iPhone 12 vs S20 FE vs Pixel 5 – Camera comparison
The main premise of the comparison is that it is supposed to be unbiased. So, the participants – Vadim & Angelika – did not know which smartphone took which picture and they had to select the picture they thought was best out of three choices and give it a point.
The test features 23 sets of pictures in total, all taken with three different smartphones. In terms of variety, there are a ton of dynamic shots included in the test which measure different things like how good the zoom is on a camera or how much detail can it include in a shot. It is important to note that there was no set criteria for this camera comparison, both of the participants chose the picture that was the most pleasing to the eye.
For the results, Apple fans might say they aren’t surprised. Vadim gave 10 points to the iPhone 12, 8 points to the Samsung 20 FE, and 5 points to Google’s Pixel 5. Angelika gave 11 points to the iPhone 12, 8 points to the Samsung 20 FE, and 4 points to Google’s Pixel 5
