The Xiaomi 12S Ultra caught everyone’s eye when it was made official. However, enthusiasts will undoubtedly be disappointed to learn that the phone is not intended for the French market. Without wanting to rub salt in the wound, we want to show you a taste of the photo quality offered by this monster that benefits from a one-inch main sensor – with a definition of 50 megapixels – and the expertise of the giant Leica.

With this in mind, Xiaomi France has lent us the only copy available on its shelves for comparison. So here’s the Xiaomi 12S Ultra against the Apple iPhone 13 Pro Max and the Samsung Galaxy S22 Ultra to find out which of the three is the best smartphone for photography. But only you can vote!

Photo comparison: the rules of the game

Below, you will find nine scenes photographed by three smartphones, Xiaomi 12S Ultra, iPhone 13 Pro Max and Samsung Galaxy S22 Ultra. For each scene, there are therefore, logically, three pictures. You are the one who has to vote for your favorite photos, but there isn’t any helpful indicator to know which camera took which photo. We also remove metadata (Exif) from images to make your work easier. The goal is to avoid bias in your selection.

How to vote? It’s simple, three photos at a time arranged in a gallery. The photo on the left corresponds to number 1, the one in the middle to number 2 and the one to the right to number 3. You can refer to the following diagram.

In each scene, you will find a poll module where you can vote (1, 2 or 3) for your favorite photo.

⚠ warning: if you are reading this article in a browser from a smartphone, we advise you to remove, if necessary, the reference “/amp” at the end of the URL. The AMP format does not always lend itself well to presenting images in a gallery format.

When will the results be revealed?

The results will be revealed a week after the publication of this paper, around Friday July 29. We will be in stock together to see which smartphone won the most votes. Xiaomi 12S Ultra, iPhone 13 Pro Max or Samsung Galaxy S22 Ultra.
