BlackBerry Key 2 And Pocophone Beats iPhone XS And iPhone X In Blind Camera Test, Mate 20 Pro Takes The Cake


Popular YouTuber MKBHD conducted a blind camera comparison over the past few days. The test comprised of 16 smartphones including the iPhone XS, Pixel 3, BlackBerry Key 2, Red Hydrogen One, Pocophone, Huawei Mate 20 Pro and even the little Palm phone. The comparison received millions of votes over Twitter as well as Instagram and the results are not only surprising but as Marques quotes "upsetting". Let's see some more details on the blind camera test.

The wide array of smartphones used in the camera test only makes things more interesting. If we go by the names of these smartphones, we have a winner in our heads, which may vary from person to person but it would most likely be a flagship. Not in the comparison though. The blind results are so odd you just can't process it without asking how and why.

Despite all the advanced tech packed inside the latest iPhone XS and iPhone X, the duo was knocked out in the first round by BlackBerry Key 2 and the Pocophone F1, respectively. "Upsetting", isn't it? According to the bracket, the Pocophone F1 also knocked out the Galaxy Note 9 and reached the final round where it dragged Hydrogen One out of the competition.

The Google Pixel 2 lost to the LG V40 in the blind camera test, while the Pixel 3 lost to the Huawei Mate 20 Pro. The BlackBerry Key 2 ultimately lost to Huawei Mate 20 Pro. Huawei's Mate 20 Pro finally won the comparison out of the 16 smartphones. However, there's a reason why millions of users chose or voted for these smartphones. As rightfully pointed out by MKBHD, people preferred images which were brighter with more contrast and saturation. The detailing, sharpness and dynamic range in photos, which the giants like Pixel 3 and the iPhone XS brag, was washed away to the brighter image.
