We all know that at the beginning of the smartphone era, cameras were not as important as they are today. a good camera can serve as an asset, on the manufacturers’ side, for customers to purchase a particular smartphone. Hence, recently, an Ex-Google VP said that “If you care about great Photography, you own an iPhone”.
Ex-Google VP: If You Care About Great Photography, You Own An iPhone
At the beginning of the smartphone, cameras were not as important as they are today. Nowadays, a good camera can serve as an asset, on the manufacturers’ side, for customers to purchase a particular smartphone.
But if you consider that your smartphone takes weak pictures, then know what the fault may be not the hardware but Android!
According to Vic Gundotra, the man who created Google Plus, the end of DSLR cameras has arrived for most people. In a Facebook post, Gundotra says he left the professional camera at home and took the photos he presents in the post with an iPhone 7 using a computer mode (portrait mode as Apple designates the feature).
Considering that the photos were taken in a restaurant, such as low light and no flash, the result is simply stunning. Gundotra congratulates Apple!
But Vic Gundotra goes further and says he would never use an Android smartphone to take photos.
When asked if Samsung’s camera-level hardware and Google Photos for backup are the best combinations, Gundotra does not hesitate and states that the problem is really the same … It’s an Android!
But why Android’s fault?
Vic Gundotra says that because Android is an open operating system this should be neutral for all parties (manufacturers). This even seems fine, but when we get into the details then everything changes. Gundotra notes that Samsung smartphones have a confusing and confusing set of photo options. Should I use the Samsung camera? Or the Android camera? Samsung Gallery or Google Photos?
The fact that Samsung innovates at the hardware level (as a better camera) means they have to convince Google to allow this innovation to be considered for other applications through the appropriate API. This may take YEARS. But the biggest innovation is not even happening at the hardware level – it’s happening at the level of computer photography. The tech giant Google has already been at the forefront but has now regressed compared to the competition.
Already in the case of the tech giant Apple, there are all these restrictions. They innovate in the underlying hardware and simply upgrade the software with its latest innovations (such as portrait mode).
Gundotra also responds that if users import with good quality of photography, then they must have an iPhone. Otherwise, get an Android.
Vic Gundotra’s position may seem strange given his links to Google. However, according to information, Gundotra is currently working for a company that is developing a health-related technology for the tech giant Apple’s Watch.
