The Pixel 2 (and its larger counterpart the Pixel 2 XL) boasts one of the best cameras on a phone -- if not the best camera on any Android. From the way it handles low-light and shadows to highlights and blown-out backgrounds, the Pixel 2 can handle tricky situations and capture a great image.
Here, the Pixel 2 captures a tricky image with a dark foreground and an overexposed background. The camera uses HDR+ (left), but there's also HDR+ enhanced (right), which processes even more exposure to evenly light the photo.
The phone only has one lens to render dramatic, bokeh-like photos with blurred backgrounds. it uses a combination of facial algorithms and a special depth-mapping image sensor to achieve a depth-of-field effect.
In addition to photo improvements, Google added optical image stabilization for steadier photos and video. The company also added Motion Photos, that trims and loops 1.5-second videos for a "live" giffy photo.
