    Dear friends,
    Which device between my MacBook Pro (Retina, 15-inch, Late 2013) and my iPhone 6 Plus takes photos and videos better?
    Do not answer if you are not sure at 100%.

    Other than a selfie or a video of you sitting at your computer, I'm not sure how you would use a MacBook to do either.
    Based on that is say the iPhone. Pretty sure it has a higher spec camera as well.

    Lol guess he needs it spelled out...

    Your iPhone 6 Plus takes photos and videos better than your MacBook Pro (Retina, 15-inch, Late 2013)

    I understood your question perfectly...

    The iPhone does both things better. BUT you benefit from having the MacBook not moving around if you're video conferencing or making a casual video.

    Why don't you try both and see for yourself? It's not that hard. You don't need strangers on the internet to tell you what you can see with your own eyes.

    With that said, the iPhone 6 has a camera that is many many times better than the MacBook Pro, so of course, it'll take better photos and videos.

    I have both and they both take crap photos. Video is not such an issue because video quality is less noticeable.
    No phone camera or laptop webcam can produce image quality anywhere near the quality of even a very basic digital slr and lens.
    If all you are doing is sticking snapshots on Facebook then it's all fine.
