New Google Pixel Phones Have Two Front Facing Cameras
The rear camera is almost the same as no big differences are made in rear camera in terms of hardware because the advancements came in software trickery. On the other hand, at the front side google has added extra front facing camera for better selfies.
That extra camera is 8MB wide angle lens with a 97 degree field of the view as compared to the 75 degree field of view for normal portrait camera. Now you can fit more people in shots which is the main benefit of extra front facing camera by keeping the natural portrait mode for the selfies.
Newly Added Night Shots Mode
Google has added 3 new camera modes in new pixel phones and the most interesting one is Nightshift and other two are Top Shot, which takes a burst of HDR photos before you hit shutter button and picks best images and the other one is to reduce the Camera Blur in case of when camera is moving a lot.
The Nightshift mode is designed to improve photo quality taken in low light. It uses an algorithm to readjust the light settings. Google Pixel 2 took good low light photos .But Huawei P20 Pro usurped it by it’s extra AI Powered long exposure mode. Now it’s interesting to see how Google’s new modes perform as to Huawei’s.
Big Battery on Pixel 3 But Not on Pixel 3 XL
