That means the Huawei P20 Pro is still the number one camera phone in the market.

The Apple iPhone XS Max received a score of 105 points. Broken down, the celebrated device got 110 on the Photo test, and 96 on Video.

The new iPhone was praised for producing photos with vivid and pleasant colors, and good exposure and dynamic range in bright light and indoor conditions. It was also commended for capturing good detail, regardless of the situation it was used in.

Despite the score, however, it failed to unseat the Huawei P20 Pro, the reigning number one camera phone. In comparison, the Android device’s triple Leica camera system managed to get a total score of 109, managing 114 points on Photo and 98 points on Video.

The HTC U12+ moved to third place, followed by the Samsung Galaxy Note 9 at fourth, and the Huawei P20 at fifth. The iPhone X and the Huawei Mate 10 Pro are still in the top 10 sitting at the last two spots.

The list is expected to change once the Huawei Mate 20 and Mate 20 Pro debuts this month.
