Huawei Mate 10 Pro Gets a Perfect 100 Score for Photography

The smartphone camera industry might truly be at its zenith right now, as evident from the rise of record-breaking rating scores on DxOMark.

The latest such blip in the radar here was the new Huawei Mate 10 Pro, a new flagship which has managed a score of 97 points on DxOMark’s camera test. The score is just a solitary point behind the new Google Pixel 2, which currently sits on top with a 98.

The phone comes with a dual-lens setup of 20 MP + 12 MP, f/1.6 sensors on the back, with Leica optics and OIS. It has a hybrid laser+phase-detection autofocus, while the video capabilities include 4K mode recording at upto 30 fps. The front camera is a single 8 MP sensor. The phone managed to outscore both the iPhone 8 Plus and the Galaxy Note 8, both of whom managed scores of 94.

Best Smartphone Camera in The World for Photography

In its benchmark test, DxO Mark praised the photography skills of the camera in particular, rewarding it with a perfect 100 score on the test (the highest it has ever awarded to a smartphone).

This means that according to DxOMark, Huawei Mate 10 Pro is hands down the best smartphone camera in the world, to date.

On the video front, the camera failed to achieve a similar lofty score that it did on the photography front, with a score of 91.

The stills were applauded for their detail as well as the exposure levels and HDR. The low noise levels, the 2x lossless zoom, the speed and the accurate focusing were impressive.

DxO Mark wasn’t particularly fond of the texture level, which was an issue under every lighting scenario.

Comparison With Others

The Google Pixel 2 still pipped the Mate 10 Pro by a bit, by achieving a score of 99 in stills but a decidedly better 96 on the videos front. Apart from the pixel peepers, very few people will actually notice the difference between phones in real-life, though.

This doesn’t mean that your iPhone 8 or Samsung Galaxy S8’s camera is bad, not at all. In real world scenarios you wouldn’t see much of a difference. However, for photography buffs, the Mate 10 will be the better choice.

      • Jo banda huawei mate 10, galaxy s8, galaxy note 8 etc purchase kar sakta ha us k liye even iPhone X lena koi problem nai ha.. kuch log apple brand ko prefer karte hain, kuch log specs aur features ko. it’s just a personal preference

  • “These scores are not out of a hundred”.
    It is just a coincidence that these numbers added up to be 100. DxOMark does not give these points/numbers as a percentage, it is their own formula to calculate the points for a camera and are not out of a 100.

  • Whatever cry babies… You should admit that after steve jobs death, apple is slowly going down the toilet… They have become samsung, like samsung used to steal features of other companies, they stole wireless re-charging, bezel-less but weird notch on top display, dual-lens camera & even animoji that they were talking about was a completely stolen name and software concept of a developer who has filed a cased against em… Nothing original about Iphone X…

    • Mate 10 ka camera comparison dekha bhi he? IPhone ka result Acha he… Mujhe iPhone Acha nahi lagta… Mere pass s8 plus he… Jo baat thiek ho woh mani chahe

  • dxoMark doesn’t give score out of 100!
    it’s just a score. next year phones could get 105 … on.

  • For the author of this post:
    The DxO doesn’t gives the rating out of 100. It’s just a number they give which distinguishes the camera of the phone from it’s competitors.
