Now I understand why many OEMs use 12MP.
Photos are smaller and then they do not allow you to crop that much.
So it will never look bad.
16, 19, 20 or 23 will, no matter quality. If you crop more than 100%.
But you if look on a big screen, higher res photos will look better.
I take photos from S6 over S7/S8

Anonymous, 17 Oct 2017I don’t understand the comments about the price... there Are cheap Android phones and expensiv... morewell heres the thing. you can get a S8 with way more tech in it except for google's proprietary HDR algorithms .. for less money.
if they priced this "like everyone elses not having actual best-in-class *hardware* for everything", ie 100USD less, it'd be fine (and still more expensive than the nexus line btw)
but at that price.. like.. i'm picking up an S8, or an Xperia (cheaper!)
AnonD-305089, 17 Oct 2017a 50$ phone wrapped up as a $700 phone. Why would I buy a phone with an OS that powers $30 and... moreI don’t understand the comments about the price... there Are cheap Android phones and expensive Android phones. Everybody can chose!
Old Nexus phones were too cheap. The Google did not make Profit with them and that angered Android phone makers who did try to make Profit. This new system is much better! Google makes new expensive halo/prototype phones and Main phone makers make phones to normal users.
I hope that Google would make Also middle range phone just for the target to other phone makers, but They can not be too competative or They will anger phone manufacturers again... Samsung was already moving away for. Android but backed of when Google did stop selling too cheap, too good phones.
We need to see HDR+ samples, it s definitely most important feature of Google cameras...
Got a hands on with a black XL yesterday and it is a lovely phone. V similar wow factor that S8 had first fondle. And the Google UX is a lot more aesthetically pleasing these days. Just wish it had wireless charging.
The smaller Pixel looks like an iPhone 5/SE and is pretty dull except in white with the orange power button which looks cool on both models.
Images look worse than Nexus 6p/5x/Pixel. Colors are worse, it's oversharpened, there is more noise, noise reduction looks worse, overused clarity effect and the lens seems to be worse (chromatic aberration, less sharp, hazy in direct light).
[deleted post]Even though your comment feels stupid, It makes me think of the real customers who will buy these phones. The way Google has stopped nexus (affordable flagship) and launched pixel, they want to target consumers like apple (rich and moderate tech savvy) as many smart tech enthusiast won't find this great value for money. So you may not be completely wrong here.
Of all the trollings about pixels, no one will ever believe that these phones are slow.
Google believe in inner beauty. They don't care about how does a phone looks outside, what really matters is the inside. Pixel phones are beautiful and fabulous.. but only inside.
Relative to top dogs of Android phones, Pixel 2 has lethargic performance. Single core score is not even better than SD821. Qualcomm should have just improved SD821 and create SD831 with 4 cores with baseline frequency of 2.2Ghz and burst of 3Ghz. This will surely create SC of at least 2.5K and MC of 7-8K if you are a fan of GB. Create 6 cores and it will easily hit 9-10K in MC.
coming soon 2018 for google pixel 3 R (dual rear camera with 4K display and 256GB)?you can ready buy?
To me photos do not look as sharp as they supposed to look or as they look when taking with LG's. Will look forward to GSM Arena'a compare tool)
Am I the only one who isn’t impressed by the photos? When pixel peeping you can see the sensor isn’t as capable as some of the greatest out there. It feels like Google went all out with software processing, and trying to make mediocre photos look great using processing tricks. I don’t think It should be applauded and I’m very surprised at their dxo rating. I hope it gets a mention in the final review.
[deleted post]Dream on son.... You obviously never used pixel before.

Pixel is a brand they charge money because they use premium quality material like every other top brand and they have to develop android and ofcourse they will also want to make profit for their work
