All three of them take great photos and videos. From what I can see any one of them can win depending on the shot. It's highly subjective as well. But they all look great IMO.

Comparing a Google Pixel phone to an iPhone is like comparing an Asus PC to a Mac. They both do pretty much the same thing but they are very different. I don’t think anyone chooses Android or iOS over the performance of their respective cameras.

This is a very detailed comparison of iPhone 13 Pro and Pixel 6 Pro cameras. Found it very interesting. Overall iPhone wins the battle imo especially when it comes to videos.

Had the Pixel 6 Pro for a week and it beats the iPhone 13 Pro in still photography hands down in my opinion. Video is still Apple all day but the Pixel 6 Pro is getting close, it’s much better than the previous Pixel phones that’s for sure.

If it wasn’t for the iOS ecosystem I’d run the Pixel 6 Pro as my daily but unfortunately my entire family has an iPhone so that ain’t happening lol

Most you tubers are just salemans.
That is debatable. Especially when they are comparing multiple devices, offering you visuals, side-by-side results, etc. Here in an Apple centric forum, do you honestly think you’ll get the best, most unbiased advice? People here love their iPhones. There are people who will tell you photos on other phones are subpar simply because they are pro Apple. That, and results are subjective. So while you may feel YouTube are “salesmen”, asking the opinions of a bunch of random strangers who have their own agendas doesn’t seem any better.

Even side by side, you tubers can choose to talk about which factors and focus on what

Sony I Pro has biggest sensor 1" in market now but the software is still too weak and still look like no AI at all.

It’s not like you have to take their opinion as gospel. You can see hundreds of comparison shots and decide for yourself which takes the ‘better’ photos according to your eyes.

This is a perfect example how YouTube salesman sells phone. Yeah he posts photos comparsation but every phone of I Pro looks way better than iPhone, but I can tell you from experience that Sony phone still has zero AI and the photo looks so bad no matter how big the sensor is. He is selling for sure no human would believe he is not selling, and he says no AI so the photos are pure, such a good salesman.

I am not saying he posts fake photos, it is just cherry pick. Without AI the photos look so bad as long as it is lack of some lighting in real life, he can hide that by cherry pick.

Another worst part of Sony phone is they don't really update the phone once it is not their hottest product. They make a upgraded new super buggy version then forget about it, but selling it by saying the phone is upgraded the next android version.

It’s 100% all about the Eco-system I stopped using Google owned products 5+ years ago since the Chinese compromised the Android kernel.
I can’t think of a single “Google” owned service or product I used on a Signed in Basis or Facebook for that matter.
You just don’t need these things.

iPad Pro, iPhone 13 Pro Max, and a Windows 11 now OLED laptop and a Gaming PC.

It’s a shame, I was a huge Sony Ericsson fan and my first android was their first android, the Xperia X10 in 2010.

Sony themselves have the means to be the best Android manufacturer but it’s like they are always holding themselves back. Their designs are always awesome and different, their build quality is always great, but in terms of after sales support it’s like they are somewhat “uninterested”.
