in the real world comes from Youtube user Ron8it, who has posted two 4K sample videos from the Pixels camera. One is an outdoor exploration experimenting with in-phone slo-mo and timelapse tools, while the other showcases the Pixels ability to handle shooting in low light. The vid descriptions thanks Google for the opportunity to use the Pixel meaning that Ron8it was apparently given an early build to test.

Rating the footage, Ron8it freely admits that he did use some DIY filters for effect in some shots but frankly, its obvious that the Pixel captures 4K divinely. Its crisp, clear and vibrant. Only some minor noise is visible within this low light challenge video but at a much lower rate than wed anticipate.

We will only be able to totally vindicate Googles opinion of their new toy when we get our hands on a Pixel ourselves. In the meantime however we are happy to say that this bodes very well for Android users looking for a high performance cam in their next mobile purchase.

6 things we want to see in the Google Pixel 2 It was true a year ago and it's still true now: the Google Pixel and Pixel XL offer one of the best smartphone cameras on the market.
