Google Pixel 3 camera APK test. Essential Phone low light selfie performance
11 months 1 week ago #199206
Hey folks (sorry in advance for the rather serious looking selfies) I wanted to test how well the Google Pixel 3 port of G Cam worked on my Essential Ph-1. A phone we can all agree was a bit of a lemon, especially in the camera department. Seeing how Google's Pixel 3 images were looking pretty impressive I was excited to get my hands on Night Sight and see if it could help alleviate any of the phones continuous problems.
A closed room with only 3 Philips Hue light bulbs (gen 3) as the light source, each set to 45% brightness with the colors red (#ff0000) ,blue (#0400ff), and purple (#4a00b2). Philips Hue bulbs can produce a max of 800 lumens at pure white. However I cannot say what they produce at these colors. This somewhat simulates a photo within a darker bar or parts of a night club.
Only front facing cameras were used. As well to keep things on equal footing I used three 2017 devices, a Sony Xperia XZ Premium, Samsung Galaxy S8 and of course the Essential Ph-1. I used whatever auto settings the phones provided and tapped on my face once to ensure exposure and focus.
