Pixel 3 XL vs iPhone XS Max Camera Test Comparison

by birtanpublished on November 23, 2020

What's up guys laughs you're on super-safe TV and welcome to another super staff style camera comparison this time between the Google pixel 3 XL and the iPhone 10s max so you guys know the drill will be checking out all of the aspects of the cameras front-facing rate based saying videos images and we'll also be checking out the audio so look out for the audio icon in the corner of the screen and I will indicate you which device the audio is coming from what we're switching between these two throughout this video as well to give you guys a good idea of the differences in audio so we're currently using the

Front-facing cameras on both devices and just to test out stabilization I'm just walking right now and now let's go ahead and run you know you guys think of the dynamic range we've got a lot of light coming here from the background now with the pixel you also have a wide-angle front facing camera so you can see here that I've switched to it I don't think you can switch to it while you're recording but you can start off with that you can see that we get so much more of the background with the wide-angle camera of the pixel compared to the regular angle that we've got I'll

Wear on to the rear facing cameras for K 30 frames a second the iPhone does have two times optical zoom so this means we can get in much closer with the pixel I can try to replicate it with digital zoom by pinching but that is digital zoom let's go back out see the dynamic range here because we've got the Sun out now it's gonna test out stabilization so take it a walk I know this one I'm just testing out the you to focus on the iPhone tennis max seems to be doing absolutely fine same to us on the pixel absolutely fine and my ass was about to

Go so that was the video now before we move on to images let's have a quick look up all working with the iPhone has a single seven megapixel front-facing camera with an F 2.2 aperture the pixel has two front-facing cameras both 8 megapixels the primary camera has a standard angle of the view with an F 1.8 aperture and then we've got a secondary wide-angle camera now this has in 97 degree field of view this is gonna be really useful for your weepies goofy's whatever you wanna call it now things are reversed on the rear because on the pixel you have a single rear-facing

Camera on the iPhone you have dual rear facing cameras the primary cameras on both devices have 12 megapixels with an F 1.8 aperture as well as optical image stabilization but the iPhone does have a secondary telephoto camera which is going to give you two times optical zoom this is something that you don't have on the pixel now you may have noticed that my iPhone looks very unique and that is because I've got a marble D brand skin on here who are a sponsor for this video they've got skins for the iPhone 10s max the Google pixel 3x Zoltan many many of the devices I'm gonna be leaving a link

To them in the description below and final point to mention is that everything that you see has been shot on automatic and that is to keep things as far as possible now starting off with some selfies outdoors both are doing really good dynamic range is great on both as well the pixel does look sharper compared to the iPhone however and with the pixel you do have that wide-angle lens so this is a perfect situation where you might want to use it and look how much more of the background that you get here on the pixel wind wide-angle lens you can appreciate so

Much more of the surroundings with that wide-angle camera and it works really really well now moving on to another selfie I wanted to really test the dynamic range from the front-facing cameras here once again both doing a really good job we've got warmer tones on the air phone we've got cooler tones on the pixel I think this is gonna come down to Paris on preference the pixel sharper once again the iPhone may be a little bit smoother on the skin you might prefer that but the main thing I can notice here is that the pixel does have better dynamic range if you look

Towards the clouds in the background some of those have been blown out on the iPhone and although the iPhone is doing an overall decent job the pixel is doing better in terms of dynamic range once again testing out that wide-angle selfie camera and the dynamic range actually seems better on the Y angle camera it looks like Google really applying some software magic here because everything is so so good nothing is blown out here in the shot and I'm very impressed with this wide-angle camera on the pixel now let's move on to the portrait mode from the front-facing camera where it's gonna

Blur the background both doing a very good job overall but the edge detection is better on the pixel this is something that the pixel has always been known to do really really well from the front-facing cameras the iPhone is not doing a bad job at all but if you look towards the edges of my glasses as well as my hair then things have been a little bit blurred out also the dynamic range on the pixel does seem to be better overall and moving on to another portrait selfie again both doing a really good job but the iPhone here does seem to have slightly better dynamic

Range if you look towards my nose things haven't been blown out as much as they have done on the pixel and also if you look towards my t-shirt and jacket on the iPhone you can see things more compared to the pixel the pixel once again is sharper and I do prefer the edge detection overall on the pixel compared to the iPhone on the iPhone things are a little bit more blurred out towards my hair whereas the pixel has done a great job in terms of edge section now moving on to some low-light selfies here I think it's very clear to see that the pixel is doing a better job

It's a brighter image and that does seem thanks to the wider F 1.8 aperture that we've got on the pixel and if you do use the front-facing flash where it illuminates the display the iPhone is doing much better than it was in the previous shots but here once again I do prefer the image from the pixel it's just brighter you can see more of the background and the colors have all being better maintained now let's move outdoors so we've got some shot here of the ice cream which I specifically bought for this camera comparison color difference is once again we've got

