Guys I need some help here. I got an old Iphone SE, I love it but I'm tired of that tiny screen.

What the hell would I compare phones by their cameras???
If I needed an excellent camera I would buy one!!!
I would love to read more of a sense comments about these top phones by Getting down to business, apps, functionalities, practical use security, performance within 2 years of extreme use and the storage capacity to the limits and so on.
Do not just type anything such as good and best camera and think you compared the two, be serious!

Look at the sky against the blue tower picture. The camera matched the sky and the tower on S9. iPhone pictures have much better dynamic range, accurate colors, sharpness.Even the low light pictures (where the S9 should truly win) aren’t much better on the S9. (Variable aperture is a joke). Let’s do a comparison when the new iPhones come out in September. This is S9 vs last years iphone.

just because of brand, apple will be favoured ,, but if u know the true meaning of a flagship, a champion, a performer you won't doubt the s9's ability to degrade the x

Comparing em clearly shows actual result.

Funny how these dumbs r always fooled by igimmicks worth a fortune with less practical features/usability

This is just how comparisons work. And it's excessively doubtful the new iPhone will bring anything substantial to challenge this

S9+ is Awsome. The low light photography is impressive as well as daylight photos portraits and videos

Great in-depth analysis, job well done, thanks very much this.

Every one knows that the google pixl 2 xl cant even stand with the iphone x and samsung galaxy s9+ in almost any field especially camera. However the Samsung Galaxy S9+ has a better camera than the iPhone x for its ability to shift between 2 states for having a better lightning. But now things had changed, and a new phone had taken the trophy of best camera ever which is the Huawei p20 pro with a triple cameras it crushes all cell phones in this cell phones in this field.
