Mobile Photography – Google Pixel 2 review: Sets new record for overall smartphone camera quality

Share

TheAppWhisperer has as intense association with DxOMark (the world’s most trusted and comprehensive database of objective image-quality test results for camera sensors, lenses, and mobile phones) and they have just published their latest test results on the Google Pixel 2 smartphone. David Cardinal the editor for this article explains that the Google Pixel 2 has achieved an overall DxOMark Mobile score of 98 points, the Pixel 2 becomes the new leader for smartphone image quality.

“The Google Pixel 2 is the top-performing mobile device camera we’ve tested, delivering class-leading smartphone image quality in nearly every category. The Pixel 2 score of 99 for still photos is just a single point behind the front-runner, and its impressive video score — at 96, the highest ever for a smartphone — lifts its Overall DxOMark score by 4 points over the previous best of 94, held jointly by the Apple iPhone 8 Plus and the Samsung Galaxy Note 8.

In the Photo category, the Pixel 2 gets very high marks for Exposure (95), Autofocus (98), Flash (88), and Color (86). While its scores in our new test categories for Zoom (32) and Bokeh (45) don’t beat out the best of the dual-camera phone designs, they are nonetheless impressive scores for a single-camera phone. All in all, the Google Pixel 2 is an amazing smartphone camera for serious photographers and videographers alike”.
