That's the entire point of doing the comparison!

If you are going to delete the extra information carried by the smaller and more numerous pixels, you're also going to delete the advantage they bestow - and that's a dishonest comparison.

That's why I talked about comparing default output first

The default is 3x downsampled.

and whatever resolutions your curiosity demands second.

So, first is "default" and second is "honest".

Most of these current sensors are designed to downsize

Downsizing is a choice.

, for various reasons.
Huawei sensors are 40mp made to output 10mp

No, they are 40MP sensors, and the software folks decided to downsample them.

, Xiaomi 108mp are made to output 27mp

No, they are 108MP sensors and the software folks decided to downsample them.

, Samsung 108mp are made to output 12mp.

No, they are 108MP sensors and the software folks decided to downsample them.

There's a reason for this

Yes, speed and file size, and the illusion of better quality.

and this should be the primary comparison to be made, everything else is just an "extra".

Other way around.

Anyway, the maximum resolution is not that good because of the unconventional and subpar color filters.

Not sure any of that is true.
