DxOMark has just released their results of the in-depth camera testing of iPhone XS Max which earned second place just behind the Huawei P20 Pro which was released last year.

The iPhone XS Max achieves a total score of 105 points which is just four points lower than 109 points of the P20 Pro. Both the quality of the photo and the video in good lighting conditions are excellent, with a very wide dynamic range and good details.

DxO mark is known for benchmarking smartphone cameras. The company labels the camera as one of the best smartphone cameras they have ever tested, carrying noticeable improvements from its predecessor iPhone X.

Both still and video image quality in bright light is excellent, with a very wide dynamic range and good detail.

Autofocus and image stabilization work swiftly and efficiently. One of the best things about the camera is that it successfully manages to good results consistently, a trait that most of the phones struggle with, in varying environments.

However, In lower light, luminance noise becomes a little more intrusive than other high-end phones, and the iPhone’s zoom mode lags somewhat behind the competition (specifically, the Huawei P20 Pro).

The question is, will iPhone XS Max be able to retain its position? because there are two contenders that it should worry about; Huawei Mate 20 and Google Pixel 3, both of which are going to be released this month.
