So, it turns out that the Huawei Ascend P7 excels at taking panoramas, topping this category! It produces pano images of very high resolution – our sample below clocks in at over 55 megapixels – and the stitched photo contains excellent fine details. Putting individual images together is also executed really well.
Panoramas made with the Oppo Find 7a don't look quite as good, but are still pretty usable and of high resolution. However, the software can't seem to be able to filter out moving objects and to stitch image pieces together seamlessly, which produces unwanted errors in the frame. Moreover, the Find 7a won't capture more than a 180-dergee field of view, while the P7 can easily snap a full 360-degree shot of your surroundings.
The Galaxy S5 stitches photos well and produces a very high-resolution, high-quality image that is a pleasure to admire, but the fine details in its panoramas don't look as good as in the panos from the P7. Apple's iPhone 5s also takes gorgeous panoramas, as you can see in the image below. The resolution of its shots, however, isn't as high: the S5's panos weigh in at over 60MP, while the iPhone's are of about 25MP.
As for the other handsets, the HTC One (M8) produces unwanted accordion-like artifacts where its pictures connect, not to mention that the image's colors are just way off. The Sony Xperia Z1 isn't good at all as its panoramic photos are stitched poorly and just don't look good. But the most disappointing results came from the LG G2. Its panoramas are so bad that they are practically unusable.
