The Samsung Galaxy S10 and S10+ were just announced yesterday at Samsung’s Unpacked event. Fresh off the announcement, we have a DxOMark score for the S10+’s selfie camera. Now, we’re not huge fans of the DxOMark system but we do know that many put a lot of weight into their scoring.
The selfie camera is an important part of any smartphone and even without a DxOMark score, we know that Samsung makes some of the best on the market. But because the buzz word “industry standard” helps to solidify brands, Samsung had the folks at DxOMark put their selfie camera through their tests.
“Galaxy S10+ scored a standalone first place position on the DxOMark Selfie ranking for its front camera with a score of 96. The DxOMark Selfie test verifies that Galaxy S10+’s dual front camera helped push the new smartphone to the top of the list with its Dual Pixel Selfie camera and second RGB Depth camera.

“Galaxy S10+ also received a joint number one position on the DxOMark Mobile ranking, with an Overall score of 109 (114 Photo score and 97 Video score), the highest score ever for a rear camera. To evaluate smartphone camera performance, DxOMark looked at Galaxy S10+’s triple rear camera for Exposure and Contrast, Color, Autofocus, Texture, Noise, Artifacts, Flash, Stabilization (for Video), Zoom, and Bokeh.
“Designed for consumers looking for a supercharged premium device, Galaxy S10+ is a testament to a decade of Galaxy innovations with its breakthrough display, new camera technology and intelligent performance. Building on Samsung’s camera leadership – Super Speed Dual Pixel and Dual Aperture – Galaxy S10+ introduces new camera technology and advanced intelligence that make it easy to take epic shots and videos.”Samsung press release
So basically, if you’re a believer in DxOMark as a standard then this is good news for you. Some of us already knew that the S10+’s selfie camera would most-likely be really awesome even without a score.
