For the second year in a row, well-known YouTuber MKBHD ran a blind vote to determine which smartphone has the greatest photography in 2022.
The main difference this year from prior years is that voting was not done through social media. Instead of compressing the photographs from various platforms, the YouTuber and his team created a separate website where everyone could view the photos in full resolution and vote whenever they wanted.
In case you’re unfamiliar, in MKBHD’s blind voting, viewers see photographs without knowing which device took them and just vote which one they like. The gadgets are tested under various settings, such as night photography, portraiture, and so on. This year’s response was massive, with over 600,000 people voting on which smartphone had the greatest camera in 2022!
