Outstanding Camera to Take Lifelike Images
The Google Pixel XL's 12.3 MP rear camera is outstanding at clicking low light images. Besides this, it is designed to give you more detailed and color-accurate pictures, you have ever seen on a camera phone. Comparing with the leading camera on the Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge, you will find that the S7 Edge's back camera clicks over saturated pictures and fails in maintaining the picture quality in a brightly lit environment. Contrary to that, camera on the Pixel XL remains consistent in almost every scenario via balancing the brightness and color contrast in its every shot. Although, it lacks the important camera feature – OIS and packs in Electronic Image Stabilization (EIS), the rear camera simply does the great job and captures sharper and clearer pictures.
