I'd choose a notched display any day over this flipchart-style camera setup.

Yes. Photos from Asus looks way better than Pixel 3 or Galaxy S10 - there sharp, looks natural and has wide field of view. Great job Asus.

Try actually reading the full review and see the picture comparison. This Zenfooen was compared to Pixel 3, S10+ and XS Max in the shown shots and if you look at the background/sky you can clearly see the same exact clouds, so taken at the same place at the same time under the same conditions.

You can check the indoor group shots as well, all the same people in the same location wearing the same clothes and the same hairdue with the same hairs sticking up between the middle persons glasses.

Anonymous, 27 May 2019Another proof that dxomark is a paid company. Why they are ... moreThe selfie camera and main camera is one is the same. It flips up from the back side to the front. They were likely testing several selfie cams at the same time and finished that bit before testing it as a rear camera. Testing conditions for "main/rear" camera require more time.

Also Asus doesn't need to pay it. Only Google and Samsung with their 3 year old IMX 363 and Apple can do that. Give Sony, HTC, Asus and others a pass. Xiaomi on the other hand, never forget that they pay DxOMark for one of their midrange phones just because it didn't sell well due to a lack of headphone jack.

I really love the community here. They're compensating their limp and small peen with OLED, OIS and other strawman hate comments to one of the two Flagship Killers of 2019 along side Redmi K20 Pro.

Does K20 Pro have a triple slot for 2 SIMS and 1 microSD, notification light, DTS:X for headphones and FM Radio? I don't want to research on that phone. I just wanna hate you back lol.

LOL! Shocking! DXO is trying to be funny

Google only needed one camera to beat all these Asian brands using multiple ones. Night Sight is for real and Super Res Zoom isn't bad.

Google's computational photography > all other algorithms

I'm like... Duh? Can't you just say that it's the same camera tho?

IpsDisplay, 27 May 2019That's why its good peace of mind to use LCD without any worryLCD got i'ts issues too, they got bleeding on the edges and looks less colorful on TFT screens (IPS looks close to OLED, but still blacks are gray). So no, i would totally go for an OLED.

Boreas, 27 May 2019Good feature set in general !! Why is OIS missing - is it ... moreMost phones with imx586 do not have OIS.
This is a cost cutting measure.
They rely on the fact that the sensor is big enough to capture more light in short amount of time with relatively low noise.
Sometimes this works ok and sometimes it doesn't.
Phones like OnePlus 7 Pro have imx586 and OIS as well and you can expect them to deliver marginally better results in low light.

For me, I'd just wait until GSMA outs their review, at least they're not biased as DxO.
Last time I checked DxO was a year ago or more. When they like the phone, they try to shoot in a favoring condition (i.e. good, even lighting). When they don't, suddenly everything is a high contrast scene or a room with dimmed lights, and lo and behold: bad score.

Just look at their list, some phones with lower scores were actually good ones favored by the masses.

Sometimes it's not being able to deliver an awesome photo in a certain condition, but pushing out a decent photo in most situations, something most phones of 2017 and back weren't able to do. Yet, their list fails to point that out.

DXO mark didn't tested the 4k 60 fps video.... 🤨

Also they didn't any HDR+ or Enhanced modes where the selfies would be even better...

Does the night mode work for selfies as well???
