10 смартфонов с лучшими камерами по версии dxomark

Update summary

110 camera

115 photo

99 video

With our new Wide and Night results included in the ranking, the Xiaomi Mi 9’s Photo score increases from 112 to 115. Its overall DXOMARK Camera score is lifted from 107 to 110, thus ensuring the Xiaomi a top-5 position in our smartphone camera ranking.


At 16mm, the Mi 9’s angle of view isn’t as wide as we’ve seen on some other devices, but certainly helps you squeeze more into the frame, compared to the primary camera. Outdoor wide shots display good exposure, with fairly wide dynamic range, and noise is generally well-controlled. Color rendering and white balance are also pleasant. The Mi 9’s main weakness is a strong loss of sharpness that is visible at all wide-angle focal lengths. The wide-angle module also slightly underperforms indoors, with low target exposures and more limited dynamic range; moreover, colors can be somewhat undersaturated, and ringing artifacts are also visible.

The Mi 9 is a good performer for night photography overall, ranking in the top half of devices tested under our new protocol. Auto flash generally triggers accurately for night portraits, but often fires unnecessarily for low-light cityscapes, too, which impacts its image processing pipeline and negatively affects image quality. The Mi 9’s LED flash is an excellent option when it is deployed appropriately, however, with mainly good exposure and color in portraits. That said, a slight white balance cast is evident using flash under some artificial light sources and detail on faces is a little low. With the flash off, low-light cityscapes aren’t quite as impressive either, with slightly low target exposures, a loss of detail, and significant noise—meaning that the Mi 9’s performance doesn’t threaten the top performers.

Samsung Galaxy S20 Ultra

The Xiaomi Mi 9 achieves one of the currently lowest scores in our analysis of wide-angle camera performance, with the main weaknesses low detail, significant softness in the outer field, and low target exposures in indoor shots. Outdoor exposure is pretty good, and although dynamic range isn’t quite as wide as the best-performing devices, it’s acceptable. Color rendering is OK, too, with reasonably good saturation; and although white balance tends to be slightly warm, it’s not unpleasant. Noise is generally well-controlled outdoors, too, but there is a loss of fine detail in intricate areas.

Xiaomi claims that the Mi 9’s wide-angle module offers an “ultra-wide” field of view, but tested in the default wide-angle setting, we found the minimum focal length to be around 16mm, so you can’t fit as much in the frame compared to such devices as the Samsung S10 5G.

One interesting aspect of the Xiaomi Mi 9’s performance, however, is its control of geometric distortion when a face is detected close to the edges of the frame. As you can see in the example below, when there are no people in the shot, the device applies some correction for straighter lines in the buildings, but doesn’t do this in the example with a person close to the edge so as to avoid distorting the subject. It’s not totally consistent, so it doesn’t always apply the correction, but it’s a bonus when it does.

Huawei P40 Pro

Overall, the Xiaomi Mi 9 isn’t one of the top-performing devices for night photography under our new testing protocol, but achieves pretty good results with the flash forced on, showing good exposure with very little vignetting, excellent repeatability, well-controlled noise levels, and fairly accurate white balance when shooting both with flash-only or when using the flash with 5 lux of ambient tungsten illumination. On the downside, texture rendering is not quite as good as some competitors, and we’ve observed some slight autofocus instabilities when using the Mi 9 camera’s LED flash.

With the flash set to auto, the flash tends to trigger for landscape images without illuminating most parts of the scene. More sensibly, the flash also triggers for portrait shots; faces are properly exposed, but levels of detail are fairly low and we observed slight white balance casts.

Image quality for cityscapes at flash-off settings in low light isn’t among the best we’ve seen. Target exposures are pretty good, but dynamic range is limited, with clipping evident in bright lights, and there’s noticeably less detail compared to the top-performing devices.

A bit of a mixed result using the Xiaomi Mi 9’s dedicated night mode, but it’s not the worst we’ve tested and night portraits are acceptable in some conditions. Under bright artificial light, exposure is generally accurate, but there’s a loss of detail on moving elements and faces can be out of focus, and there is a strong white balance cast under sodium vapor lighting.

Video scores explained


With an overall score 98 points, the OnePlus 7 Pro comes very close to the top performers for video, just behind the Samsung Galaxy S10+ 5G with 100 points and the Xiaomi Mi 9 with 99. The overall video score is derived from performance and results across a range of attributes in the same way as the Photo score: Exposure (86), Color (89), Autofocus (95), Texture (77), Noise (76), Artifacts (74), and Stabilization (91).

