Kevlar body wrap? That camera must be aimed exclusively at reporters working in Afghanistan!

Epson should send them to the local landfill instead.

Was it designed by a toddler using silly putty?

Not sure why there's a big deal about not including a charger; I suspect the vast majority of people have a bunch of chargers from older phones/tablets they can use. Personally, I haven't even unpacked the chargers that came with the last 2 phones I bought and I'm still using my Samsung S8's charger with my Note 10 (plus, I have a wireless charger that I use as well), so I couldn't care less if the next phone I buy doesn't include a charger in the box.

That bracket style elimination skews the results and makes them almost unusable. IMO, it would be more accurate to let people assign a number out of, say, 5, to each pic then MKBHD can simply tally to totals for each phone and rank them accordingly. Still not scientific by any stretch, but it makes for a more balanced set of results imo.

That was both entertaining and informative, thanks! A similar roundup for the best camera phones for stills and video would also be great.

Apple's obsession with proprietary stuff has its price, that's why I always have an Android phone as a primary/backup phone.

On article Which is best for you: the Fujifilm X-T200 or X-T30? (135 comments in total)

I'm still in awe of the picture quality I'm getting from my ancient X-A1, which has the Bayer CFA, and for that reason alone I'd pick the X-T200, which also has it, but I'd wait until its price goes down!

Next year they'll make a phone with a selfie camera that pops out the bottom, then the right side, etc. One of the more random design choices I've seen in a while.

SammyToronto: Makes no difference if they trademark that laughable term; no one will ever use it, unless they're actively seeking to be ridiculed that is

@Gmon750 'Folks like you' seem to have a selective memory; Apple has been a follower more often than a leader when it comes to smartphone technology. They 'invented' things like phablets, waterproofing, multiple camera modules and wireless charging, just to name a few, years after they had been available on Android phones. Folks like me, by the way, own both iPhone and Samsung, but I don't get worked up over either; they're just smartphones and there are other, much more important things in life to get worked up over!

SammyToronto: Any reason why the comparison tool is not enabled on the conclusion page? It's quite handy to compare the different aspect of a given camera's performance against its competition so I hope you're not doing away with that feature!

Update: no sure if something was fixed but I do see the comparison tool toggle now, thanks!

@Carey Rose Thanks! FWIW, I tried again after restarting my Chrome browser and also on Edge, but the toggle that turns on the comparison tool still doesn't show on either.

SammyToronto: The photos I've seen from iPhone 11 are nothing I can't replicate with my Samsung S8 with the GCAM installed (I'm talking about the main camera; I have little use for the wide angle/telephoto lenses). Perhaps more importantly, I wouldn't care to carry around this unfortunate looking phone, which weighs a ton to boot!

@gadlaw What you do or don't do only concerns you. What I do is give my opinion on how the pics from the new iPhone compare to my Samsung S8/GCAM combination; it may be hard for you to imagine but some Samsung owners do actually consider getting an iPhone (and vice versa) so this could help them decide if it's worth it to switch, being that camera quality is the top priority for most people thinking of getting a new phone, especially among dpreview users.

@IonPortaits, this is where I got GCAM from; it's a stable version that works fine on my Samsung S8 (with Android Pie):

@mais51, that's not how it works; you're confusing a 'user' with a fa nboy. I am indeed a Samsung user currently but I did have iPhones in the past and might again in the future if they manage to make one that I like (not that owning/having owned an iPhone is a prerequisite to voicing an opinion about one, which is a funny notion).

odpisan: Sorry folks - that's fact:

The market of photo-cellphones is growing every day, when market of photo-cameras is dying.

In the next ten years you'll see big old cameras only in museum. Pentax, Nikon, Canon & Co will be history.

Your concept of what constitutes a 'fact' is flawed.
