**Edit**
For wide-angle selfies on iPhone 11 Pro, you don't HAVE to turn the phone to landscape but instead can click on the button to switch angles. I forgot about that button. My bad!

I don’t really take a whole lot of selfies either so I kinda forgot about the button

Glad you mentioned this.. I was really confused watching this why you thought the only way was to rotate (but to be fair that is how Apple showed it off)

The big selling point Pixel phones had over iphone was their camera ( better photos quality ) in a far cheaper price. This year since Iphone 11 takes similar and many times better photos on a similar price point ( or even cheaper ) PLUS far better videos the choice this year is pretty easy. Iphone, not even pro, is a better deal than Pixel 4 since can take similar or better quality photos and far better videos. Maybe i will wait for Pixel 4a or buy iphone 11.

For me the iPhone is the clear winner (in terms of main camera pictures; i don’t care about video and selfies):
Aside from Edge detection and Zoom it wins each category for me.
Normal pictures are pretty much the same, but I find the iPhone’s pictures a bit more appealing, also Portrait shots look more appealing on the iPhone, same as night shots. And of course it has a wide-angle camera, which is a must-have in 2019.

Pixel 4 only good on edge detection but photos quality equal,and no doubt for iphone video recording.oh btw the iphone color is warmer not cooler.

Comparing the iPhone 11 Pro and the Pixel 4 makes sense how? In terms of price it would make more sense to compare the P4 with the normal iPhone 11.

He didn't mention iPhone Deep Fusion release was imminent which could change some of the results more in iPhone favor.
Just so happens Deep Fusion was released to the public today (six days after his review) in ios13.2.

Is deep fusion officially released for users or yet to be released? Because some tech youtubers have been saying it has been released but others are saying it hasn't been.

The one constant in smart phone cameras is none are perfect , and what one does well in one area and crap in another ,
There will be another smart phone camera that is good and bad in different areas.
The Huawei phones , take some amazing images , in some instances far better than both iphone and pixel imo(also some not perfect) , , even my old galaxy has given me some really amazing cool pics , but like all cameras it is not great everywhere either .
sometimes they are pretty so so , just like all smartphone cameras.
it does seem a bit disingenuous to call a smartphone with a weeny lens pro , insinuating its camera is proffesional 😄.
seriously apple .
Good for happy snaps though .

The selfie video test , the iphone is definitely better , a bit surprising the pixel is so bad , however seeing a good footage taken out doors does not mean you will get a good footage in artificial lights.
but in all honesty , even the iphone selfie can while much better , compared to a professional dedicated camera or even some other smart phones , id give it a 7.5 out of 10 .
The pixel id give 5 out of 10 for that result , it is pretty bad.

Totally agree with the review here. My main concern is that no one seems to speak on the motion blur issues of the iPhone 11 line at all however. Anything moving faster than a simple walk the iPhone can't take a fast enough photo to eliminate motion blur in any photo mode. The pixel 3 and 4 can. Intake photos of animals and kids all the time and every iPhone I've used including the 11 motion blur and it's terrible. The pixel 3 and 4 no issues.

iPhone 11 pro max wins. My phone never has that issue where it does not focus on the rim of the glass. And if you're comparing 2 phones then you have to take a good pic with both phones and not take a pic where one of the phones came out blurred and then compare it. Those things happen with any phone..

Very good comparison. Keep in mind that the Iphone 11 Pro does not yet have deep fusion. When you have it with IOS 13.2, it will be much better in detail, surpassing the pixel in environments with intermediate light.

Mate the pixel photos look alot cooler than the iPhone ones. I don't know what images your looking at in comparison. The iPhone has the warmer images. It's opposite to what you have said.

I'm confused because you mentioned the warmer color profile on the pixel 4 but then proceeded to show image samples where the iphone was definitely warmer. I've watched a ton of reviews and it seems like in some instances the iphone produces warmer shots, in others the pixel produces warmer shots. This is a toss up.

Guys, you really should fix that annoying encoding problem in your videos. It flickers every few seconds, in every video you upload.

wow pixel has more detail and astrology mode look at the stars apple can't do that. I much prefer the realness of the pixel to the saturated apple pics. Of course, being mac they are going to choose apple. Well let me put it to rest, many prefer google. i called 3 stores and stopped in and some were iphone users who said pixel is more amazing. The ultrawide is not God. If you actually zoom in on the ultrawide on bigger screen, it looks dim and pixelated. By the way, Samsung had it first, Apple should change its name to Ketchup and use a pic of Huntz as its not worthy of Heinz. Hell, the apple Snow White bit has more power than they ever will. I will admit the video is amazing but still off on color. You can't use night mode on ultra wide or selfies and they bought it off Google. I also am tired of Apple users thinking their richer and can pay more. If that's the case, make a better phone and do something Android hasn't done before. I won't hold my breathe though.

