The new Google Pixel smartphone features the best digital camera on the market. It has the highest rating for a smartphone with a DxOMark rating of 89, better than any other smartphone tested to date.
Actually, this rating camera to me as a surprise because it wasn't there (obviously) before the event, and apparently Google sent the phone to DxOMark for testing and when they've got the results, they would share it with the whole world and after the event, the Google Pixel phone appears on their website in the first place.
Just for comparison, the Google Nexus 6 got 78 rating, the iPhone 6s/6 got 82 rating, Nexus 6P achieved 84, the new Apple iPhone 7 received 86 and Google's brand new Pixel phone received 89.
Google Pixel is the phone to beat right now as far as image quality goes.
