    “Clearly”?!
    (B/c I haven’t the slightest idea what you’re talking about.)

    I was just in London and I heard some of our family over there call the Huawei phones "Hawaii" phones.

    I have no idea what you are referring to. However, this much can be said: sensor size alone is not a guarantee for a better image.

    The iPhone is the one of the world’s most popular cameras for more than one reason.

    Every manufacturer brings out something or the other to show off at their press events. Just one aspect of a phone doesn’t trump every other aspect of another phone. It’s stupid comparison to say the least.

    It's like bringing up how many more mega pixels a certain camera has, even though it has absolutely no bearing on how great the quality of the photos will be..

    Well, yeah, it does have some bearing, actually.

    People love their products, obviously.

    Looks like you just created this account to take a random jab at Apple products. Good show.

    I don’t believe the OP does either.

    “No bearing”

    That’s funny.

    Does this mean huawei’s ohoto is 70% better than iphone’s?

    Don’t think so. I had huawei p10 and camera is not that much better even through they advertised that as a Camera phone.

    I also had a pixel 2 and iPhone X camera is definitely not as good as that. But not sure about this sensor comparison.

    Don't succumb to the marketing BS...cell phone camera lenses are such a small fraction of the overall equation in producing quality pictures. All you need to do is look at the pictures from an iPhone X for real world quality differences vs. any other mediocre competitors.

    Apple has always been at a sensor size deficit to it's primary competitors. With that said, sensor size is just one factor in the equation of image quality, especially when it comes to smartphone cameras. Sensor manufacturers, primary led by Sony, keep pushing the boundaries of what's possible through technologies like BSI, deep trench isolation, and more recently software tricks like image stacking/sampling.

    You simply can't defeat physics however, the iPhone X/8 primary camera is at both a sensor and aperture disadvantage to the S9/+, and the real world results reflect the low light difference.

    It's the world's most popular camera because 90% of the instagram users use an iPhone to take selfies :D

    There’s no law that says the iPhone must have the best mobile camera on the market. It hasn’t for quite a few years now but the whole package is what makes the iPhones appealing, not just one feature.

    This is referring to sensor size, not lenses.

    The p10 pro sensor size is 270% of iphone x

    Take a phone with iphone x at night comparing to any android with much bigger sense then clearly iphone x lost. Tried in real life. Small sensor at night time is much worse.

    Uh no it doesn't actually, unless you're talking about extremely small resolutions. You understood full well what i was saying.

    Physical sensor size (area) is one of the direct factors in low light ability.

    Newsflash: cell phones have small camera sensors.

    There is, in fact, a difference between having absolutely no bearing and having some bearing. That’s not unimportant.

    Apple prefers a thinner device, so they don't put in larger sensors.

    On the other hand, Apple adds 3D Touch which adds thickness. Other manufacturers prioritize the camera. It depends on what you want.

    I thought you were going to post a great looking pic but instead it's marketing hype from China. Lame.
