Nothing lasts forever, and in the field of mobile technology this is true several times over. Xiaomi Mi 10 Pro was dethroned DxOMark, where it was evaluated last month as the best photo car today.
We were not pleased with the changes in the DxOMark ranking
While this is not positive news for us Xiaomi fans, we must add that this is how progress works, which ultimately forces those involved to improve. But what is interesting about this information is that the smartphone has become the new king of mobile photography Oppo Find X2 Pro, which is equipped with three cameras with the highest resolution 48 MPx.
Oppo Find X2 Pro is the new flagship of the Chinese manufacturer Oppo with a 6,7-inch AMOLED panel that powers the Snapdragon 865 along with 12 GB LPDDR5 RAM and 256 GB UFS 3.0 storage. It is equipped with three sensors consisting of:
- 48 MPx Sony IMX689 CMOS, size 1 / 1,4, with an aperture of f / 1,7 and a pixel size of 1.12 μm
- 13 MPx SMOS telephoto lens with f / 3.0 aperture and 1.0 μm pixel size
- 48 MPX widescreen + macro sensor Sony IMX586 Esmor RS CMOS, size 1 / 2.25 with aperture f / 2,2 and pixel size 0,80 um
With this configuration, the smartphone won the DxOMark rating 124 pointswhich is the same score as the Mi 10 Pro. How is it possible that a smartphone that has fewer sensors with much lower resolution could get such a high score?
When we look at the individual items of the evaluation of the Mi 10 Pro cameras, the item of zoom - ie zoom - got a significant score. The other items are more or less balanced, and in some of them the Oppo smartphone obviously has a higher score, which achieved the same end result as the Mi 10.
Oppo Find X2 Pro thus has better traditional photos with better exposure and better color interpretation. He gained more points in autofocus and when shooting night scenes.
The number of megapixels is not directly proportional to the quality
This is an example that shows that racing in megapixels doesn't always mean the best results when taking photos. Although we are a little disappointed with the relatively short presence of the Mi 10 Pro at the top of the DxOMark rankings, we expected that sooner or later this would happen.
However, both versions of the Mi 10 still belong to the comprehensively top smartphones, in which there is a perfectly harmonized design, powerful hardware and a relatively favorable price.
