DxOMark, the famous French website which provides image quality ratings for standalone cameras, lenses, and smartphones, has just posted its review of the new Samsung Galaxy Note 10, its Plus variant and its 5G model.

The Galaxy Note 10 rear camera setup scored highest, earning an overall rating of 113, with a rating of 118 for photo and 101 for video. The selfie camera scored 99 overall, with 103 awarded for photo and 93 for video. These results put the Galaxy Note 10 at the top of DxOMark's ranking, knocking the Huawei P30 Pro off of top spot by a single point in terms of the rear camera, and 10 points when you compare the selfie scores. The 113 score is also one higher than the Samsung Galaxy S10 5G score of 112.

DxOMark said that thanks to hardware advancements such as a new chipset and a wider aperture on the tele-camera, improved algorithms and fine-tuning, the Note 10+ 5G has further improved on the excellent performance of previous high-end Samsung devices. It is now the top-ranked device for image quality in the DxOMark database. The scores prove the new flagship smartphone to be a solid all-rounder, with excellent still image and video quality in most lighting conditions.

The camera experts also said that the Samsung Galaxy Note10 and Note10+ are equipped to capture pro-grade video without requiring extra gear.  "Featuring Live focus video and Zoom-In Mic to enhance and amplify video content, Note10 brings priority subjects – both images and audio – to the forefront. New Super steady stabilizes the footages – even during Hyperlapse mode."

Other factors that DxOMark cited for the high score were the options to edit-on-the-go, without having to connect to their PC. "The native video editor enables easy editing functionality right on the phone. With the S Pen, users can choose the precise moment they want to trim. Additional features, including Screen recorder, AR Doodle, 3D Scanner and Night Mode on the front-facing camera."

    Further, if you can get Sammy for $840 to $870 dollars, it is good enough. There is justifies its value. Beyond that just go for iPhone. Beyond $1200 no need to spend for a smartphone. That's insane unless of course for sum reason you want to disregard value considering and spend more. Likewise upto $700 is enough for Oneplus, or upto $450 for Xiaomi and Asus.

    LOL 😂 We don't trust DxO anymore. Most of us don't. 😇😇
    The best smartphone cameras are of iPhone and Pixel, followed by Huawei and Samsung. This follows LG & Sony, OPPO & Vivo. This follows Xiaomi, Oneplus, Asus, and this follows others minor brands.
    Just pay attention to my list. Rely on experience of people. Forget DxO for good.
