Pixel 5 gets mediocre 120 points in DxOMark test

30 October 2020
It's using very old hardware and Google's decision not to include a third camera limits it even further.

Still couldn't beat the Pixel 5.

Score comes out few minutes after phone is announced = high score
Score comes out months after phone is for sale = low score


The points don't mean anything.

I am only looking at the actual samples.

And they look pretty much the same as pixel 2/3 that were launched years ago.

Next year is new sensor or bust for pixel I think.

When a brand loses out on Dxomark score, the fans start saying they are not reliable. 3yrs hardware should have scored even much less lol

120 for me is a medium score. Not impressive. Why? Because it's 120 points now that it came out but in some months, in February/March we're gonna have a bunch of new flagships that will probably pass Pixel 5. So it'll be down more in their table.

So they come out now, should be on top score. So when other flagships come out, they don't go down as much in their table.

If DXOMark is reliable? opinions vary. Who should we trust, youtubers? Most youtubers receive money below the table so they say good things about a phone etc stop living in wonderland...

notafanboy, 31 Oct 2020How so? Are you mad because your precious Pixel is not #1?Nah only 1 word no Zoom lens that itself will make for free 20 points. This has been true since the Pixel 1,2 & 3 no different here. By the way how is 120 mediocre by any means?

The downfall of the Pixel series, it began with the Pixel 4.
Also OnePlus is going on the same route!

  • Costis

Dxo mark is a joke for sure

TEtech, 30 Oct 2020Soo you trust those youtubers who say it has a great camera... moreThey decided against testing Night Sight and elected to use auto-flash instead. What a joke

While Google's post processing is impressive, imagine how good it would be if it was using Mate Pro 40 optics instead of 3 year old outdated sensors.

Impossible, the pixel 5 has the same hardware as the the 2018 pixel and the software is also the same so how could the pixel 5 with a tiny sensor acheive that without a very large sensor or a 10x periscope or a very wide and great ultrawide sensor, it doesn't even have a 2x telephoto
And the 765 is not far at all from the sd 845 on the 2018 pixel
I DON'T SEE HOW IT HAS ABOUT 20 MORE POINT DESPITE HAVING ABOUT THE SAME SOC AND THE SAME HARDWARE
They said that even 2x zoom is not very good
And it's gonna be noisy
IMPOSSIBLE
