iOS Never Again, 04 Nov 2020I can list 100 different points as to why Quadbayer big sensors are better.
What did your Xpe... morePoint is:
If you use Bayer and Quadbayer of SAME SIZE, Bayer is better.
It is completely dumb to compare cameras that use different sensor size.
Do you see anyone comparing APSC vs Full Frame? No.
Do you see anyone complaining 1" cannot outperform APSC? No.
Someone has to be stupid to expect a 1/1.7" to outperform 1/1.2".
Being Quadbayer does not make it any better.
48MP QB gives same amount of details as 12MP Bayer.
It is popular because they are cheaper to make (smaller pixels) and Sony can still charge high price.
Another secret you can now add to your very restrict knowledge about the subject.
Readout speed decreases as you increase sensor size.
This is why many small mobile cameras like 1/2.6" and 1/2.3" can do 24Mp @ 30, 40 fps while APSC and FF cannot.
Please, turn off HDR on other phones and tell me how much you like the completely white sky on cloudy days. I suppose you know brands put HDR on by default just because dxomark at expense of correct white balance, motion blur free etc ....

What did your Xperia 12mp regular Bayer sensor achieve apart from burst mode???
The reality is that the Sony Xperia series performs the worst.
Other phones are way ahead in Auto mode as well as overall photography.

In every other area, Android flagships with bigger camera sensors outperforming iPhone camera in almost every department.
Big sensor Quadbayers are overall way better than 12mp tiny sensors.

Some Android users might have to tweak the phone's GPU drivers as well.
obviously millions don't care, and they will buy regardless, I still cant get over that in late 2020 they still have that silly annoying notch.
Fair and balanced review.
Don't know which person(s) from your team did this, but this is the format that needs to be followed for every phone.

Look at the snail photo and the colors of the iPhone are much more natural than Huawei's, and the iPhone detail seems better than Xiaomi's.

Iphone only rendered video quickly than the sd one. Other than that every game and app loaded quicker on the SD device. Specially gam took much more time on iphone .

Xperia with 144Hz = XZ2 Premium
Basically, since 2016 all phones except E5, L series, R series (India only) and X Compact. Ask people from XDA in case you do not believe, or just google this "XZ Premium 120Hz screen" and read articles.
Sony Mobile already made clear they have zero interest in Quadbayer. They could easily have access to the tech if they wanted to. Sony does not even use for their own photo/video cameras. None of the other cam brands had interest in this tech.
- Quadbayer has slower readout , what would not allow the burst with AF (only xperia uses AF while doing burst mode) 20fps.
- Quadbayer has tons of artifacts at full resolution.
- Quadbayer has smaller light absorbing surface area than Bayer of same size.
- more MP gives more details and chance to record 6K and 8K, but introduces more rolling shutter for 4K because sensor is slower.
The so-called telephoto is not a telephoto lens, but what on a camera is a "normal" lens of about 50mm. I have searched and looked carefully at full resolution samples on Dpreview already for these cameras and the results in Jpeg are DREADFUL. Indeed they are not as good, due to sharpening and noise reduction as the results from my Nokia N8. Nokias dont sharpen jpegs and wreck them. Do you actually DO images from RAW files here?

The Huawei Mate 40 and P40 series along with Mi 10 ultra have the best camera on the market.All using Quad Bayer as their main sensor.
What will you do when Sony puts Quad Bayer sensor as main cam on their phones?
Just like your jaw was shut tight when Sony gave 120hz on Sony phones.
Beethoven, 04 Nov 2020Im just fair 😂
Everyone's curse exynos and note 20. And you can't do that to iphone... moreWhen Exynos throttles, everyone starts bashing it and when IPhone throttles, they are making excuses about cpu scheduler.
The truth is that no amount of cpu scheduler tweaks will prevent thermal throttling as there is no proper cooling like vapor chamber technology.
5nm Architecture cpu is probably operating with 5nm cooling pad as well.

Secondly, Snapdragon 865 devices have absolutely no problems as the A14 with those games.
Besides Apple A14 is also lagging in other heavy games like Shadowgun Legends, The Elderscrolls Blades apart from Genshin Impact.
Poma, 04 Nov 2020can anybody tell me how does gsmarena test bitrate for video recording.
Thank YouYou mean at which bitrate X phone records, or if it maintains it?
Much of the time they do talk about the first one, but rarely they check out if it can sustain that bitrate (I remember that some huawei phones didn't).
From the iphone 8 plus review (which is still valid for at least the 11 gen in my experience):
"The H.264 4K videos carry a bitrate of around 46Mbps, but audio is recorded in mono at 96Kbps in AAC format...
The 1080p videos at 30fps have a bitrate of 16 Mbps, keeping the same audio, while the 60fps ones came out with 23Mbps bitrate.
The H.265 4K videos at 60fps carry a bitrate of 54Mbps, while the audio is still mono. The 4K at 30fps clips are captured at 24Mbps - half the H.264 ones. The 1080p 30 and 60fps bitrate are also halved at 8.5 and 12.5 Mbps respectively."
