Samsung Galaxy S10+ tops DxOMark's selfie charts, surpassing the Pixel 3 and Note 9
DxOMark has been singing the praises of the dual front cameras found in Samsung’s new Galaxy S10+ flagship smartphone. The dual selfie system scored 101 points for photo and 88 points for video, giving a final DxOMark Selfie test score of 96. This puts the S10+ at the top of the rankings for selfie cameras, with the Google Pixel 3 and Samsung Galaxy Note 9 trailing closely behind with 92 points each.
For photos, DxOMark listed pros such as well-controlled noise, good exposure, and good details at varied shooting distances. There were cons for the S10+ though, like issues with dull colors in low light and some highlight clipping. But overall, the 10 MP + 8 MP sensors performed admirably, with the testers being especially pleased with the flash modes.
It’s not surprising that the Samsung Galaxy S10+ topped DxOMark’s Selfie chart with its dual front camera setup that allows for depth sensing and offers the ability to create bokeh-effect selfies. The smartphone also scored well for video performance, thanks to effective image stabilization and general accuracy, although some choppiness was reported. The S10+ also scored the most video selfie points, so in selfie terms the Galaxy flagship is DxOMark's current undisputed champion.
(Note: DxOMark has only published a short review for the S10+ so far and will update it to a full-format review soon.)
