How Good Is the Google Pixel 7's 'Unblur' Photo Technology?

We have gotten to the point where smartphones can create professional-quality photos in a wide array of situations. Google's Pixel 7 and Pixel 7 Pro phones offer some of the best cameras available, and one of their most interesting features is "unblur," which promises to use advanced tech to literally remove the blur from things like faces in photos where the shutter speed was too slow or the subject was moving too much. How well does it actually work, though? This awesome video review takes a look at what you can expect. 

Coming to you from Tom's Guide, this great video review takes a look at the new Google Pixel 7 and Pixel 7 Pro camera features, including the "unblur" feature. This feature is more advanced than simple sharpening, as it leverages machine learning to fill in missing details. I think it is particularly neat that it even works on photos not taken on the phones, meaning it can give a nice quality upgrade to old smartphone images and the like. Certainly, no matter what phone you carry in your pocket, it is neat to see just how advanced they are becoming and to know that you always have such a powerful tool with you. Check out the video above for the full rundown.
