DxOMark says iPhone 6s camera is inferior to top Android phones

October 14th, 2015 at 1:11 PM
iPhone 6s Nexus 6P Galaxy S6

The new iPhone 6s features cameras that are better than anything Apple has released before. The rear and selfie cameras have sensors with more megapixels, there’s 4K video support, the new Live Photos feature is a fun addition and the front-facing Retina flash is a smart feature as well. Many professional photographers have praised the iPhone 6s, some even comparing it to dedicated camera in certain tests.

However, DxOMark put the iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus through its rigorous testing, and the site has determined that the phone’s camera is inferior to its top Android rivals.

The iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus both scored an 82 in DxOMark’s review, which is the same score their predecessors were given.

The Xperia Z5 got an 87, with the Galaxy S6 Edge, Nexus 6P, LG G4 and Moto X Style following Sony’s handset with 86, 84, 83 and 83, respectively. A recent real-life photo and video comparison between iPhone 6s and Xperia Z5 revealed the new iPhone can perform better than Sony’s top handset in some situations. Overall, however, Sony’s handset apparently packs the better camera.

DxOMark found the iPhone 6s photos to excel at overall exposure, autofocus in all test conditions, white balance in most conditions, and detail preservation in bright light. When it comes to video, the iPhone 6s offers fast, accurate and smooth autofocus in all conditions, good overall exposure and white balance, and effective stabilization in good lighting conditions.

As for the cons, photos taken on iPhone 6s show some luminance noise in low light, color shading when indoors, a yellow cast in outdoor conditions and occasional ghosting. Videos, meanwhile can show noticeable noise in low light conditions, especially in the corners, and they can also have slight color shading in low light conditions.
