    Flickr users love photos shot by the Galaxy S23 Ultra

    Samsung's flagship smartphones may not have the most bleeding-edge camera tech compared to phones from Chinese brands, but the overall photography and videography experience that they offer remains top-notch.

    Samsung's Galaxy S Ultra smartphones have the most impressive camera hardware of all Galaxy devices. The Galaxy S22 Ultra and Galaxy S23 Ultra feature 200MP primary cameras, a 12MP ultra-wide camera, a 3x telephoto lens, and a 10x telephoto lens, making for an extremely versatile camera setup that can handle every occasion.

    It should come as no surprise then, that over on Flickr, one of the most popular image-hosting services, people love photos captured by Galaxy smartphones. A recent survey of 1,161,339 photos on Flickr across various categories (such as architecture, portrait, and landscape) found that the Galaxy S23 Ultra takes the most loved pictures among all Android devices.

    The survey's results were based on the number of times photos from various phones were ‘favorited' on Flickr. As one would expect, an iPhone (the iPhone 13 Pro) is at the number one spot. The Galaxy S23 Ultra comes in second and is followed by the Galaxy S21 5G, and the rest of the top ten include other iPhones, a Xiaomi Redmi phone, and a Google Pixel 7 Pro.

    The Galaxy S23 Ultra averaged 21.7 favorites per photo, while the Galaxy S21 was a close second with a 20.9 average. Photos captured using the telephoto lenses on the Galaxy S23 Ultra were called unmatched by one reviewer, and while the survey doesn't offer more details, we are going to assume that isn't the opinion of just one Flickr user.

    It's also interesting to note that despite all the complaints from tech enthusiasts about Apple and Samsung not using the absolute best camera sensors, the general public seems to like photos captured by iPhones and Galaxy phones. Of course, Apple and Samsung being the most popular and bestselling brands helps skew such surveys in their favor, but it doesn't change the fact that the results are what matter, not on-paper specs or fancy branding and marketing hype.
