Pixel 4 versus Pixel 3 real world camera comparison

by birtanpublished on September 17, 2020

Hey what's going on guys I'm Nick gray from Phandroid and welcome to my messy office today we're gonna be doing a smartphone camera comparison with the pixel for which we're using right now to record and last year's pixel three now there are a lot of similarities between

These two devices when it comes to the software and the image processing but they do have some differences as far as the cameras go so we're gonna look at the specifications of these two devices to see how they actually stack up but

Before we do that I'd like to remind you that everything you see in this video is going to be recorded with these two smartphones so make sure you keep an eye on the bottom left-hand corner to see which device is being used so with that

Let's take a look at the specifications since the pixel 4 is the newer of the 2 we're gonna start things off there and on the back you have a square camera module which features two camera sensors a standard 12 megapixel and then a 2x

Telephoto that's paired with a 16 megapixels sensor and then up front Google's using a 8 megapixel front-facing camera to capture selfies and as far as video resolution goes you're looking at 1080p video at 30

Frames per second from that front-facing camera and the rear cameras can record 4k video at 30 frames per second now the pixel 3 from last year does have three sensors on the phone as well but they're different than what the pixel 4

Has on the back you get a standard 12 megapixel sensor this can record 4k video at 30 frames per second just like the pixel 4 and then up front you actually get 2 cameras up there with a standard and then an ultra-wide which

Allows you to zoom out and get a lot more in the scene and both of these can record a 1080p video at 30 frames per second so now that we're up to date on the specifications of the cameras on these two smartphones we're going to

Jump in and look at some side-by-side photo and video comparisons to see how they actually compare in real world scenarios check it out

while recording video the pixel 4 really doesn't offer anything new over last year's pixel 3 both devices are recording 4k video at 30 frames per second even though the processor inside

The pixel 4 can definitely handle that the one advantage that you do get out of the pixel 4 is that now you have the 2x zoom which you can see right here which does come in handy when you have dr just sitting in your back yard eating dinner

They give you an idea of what the video quality difference is between these two devices Google really hasn't done much to improve the quality of the video itself as you can see white balance on both of these devices is pretty close it

Does tend to be on the cooler side it does really good with exposure but you do not get 60 frames per second in 4k on either devices which is a little bit of a disappointment but the fact that Google's device or the pixel four can

Now zoom in to that secondary sensor with a Q X zoom does come in handy from time to time when you want to get in closer to the subject one of the things that I'm most excited about though with the video quality on the pixel 4 is that

They've made huge improvements to the audio quality from the microphones on this device compared to last year's pixel 3 switching over right now you can hear there's a clear difference between these two devices and the audio that

They're able to capture

and this is to give you a look at what the video quality is from both of these devices during low-light conditions both

Of the pixel three and the pixel four record 4k video at 30 frames per second from the rear camera which honestly is a little bit of a letdown since a lot of other devices can record 4k video at 60 frames per second but Google does a

Really good job with the optical image stabilization which is enhanced with electronic image stabilization on both of these devices as well and the video quality here from the front-facing cameras of both of these phones look to

Be pretty similar at 1080p pixal three does have a one-trick that piece of four doesn't have and that's that cultural wide-angle lens which isn't that much wider than what the pixel three can the pixel four can

Capture but it's still nice to have the option of that secondary sensor so that you can capture more in your seat

so that's going to do it for our camera comparison between last year's pixel

Three and the brand new pixel four now I have to say there is a lot to like about the new pixel 4 especially with that 2x telephoto zoom on the back of the phone and the fact that audio quality on this device is dramatically better than what

You can get out of last year's pixel 3 that being said though photos and videos between these two devices are extremely close the pixel 4 does come out ahead in most situations but the pixel 3 can definitely still hold its own that being

Said the one feature that I do miss from the pixel 3 is its ability to do this zoom out on the front-facing camera give you giving you a wider field of view something that the pixel 4 just doesn't have thank you guys so much for watching

The video let me know what you guys think of the comparisons and which device you think it takes better photos and videos don't forget to subscribe for more camera comparisons with the new pixel floor and we'll catch you in the

Next one you
