DxOMark has always been a trusted source for reviews. That can be argued but it’s only one of the many sites we check for reviews and analysis of some of the latest smartphones introduced in the market. The team doesn’t just look at premium flagship devices. It also tests a number of mid-range phones, checking both the rear camera system and the selfie shooter. Cameras and lenses are also reviewed to help consumers make an informed decision. DxOMark has recently made a new list of the ‘Best Smartphone Cameras’.
The last list from DxOMark we featured here was back in December 2019. We noted the Best All-Rounder (Huawei Mate 30 Pro and Xiaomi Mi CC9 Pro Premium Edition), Best for Video (Apple iPhone 11 Pro Max), Best for Ultra-Wide (Samsung Galaxy Note 10+ 5G), and Best for Night photography (Huawei Mate 30 Pro).
All these phones were reviewed over six months ago. New flagships have surfaced already and so a new list has been released by DxOMark. Note that the phones on the list are based on DxOMark’s recent reviews.
The smartphone ‘Best for Photo‘ right now is the Huawei P40 Pro. It’s currently on top of DxOMark Mobile rankings. It’s also the ‘Best for Video‘,’Best for Night‘, and ‘Best for Zoom‘. ‘Best for Wide‘ is the Samsung Galaxy S20 Ultra. The latter is presently Top 5 on the main list. ‘Best for Bokeh‘ is the Samsung Galaxy Note 10+ 5G which is 8th in Mobile Ranking with a score of 117.
So it really is a battle between Huawei and Samsung. The top mobile Chinese OEM is always the ‘King’ when it comes to cameras. The Huawei P phones always get the crown. They may be replaced by other phones but will eventually be taken over again by the next-gen Huawei Mate model in the last quarter of each year.
