Google Pixel phones have established a sizeable user base in the U.S., and one reason contributing to this rising fame is their AI-based photography features.

Google Pixel 6 series incorporates several new features, but its most hyped feature is ‘Magic Eraser’ which was incorporated inside Google Photos. This is the equivalent of Samsung’s Object Eraser that debuted with the Galaxy S21.
