Scene 5: As the sun sets in the park

Scene 6: A selfie!

Scene 7: Architecture

Scene 8: A colorful fence

Scene 9: The ancient church


So... who won?

The results are a mixed bag (as you'd expect with so many great cameras), but some phones do stand out.

The iPhone X won scenes 1, 2 and 8, the Pixel 2 XL won the selfie (scene 6), as well as scene 5, the LG V30 won scene 3 (narrowly beating the iPhone) and scene 4, the Galaxy Note 8 won scene 9 and the OnePlus 5T won scene 7. Unfortunately, the Huawei Mate 10 Pro could not win in any of the scenes.

  • iPhone X - 3 wins
  • Pixel 2 XL - 2 wins
  • LG V30 - 2 wins
  • Note 8 - 1 win
  • OnePlus 5T - 1 win
  • Mate 10 Pro - 0 wins

There is another way of looking at the results, by the number of total votes. So here is the total amount of votes that each phone got:

All in all, the big takeaway is that you cannot quite quantify a camera in absolute figures, but you can look at trends. The iPhone X and the Pixel 2 XL stand out as the big winners in most cases, capturing pictures with color and dynamics that people like. The LG V30 and Note 8 ended up as close runner-ups, while the OnePlus 5T and Huawei's Mate 10 Pro are not quite on the same level as the other phones in this line-up.

Did you end up voting for your favorite phone? Are you surprised by the results? And what would you want to see us test next?
