Samsung Galaxy S20 Ultra vs other brands.

It seems like the Galaxy S20 Ultra will be the King in mobile photography this year.

You got of course Pixel 4, Apple iPhone 11 Pro etc..

Sony is a manufactur of camera chip but their own mobile efforts have always been behind for some reason in the photo area.

Maybe this is the year they finally cathing up with their own brand?

Sony Xperia 1 Mark II:

Any thoughts who will have the best camera in general in 2020?

    <p>Huawei seem to have the crown at the moment, with the P30 Pro and that is a high bar to reach, but with the problems they are having with US embargoes, the Mate 30 Pro and the 2020 models probably won't come into the equation, as they will only have limited availability outside of China.</p><p>The new Xiaomi M10 Pro came in with a DxO mark of 124, which is, I believe the best a smartphone has achieved so far. That will be one to look out for as well.</p><p>It will be interesting to see if Samsung can actually turn the high pixel count into usable results, with its downscaling.</p><p><br></p>

    <p>Camera quality is highly subjective, and DxO is only one thing to look at. Just like back in the day, many of us liked Kodachrome, but others preferred Fujichrome. Different looks. In general, both Samsung and Huawei tend toward the over processed and over saturated. Find some online comparisons where you can look at actual photos side by side from phones you are interested in, and with the type of photos you take. Personally, I find Google's and Apple's processing much more to my liking.</p>

      The subjective nature of camera quality is correct. A happen to like the overly-saturated photos that the Huawei cameras tend to take, but many probably don’t. Suspect that Google and Apple are more natural. Overall, I kind of like natural++, a bit of pop.
