iPhone X Beats Pixel 2 in Photo Score But Still Falls Behind in Overall Rating

Apple’s iPhone X topped the ‘DxOMark photo score’ chart in a close contest with Google’s Pixel 2 which secured the second position. However, the Pixel 2 still managed to snatch the first position in ‘overall’ score with a one-point margin getting 98 while the iPhone X secured 97 for the second position overall.

DxOMark is a globally recognized consultancy service and camera performance testing benchmark that uses industry-grade laboratory tools to analyze and compare test results. The company is famous for its in-depth camera and lens image quality tests. However, off late DxoMark has been termed as a paid publicity tool as the company helps “partner” phone makers top its benchmark tests.

In the recent test conducted by DxOMark, the iPhone X managed to beat Pixel 2 in camera tests by scoring 101 against Pixel 2’s 99 – but lost in an overall comparison by a narrow margin. The overall score chart is as follows:

As depicted by the chart, Huawei Mate 10 Pro secured the same position as of Apple iPhone X. Apple iPhone 8 Plus bucketed third position followed by Samsung Galaxy Note 8, Apple iPhone 8 and Google Pixel which secured fourth, fifth and sixth place, respectively.

DxOMark also provided the detailed comparison of both smartphones’ camera quality scores. As suggested by the comparison chart below, the Google’s Pixel 2 won the Exposure and Contrast category along with Color, Auto Focus, Texture and Flash categories. Whereas, the iPhone X’s camera aced the Noise, Artifacts, Zoom and Bokeh categories.


That being said, the final decision for ‘best smartphone camera’ depends upon your personal interest. iPhone X does top camera quality as far as Apple phones go but that can’t be said when comparing it against the best of Android. As we have seen recently, DxOMark was proven wrong be several reviewers which claimed that phones low by the benchmark offer superior image quality and photographic experience.

The benchmark recently changed its testing methods to “improve” its ranking system for smartphone cameras by incorporating certain features such as the bokeh effect.
