The battle of the camera phones is pretty intense, with the iPhone Pro and the Samsung Galaxy S Ultra the two biggest heavyweights fighting it out. Each brand's flagship camera phones excel in different areas, but an intriguing direct comparison in a very specific situation has lit up social media. 

Tom 'the tech chap' put the Galaxy S23 Ultra vs iPhone 14 Pro Max to the test in the mass photo shoot (formerly known as a music festival) that is Glastonbury festival. He took snaps of Elton John on stage from in the crowd, and the difference in the results is quite stunning (see our guide to the best camera phones for our own take).
