Read the full post: http://andauth.co/KhabsV | The Samsung Galaxy S9 has some pretty epic new camera tech, but the Google Pixel 2 certainly knows how to hold its own. So which camera shoots better photos? Find out in our Samsung Galaxy S9 vs Google Pixel 2 camera comparison!
Note: As in previous years, there are actually two different camera sensors in use on the Galaxy S9 and S9 Plus: the Sony IMX345 or Samsung's own ISOCELL S5K2L3. Simply install the AIDA64 app if you want to see which one you've got.

The s9 is great but pixel won this comparison easily if I had to choose one I would pick....don't like Samsung software but their hardware is always better than the competition so meh. Ok I would pick the pixel
Both look great and really depends on the context of the shot how it will come out for each camera. I feel like S9 comes out ready to share on social media where the Pixel produces a shot that needs some tweeking with brightness before pushing it out. Also doubt selfie aesthetic standards are much determined by nerdy tech reviewers on youtube. If you really care about selfies find an influencer on instagram and find out what they are using to take their shots plus edits.
Pixel 3 has my attention more than ever! Google's philosophy behind the pixel's photography is just way more tasteful. Nothing extra, no cartoonish colors, no gaudy exposure, no God awful over sharpening. Kudos Google!
I think there both very good. Some of the pixels are really nice I do like the detail in some of the photos but over all I like the s9. Probably because I don't take selfies of any sort and the s9 is just as good at every thing else. Thank you
I really like your videos you have a great voice and a very professional way about you. Thanks for the comparison. In my opinion I preferred the pixel 2xl but both phones take great photos and it’s a difficult decision. I guess it depends on what you are looking for in a camera. I do like warm vibrant pictures that the s9 does excellent at. But I really like photos that show a lot of detail and I think the pixel xl is simply better at that. But to each there own. Either phone will great pictures.
Overall very close I would say..
S9 might be slightly better but the pixel 2 XL holds up pretty well...
For the front camera including portrait selfies.. pixel 2 XL is a clear winner..
Now just imagine pixel 3 camera..it will definitely kill the competition..
s9+ is way better ...it's much brighter and it is provide excellent details i don't know why and how you claim it hasn't good details only maybe in one or two photos no more ....but the pixel missed a lot
pixel is just simply BETTER! look how yellow samsung shots are! pixel has more detail and miles better dynamic range and more balanced colors (that means without a yellow film on top of every photo!) and this is a last year's phone! can't wait for pixel 3 to crush everyone again!
Well Pixel 2 XL is kind of like done a great. Most of the picture taken by pixel 2 XL are decent one compare to the samsung galaxy S9 because S9 really mess up with a light compare to the detailed photo.
Hands down, the Pixel. There is simply no comparison. Moreover, the iPhone comes second IMO, as the processing is more natural on it compared to the S9+. Samsung is a very distant third in overall image quality.
