Google claims Pixel 2 has the best camera, just like the first Pixel  

Google was quick to brag about the original Pixel's camera prowess last year, and it's continuing with that confident stance now that the Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL are here. Both phones use the same 12-megapixel rear camera, and have received an unprecedented overall DxOMark test score of 98 -- that's four points higher than the previous leaders, the Galaxy Note 8 and iPhone 8 Plus. If you ask Google, it's a combination of the hardware with its computational intelligence.

The key for most is that it pairs Google's existing software-based stabilization with optical stabilization -- that should lead to fewer blur-free shots and less noise in low light. Rival phones tend to only use one stabilization method at a time. You can also expect quick autofocus through dual-pixel phase detection, and a portrait mode that creates DSLR-like soft backgrounds using only one camera (whether it's the back camera or the front 8-megapixel shooter). You don't need dual cams or a depth sensor here, folks.
