DxOMark ranks Moto X Style as the third best camera phone

Stefan, 29 July, 2015

Hot on the heels of the Moto X Style announcement, DxOMark Mobile published an extensive review of the device’s 21MP camera. With a score of 83, Motorola’s brand new flagship is the third best camera phone according to DxOMark Mobile.

Moto X Style lags only behind Samsung Galaxy S6 edge and Samsung Galaxy Note 4 in the prestigious mobile photography rankings. The newcomers scored the same 83 points in both the still photo and the video section of DxOMark’s test.

In the still photography section, DxOMark gave Moto X Style props for well exposed photos, accurate autofocus and white balance, as well as good deals and low noise in outdoor shots. The images’ colors were also praised.

Slightly unstable autofocus and overexposed images with flash and saturation in photos of blue sky drag the device’s score down. The same goes for occasionally clipped bright areas in an image.

The video capturing capabilities of the smartphone received high marks for detail preservation in all light conditions and fast adjustments of exposure and white balance. The video stabilization of the handset is also hailed as one of the best to date.

Downsides in the videography section came from slow autofocus in low light conditions, noticeable color shading in tungsten lighting, and stabilization artifacts. The latter appeared in an indoor walking test.

HTC 1M9 is at 24th place. Check it here: http://www.dxomark.com/Mobiles/HTC-One-M9-Review-M8-s-successor-on-DxOMark And about LG's G4, it is not in the list, which only means that it is not good at-all! Mind you, iPhone 6+ only manage to reach at #5.
