Like clockwork, each new iPhone launch is accompanied by some kind of scandal that’s usually exaggerated for dramatic impact, and in some situations, seemingly made up out of skinny air. There was, in fact, the bendgate saga that accompanied the iPhone 6, and who might neglect the downright comical hissgate that happened within the wake of the iPhone 7 launch. Arguably, the silliest ‘-gate’ controversy we’ve seen with Apple occurred only in the near past with beautygate.

Predictably, there have been no scarcity of feedback from fooled commenters thrashing pictures taken from what they had been led to consider was an iPhone.
A couple of of the extra noteworthy feedback embrace: “might simply get mistaken for a DSLR”, “greatest portrait mode but”, and “I’ve a iPhone XS Max and what Google is doing software program smart is witchcraft. that pic is so good lol.”

All in all, the continuing debate between photograph high quality on the iPhone and the Google Pixel 2 is arguably pointless. The high quality of pictures we will take right this moment in comparison with what was doable even a number of years in the past is totally insane. Suffice it to say, any premium smartphone you purchase right this moment will take completely beautiful pictures. And positive, digital camera fanatics may debate the professionals and cons amongst completely different smartphones for hours on finish, however for the typical purchaser, the talk is just not price having.
