Celebrate International Cat Day by taking a look at these photos of Stella the cat taken by 33 different phones. It's the cutest camera comparison you'll ever experience.
There are pictures from flagships like iPhone XS, Samsung Galaxy S10E and Pixel 3 to budget wonders like the Moto G7. It's not scientific, but it's interesting to comparing the differences in the photos from each phone.
Look out, there's a cat on the stove! This was taken with the iPhone 4. This is one of the oldest phones in this gallery, but the image holds up.
Warning: There are many photos of Stella sleeping. Here she is sleeping on the side of a MacBook Air. This was taken with the iPhone 5S which handled the super-dark moment pretty well.
iPhone 6S Plus
A pillow is the perfect home for a kitty-cat. The iPhone 6S Plus exposes this backlit scene well. Take a look at how you can see the building out the open window. However, there is a bunch of noise in the shadows on the wall to the left.
iPhone 6S Plus
Here's another iPhone 6S Plus photo. This time Stella is soaking up some sun.
The iPhone 7 brought a nice upgrade to the iPhone's dynamic range. Notice the colors in Stella's fur and in the background.
The iPhone 8 has a fantastic camera on it but is overshadowed by its iPhone X sibling, which has the same standard camera. Sometimes Stella just needs a shoulder nap.
iPhone 8 Plus
This photo of Stella napping (told you she sleeps a lot) really shows off the HDR abilities on the iPhone 8 Plus.
iPhone XS Max
And now a portrait mode photo from the iPhone XS Max. Stella is being protective of her orange cat toy.
I caught Stella in a moment of self-reflection with the iPhone XR. Absolutely love the dynamic range and colors here.
This photo of Stella shows off how impressive the Galaxy S9 is with its dual-aperture. The room was pretty dim. But the phone switched to a wider aperture (f/1.5) and got a really great shot of her.
Galaxy Note 9
One downside to Samsung's dual-aperture is, when it switches to the faster aperture, photos can easily look soft from motion blur. Here Stella tucks her paws in, but the movement is enough to make things look soft when combined with noise reduction.
Samsung Galaxy S10E
The Samsung Galaxy S10E has one of my favorite to use cameras on it this year. Here it captures Stella, yet again, napping.
This is a portrait mode photo of Stella taken with the OnePlus 5. It handled separating her from the background really well even if it is a tad dark.
Here's a portrait mode photo from the OnePlus 6. The lighting is better, so is the portrait mode when compared to the OnePlus 5.
And here's another portrait mode photo, this time from the Google Pixel 2. There is so much detail in her face.
Red Hydrogen One
When you take a 3D photo with the Red Hydrogen One, it also saves a 2D version, which you see here.
Moto G4 Play
I can't believe this photo was taken with a budget phone. Check out the detail the Moto G4 Play was able to capture in Stella's fur.
Cameras on budget phones are all over the place. Motorola makes cheap phones with decent image quality. Here's a photo from the Moto E4.
Moto G5 Plus
Here, the Moto G5 Plus shows of its dynamic range. It doesn't compete with the iPhone or Pixel, but it's still impressive -- especially when you consider it costs hundreds less than flagship devices.
Motorola Moto G7
For $299 the Moto G7 is a steal. Its camera lives up to the price, but won't compete with the likes of the Pixel 3A. Stella is always on guard even when napping.
Alcatel Idol 4S
A picture from the Alcatel Idol 4S of Stella sleeping. The quality is similar to that of the iPhone 4, which was released years earlier.
Alcatel Idol 5S
And here's a photo from the Alcatel Idol 5S. Image quality is decent for a budget phone.
Kodak Ektra phone
Another photo of Stella napping, this time taken with the Kodak Ektra phone. I like the way the colors in her fur are rendered.
Sony Xperia X Compact
Stella in profile, taken by the Sony Xperia X Compact. The camera on this little phone is crazy good. Notice the detail, dynamic range and minimal noise.
