iPhone XS is the king of cameras against Galaxy Note 9, Huawei P20 Pro and Xiaomi Mi 8, Check it!
We have the long awaited result of the comparison with smartphones that are at the top of the DxOMark ranking. There are those who claim that the P20 Pro is no match for the others, but it’s worth remembering that just like the Huawei model, the Mi8 also arrived in early 2018, while Galaxy Note 9 and iPhone XS were officially released in the second half. Anyway, with four points in front of second place (XS Max) what is the problem of facing “weaker” rivals, is not it?
While we have not yet gotten our hands on a Mate 20 Pro, which Huawei has avoided showing figures or comparisons on the grounds that it would humiliate rivals too much, let’s check whether the P-series car is still secured with its triple rear camera solution, one more than the opponents. But as we mentioned in the blind voting list, the amount of lenses and megapixels do not guarantee quality and the Pixel family with the Google camera application are to prove (and we’ll see them soon here too).
The photos were captured with smartphones in automatic mode and maximum resolution allowed in the 4: 3 ratio, which is usually where we reach the full potential of the sensor. With this, the choice to use HDR, IA or any other feature is entirely by the camera software of each model, as is the case with most users.
The results listed below are the result of the following methodology with creation of the individual and final ranking. Each smartphone received a score in each individual comparative, where the sum of all points revealed the winner. The following weights were used:
First place: 4 points
Second place: 3 points
Third place: 2 points
Fourth place: 1 point
Explained the scoring method, we went to the results!
Overall in daytime environment and with good lighting the Galaxy Note 9 led to better, followed by the iPhone XS. It is worth mentioning the victory of Samsung in portrait mode and making use of the HDR with the rear camera, Apple already stood in front of the rival in macro and also in selfie. In portrait mode with the front camera made it easy for the iPhone XS, since it does not make use of the forced effect of beautification of the rivals.
Mi 8 and P20 Pro hit in one or another scenario, with the main flaws being the lack of sharpness of the Xiaomi device or the aberrations in the total absence of HDR treatment of Huawei when facing the sun, which only left the king of the DxOMark in last position of this comparative because of the boom zoom and of the balanced selfie without bursting background exposure.
