Google Pixel 2 and iPhone 8 Plus camera comparison

One of the big reasons I got a Pixel 2 this year is because of the camera. I already own an iPhone 8 Plus, which has a truly spectacular camera, but the Pixel 2 is supposed to be no slouch either. Let’s take a look at a few comparison shots I took over my walks around the neighborhood this past week.

Comparing video on the Pixel 2 and the iPhone 8 Plus

I’ve had the chance to do a little outdoor video work with the new Pixel 2 and this phone has a very nice video camera built into it. The crowning achievement is the combination OIS and EIS they have going on, both of which work together to deliver the best stabilized video I think I’ve ever seen on anything handheld. But does it win the video war? Not quite.

How much extra space does the iPhone X’s screen get you?

I’m not going to pretend to be the ultimate authority on this, but I do make an app that benefits from vertical screen real estate so I threw it in the simulator on the iPhone SE, 8, 8 Plus, and X. Here are the results:

If you were wondering what footage looks like from the iPhone 8 Plus’s new camera, below are a few examples I took on a walk around town last week. I did do a little color correction on some of these to make the colors pop a little more, but no other edits have been made.
