The Xiaomi 12S Ultra caught everyone’s eye when it was made official. However, enthusiasts were no doubt disappointed to learn that the phone was not intended for the French market. Without wanting to rub salt in the wound, we wanted to show you a taste of the photo quality offered by this monster which 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 was able to lend us the only copy present in its cupboards for a 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 the photo. But it’s up to you to vote!

Photo comparison: the rules of the game

Below, you will find nine scenes photographed with the three smartphones, Xiaomi 12S Ultra, iPhone 13 Pro Max and Samsung Galaxy S22 Ultra. For each scene, there are therefore, logically, three photos. It is you who will have to vote for your favorite photos, but without having any clue to know which camera captured which photo. We have also removed the metadata (Exif) from the images so as not to make your task easier. The goal is to avoid biasing your choice.

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

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

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

When will the results be revealed?

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