Camera blind test results: Pixel, S8 and iPhone are top, while LG, HTC and Sony flop

0 85

The overall principle hasn’t changed since our last blind test. The Xperia XZ Premium and the HTC U11 were added as challengers this time around. The expectations for the Sony smartphone were high given its breakthrough DxOMark rating and that Sony is the market leader in image sensor technology.
We’ve captured and then cropped the same scenes with each of the six smartphones, each with their factory settings, apart from setting them to their maximum resolutions and to automatic mode. To provide a reference shot, we’ve also taken the same photos with a Canon DSLR. Then, we invited everyone to vote for the best in each category.
The smartphone with the most votes in a category got six points. Second place got five points, third place got four points, and so on. In the case of a tie, both phones received the points that corresponded to the respective place, but the next place was omitted.

The results
For the two new contenders, the Xperia XZ Premium and U11, the results were more (Sony) or less (HTC) a huge disaster. While the U11 made it to third place twice, the Xperia XZ Premium only made it there once – all other times these two were either in last or second to last place.
The overall top spot was won by the Google Pixel, closely followed by the Galaxy S8 and iPhone 7 Plus. Trailing behind a bit were the HTC U11 and LG G6, while the Xperia XZ Premium fell flat in last place.
1st place, 20 points: Google Pixel
2nd place, 18 points: Samsung Galaxy S8
3rd place, 16 points: Apple iPhone 7
