DXOMark has announced that it will start a special “selfie week” from today , from May 4 to May 8 , with a daily selfie score to meet the long-standing need for user-wide comparisons of selfies . The five models are said to include Apple’s iPhone 11, Samsung Galaxy S20 Ultra, the Glory V30 Pro, the Samsung Galaxy A71, and an unknown model.
As it is, this afternoon, DXO was the first to post a selfie score for the Samsung Galaxy S20 Ultra – a total score of 100 (104 points for photos, 95 points for video), equal to Huawei’s nova 6 5G (105 points for photos and 93 points for video), and second only to Huawei’s P40 Pro’s 103 (108 points for photos and 95 points for video).
DXO said the Samsung Galaxy S20 Ultra had an excellent photo score (104 points) and the third-highbest photo score in the DXO database, just behind Huawei’s P40 Pro and Nova 6 5G, which were 108 and 105 points respectively.
The Samsung Galaxy S20 Ultra has a video score of 95, which is listed as the top phone for DXO front-facing camera video along side with Huawei’s P40 Pro. Even in low light, you can still produce excellent exposure, clear detail, pleasant colors, and its depth of field can clearly show multiple subjects and backgrounds, so users can record video blog videos or other self-portrait videos with little complaint.
However, autofocus instability and occasional unnecessary refocusing are a small problem for the camera, and exposure sometimes changes when recording on the move. White balance is also a bit cold outdoors, with noise and artifacts in certain lighting conditions. But these problems are largely less serious, and users can still rely on the S20 Ultra’s front-facing camera to capture excellent video quality.
DXO believes that the S20 Ultra’s front-facing camera has no obvious flaws, and its photos and videos are performing well, making it a good choice for selfie enthusiasts and finishing second.
Its exposure is generally good, the dynamic range is wide, the bokeh photos are pleasing, the noise is not much, the autofocus function is also very reliable, can take a clear face at different cameras, help to produce excellent images, plus first-class front-facing camera video, photographers should be very satisfied with the results of the Samsung Galaxy S20 Ultra selfie camera shooting results.
