Today, it is very important to have a Smartphone with a good camera, or this is the demand of a large number of users. Because there is nothing like taking photos and recording high-quality videos in all conditions, day or night, especially if you are a self-media or photography enthusiast. With so many Smartphones on the market today, it is difficult to tell which one has the best camera, or at least know how good the camera is, which cannot be done by one person alone.
Fortunately, there is a testing platform abroad, DxOMark, which is responsible for scientifically checking the cameras of the most popular phones at the moment, and the results they obtain in each test, in order to give the final score. Rankings are built month by month based on points. So now let’s go to the terminals with the best cameras in January and this month.
Below is DxOMark’s ranking of the best camera phones as of January 2022 based on test scores. This ranking is updated dynamically. If there is a new phone launch conference, it needs to be emphasized that the ranking is only for the rear camera. In this ranking, Chinese-made Smartphones live up to expectations and occupy the majority of the list. Let’s take a look!
1. Huawei P50 Pro (144 points)
According to DxOMark in its database, the Huawei P50 Pro phone has the best camera out there, with a score of 144 making him the undisputed champion.
The phone has a quadruple Leica camera system, a main camera consisting of 50MP resolution and f/1.8 aperture. The phone has a 64MP telephoto lens with 3.5x optical zoom and f/3.5 aperture. There’s also a 13MP wide-angle lens with f/2.2 aperture and the latest 40MP B/W camera that help capture more information from the scene for photos and results with better contrast and color reproduction. In addition, it can record 8K videos. On the other hand, the Huawei P50 Pro has a 13MP front camera with f/2.4 aperture.
2. Mi 11 Ultra (143 points)
Xiaomi Mi 11 Ultra is another phone with the best camera out there. 143 points make it a well-deserved runner-up.
The triple camera system of this Smartphone consists of a 50MP main lens with an f/2.0 aperture, a 48MP telephoto lens with 5x optical zoom and an f/2.2 aperture, and a 128° field of view (higher) 48MP ultra-wide-angle lens composition. Such a configuration makes it a phone capable of capturing photos with a fairly high level of detail even in adverse conditions. If we add that it can record incredible video at 8K resolution, and a 20MP front-facing camera with f/2.0 aperture, it’s no surprise that it’s at the top of the list of camera phones.
3. Huawei Mate 40 Pro+ (139 points)
It was released in November 2020, and although it has been over a year since its release, it is still one of the best camera phones, with a score of 139, which is not to be underestimated, and currently ranks third.
This is thanks to a 50MP main camera with f/1.9 aperture, 12MP telephoto with f/2.4 aperture and 3x optical zoom, another telephoto lens with 12MP with f/4.4 aperture, and 10x optical zoom, 20 MP wide angle, f/2.4 aperture and a fifth ToF 3D camera for depth. There are five camera configurations in total.
The Huawei Mate 40 Pro+ is a premium device in every way and deserves a spot in our DXOMARK camera ranking. In many ways, it turns out to be similar to the Mate 40 Pro, but the Plus model’s improved telephoto and ultra-wide-angle cameras will have an impact on photographers who like to zoom from very wide to very long. Adding optical image stabilization to the main camera also helps improve texture, noise trade-off, and close-range telephoto results.
Video quality is equally good, and for selfies and the like, there’s a 13MP camera with f/2.4 aperture.
4. iPhone 13 Pro Max (137 points)
According to DxOMark, the iPhone 13 Pro Max scored 137 points on the platform, ranking it fourth among the best mobile cameras out there. That’s thanks to its excellent three rear cameras, which are 12MP. One is the main camera, the other is the 3X telephoto, and the last one is wide-angle. The professional camera system of this Smartphone has made its biggest advancement ever, with new ultra-wide, wide-angle and telephoto cameras capturing stunning photos and videos, powered by the unrivaled performance of the A15 Bionic, outperforming leading competitors More powerful.
These technologies enable impressive new photo capabilities never before seen on iPhone, such as macro photography with the new Ultra-Wide camera and 2.2x improved low-light performance with the new Wide camera. New computational photography features like Photo Style personalize the look of images in the camera app, and Night Mode is now included on all cameras in both models. The video takes a huge leap forward with Movie Mode for beautiful depth-of-field transitions, macro videos, time-lapse and slo-mo, and even better low-light performance.
Its selfie camera is also 12MP
5. iPhone 13 Pro (137 points)
Since it has the same camera and software as the iPhone 13 Pro Max, the iPhone 13 Pro also scored 137 points on DxOMark, ranking fifth, so I won’t repeat it here.
