Which Pixel Camera
is right for you?

Photographs are memories, art, a unique point of view, and sometimes a way to say something that words can’t adequately express. That’s why the Google Pixel team puts so much into making a great camera on a smartphone. But it’s not just about specs and stats – although Pixel’s are impressive – it’s about lowering the barriers to entry for pro-level photography and providing AI-powered features like Magic Eraser and Night Sight. While all Pixel phones are equipped with excellent cameras and supporting software, they’re all a little different. Compare below to see which one is right for you.
