Best Camera Phone 2019_Based on 151,093 Blind Tests | P&P RANK

Based on 151,093 Blind Test. The P&P Rank offers Best Camera Phone and Best Selfie Camera Top 20 based on tens of thousands blind tests

Dec-16-2019 updated

Are you looking for the best camera phone recommendations? In addition to the DXOMARK scores, you now have another reliable second opinion- the P&P RANK.

The P&P RANK is a fair and honest measure that consumers can refer to before deciding which best smartphone to buy. It aggregates the votes from thousands of blind tests by comparing photos taken from different smartphones at the Phone & Photo site.

What's the difference between P&P RANK and DXOMARK?
The DXOMARK score is more like Michelin as it is based on the professional judgments of a small group of experts. By contrast, the P&P Rank is more like Yelp (one of the most popular restaurants and local business review services in the world) as it reflects the preferences and opinions of the masses.

The P&P RANK also aims to include mid-range and budget phones. Nowadays, phone makers consider the best cameras to be not just flagship phones but also budget phones owing to their business strategy. Take the Pixel 3A for example; it costs less than $500 yet it’s a camera that is really kicking the asses of other expensive phones. This is definitely a great trend and good news for people. As this trend continues, we believe you will find more mind-blowing results using the P&P RANK.

How does the P&P RANK work? 

The P&P RANK is based on tens of thousands of blind tests on the Phone & Photo sitePhone & Photo create standard studio scenes and compile photos from different smartphones for these tests. By comparing mobile phone images taken under the same light conditions and with the same camera settings, people can vote for the picture they prefer in each scene and, hopefully, will find their ideal camera phone.

By aggregating votes of a certain duration, we can find the Best Camera Phone of the Year, Best Camera Phone of the Month, Best Selfie Camera of the year, and Best Selfie Camera of the Month.

We collect votes from all test scenes to decide the Best Camera Phone 2019 and Best Camera Phone of the Month. For the Best Selfie Camera categories, only front camera test scenes are included.

The P&P RANK is a fair and honest measure that people can refer to before deciding which mobile phone to buy. The result was based on 151,093 blind tests at the Phone & Photo site as of Dec.15 2019.

If you are more interested in newer smartphone models, Best Camera Phone of the Month is good to check.

Why not take a blind test at Phone & Photo right now and find your true-love camera phone?

But why should you take a blind test before buying a phone?
Specification comparisons and those dazzling advertisements don’t mean much, and an expensive phone won’t guarantee outstanding camera performance. In our limited testing experience, we have been amazed many times by the test results. It is frequently the case that budget phones easily beat flagship phones.
Which camera phone is best for you? Let the honest test speak for itself and then, believe me, you will definitely find your ideal phone. 😊

    1. Yes, bro, I kinda understand how you feel... I was as surprised as you when I saw the result.
      This result was based on more than 150,000 blind tests. It did reflect most people's preferences.
      First of all, I respected it and had to publish it honestly. Second, I think it's a very interesting phenomenon that we can discuss further.
      As you may also know that the iPhone tends to keep the color as the same as it's in real life. By contrast, Samsung and Realme phones provide people with pleasing colors.
      Nowadays, most people don't check and even don't give a shit about the details of their images. They just care about if the color is attractive enough to win likes and hearts. And this rank somehow reflected this reality.
      I hope this helps. Let me know how you think about this. Any rational discussion is welcomed. :)

    2. Honestly, I used the realme 3 pro, I think the camera of 5k ranges of smartphones are more better than realme's camera. It has a only attractive thing that this brand provide quad nd high mp cameras in low price so people buy this. But they don't know I phones have very low mp camera but can click the best pics than others. So if we look for midrange budget smartphone then I recommend Redmi is best.

  7. No flagships from Xiaomi even. The Xiaomi Mi 9 would very well deserve a high spot there. 😑 And also, the K20 Pro and the Mi Note 10. The Mi 9 and the K20 Pro sports the flagship Sony IMX586 while the Mi Note 10 has Samsung's latest 108MP sensor.

    1. Hi Ken,
      The reason I created blind test stuff was that I found mostly fancy spec was just an advertising trick. Pixel 3a doesn’t sport IMX 586 or even dual cameras, but its camera beats many phones. After testing about 100 phones, I’d say the spec on the paper doesn’t guarantee the performance in the real world. Don’t let the spec or any marketing trick fools you. You don’t have to take my blind test. You will find your best way to find your ideal phones. :) Have a delightful new year.

  8. This is the best and the most objective rank I've ever seen. The method seems scientific. You know some people would rather believe in what advertising feeds them. Let those morons just be morons.
    Great job bro. Keep doing the right thing.
