DxOMark has a new king — the Samsung Galaxy Note 10+ 5G
Although the latest flagships released by Samsung can be considered nothing more but a poor joke from a certain point of view, most mobile photography fans will love the Galaxy Note 10+ 5G. After all, despite the size of its image sensors, this phablet is now the all-around leader of DxOMark's mobile photography section.
The scores achieved by the Samsung Galaxy Note 10+ 5G in DxOMark's tests are simply outstanding: 118 for mobile photography, 99 for the selfie camera (103 for photos and 93 for videos), and 101 for video recording. The overall score is 113, just one point more than the Huawei P30 Pro and the Samsung Galaxy S10 5G. However, the selfie camera of the Huawei flagship only managed to grab 89 points, while the Galaxy S10 5G was much closer to the Note 10+ in the selfie camera department, scoring 97 points.
In addition to the above, we should also mention that the Huawei P30 Pro gets to keep its crown as the best mobile photo performer when shooting still images with the main camera with a score of 119.
Returning to the Galaxy Note 10+ 5G, DxOMark praised its precise focus, well-controlled noise, vivid colors in most conditions, good detail in zoom shots, and more. However, the tests have also revealed occasional oversaturation, ringing/aliasing/loss of localized detail, and some depth estimation failures in bokeh mode.
These being said, what would you choose for your mobile photography needs (on a generous budget) — the Huawei P30 Pro, the Samsung Galaxy Note 10+ 5G, or one of the others? Feel free to share your choice with us and please try to avoid those "DxOMark is being paid by <insert big phone company name here> to fake the test results" comments unless you have solid proof that you are telling the truth.
