Samsung Galaxy S10+ Camera Joins Huawei Mate 20 Pro at Top of DxOMark Ranking

Samsung Galaxy S10+ is found to capture excellent colour and exposure in bright light

Consumers are yet to experience the camera performance of the Samsung Galaxy S10+. But in the meantime, DxOMark has come up with its detailed coverage to highlight the major pros and cons of the triple camera setup featured on the latest Samsung flagship. The team at DxOMark has also tested the dual selfie camera of the Galaxy S10+ to reveal how go it is against the competition. Through the preliminary review, the DxOMark folks have given the Galaxy S10+ an overall score of 109, while the phone has particularly received a selfie score of 96 points.

The overall DxOMark Mobile score of 109 points makes the Samsung Galaxy S10+ ranked in line with the Huawei Mate 20 Pro ₹ 69,990 and Huawei P20 Pro ₹ 117,119 that both are claimed to be the top performers in the smartphone market.

The Galaxy S10+ is found to capture excellent colour and exposure in bright light, and the triple camera setup helps take enough detail in both the shadow and highlight areas. The camera is also claimed to capture a noticeably wider tonal range over its competitors. However, in low light and indoor shots, the colour production is perceived to become a bit dull. This brings some reduction on the part of detailing objects in a particular frame.

That being said, the Galaxy S10+ camera controls noise to some extent even in low-light shots. The testers at DxOMark discovered that at some points, the triple camera setup over sharpens artifacts and results in a noticeable blurring of fine textures in some areas.

The dynamic range on the Galaxy S10+ is reported to be quite wide, and the autofocus system helps capture sharp images. Similarly, the flash mode on the phone is noted to perform well by recording a fair amount of exposure. The red-eye effect was noticed on some samples during the initial testing, though.

In terms of giving a bokeh effect, DxOMark remarked that the Galaxy S10+ performs quite well by adding good isolation of the foreground subject along with a blur gradient. But some perspective distortion of the portrait subject was detected while using the Portrait mode. Nevertheless, the Samsung handset is found to offer good detail in close-range zoom shots.

On the part of videos, the team at DxOMark highlighted that the Galaxy S10+ has received a video score of 97 points — majorly thanks to its pleasant colour rendering, fair enough noise reduction and just a slight lack of fine details in most shooting environments. Target exposure of the Galaxy S10+ while recording videos is also good enough across all light levels.
