In our final part of our ultimate smartphone versus, it’s the battle of the cameras. In order to determine a winner and the best camera you can get from your mobile we’ve pit each phone against each other in a number of different challenges.

Portrait, action, landscape, close up and low light are the shots each phone has to capture – All captured in auto mode to best suit a day to day environment.

In order to see how good the photos have come out we’ve brought in our photography editor Phil to help with the analysis and to take photos from his own Nikon D8000E DSLR (with a f/2.8 len) to set a bar for the phones to hit.

Without saying which photo was taken by which phone, we’ve let both James and Phil take a look at each photo on A3 printing paper and through a 4K Ultra HD monitor to determine which photographs win out in each category.

What do you think of the results and what phone do you use to take your photos? Let us know!

    for low light the htc was best. Best noise reduction if u check shadows and it was better exposed with preserved details because it and the iPhone are the only phones with the fence not blurred out but the 10 was better so it gets the win.

    Once you run the DSLR photos through post-processing (like they're designed to be) they will blow the phones out of the water

    Review sites like this will always praise whom ever is providing the cash flow. It's the same reason when you go into a Verizon, Sprint, BestBuy, etc that the first phones they through in your race is either a Samsung or iPhone, because they are compensated for it. Now the google pixel (though worth the praise) is also among these.
