Hey all,

Although i haven't found any reviews after today's Google event with test pictures. theverge.com has " the first images from the new Nexus 5X and 6P camera". I'm unsure of the EXIF data on these, but its a start... enjoy!

I hope that was a really early pre-production unit because that's not very promising for all the hype they pumped at the event.

The bench one isn't focused properly.

The night time cityscape has a ton of noise and poor focus.

One thing I noticed is that the black strip's edge was really sharp and odd looking.

Looks pretty good to me. I don't think it will be anywhere near S6 though. The selfie camera on S6 Edge is unreal. It makes you look better than you actually look in real life which I'm assuming is part software too lol.

Compared to the crap that other Nexus devices shot these look quite good. Are they Note 5 quality? No. I don't think they are bad though in the slightest.

These photos are great. For the bench photo, it was simply focused on the grass instead which is as easy as touching the screen to change focus.

haha that's exactly what my wife kept saying about the G4, the selfie camera on the G4 imo is better than the Moto X Pure and the OPT.

I thought the pictures above were fine.
As long as it's better than the G4 like some reviewers have mentioned I'll be happy

I'm looking at the pictures on my iMac at work and I have the brightness pumped up just to see how good they are... I must say, I'm pretty impressed! I'm not sure what kind of quality you guys are looking for but I suggest you go buy a camera at this point. It's a SMARTPHONE first then somewhere down the line it's a Camera as well. Let's not confuse what we're investing our hard earned money into. :)

many of the photos that are going to be posted by Googlers will have filters applied im assuming (all stuff that can be done right in the photos app or snapseed). but for point and shoot, i think they are pretty impressive for the stock nexus camera app which usually isn't up to par.

    I'm still waiting on my 128GB Graphite to come in. The reason I purchased this phone is for the superior SENSOR that this phone has. I am an event photographer (weddings, sweet 16s, bar/bat mitzvahs) and one of my primary criteria for a phone is an excellent camera. I use all professional NIKON equipment on the weekends for my paid work. I rarely carry around this big heavy gear (mostly due to the Lenses) for personal use. I believe the Nexus 6Ps sensor is the biggest breakthrough in cellphone camera technology since HTCs hoopla over their "Ultra Pixel" sensor. HTC had the right idea...just didn't implement it very well. First off the sensor in the Nexus 6P is taken from a design straight out of a sony camcorder. This means it is a physically larger sensor than most cell phones. A larger sensor means being able to have a greater distance between the light pixels themselves. Having a greater distance between these light pixels means less electrical noise or "cross-talk" between them while gathering light. This in translation means less graininess while taking pictures in subpar lighting conditions which is probably 85% of mobile phone picture taking. This is where all the Note5 and S6 users yell out..."hey our camera is better!!" Let me just first state that I'm coming from a long line of Samsung devices (S3, Note2, S4, Note3, Note4) and I thing pictures from these devices were fabulous for the time of their lifespan. The S6 and Note5 also take phenomenal pictures. Looking closely at the pictures, I think Samsung's software is getting n the way too much. The camera app is probably the best around. I'm talking about the over sharpening during the post processing. For a higher megapixel sensor you would think it would produce more detail than the Nexus 6Ps images. This may be true under ideal lighting conditions. But, once lighting conditions are anything but ideal, is where the Nexus 6Ps larger sensor shines. The Samsung software also uses higher ISO levels on average, further exacerbating the visible noise detected, especially around the edges of objects in the focal plane of its images. In conclusion, both phones will give you great pictures, but anyone who really appreciates photography will be able to tell the difference in contrast, detail retention and color reproduction, and will prefer the Nexus 6P.

    Just my $.02

    She has a Nexus 6P, and has taken a few pictures.

    Instagram ones though, so they are compressed but still worth a view. :)

    Camera is looking solid indeed!
