IPhone 2G vs iPhone 11 Pro Max
What is the camera of the original iPhone capable of?
In January 2007, Steve Jobs showed the world the original iPhone. The cult smartphone was developed for several years – by the best engineers and specialists. At that time, it was a truly innovative device that incorporated all the revolutionary technologies of that time.
More than 12 years have passed since that moment – how far has the smartphone industry gone? Can the iPhone 2G contrast something with modern flagships?
The author of the iJustine YouTube channel conducted a rather interesting experiment. The girl decided to compare the original iPhone and iPhone 11 Pro Max in a test for the quality of shooting cameras.
But before starting the comparison, let’s examine the specifications of the cameras – to understand how big the difference between the devices is.
The original iPhone was equipped with a camera with a resolution of only 2 MP. There was no flash, as well as autofocus functions. Video recording was also not supported. Really very modest – even by the standards of 2007.
But there are no questions about the iPhone 11 Pro Max. Now it is one of the best "camera phones" on the market – thanks to the camera module with three lenses – wide-angle, ultra-wide-angle and telephoto. Special thanks should be said to software algorithms that actively use the capabilities of artificial intelligence.
Let’s take a look at sample photos.
Admittedly, the iPhone 2G performed well in this test. You can’t even say that smartphones share 12 years of progress. This is also noted by users who leave comments under the video. Of course, images from the iPhone 11 Pro Max are much better – this is especially noticeable in dark areas. But is that why he is the flagship?
