Imaging lab DxOMark has released poems on two of the latest top-end Android phones in the ecosystem: a score exactly where it should, the other seems to be overweight.
Google Pixel 3 seems to have done quite well for itself with its cameras that score 101 on the empirical DxOMark Mobile scale – in line with the iPhone XR, which costs $ 50 less.
For context, there are 2 points under Xiaomi Mi Mix 3, Galaxy Note 9 and HTC U12 +, 4 points under iPhone XS Max and 8 points from Huawei P20 Pro. That said, all of the above phones have at least two cameras on them, while Pixel 3 and even Pixel 3 XL only have one. DxO calls it the best single-camera Android phone on the market.
Having said that, the device usually does a good job and has great exposure, contrast and dynamic range capabilities, and is fast on auto focus. Where it can be better is in more difficult conditions with details ̵
Towards the middle of the package with a score of 98, OnePlus 6T – a respectable result for a $ 549 phone. It has only been the last year that the company has really intensified its shooting game, but even for six months, 6T controls a point advantage over the 6 for stills and a four-point win for half-decent video.
