Drone Mapping comparison between the top 5 Apps - Pix4D, FPV Camera, Drone Deploy

Since mapping is getting popular with drones I wanted to run a test comparison with the main 5 available Mapping Apps. These were all flown separately at the same location within the same hour, same day, with the DJI Phantom 4.
Pix4D
FPV Camera
Drone Deploy
Altizure
Commander
These Apps all use their own different back ends to process the photos to produce their final result.

I think Drone Deploy did the best but since it's been corrupting jobs lately I can't use it, what do you think? Which did you prefer. Comments and suggestions for different platforms to test next.
UPDATE Sept 2016: DroneDeploy is seriously broken for the last month or so. It has corrupted the last several shots and I can't seriously recommend DroneDeploy for anything right now.
UPDATE Dec 2016: DroneDeploy still has some White Balance issues (switching throughout the flight) but it's not as bad as it was.
See my newer video here for a comparison of DroneDeploy on the Phantom 4 and Mavic