@Peter Armstrong They can fix this in software - is there anyone else complaining about this besides us? Dan? It literally makes the subject look peachy-gray and 2d. ( I will say that the selfie camera on the pro is SLIGHTLY better if you turn off HDR which is at the top of the screen when using the front facing cam.)

I don't get why you are running the Pixel 4 against the iPhone 11 Pro, a phone that costs almost double the price instead of the iPhone 11. Don't get me wrong, I'm an iPhone user and prefer IOS but at least compare like for like especially when the major differences between the 11 and 11 pro is the camera and display

Dude at 5:14 (subway station) the photo taken on Pixel is a lot COOLER than the one on the left (from iPhone). Same for the next photo where you talk about highlights: lamps, walls and ceiling are BLUE on the right. I've watched this video on a non-Apple screen and on an iPhone to be sure that this was not caused by my displays
Phillip Tsirigotis
Phillip Tsirigotis - 22 days ago
I noticed the exact same thing. You can clearly see iPhone produces warmer images and when not they're both on the cooler side. Pixel 4's sample photos shown in the video are not warm other than like 1. Would love an explanation or more sample photos to prove the claims.

No matter how much better the Pixel gets, I bet MacRumors won't admit in their videos that the Pixels are better. What a waste of a comparison video.

Uh....I think everyone on planet Earth knows that the Pixel does not and will not have a better video camera....I really don't think that's a comparison worth talking about. If you want the worlds best video camera on a phone....get the iPhone hands down. Of you want the worlds best still picture camera? Get the Pixel...hell get any pixel, Google has that locked down. Great video and comparison. I love when people compare iPhone and Pixel phones since the iPhone is really Google's competition. Folks who continue to compare Android phones to Android phones are really just wasting time. Google only looses money when you buy an iPhone. They make money on every other smartphone using Android.
MacXpert74
MacXpert74 - 22 days ago
For video it's clear that the iPhone is the best. The Google being the best or still photo's on the other hand is much more debatable. It sure has it's strong moments as demonstrated in this and other videos. But there are still plenty of moments where the iPhone actually pulls of the better shot. The lack of a wide-angle on the Pixel 4 is already a significant limitation. So unless you don't care for video at all and don't like wide-angle shots, I would definitely say that the iPhone 11 Pro is the overall better camera phone.

They are both very close with photos, but when it comes to video recording, the iphone is way ahead. The pixel doesn’t even offer a 4K 60fps option on the front camera. Even the One Plus series takes better videos than the pixel.

I pick Apple I mean come on apple is always going to win when it comes with the ideas for the iPhones like iOS 13 more games hell the new arcade app is on the iPhones like that was a cool and a dark idea for that cause all the games that we had last year and today are boring af and the new arcade just took all the boardness away so ya iOS 👍🏾
Luis Valle
Luis Valle - 23 days ago
A lot of their ideas for the iPhone comes from competitors (Android) dark mode was on Android for the past two OS versions (granted still being in beta), the entire notification center, quick access, arcade mode sound like Samsung's game mode etc. Competition is a great thing. Last year they didn't have nightmode. In one year they developed a nightmode that's on par with Google's.

These so called camera comparisons are very misleading.
Everyone takes pictures done l differently. Some people just point and shoot. Some people take their time focusing and tilting the phone for the right lighting (me) others use the tools that come with the phone and make manual adjustments.
Even when a user takes a photo that user often take several photos and looking through them they select which one is best (me again)
You'd have to be a seriously foolish person to believe some random person's "comparisons" are truthful and accurate.
MacXpert74
MacXpert74 - 22 days ago
@Darryl Bass But you don't have to be led by someone's bias. If you watch a bunch of these comparisons, you'll get a pretty good idea what each phone can do. Everybody finds different things important when it comes to image quality and different modes / circumstances that they take pictures or video in. What's important to you, can only be decided by you yourself. But having many tests available can only be a good thing. You could even watch them with the sound turned off if you don't like to hear the bias of the reviewer.
Ashwani K Jha
Ashwani K Jha - 23 days ago
@Darryl Bass Exactly my thought. I can take 10 pictures where iPhone takes better pictures and declare its better camera. And vice versa. Almost all the tech blogs i have seen do the same.
Darryl Bass
Darryl Bass - 23 days ago
@MacRumors there are indeed tons of videos and I find that people who like iPhones will always find ways to make the iPhone win. People who like Android phones will do the same. Either way it's still foolish to be led by someone's biased opinions. I'm not accusing you by the way, just sayin'.

MacRumors
MacRumors - 23 days ago
I think If this was the only camera comparison out in the world then maybe you have a point but there are tons of videos and different people taking different photos but a lot of their views and opinions line up with ours so maybe we are all seeing the same things? It’s all subjective but people who watch comparisons are not foolish
