Samsung Galaxy S9+ DxOMark
At the time of writing, the Galaxy S9+ is the king of smartphone cameras, managing 99 points from image quality testing site DxOMark. The phone is currently at the head of the mobile phone camera pack, besting the Google Pixel 2 (second with 98 points), the Apple iPhone X (tied at third with 97 points), the Huawei Mate 10 Pro (tied at third with 97 points), and the iPhone 8 Plus (fifth with 94 points).
To quote DxOMark:
The Samsung Galaxy S9 Plus is a smartphone without any real weaknesses in the camera department. In both still and video modes, it performs well across the board, delivering consistently good photo and video image quality in all light and shooting situations, thus earning itself our highest DxOMark Mobile score to date. Add one of the best smartphone zooms and a capable bokeh simulation mode to the mix, and the Galaxy S9 Plus is difficult to ignore for any photo-minded smartphone user. With the Galaxy S9 Plus, Samsung is setting the pace for 2018. We’ll see if the competition can follow suit.
Its not surprising to see the Galaxy S9+ at the top of mobile phone cameras. During our short time with the device at launch day, we saw what the phone was capable of. This was verified when DxOMark crowned it king. Samsung often shines in this area with past flagships almost always making it on the top ten. Moving forward, it will be interesting to see how long they can stay up there, and what competition can come up with in the coming months ahead.
