In a morning fra of New York, we meet journalists and personalities to be part of the annual event Made by Google. The presentation started on time, everything went smoothly and its representatives talked about how Google wants to be part of our lives. Yes, the same as always.
To save you the analysis of the classic discourse that we hear in each presentation of technology: the well-known phrase your privacy is a priority for us. Apple, Amazon and Google today always say the same. And everyone is unable to prove it. Honestly, I don't believe anyone anymore.
Nobody buys a Pixel phone for their screen or for their last generation Android, but they do it for their camera. And it is in this feature of Pixel 4 that I want to stop.
The most recognized photographers in the world say that the relevant thing about an image is, in this order: object, light, lens and camera body. Google, on the other hand, has replaced this last element with the software.
It is in image processing where Google shines above all phone manufacturers. In fact, the photos that its users get are the result of the mixture of nine images that the team manages to process in the blink of an eye. The end result is really impressive, taking into account that it is a device that fits in a pocket.
Google has abandoned the scheme of a single lens by one of three, to which it added a radar type sensor, which allows the phone to be manipulated only with gestures.
At the time of writing this column, I could not confirm or deny the proper functioning of this attractive feature, but soon I will and share my experience.
