Like any ranking to measure the quality of something, the DxOMark polemic. Some defend the way everything is evaluated; others, of course, think that the evaluation has subjective points and that the final grade (that is, the ranking itself) often does not reflect reality. The fact that Apple itself has already used the DxOMark ranking to enhance the camera of its devices.
Earlier this year, Huawei launched its flagship It has three cameras that beat the DxOMark record. The P20 Pro remains there, firm and strong at the top of the table, but there is a new smartphone occupying second place on the list: yes, the iPhone XS Max (which, consequently, puts the iPhone XS on the same level, since the devices are identical in that sense).
Here is the ranking with the top 15:
DxOMark engineers capture and evaluate more than 1,500 images and more than 2 hours of video in controlled laboratory environments, and in indoor and outdoor scenes, using the camera's default settings. And part of that result you can see below.

Here is the detailed review of the iPhone XS Max:
Comparing with the Huawei P20 Pro, leader of the ranking, we see that the individual notes are quite balanced, with the exception of artifacts, zoom and effect bokeh (with Apple s getting the better of the first). This by analyzing the photo notes; for videos, the P20 Pro also clashes in autofocus and noise, achieving much higher notes.
As positive points of the camera of the iPhone XS, they stated that the camera of the new smartphones flagship Apple has excellent target exposure and dynamic range in bright conditions and bright interiors, good detail in all conditions, vivid and pleasant colors in most situations, fast and accurate autofocus, element isolation and pleasant effect in mode bokeh, in addition to a wide dynamic range and very good image stabilization.
By cons, we have flash images (which are often under-exposed), luminance noise (which is noticeable in low light, and shadow areas of high contrast scenes), coarse luminous noise and a lack of detail in photos. zoom, the white balance is unstable when shooting under indoor lighting and the noise of luminance in low light.
