Sure, I'm a fan with several Lumias, but my testing has shown amazing quality. If the V10 is really better, then thank God the standards are getting much higher for all flagships. It would be great to include a test-comparison recording loud, live music. Lumia HAAC audio blows everything away in that regard, including almost all dedicated pro cameras.
marcolero, 23 Jan 2016enjoy your food!My hat needs some teriyaki sauce or something. Yuk! However, being a fan and owner of several Lumia phones, I am very skeptical about this test. I'm looking to borrow friends' flagship smartphones to make my own tests. If those other phones--like the LG--are actually better than the Lumia 950 XL, then I'm just happy that the standards are now so amazingly high. The results amaze me. Anyone dare answer address the audio-recording superiority of the Lumias with HAAC recording? I haven't been able to find a dedicated camera that offers this high-quality audio that's nearly impossible to distort.

AnonD-80967, 20 Jan 2016r.i.p who ever said B was lumia ROFL :D . LG V10 ! LG on Beast mode :)You mean overexposed mode!
Lumia 950XL is still the best! If you look at the full photo and not just the thumbnail.
AnonD-100398, 19 Jan 2016u just answered ur own question Dude..More light means more resolved details etc....ofcource o... moreI think alot of peoples tried to figure out the phone in each pic rather than really look comparatively at each pic.
I honestly think the battle is between lg and the lumia. For me its closer than what the results show.
id really like to see in these test:
1. A dslr photo to be compared with
2. Each phone letter rearranged for each pic
3. Gsmarena giving us their input after each photo.
4. That the last "king of cameraphones" (this case the lumia 1020) be included until it is "beaten" by another device. (Ps I may have missed the article where it was trumped)
I must be in the minority. V10's severely oversharpened image is just ugly. Lumia created the most natural (IMO), albeit underexposed images.
It was very obvious which was what.
Samsung phones have been creating softer images.
LG, similar to Samsung in colors, but much more sharpened.
Apple = 4:3 lower res images.
Then just put whatever else they're testing as the last mystery phone.
gaurravv5, 19 Jan 2016:D :DAll wrong my friend. V10 Takes the crown.
LG = V10
Lumia = V8
Note 5 = V6
iPhone = Horrid V4
AnonD-77443, 19 Jan 2016Well done LG. Its such a shame that the V10 is ruined with its battery life or it could be my ... moreThat's why it has a removable battery. How hard is it to carry around a spare battery and switch it out? To much work apparently. Remember one of the last flagships doing this.
Asbmor, 20 Jan 2016I have a small problom with the result page? Why havent every batch of photos gotten there lis... moreBecause the numbers were so low it didn't matter. Just take the difference and there you go.
V10 also has the only audiophile quality DAC/Amp in ESS Sabre that can drive demanding headphones...
I feel bad for the people who thought that B was the lumia 950XL. Pureview is dead. It got kicked out by almost all of the competition.
Anonymous, 20 Jan 2016I m not surprised that LG v10 is winner that have show great photos BUT I m surprised that its... more1. Manual mode for selfie camera who needs that (I might be wrong)
2.it got dual cameras for selfie so...
the dynamic range ins better in the 950xl. lookat the first photo, in C building behind it is clear. And in B is completely burned... It is the same with some photos.