With excellent scores across the board, the OnePlus 7 Pro is a consistent performer for video as well as for photo, making it a solid all-rounder for multimedia creative types. Results for video exposure are very close to the best, with some slightly bright but acceptable target exposure measurements recorded in our lab analysis in most light conditions. The OnePlus 7 Pro’s exposure isn’t quite as good in extremely low light (5 lux) compared to the Xiaomi Mi 9 and the Huawei P30 Pro, but footage remains usable even in these challenging conditions.

Dynamic range is slightly limited compared to the Apple iPhone XS Max’s, which is our top-ranked device for video exposure thanks to its more effective HDR processing. So in bright and high-contrast conditions, expect to see a little clipping in the brightest highlights, but otherwise the OnePlus 7 Pro delivers some really nice video exposures.

Video color is also very good, with pleasant rendering and vivid and well-saturated hues in most movie files. As you can see from the lab measurement chart below, underexposure in extremely low light (5 lux) reduces saturation, but otherwise color pops nicely. In fact, in our natural test scene analysis, color is noticeably richer in the OnePlus 7 Pro videos compared to the iPhone XS Max and Samsung S10+ files.

White balance is good as well, with generally accurate results in both outdoor and indoor movies, as well as fairly smooth adaptation under changing lighting conditions.

The 4K video files ensure excellent results for texture and fine detail preservation, with outstanding acutance scores of over 90% in both outdoor and indoor movies, putting it ahead of the other top-performing devices for video texture. Detail isn’t quite as impressive in very low light (5 lux), but the OnePlus 7 Pro still holds its own against such top performers as the Huawei P30 Pro in darker environments, and in bright light, it’s a cut above.

The OnePlus 7 Pro handles noise well generally, achieving good scores in our perceptual analyses of natural test scene videos both outdoors and indoors. However, with respect to moving elements, the OnePlus 7 Pro’s denoising algorithm struggles to be effective. The result can be somewhat distracting on playback, with a more obvious buildup of noise on moving subjects compared to static areas.

Video autofocus is excellent, however, with scores up there with the best performers. It works well in all lighting conditions, with good reaction times ensuring quick lock-on, and accurate tracking capabilities for keeping things sharp as the camera or the subject moves. Stability during scene changes is good, but the OnePlus 7 Pro’s stabilization system isn’t quite as effective as the best solutions we’ve tested, especially when correcting walking motion. A slight jello effect, a difference in sharpness between frames, and some frame shifts are noticeable in a few videos, so its performance in this regard doesn’t quite measure up to that of such top performers as the Huawei P30 Pro and the iPhone XS Max.

Best for Video: Huawei P40 Pro

The Huawei P40 Pro isn’t only the best phone we have tested for photo capture, it also tops our ranking for Video with 105 points. Like for stills, the camera does not show any real weaknesses in any of the test categories, and is either the best or among the best in all of them. Video footage shows good exposure and wide dynamic range, with only some minor clipping in challenging high-contrast scenes; and as long as you are not recording under low tungsten light, white balance and color rendering are mostly accurate.

The P40 Pro renders detail pretty well, but we occasionally saw a loss of fine textures. Noise is very well under control in good light, but temporal noise becomes visible under low tungsten illumination. Video autofocus works as well as that for stills, delivering quick and reliable focus with good tracking, and the stabilization system effectively keeps things steady when walking or holding the camera still in your hands, making the P40 Pro a true mobile video powerhouse.

Huawei P40 Pro review

Also consider: Competition at the top of our Video ranking is fierce and the differences between devices are pretty small. Both the Honor 30 Pro+ and the Xiaomi Mi 10 Pro are almost on the same level as the Huawei P40 Pro and are definitely worth a closer look for any budding mobile cinematographers.

6 место: Samsung Galaxy Note 10+ – большой смартфон со стилусом

Note 10+ Pocket-lint

Samsung Galaxy Note 10+ продолжает рейтинг камер смартфонов DxOMark, набрав 117 очков. Его фотографическая часть смотрится совсем скромно на фоне гонки мегапикселей, но эта скромность обманчива. Его сенсоры на 12 (основная, 1/2,55″), 12 (приближающая х2, 1/3,6″), 16 (широкий угол, 1/3,1″) и 0,3 (ToF 3D) Мп оснащены системами стабилизации, хорошо передают цвета, а основной модуль еще и отличается переменной апертурой F/1,5-F/2,4. Поэтому высокий балл экспертов вполне обоснован.

