Google Pixel 5’s wimpy camera is driving me to the iPhone 12 – CNET
Google’s Pixel 5 smartphone has ultrawide and wide-angle cameras, but no telephoto for more distant subjects.
For years, I’ve used Google Pixels and Apple iPhones for my daily smartphone photography needs. For most shots, I’ve relied on Pixels because of Google’s pioneering computational photography software, which wrings superior image quality out of limited hardware. My current iPhone, an XS Max, has been relegated to occasions when I’ve needed a telephoto lens.
