DxOMark is one of the more in-depth camera testing websites, putting smartphone cameras through a variety of testing scenarios. Now, the website has reviewed the OnePlus 8 Pro and issued its findings.
The website gave a score of 119 points to the phone, landing it in tenth place and knocking the Samsung Galaxy S20 Plus out of the top ten. This ranking means itâ€™s also just behind the Huawei Mate 30 Pro and Xiaomi Mi CC9 Pro Premium (as well as the S20 Ultra and Huawei P40 Pro).
DxOMark awarded a photo score of 126 points to the phone, praising the deviceâ€™s detail, accurate exposure, and low level of noise. It also praised the â€œfast and reliableâ€� autofocus system, the color and detail when using the ultra-wide camera, and picture quality when using the flash.
It wasnâ€™t all great though, as the testing company specifically lamented the phoneâ€™s white balance, highlight clipping in â€œchallengingâ€� scenes, artifacts in the edges of ultra-wide snaps, and the exposure and noise in low-light shots.
Furthermore, DxOMark felt that zoom was an area of improvement for the OnePlus 8 Pro, saying its zoom capabilities didnâ€™t challenge top performers in this regard. Check out the websiteâ€™s comparison below.
The OnePlus 8 Pro earned a score of 103 points for video, with DxOMark applauding its exposure, dynamic range, accurate colors, good stabilization, and the level of detail. It wasnâ€™t all good though, as the website also noted minor autofocus issues, visible temporal noise, aliasing and other issues in highlights, slightly under-exposed shadows in HDR situations.
â€œBy and large the OnePlus 8 Pro is a solid performer, too, with no serious weaknesses identified in our tests, and the primary camera is particularly good, thanks to excellent exposure and color, high detail, and well-controlled noise,â€� the firm wrote in its conclusion, while noting that zoom and ultra-wide performance wasnâ€™t quite on par with the best.
â€œThe OnePlus 8 Pro does excel for video, however, securing new top scores for video exposure and color and a top five overall video ranking in our database. Put all that together and the OnePlus 8 Pro is an excellent choice for serious smartphone photographers,â€� it concluded.
