Pixel Smartphone Dominates Camera Quality

Even though Google's Pixel smartphone is well over my budget, I can't help but long for a pocketable device with such high image quality. This smartphone scores an unbelievable 89 on the DxOMark Mobile benchmark and is the best smartphone camera made - ever. Of course, Apple products are quite high on the list, but this one takes the cake - for the moment.

The Pixel’s strong scores under a wide range of conditions make it an excellent choice for almost any kind of photography. As with any small-sensor device, results are excellent in conditions with good and uniform lighting. But in addition, images captured indoors and in low light are very good and provide a level of detail unexpected from a smartphone camera. With flash, its auto white balance and detail preservation are excellent, making it suitable for indoor portraits — and even for photographing indoor events as long as there is some additional ambient light to help even out the flash.
