OnePlus 6 scores a respectable 96 score from DxOMark, beats iPhone 8 Plus

17 July 2018
The final score topped the Galaxy Note8 as well. With a 100 on still photos, it also edges out the Pixel 2 (but loses in the video test).

The biggest mistake they make is to take the overall score as a measure of image quality, when DxO take into account a number of different aspects to arrive at that overall score.
So for example, the photo score can be affected by color, flash, zoom, and bokeh sub categories, while you want to look at only exposure and contrast, texture, noise, and artifacts in order to judge how strong its performances in dynamic range, resolved details, sharpness, noise.

Granted, I don't know how exactly DxO can come up with those numbers, but for me the sub scores are the more relevant numbers and, when comparing among various devices reviewed, can give a pretty good picture of each cam's performance. It shows. Just watch a few camera shootouts on YouTube to gauge each cam's dynamic range, low-light prowess, sharpness, details, and you will find that DxO's findings are not far off of the reality. Ignore the autofocus (speed), bokeh and zoom sub scores.

The OnePlus company based on my 3 years of experience has been working hard on creating what is the best OnePlus device they can offer. If it were a multi-million dollar company like the other top competitors then it could provide what the masses consider a better camera. But other than that the company has provided other great features.

On the point of the camera on the OP 1,3,5 and 6 are good camera phones for the price they were released for. At least your not paying for the full price of research and development as with other phone companies or some brand name that just make average phones.
OnePlus is good at what they do and the best part is they don't make phones for the masses, the make phones for the community. If the masses like it, then it's a "plus" for them. They learnt the hard way not to make phones to please people (OP 2).

Though I never owned an OP2 the camera wasn't bad either.

They just want easy one-liner quips and follow popular narratives.

I've a Pixel XL & used OP 6 for 2 weeks. Though I didnt make any actual comparison between the two, my feeling was OP 6 was slightly may be a milli seconds slower than Pixel 1 in capturing. Though it may be a minor thing, 1 milli seconds is aeons in photography isnt? Unfortunately you have failed to highlight one of the most critical component of any camera, the capture time.

Rather than criticising dxomark with vague statements and subjective opinions, tell me why shouldn't we trust dxo based on scientific statements ( statements that makes sense). I know people who blindly believe the so called tech Youtubers who doesn't know anything about camera and being biased and supporting big brands like Samsung, apple and Google blindly. I too don't know about many things about camera, so please enlighten me why we shouldn't trust dxo and trust someone like mkbhd?

So a DxO rating giving higher points to OP6 is simple, plain BS

Excellent single camera + No second camera + Best software = Excellent Performance

S9+:
Great single camera + Good second camera + Great software = Great Performance

...the advantage that that Google has is they can easily use a newer/better single-camera and become the leader of the "Camera Wars" again. However their competitors have a much harder time because they can throw better sensors which will not bridge the gap if their software is still unoptimised.

most important for me is texture which is soooooo weak in a weird way but overall great camera

Geric.770, 18 Jul 2018Updates? Nah. That'll make your phone destroy if you aren'... moreThe 5z is priced lower than the OP6- Sweet. But the camera is just average and inferior to the OP6's cam both in pics, video recording and stabilization.

People who think Galaxy S9 plus is a beast in camera department should re-open eyes. It indeed has a good camera but not as good as the pixel 2, P20 Pro or even the IPX in few areas. Here is the fact: The colours are not accurate, objects are oversharpened. Take the same photos using those phones in different scenarios and compare those pics taken from a DSLR. The S9+'s pics come out as most pleasing to the eyes with unnatural colours and oversharpening. Does it mean it has a very good camera?? A big NO. I did that experiement(using Pixel 2, P20 Pro & Nikon D72), and was not happy with the outcome of the S9 Plus. I DONT CARE about whoever wants to troll this msg.

Nah. That'll make your phone destroy if you aren't careful.

The 5z is the perfect phone for this head to head combat against each other with almost the same price tag.

I Mean Seriously, You think this camera is better than Pixel (Even Pixel 1, forget about pixel 2). Guys, DXO, you need to seriously stop taking money and rather print honest reviews.
For all the others, if you really think OP 6 is that good, then let's hear it... GSM Arena, have a blind camera test pitting OP6 against likes of iPhone 8, Pixel 2 & S9.
We'll know who's where then.

DXOMark scores are not genuine. Only noobs believe them.
