DxoMark rates Pixel 2's camera as the best

DxOMark recently awarded iPhone 8 Plus as the best camera phone, with a score of 94, and Samsung's Galaxy Note8 also managed to get the same score and tie with iPhone 8 Plus.

However, both flagships have quickly lost the spotlight to the newly launched Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL, as both have received an impressive overall score of 98 in DxO Mark's camera test. Interestingly, last year's Pixel phones were also top-rated camera phone on DxOMark with a score of 89, which was the highest at that time.

The new Pixel 2 phones thump the dual-camera toting iPhone 8 Plus and Galaxy Note 8 despite having a single camera. The Pixel 2 comes with a single 12MP 1/2.6-inch sensor with f/1.8 aperture, dual-pixel auto-focus, optical images and electronic image stabilization, HDR+ technology and new Portrait Mode software resolution. The camera also has 4K video recording capabilities.

According to DxOMarks's test, the Pixel 2's camera offers wide dynamic range in all lighting conditions and excellent auto-focus. It also offer good white balance both indoors and outdoors, good detail preservation, strong flash performance and portraits rendered with pleasing foreground and background blue and bokeh. However, the test suggests that flare, flickering and grid patterns can occur in some lighting condition and Portrait mode sometimes causes visible artifacts. Also Medium- and long-range zooms have some loss of detail.

As for the video, DxOMarks test suggests that Pixel 2 offer very good video stabilization, fast and accurate auto-focus with good subject tracing, good detail preservation indoors and outdoors, good noise reduction and fairly good white balance. The cons include white balance and exposure can be unstable when walking or panning, rotational frame drift in some hand-held videos, and limited dynamic range.

In the test summary from DxOMark, Pixel 2 scored 99 in its photo performance test, just one point short of the Galaxy Note8, which scored 100, and three time higher than iPhone 8 Plus's score of 96. In the video performance test, Pixel 2 scored 96 points, five points more than the original Pixel phone, and the score is highest ever on the video test ranking.
