iPhone X Is A Single Point Behind The Google Pixel 2 On DxOMark, Ties With Huawei Mate 10
It’s been a week since the iPhone X was launched to the general public. While the device packs some powerful internals under the hood, it’s already considered one of the fastest smartphones on the planet. The device also features an impressive camera that is worthy of a crown. However, it’s 2017 and we rely on the market standards to judge it. Now, through the testing process over at DsCMark, there’s a score awarded to the device according to its performance, taking into account various aspects. According to DxOMark, the iPhone X’s dual-lens camera setup at the back received a whopping 97 score, which is only a single point behind the Google Pixel 2. So let’s dive in to see some more details on the subject.
iPhone X Falls Behind The Google Pixel 2 On DxOMark, Receives 97 Points
The Google Pixel 2 scored 98 on the DxOMark test, while the Huawei Mate 10 was the runner-up with 97 points. This means that the iPhone X and the Huawei Mate 10 ties on DxOMark rankings. However, it does not necessarily mean that the two devices share the same hardware as one could be better than the other on a different aspect. In all the necessary categories, the iPhone X did not fail to impress.
One thing to note here is that the device has been awarded the number one position in the photo taking abilities. This is because the device earned a score of 101 in the photo category. To compare this with the Google Pixel 2, the latter was awarded 99 points in the camera category. However, the video category is where the iPhone X lacked behind the likes of Google Pixel 2, scoring 89 while the latter received 96 points.
The DxOMark publication pinpoints that the iPhone X features the best camera if you’re looking to take still shots.
“With all of the analyses completed, the scores calculated, and the results verified, the iPhone X turns in an excellent result, delivering outstanding images for smartphone photography enthusiasts. It’s exceptional for stills, achieving the best Photo sub-score yet at 101 points. The overall score is affected by a slightly lower result for video, but at 97 points, the iPhone X ties with the Huawei Mate 10 for the second-highest score in our database of overall mobile image quality. For portraits, the improved telephoto lens delivers sharp results even indoors, and the bokeh simulation produces a natural and pleasing background blur. Outdoors, exposures are outstanding, with great dynamic range, impressive skies, good fine detail, and punchy color rendering. Add to all that the extra features on the front-facing camera, including a Portrait mode for blurred-background selfies, and the iPhone X delivers one hell of a smartphone camera.”
Nonetheless, cameras on both of these smartphones are pretty impressive. One beats the other in different categories. We can simply say that if this standard is to be considered, the iPhone X is best for taking photos while the Google Pixel 2 would do good in the video category. However, it basically all comes down to consumer preference. It’s is also possible that the rankings change as the scoring system changes in the future.
