The throne for the best mobile camera is quickly won and also quickly lost when DxOmark makes its popular review and it is that the camera of the Huawei Mate 10 is positioned as the best achieving a 97 percent score, second only to the Google Pixel 2.
A couple of weeks ago Google's mobile managed to set the record of 98 points in a DxOmark review being the first to arrive That score was followed by the iPhone 8, which scored just 92 percent.
Huawei Mate 10, the runner-up of mobile cameras
The Huawei Mate 10, of which we have already made a first analysis, has a double camera, instead of a single sensor as the Pixel 2 has, in this case it's a 12-megapixel RGB sensor and a 20-megapixel monochrome sensor. It also includes 2x lossless zoom, as well as phase detection and laser autofocus, a development achieved again with Leica.
One of the main aspects recognized by the prestigious DxOmark analysis is that Huawei mobile has a high rate of detail preservation, in addition to achieving fast focus, having good exposure and having a wide dynamic range.
However, not everything is so good, since tests showed that this camera suffers from a low level of texture in all lighting conditions, something that is not so serious if they are second among the best cameras on the market, above Note 8 and Apple terminals.
The procedure to carry out these tests is meticulous, DxOMark engineers capture and evaluate more than 1500 test images and more than 2 hours of video in controlled laboratory environments and in natural indoor and outdoor scenes.
The truth is that the camera of the Huawei Mate 10 is positioned as the best, even achieving a score of 100 for still images, surpassing the Pixel 2 itself in this regard.
