Google Pixel 2 ranks 1st in DxOMark’s smartphone camera test
Seems like the iPhone 8 Plus and the Samsung Galaxy Note8 quickly lose the spotlight as the newly-released Google Pixel 2 got an overall score of 98 in DxOMARK’s camera test.
In a test summary from DxOMark, the Pixel 2 got a score of 99 in its photo performance test and 96 in its video performance test, making it 5 points over the original Pixel. Some of its pros in camera performance are: wide dynamic range in all lighting conditions, excellent autofocus, very good white balance both outdoors and indoors, and good detail preservation. However, it falls short on flare, flickering, and grid patterns can occur in some lighting conditions, medium- and long-range zooms have some loss of detail, and portrait mode sometimes causes visible artifacts.
Video-wise, some of its pros are: very good video stabilization, fast and accurate autofocus with good subject tracking, good detail preservation indoors and outdoors, and good noise reduction. On the other hand, its cons include: white balance and exposure can be unstable when walking or panning, rotational frame drift in some hand-held videos, and limited dynamic range.
