Spoilers ahead! Voting is now closed, but you can still go to Page 2 and pick your favorites with a mind clear of brand preconceptions and promises. Below the phones behind the letters A, B, C and D are revealed as well as the winners.
There were a lot of correct guesses in the comments, well done readers! It was the Apple iPhone 6s Plus, which was behind the label 'A', 'B' was the LG V10, 'C' - the Microsoft Lumia 950 XL and finally, 'D' - the Samsung Galaxy Note5.
The LG V10 (B) scored decisive victories in day time photography, taking 60% of the vote on #1 and 75% on #2. The Samsung Galaxy Note5 (D) placed a distant second with 24% and 13% respectively, almost losing out to the Lumia 950 XL (C) in #2.
The LG V10 (B) adds another prize to its growing collection with an overwhelming 83% of the vote. The other three didn't break 10%. The Galaxy Note5 (D, 9%) and Lumia 950 XL (C, 7%) were again pretty close to each other.
The LG V10 (B) is closing in on a flawless victory, it was even more dominant with 87% of the vote. The Galaxy Note5 (B, 9%) remained stable, while the Lumia 950 XL lost quite a bit of ground.

We brought back the LG V10 because it performed so well last time, but this time it was even more dominant.
Still, our head-to-head article (to be published very soon) focuses on the other three - the Apple iPhone 6s Plus, the Microsoft Lumia 950 XL and the Samsung Galaxy Note5. It will be about more than the camera, examining the screen, the battery life and chipset performance.

This is a blind test. Participants were mostly blind. V10 is overexposed and grainy in my opinion.
