In addition to testing the mobile in our , where we have analyzed quickly the performance and the design of the mobile, as well as its great news, we have also been able to spend some time to thoroughly test the Google Pixel 3 XL camera . Are we looking at the mobile with the best camera of the year ?
The was the terminal that showed that if camera hardware and software do their job well, it is not necessary to mount a double sensor on the back of the mobile phones that are coming to market these years. So there was so much desire to test the evolution of that camera that reaches the in the form of a sensor of 12.2 Mpx with aperture f / 1.8 , optical stabilizer and capable of recording video in 4K. But more interesting than its technical characteristics, are the novelties that the mobile software brings in the photographic field.
Examples of photos taken with the Google Pixel 3 XL
More difficult we could not put it. The tests carried out on the camera of the Google Pixel 3 XL have been in very adverse conditions because after the presentation of the mobile phone in London, the night has taken over the British street. For this reason we have been able to see how the smartphone behaves in the middle of the night and with artificial lighting sources around it, where the Night Sight mode of the camera software allows to obtain much better performance in low light
There is no doubt that the images captured with this mode overflow quality on all 4 sides, reaching the Google Pixel 2 Xl and surpassing it. As shown, these two photographs.
The portrait mode is another one that takes advantage of the Machine Learning of Android 9 Pie . The double frontal camera, equipped with 8 mpx sensors, generates one of the best cuts of the subject with respect to the background that we have found in the high range, although the problem of the “unreal” feeling in some edges is still present. This double front camera also allows to make group “Super Selfies” thanks to the configuration of its lenses: a wide angle of up to 107º (19mm lens) and a telephoto lens with 75º (28mm lens).
Another feature that has caught the attention of the camera of Google Pixel 3 XL is “Top Shot, which allows you to take pictures before and after pressing the shutter button thanks to automatic learning in order to get the best possible capture . It seems that this possibility still needs some other update to be perfect, because in some other shot blurred or poorly focused photographs were generated. However, in the following gallery you can check for yourself what the mobile camera is capable of in adverse light situations.
As we have reduced the quality of the photographs so that you do not have any problems loading our website, you can see all the images captured with the Google Pixel 3 XL camera , in its original quality, on this album . In the next few days we will publish the complete analysis of the mobile phone and we will be able to squeeze the phone camera in a greater variety of situations.
