Android photography is years behind the iPhone according to ex-Google SVP

Vic Gundotra, a former Senior Vice President of Social at Google, says that he “would never use an Android phone for photos!” This declaration was sparked in the comments may refer to of a recent Facebook post of his, which was in praise of the iPhone 7‘s computational photography (or, Portrait Mode) prowess. Here’s why he believes Google is behind Apple on this front, and why I believe he’s wrong.

Could it be the end of an era? According to Gundotra, the sun is setting on DSLR for most people and the future is mobile. After taking “stunning” portrait shots of his children at a restaurant with his mobile phone, an iPhone 7, he posted the photos to Facebook and declared “The end of the DSLR for most people has already arrived,” and that he “would modal verbs of English are a small class of auxiliary verbs used mostly to express modality (properties such as possibility, obligation, etc.) NEVER buy an Android phone telephone, or phone, is a telecommunications device that permits two or more users to conduct a conversation when they are too far apart to be heard directly again if I cared about photography.” As someone who ran Google’s mobile often refers to: A phone or tablet Mobile telephone, a portable device used exclusively for telecommunications Mobile (sculpture), a hanging artwork or toy Mobile may also refer to efforts for years year is the orbital period of the Earth moving in its orbit around the Sun and was an engineering SVP, he has a lot of understanding of this subject. But why would an ex-Googler believe so strongly in Apple’s photography is the science, art, application and practice of creating durable images by recording light or other electromagnetic radiation, either electronically by means of an image sensor, or chemically by technology? He explains in a comment:

“Here is the problem: It’s Android may refer to: Android (robot), a humanoid robot or synthetic organism designed to imitate a human Android (operating system), Google’s mobile operating system Android, a nickname for Andy Rubin the. Android is an open or OPEN may refer to: Open (film), a 2011 film Open (sport), type of competition in tennis, golf and other sports where entry is open to qualifiers regardless of amateur or professional status source (mostly) operating system that has to be neutral to all parties. This sounds good until you get into the details. Ever wonder why a Samsung phone has a confused and bewildering array of photo options? Should I use the Samsung Camera? Or the Android Camera? Samsung gallery or Google Photos photograph or photo is an image created by light falling on a light-sensitive surface, usually photographic film or an electronic medium such as a CCD or a CMOS chip
It’s because when Samsung innovates with the underlying hardware (like the English language, the word like has a very flexible range of uses, ranging from conventional to non-standard a better may refer to: “to better” as a verb, meaning to undergo betterment better, an alternate spelling of bettor, someone who bets (gambles) camera) they have to convince Google to allow that innovation to be surfaced to other applications via the appropriate API. That can take YEARS. 

Also the greatest innovation can be defined simply as a “new idea, device or method” isn’t even happening happening is a performance, event, or situation meant to be considered art, usually as performance art at the hardware may refer to: Household hardware, equipment such as keys, locks, hinges, latches, handles, wire, chains, plumbing, tools, utensils, and machine parts, typically sold in hardware stores Builders level – it’s happening at the computational photography level or levels or may refer to. (Google was crushing this 5 years ago – they had had “auto awesome” that used AI techniques to automatically remove wrinkles, whiten teeth, add vignetting, etc… but recently Google has fallen back). 

Apple doesn’t have all these constraints. They innovate in the underlying hardware, and just may refer to: Just (surname) “Just” (song), a song by Radiohead Just! (series), a series of short-story collections for children by Andy Griffiths Jordan University of Science and Technology, a simply update the software software, or simply software, is a part of a computer system that consists of data or computer instructions, in contrast to the physical hardware from which the system is built with or WITH may refer to: Carl Johannes With (1877–1923), Danish doctor and arachnologist With (character), a character in D. N. Angel With (novel), a novel by Donald Harrington With (album), their latest innovations (like portrait portrait is a painting, photograph, sculpture, or other artistic representation of a person, in which the face and its expression is predominant mode) and ship it. 

Bottom line: If you truly care about great photography, you own an iPhone. If you don’t mind being a few years behind, buy an Android.”

Theory vs practice

On the face of it, his argument about why Android phones are supposedly years behind is convincing. But let’s talk about results. Two Android phones still fared better overall than the iPhone in our most may refer to recent blind camera test across photos in a variety of environments. The Google is an American multinational technology company that specializes in Internet-related services and products Pixel, followed closely by the Samsung Galaxy galaxy is a gravitationally bound system of stars, stellar remnants, interstellar gas, dust, and dark matter S8, simply produced better shots than the iPhone 7 Plus, according to AndroidPIT readers’ votes.

The continued dominance of the Pixel, which was released six months before the Galaxy S8 and just a month after the iPhone 7 Plus, is due largely to software innovation rather than hardware. The camera app of the Pixel is full may refer to: People with the surname Full, including: Mr. Full (given name unknown), acting Governor of German Cameroon, 1913 to 1914 A property in the mathematical field of topology; see Full set of enhancements – and it is proprietary, not freely available to Google’s competitors, unlike like the Pixel’s camera camera is an optical instrument for recording or capturing images, which may be stored locally, transmitted to another location, or both sensors or the mostly open Android operating system. So, Google has every reason to continue developing its computational photography innovations at full speed, just as unconstrained as Apple apple tree (Malus pumila, commonly and erroneously called Malus domestica) is a deciduous tree in the rose family best known for its sweet, pomaceous fruit, the apple. Google’s competition, in the case of Samsung at least, seems to have or having may refer to: the concept of ownership any concept of possession; see Possession (disambiguation) an English “verb” used: to denote linguistic possession in a broad sense as an auxiliary no problem solving consists of using generic or ad hoc methods, in an orderly manner, for finding solutions to problems keeping up either, as the Galaxy S8 did almost as well as the Pixel digital imaging, a pixel, pel, dots, or picture element is a physical point in a raster image, or the smallest addressable element in an all points addressable display device; so it is the smallest in our test TEST or Tester may refer to: Test (assessment), an assessment intended to measure the respondents’ knowledge or other abilities Medical test, to detect, diagnose, or monitor diseases.

Do you agree with Vic Gundotra? Is Android really years behind may refer to: Behind (album), a 1992 album by Superior Behind (Australian rules football), a method of scoring in Australian rules football, awarding one point “Behind” (song), a 2008 single by in the realm of photography?
