Antonio Villas-Boas’ headline says most of what you need to know:
Everyone expected the Pixel 4 to have the best smartphone camera, but Apple’s iPhone 11 Pro ruined Google’s party
Most shootouts show iPhone 11 winning the side-by-side photo matchups, winning all the video comparisons, and now challenging a $7,500 Canon DSLR.
Either Google messed up the camera on the Pixel 4, or Apple made significant strides in the iPhone 11-series camera.
Let’s go with #2.
It’s pretty clear that Apple’s iPhone 11 Pro is the overall winner for the best smartphone camera of 2019… Apple’s win is largely due to its fantastic regular and zoomed cameras, including the option of an ultra-wide lens. The iPhone 11 Pro is simply a more versatile camera than the Pixel 4, which only includes a regular camera lens and a zoomed lens.
