Which smartphone is best for photos? Independent tests show that you don’t have to spend a fortune to have a winning model


Which smartphone is best for photos?  Independent tests show that you don't have to spend a fortune to have a winning modelFor many people, the photographic aspects of smartphones are a factor that determines their purchase. Of course, every smartphone manufacturer in most cases claims that their model is truly revolutionary and provides the best photo quality. However, these words are often empty marketing that has nothing to do with reality. So it was decided to conduct independent tests in which users chose the best photographic smartphone we can currently buy.

Marques Brownlee once again decided to conduct a test among users whose task was to indicate the best smartphone for taking photos. Ultimately, one manufacturer dominated the podium.

The tests covered twenty different smartphones, whose names appear in the screenshot below. Photos from three categories were taken into account: those taken during the day, at night, and using portrait mode. On a special website, users chose among all the photos the one they thought was the best in each category. Two random photos appeared on the screen, which were not marked in any way, and then the person selected one of them and so on until all photos were exhausted. Ultimately, thanks to this, a ranking system (ELO) was created, which indicated the best smartphone in a specific field.

Google Pixel 7a and Pixel Fold – the premiere of the long-awaited mid-range smartphone and the first foldable device from Google is behind us

When it comes to daytime photos, the Google Pixel 7a turned out to be the best smartphone. Interestingly, Google Pixel Fold took second place and OnePlus Open took third place. At the very end of the ranking was the Apple iPhone 15, which actually performed the worst in this scenario. The Samsung Galaxy S23 Ultra fared equally badly and took penultimate place. The results are truly surprising, because Apple smartphones are considered by many to be the best for photos and videos, followed by Samsung devices. Unfortunately, both producers failed in this category.

In the second category, i.e. in the case of photos in worse lighting conditions, the Apple iPhone 15 Pro turned out to be the king. So you can see that ultimately the latest generation has its good and weak sides, although if only the first category were taken into account, completely different conclusions could be reached. Right behind the Apple smartphone was the Google Pixel 8 Pro, and then again the Google Pixel 7a. You can already assume which smartphone will ultimately take the lead when it comes to photographic aspects.

When it comes to the last category, i.e. a photo using portrait mode, the best result was Google Pixel 8 Pro, followed by Samsung Galaxy Z Fold5, and then Apple iPhone 15 Pro. The biggest surprise, however, is the Sony Xperia 1 V smartphone, which was the only one that did not cope in this case (the photos were taken several times to check whether it was an error). So we are dealing with a device costing PLN 6.5 thousand. PLN, which was created for taking photos, and yet it can’t even cope with this task. However, if we sum up the entire ranking and take the average score, there are three smartphones on the podium: Google Pixel 7a, 8 Pro and Fold.
