Another day, another phone release that tops the photography charts. DxOMark has released their findings on Samsung’s latest Galaxy S9+, and unsurprisingly, it’s the best smartphone camera on the market, beating out Google’s Pixel 2 and the Apple iPhone X. At this point, it’s almost a guarantee that the newest device will always have the best camera, especially in the very top of the flagship market with Samsung, Apple, and Google.
Now if you already bought a Google Pixel 2, don’t feel too bad. The Galaxy S9+ edged out the Pixel 2 by a single point, scoring a 99 overall compared to the Pixel’s 98 and the iPhone X’s 97. This score is a blend of photo and video scores, so it is a little more complex than a single number.
The Galaxy S9+ scored a 104 in photography, but only a 91 in video. Both of those scores were good enough to beat out Apple’s flagship, but the Google Pixel 2, for example, still shoots better video than the Galaxy S9+. For photography, it’s a pretty clear winner, but if you take a lot of photos and videos or even mostly videos, the answer becomes much less clear.
Either way, these scores are all really high for all of these devices, and unless you’re putting photos side by side, you can rest assured that your phone takes really, really good pictures and videos.
