NOTHING on the DxOmark web site is of any use to anyone that is interested in making great photographs (rather than seeing who has bragging rights due to their equipment).
Most news regarding this device on this site are extremely biased against it. 120 medicre? What? 765 underperformer... What?
Gsmarena: pkease wake up.
120 dxomark score is very good for a phone without a telepoto camera which costs $700.
Dxomark just published that the $1300 Samsung note 20 ultra got also a 120 score eventhough it has many cameras.
We want to see your article on this "mediocre" score of this expensive phone as well.!
Gsmarena: stop discounting pixels phone!
Samath N8 808 owner, 31 Oct 2020Agreed, but going by that equation, you can't measure anything because someone will be sa... moreI didn't say the distinction between a DxOMark rating of 120 and the top phones is meaningless. And I explicitly acknowledged in the first sentence of my comment that the Pixel 5 clearly is not trying to be the best camera on the market. What I said was that calling a 120 rating "mediocre," as GSMArena did in their title for the post, is dumb. 120 is not mediocre. It is exceedingly good, even if it doesn't rank up with the best of the best.
So it's splitting hairs, except for the most camera-centric focused consumers.
OwnFix3, 02 Nov 2020More like the software optimization hasn't improved since Pixel 3 launch.More like, there's only so much you can do with software optimization. At some point you need to upgrade the hardware (which hasn't changed since the Pixel 3).

DxOMark it´s chinese, don´t? And Google Pixel it´s of USA, don´t? And DxOmark the first valued phones are chinese, don´t? Just asking.
This clowns rated lumia 1020 with 85 or sonething. I am still waiting to see a picture taken with todays phones that match the almost full blown camera quality pictures that 1020 took. Give us a brake and stop promoting a bunch of sellouts.

I always prefer some noise rather than a destroyed photo with no detail that looks like an oil painting. And of course true to life colors. I've seen camera samples from the phone and it has an amazing camera!
Who actually pays attention to this, lol. It has already been proven that the Pixel takes the best, overall pictures. I don't need an outside source to throw numbers at me 😂
Anonymous, 01 Nov 2020maybe xiaomi sent with best config to dxo labs who knows!Yeah, it's possible... Perhaps it's that auto in S7 is far superior to Xiaomi's...
So, just by having a garbage telephoto camera the score would be better? 🤷♂️
Shame for Pixel lineups to get ranked at 15th! If google can't deliver a masterpiece in camera, it would be better if they rebrand the name of the phone.
Since they scored Xiaomi mi note 3 1 point ahead of s7 edge I don't trust/care anymore dxomark. I have that xiaomi, my wife s7 and sorry, but there is a world between them. They play in different leagues.
Really pleased with my Pixel 5. It's beats all the other phones I tried out for the types of pictures I take on a mobile phone. It's a worthwhile upgrade from my pixel 3 and well worth the $250 upgrade price (selling pixel 3 and free bose Qc35 II)
That is because they also consider preview (on viewfinder) but like any other pixel the image preview is not all that great when u compare it to post processed image.and not forget pixel 5 also could have scored less in zoom category. I think dxo should chage their way of scoring(it should be more specific)
