The 52mm camera of iPhone 7+, X and Xs is isocell...
3 of 4 cameras of Xperia 1 are isocell.
Many of the 48Mp used by cheap midranges are isocell. While better midranges of same brands use exmor..
One of old HTC flagships had isocell.
Many of 8Mp out there are Samsung and omnivision
TBH picture quality these days is good enough that the normal consumer would be pressed to find the differences. Flagship Samsung sensors have usually been on par with Sony's but Samsung doesn't sell them to other manufacturers until recently the GN1 was strangely reserved for vivo and not Samsung themselves. What's more interesting to see is midrangers getting better in the camera department such as the Mi 10i. Fitting a 1" sensor in a phone is still a pipe dream, only Panasonic did once. If Samsung could achieve this, I applaud them.
Anonymous, 09 Jan 2021Yet the quality of Xperia 12mp camera is bad compared to Note 20 ultra desptie some readout gi... moreI'm pretty sure the S20Ultra is priced higher, so the Xperia 1 & 5 II are most likely competing with S20+ and S20. Honestly the camera on the S20+ is worse than the OnePlus 8 which is saying something. I've compared both in person, in terms of overall look. Yes, the main lens. Now, coming to the Xperia it can do 4K 120fps video which the Samsung can not. It's because they are going for different things. Sony is going for speed, such as 20fps, faster and better AF. Just look at the disaster S20 series are in AF. It's more about reliability on Xperia and speed, whereas Samsung is targeting higher output in details and zoom.
On the flip side S20 has much better zoom, more details on photographs (though colour accuracy is questionable at times) and an amazing night mode. It's about preference at this point, the more competition there are more companies innovating.
So continue using your smartphones and don't pick on brands that you dislike. This is worse than play station Vs Xbox.
It's great Samsung is innovating their own way and Sony their own. Hopefully it means better cameras in smartphones for the masses, rather than iterative upgrades.
Both do need improving, Samsung with its cracked camera glass, slow read out speed and colour science. Sony with night mode, zoom and higher MP.
Big year for their cameras?! Just like last year, when their S20 ULTRA could not even focus? Could not even take proper shots without being blur. Samsung is a joke, no one trusts them anymore. We dont even have expectations, we just know its gonna be more of the same, if not, a bad problematic product
Anonymous, 09 Jan 2021Samsung sensor is great, but sometimes useless. They just wasting their time and money on this... morenot necessarily a 200MP sensor using a 4x4 array can capture more light than a 12MP sensor, and no telephoto is needed, as a 200MP sensor can take photos up to X7 without much loss
AnonD-973296, 09 Jan 2021then where does the ISOCELL sensor come in all this?ISOCELL is a technology of sensor, not the software that uses it or combines the pixels. It's a combination of several construction features patented by Samsung.
The combination of pixels is being called "tetracell" or "nonacell" (four or nine pixels binned as one).

RAW is used to check how good sensor is.
You want a much smaller sensor to do better ? LOL ...
How about we ask a Sony RX100 to beat A7R4 ?
Anonymous, 09 Jan 2021Note 20 ultra has one of the best cameras on the market. Enough said!!
They only messed it up... moreS20 Ultra has a 72mm2 sensor, while S20 has a 43mm2.
S20 Ultra should easily outperform S20 in image quality.
It does not.
Maybe 3% better, should be 50% better.
Anonymous, 09 Jan 2021And that guy clearly said it's worst among flagships.... Stop taking things out of context. How am I taking it out of context? I know he was referring to the Xperia 1ii and Xperia 5ii. That much is obvious. The readout compared to every other smartphone is faster.
Anonymous, 09 Jan 2021The resolution of the resulting images won't be 200 MP.The will probably be 2x2 binned or 4x4 (or maybe 3x3? But i don't know bout the funal resolution). The 2x2 will produce in 50mp result and 4x4 will produce 12.5mp ish. But you can enable the maximum resolution, with slower processing, nigger file size and usually worse low light capability as the trade of.

Anonymous, 09 Jan 2021Have you read reviews?I've seen reviews done by actual photographers. The Art of Photography is a really good unbiased reviewer when it comes to cameras on smartphones or just cameras in general. Most reviewers aren't as knowledgeable compared to actual photographers.
