Hehe, this list is NOT A RANK =) it's just a list of competitors to link the numbers on photos to the smartphones' models. More of that, a half of the pie diagrams shows us "WORST PICTURE" vote results. So to avoid misunderstanding, I'd translate the conclusion which the author put in the end of that text
Here it goes.
At the end I want to give simply statistics on the frequency of a mentioning of smartphones in categories of the best and worst pictures.
The best pictures category.
Four times among the best there were pictures made with Nokia Lumia 1020 (a mode of 38 Mpix), Samsung Galaxy S5 and Sony Xperia Z2 (auto, 8 Mpix). Three times LG G2 and Sony Xperia Z2 (manual mode) got on the top. Samsung Galaxy Camera 2, HTC One smartphones (M8) and Apple iPhone 5S appeared among the best quality pictures only one time. Also we have one smartphone which never got to the top 3, it is Nokia Lumia 1520.
If we want to elect the absolute leader in the category, Sony Xperia Z2 smartphone is the one. Four times the pictures made in "auto, 8 Mpix" mode, and three times – in manual mode, seven times in total.
The worst pictures category.
One device was chosen among the worst quality pictures six times, and surprisingly, it's FujiFilm X20 camera (the average cost of 20 000 rubles (Aprox. 570 USD, (ecopy))). It is possible to tell that this device is rather for vanity, than qualitative on optics and other parameters (actually, it is not so), it is possible to tell that it performs well in a manual mode and isn't intended for shooting in "auto" (and it is the truth, in the manual X20 mode it is capable to give out tremendous shots), but the fact remains. The majority of the voted people is more often than other pictures as the worst chose the pictures taken with a camera of 20 000 rubles cost. And this clearly proofs of that smartphones not simply caught up with digital compact cameras in the matter of quality of shooting, but also overtook the majority of them. Five times Nokia Lumia 1020 (that is strange) was choosen among the worst as well as Nokia Lumia 1520 (logically, among the best it was in general never). Four times among the worst were mentioned the pictures made with HTC One (M8). One smartphone was never chosen as the worst photos on quality – Samsung Galaxy S5.
If to choose the worst smartphone in category, Nokia Lumia 1520 appeared to be the one, its photos were chosen as the worst the greatest number of times. The X20 camera, of course, acted even worse, but it is not after all the smartphone. On the second place counting from the end – HTC One (M8), on the third – Nokia Lumia 1020.
