DxOMark camera rating website has become a quite reputed benchmark when it comes to comparing the performance of smartphone cameras that offers a detailed and comprehensive insight about various aspects of the performance, tested in a wide range of circumstances and scenarios. Currently, Huawei’s P20 Pro is the leader (previously Galaxy S9 Plus) when it comes to the smartphone camera performance, though this doesn’t mean it could be the best smartphone camera for you. In the latest happening in this regard, a new smartphone by HMD Global has been put to test named Nokia 8 Sirocco which secured 84 points.
Getting 85 points in the photo department while 82 in the video, which makes it above Sony Xperia XZ Premium with 83 points and just below iPhone 7 with 85 points. Nokia Sirocco was launched earlier this year with 12MP and a 13MP dual camera setup powered by Zeiss lenses where the primary lens of 12MP offers a unit pixel area of 1.4μm and offers an aperture of F/1.8.
The phone also boasts optical image stabilization and offers fast and accurate autofocus which gives it an edge in the DxOMark standings upon many other phones. Offering amazing capturing experience, Nokia Sirocco gives accurate white balance and exposure along with the dynamic range which is quite good. Other aspects like capturing dark shadows and indoor exposure are impressive as well.
The downside or possible weakness of the phone is the night scene performance where details get lost and the noise seems to be quite apparent. Though overall Nokia Sirocco performs pretty well compared to the competition and could be utilized as a daily driver for everyday camera usage.
