Having a mobile with a good camera nowadays is one of the most important things for many users and, among so many models that currently exist, it is difficult to know which one is the best for taking quality photos. Luckily, there is DxOMark, one of the most important benchmarks that aim to test and list the mobiles with the best camera of the moment, and now we take a look at the 10 that perform best when it comes to taking photos, according to DxOMark.
The following mobiles we see below are ordered from best to worst, although all are among the top today in photographic terms, according to tests conducted by DxOMark. It is also worth noting that the following list may change in the future, as DxOMark is constantly evaluating new phones. It is also worth mentioning that it does not take into account the selfie camera performance of the following phones.
Honor Magic 4 Ultimate
In the first place in the ranking of the 10 mobiles with the best camera of DxOMark, we find the Honor Magic 4 Ultimate, a full-fledged high-end that has managed to get a respectable overall score of 146 points after having been deeply analyzed and having excelled in both the photo and video sections.
That score was made possible by a five-camera setup that features a 50-megapixel main sensor with f/1.6 aperture, a 64-megapixel wide-angle with f/2.2 aperture, and a periscope telephoto lens that is also 64 megapixels but with f/3.5 aperture and 3.5X optical zoom. The other two remaining sensors are a 50-megapixel sensor with an f/2.0 aperture and a 3D TOF sensor for precise field blur. For selfies, the Honor Magic 4 Ultimate has a 12-megapixel lens with an f/2.4 aperture.
Huawei P50 Pro
With a respectable score of 144 points, the Huawei P50 Pro is the second-best camera phone of 2022, according to DxOMark, as it is a phone capable of capturing photos with excellent dynamic range and a high level of detail in both day and night conditions. To do so, it makes use of the main camera module that makes use of a 50-megapixel shooter with f/1.8 aperture, a 64-megapixel telephoto lens with f/3.5 aperture and 3X optical zoom, a 13-megapixel wide-angle lens with f/2.2 aperture and a 40-megapixel monochrome camera with f/1.6 aperture. This photosystem can record in 4K at 60 fps (frames per second), while the front sensor can be made with 13-megapixel f/2.4 aperture photos.
Xiaomi Mi 11 Ultra
The Xiaomi Mi 11 Ultra is not the most advanced mobile of the brand at present, but it has still remained the Xiaomi with the best camera. It becomes that with a photographic configuration consisting of three sensors, it has made its deserved space in the DxOMark ranking, with 143 points, for being a device that can obtain photos with excellent color rendition, a very low noise level (even in conditions where the light is very poor) and a good level of detail, and not to mention the dynamic range it boasts, which, according to DxOMark tests, is very wide and controls shadows and lights very well, even in complex situations.
The main photo sensor of the Xiaomi Mi 11 Ultra is a 50-megapixel resolution sensor with an f/2.0 aperture, while the other two that accompany it are a 48-megapixel telephoto lens (f/4.1) and a 48-megapixel wide-angle (f/2.2). For video recording, it is capable of getting hold of 8K shots at 24 frames per second and, for selfies, it has a 20-megapixel front camera with f/2.4 aperture.
Huawei Mate 40 Pro+
Huawei has always stood out for offering mobiles with excellent cameras, at least as far as the high-end is concerned. For this reason, it has also managed to introduce the Mate 40 Pro+ in the list of mobiles with the best camera of 2022, according to DxOMark.
The 139 points that this device has achieved in DxOMark are thanks to a 50-megapixel quad camera with f/1.9 aperture and video recording in 4K at 60 fps. The other three sensors in that module include a 12-megapixel telephoto lens with f/2.4 aperture and 3X optical zoom, an 8-megapixel periscope telephoto lens with f/4.4 aperture and 10X optical zoom, and a 20-megapixel wide-angle with f/2.4 aperture. On the front, we find a 13-megapixel front camera with f/2.4 aperture and a 3D ToF sensor for the field blur effect.
Xiaomi 12s Ultra
In the fifth position of the DxOMark ranking, we see the Xiaomi 12S Ultra, with a respectable 138 points, offers itself as another excellent camera phone to buy in 2022, as its triple photographic setup has positively shone in DxOMark’s tests, by taking great quality photos both day and night. To that end, it features a 50.3-megapixel (f/1.9) main camera with 8K video recording at 24 frames per second, a 48-megapixel (f/4.1) periscope telephoto lens with 5X optical zoom, and a 48-megapixel (f/2.2) wide-angle lens. A 3D ToF sensor is also found in that rear module, while in the on-screen hole, for selfies, there is a 32-megapixel (f/2.4) lens.
iPhone 13 Pro
Apple is another mobile brand that stands out the most in terms of photography, as its phones have always been at the top in terms of cameras, and the iPhone 13 Pro, with 137 points in DxOMark, is no exception, with its three 12-megapixel sensors. The first is the main one, which has an f/1.5 aperture, while the second is a telephoto lens that boasts an f/2.8 aperture and 3X optical zoom. Finally, it also features a wide-angle with an f/1.8 aperture, and there is also a 3D LiDAR sensor for the field blur effect (bokeh). With this configuration, this device can record videos in 4K at 60 fps. In addition, it also has a 12-megapixel (f/2.2) front-facing shooter.
iPhone 13 Pro Max
There is little to say about the iPhone 13 Pro Max, as this handset features the same camera sensors as the already described iPhone 13 Pro. As a result, this device has also managed to score 137 points in DxOMark, which is why it is another excellent choice for taking photos with a good level of detail in 2022.
Huawei Mate 40 Pro
In eighth place in DxOMark’s ranking, the Huawei Mate 40 Pro, the younger sibling of the Mate 40 Pro+ we talked about above, has managed to score a well-deserved 136 points, given its good performance when it comes to taking high-quality photos and recording videos.
In question, the Huawei Mate 40 Pro has a triple camera consisting of a 50-megapixel resolution main photo sensor with an f/1.9 aperture that allows it to record videos in 4K at 60 frames per second. It also makes use of a 12-megapixel periscope telephoto lens with f/3.4 aperture and a 20-megapixel wide-angle with f/1.8 aperture for wide shots. It also has a 13-megapixel front-facing camera with f/2.4 aperture that’s housed in the pill-shaped in-display hole along with a 3D ToF sensor.
Google Pixel 6 Pro
Google is another brand that does not lag behind in terms of photography, but not so much for the camera sensors used in their phones, but for the image processing that performs software level, which makes the captured photos have a correct exposure, a balanced white balance, a well-achieved dynamic range and a high level of detail in each shot. Not for nothing, many developers extract the GCam (native camera app of the Pixel) so that other mobiles of different brands can take advantage of its benefits and advantages in photographic terms.
Speaking already of Google’s Pixel 6 Pro, the company’s most advanced mobile at present, we see that it has come out very well in DxOMark tests, as it has achieved a mark of 135 points on the platform, and that is thanks to its triple camera system, which is led by a 50-megapixel main shooter that has an f/1.9 aperture and can take videos in 4K at 60 frames per seconds. The other two camera sensors that this handset has are a 48-megapixel telephoto lens with f/3.5 aperture with 4X optical zoom and a 12-megapixel wide-angle lens with f/2.2 aperture.
