    Given na tinipid talaga ang raw materials against retail price ng iphones, di na mystery na panalo talaga ang samsung dito. Z5, lg g4 at s6 talaga ang best cameras for 2015. Ok na din ang shots ng huawei p8 as runner up.

    • LG and Samsung yes, but not Z5. Dapat bibili ako Z5 e pero based sa reviews di sya ganun kaganda, picture quality wise, talo sya ng iPhone. Pero the rest tama ka :)

      Nagreview si manilashaker.com ng z5 at maayos ang quality ng z5 at z5 compact. Mataas din ang rating ng gsmarena at androidauthority sa z5. I don’t read verge at phonearena dahil halata sa write ups na lagi nilang pinupuri ang apple. Kailangan ding matest ang device hands on dahil hindi rin naman reliable ang opinion ng lahat ng techsites.

    • Well maybe yung difference ng iPhone and Z5 sa picture ay sobrang liit para masabi kung anung mas maganda sa dalawa kasi mukang nagvavary ung results ng mga test pero definitely di na iPhone ang hari sa camera wars ngayun, its either LG or Samsung na :)

    Iam a avid reader of this site since 2007 pa. And obviously, anti apple ang site na to. Wag na kayo magpanggap, halatang halata naman.

      so dapat Apple ang overall winner?
      wag bobo please, mga iSheep.

      the article was fair and it acknowledged the iPhone’s strength as well.
