iPhone 12 Pro Max gets itchy from OnePlus 8T in “blind competition” of photography!

With the end of another year approaching, the world-renowned youtuber Marques Brownlee (MKBHD), held yet another of his already popular photography “blind competitions”. This year, the competition involving 16 smartphones presented some very interesting and even surprising results.

For example, in the first round, we saw the mid-range OnePlus 8T which costs around € 600, winning indisputably against the top of the range Apple iPhone 12 Pro Max, which costs € 1.259. This was one of the most surprising results, especially considering the price difference.

What does Marques Brownlee’s “blind competition” consist of?

This is a competition that is far from being considered scientific or reliable enough to be used as a rating table for a smartphone’s photographic capabilities.

Basically, in a format knockout, MKBHD randomly places smartphones aligned in each of the positions, replacing their names with letters. Then, the youtuber takes the same photo with each smartphone, posting the respective side by side on their social networks so that followers can vote for their favorite.

By grouping the votes from all platforms, the winner of each challenge is elected. The process is repeated until there is only one winner at the end.

iPhone 12 Pro Max vs OnePlus 8T

Among several surprises, perhaps the biggest is the victory of ASUS Zenfone 7 Pro. This is a top-of-the-range smartphone that has already surprised us, as you can see in our review, but in order to beat the 2nd place in the DxOMark ranking, it was guaranteed a big surprise.

I would like to remind you that ASUS Zenfone 7 Pro is currently in 27th position in the DxOMark ranking, lagging behind most smartphones present in this competition. This is a confirmation that this competition is far from the perfect tool to choose the best smartphone of the moment for photography.

Still, it is also a very interesting way to confirm once again that, the tests carried out by DxOMark should also not be received as “absolute truth”.
