mountain view - Vic Gundotra, as top manager at Google, added the rise of Android, but the India-born businessman is not talking about the mobile platform. On Facebook he writes that Apple has light years on Google when it comes to mobile photography. 'I would not use an Android smartphone for photography'.
Gundotra is lyrical about the camera in the iPhone 7 and Apple's photo software. As angry Android users point to the paper better camera in the Samsung Galaxy S8, Gundotra responds with a substantive story. According to him, Samsung's camera is subordinate to the software that the camera controls. The underlying techniques are not made specifically for Samsung's camera, which makes it virtually impossible to get the most out of a camera.
Furthermore, Gundotra finds it a disaster to choose the right software. 'Do I need to use Samsung camera app or the default app in Android? Do I need to use Samsung Gallery or Google Photos?' Where Gundotra previously was very critical of Apple, he now seems to look completely different from the business. 'If you take photography seriously, you have an iPhone. If you do not care if you're years back, buy an Android device.'
