The Pro-grade Camera Phone Shootout 2022: Google Pixel 7 Pro vs Apple iPhone 14 Pro Max vs Xiaomi 12T Pro

There are various considerations that factor into the purchase decision for smartphones. Where performance, pricing, and aesthetics have long been a part of the equation, mobile photography is a relative newcomer to the fray, having climbed the popularity ladder in recent years.

It’s an area that continues to see growing competition and innovation from different tech names, including the likes of Apple, Google, and Xiaomi. The trio has released their latest offerings into the field, with each packing in plenty of brawn for a powerful camera performance.

The iPhone 14 Pro Max, for instance, features a 48MP main camera, a 12 MP ultra-wide camera, and a quad-pixel sensor, which is similar to the Google Pixel 7 Pro‘s setup (50MP main, 12MP ultra-wide, and 48MP with 5x telephoto). In comparison, the Xiaomi 12T Pro rises to the challenge with a whopping 200MP smartphone camera, but how do all these specs translate to real-life performance?
