    Lot of factors involved but for many I think color makes a huge difference... if you like the cooler, punched up, oversaturated look or if you like the warmer and more real to life colors.

    What is interesting to me is how much it varies for the people in this thread.

    I definitely agree on that. I do think the One Plus was the weakest. I really was surprised how much I thought the G6 held it's own from all the criticism I've been reading especially the last two pics... the negative feedback kinda brung me down on the G6 but I wouldn't have any problem owning one... think it's better than One Plus camera ... and the test here didn't even show the possibilities on the wide angle lens.

    Mine went: Pixel, S8, iPhone, G6 and then OnePlus. In many of them I thought the G6 and OP3T were awful and I would never use that camera but a couple of them they looked good. The steering wheel picture with the flag in the mirror was the most telling for me and I picked the Pixel XL slightly over the S8. It was very close, but the Pixel was the winner for me and I tend to agree it has the best camera overall. I was actually shocked at how little I chose the iPhone over the S8 seeing as I thought the iPhone 7 Plus was the best overall camera. The Pixel to me seemed to have the most accurate colors and sharpness/contrast. I thought the S8 overprocessed a couple but it still looks darn good.

    I was C/D on pretty much every pic, but was really razor thin differences ... didn't like any of the others at all.

    After honestly going through the test, I discovered that I'd be happiest with the Samsung Galaxy S8 and LG G6.

    The iPhone 7 Plus had the best overall photos.

    Mine went back and forth between the Pixel and 7 Plus mostly. 7 Plus and S8 on a couple. Overall I'd say the Pixel edges out the win though.

    I finally watched the video and I had C as the overall winner, with D being by far in 2nd place. And this goes to a very important point - which is C is actually the best hardware/software, but D is NOT the second best, unless the S8 is worse than the S7 Edge - because the S7 Edge is better than the iPhone 7+. It's a pretty slight difference, but this is an established fact.

    I absolutely hated when he started off by saying objective measurements don't matter and personal preference is all that matters. No. Well, yes, as far as which one you should buy. But no, the best camera, is not the one you like the most - it is the one that most accurately captures the scene. There is an objective best, second best, and so on ... and that matters for ranking them. After that, which one you want to buy has to do with a whole lot of other factors, since we're buying much more than just a camera.

    Ultimately none of this matters. I don't see anyone getting rid of their existing phone to get another based on the camera alone (especially now when the quality is so close). Love the phone you have and use it to the fullest. When it's time to upgrade, do so based on your own needs and not because someone else thinks it's the best.

    Once again, this shows how good all these cameras are, that it takes nitpicking and personal eye to pick a winner.

    The best camera is the one you're happy with.

    Okay, I'll bite here ... If you're truly taking objective measurements into account, then there's no way you can make the iPhone a distant second to the Pixel. Second, yes... but a "distant" ..?

    Respectfully disagree. Camera/Picture quality matters a LOT to a lot of consumers and plays a deep part in the buying decision for them. I think reviews like these help that segment immensely if they are brand agnostic.

    I think I misworded that. I mean 1 and 2 were close to my preferences and third place was a long ways behind the iPhone. But that's the "my preference" part.

    The second paragraph is that what I think doesn't matter at all (nor what you think or any number of people) when trying to determine which one is actually objectively the best - because that's an objective measurement of what is actually most accurate to the scene.

    We don't actually have a ranking on the G6, OP3T or S8/S8+ yet - so it's kind of difficult to state where exactly they ought to place, but if we were to assume that each one is better than the prior iteration, which was Pixel > S7 Edge > G5 = iPhone 7 > OnePlus 3, then we could assume that it's still Pixel >= S8 > G6 >= iPhone 7 >= OnePlus 3T.

    Wow! I'm really surprised. I thought the Galaxy would win for me but no OnePlus 3T! (not telling which is which though, do it yourself! )

    Okay yeah, I see what you're saying. For me, I asked what would the human eye really see and the coloring on some of pictures in this unscientific test were just way different in a lot of them.

    Yeah, I can't believe how consistent the color shift is in that set. Easy to make a Lightroom rule for, unfortunately most of my phone pics never make it into Lightroom. The S8's rendering of the yellow line in the car pic is pretty bad also.

    I dunno, to me, C crushes B in the first four photos. The next two are toss-ups and B wins the last one.
