For those of us who have been using iPhone’s for many years it’s hardly news that the iPhone is just about the best smart phone on the market, and now it seems like a former Google executive agrees, Vic Gundotra made a post on his personal Facebook account that quickly got leaked. He seemed very positive in regards to the camera of the iPhone 7 Plus (which takes great pictures) in the post he made on Facebook he had this to say:
“The end of the DSLR for most people has already arrived. I left my professional camera at home and took these shots at dinner with my iPhone 7 using computational photography (portrait mode as Apple calls it). Hard not to call these results (in a restaurant, taken on a mobile phone with no flash) stunning. Great job Apple.”
After being questioned by someone on his post he had the following response:
“Bottom line: If you truly care about great photography, you own an iPhone. If you don’t mind being a few years behind, buy an Android.”
Ouch that has to hurt Google who not long came out with their own smartphone called the “Pixel”
The iPhone 7 Plus is capable of taking professional grade photo’s with it’s Bokeh effect feature (called “Portrait Mode” by Apple themselves)
With the iPhone 7s, 7s Plus and the iPhone 8 all rumoured to be announced in September, you can bet that Apple will be making the camera even better, in fact their have been leaks that point towards the iPhone 8 having a 3D sensing camera and AR features.
Another leap forward is the potential of a VCEL (Vertail-cavity surface-emitting laser system) for the rear camera which would enable a much speedier autofocus when capturing an image.
It seems that even ex-employees of the competition are fans of the iPhone, in fact this isn’t the first time that other companies have been caught out with employee’s using iPhone’s, just last year the former Google CEO Eric Schmidt admitted that he used an iPhone as his personal phone, and Samsung’s chief strategy officer Young Shon admitted that he used an iPhone, iPad’s and Mac’s at home. It appears that even the competition prefer Apple products just like the majority of us in the Apple camp.
