It is no doubt that smartphone cameras have become really good in the past decade and now rival dedicated cameras. They have moved on from being an afterthought to having bigger sensors, better lenses, great stabilization and the horsepower needed to have computation photography.
DxOMark is a company known for camera reviews and recently, they started reviewing cameras on phones. They usually assign a score on cameras where higher is better and this has been used by companies to convince future consumers that the cameras on their phones are great.
The Huawei P30 Pro has an undeniably great camera and recently, DxOMark did their tests and ranked it at the top of the smartphone camera table. Well, it now shares that summit with a stealthy entrant from the Galaxy S10 family.
The Galaxy S10 5G was announced the same time as the S10, S10+ and the S10e where the only differences were its bigger screen, bigger battery and the extra Time of Flight depth sensing camera that it sports. Well it now shares the smartphone camera crown with the Huawei P30 Pro.
DxO found out that it scored very well in the still photo subsection (117 points), only 2 points behind the P30 Pro, but it makes up on that by scoring an insane 100 points on the video side, which is 3 more than the P30 Pro and the highest ever recorded by the company.
Generally they found the S10 5G to have pleasant colours, accurate exposure, good dynamic range, fast autofocus and pleasant bokeh for photos and excellent detail, accurate exposure, fast autofocus and efficient stabilization in hand held videos.
We are living in a time when top smartphones have really great cameras and are very close to each other than ever before so you can’t go wrong with the top smartphones really.
