There’s no denying the fact that Samsung flagships come with top-of-the-line camera hardware and are often top three in the market, if not at the peak. A lot of the Galaxy S9’s marketing has revolved around its camera. Will it live up to the hype that it has generated so far? Apparently so according to DxO Mark.
The Galaxy S9+ got praise for offering “one of the most comprehensive smartphone imaging feature sets available today.” Its score came up to a grand total of 99, with a record-setting 104 in snapping photos. The comparatively lower video score of 91 definitely warrants some improvement however.
While DxOMark scores shouldn’t be taken as the last word on smartphone photography, they are a pretty good indicator of how good a device’s camera is. Samsung is setting the pace for all other smartphone manufacturers this year, and we’re looking forward to see whether any other companies (Hey Huawei, bring on the P20) will step up to the challenge.
