The camera review we have all been waiting for — OnePlus 8 Pro DxOMark review is finally here, and it is not looking good.
The OnePlus 8 Pro scored an overall 119 points in the DxOMark review, which puts it at the end of the top 10 camera smartphones reviewed by DxOMark.
The OnePlus’ latest flagship scored less than Oppo Find X2 Pro which ranked 3rd in the DxOMark camera test and holds the same image sensor as OnePlus 8 Pro— Sony IMX689.
However, not all is bad! The Android phone snatches the 10th position from the Samsung Galaxy S20+, whose overall score is 118. It is also two positions above Apple’s iPhone 11 Pro Max.
Apart from that, OnePlus 8 Pro managed to score an overall 103 in the video section, which is a mere two points less than the best camera smartphone, Huawei’s P40 Pro, according to DxOMark.
OnePlus 8 DxOMark Camera Test
Despite having a similar configuration as OnePlus 7 Pro, DxOMark notes that OnePlus 8 Pro camera “represents a modest improvement” over its predecessor.
OnePlus 8 Pro scores an overall 126 in the photo section, which is a “very good score.” However, the camera shows mediocre results in zoom, ultra-wide, night, and bokeh tests.
During the camera test, DxOMark observed that Ulta-Wide of OnePlus 8 is good for shooting at various focal lengths but doesn’t come close to the best alternatives such as the Samsung S20+.
While zoom is good with great retention of color and exposure, the noise becomes evident at the medium range. Coming to night shots, DxOMark notes that the “OnePlus 8 Pro is somewhat off the pace… compared to the most effective “after dark” smartphones.”
Overall, the camera is good, but still, OnePlus has a long way to go if it wants to grab the title of the best camera smartphone.
