Samsung's latest flagship, Galaxy S10 +, has managed to beat the iPhone XS and iPhone XS Max in DxOMark's camera testing. It stands for both front and rear camera performance. At the rear of the camera's performance, the Galaxy S10 + sits right at the top with the Mate 20 Pro and P20 Pro. And for the front camera, it sets a new reference pattern that turns on like Pixel 3 and Galaxy Note 9.
The DxOMark team was particularly impressed by the exact white balance, color rendering and wide dynamic range offered by Galaxy S10s primary 12MP shooter. It also found the bokeh effect to be realistic, with a good amount of detail retained in zoom images. On typical Samsung fashion, while the noise level in low light images remains low, there was a small loss of detail.
The team just tested the rear 12MP dual aperture shooter of the Galaxy S10, and its points are based on it. It did not take into account the performance of the ultra-thin shooter for testing.
In the video department, the Galaxy S10's fast autofocus and stabilization highlights along with good white balance and target exposure. However, the videos come out a little under-saturated in low light and there are also some exposure problems.
Along with the rear camera, the DxOMark team also tested the front 10MP selfie shooter on the Galaxy S10. With 96 points, the Galaxy S10 + is now ranked as the best selfie shooter of DxOMark in front of the Galaxy Note 9 and Google Pixel 3. The iPhone XS Max managed 82 points in the same series of tests.
Galaxy S10 scored 101 in the image standards and 88 in the video department. The publication says there is a tremendous improvement in images taken from the Galaxy S10s 10MP shooter in almost all departments compared to Samsung's own Galaxy Note 9, with many details being retained. The secondary 8MP depth camera on the S10 + also helps improve the overall portrait.
It looks like Samsung has made some massive improvements with the selfie sensor on the Galaxy S10 series. Regarding the impressive performance of the rear camera, given that Samsung didn't talk much about it, it's probably come from imaging improvements. The references do not take into account the versatility offered by the triple camera setup at the back, which can be extremely practical in some situations.
