    I'm a proud of owner of the Pocophone F1 because it's the best phone I can afford, real talk. I know it's not the best camera in any scenario BUT I think it does very good considering the price and I'm glad I'm not the only one who think so. Runner-up, baby!

    I'd rather a more detailed photo cause the brightness and contrast can be easily edited afterwards. But details will be impossible to replicate 😂

    The Pocophone beat 7 other straight up. One last pic comparison between pocophone and mat 20 needs to happen.

    For me, the finals are between Mate 20 Pro and Note 9. But I can't decide which one wins! ;)

    I think there is a massive issue that most people are viewing these photos on shit phones. Very similar to political voting, the majority are blind and stupid. Pixel 3 is an obvious winner by lightyears, and didn't even make it past the first bracket. What a load of bullshit.Oh and it's obvious you had bots from india voting for the pocophone, that phone has too much toxicity surrounding it, even though it is a fantastic phone.

    I really enjoyed this tournament. It was fun trying to guess who was the best.I did really miserably, though. In the eighth-finals, I was only able to guess two correctly: Mate 20 and Hydrogen. Some of those losses seem really surprising. I was completely out by the quarterfinals.Overall, I thought the iPhone XS or Pixel 3 would take the tournament considering how much I hear about their cameras, but I'm not surprised by the end results after seeing the photos.When choosing cameras I like, sharpness/brightness/vibrancy usually wins out over all other factors. The camera that gives the most sharp and color-accurate photos while illuminating as much of the scene as possible is usually the one I like the most too. Barring all else, sharpness/vibrancy alone will win.

    Conclusion: people that don't know how to use a camera wants a camera that can compensate for it.People that can use a camera wants raw sensor data and use their expertise to get a photo that no AI could possibly guess.

    Sorry but I miss Xiaomi Mi Mix 3 which has one of the best camera IMO.

    I dont think it is surprising. A similar outcome can easily be observed with 3D rendering. People will almost always prefer a cinematic look over a realistic one. Saturated, warmer and brighter colors are perceived better. This was talked about in cryengine documentation, I think.

    Then again, the Pocophone does have a really competent sensor which it shares with many major flagships (Sony IMX 363).
