Apple just launched the iPhone 12 and Google the Pixel 5. While the $829 iPhone 12 is more expensive, on paper both phones have a similar setup in terms of cameras. Each phone has a main wide-angle camera, an ultrawide-angle camera and a wide selfie camera. We took both phones out and took dozens of photos and videos to see how they stack up against each other.
