The Google Pixel 5a was named the smartphone with the best camera in a test by blogger Marquez Brownlee. This is reported by the agency Lenta.ru.
Blogger Marques Brownlee reportedly chose devices with the best camera on his YouTube channel based on a blind test he conducts annually. The specialist selected 16 phones of 2021 and arranged them in pairs. Next, the blogger posted photos from each device and encouraged users to choose which picture they liked best. Subscribers to his social networks did not know which device took this or that picture.
After half of the devices were eliminated, eight smartphones remained in the grid. The top four gadgets in a blind test were Asus ROG 5, which outperformed the Samsung Galaxy S21 Ultra, OnePlus 9 Pro, which outperformed the Sony Xperia Pro, outperformed the iPhone 13 Pro Max, Pixel 5a, and knocked out the Asus ZenFone 8 smartphone Realme GT.
OnePlus 9 Pro and Google Pixel 5a got to the final of the blind test. According to the results of the final stage of voting, the smartphone from Google won. Brownlee noted that he was not very surprised by the choice of his subscribers, since in modern devices it is not the number of cameras that is decisive, but hardware support.
At the end of 2020, Brownlee conducted a similar test, according to which the Asus ZenFone 7 Pro was named the smartphone with the best camera. The top 4 also includes Huawei Mate 40 Pro, Xiaomi Mi 10 Ultra and Samsung Galaxy Note20 Ultra.
