Why left SONY Z5/Z5PREMIUM out off the picture. Afraid it will smash the competition. Or they already accepted the result from the DxO Mark certification as king of camera among the rest of the high end flagship smarthphones.
A iPhone 6S Plus- Warm colors all the time with good dynamic range.
B Microsoft Lumia 950 XL- Highest resolution seen with great white balance.
C Samsung Galaxy Note5- Super warm pictures with great detail and high sharpening.
D LG V10- Great in daylight but noisy at night.
igornov, 18 Jan 2016I don't like these camera shootouts because it seems like most of the people just vote for wha... moreWell it's stated in the italicized paragraph under the phone collage than an assigned letter will refer to the same phone, so they didn't shuffle the order in every test
igornov, 18 Jan 2016I don't like these camera shootouts because it seems like most of the people just vote for wha... moreAgreed, while B was the best in most categories, in videos daylight it was way too sharp, which to me means it's the LG V10, and people chose that one. I have the G4 and it's over sharp when taking videos (doesn't look good).
I can see many of those pics have that distinctive oil painting effect...
I don't like these camera shootouts because it seems like most of the people just vote for what looks the sharpest, without actually looking at the full resolution pictures, and disregarding far more important aspects of the picture, like noise reduction, processing, color accuracy, etc.
Also, to all the people trying to guess which device is A,B,C,D I am pretty sure GSMArena scrambles the letters in each picture, so don't try to say on device is a certain letter, unless you are talking about a specific pic.
sohail shafayat, 18 Jan 2016neverB is better than anything we've seen from the N5 or V10...must be the Lumia. Damn I wish the app gap wasn't as bad as it is...
I wish people would look better at "full size" shots in #5 - Best night time video. (C got obviously best details/least noise). It's a bit shame for #5, but overall it's Lumia time. Its hdr is real also a lot of details. As for other phones the best to recognise: blurry S brand, then #5 indicates V one, lastly one with cool colors, bit of hdr, thats probably apple. Really, 100times better than comparison of lab shots.
I own a Lumia 950 XL and B looks very similar to the results I'm getting. If B is not a Lumia, I may have to eat my hat. I would really like to see a direct comparison between these smartphones--plus the Sony Z5--recording a low-light, loud concert. As far as I know, the loud volumes tear a hole in the audio on any other than the top-of-the-line Lumias. iPhone recordings I've seen and heard sound tinny and have distorted bass. The full-range, zero-distortion audio plus the superb low-light video are getting my musician friends gigs.
i think GSMArena should change phone picture numbers for each picture to get best result.
i mean for example lumia must be, A in picture 1, D in picture 2, C in picture 3, B in picture 4, D in picture 5.
