Insiders revealed the cost and date of the presentation of smartphones Apple iPhone 13

The autumn presentation of new Apple smartphones, according to the latest insider reports, will take place in mid-September 2021. According to webspy, the new iPhone 13 line will feature four models. Insiders also called the approximate cost of the new iPhone.


The quality of photo and video shooting on the cameras of smartphones Sony Xperia 1 III, Xiaomi 11 Ultra and Pixel 4a 5G was tested by the host of the YouTube channel «Honest Blog» Phil.

When shooting video on the front camera, the worst result was shown by the Sony Xperia 1 III camera, which was unable to transmit an image of the background in an open area and showed just a white illuminated area instead of clouds. The only drawback of the Xiaomi 11 Ultra camera was the intermittent exposure, which leads to a darker frame, but at the same time, the Xiaomi smartphone rendered natural colors better than its competitors.

Shooting video on the main camera also revealed poor color reproduction of the Sony smartphone, and Xiaomi 11 Ultra again became the leader at this stage, according to the blogger. Wide-angle camera stabilization worked best in Sony and Xiaomi smartphones. In terms of color reproduction, the leader was the smartphone Pixel 4a.

The problem with the illumination of clouds in the background appeared on the Sony Xperia 1 III smartphone and when shooting in 4K resolution at 60 frames per second.

Optical zoom works best in the Xiaomi 11 Ultra smartphone. Stabilization during shooting revealed a slight twitch of the Sony device.

Shooting in low light conditions showed the best color reproduction of the Xiaomi 11 Ultra, while the Sony smartphone turned out to be too dark.

Evaluating the results of testing video quality, Phil noted that, despite the identified shortcomings, Sony engineers have significantly improved the quality of shooting and are somewhat closer to the flagships of leading manufacturers. The blogger also noted that the Sony Xperia 1 III’s camera is «sharpened» for using manual settings, and the quality of shooting can be much better in the capable hands of professionals.

Testing the photographic capabilities of smartphone cameras began with a test of shooting the night sky. Smartphones Xiaomi 11 Ultra and Pixel 4a have special modes for this, and Sony took pictures of the sky in manual mode with a shutter speed of 4 minutes. As a result, the most beautiful picture turned out on a pixel, and the most realistic on Xperia 1 III with manual mode. Photographs of illuminated shop windows and advertising signs at night showed high-quality parts for Sony cameras.

In the detail category in portrait mode, the Pixel 4a took the lead, but photos of the Google cameras themselves were somewhat pale, with muted colors.

Shooting with a wide-angle camera against the sun was best done on the Xiaomi 11 Ultra smartphone, but at the same time, the face of the person being filmed became somewhat elongated. Face image on Sony and Google smartphones was dull and desaturated.

The Sony camera, when shooting against the light, also produced an almost completely lit sky. Periodically, such a shortcoming manifested itself in the Xiaomi smartphone. Indoor photography and evening portraits are at their best with the Pixel 4a.

Color reproduction of a car at sunset was the worst for the Xperia 1 III, but the smartphone’s wide-angle camera at the same time provided better image detail.

Photos in normal daylight did not reveal a clear leader. The front-facing camera took advantage of the detail in the Xperia 1 III when shooting into the sun, and the overall image quality was the best in the Pixel 4a.

Summing up the results of testing, Phil noted that he was pleased with Sony, which was able to improve the quality of shooting, despite the identified shortcomings. He also cited the Xperia 1 III’s professional manual mode, where «you can do wonders.»
