I also have a Pixel XL for work, and a friend and me have been doing our own shootouts between the 2 phones. And pretty much our conclusion is that the Pixel takes better pictures, even in low light. Also we've noticed that the iPhone compresses the images rather heavily compared to the Pixel. The same picture taken on both phones, you zoom in and for instance trees look more like an oil painting on the 7+, and on the Pixel they are more detailed when zooming in the picture. I'm looking for a replacement camera app to use with my 7 Plus. Also hoping one of the 3rd party camera apps would support Portrait mode. I am debating between buying either Camera+ or Procam 4. I ruled out ProCamera because most of the good stuff are "In app purchases". I don't want to pay for the app and then pay more for more things that should have been in the app by default. Does anyone know what percentage does the stock camera app compress the images when it saves the JPG? I noticed that Procam 4 lets you change the jpg compression rate. Does Camera+ do also? I'm looking for opinions on which app is better, Camera+ or ProCam 4? But I do realize that the opinions are subjective.
