Pixel 4A vs. iPhone SE: battle of the budget cameras

Testing Google’s Pixel 4A and Apple’s iPhone SE camera

Curated via Twitter from The Verge’s twitter account….

The iPhone SE’s 12MP single rear camera is the same single camera found on the iPhone 8, while the Pixel 4A’s 12. 2MP single rear camera is the same system Google has used since the Pixel 2.

It’s an all-out camera battle between the $350 Pixel 4A and the $400 iPhone SE in NYC.

The iPhone SE and the Pixel 4A both have single read camera systems.

But on a phone, it often forced me to back up to get a good frame of the subject, and I much preferred the wider angle portrait mode of the iPhone.

One noticeable difference, though, is where the Pixel evens out the exposure, the iPhone is not afraid to hold on to the shadows and create more contrast.

Using the Pixel’s portrait mode feels like putting on a longer lens, which, usually, is what I would do to take a portrait on a camera with interchangeable lenses.

But if you want many more samples, beautiful b-roll of NYC, and my pick for best budget phone camera, you’ll have to tune in to this episode of Full Frame.

While the Pixel wins at night, the iPhone dominates in processing power.

Thanks to smartphones, taking great photos no longer requires learning a camera system, image editing, and the ins and outs of photography.

When it comes to how quickly you can open the camera app, take a photo, and then review it, the iPhone wins.
