The best Android cameras vs. the iPhone 11!

by birtanpublished on September 12, 2020

It's no stretch to call photography one of the most important aspects of a flagship phone these days for a lot of people the cameras on their phone are the only cameras they own which makes high quality versatile shooters all the more important I'm high auto with

Android Central and I visited New York City with my friends Renee and Michael to pit some of the very best Android phones against each other and the iPhone 11 Pro we were at a great point in mobile photography where just about any

High-end phone offers at least one fantastic camera and many of them have a second or even third to fall back on during our testing we used the Galaxy Note 10.1 zan droid phones on the market along with the pixel 3 which is widely

Regarded as having the best singular camera experience of course the iPhone 11 pro and its larger sibling the 11 Pro max share a similar triple camera system with wide ultra wide and telephoto cameras we compared every phone in a

Variety of shooting conditions but let's start with the daytime shots where you really get a sense for where every cameras quirks come in play Apple has always had an affinity for natural if not a bit overly warm colors

And that's still the case with the iPhone 11 everything from white balance to exposure and fine details are usually spot-on but the same can be said of photos from the other phones as well the Galaxy Note 10 for example has a

Tendency to over saturate at times but it can also often expose much more evenly than the iPhone the pixel 3 almost splits the difference between the two with great colors and dynamic range but a tendency to produce slightly

Darker shots than the others at least in its auto shooting mode now admittedly I've never cared much for the color science of the p30 Pro which shoots much cooler and aggressively lightened skin tones but the image quality is

Definitely there with the 40 megapixel primary sensor and Huawei absolutely nails exposure and fine details will quickly breeze through portrait mode since it's never really great on any phone but what surprised me is that

Samsung seems to give you the most natural-looking portrait shot by default with plenty of sharpness and decent separation and hair though it still cuts off glasses now the pixel four is coming

Soon and it's been confirmed to have a secondary lens which is great news but at the moment the pixel three relies on a single camera which means it doesn't offer true telephoto or wide-angle photography the iPhone 11 Pro note 10 +

+ P 30 Pro all have ultra wide and telephoto lenses though the P 30 Pro offers a 5 times optical zoom versus the others two times that gives it a major advantage in getting closer to your subject and you can zoom even further by

Adding in digital zoom the others don't match the P 30s distance or image quality but they both fare pretty well though the iPhone seems to have a sharper telephoto lens in the note 10 plus it also has the most consistent

Colors across lenses including its ultra wide lens but there's also a bit more barrel distortion than on the note 10 plus or the P 30 Pro now switching gears to low-light performance each phone takes a different approach the iPhone 11

Pro is Apple's first device to finally introduce a low-light photo mode taking dramatically better photos at night than the previous models but that's nothing really new for Android the pixel 3 has long been our low-light champ with its

Night sight mode which still goes toe-to-toe against the iPhone both pull in similar amounts of light and take one to two seconds to capture most photos but the iPhone tends to lean much warmer than the pixel sometimes to a fault and

Truth be told I had to edit the colors from either camera before posting to social media the p30 Pro cranks up saturation and brightness at night and retains a ton of detail even compared to the pixel 3 and iPhone 11 the Galaxy

Note 10 is the only phone that while capable of taking great night shots can be frustrating in practice it's night mode is more of a long exposure mode taking as long as five – even 10 seconds at times to capture photos without

Giving any progress status which can lead to a lot of blurry photos for a deeper dive into the various aspects of night photography on each phone check out Rene Ritchie's camera comparison over a vector I'm gonna leave you to

Determine for yourself what the best overall phone for photography is but I'll at least say this much when it comes to color science dynamic range and low-light performance I personally like shooting with the pixel

3 and the iPhone 11 best but the p30 Pro has a ton of great unique aspects to its cameras and with the note 10 plus you have the added benefit of the s-pen for remote shutter operation each phone takes great photos under different

Circumstances it's just up to you to decide which one best fits your particular needs this video was made with plenty of help from Rene Richie and Michael Fisher check out Rene's channel over at vector for a thorough analysis

On how all of these phones compare with night mode in particular and catch Michael's initial impressions video on the iPhone 11 series over at mr. mobile thanks as always for watching and I'll see you next time
