Iphone isn't really greatest at photography. Samsung S10+ beats it. Huawei P30 Pro beats it. When you zoom in on low light photo, this becomes obvious.
It is also no longer unmatched at video either, because Mi CC9 Pro is just as good. It scores the same as Iphone, while costing less. I have seen the video samples of CC9 Pro. They are amazing.
Dx0Mark says CC9 Pro is the new best camera phone. GSM arena samples also say it. There are YouTube reviews who also claim that after testing it.
But I saw the samples myself. Zoomed in on them. They are great. Photography power of CC9 Pro is just as great as Huawei Mate 30 Pro. Video recording is better than Mate 30 Pro. Well saturated(not too much) nice colors, really beautiful.
According to the DxOMark:
If you want a great camera for photos, Huawei Mate 30 Pro and CC9 Pro are the best choice.
If you want great videos, CC9 Pro or Iphone 11.
However, you have to be careful with Iphone 11. I think the only reason it scored so much in video testing was due to increased saturation in videos.
I prefer to edit my videos and set the suitable saturation myself. I don't like phone doing it for me.
Also, Apple's Iphone scored lower than Mi CC9 Pro when considering noise in videos.
For those who don't want to edit colors in their videos, Iphone is a better choice as videos that come from it are usually suitable for use right away, without any color editing, and will look more lively than unedited Mi CC9 Pro videos.
Don't blame dxomark when your favorite phone camera is not good enough,
Phones with much bigger sensors have obligation to outperform the other with small sensors.
Comparison should not even be done. Same way people cant compare micro 4/3 against apsc.
Huawei Mate 30 Pro is the K I N G ...
and people were believing Apple's claims about being best mobile phone camera...
HA HA HA ...
Now i can why Huawei was banned and suddenly Samsung and Apple were happy....
i never owned an iphone, yet i find its picture considerably better this year around.
ive zero trust in dxomark specially for mobile. in fact, i judge gsmarena pretty poorly for repeatedly using them as a source.
I never bothered about DxOMark, never trust them again. But I did compared the 11 Pro's camera against last year's XS, and I still believe that the photo quality of XS is still much better than the 11 Pro. The oversharpening in 11 Pro is just... way too much and rather noticeable.
As expected Huawei Mate 30 definitely in a league of its own! And Xiaomi CC9 got the edge through shere details of that huge 108MP! Next year Samsung will surely step that game even further with their optimization of that huge sensor I think and gonna break that 121 score till Huawei brings the 2nd iteration of thir custom Sony IMX sensor with their P40 series which definetly will be something!
Pixel 4 and most of the devices : 1080p as default, 1080p tested
Iphone = 1080p default, 4K tested
Software, likely win for Apple. Looks, in my opinion, Apple win. Battery, Xiaomi and considerably. Build, Apple. Performance, Apple. Resale value, Apple. Availability, Apple. Camera Apple based on likely filesize. That said, great to see a midranger get in the mix. Pixel has big problems now though.
Being a $1200 phone minding your business...
Imagine losing from a $350 phone in camera quality, the one -last- bastion of flagship phones. If they lose in that even, remind me again why should anyone give more than $400 to a phone anymore?
Huh, even with that ugly camera tumor, eh?
