Pixel Software Makes The Camera Great

Google has put together a pretty interesting device with the Pixel phone. It has a great fit and finish, a fantastic camera, a solid screen and great battery life. The interesting thing about some of the features are that the hardware isn't all that cutting edge. Google has put together a tremendous software package that makes average hardware perform incredibly. The future of the camera is all about the software.

Clearly, this is by far the most competitive Google has ever been in mobile photography. But the Pixel phones, on paper, don't have cutting-edge hardware, relying on an f/2.0 lens without optical image stabilization. Instead, and in typical Google fashion, Google has turned to complex software smarts in order to power the Pixel camera.
