And 'slightly raised above the body, the design does not convince everyone, but there are still many supporters.
Google has worked to improve the camera software, improving the processing of the images. The white balance has been improved with new algorithms. These should allow you to adjust the color in an intelligent manner, in particular in the case of scenarios of "difficult" interpretation. Take, for example to a completely snowy place, or where different shades of white fill the environment.
