The Flickr site lists show that the users of the website most willingly shared in 2017 photos taken thanks to Apple smartphones.
The end of the year is the period when all summaries become popular. Flickr, summarizing the activity of its users, gave the information that half of them sent mainly photos taken with smartphones. It is a sign of the times. In the past, taking a photo was associated with the purchase and wearing not only a separate device, but also with additional payment for the film and its developing. Today, everyone is a photographer thanks to the availability of the camera at any time in your pocket. 33% of users take pictures with digital SLRs, 12% with compacts and 4% with mirrorless cameras.
Among the brands, Apple reigns with iPhones smartphones. The second and third place are brands that are invariably associated with photo cameras: Canon and Nikon. And which iPhones are the most? The list includes, in turn, iPhone 6, iPhone 6s, iPhone 5s, iPhone 7 and 7 Plus. Only on the 4th place appear in the role of cameras Samsung smartphones: Galaxy S7, Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S5. - On the sixth, Motorola's smartphones: Moto G3, Moto X, Moto G2. In the 10th place we will find LG G4, G3 and G2, and on the eleventh place - HTC One, One M8, One M9.
Does it really mean that we use Apple smartphones in the role of cameras? Not necessarily. The comparison concerns only one website and says a lot, but not so much about the global market as about the Flickr users. Perhaps it also talks a bit about the inclination of iphone users to share photos on social networking sites.
