If you don’t know him, MKBHD is one of the most followed youtubers around when it comes to putting the performance of our flagship smartphones through their paces. And in a new video just published on his channel, the videographer invites us to discover the results of a survey to find out which of the most popular models obtains the best scores in photos. To obtain these figures, the questionnaire will have brought together several million Internet users who will be asked to compare one by one the images taken by each device. Without knowing the origin, for more objectivity, even if the figures are not infallible.
Unsurprisingly, we find some of the best-selling mobiles at the top of the ranking. The number one all categories being the Pixel 6A, surprisingly placed just ahead of the Pixel 7 Pro despite the latter being released almost five months later. We can recognize common characteristics such as a twelve-megapixel ultra-wide-angle photo sensor with f / 2.2 aperture, but only the Pixel 7 Pro has autofocus here. The most expensive is a bonus with a telephoto lens of forty-eight megapixels with x5 optical zoom, for very successful macro images.
The Zenfone 9, a choice alternative?
In third position in the ranking obtained by MKBHD, we find the excellent Zenfone 9 from Asus. A “compact” format of 5.9 inches all the same, which can count on a double lens on the back including an ultra wide-angle of twelve megapixels and a wide-angle of fifty megapixels. No telephoto lens here though, which to him “loses versatility“despite results”correct” according to our real-world beast test.
In its version with only 8 GB of RAM and 128 GB of internal storage, the Zenfone 9 comes down to 799 euros without taking into account the various promotions of the moment. It is a price all the same more interesting than that of the Pixel 7 Pro (899 euros) but more expensive than for a Pixel 6A (459 euros).
Apple in bad shape
Finally, let’s also mention the case of the iPhone which, unsurprisingly, classifiesiPhone 14 Pro as the most effective of his collection here. But this does not mean that the score is the most honorable, since the mobile sold from 1,329 euros only finishes seventh. On the back, Apple has integrated a forty-eight megapixel lens, an ultra wide-angle and a telephoto lens. As a bonus, a fourth sensor, the LiDAR, is there to improve the focus of portraits in low light conditions.
