I mean, the importance of capturing sharp images is pretty self-explanatory — it’s something you definitely want. Unless you’re after some artistic “bokeh on purpose” look.
In any case, we chose this scene because of the complex and detailed brickwork along the side of Arenas de Barcelona. As a whole, all the photos look pretty good and you can see a lot of detail there.
But if you punch in, you can see that the Mate 10 Pro is slightly softer than the other 3. Between the S9, S9+ and iPhone X, I find it really hard to pick a winner and I find myself alternating between the three pretty often.
However, if I had to pick a winner, it’d be the iPhone X because it has the sharpest all-round photo. The S8+ gets a little soft around the edges.
