It wasn't this time iPhone X: Pixel 2 camera reigns on top of DxOMark

A cold shower on iPhone X fans: Apple's new device couldn't beat the Google Pixel 2 camera in DxOMark's tests.

While Ma's handset reached a total of 97 points, the Pixel 2 remained at the top of the ranking with a score of 98 – and with one more detail: the device has only one camera at the rear.

In summary, Pixel 2 was superior in exposure, contrast and color. While the iPhone X has managed to excel in categories of noise, zoom and bokeh.

DxOMark is known for taking some of the industry's most technically complete camera and lens measurement and rating tests.

The interesting and powerful result for Google: The Pixel line is only two years old, while the iPhone already celebrates 10 years of development.