Главной особенностью Samsung Galaxy Note 10+, безусловно, является поддержка стилуса, чувствительного к силе нажатия. Экран аппарата радует не только высоким разрешением 3К, большими размерами 6,8″, но и формой. У него нет «бровей» и «капель», фронтальный объектив вписан в небольшое отверстие, а скругления углов минимальны. Это отличный вариант для тех, кто соскучился за строгими прямыми углами матриц, в котором огорчает разве что цена от 65 тысяч рублей.

Video scores explained

With an overall Video score of 102, the Mi CC9 Pro Premium Edition is the top scorer for video recording of any phone we have tested to date, edging out the Google Pixel 4 and the Samsung Galaxy Note 10+ 5G. The overall Video score is derived from performance and results across a range of attributes in the same way as the Photo score; in this case Exposure (87), Color (91), Autofocus (98), Texture (74), Noise (83), Artifacts (82), and Stabilization (94).

Video exposures are impressively accurate, even in low-light conditions, with generally smooth adaptation of the exposure to changing light conditions. We did find that exposure change steps can be visible sometimes, though.


Dynamic range is also very good, but not the best we’ve seen. White balance is generally good, and it typically renders colors pleasingly, although there can be a slight color cast when shooting indoors. Autofocus is fast to react, good at tracking moving subjects, and smooth when converging onto a subject—all contributing to the phone’s excellent video Autofocus sub-score of 98.

Color rendering is also very good, giving the phone one of our highest video Color sub-scores of 91, only a point behind our top scorer in this category, the Google Pixel 4 at 92, and slightly ahead of the Mate 30 Pro and Galaxy Note 10+ 5G.

The Mi CC9 Pro Premium Edition is one of a growing number of phones that captures video in 4K resolution by default, and it does a good job of it. For example, detail preservation when shooting in 4K is excellent, helping it achieve a high video Texture sub-score of 74.

The phone also makes a good tradeoff between rendering detail and controlling noise. However, its video recordings do have some artifacts—in particular, judder is visible when panning, and frames are sometimes dropped. There can also be some color fringing. Stabilization is quite good and very efficient; however, there can be some variation in sharpness between frames when shooting indoors, and some small portions of the scene that don’t all move correctly relative to one another.

Conclusion: First smartphone camera to score 100 for video

Overall, the Galaxy S10 5G performs slightly better than the excellent S10+ in our tests. Samsung’s move to 4K default resolution for video, and a beneficial switch to using the telephoto camera for bokeh effects in portrait mode, give the 5G version a 3-point score bump to put it at the very top of all our tested mobile devices. The S10 5G also gets to claim the title of being the first smartphone to score 100 points for video. Buyers of the 5G version of the S10 may be primarily interested in its next-generation connectivity, but will get improvements to photos and videos as an additional benefit.

As with other devices with a similar camera setup, the S10 5G’s ultra-wide-angle camera did not have an impact on its DxOMark score. Still, an ultra-wide lens is a very useful tool for many, especially landscape photographers and anyone hoping to capture images of large groups of people. Similarly, the added TOF sensor in the 5G version of the S10 doesn’t affect its score, but does allow for better bokeh effects when desired in videos, and should improve performance for depth-sensitive augmented reality applications (for example). It will also be interesting to see if Samsung is able to provide the upgraded bokeh quality to S10+ owners via firmware update, since both models use cameras with the same listed specifications.

OnePlus 7 Pro camera review (originally published May 14, 2019)

Chinese manufacturer OnePlus has released a new flagship in the shape of the OnePlus 7 Pro. The camera in the new model ups the ante over its predecessor by packing a triple-camera solution with ultra-wide and telephoto lenses.

The primary camera utilizes Sony’s latest IMX586 48Mp Quad-Bayer sensor that combines the signal from four adjacent pixels into one for the final output. So the result is a 12Mp (4000×3000-pixel) resolution final image, but with the promise of improved color, detail, and dynamic range. The ultra-wide lens is coupled to a 16Mp sensor, and there’s an 8Mp sensor dedicated to zoom shots using the tele-lens.

