Google has shown that a single camera can do something. Pixel 4a surpasses Xiaomi Mi 9 and iPhone 11 in DxOMark ranking

DxOMark specialists tested the main camera of the Google Pixel 4a smartphone and came to the conclusion that one sensor in the field of multi-module smartphones is a warrior. As noted by experts, the Pixel 4a produces “comparable or even slightly better results compared to the more expensive Pixel 4 in many tests.” The 12-megapixel sensor takes pictures and shoots video quite well, and the final score was largely influenced by the banal absence of other modules, for example, an ultra-wide-angle one.

The advantages of the Pixel 4a camera include quite accurate exposure both when shooting photos and when shooting videos, fast and accurate autofocus, neutral white balance in photos, vivid colors in video both indoors and outdoors, good white balance in night shots.

Cons – limited dynamic range and low detail when shooting photos and videos, failures in the autofocus system when photographing at a zoom, limited depth of field in group portrait photos on the street, errors in determining the depth of the scene for the bokeh effect.

In general, the Pixel 4a’s camera is far from perfect, but for a single sensor it performed very well, beating many multi-camera (and flagship!) Models of the recent past.
