iOS / Mobile / Photography

With a DxOMark Mobile score of 86, the iPhone 7 secures a podium position with one of the top three scores among all mobile phone cameras tested by DxOMark.

As smartphone cameras keep getting better, it is one of the specifications that a lot of users look to when trying to decide on what smartphone to get. DxOMark has just released their review and score for the new iPhone 7 camera, and has placed it among the top three scores of mobile cameras to date.

With a score of 86, the iPhone 7 joins the likes of the LG G5, Samsung Galaxy Note V, and Samsung S6 edge for camera quality, while smartphones like the HTC 10, Galaxy S7 edge and S6 edge Plus, Sony Xperia X Performance and Xperia Z5, and the Moto Z Force Droid are slightly ahead of it for quality. As one would hope and expect, the iPhone 7 outperformed both the iPhone 6s Plus and iPhone 6S and DxOMark states that the iPhone 7 “offers great exposures with wide dynamic range, accurate white balance and color rendering, as well as good detail preservation when shooting outdoors in bright daylight.”

“While Apple’s flagship phones have a smaller sensor than most of their competitors, Apple uses a variety of innovative technologies to create a compelling smartphone experience in a very-thin form factor” commented Frédéric Guichard, Chief Scientist at DxO. “That includes high-performance lens design, efficient sensor electronics, built-in optical image stabilization and, of course, a high performance multi-image processing pipeline.”

DxOMark will be following up with an iPhone 7 Plus camera review at a later date as they are taking additional time for testing the additional capabilities with its dual-camera architecture.
