Samsung says the Galaxy S20 Ultra is the best in photography but DxOMark does not rank it in the top 5

As usual, top smartphones are placed in the eye of the DxOMark camera benchmark tool. This week was the turn of the Samsung Galaxy S20 Ultra, the flagship of the new generation Galaxy. With regard to photo capture, the specialist says that the smartphone is equivalent to good equipment with the capacity to record excellent images, but some details leave it behind the high standards of the best at the top of the table.

In the field of photography, autofocus was highlighted, as well as the exposure of the image. The 12 MP wide-angle camera, with a 13 mm f / 2.2 aperture, has a lower resolution than the respective 16 MP lens of the S10 Plus version. Benchmark experts claim that the lowest resolution ensures larger pixels and higher image quality.

The addition of the depth sensor to the set of four cameras helps to highlight the bokeh effect in Portrait mode. However, at the general level, this component received 132 points. A lower score than the Honor 30 Pro +, tested last week, which scored 136 points in this category.

With regard to video, the main camera of the smartphone can record 8K images, at 24 FPS, but if you choose 4K resolution you can get better performances at 30 and 60 FPS. Highlight for the HDR + video processing system that offers better colors, contrasts and dynamic range.

To this is added the EIS system of electronic stabilization through gyroscope, as well as optical stabilization, for less blurred images. On the video, the smartphone received 102 points, highlighting its image stabilization and autofocus.

Overall, DxOMark gave 122 points of equipment average, but this result does not allow it to get more than a sixth place in the benchmark table. The Huawei P40 remains the undisputed leader of the platform, followed by the Honor V30 Pro.
