Galaxy Note 10 vs Pixel 4 XL: Camera(s)
YES. Google finally added a second camera to its phones, but that's it, only two.
Here's where things are starting to get interesting. Both companies are offering more cameras than usual, different cameras, and using neat software tricks. Honestly, the Galaxy Note 10 has more camera "options" but Google's camera software and post-processing is probably the best.
For years Google managed to stay ahead of both Samsung and Apple with just a single rear camera, and even Samsung's triple camera Galaxy S10+ can't beat the older Pixel 3 XL in the camera department, mainly because of Google's software prowess during the processing of images.
So while Google doesn't need 2-3 cameras on the back to compete with Samsung, Apple, or OnePlus, we're glad to see a second camera added, and that Spectral sensor.
Either way, if photography is super important to you the Pixel 4 XL is probably one of your best bets. That said, the Note 10 is no slouch, and we like the new Microphone zoom camera mode.
