    Conclusion
    In group 2 and group 6, OnePlus 6 does stand out from the crowd, the dynamic range in backlight and night keeps the details, sharpness and right saturation.

    However, in group 1 and 3, group 5 and group 8, we also find that a lot of adjustments have to be made to have the accurate brightness and color in daylight, as well as in portrait mode, while keeping the right white balance.

    Clarification
    We noticed that there’re also many OnePlus users arguing about the intentions of this blind test. Please be advised that this is not an image quality competition, we were never planning to win the blind test, but to collect your feedback and preferences in each scene.

    Every smartphone camera has their own image style or taste, but we want to know what makes an image more appealing to people, which helps our software team improve our camera.

    We at OnePlus value and listen to every customer’s feedback, and work on making the smartphone that you actually want. You might see this kind of image blind test again in the future, and we truly need your support to keep improving our camera.

    Thank you for all the feedback, community!


    Never Settle

    Well, I feel Some of the 984 Members Blindly Selected Random Options.

    But I Love the fact u wrote
    "We at OnePlus value and listen to every customer’s feedback, and work on making the smartphone that you actually want."

    So i guess. I have to wait for next Smartphone launch. Because Updates Won't solve anything :)

    @Jimmy Z. Then when did you remove ois from 5/5T and brought it back in the 6, if you listen to your customers? And why are you so afraid of DxO Mark? One plus 5 has 87 score and it's very poor result

    @NovinDavis I don't think and will never believe One plus to achieve high results in DxO. One plus 5 had just 87 score and it was the highly advertised "collaborative" work with DxO specialists. It is much better to give Blind Test to the community, where everyone will defend his favourite and newly bought 1+ smartphone. I would better believe to the Dxo Specialists than to the people who do blind tests on their own forum being the manufecturers or advertisers of those 1+ smartphones. Such a "Blind Fair Test"

    I feel Oneplus 6 is a good Device With Decent camera. But when u start comparing it with Top Flagship phones. That's when the community cupcakes gets divided . half community defends Oneplus by saying it's a cheaper Device so be happy with what u get. Then there is Half community that says camera is worst

    I still hope to see some decent update for the 5T to reduce oil painting effect. It's almost brilliant after latest beta however there is still a huge gap between what can be and should be achieved.

    As for me, best photos were taken with pixel 2. But, in the darkness 1+6 get less noisy photos.

    What these tests prove is that all the top end smartphones have so good cameras that there are no clear winners or losers.

    Actually it doesn't prove anyting, it is made on the 1+ forum, where no matter of the result one plus owners with defend their smartphones. There also might be fake results in order to show that op 6 is not to far behind. It wasn't made by independent specialists, but by 1+ employees. And if you didn't see there were no P20 Pro, P20 or HTC U12, because in that case there would be nothing to compare. I don't trust there results and don't think that these smartphones are even worth to compare, because 1+ was never good at making good camera algorithms
