There’s little doubt that the Pixel 3 has one of the best camera setups we’ve tested this year. After comparing the Pixel 3’s camera to that of the LG G7, we thought it would be a good idea to see how Google’s new flagship stacks up against last year’s Pixel 2.
The main 12.2MP camera on the back of the Pixel 3 has all the same hardware features as the Pixel 2. The only difference is that it now has a 28mm lens versus the 27mm lens of the Pixel 2. The real difference between these devices comes down to their front-facing cameras. Last year’s model has a single 8 MP sensor with an f/2.4, 27mm lens compared to the dual-sensor camera on the front of the Pixel 3 which is comprised of two 8MP sensors which are respectively paired with f/1.8, 28mm and f/2.2, 19mm lenses. This gives the Pixel 3 extra versatility with the ultra-wide lens, allowing you to fit in an extra friend or two in your selfies or more of your surroundings.
The video and gallery below will give you a closer look at the image and video quality form the Pixel 3 and Pixel 2. Images from the Pixel 3 are on the left and those of the Pixel 2 are on the right. Let us know what you think and which device you’d rather take pictures with.
