Vicky1417, 20 May 2017Not really sure if this test is true. Don't get me wrong S8 has great camera but there are a l... moreit has been revealed and it was clearly shown that c is the s8 and the xperia is the b. why are you convincing your self like you have been so badly hurt with the reality. You even bring your so could personal experience with those devices and YouTube video as an excuse? Well GSMArena is more smarter than you to make such test and the majority of people who have been voted clearly notice it. Sony never made such good camera phone ever since. Even xiaomi phones or other Chinese crap out there is better than Sony on camera despite manufacturing it.
anFan, 20 May 2017If more pixels is a useless gimmick then why did you bought S8 for your wife? Should have give... moreCuz my friend women don't care for hardware they want the prettiest phone. And I'm not arguing in that sense. S8 is the prettiest one out there.

Why the same photo of the review is completely different?

This is identical to the test, it is taken in auto mode, as most buyers will take most photos in auto mode. If you want to capture the moment you sometimes don't have the luxury or patience to fiddle with manual mode. Sony seems incapable of creating a good auto mode.

I dont know why, but in full sized photo, phone B is better because of its natural picture. In one or two photos i voted with phone B because i liked the colors i saw there. But its a shame for sony because they cant be the best...
ReliableX, 19 May 2017At the end of the day, most people actually love their photos a little bit saturated and unnat... moreYes, S8 got a well deserved victory. And people love saturated colors. Two well mentioned points.
But, the pattern of the blind was incorrectly interpreted by S8's camera and that is my problem. Information captured should not be faulty. Color variation is fine and is personal preference,but object capture is something that cannot be compromised upon. It is the very definition of a good camera. Since S8 won in every other scene, I am fine with excusing S8 for the blind scene.
Also, a reference realistic image will help people judge just how much over saturated / undersaturated the colors are, the detail preservation, noise, artifacts introduced etc. People who still want a saturated image will go for that, reference image or not. It will not affect anybody's buying decision but still be a good comparison point for camera buffs such as I.

Cameras are cameras, smartphones are smartphones. They do different things, because you can't produce a Geographic Channel-like film with a smartphone, but neither can you do VR with an A9000
Lol many were saying that phone c is xperia :-D
Very high hopes from sony :-D :-P,but sorry to say Samsung is way ahead as usual :-P
Now waiting for HTC U 11 vs S8 comparison. As the remaining two, Xperia and G6 have been knocked out. Or, better to say Xperia got knocked out. Because as gsmarena said, difference between G6 and S8 image quality isn't as big as different in number of votes. But still.
Shame on Sony. I thought reduction in pixels count may have improved the low light performance, but as a keen observer of z series I'd say the 23MP sensor on Z5 and XZ performed better.

If the people here don't like seeing Sony people praise their favorite phone, then let them be.
Nobody stopped you from choosing your winner, so you must give them as well the freedom to pick their personal winner.
You are telling bad about Sony fans as if you and other fans and haters are angels from heaven and Sony fans are evils.
Anonymous, 20 May 2017Hi, why there is a difference between blind test and the dxomark...? Which one is close to re... moreThe difference between dxomark and gsmarena is that the blind shootout from gsm is more general, no specific tests are being done; while dxomark test each components of the camera such as details exposure, colors rendering, noise, video, and etc..., and then they give an overall score for it.
Anonymous , 20 May 2017Why does Sony camera do better than the camera on their phone?Because cameras are cameras, and phones are phones.
I never saw a smartphone beat a DSLR or any type of big sensor camera, not even the best of the best flagship camera phone.
If I would pick the one that's closest to high end cameras, it would be the Nokia 808, but it's not a true smartphone, just got a touch screen. Lumia 1020 is remarkable, but MS Windows Mobile sadly stopped the support for it.
Smartphones have come a long way in photography, but a lot has still to be desired. Even the winner of this blind test would easily break apart in comparison to say a Sony A9000 or Canon 70D.
XZPoor Camera, 20 May 2017this test doesn't really shows whose the best
it shows whose the worst,Because people like you only see bad things.
Think positive dude. Not saying thinking bad things must not be done, but doesn't mean there's nothing good in this life.
You can hate Sony all you want, but I hope your hatred to them will not end up to a very negative and salty mental attitude in real life. Cheers and peace :-3
ReliableX, 20 May 2017I have one question for you. If the XZ Premium won, would you still say that GSMArena fake the... moreIt is not a fake that they did the photos testing. I do think that what they did here is credible. However, the results that gsmarena provided is only a pinch of salt or don't go into the specific. Hence, there are others such as dxomark that specializes in this field; even dxomark admited that Sony didn't do good with the noise reduction and artifacts. This seems to be Sony weakness when it comes to the camera or their phones.

When the XZP low light performance is bad, then it's bad. There's no need to fake it.
