Popular vlogger Marques Brownlee, who has 13 million subscribers on YouTube, has conducted a big blind test of smartphone cameras. Brownlee took identical test photos of sixteen actual models and shared the results with subscribers.
Surprisingly, the freshest, coolest, and most expensive Apple flagship – the iPhone 12 Pro Max – lost in the first round, losing to the OnePlus 8T.
In turn, the latter lost in the next round to the Samsung Galaxy Note 20 Ultra, which had previously defeated the Google Pixel 4a.
In another pair of contestants, the most democratic Apple representative – iPhone SE – lost to Moto Edge +.
But the triumph of Moto Edge + did not last long – in the next round, the smartphone lost to the Huawei Mate 40 Pro, which had previously bypassed the Poco F2 Pro.
The Google Pixel 5 defeated the OPPO Find x2 Pro, while the original LG Wing with a rotating screen lost to the Asus Zenfone 7 Pro.
Another big original – the Surface Duo smartphone-book – lost to the much more affordable Sony Xperia 1 ii.
In the battle of the Chinese flagships Xiaomi Mi 10 Ultra and OnePlus 8 Pro, the representative of Xiaomi won.
In other quarterfinals, Asus Zenfone 7 Pro beat Google Pixel 5, while Sony Xperia 1 ii lost to Xiaomi Mi 10 Ultra. In two semi-final battles, Xiaomi Mi 10 Ultra laid the Samsung Galaxy Note 20 Ultra on the shoulder blades, and users liked Asus Zenfone 7 Pro more than Huawei Mate 40 Pro.
And now, in the final battle, completely unexpectedly, the victory was won not by the favorite DxOMark Mate 40 Pro, but by Asus Zenfone 7 Pro, which had never topped such ratings of the best smartphones in terms of shooting quality. By the way, the fastest Android smartphones in November were also selected yesterday.
