For me Selfi Camera must take excellent Stage lighting selfi image(face from chest) and rarely with two or three people together (still prefer Primary Rear Cameras though) thats it. I dont expect front facing cameras to perform like primary ones. During video calls it should work properly. I know some psychic people use front facing cameras for Tik Tok videos etc... I am certainly not one of them but I make some funny emoji videos only for very limited audiance for that any camera will do. The front facing camera scores try to separate categories like Portraits, Video Calls, Group Pictures, Dynamic Range and somelow light situations. It cant average out and confuse the buyers with one number. You need many cameras in the back to get scores above 120 plus, just imagine with one or two tiny cameras it is nearly impossible to cover all situations. Otherwise, like Samsung A80 have one camera that can be reversed at will.
Anonymous, 04 Jul 2020Why? Actually, GSMArena should stop with these plug ins for DxOMark and stick to their own ... moreTrue, i feel GSMArena did way better job with analyzing the photo of each smartphone they review, and more accurate representation of what the actual photo seen through average people too, except for video, they don't go throughout with the stabilization of each device
Anonymous, 04 Jul 2020thats good enough its a selfie camera. i dont think most people care.,But they should care, because if you want to expand market even more (ie. For girls) , bcz they're a sucker for good selfie camera, and the lack of stabilization is a deal breaker for most girl considering its basically a flagship with flagship price in some market, and even a lot of midrange already have a good enough stabilization for the selfie can

You know if it bothers you that much you can always not read it.
Anonymous, 04 Jul 2020Huh? Did you see the score?So you rely on the scores completely and not look into the reviews? 🤔 I've seen both reviews from GsmA and AA.
thats good enough its a selfie camera. i dont think most people care.,
Man please don't trust such reviews or benchmarks. Just buy any phone you like and you want. You aren't buying a phone to show off or to compare with other phones. As long as everything works great and there aren't any major issues you will be fine.
Both GsmArena themselves and Android Authority had negative review of the selfie camera (maybe also XDA), don't know why DxOMark proved otherwise.

I mean it's an Okaaay score, scored higher than the Oppo find x2 pro. But it just goes to show people that MP doesn't mean anything these days, why implement a high MP sensor if you can't nail your camera software. Google has proven that hence why everyone wants a GCAM mod for their phone and why the Pixel 4 scored a 92 on the selfie, the exact same as the 11 pro max
That is a disappointing score. It's still a great phone though, if you don't use the selfie much.
Sepfian, 04 Jul 2020Consumer tend to forget, that if we want good camera or vidcam, we must rely on our camera, no... moreYes, who wants to carry such heavy, bulky, hard, and tools that cannot instantly share photos or videos taken right after it?
For me the P40 Pro and S20 Ultra is the one i need the most. Both for versetality and quality. Iphone only on videos.

All China smartphone brands (Except Oneplus and P40 Series) have very bad selfie camera because :
1. Beautification too aggressive
2. Noise reduction
3. Lacks Autofocus
4. Pushing Megapixels count on a small selfie camera sensor means bad low light quality
5. Selfie camera not as wide, and it is very tight when on video because of the EIS
