  • Next year do a league format instead of knockout stage, so that every phone can be tested in every scenario. Would be more complete! Good video and idea nonetheless !

  • Is there a chance for like a double elimination format in the future? I think this might help the phones that are more consistent with their photos make it further in the competition in case they lose in the 1 style of photo they are weak in.

    • pixel is the most consistent in photos. so that wouldnt change the end result.

    • I think double elimination should be the absolute minimum for a showdown of this nature. One off photo and you’re fully out? That seems almost useless in any true comparison sense.

  • Would you consider doing double elimination in the future? That way the phone's won't be disqualified if they happen to present one scene uncharacteristically worse than usual (or the other phone does uncharacteristically well.) This method introduces bias simply due to the order the pictures are in (for example, if you had done the second photo first, we would probably have different results.) Another great option would be a points system, that way you can focus on different challenging situations, and really get a sense for how well all the phones can handle those situations.

  • This is a great test, but I'd also like to see a similar experiment testing the selfie cameras of these phones, and especially the video capabilities of both back camera and selfie cameras of these phones. Testing both cameras' photo, video, and portfolio/night sight/etc capabilities would be a huge undertaking, but it would incredibly informative.

  • Man, this took me for a trip down memory lane. For 4 semesters during 2006-2008 I was an electrical engineering co-op student at Sony Ericsson (working on/off for a semester instead of going to school). I got to know the camera team pretty well, and I ended up spending most of my time working for them. I took thousands of comparison photos across tons of prototype modules and phones just like this test, and every time we asked folks outside the team what their favorite photos were in a comparison, they always chose the bright, saturated ones. Funny to see how some things don't change.

    • @Tiger FHZL At the time the company preferred us to ship the mobile phone cameras as more 'technically correct' in sharpness, saturation, etc w.r.t. a reference camera (Sony T9 or Nikon D60). I don't know how the manufacturers of today feel. As for me personally after that job, I set my Nikon D80 (lol) to 'Vivid' and tried my best to get great shots straight out of the camera.

    • I have a pixel 3xl that I replaced with a Galaxy s21. After a few weeks I switched back because of how much better the pixel camera is for me. I use my phone a ton at work where I pull it out, hot the power button twice, good mostly still for a second, hit the volume down. The picture is good every time. I'm a factory technician and the camera is one of my best diagnostic tools. The other thing is the night sight works amazingly on my pixel

    • I know this is just an expression of how unlikely it is to actually guess right, even if you know something about cameras. But just for for the sake of completeness: There are 15 "duels", meaning 2^15 (=32768) total possiblities of filling in the brackets. It would certainly be a huge loss business, assuming enough people just fill in the brackets randomly.

  • I'd like to see a points scoring system so phones like the pixel 6 aren't just knocked out straight away. this is definitely more of a hype way to run it but I think you sacrifice good results and get ultimately less useful data by eliminating phones edit: I don't mean line all 16 phones up in a line and compare them all at once. You still do the tournament, you just award 1 point to the winner instead of eliminating the phone. keep all phones for all tests. see which phone gets the most points.

    • @NGC1433 I get your point, but simply awarding 1 point to the winning phone of each matchup and then continuing all phones into the next bracket instead of eliminating phones (which serves no purpose in my view) would improve this test in my opinion. you could then do some sudden death rounds after if there are any phones that are still tied for points at the end, but only if you wanted to. you could just leave the results up and say "x phone wins the low light award, y phone wins the daytime shot award" etc. my main point is there's no need to eliminate phones per round, that only gives you less data.

      DeSincDeSincأشهر قبل
    • @Farhan Shaikh no, I don't mean that. I didn't say compare all 16 at once. I just mean award 1 point and continue ALL phones in the next test instead of eliminating the loser. do all tests on all phones, don't just eliminate them. over enough tests it should produce a clearer winner.

    • @Farhan Shaikh I'd imagine you set up a side-by-side comparison of a photo, starting with A and B. You're asked to vote for your favourite one - - let's say you vote for B. Photo A then gets replaced with Photo C. You vote for either B or C. The one that wasn't chosen gets replaced by B. That repeats until you've gone through all 16 phones. Rince and repeat for the next photo composition, and you've got yourself a pretty comprehensivly ranked list of smartphone preferences.

  • This is probably my favorite video of yours every year. I typically put alot of effort into my photos I take on my photo. You can make any good camera look really good, but this gives me a good idea of which ohone camera I can just pull out of my pocket and snap a good picture on the fly. The OnePlus 9 Pro photo was so nice. The ROG phone was my biggest surprise. I think Pixel and OnePlus being in the finals was the right outcome. Those phones take consistently good photos even when the photographer doesn't know what to do with a camera in their hands.

