From a stats perspective, the camera in the Pixel 2 XL is better than that of the original Pixel XL. But if you can pick up a deal on the Pixel XL, are you sacrificing too much in photo quality? That’s the question that fellow Google Top Contributor Scott Peachey tries to answer in his latest comparison.
Scott gives a detailed overview of the cameras in both the 2 XL and the original XL from a video, images and selfie images of both devices (he even squeezes in some Pixel 2 discussion in there too). He explains his method for testing and you can see the results of the comparison in the six minute video.
Ultimately the question in the video comes down to if you should justify the extra cost of the Pixel 2 XL versus the original Pixel. Without giving away too many details, the answer is mixed and really depends on what you need or want out of the camera as well as the type of photos that you should.
