Best Camera Phone 2019-2020_Based on 696,918 Blind Tests | P&P RANK

The P&P Rank offers Best Camera Phone and Best Selfie Camera Top 20 based on tens of thousands blind tests
May-4-2020 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 site. Phone & 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.

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
. 😊

    2. Hi SHAHEZ,
      Xiaomi Redmi Note 8 pro is a nice phone with good value. Unfortunately, it didn't get to the top of P&P Rank... The competition is always very tough owing to many good phones on the table nowadays.
      I will suggest you check the samples of the Note8Rro at our flickr

    1. Hi Mad Monk,
      This test included oneplus 7, oneplus 7pro, Huawei P30, P30 pro as well as other Huawei budget phones. You can check our site: Phonenphoto.com
      We have observed the test data for months, and the results kept interesting. Many people picked Oneplus and Huawei flagship phones for their blind tests. However, the majority didn't vote for these two brand eventually.
      I am confident that the test method and process are very fair and honest. So...
      Anyway, I respect the results even I personally like these two brands much.
      FYI. :)

    2. Hi RJ_DEPP13,
      Unlike DXOMARK, they test phones provided by phone makers before launching. Instead, we buy phones from the market for testing. Unfortunately, Huaiwei Mate 30 pro is unavailable in our region. We will test it soon or later. Don't worry about it. :-)
