Samsung Galaxy S10 series is out and so is their DxOMark scoring that could tell the prowess of the cameras they have. Well, the mobile camera rating website tested the front cameras of the Galaxy S10 Plus and has provided the results according to which the device is on the top.
Last month, DxOMark launched the test for front-facing smartphone cameras as well and the top scorers were Pixel 3 and Galaxy Note 9 but now with a score of 96, the Galaxy S10 Plus has the outplayed the two.
Samsung Galaxy S10 Plus dual selfie cameras include a 10MP primary sensor and an 8MP sensor for depth sensing for creating bokeh. Folks at DxOMark took the device into the new testing process, which is, however, includes the same tests as they perform for the rear cameras. The Photo score of the Galaxy S10 Plus is 101 and video score is 88.
The test concludes that the secondary depth-sensing camera has helped the Galaxy S10 Plus over the Galaxy Note 9 improved the quality of bokeh effect in Portrait mode. Samsung has managed to increase the image detail this time.
Overall, the device captures good stills with accurate white balance and pleasant color rendering but it looks dull in low light. While the autofocus is accurate, it’s the depth of field which is “quite narrow,” meaning, the background detail is often out of focus and people at the back of group portraits are rendered soft.
The Portrait mode does quite well in isolating the foreground subjects from the background and applies a nice gradient to the background blur.
The Galaxy S10 Plus also attains the highest video selfie score so far and the credit goes to the good overall results for color, focus, texture, and stabilization. In one of the three stated cons of video performance, DxOMark states that there is some high-frequency camera shake in static scenes.
Well, the Galaxy S10 Pus also scores the highest score when it comes to rear cameras mobile rating. With 109 overall mobile camera rating, the device is now staying with the two other top players Huawei Mate 20 and Mate 20 Pro. Like the front cameras, the Galaxy S10 Plus also offers accurate white balance and good color rendering most situations. It offers low noise levels, wide dynamic range, well-exposed flash images and good details in close-range zoom images along with realistic bokeh effect. But it lacks at longer zoom settings and offers lack of fine details in most conditions.
It offers good white balance in color in most situations, fast and accurate autofocus, and effective stabilization but delivers slightly undersaturated colors in low light.
