Photographic quality is one of the great promises of the recent Samsung Galaxy S23 Ultra. Therefore, we compare it with the iPhone 14 Pro, the Google Pixel 7 Pro and the OnePlus 11 (also very recent) We photographed a large number of scenes with very different shooting conditions to experiment. Which one comes out better?
The start of 2023 is already spoiling us in terms of great phones, especially when it comes to the best smartphones for photos. So we have already made a photographic comparison between the recent Samsung Galaxy S23 Ultra and the OnePlus 11, integrating two other references in this area, the iPhone 14 Pro and the Google Pixel 7 Pro.
Do not hesitate to see our video published on the YouTube channel of frandroid in which our team compares different photos of scenes captured each time with the four smartphones. When judging, no one knows in advance from which device this or that image came from. is the concept of blind test (blind test) so as not to be biased by a possible preference for a particular brand.

A large number of photos were taken to challenge all possible photo sensors and various functionalities. Wide angle, ultra wide angle, 2x, 3x, 10x zoom, portrait, selfie, day, night, etc. We don’t skimp on the shots.
The rule of the game? Rank the four photos each time from best to worst, then come up with an overall ranking at the end.
bitter photo battle
It’s interesting how the Galaxy S23 Ultra, iPhone 14 Pro, Pixel 7 Pro, and OnePlus 11 all have their strengths in photos, but for the most part make very different decisions from one another in algorithmic processing. . And sometimes, some people miss it completely. This is particularly true for low light scenes or when comparing the results, we can see colorimetric inconsistencies here and there, lack of sharpness, randomly generated bokeh effect, etc.
Obviously, in many of the situations, we find ourselves in the need of picky eaters to be able to classify the photos, but obviously that is all the salt of the exercise. This is also an opportunity to remember that the S23 Ultra has a 200 Mpx sensor. To go a little further on this topic, you can also check our comparison of the 200 Mpx mode against the 108 Mpx mode.
