I'm happy Google is finally trying to compete. Hopefully it will make Apple step up their game.

Compete? Google's wiping the floor with Apple's tech.

A quick recap of what has transpired:

- Apple has been making their own cameras for years.

- They have an 800 person team working on various aspects of cameras that go into iPhone

- out of nowhere, Google comes and just smashes things and takes the ball away from Apple

How fucking crazy is that!? Google has never made their own camera before just kicked the shit out of Apple's 800 person engineering team that has been making cameras for years!

And let's not even talk about THE ABSOLUTE DISASTER that is Siri. That thing is a giant turd. That Google Assistant kicked its shit and Siri will never recover. It's basically a toy compared to Assistant.

Solution is simple: fire half the Apple's leadership.

jesus christ, you're delusional. apple makes far more than one camera, so it's ridiculous to say that they have 800 people working on the iphone camera.

in any case, keep masturbating over camera reviews. no one's buying their phone based on the camera.

WRONG, they do have an 800 person team just for cameras. The info comes from Apple themselves.

Sure, but have you ever watched an Apple keynote? Cameras always get the prime spot. Why? Because it's the most often used feature of an iPhone.

Now go back to sucking on Cook's dick. You're fucking clurless, kiddo.

Que?

HTC made the phone for google.Google just "designed" it. i.e. decided what components are in it and how it looks. HTC make the thing and have been making phones for decades.

Its funny how people get so excited when a product that nearly matches an apple one, like years after Apple establish the benchmark. I mean, whats so cool about being as good as something was 2 yrs ago and costing top whack as well.

Ladies put your panties back on.. seriously.

Retard, HTC is just manufacturing it. They didn't do shit for Pixel.

yes for cameras. notice the 's'. there are at least 3 different cameras between the iphone 7 and iphone 7+, not to mention all the various flavors of ipads. do you think they all have the same camera?

They have three cameras. iPhone 7, 7+ and front facing (which is a joke). Cameras used in iPads are older iPhone cameras.

Neither Apple nor Google make their own cameras. They buy the hardware from camera makers (e.g., Sony) and develop their own software for it. Google didn't just crank out some software in a few months: They've been working on it at least since the first Android versions (and who knows how many engineers they use for that). Still, Kudos to them for what appears to be an excellent job (I particularly like the wedge body design to avoid the camera bump). Kudos to Apple too for just as fine of a job (including a more efficient ISP than anyone else in the business; the Pixel is still a bit slow for full-HDR pictures, for example).

Err... I suspect you're wrong about that. At least anecdotally, improved camera capabilities are the #1 reason people upgrade their phones outside plan schedules.

Your level of discourse speaks volumes (and you're mistaken).

But then you'll notice that the photos that require processing power or software assistance (i.e., bokeh/portrait or automatic color correction) are not kicking the shit out of anything. In fact, when you look at the Google pics vs. Apple pics on that basis, you see a massive gulf. Your inability to discern more subtle aspects of photo quality is annoying but less so than your apparent need to perform fellatio on all things Google.

SHUT THE FUCK UP YOU MOTHERFUCKING RETARD!

They only buy sensors from Sony etc. And Apple collaborates with Sony on the sensor as well.

EVERYTHING ELSE IS ENGINEERED BY APPLE!
