Wow, what a disappointment...
Looks like a big phone with a little screen, no headphone jack, recording mono sound of videos, wtf?!
Yes, camera is good, i get that but the old pixels camera was good so what's new?

But it is not a true factual representative of cameras capabilities, only a presentation of how different phone companies pre set their point n shoot camera feature.
Phone camera without proper manual should de facto get negative points for that lacking feature alone.
Cameras are not about point and shoot only, but more about extra features and capabilities that make it better or worse than some other, and so should phone cameras be assesed in same way.
Automode is just a preset-based feature of a camera, not its essence.
Its essence is what range of results it is actually capable to accomplish with its optics, hardware and software alltogether.
Hmm, iPhone X benchmark figures.... Did I miss the iPhone X review?

Most of users don't use manual mode and when it comes to quick snap, you can't go for manual settings, So it's fair to use auto mode.

Only automode tests...everywhere.
And I concure, with manual mode on most phones today you can set same ISO, same shutter and same exposure in test...for better compare of real camera capability between phones.
But heck, iphone cant do that so....they test them only in automodes. Oh, with an extra out-of--automode portrait mode feature protocol excursion...since iphone got that it "needed" to be included right? (looking at you Dxo)
Hmmm, better batterylife on XZ1? I thought OLED was the more efficient one...
Mind you, Im doing a compare just because same size, same battery maH, same OS....
Cant believe they ditched the headphone jack and have no stereo sound recording....
You should be more consistent in your studio photo comparisons.
In this test you compare three phones with very different ISO settings and shutter speeds. Why? iPhone ISO 100 - 1/30th vs Pixel ISO 615 - 1/33th vs S8 ISO 250 - 1/10th, really? The iPhone samples have 6 times less ISO than Pixel's 2 that makes the test unfair. Even though Pixel sharpness and artifacts are great for such a high ISO.
If you use lower shutter speeds on the iPhone because it has OIS it doesn't make sense because most of the time you're shooting moving subjects and OIS does nothing about that. You have pro modes in every phone where you can use the same settings and make a fair test. And this is not only about this test, you've been doing unfair tests like this since I know this site. You should really fix that, the reviews and the whole site is great but that is so wrong.
never liked nexuses or pixels. No replaceable batteries, no microsd, no irda, no fm radio (other phones had them all). Now no audio jack. They copy Apple's worst. Too limited phones
pramod5774, 07 Nov 2017My original Xperia X takes much better photo than pixel 2. Only condition is that you have to ... moreYeah no sheet. But here is the fact for ya, your beloved Sony's best effort, XZ Premium or whatever that maybe, can't even come close to Pixel 2016, so better troll elsewhere, but wait, Sony fanboys are the worst, or at least one of the worst anyway.
I can't tell in words how amazing is pixel 2 .
Just use one time phone will tell u all.
Bazzele is no issue if u want great performance in small size.i love my pixel 2.its even better than my Samsung s8.
