DxOMark awards iPhone X camera the highest score yet for photos

Peter, 07 November 2017

The best display and the best still camera belong to the same phone – the Apple iPhone X. Or at least if you believe DxO to be the ultimate authority on this, which you probably shouldn't. Anyway, the company gave the iPhone X 101 points for photography, edging out Samsung Galaxy Note8 and Huawei Mate 10 Pro (both scored 100).

DxO commended the iPhone X for very good exposure and accurate colors in all lighting conditions. The camera offered good detail with and without zoom and created natural-looking bokehs.

What DxO did not like was the “occasionally” slow autofocus and some issues with low-light performance – ghosting on moving objects and red-eye in shots with flash.

However, the iPhone X does not have the best video camera – it only scored 89 points, bringing the overall score down to 97. That puts it in second place, tied with the Mate 10 Pro. The image stabilization and some issues with low-light performance were pointed out as cons.

We pulled DxO scores into a table for quick reference:

DxO scores Photo score Video score TOTAL score
Google Pixel 2 99 96 98
Apple iPhone X 101 89 97
Huawei Mate 10 Pro 100 91 97
Apple iPhone 8 Plus 96 89 94
Samsung Galaxy Note8 100 84 94
Apple iPhone 8 93 90 92
HTC U11 90 89 90
Sony Xperia XZ Premium 82 84 83

Very true. It amazes me that even the author is not encouraging the readers to believe what Dox had to say about their review of Apple's screen. It makes you wonder why publish the article in the first place if you're going to suggest to readers not ...

Apple haters have been attacking anything that is remotley a positive review about an Apple product. Dxomark is as legit as it gets. Anyone who disagrees is a hater.
