Google Pixel 2 grabs DxOMark best smartphone camera crown

Well, that didn’t take long. Following our report a few hours ago on the news that Samsung had tied for DxOMark’s best camera title, Google has just announced on stage that the Pixel 2 has now taken the crown.

With a score of 98, the Google Pixel 2 trumps both the iPhone 8 and the Samsung Galaxy Note8, which just received a score a 94. With a 1/2.6-inch 12MP sensor and an f/1.8 aperture, the Pixel camera is going to be extremely hard to beat.

The new Pixel camera has Google’s electronic image stabilization paired with optical image stabilization technology, so it should be able to stabilize even the shakiest of video, as well as helping you get better static shots. And with unlimited full-size upload to Google Photos, you’ll be able to keep all the photos and videos you shoot without losing any quality.
