First photos taken with Nexus 6P show a fantastic camera
The Nexus 5X and 6P are just weeks away from launch, but there are of course those lucky few who already have said devices on hand to share with the world.
Professional photographer Romain Guy has shared a collection of images taken with a Nexus 6P on Full Auto mode with no post-processing tricks. Furthermore, the user claims that all photos were shot in dark or dim settings to show off the low-light capabilities of the phone. Picture quality is very good based on these pictures.
Colors, however, do appear a bit saturated. There is also some noise in each of these photos, which the source claims was due to brightening of the photos with the default camera App. Thus, these pictures must have been even darker in their original takes. Nonetheless, details are captured surprisingly well, especially of the individual magazines and books on the shelf.
Of course, a verdict on camera quality cannot be made based on sources like this. Guy is a Google employee, after all, so these are probably the best pictures the Nexus 6P is capable of under similar conditions. It's worth noting that the Nexus 5X also sports the same 12.3 MP camera with Electronic Image Stabilization, so both should have identical camera quality.
Expect our full review on both new Nexus devices as we move closer to launch.
