To recall, Google's latest flagship device has both standard-wide and tele-lens cameras on its main camera, however, it lacks ones for ultra-wide.

The device's camera is built around a 1/2.55-inch sensor with 12.2MP resolution and 1.4µm pixels. Then a 27mm-equivalent f/1.7 lens with optical image stabilization and PDAF autofocus are added to this set-up.

For the front, it has a single-lens camera, basically switching around the camera configuration from the Pixel 3. It is sporting a 50mm-equivalent tele-lens, providing around an x2 optical magnification for zoom shots. This feature allows an x2 optical magnification for zoom shots, plus there is a 16Mp 1/3.6-inch sensor capturing the images.

For video, Pixel 4 can shoot 4K (2160/30fps), but its default mode is in 1080p. Similar to Pixel 3, Pixel 4 remains to produce an automatic frame-rate switching between 30 and 60fps in video shots at 1080p. Also, there’s a gyro-based stabilization system included for smoother capture.

According to DxOMark, the earlier versions of Pixel cameras have helped Google smartphones ranked well because of its sophisticated software processing and computational photography. The combination of these technologies with a dual-lens camera on Pixel 4 could be positively intriguing. In fact, Pixel 4 now belongs to the top ten devices for smartphone image quality. There were remarkable improvements in most areas and a noteworthy development for zoom shots quality.

The result? It got an overall DxOMark Camera score of 112 to make it enter the top 10 of DxO's mobile camera rankings. It has a photo sub-score of 117 points and a video score of 101 points.

However, it continues to lag behind the likes of the Samsung Galaxy Note10+ 5G and the Huawei Mate 30 Pro.

It is mainly because of the lacking features such as an ultra-wide camera and a time-of-flight (ToF) sensor.

Even so, DxOMark concluded that it still has an outstanding performance for video, combined with solid results for still images. This ensures that the Pixel 4 as an appealing device for smartphone imaging enthusiasts.
