Our testing process for phones involves assessing their features, design, performance, cameras, battery life, and overall value in real-world scenarios. We provide initial reviews that are periodically updated to reflect new software updates and compare them against competitor phones like Apple, Samsung, Google, and OnePlus. Camera performance is a key focus, with testing of various modes and imaging enhancements. Battery life is evaluated through typical day use, focused tasks like video calls and streaming, and a video playback test. Performance is measured using benchmarking apps and real-world experiences to assess graphics quality, smoothness of animations, and speed of switching between orientations.

One important feature we tested this year is Emergency SOS, which could have significant implications for user safety. We perform processor-heavy tasks such as photo editing, video exporting, and gaming to gauge the capabilities of each phone. We also consider whether newer versions offer enough additional features to justify upgrading from previous models. By capturing photos and videos in different settings and lighting conditions, we evaluate the camera capabilities of each phone. We also test out new camera modes introduced by manufacturers, like the Action mode on the iPhone 14 or the Unblur tool on the Google Pixel 7.

Battery testing involves assessing how long a phone lasts during typical usage scenarios, as well as more intensive activities like gaming and media streaming. A video playback test is conducted to provide a simple measure of pure battery life. Performance testing includes examining the smoothness of graphics and animations, as well as the speed of tasks like opening the camera app and switching between orientations. We use benchmarking apps to quantitatively measure performance, while also providing our own anecdotal experiences with using the phone in our review.

Our review process includes comparing the camera hardware and image processing capabilities of newer phone models with their predecessors. In addition to technical specifications, we assess real-world performance by taking photos and videos in different environments. Battery life testing encompasses both typical daily use and more demanding tasks to provide a comprehensive overview of each phone’s endurance. Performance measurements include benchmarking tests and observations on graphics quality, animation smoothness, and responsiveness in various tasks. We also consider whether new features introduced in an updated phone justify upgrading from previous models.

Overall, our reviews aim to provide a comprehensive assessment of each phone’s features, design, performance, cameras, battery life, and overall value. We update these reviews periodically to reflect new software updates and compare them against competitors in the market. Camera performance is a key aspect of our testing, with evaluations of new imaging modes and enhancements. Battery life is assessed in various scenarios, and performance is measured using benchmarking apps and real-world experiences to evaluate graphics quality, animation smoothness, and app responsiveness.
