It's always been Apple. Do you need to ask. Apple is a the top hype and propaganda company around.

Nice trolling. Iphone cameras are the best when it comes to that. Your note saturates and lighted most of the time.

oversaturated, oversharpened photos on the iPhone XS just like any other China OEMs. Yuck

Excluding the Huawei p20 pro from a low light camera test in itself is a photographing and digital sacrilege.

Huawei is prohibited in the US

"Huawei is prohibited in the US" No they are not, they are just not stocked at any of the major carriers. You can buy them in plently of other places in the US.

But there are many posts about p20 pro on this website. It is only iphone marketing campaign post.

Wow note 9 wins all of these from what I’ve seen. So much sharper then the rest.

Where is the honesty in journalism these days? This place is fake news at its best. All they need now is to ban free speech that doesn't go along with their properganda or agenda.

You didn't even manage to insult the correct person.

Why not compare it with the Pixel 3XL? Surely one of you guys can find one by now?

I find this article as a marketing campaign for the new iPhone and not for anything else. Why? Because the author used two iPhones, the older and the new model instead of the P20 Pro or the XZ3. Could you please do a blind comparison between these devices and please exclude the iPhone X because we knew its camera is not on par with note 9, pixel 2/2XL and P20 Pro. There is no point of including it. Thanks in advance.

Thanks for the link. However, I don't find it reliable because the author of that article has an inclination towards Apple. Just read all his articles here. I am just being honest, there are authors here that aren't inclined to a particular brand maybe they were the once suited to do an article.

Ill never understand this. Every time a new iPhone or Samsung comes out the old ones all of a sudden take pictures like they are a flip phone...

The result of a blind comparison will silence both camp of fanboys and will settle the argument of being biased against any phone maker.

Nothing matters without a frame of reference. The authors will call victory for their sponsors and the fanbases for their camps. Without a proper, professional DSLR reference, this will never be a decent comparison.

In that regard note 9 already lost to pixel 2 xl

I don't see anything wrong to give Milen to review headphones, keyboards let's say and leave photography to experienced person. Whoever suits best for the task. Far enough I think.

honestly the xs does a very nice job here. in the dusk pictures i prefer the pixel 2. just for how the whole scene looks. but when darkness sets in the the xs wins. note 9 looks the worst of the bunch just by how much the colour get washed out/ changed

Put on your glasses The xs and the note 9 both did good but, the Pixel did surprise me, it pretty much sucked.
