The most convenient way to carry a camera in order to document your activities or for any photo shoot, is by having a camera phone with high pixel quality. Apple is the unbeatable company when it comes to incorporating the best quality camera in a Smartphone and due to the pressure of competing in the market it comes up with a better quality camera every time it releases a new phone. This article solely compares and analyses the latest portrait feature of the iPhone7 Plus and the Google Pixel.
The Apple cameras have been unparallel to other android phones but they regularly face a threat of being beaten. This pressure has resulted in the company spending large amount of time and money into developing its cameras for every successive model of the iPhone. The latest Google Pixel has features similar to the iPhone 7 Plus which includes the portrait feature but the difference is clearly seen in the picture qualities.
According to details from BGR, the iPhone 7 Plus has two amazing 12 megapixel sensors, one of them being a wide angle lens and the other one is a telephoto lens . It has the capability to deliver a "bokeh" effect like the ones similar to the high-end DSLR cameras. The "Portrait Mode" uses advanced software which helps to artificially blur the background of a photo gently while simultaneously enhancing the main subject of a photo (like a portrait) with a sharper focus. The apple cameras give ample amount of exposure and real effect to the pictures but fall short in capturing a large area.
PhoneArena further explains that the Google Pixel line of smart phones have a much similar portrait effect called the "Lens Blur". The Google Pixel camera makes you tilt your device and allows your subject (main focus object) to appear to be quite close to the lens. The blurring effect of the pixel gives an artificial look of the picture with a highly visible edge of the blur around the subject. Even with its own faults of underexposing, Pixel has fared better in the actual focusing of the subject than the iPhone and it also focuses on a wider area which proves beneficial when it comes to capturing a large area.