    • I think it gets less and less interesting as we see the typical patterns form, which Marques pointed out; brighter, sharper, and heavy on the HDR. The cheaper lesser-known phones always win these things as well, which no one expected at first but now isn’t really surprising. In other words, smart phone cameras continue to get better across-the-board but the outcome of this test pretty much stays the same. I think it’d be interesting to see them change it up a bit.

Also, foggy, snowy, or rainy conditions would be really interesting. Sunset might be cool too, though you'd have to take the pics quickly as the light quickly changes.

  • It would be really interesting to see if the winners would be the same if the starting position of the phones is shuffled. In other words, it would be interesting to see how much our decisions were influenced by the combination of the two photos being compared, rather than just the pure quality and appeal of the individual photo. It would remove the error and distortion of perception when comparing two different things. (optical effects like when onecolor seems darker than the other simply due to their background etc.) But of course this would be an ungodly ammount of work, simply not duable.

  • 3:23 to be fair I prefer the B image. Sky definitely has less detail but it's not too overblown, the grey is definitely more natural than the A image from the Samsung that just screams FAKE HDR LIGHT from every pixel. Other colors in the image area also more plasent and less oversaturated (like the red YT button) and the skin looks more natural, in the A image from the Samsung you almost can't tell where the light is coming from bcause of how much the HDR screws up the scene's illumination.

  • I think it would be great for you to add a low light comparison, both inside and out, in one or multiple rounds. Also, rather than having someone hold the phone to take the pic, why not use a stand for the phones. You would have less changes in the images. Granted there would be some subtle changes but not as much as a person holding the phone. Using a stand to hold several phones would also eliminate the subtle changes in lighting when outdoors. Still a GREAT video comparison, just wish there was another option to vote other than Instagram or even Twitter when you used that.

  • The photos in daylight are so similar on most smartphones. The huge different between the smartphones is when you take a picture in dark ambient. Maybe make another test with night photos taken only.

  • I simply take my camera/phone out of my pocket, sometimes focus it, most times I don't. I briefly compose what I want to take a picture of and then just let it focus on it's own and take the picture. The new phone cameras are such a good piece of technology I really don't need anything else.

  • Good test 🚀 It may be even better if two phones compete against each other using all the photos taken, which should remove the “got lucky with the scene” factor. I would like to see double competitions, one for photo professionals only, the other for the general public.

  • I still miss the very early MKBHD camera blind test where it was only 5 phones, but a dozen photos with the same 5 phones, and people had to choose their own favorite across all photos. Each person could blindly find their favorite without being shoehorned into this bracket where majority dictates which cameras go forward. That blind test was far more useful to me, albeit maybe not as entertaining with surprise upsets.

I have the Asus ROG 5 and coming from a Samsung note 9 and the camera on the Asus is great but software is crap and the Samsung on paper has the lesser Camera but the software and app is better to use and gives me better results.. with that said the Asus was worth every penny and i really enjoy the phone hope you do this next year

    • the pro cameras would lose. simple reason, pro cameras need post processing to get the images perfect as you want. phone manufacturers use computational to determine what is most likely good for people.

  • The cameras in phones at this point in time are so universally good, that I am quite confident if you redid this test with the exact same phones but different pictures you would get a completely different winner in each bracket. They’re all good enough to handle any social media usage, which is what the vast majority of people use them for.

    Paul CarpenterPaul Carpenterأشهر قبل
    • Indeed, the differences are marginal. Average user shouldn't care about camera anymore, when choosing a flagship phone. It is basically guaranteed to be good enough for daily use. In 2013 it was a whole different story, with cameras being all over the place in terms of quality.

    • Not convinced. The pixel 5a camera is still seriously underrated.

    • That's for the high-end models maybe, but not for the ones under it. And reviews (pun intended) capture everything. I have a new phone and it's surprisingly good. Far better than I expected. And watching this video and commenting, I saw another phone, that I also have... and to be honest, the photos aren't that great. Photos taking in full day light is a bad experiment. I never forget that I was full surprised by my Galaxy S3 vs S4, and the S4 took far better photos. You really need to judge for yourself.

  • what's interesting to me is the fact that last year the pixel 4a (which has the exact same main camera as the pixel 5a) lost in the first round against the Note 20 Ultra. goes to show just how subjective these results are and that the way a phone wins the blind test really only depends on which other phones it goes up against.

  • You should do a double elimination type bracket. That way a photo gets compared to at least two other photos before being eliminated.

  • I think this was very well done and well narrated too. As for the testing I would agree that a brighter photo would generally get the nod as best,but could that be also affected by an age demographic with older viewers maybe not having as good vision as most younger people? Just a thought and anyway you look at it you guys did a great job. Any future tweaking to your tests would take away from the 'Gut Reaction' as to which we think is best photo. Anyway here's wishing you all continued success in all future endeavours. Cheers ! from Canada's West Coast
