DxOMark portal has finally published a large camera review of one of the most expensive flagships in history, the Samsung Galaxy S20 Ultra, which is priced at $1,400.

We already assumed that such a review lag was associated with the expectation of stable firmware. After the Samsung Galaxy S20 Ultra entered the market, the manufacturer has already released several updates for the camera.

Samsung Galaxy S20 Ultra took only seventh place in the ranking of DxOMark

Samsung Galaxy S20 Ultra received 132 points for the quality of photos, but only 102 points for video capabilities. The final result was 122 points, which put him in seventh place in the ranking of the best DxOMark camera phones. It scored as much as the Honor V30 Pro, while losing to Huawei P40 Pro (128), Honor 30 Pro+ (125), Oppo Find X2 Pro (124), Xiaomi Mi 10 Pro (124) and Huawei Mate 30 Pro 5G (123).

DxOMark experts appreciated high-quality color reproduction and a wide dynamic range, as well as a low noise level in good lighting. The super wide-angle camera, which was called one of the best in the class, was given special praise.

The Samsung Galaxy S20 Ultra has problems with the autofocus system at short distances and in low light. When shooting video in low light, there was a significant decrease in details. In terms of sharpness, it is inferior to the Xiaomi Mi 10 Pro and other smartphones, and when you zoom in, obvious artifacts begin to appear.

Therefore, if you are looking for the best camera phone on the market, then you can buy it much cheaper than for $1,400.
