9 years of smartphone photography

I just received my brand new Google Pixel 3 and I'm quite excited about it, especially for its camera. It's supposed to be one of the best cameraphone of 2018, at least according to my favourite reviewers:  The VergeLes Numeriques and the tech guru MKBHD.
As I wrote in a previous post, I'm going to review this new Pixel 3 in comparison to the Fujifilm X-E3. But before all that, I wanted to look back on my previous phone's photos to appreciate how good those camera had become.

2009 - HTC Magic

2010 - HTC Legend

2011 - HTC Desire S

2014 - Motorola Moto X

2012 - Samsung Galaxy Nexus

2015 - Sony Xperia Z5 Compact

2016 - Samsung Galaxy S5

2016 - Samsung Galaxy S7

2017 - Samsung Galaxy S8

2018 - Google Pixel 3

Smartphone cameras definitely improved a lot in the past 9 years! Nowadays, I'm almost always happy with the colors and sharpness of a photo taken with my phone (granted there is enough light). It's not yet perfect though: I took the last picture with the Pixel 3 at dawn and there are some noticeable compression artefacts in the sky gradient. This should be easily avoided by shooting in raw but I hope I won't have to do it too often... 🤞🏽
