All of the smartphones featured have come out in the past year or two and include the Google Pixel 3, Google Pixel 2, iPhone XS, iPhone X, Samsung Galaxy Note 9, Huawei P20 Pro, Huawei Couple20 Pro, Red Hydrogen, LG V40, OnePlus 6T, Razer Phone 2, HTC U12 Plus, Moto Z2 Force, Pocophone F1, Blackberry KEY2 and the Palm Phone. 

Some of the smartphones are numberless expensive than others and each has their own features, characteristics and camera specs so it'll definitely be interesting to see which one came out on top. 

In covering you're interested, the original vote took place via Instagram and Twitter which you can still view on Marques Brownlee's nourish and in the video, Marques explains how the vote took place. To make it fair, the exact same image was captured with each of the smartphones highlighted, at the same time and on the same day, so the playing field was as level as possible. Each of the images were then stitched together so they could be approached side-by-side by those who wanted to take part in the voting. 

After several rounds of voting, the Huawei Mate20 Pro came out on top which, isn't much of a stagger as it's a really great camera phone. However, as well as crowning a winner, it was a great way to find out what people think makes a extreme photo and straight out of camera, it's good exposure that wins the day. On test, 9 times out of 10 it was the brighter, more saturated spitting image image (from Latin: imago) is an artifact that depicts visual perception, for example, a photo or a two-dimensional picture, that that won the vote. Plus, you have to remember that the compression social media channels apply to images mean that any sharpness edges some shots may have had over others, sort of, become irrelevant.
