In addition to a considerable effort made on the battery and on the adaptive panel of 120 Hz offering fluidity, speed, brightness and autonomy out of the ordinary, Apple is not left out on the photo side.
If there are only 4 (there are 5 on the latest Samsung), the new 12 MP sensors installed on the iPhone 13 Pro and Pro Max are impressive.
The main camera has the largest sensor ever installed on an iPhone. It also has an aperture at ƒ/1.5, allowing even more light to be captured.
The other two rear sensors benefit from an aperture at ƒ/1.8 for the wide angle and ƒ/2.8 for the 3X telephoto lens (compared to 2X on the iPhone 12), all of which benefit from 1.9μm per pixel.
Add to that the ability to always shoot in 4K in Dolby Vision HDR at 60 frames per second and you have the cream of the crop of photophones.
Apple has also added a Cinematic mode (an improved portrait mode) to the spectacular rendering, as well as a Photography Styles mode allowing you to vary the contrasts.

Samsung Galaxy S22 Ultra
- 5 sensors, the main one at 108 MP
- A 10X zoom
- Night performances
We Don’t Like
- A clamped processor
- No charger
- Average range
The S22 Ultra has engulfed the Galaxy Note, but otherwise has little difference from its illustrious predecessor, the S21 Ultra. However, improvements have been made to the photo part, especially in low-light scenarios.
Featuring 5 sensors, the Samsung S22 Ultra offers an ultra-versatile photo module. On the back, we will enjoy a 108 MP main sensor that, if it may lack a little sharpness, offers remarkable performance, with impeccable focus and rigorous HDR. The angle, slightly larger than on the S21, allows you to approach the subject effectively and gain sharpness.
It is also on the stages up close that the ultra wide-angle of 10 MP gives all its potential. Even closer the sensor unlocks a pseudo macro mode that is frighteningly faithful.
Two x3 and x10 telephoto lenses (which can even be pushed to x30 or x100!) complete the widest range of smartphones on the market. The Selfie mode is impeccable on a phone of this range.
Thanks to its Adaptive Pixel function, it is on the night mode that Samsung has made real progress, even in 3x zoom.
Google Pixel 6 Pro
- An exceptional screen
- The Super Res Zoom
- An ultra-wide photo module
We Don’t Like
- Charging a bit slow
- Tensor processor, slower than expected
Google has always focused on the quality of its cameras in its Pixel range. The Pixel 6 Pro is no exception to the rule and big improvements (software too) have been made compared to the Pixel 5
Its main sensor is 50MP with 1.2 μm per pixel and opens at ƒ/1.9. In addition, there is a wide-angle sensor of 12 MP ƒ/2.2 with a field of view of 114 degrees, as well as a telephoto lens of 48 MP ƒ/3.5 offering an optical zoom x4, which by the magic of the Super Res Zoom allows to go up to x20 with an almost identical quality.
Another big difference of the Pixel 6 Pro is its homemade software that you won’t see elsewhere. Let’s mention its magic eraser, its Movement mode for long-exposure photos or the Real Tone that finally gives thanks to people of color.
