The newly unveiled Xiaomi Mi 8 is not the world's best cameraphone, but it's pretty close, according to the latest DxOMark mobile review. Meanwhile, the Mi 8 Explorer Edition may not be as "transparent" as you think.
To celebrate the company's eight anniversary, Xiaomi has officially taken the wraps off the highly anticipated Mi 8, as well as the truly remarkable Mi 8 Explorer Edition and slightly lower-end Mi 8 SE.
The dual camera HTC U12+ has nothing on the three-lens Huawei P20 Pro, but the "regular" P20 loses its silver medal in the DxOMark Mobile photography and videography ratings.
For comparison, that smartphone camera review score matches the original Google Pixel of 2016 and last year's HTC U11, but misses out on a wide-angle camera.
The triple lens Huawei P20 Pro and dual camera P20 are easily the world's best smartphones for photography and videography, according to DxO's imaging experts.
101 points for photo performance and 88 in video apparently equates to an impressive total score of 97 points for the Xiaomi Mi MIX 2S dual camera.
It's not up for grabs yet, but DxOMark says the newly unveiled Samsung Galaxy S9+ has the best camera on a smartphone today.
The video-obsessed flagship from LG gets the DxO treatment and it does not produce quite comparable results to other smartphones of its ilk for testers.
As expected, the iPhone X is deemed by DxO's camera analysts the world's top performer... for stills. But video-recording quality is short of stellar.
If you feel your USB Type-C Android phone isn't shooting good enough photos or videos, the DxO ONE will soon take your mobile imaging to the next level.
The Note 8's DxOMark Mobile overall score is 94, which matches the iPhone 8 Plus. That review was published just prior to the Note 8's.
With 94 points on a 100 scale, Apple's new iPhone 8 Plus brings the Google Pixel's DxOMark Mobile reign to a halt, at least until the iPhone X arrives.
Overall, you would do very well with the OnePlus 5 snapping pictures and videos in most situations. But you'll want to watch for a few pitfalls.
