Phone enthusiasts are known to be fiercely loyal to their preferred system, particularly when it comes to long-standing rivals Samsung and Apple. However, one thing that we all agree on is Google’s expertise in delivering excellent camera performance with its Pixel phones.
Pixel 6 and Pixel 7 series camera enhancements
Recently, Google updated its Camera app to version 8.8, providing some welcome enhancements for both the Pixel 6 and 6 Pro, as well as the current flagships – Pixel 7 and Pixel 7 Pro. The Pixel 6 series received improved Night Sight controls, including the ability for owners to choose how long the camera takes to capture a photo while shooting in Night Sight mode. The update also introduces a small circle at the bottom right of the screen displaying how many seconds it will take to snap a shot, allowing users to adjust the time to capture more light or reduce the chance of blurriness.
Meanwhile, the Pixel 7 series received a slight quality-of-life improvement, with Google tweaking the camera app’s UI to make it more user-friendly. The app’s zoom range display now resembles what you would see on a camera lens, with the number representing the current zoom level hovering above the line and dots replaced by lines. The new UI design also features larger lines to denote specific zoom levels and is consistent with Google’s Material You design language.
Both Pixel 6 and Pixel 7 series makes a significant change on camera module. If you have one, you can perform.
