The results reveal a favourable scenario for iPhone variants as the iPhone X, iPhone 8, and iPhone 8 Plus took the top three spots while Samsung's Galaxy S8 came slightly behind the trio.
For instance, the variations between the Galaxy S8, Galaxy S8+, and Galaxy S8 Active are minimal considering they sport the same camera sensors.
For instance, no mention of Google's Pixel smartphones - sporting some of the best cameras in 2017, the placement of iPhone 8 above iPhone 8 Plus - clearly when the latter has an improved camera, and the placement of two-generation-old iPhone 6s Plus above the Galaxy S8 and Galaxy Note 8 are things that stand out of the list.
Add to that, the massive presence of iPhone variants is strange on the publication that has been considered "anti-Apple" in the past.
