The fast sensors can yield 1.55-micron pixel size and this is what enables the Google Pixel smartphone camera to take good photographs even in low light.

Another thing that makes the Google Pixel smartphone camera perhaps the best in the world is that it has the shortest capture time of any smartphone camera ever tested. It practically has no shutter lag when you’re taking photographs even of highly active objects or subjects such as a waterfall, the bee buzzing over a flower or a kid playing football in the park. The HDR function is always on. Once the images have been captured, the Google Pixel smartphone can process them twice as fast as the fastest smartphone in the market and a big contribution also comes from the faster Snapdragon 821 chip and 4 GB RAM.
