2022 Readers' Choice Award Winner

While the voter results between the four phones were very close (all within 0.4 of each other), two phones stood out for you — Apple’s iPhone 14 Pro Max and Google’s Pixel 7 Pro. They ended up almost inseparable, but some last-minute voting pushed the Pixel 7 Pro ahead (by just 0.02) to win our 2022 Reader’s Choice award for best camera phone.

The two had the largest share of results rated four or higher, with 63.8% of voters giving the Pixel 7 Pro a high score and 62.8% the highest rated iPhone. Clearly, voters were generally impressed. But this is a notable win for the Pixel 7 Pro, given its reasonable price compared to all the other shootout competitors.

The Pixel 7 Pro and iPhone 14 Pro Max have mostly received high marks from our readers.

Our readers are clearly very demanding in the camera department, with the Xperia 1 IV and Galaxy S22 Ultra receiving scores of one in just over 10% of voters, and nearly 25% of voters issuing scores of two or less to these phones. Harsh, but we certainly agree that Sony’s flagship struggles to deliver the bright, vibrant shots that its competitors offer, while Samsung’s best had noise problems and a somewhat poor picture in the few shots we took.

worthy winner

The Pixel 7 Pro has already won Android Authority 2022 Editor’s Choice and Reader’s Choice awards for best overall smartphone, so it’s a nice sweep of Google’s flagship this year. Although perhaps more surprising is how close the iPhone 14 Pro Max came in the reader vote. With the brand hidden, Apple’s premium flagship can impress the Android faithful.

In fact, the Pixel 7 and 7 Pro have been on our photography radar, and basically everyone else’s, since launch. From stunning everyday shots, seen here, industry-leading astrophotography capabilities to impressive Super Res Zoom, and software features that include Image Enhancements, Magic Eraser, and more. Google has made photography a central part of its Pixel identity, and it’s clear that the business has paid dividends because it can keep up with and outpace the best.

Google’s Pixel 7 Pro is a worthy winner. Congratulations Google!
