Compared to its predecessor, far from easy competition, the iPhone 12’s camera system is superior, resulting in sharper and brighter images.
But compared to other products and according to DXOMark, a commercial website known as “an independent benchmark that scientifically tests smartphones, lenses, and cameras,” The iPhone 12 ranks fourth on their list of leading smartphone cameras.
The iPhone 12 Pro does not have the best camera on the market
According to the study, the list of Apple’s three-lens lenses with LiDAR Scanner deserves 128 points. Other features tested include “135 image rating” and “video score of 112”. However, in this study The iPhone 12 Pro is affected by its zoom features:
“With a total of 128 points for the DXOMARK camera, the Apple iPhone 12 Pro is ranked among the top five in our rankings, upgrading last year’s 11 Pro Max by four points and replacing it as Apple’s leading device in our database. At 66, Zoom is the area where the iPhone 12 Pro loses some points for the best in its class, mainly due to its phone lens which only offers 2x visual magnification. “
Some of the things recommended during the test were still photography.DXOMark recommends iPhone 12 Pro autofocus system:
“… the autofocus system is one of the most outstanding, providing fast and accurate performance in most cases.”
If iPhone cameras are generally considered to be the best in the market, the logical question is past the iPhone 12. According to the study, the high levels of smartphone cameras remain in the following sequence.
Listing with the best mobile cameras:
- Huawei Mate 40 Pro – 136.
- IXiaomi Mi 10 Ultra – 133.
- Huawei P40 Pro – 132.
- IPhone 12 Pro – 128.

Although the method and reliability of the DXOMark test are often questioned, especially on the basis that the camera works and gives ‘points’ is challenging, this does not make the results interesting and without hesitation comparing to similar tests.
