Best smartphone cameras in the world. As smartphones become increasingly powerful, so do their camera systems, and for many, the camera’s capability is the most critical factor to consider when buying a new smartphone.
While many people would look at a camera’s megapixel rating to determine its overall quality, this only tells part of the story.
Modern smartphone cameras use a combination of different technologies and features to improve the quality of the pictures they take.
A great and reliable way to investigate which smartphone’s camera will best suit you is to use an independent benchmark, such as those provided by DxOMark.
DxOMark completes thorough testing on the camera systems of a range of smartphones to assign the front and rear cameras of each a rating.
According to DxOMark’s testing methodology, it leaves devices on their default settings and tests their cameras in a variety of environments to assess different aspects of each camera.
“Overall, an engineering team works for a week to capture and evaluate over 1,600 test images and more than 2 hours of video for each review,” DxOMark states on its FAQ page.
“Every device is tested in exactly the same way, in identically configured lab setups, using the same test procedures, the same scenes, the same types of image crop rankings and the same software. This means DxOMark results are reliable and repeatable.”
DxOMark then assigns each camera a photo and video score, which is used to calculate an overall camera rating score.
Rear camera rankings
According to DxOMark, the smartphone with the best rear-camera system is the Huawei P50 Pro, which received an overall rating of 144.
To put this into perspective, the top twenty rear camera scores range from 126 to 144, so competition between devices is tight.
Notably, the Huawei Mate 40 Pro+ — released in October 2020 — ranks third on the list with a score of 139.
