iPhone Remains Flickr's Most Popular Camera in 2015 Ahead of Canon, Nikon and Samsung

Flickr has published a 2015 Year in Review that again crowns the iPhone as the most popular camera, used for 42% of photos uploaded, based on EXIF data analysis. iPhones finished ahead of the Canon EOS, used for 27% of uploaded photos, and the Nikon D, used for 16% of uploaded photos.

Flickr-iPhone
The photo sharing website's cameras page lists the iPhone 6 as the most popular camera in the Flickr community, trailed by the iPhone 5s, Galaxy S5, iPhone 6 Plus and iPhone 5. Apple is the most popular camera brand on Flickr overall, ranking ahead of Samsung, Canon, Nikon, Sony, Motorola and LG.

iPhones have been the most popular smartphone cameras on Flickr for several years, which is largely unsurprising since DSLRs and some point-and-shoot cameras cannot be carried around as easily. In January 2015, Apple eclipsed Nikon to become the second most popular camera brand on Flickr.

No it isn’t. It might be the one a friend has that zooms into the mountain a mile into the distance that your iPhone can’t pick up.

Makes me wonder how accurate the results are. What would happen if they compared all iOS cameras to all Android cameras instead of specific brands?
Why would you wonder about the accuracy of the results? They are what they are. The report is about the most popular camera.

My Canon DSLR is better than my iPhone and has lenses worthing 5 iPhones.... But most of the time I don't carry my DSLR with me while I'm carrying my iPhone everywhere.

But I know, you HAVE TO downplay Apple, even with a post with so little meaning as this.
