Samsung Galaxy S9 outclasses iPhone X and Pixel 2 in the DxOMark
Samsung Galaxy S9+ has been ranked as the number one smartphone camera by DxOMark. The camera managed to beat industry favourites like the iPhone X and the Pixel 2.
Whenever we decide to click pictures from phones, we ask somebody who has an Iphone. We have always wanted Iphone pictures and later Pixel 2 but it seems like this trend and obsession is going to get over. Galaxy S9+ is the new camera phone to go to.
Previously the Google Pixel 2 XL had the highest score of 98 points on the DxOMark mobile photography tests, which looks at both stills and video quality on the smartphone camera. Samsung Galaxy S9+ is ahead of the Google Pixel 2 XL and Apple IPhone X which has a score of 97 points on the test.
In case you were wondering how these cameras are rated and scored and how authentic this is – DxOMark scores smartphone on the basis of various tests in controlled environments. The tests are conducted on the device’s camera ability in brightly lit conditions, dark lighting and pictures using the device’s flash.
Their official blog states that “DxOMark’s Mobile scores and rankings are based on testing every camera using an identical, extensive process that includes shooting nearly 1,500 images and dozens of clips totaling more than two hours of video. The tests take place in both lab and real-world situations, using a wide variety of subjects.”
The Galaxy S9+ primary camera comes with a 12 megapixel primary lens with a variable aperture of f/1.5 or f/2.4. The option of switching to the extra wide aperture of f/1.5 lets the smartphone capture crisp images even in extremely dimly-lit conditions.
The secondary camera module comes with a 2x telephoto lens along with a f/2.4 aperture. Both lenses get optical image stabilization on the Galaxy S9+. The camera also gets Dual-pixel PDAF on the main camera module.
If you are one of those who look at camera specifications more than any other thing in the phone, here’s the best one for you.
