According to DxOMark website, the cameras of the Pixel 4 isn’t all that great.
Google Pixel 4 includes dual cameras on the back and a single image sensor on the front. The Pixel 4 comes packed with a primary 12MP primary lens and secondary camera fits a 16MP telephoto lens. On the front the Pixel 4 includes an 8MP camera for clicking selfies. Well, compared to the Android phones these days the camera of the Pixel 4 doesn’t seem all that impressive on paper. Most Android flagships and also some non-flagships these days come with 48MP and 64MP image sensor. Compared to the other Android smartphones these days Pixel 4 seems far behind. DxOMark also suggests the same.
In DxOMark the back cameras of the Google Pixel 4 scores 112 while the front camera of the phone scores 92 points. As far as the back cameras performance is concerned the Pixel 4 scores much lesser points that the Huawei Mate 30 Pro, Samsung Galaxy Note 10+, Huawei P30 Pro, Samsung Galaxy S10 5G, OnePlus 7 Pro, Honor 20 Pro, and Samsung Galaxy S10+. In selfies the Pixel 4 scores fewer points than phones like Mate 30 Pro, Galaxy Note 10+, Galaxy S10 5G, and Galaxy S10+.
Overall the DxOMark result reveals that the Pixel 4 shoots great videos and the exposure and details are great in still images. It further reveals that the auto-focus of the Pixel 4 is pretty accurate. The Pixel 4 manages to click pretty detailed pictures in both indoor and outdoor scenarios. The smartphone also gets the colours right. DxOMark reveals that it is in low-light that Pixel 4 struggles sometimes. “At medium and long range in bright light, it doesn’t preserve fine detail quite as well as the Huawei P30 Pro, but again, the Pixel 4 was often better at these focal ranges for indoor and low-light shots.”The Pixel 4 also clicks great bokeh shots.
DxOMark concludes by saying, “The dual-cam Pixel 4 allays those fears, and the introduction of a second tele-lens makes it one of the best performers for zoom on the market that we’ve tested. It’s a solid performer in most other areas for stills, too, not to mention achieving joint top rank for video, with exceptional results for color, noise, and artifacts in moving images. Adding an ultra-wide-angle third camera and dedicated ToF sensor for bokeh shots will be needed in future iterations, however, if the Pixel is going to meet the challenge for a spot at the very top of our rankings for stills.”
