Apple’s new iPhone 13 Pro scores 137 points in DxOMark but falls in fourth place behind Huawei and the Xiaomi Mi 11 Ultra.
When the iPhone 13 was presented a few days ago and Apple showed for the first time that new cinematic mode that is almost magic for a smartphone, but the truth is that iPhone 13 Pro does not seem to have impressed the experts at DxOMark.
As we already know that DxOMark is an unreliable company for many because there has been a scandal in the past pointing out that they had received money for their reviews and their thorough photographic analysis.
Be that as it may, Apple’s result is outstanding, as its 137 points are linked in part to an outstanding result in the camera section, which scored 144 points, with 76 and 119 points for zoom and video respectively.
In addition, DxOMark analysts highlight excellent color tones and white balance, along with an ultra-fast, accurate, and very stable autofocus. They add in their review that the iPhone 13 handles exposure perfectly, achieving great detail in all its shots both indoors and outdoors and in a variety of ambient light conditions.
Detail of the iPhone 13 Pro scores in DxOMark
As can be read in the published analysis, Apple has mounted custom sensors from Sony and has managed to get the most out of them through software and very high-quality processing, achieving significant improvements over the iPhone 12 in the section of both photography and video.
In any case, there are also shortcomings, always according to DxOMark experts, who emphasize the limited dynamic range in especially high-contrast scenes, as well as minor problems in video tests such as loss of sharpness, ghosting in low light conditions, or lack of textures occasionally.
At this point, we already know that these benchmarks are always controversial, although the truth is that results are more similar to what was expected this time.
