US$1400 should get you the absolute best smartphone around, one would think. Apparently not, as the Samsung Galaxy S20 Ultra has made the trip over to DxOMark and mostly disappointed, with an overall score that places it outside the top five on the website's charts.
Ricci Rox,

The Samsung Galaxy S20 Ultra was released back in February and has now only just been reviewed by popular photography evaluation website, DxOMark. The results? Less than stellar, especially considering the phone's massive US$1400 price tag.

The Samsung Galaxy S20 Ultra earned an overall score of 122. That score only sees the S20 Ultra take up the joint-sixth position with the Honor V30 Pro. In the still photography category, the S20 Ultra recorded a score of 132, which is right on par with phones like the Huawei Mate 30 Pro 5G and Mi 10 Pro, but not quite as good as the new Huawei P40 Pro.

The video category is more of the same, as the S20 Ultra manages a score of 102. It's right around the top in that category—the P40 Pro leads the pack with a score of 105—but one would expect the S20 Ultra to perform better, seeing as the eight-month-old Note 10+ 5G earned a video score of 101.

As always, DxOMark's scores are not to be taken as gospel. The S20 Ultra has received plenty of criticism for its cameras, though, particularly with its well-known focusing issues—a problem DxOMark does highlight in the review.
