Final words


So that wraps up our blind comparison.

The iPhone won two rounds, the Note - also two, while the Pixel grabbed wins in a whopping six rounds.

Interestingly, the Pixel did not do as good as the iPhone or the Note during daytime, as those two phones split the wins for daylight shots, but it dominated when it came to low-light photography, and also did a great job for selfies.

At the end of the day, the Pixel 3 walks out as the big winner of this blind camera comparison, while the iPhone and the Note split the second place.

Were you surprised by these results? And did you end up voting for your personal favorite?
