Please note: In September 2019, we updated the DXOMARK Mobile test protocol to cover ultra wide angle performance and renamed the protocol personnaliser sa coque samsung galaxy core 4g DXOMARK Camera. We coque samsung s8 art also expanded our low light testing and created the new Night sub score, which incorporates the previous Flash score. We have retested this device using the new Wide and Night test protocols and updated the scores in this review, but we have not changed coque samsung 2017 j3 the text from the original review.

Marking the 10th anniversary of iPhone, the launch of the iPhone X was hugely significant for Apple, so getting the camera specifications and performance right was crucial. The iPhone X features a very similar dual cam setup to its sister model, the iPhone 8 Plus, with one difference that improved results in several areas. The dual 12Mp sensors remain, including the same wide angle f/1.8 lens with optical image stabilization (OIS) for the main camera, but for the second camera, there an improved telephoto lens that features a wider aperture f/2.4 lens with OIS. The front facing camera gets an upgrade, too, with new Face ID technologies benefitting selfie enthusiasts, including improved depth mapping that makes Portrait mode and bokeh simulation possible. This article is designed to highlight the most important results of samsung a20e coque samsung the testing.
With a Photo score of 101, the Apple iPhone X achieves the best results so far for still images, edging out the Huawei coque samsung galaxy a3 2016 auchan Mate 10 Pro and coque samsung j3 barcelona the Samsung Galaxy Note 8, the previous joint leaders in the Photo ranking, by one point. Compared to its cousin iPhone 8 Plus, the X improves noticeably on Zoom performance, but also does better in terms of Exposure, Color, Texture, Noise and Artifacts. Other key strengths in still image mode include very good exposures and HDR images, accurate color rendering, good detail with low noise, as well as a natural looking bokeh effect in Portrait mode.
For video, the X doesn quite rise to the same high water mark, coque samsung galaxy s5 mignon achieving a video sub score of 89 points. With coque samsung galaxy a20 amazon its key strengths good exposure with fast convergence during lighting changes, accurate color rendering as well as fast and accurate autofocus and effective video stabilization, the X scores are almost identical to the iPhone 8 Plus Its overall score of 97 puts the iPhone X into joint second place with the Huawei Mate 10 in the current DxOMark Mobile overall rankings, just behind coque cheval samsung a20e the Google Pixel 2 with 98 points.
Shooting outdoors or in bright light conditions, the iPhone X boasts excellent exposures and coque samsung s7 edge kase copes very well with high contrast scenes, ensuring good detail preservation in both highlights and coque samsung gt s7390 shadows. Skies were coque samsung grand prime antichoc especially impressive in many of our outdoor test scenes, displaying good color and highlight detail at sunset, and striking cloud details that really White balance is generally accurate and repeatable outdoors, with good color rendering ensuring well saturated and pleasant hues. Texture is excellent, too, with good fine detail visible in intricate areas; and although noise is generally well controlled, a low frequency chroma noise can be noticeable in areas of plain color.
The iPhone X flash pictures display good detail and low noise, neutral white balance, and only slight fall off in the corners of the frame. However, flash results for images shot in very low light aren quite as impressive, with occasional underexposure, particularly in flash only pictures. A red eye effect with portraits is frequently visible as well.
Zoom and Bokeh
The iPhone X hardware upgrade on the telephoto camera to a brighter aperture lens with OIS ensures better zoom shots and sharper portraits (particularly indoors) than those taken with the iPhone 8 Plus. Capturing movies samsung galaxy a20e coque portefeuille outdoors or in bright light exposures are very good and handle extremes of brightness very well, with the same good detail preservation in the shadows and highlights as we saw with stills. In very low light, coque samsung galaxy s5 blanc videos are often slightly underexposed, but exposure convergence is both fast and smooth coque samsung a20e silicone rouge during lighting changes. The level of detail in video is good in both outdoor and indoor movies, but a buildup of luminance noise is evident in low light conditions. Autofocus is fast and accurate, with good tracking capabilities, and although video stabilization is effective, some vibration with walking movement is evident.
Photo scores explained
The Apple iPhone X achieves a total Photo score of 101, which is calculated from its scores in coque samsung a20e or dessin de coque samsung tests that examine different aspects of its performance under several lighting conditions. In this section, we take a closer look at these image quality sub scores. It had great saturation between 20 and 1000 Lux, although the color in extreme low light is noticeably less vivid due to underexposure. Color shading is also extremely well controlled, with consistent color across the frame evident in both bright and low light shots, which is something we rarely see with smartphone images.
Generally the iPhone X phase detection autofocus system is very accurate, delivering consistently sharp images when shooting static scenes in coque samsung galaxy core prime death note all lighting conditions. When shooting moving scenes, the iPhone X will get you sharp images as well. However, in some cases (approximately 40%), the focus lag can measure up to 600ms, meaning that you might just miss the decisive moment by a whisker. Those occasional slight delays aside, the focus hit rate was excellent, so you can be coque samsung galaxy core plus en silicone confident of snapping consistently in focus shots in all lighting conditions.
A very good score for artifacts, which are generally well controlled, and excellent results for sharpness across the field, as well as for vignetting, distortion, and chromatic aberration. The X lost points for noticeable ghosting in low light portraits and for some flare in backlit scenes outdoors, although the flare effect isn overly strong. A very noticeable moir effect is evident in high frequency patterns, too, as well as a cyan shift that occasionally visible in blue skies. Color quantization (pixelation) is frequently visible in large areas of uniform color.
The iPhone X coque samsung galaxy s6 jack daniels flash output is well centered in the frame. Some flash fall off is visible, resulting in darker corners, but the effect is less pronounced than on the iPhone 8 Plus. In both flash only and mixed light scenes, the iPhone X shots display neutral white balance, with repeatable results over consecutive exposures. However, consistent with the underexposure we observed in extreme low light, the iPhone X flash only pictures are noticeably underexposed compared to those taken with the iPhone 8 Plus. Some color quantization (pixelation) is visible in homogenous areas, and a very noticeable red eye effect occurs, but detail preservation is good, with low levels of noise.
The improvement to the iPhone X telephoto lens, including a wider aperture f/2.4 lens with OIS, helped lift its score over the 8 Plus. Using the 2x optical zoom, fine detail preservation is excellent in both outdoor and indoor conditions; and although softer changer coque samsung galaxy s5 and noisier in extreme low light, zoom shots remain acceptable. Digital zoom shots at 4x compatibilité coque samsung are also very good when shooting outdoors, and are acceptable at 8x, but good detail preservation in lower light conditions using the digital zoom remains challenging.
The iPhone X improved telephoto lens also ensures sharper portraits in both indoor and outdoor conditions. The bokeh simulation algorithm applied in Portrait mode is also one of the nicer ones we seen, producing a pleasant depth of field effect, a good bokeh shape with nice circular spectral highlights, and very repeatable results. The background blur isn as strong as we seen for other devices (notably the Samsung Galaxy Note 8), but that gives the X bokeh a coque samsung ace3 slightly more natural appearance. The X lost points for noticeable failures in depth estimation, with elements in the foreground slightly blurred (although not as blurred as the coque telephone samsung a20 background) whether they connected to the portrait subject or not. Some artifacts and masking errors around the portrait are visible on 100% crops, too, but they won be particularly noticeable in images displayed on small scale…
