    People's comprehension in the comments is so sad lmao everyone thinks big flagship brand phones are garbage because they lost but apparently weren't listening when Marcques said it wasn't about the quality of the photo...the people chose the more processed-looking photo...In reality, you shouldn't want a camera that takes photos that manipulate your natural photos, all of that you're supposed to do yourself...People just want a nice photo without doing any of the work. So big brands = more natural, freedom for editing, cheaper brands = the photo is already Instagram ready...

    There is a disconnection between youtubers who are camera enthusiast and regular people, we just want a photo that's detailed an slightly more colorful than reality while remaining natural.

    no matter how many tests you do, IPhone fans will still say androids are trash and the only phone that has a good camera is iPhone. That's what pisses me off, I'm sure Iphones are great, it's the fan base that I hate.
    And it's great that you didn't reveal the names for the pictures because most bias iPhone users would of picked iPhone regardless, that's how tunnel minded alot of them are.

    In my opinion, Iphone photo looks bluish and unnatural though sharp, it look like it has blue filter on(effect).. and in photos, shadows means dark photos = bad camera

    Just like the blackberry thought the threading of your jacket was noise n tried to make it up; in the last comparison, the pocophone thought you( @MKBHD) were the noise n also tried to make it up

    I guess it depends more on the screens that the voters are viewing these pictures on...and if a lot of people are on cheaper screens then the pumped up images would stand out...because on a cheaper screen detail wouldn’t show up anyway

    This is a preference competition, the general mass doesn't care about detail. The general masses care about brightness and saturation, they don't photo edit. So every photo should look like the final. They won't use the extra range the better cameras will provide.
