Former Microsoft executive calls iPhone the best smartphone

This process often takes considerable time and in many cases for smaller companies or less popular smartphone models, they'd often choose to abandon updates entirely for users.

Vic Gundotra, who was largely responsible for the failure called Google+, has insisted that anyone who truly cares about great photography owns an iPhone, and not an Android.

However, in response to a comment that claimed that Samsung's Galaxy S8 has an even better camera, Gundotra claimed that, in his opinion, this is not the case - and, most notably, that Android is the problem. The iPhone 7 Plus has a dual-camera setup - 12-megapixel + 12-megapixel - on the rear wherein one is a wide-angle lens while the other is a telephoto lens.

"S8 doesn't have dual lens camera if u see the results in the web comparing iPhone 7plus portrait vs S8 bokeh mode it's clear that Apple uses depth map with the help of machine learning and it gets better and better. the S8 and pixel uses normal edge detection to blur out the background which is not ideal doesn't get better on use also you see weird blurred out spots in your photo". Apple had previously struggled during iPhone 7's Beta launch to promote the portrait mode to customers. The company's flagship smartphone release has been rumored to include a vertical dual-camera system that could produce higher-quality images and potentially help support enhanced augmented reality support in iOS 11. "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)". Google's own Pixel once held the top spot, to be surprisingly displaced by the HTC U11. The reason why the aforementioned phones made the cut, is because, simply put, they are quite brilliant phones as far as photography is concerned. According to Google, only 11.5 percent of phones are running Nougat, the latest version of Android. He is best known for his work at Microsoft's Windows team.

Gundotra claims that Android is hindering photography innovation, because it's "an open source (mostly) operating system that has to be neutral to all parties".

Here is the problem: It's Android. "This sounds good until you get into the details", Gundotra says. That's why Android phones seem to be plagued by a "confused and bewildering" mix of photo applications.

Now, there's nothing wrong with this new change, at least for those using the Google Pixel and Pixel XL. Apparently, users of the South Korean electronics titan's mobile devices usually have the dilemma of choosing between the brand's propriety camera and the Android camera. Samsung gallery or Google Photos? He then tries to explain that there are issues where API improvements take years to push out to various apps causing innovation to slow. (Google was crushing this 5 years ago - they had "auto awesome" that used AI techniques to automatically remove wrinkles, whiten teeth, add vignetting, etc. but recently Google has fallen back).
