If you recall, we revealed that the Galaxy S5 had the Best Smartphone Camera back in June when DxOMark conducted their tests. It has now been dethroned by the iPhone 6, and now it scores the most amount and it is the Best Smartphone Camera according to them at the moment.
The iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus earned 82 points each in the highly contested DxOMark photography test; the highest mobile score to date. They surpassed the likes of Samsung Galaxy S5, Sony Xperia Z2, and Sony Xperia Z3, which shared the top spot before with a score of 79. The Nokia Lumia 1020 and the other Pureview Camera devices also stack behind the list.
Apple iPhone 6 scored 83 for still photography, while its bigger brother topped it with 84. The better performance of the iPhone 6 Plus should hardly catch anyone by surprise as its camera features optical image stabilization.
The Still images in both smartphones impressed with good overall exposure, impressive autofocus and color rendering, good detail preservation, and stellar flash performance. The iPhone 6 has showcased luminance noise in low light, as well as some ghosting and fringing.
Curiously, iPhone 6 topped its bigger brother in the video capture department and posted a score of 80. The iPhone 6 Plus managed a rating of 79 due to some stabilization artifacts visible during video capture according to DxOMark.
Both smartphones demonstrated very fast and accurate auto focus. It is no surprise, since it has Phase Detection Auto Focusing, just like the Galaxy S5 and the Colors remained attractive in all conditions, while noise remained fine-grained. Head on over to DxOMark’s Labs to see more information.
Something tells me that the Galaxy Note 4 might top this chart when it’s out. What do you think?
