    I made a quick comparison photo of the rear camera image using the Model 3, Model S, and Model X. (No touchups done on any photos)

    The cars were parked exactly in the same spot, under overcast skies.
    As I can’t get screen grabs directly from the car, I tried to take the same photos of the screens trying to avoid moire artifact showing up.

    Original (flipped) image also shown for reference.

    3 image looks good to me. Looks most like the iPhone photo.

    Nice comparison. I guess I'll keep my Model S....or maybe trade it in for an iPhone X

    The 3 image is clearly inferior — less contrast and resolution. The X and S should look the same, as they do, as both cars use the same camera and touchscreen. One would think that the 3 would also have the same camera, and maybe it does. Perhaps the difference is the screen.

    The S is definitely the best in low light conditions. Then X, then 3.
