The iPhone 14 Pro has the second best camera

The iPhone 14 Pro achieves the second highest score ever in the DxOMark camera test, with only one Chinese device scoring higher. When it comes to video, Apple’s new flagship smartphone is the best, but only slightly better than its predecessor when it comes to photos.

The iPhone 14 Pro is Apple’s first smartphone with a 48-megapixel camera. Until now, the resolution was limited to 12 MP, but this is still the case with the standard models. It is even more interesting how the new flagship performs in the prestigious test of French camera experts. DxOMark He has hit. Although it just didn’t make it to the top spot, Apple should be pleased with the result.

Incredibly good videos

Overall, the iPhone 14 Pro scored 146 points, just that Honor Magic4 Ultimate You have one more point in your account. The Chinese smartphone owes this to the excellent photographic performance of its main camera, for which it was rewarded with 150 points in this category. Apple’s flagship “only” scored 143 points here. The opposite is true when it comes to video recordings, whereby the iPhone 14 Pro received a triumphant 149 points, while the Chinese competition had to make do with 137 points.

The fact that a lot of megapixels alone doesn’t make a good camera can be seen in the fact that last year’s Apple Pro models with their 12MP main cameras were able to score 140 points. The difference of the photo with the new 48 MP snapshots is therefore less than expected. However, it should be mentioned that DxOMark does not evaluate RAW mode, in which full resolution can be used. This is especially useful when there is a lot of light available. Normally, four pixels are combined, which means that the iPhone 14 Pro also produces photos with 12 MP.

Advantage in difficult lighting conditions

However, according to the evaluation, the new flagship has an advantage in more demanding lighting conditions and high-contrast scenes. Experts praise the photos’ “nice, vivid” colors and “accurate skin tones.” They also highlight “wide dynamic range”, “excellent contrasts”, “excellent autofocus”, “nice bokeh” and “high quality continuous zoom in the near and mid range”.

Basically the same advantages apply to video recordings, with DxOMark also emphasizing “excellent” image stabilization here. Notably, the iPhone 14 Pro received top marks in five of the seven subcategories in the video review: exposure, color, autofocus, image noise, and stabilization.
