    Nick Tagataka, 28 Nov 2020I agree, Mi 10 Ultra DEFINITELY deserved to be included in ... moreBarely anyone outside of China has that phone, so it'd be a waste of time to include it in a shootout.

      Here before many fanboys say that their favourite phone was not favoured. There's no way the writers take bad photos intentionally. They might write it unfairly, but photos given, i don't think you can fake it and they shouldn't.

        Kudos for the great review article. It's really interesting when all the flagship phones are compared side by side. One feedback is that I wished the same method used in the portraits section used in the daylight and lowlight sections as well where there is an actual camera photo taken to compare with to better show the difference between camera vs phone camera.

        Great article nevertheless, a great way to close out 2020 phone camera wars

          Direct to the point.

          - Despite the biggest camera, in daylight Huawei was the worst of them.
          - Sony does not use, nor ever will the auto HDR for regular cam app
          - Samsung will never give up on fake colours
          - Apple gives samples worse than last year for main camera.

            deadworms1620, 28 Nov 2020I was comparing the dayight sample shots from your xperia 1... moreYou take a photo.
            Then 10s later you take another.

            There is no guarantee the conditions were the same.
            The amount of light, angle of light, if any cloud was up there for a moment.
            This is why some ppl only do studio comparison.

            Now imagine photo take months later than the previous shot.
            Photos of s20 ultra for example have very strong blue, if they use again it does not mean it will do equaly blue.

              I was comparing the dayight sample shots from your xperia 1 ii review and the daylight samples here and it isnt as underexposed here. I wonder what happened here.

                mars3486, 28 Nov 2020If there is no Xiaomi Mi 10 Ultra then where is Xiaomi Mi 1... moreI agree, Mi 10 Ultra DEFINITELY deserved to be included in this comparison. With the dedicated intermediate 2x telephoto lens and the largest sensor used for 5x periscope camera, it could've been easily the best device for both still photo/video zooming.

                  Using digital zoom for videos and surprised the two without periscope did worse?

                  When you use digital zoom, you no longer has 4K.
                  3840 x 2160 after 2x digital zoom becomes 1920x1080.
                  After 3x digital zoom, it becomes 1280x720.
                  Before you press the shutter, you can easily see on screen the loss of quality.

                  When different FL exist, person nas to adjust the distance between camera x subject.
                  So all can capture exactly same frame.

                    If there is no Xiaomi Mi 10 Ultra then where is Xiaomi Mi 10 Pro in this comparison? You are mistakenly missing phone from one of the 4 world greatest manufacturer. Why?
