The Magic Eraser tool is one of the best features in the Google Pixel 6, Pixel 6 Pro and Pixel 6a phones, not to mention one of the most heavily marketed. But if you own a recent Samsung device you can join in the fun too — because Samsung has its very own version of this popular photo-editing tool.
