PROS:
  • Premium design, Beautiful display, Superb cameras
CONS:
  • Camera module protrudes too much, No telephoto shooter, No improvement in FunTouch OS

Vivo’s partnership with German camera maker Zeiss takes another step forward with the Vivo X90 Pro. Apart from offering one of the best camera setups in the Android space, the Vivo-Zeiss partnership also spills over to the display of the Vivo X90 Pro. This time around, we get a “Zeiss Natural Colour” colour profile on the display, which is calibrated by Zeiss. Given that this is Vivo’s big bet on camera this year, we also get a superior camera experience with the 50MP 1-inch type Sony IMX989 sensor which acts as the primary shooter. We also get a 50-megapixel telephoto lens, and a 12-megapixel ultra wide angle shooter. All of this combined, offers one of the most complete camera experience.

This time around, for the first time, we are getting the 5X optical zoom on an iPhone, which itself is enough to put the smartphone in the front when it comes to cameras. Add to that, the ability to record on a drive using USB type-C and the iPhone 15 Pro Max makes for one of the most complete camera smartphone in the market.

Samsung Galaxy S23 Ultra 5G

PROS:
  • Important design tweaks, Powerful performer, Brilliant cameras, Beautiful display, Great battery backup
CONS:
  • Too big, No expandable storage, Slow charging

The Samsung Galaxy S23 Ultra is just an incremental update over its predecessor. And a very good one at that. Samsung has focused on keeping the same recipe, but refining it for an overall better experience. The company has fixed all the issues last year’s Galaxy S22 series had – be it heating, throttling, or the disappointing battery backup. The S23 Ultra, in our initial days with the phone, did not throttle much, the smartphone heats up much less (thanks to the larger vapour cooling chamber), and the battery is now probably one of the best on any Android smartphone out there. On top of that, you get a super powerful chip, and again, one of the best smartphone cameras out there currently.

PROS:

  • Very heavy weight, Battery backup is average, Camera module is too thick

So the Xiaomi 13 Pro is the Chinese maker’s answer to iQOO, Samsung, and OnePlus in 2023 (with Vivo coming fast at it with the Vivo X90 series). The first Leica-branded camera smartphone from Xiaomi in India brings the company’s newly-established camera chops to our shores, along with the high-level performance that you’d expect from a flagship Android. This is also one of the first smartphones to come with a 1-inch type camera sensor, and the images are a great reflection of how that makes a difference.

Google Pixel 8 has a very good camera. So good that it even trumps last year’s Google Pixel 7 Pro. This year, we get a dual rear camera setup with a 50-megapixel wide angle lens paired to a 12-megapixel wide angle shooter. Apart from this, we get the same AI-based features that we see on the Google Pixel 8 Pro with things like AI noise eraser, a magic editor, and more. There are other features. For example, we get Google’s “Bokeh Video” which is the cinematic video feature on the Pixel 8. We also get the option of not only adjusting the exposure while clicking photos, we can also change the colour tone and white balance in the photos while clicking them.
