iPhone 14 Pro's failure to hit the #1 spot in the DxOMark has nothing to do with its recent stabilization bugs
DxOMark's camera test results for the iPhone 14 Pro are out, thus giving a potential insight as to how its new 48MP main shooter does against its forebear in the 13 Pro series. The new flagship (which also represents its Pro Max sibling as they have the same specs in this regard) came in for largely positive feedback for many of its updated features, its color (skin tone reproduction included); zoom capabilities; detail; auto-focus and bokeh effects included.
The 14 Pro was also awarded a new top score in terms of stabilization, thereby hinting that DxOMark might not have been on TikTok with the phone - or has completed the testing with the latest software: iOS 16.0.2 is rated to fix the new high-end unit's issues on third-party apps.
On the other hand, DxOMark did find some fault with the 14 Pro's observed inability to keep its white balance constant across all lighting conditions; the flagship also apparently had the tendency to exhibit ringing around subjects in certain scenarios, and had some noise in indoor shots.
Accordingly, the iPhone 14 Pro ended up with a total score of 146 in this camera test, second only to the Honor Magic4 Ultimate on 147. Then again, the new Apple smartphone is now the leader in DxOMark's selfie camera rankings at 145; in addition, it has done better than its 13 Pro predecessor, which came in at #4 on its release in 2021. Can the 14 Pro series do just as well in our hands? Stay tuned to find out!
