There are no accidents...

It's hilarious that many other phones with ported Gcam produces substantially better photos than any Pixels that Google has released so far because of their larger sensor area.

Also, if you're using a massive 1/1.1 inch sensor for the main camera, the bump will become so large that you can probably fit a larger sensor than 1/2 inch for the periscope camera without increasing its thickness even further.

You mean like going with Quad Bayer? While that would work nicely with Google's stacking algorithms, Google has been making it very clear in a last couple of years that they want to stick to inferiour hardware to prove how great their software image processing is (which is a really stupid move IMO).

TheLastOracle, 24 Apr 2021Please stop the shrill chinese propaganda. Like, immediately. So if you compare Pixel to Chinese phones in camera performance and say the latter(s) are overall superiour, it'll be a Chinese propaganda? Please stop this kind of political BS, like immediately.

Anonymous, 24 Apr 2021Loool I think you never seen a google pixel in your life I've seen hundreds of samples already, including those from a few Pixel owners around me.. so I know what I'm talking about.

Mi 11 ultra's camera is s#it compared to this imo, heck Mi 11U is worse that S21U

Anonymous, 24 Apr 2021No? Galaxy A52 5G has SD750. It costs more than $400.... moreIn Europe the price has fallen greatly. 400$ is too much. Poco F3 and Redmi 10 series has put a lot of pressure on Samsung.
Initially 400$ was there 4g variant.

they accidentally put 765G instead of 780...

ithehappy, 24 Apr 2021Still the best HDR algorithm. Takes pants off of everyone e... moreIt is far from the best. It lacks dynamic range. At extreme conditions, highlights are blown out, while shadows are crushed. Sgadlws especially are super noisy. Hdr+ takes a long time to shoot at night. Night sight takes 5 - 6 seconds, which even huawei could do at auto mod3 at only 1/4 seconds. Night mode is an bad move by Googlle and Apple. It totally destroys thebuser experience.

Why there are so many Sony hater in the pixel section. They seriously need some iphone to keep them out from gsmarena.🤣

[deleted post]All they do is bash Sony but if the company ever left the smartphone market you'll see them crying just like they did when LG left. Complete hypocrisy lol.
