So, only affordable phone was the realme 8 :-(. It has to be something between a realme 8 and a pixel 6 pro.

Apple, 17 Nov 20218k is pointless in phones Nah, it's certainly pointful.
The 10x zoom camera is not much better than 5x - hahahahah! Who are you kidding? Btw, the video of the S21 Ultra is much better than the iPhono 13 Max, and I am not talking about the 8K, which destroys the iPhone completely!

Phones are better-off at their place

Once you tune the output in a way you like, you won't have to worry about re-adjusting them while you're composing a frame. You can also enable stacked RAW output with a few taps whenever you want to edit images in post.

Other smartphones are not aimed at professional photographers, making the comparison largely irrelevant.
Sony markets Pro-I as pro-grade equipment and prices it significantly higher than offerings from other companies and even their own compact cameras that are packed with a fairly similar set of features but offer better image quality.
On top of that, I was simply pointing out your severe lack of comprehension skills and laziness for not reading the title of the article properly. Pro-I has never been brought to this discussion until you have, out of nowhere.

This is a myth that I encounter on the internet frequently yet can't help but disagree with. Xperia Pro-I's image processing is NOT laid back at lower ISO settings. From the samples I've seen on several websites, during the day, it doesn't handle low contrast details well and applies quite a substantial amount of sharpening. iPhone 13 Pro is well known for smudging textures and going haywire with clarity boost at night, but still renders finer details than Xperia as long as there's enough light in the scene to begin with. Pro-I is still better than some other high-end phones like, let's say, Exynos S21 Ultra, but obviously no P50 Pro or Mi11U in this regard.

You basically want the largest sensor, raw capture, and your photogenic eye if you want to capture the best shots.
However, I'm a little older and a little wiser now. I understand the best phone camera is the iPhone. No really. They have the best performance when it comes to a quick point'n'shoot strategy. And for 90% or more of your shots, that is what you need.
You can get better photos and videos from other devices (Huawei, Samsung, Oppo, etc etc) but this requires you to pause for a moment, and adjust a few settings. And you can even get much better photos from the likes of the Sony that I mentioned above. However, this requires you to take a long time to navigate the perfect angles, lighting, and settings to capture the image. If you are going to be that picky, then you shouldn't be using your phone in the first place for that shot, and you should be using a Mirrorless/DSLR instead.
No, I'm not an Apple fanboy. I'm using a OnePlus. But you cannot deny that when it comes to using your phone for quick snaps, the best options are iPhones and Pixels. Please watch JuanBagnell / SomeGadgetGuy on YouTube for more detailed explanations.

That's why I have been 'begging' GSMA to do revisit of the Lumia 950XL just like they did with the 808PV & 1020, bcoz that represents the best version of the Lumia/Nokia processing (HDR, low-light, etc) for many.
Mate X2/ P50pro and x70 pro plus are my first 2 tips.
Anonymous, 15 Nov 2021Cameraphones? Buy a normal camera not a phone. Much better.Yes, cameras are better at taking pictures than phones but they're not as convenient to carry around. I used to carry a DSLR around in the old days in a carry bag with a fixed focus lens and a variable focus lens and it really was a hassle. I'm not a professional photographer and I just wanted photos for the memories. Phones take good enough pictures these days and are far more convenient to carry around.
