It’s a cloudy Tuesday afternoon in San Francisco and I’m outside dodging raindrops to frame a picture of the Ferry Building clock tower. I snap a photo with a Google Pixel 2 and then — a few wet moments later — one with the Samsung Galaxy S9.
A quick peek at the Pixel 2’s photo shows the detail, contrast and excellent dynamic range I’ve come to expect from the phone. When I view the Galaxy S9 picture, it’s crisp, bright and has less image noise in the shadows and clouds. And man, oh man does that Galaxy S9 screen really make the photo pop.