Other features include optical image stabilization on the telephoto and main lenses as well as a combined laser and PDAF autofocus system. In video mode, the OnePlus shoots 4K video at default settings. Read on to discover the scores and the full analysis in our comprehensive review.

Key camera specifications:

  • Triple-camera setup
  • Primary: 48Mp Sony IMX586 sensor (12Mp output size), 26mm-equivalent lens with f/1.6 aperture and OIS
  • Ultra-wide: 16Mp sensor, 17mm-equivalent lens with f/2.2 aperture
  • Telephoto: 8Mp sensor, 78mm-equivalent lens with f/2.4 aperture and OIS
  • Laser/PDAF autofocus
  • Dual-LED flash
  • 4K/60fps video (4K/30fps at default settings)

Please note: The camera firmware used for the DxOMark tests is not yet currently available to consumers. OnePlus will make it available as an over-the-air update before the end of the month.

Conclusion

If you’re looking for an advanced camera phone from a well-established manufacturer at a lower cost than a premium flagship, Samsung’s Galaxy S20+ fits the bill. Its quad-camera offers dedicated wide, ultra-wide, zoom, and bokeh sensors, and in many respects its image quality is comparable to the more expensive Samsung S20 Ultra. Its ultra-wide camera and bokeh shots are particularly impressive, and exposure and color are excellent from all its cameras in virtually all lighting conditions. Autofocus is accurate and reliable, and detail is good, even if a bit oversharpened.


That said, the standard 12MP primary sensor on the S20+ isn’t as good for noise or texture compared to the more advanced processing now widely available on top-end smartphones. Its zoom camera is also a little quirky, with the 64MP sensor and 29mm-equivalent lens effectively a digital zoom solution for stills. This high-resolution sensor doubles up to allow the S20+ to capture 8K video, which could be a bonus if you need that much resolution in your movies; but used for stills, the zoom shots on the S20+ aren’t as good as those from devices with a longer focal length tele-lens.

Those caveats aside, the S20+ performed well in our series of challenging tests and fully deserves its top ten spot in the DXOMARK Camera rankings.

Pros

  • Accurate exposure, even in low light
  • Wide dynamic range
  • Vivid and pleasant color
  • Good detail in outdoor images
  • Excellent ultra-wide camera

Cons

  • Visible noise, especially indoors and in low light
  • Ringing, aliasing, and cyan shift artifacts
  • Low detail with long-range zoom
  • Underexposure at night in flash-off mode

Pros

  • Accurate target exposure in most conditions
  • Vivid and pleasant color outdoors
  • Fast and reliable autofocus
  • Good texture rendering

Cons

  • Visible noise indoors and in low light
  • Slightly limited dynamic range
  • Stabilization could be improved
  • Visible ringing and judder artifacts

Best for Night: Huawei P40 Pro

The current ne plus ultra for night and low light photography is, again, the Huawei P40 Pro. Its 70-point top score in this category is based on outstanding performance across all sub-tests—flash-on, flash-auto, flash-off, and night mode.

With the flash forced on, images show a very good texture/noise balance, good exposure, and accurate white balance, making the Huawei device a good option for flash portraits in dark settings. Both exposure and white balance are also very consistent across a series of images.

When shooting in flash-auto mode, the flash usually triggers for portraits and images show good exposure and dynamic range. Exposure is not only good on the subject’s face but also for the background, which indicates Huawei might be using a frame-stacking algorithm with flash shots.

With the flash switched off, night shots show accurate exposure and a wide dynamic range, resulting in good highlight detail, even in difficult night cityscapes. In addition, it still renders fine textures nicely in low light and controls image noise very well. When using its dedicated Night mode, the P40 Pro is capable of achieving better exposure and color than most rivals, but there is some room for improvement in terms of texture and noise.

Huawei P40 Pro review

Also consider: Just as ultra-wide angle cameras are a Samsung domain, Huawei is currently ahead of the pack in terms of low-light performance. In our ranking, the P40 Pro is followed by two models from Huawei’s sister brand Honor, the V30 Pro and 30 Pro+. Both come pretty close to the Huawei flagship but cannot quite match it, with the P40 Pro maintaining a small advantage in all sub-tests.