Warmer tones on the iPhone whereas we've got cooler tones on the pixel I think this is gonna come down to your personal preference I'm moving on to some outdoor wide shots I think both are doing a really good job but I overall do prefer the iPhone image I think in terms of dynamic range it does seem to be better overall if we look towards the darker areas it looks like the shadow details have been better maintained on the iPhone compared to the pixel which is very very interesting now the iPhone does have the two times optical zoom so it is gonna let's get in much closer to

Our subject I did try to repeat this with digital zoom on the pixel and both are actually doing a really good job but the iPhone is sharper and that is because it's got a dedicated lens but the pixel was actually doing pretty good considering it's digital zoom so they've got the super resume which is using software to be able to zoom in closer to your subject and I have to say it is doing an impressive job but I would have to give the win for zoom to the iPhone now I really want is the test out of the dynamic range further and this is a very very tricky situation because we've got

A Sun in the background and then we've got this ice-cream van and here I do prefer the iPhone image colors are better maintained on the ice cream van details on the shadows are better maintained here as well the pixel is doing good overall but I prefer the iPhone image now let's look at the portrait mode from the rear facing cameras where it's gonna blur the background both are doing very very good here you'll notice that the pixel is wider and that is because you have a single camera on the pixel on the iPhone it is using the telephoto camera to be

Able to achieve this so to match things as close as possible I have cropped in a little bit on the pixel shot just so you can see a side-by-side and both doing a very very good job in terms of edge detection once again those color differences we've got warmer tones on the iPhone and cooler tones on the pixel but generally speaking both of these are doing great now I went out and took a bunch more portrait shots just to really test out how good the edge section is something that I did notice is that the iPhone did seem to do better in terms of edge detection from the rear facing

Cameras if you look at this example here you can see that both have struggled with my ear but the pixel has struggled more and it's also struggled a little bit with my hair now I can only assume this is because we've got the single camera on the pixel compared to the dual cameras on the iPhones so in terms of sensing depth it's not doing as much of a good job as the iPhone is and this is visible once again in this example if you look towards my sunglasses and my hair you can see that the pixel has struggled here compared to the iPhone so for edge detection it does seem like the

IPhone is doing a better job overall now let's move on to lower light at first glance the pixel does seem to be the better image it's brighter but I can notice more noise in the clouds compared to that of the iPhone and if we go in 200% the iPhone does seem to be a little bit sharper compared to the pixel now this may be because the pixel is using a slow shutter speed to let in more light which is resulting in a litte bit of blur so I would have to call this image a draw and trying out another image in low-light here I do prefer the pixel image it's brighter the colors are

Better maintained and if we go in 200% this time I would say in terms of sharpness both are very very similar but I do overall prefer the low-light image here on the pixel there will be a night sight mode available on the pixel soon by a software update but that software update isn't currently available so those were the results now in terms of my conclusions let's initially talk about images from the front-facing camera I would have to give the oval win to the pixel and that is because you had slightly better dynamic range you've got the secondary

Camera which is going to be great for group selfies and also to get in a lot more of your background for the front-facing portrait mode the edge detection also seemed better on the pixel and for low-light as well the pixels did seem to be better for the front-facing camera but when it comes to the rear facing camera images things were very interesting and very very close in good light I did prefer the iPhone overall I think you had better dynamic range you also have two times optical zoom on the iPhone and although the digital zoom on the pixel was

Actually really good the edge would have to go to the optical zoom the edge detection afford the portrait mode from the rear facing cameras was also better in my opinion on the iPhone compared to the pixel this is something that I also found last year with the pixel twos the edge detection from the rear facing camera is not consistent sometimes it can struggle I think this may come down to the fact that you've got the single camera or the pixel so it's not as good as sensing that death as the eye and we did have the color differences warmer tones on the iphone cooler tones

On the pixel I think that will come down to personal preference but for low-light images I did prefer the pixel overall as mentioned we do not have the nitesite update as yet so things should only get better if you do want me to do a low-light super surf style camera shootout between maybe a few devices the pixel the iPhone the notes maybe the Huawei device that's coming soon definitely let me know in the comments below and which devices you'd like me to do a low light shoots out of I'll try to do that once we've got the nitesite update on

The pixel and finally let's talk about video I think hands down you have to agree that the iPhone was much better compared to pixel and if I'm completely honest it seems like video was very much an afterthought for Google when it came to the pixels they very much concentrated on the imaging side of things and those have worked very very well but video seems to be very second area and this is something that I also found with the pixel 2 + 2 X so if we compare the pixel 3 Excel to the iPhone 10s max the video on the iPhone firstly you've got higher frame rate so you've

Got 4k at up to 60 frames a second as well as 1080p at up to 240 frames a second but the actual video quality the color seen better we had better dynamic range on the iPhone both from the front and rear facing cameras stabilization in order to focus I would call a bit withdraw and although both devices now record in stereo the iPhone just sounded better to me the pixel sounded a little bit tinny you can go back and have a listen if you'd like and that's what I think what do you guys think definitely let me know in the comments below if you want to see more super staff style
