Does the Pixel 4 shoot better photos than the iPhone 11?

Best answer: Yes. The Pixel 4’s main camera presents better results because the software does so much of the heavy lifting. With manual sliders for both exposure and shadows, users have more control over dynamic range, and Night Sight is elective, rather than a mode that kicks in on its own.

Stay cool and get close: Google Pixel 4 (From $ 630 at Amazon) The Pixel 4 gives good odds on getting a good photo
