Google Pixel 4 vs iPhone 11 Pro Camera Compared in Early Test

The big news of the day was Google’s unveiling of its Pixel 4 and Pixel 4 XL smartphones, priced from $999 in Canada.

Tom Warren from The Verge has posted some early comparison images taken by the new Pixel 4 and compared them against Apple’s iPhone 11 Pro. The Pixel 4 has two cameras on the back, a 12.2 MP main lens along with a 16 MP telephoto lens. The iPhone 11 Pro has a 12 MP main lens, along with a 12 MP ultra-wide and 12 MP telephoto.

“I took to the streets of London earlier today to try out the Pixel 4 and iPhone 11 Pro side by side. I took every photo at the same time, as close together as possible to get an identical image just using the automatic mode on both built-in camera apps. These photos were taken mostly in natural light and on a sunny and overcast day,” writes Warren.

The early showdown has the Pixel 4 (left) and the iPhone 11 Pro (right), with a slider tool allowing for easy comparison of images. The early pictures were taken during the day, so no night images or low light photography was shared yet. Looking at just one image below, it appears the Pixel 4 image seems a bit underexposed compared to the iPhone 11 Pro, which also tends to favour slightly more saturated colours.
