Google's Pixel has the 'best smartphone camera' ever

Google has revealed the specs for its new Pixel smartphone’s 12.3-megapixel camera, and they’re pretty impressive. For starters, it has the “best smartphone camera” rating ever given by DXOMark, the company says, with a mark of 89. Basically, that rating brings the device pretty close to the specs of a dedicated camera in terms of sharpness, color accuracy and so on. With a relatively large sensor and smallish 12.3-megapixel count, resulting in a 1.55-micron pixel size, the camera will generally be quicker and better in low light, too.

It also has the shortest capture time than any smartphone it has ever tested, meaning there’s next to no shutter lag, in case you’re taking action shots. Because it’s so fast, the HDR function is always on, helping eliminate daylight scenes that are too bright and shadows that are too dark. Google says it splits images into short, multiple exposures in order to align pixels, eliminate blur, and improve dynamic range.