Conclusion

If anyone still needed convincing that Xiaomi is one of the top camera designers in the mobile business after the Mi CC9 Pro Premium Edition’s stellar performance at the end of last year, the Mi 10 Pro should definitely cement Xiaomi’s reputation. Despite using very similar imaging hardware as the Premium Edition, Xiaomi managed to improve the Mi 10 Pro in several key areas, thanks to a combination of refined tuning and the processing boost of the Snapdragon 865 chipset.

The new device’s camera delivers excellent (and sometimes class-leading) results in virtually all test categories, making it a top choice for any mobile photography or videography enthusiast, as well as a very deserving new leader in our DXOMARK Camera ranking.

Test summary

96 selfie

101 photo

88 video

With an overall DxOMark Selfie score of 96 points, the Samsung Galaxy S10+ offers the best front camera performance for both still images and video that we have seen in our testing so far. With an outstanding Photo score of 101 points, Samsung has managed to improve the S10+ front camera in almost every area over last year’s Galaxy Note 9.

A class-leading performance for color ensures that the S10+ captures nice skin tones, with accurate white balance and pleasant color rendering in almost all conditions. (Only in low light do colors look a little dull sometimes.) Target exposure on faces is good down to very low light levels and dynamic range has also improved over the Note 9. Dynamic range still isn’t perfect, with some highlight clipping on faces and backgrounds in high-contrast scenes evident, but our testers were impressed with how the system handled very challenging scenes.

As we’ve become accustomed to with Samsung devices, noise is well-managed both on faces as well as in the background, and particularly in low light, where the S10+ is capable of some very smooth results. The trade-off is a loss of fine detail on faces, which becomes noticeable under typical indoor lighting and in low light, but Samsung engineers have managed to increase image detail in the new model a little, while keeping noise levels very close to the Note 9’s. Our testers also found the S10+ autofocus to be accurate and repeatable, achieving sharp images from close-up through to selfie-stick shooting distances, so you can be confident faces will pretty much always be in focus. Depth of field is a little shallow, so backgrounds and people at the back of group portraits are rendered slightly soft, but it’s not a major concern.

The addition of a depth-sensing second camera has improved the quality of the simulated bokeh effect in Portrait mode. The S10+ does very well at isolating foreground subjects from the background and applies a nice gradient to the background blur, making for a pretty realistic simulated bokeh effect overall. In addition, the S10+ offers one of the best front camera flash modes we have seen, with good target exposure and well-controlled noise levels. There are also some unwanted effects, such as color shading and quantization or vignetting visible when shooting in flash mode, but these aren’t too concerning for such challenging conditions.

The S10+ also puts in an excellent performance in our video testing, recording the highest video selfie score so far, thanks to good results for color, focus, texture, and stabilization. The camera also captures good target exposure on faces, but lags a little bit behind the very best in terms of dynamic range, due to the lack of HDR processing in video mode. Our testers also observed a few exposure instabilities in video.

Other video attributes are quite similar to those in our still image analysis. Both skin tones and overall color rendering are natural and pleasant, and the camera maintains a decent texture/noise balance, with good detail rendering in bright light and under indoor lighting, as well as well-controlled noise levels. Image stabilization is generally efficient, too, but some jerkiness remains uncorrected, especially when holding the camera still while recording.

Conclusion

With the X2 Pro, Realme has put a fairly capable imaging system into a phone that’s available at an attractive price. It nails the basics: photos and videos are generally properly exposed and in focus. Image also show a wide dynamic range, which makes the X2 Pro a good smartphone to shoot with in challenging high-contrast situations. The 2x optical zoom camera module delivers pleasant all-around images as well. But heavy noise, non-negligible artifacts, and other issues hold back its overall performance. A few years ago, the Realme X2 Pro would have been an astounding value; but today, the field is crowded with competing offerings that are also aimed at budget-conscious buyers.

  • Fairly good detail in outdoor conditions
  • Good texture/noise balance in zoom shots
  • Nice ultra-wide shots with little distortion

Cons

  • Strong luminance noise
  • Strong ringing and notable softness in corners
  • White balance issues, especially indoors and in low light
  • Depth estimation artifacts in bokeh simulation
  • Strong chroma noise in night scenes

Video

Cons

  • Luminance noise outdoors and indoors
  • Low texture in all conditions
  • Poor AF tracking in low light
  • Reduced dynamic range in all conditions
  • Aliasing, moiré, and moving texture artifacts
  • Poor stabilization
