For the longest time ever, Apple iPhones have been the defacto king of smartphone cameras. Their control and perfect optimization of their software and hardware delivered high levels of camera output even when Android based rivals piled up megapixels and ultrapixels.
Testament to their success is the full fledged growth of iPhone camera accessory industry with lenses, jibs, stands, dollies and more being created for the iPhone. Another mark of success was the high number of professional videos shot on the Apple iPhone. So much so that many film festivals started a new category for this.
Since Google threw its hat into the ring with the Pixel, one of the key features they highlighted was the powerful camera. With the highest ever DXOmark rating of 89, the Pixel looks like it can give the iPhone a run for its money. Can it?
