iPhone X vs. Pixel 2 Camera in Five Images

This post is a long time coming, in that I had this idea a long time ago but wanted the right opportunity to do some quality comparison images between both the iPhone X and the Pixel 2. There are some very important differences about how both companies are philosophically approaching imaging, and these differences are the most interesting parts to analyze. In many respects, these are both fantastic cameras. It’s hard to say that an owner of either device is going to be disappointed, with few exceptions which I will point out, with the overall picture taking quality of either smartphone.

For this test, I attempted to get as close as possible as I could the same photo using the same technique. In every case, each photo was taken seconds after the previous shot from the same position. Click on any image to enlarge and inspect them for yourself.