6. Huawei Mate 40 Pro (136 points)
With Huawei Mate 40 Pro, Huawei has three Smartphones that successfully ranked in DxOMark in January. The phone has a 50MP (f/1.9) triple camera, a 12MP telephoto (f/3.4) with 5X magnification, and a 20MP wide-angle (f/1.8).
Through cooperation with Leica, Huawei has made a huge improvement in the shooting performance of its phones and has become one of the leading products in the smartphone market today.
The imaging on the Huawei Mate 40 Pro is great. With its triple-lens camera, the phone offers everything from standard to wide-angle, zoom to macro photography. With its built-in HDR algorithm, the lighting effect on the image is more vivid. The screen itself supports HDR for better viewing of captured photos.
Although in terms of standard photography, Huawei is still slightly behind the Apple iPhone 12 series. However, when it comes to landscape, sky, and low-light photography, the Huawei Mate 40 Pro impresses. There’s also a big improvement in the color and exposure of photos, which the previous model had issues with. This makes images feel sharper and rounder.
The Huawei Mate 40 Pro also has dual 13MP ToF 3D front cameras.
7. Google Pixel 6 Pro (135 points)
Google Pixel 6 Pro with a better camera is, as advertised before its launch, a competitive camera phone, and DxOMark’s tests confirm it. Its camera package consists of a 50MP (f/1.9) main lens + 48MP (f/3.5) telephoto lens with 5x optical zoom + 12MP (f/2.2) wide angle, making it one of the best options.
The camera of this Smartphone has some major upgrades. New lenses, new sensors, and updated image processing software make an already impressive camera even better. Images look more natural, neutral, and balanced, with just the right amount of saturation to produce images that are striking without being overly vibrant. The Pixel 6 Pro is evenly exposed even in high-contrast environments, so light and shadow handling is still impressive.
For selfies, it has an 11.1MP (f/2.2) camera.
8. Vivo X70 Pro+ (135 points)
According to DxOMark, the Vivo X70 Pro+ occupies a spot in the top 10 list of the best mobile cameras. Most people will buy this phone for its camera capabilities, and the Vivo X70 Pro doesn’t disappoint. It consists of four lenses: a 50MP main lens with f/1.75 aperture, a Sony IMX766V sensor with Vivo gimbal stabilization 3.0, a 12MP ultra-wide-angle lens with f/2.2 aperture, a 12MP 2x telephoto lens with f/1.98 camera aperture and an 8MP 5x periscope lens with f/3.4 aperture.
The gimbal stabilization helps to move the lens (even through the rotation axis) to help minimize any unwanted jitter while shooting. When combined with the wide aperture on the main lens, it makes for bright, sharp photos. On the front, there’s a 32MP selfie camera with f/2.45 aperture. All lenses are also designed with Zeiss optics.
9. ASUS Smartphone for Snapdragon Insiders (133 points)
This smartphone of Asus for Snapdragon Insiders came in ninth in this test. The phone has a triple camera array consisting of a main 64MP camera driven by a Sony IM686 sensor, which is an excellent main camera setup with an f1.8 aperture lens. It also has a 12MP dual-pixel ultra-wide-angle camera with f 2.2 aperture and an 8MP dedicated telephoto camera with 3x optical zoom and up to 12x total zoom.
Both the telephoto and primary lenses feature 4-axis optical image stabilization. As far as phone cameras go, Snapdragon Insiders smartphones do a pretty good job here, though Qualcomm is still working on a firmware update to further improve shot quality. Especially in portrait and night mode, Qualcomm’s computational photography and artificial intelligence rendering really shine.
Its front camera is 24 MP (f/2.5).
10. Xiaomi Mi 10 Extreme Commemorative Edition (133 points)
Finally, by testing Xiaomi’s flagship Mi 10 Ultra, it scored 133 points. This high-end camera features a 48MP (f/1.9) main lens, a 48MP (f/4.1) telephoto lens, another 12MP (f/2.0) telephoto lens, and a 20MP (f/2.2) wide-angle lens Camera.
The Mi 10 Ultra has a core camera module with various sensors, flash, laser autofocus, and more. The main sensor is the OmniVision OV48C. It’s a 48MP camera with an f/1.85 aperture and a 25mm-equivalent focal length. Optical stabilization is available. Daytime shots on the Mi 10 Ultra are very good, especially in macro shots where you will notice excellent detail. When the light in the room is low, Mi 10 Ultra will try to make up for the lack of details. It manages to keep up with flagships from Apple and Samsung in terms of performance.
This Smartphone has another 48MP camera with f/4.1 brightness. Here, the focal length is equivalent to 120mm, and the optical zoom is 5x. Using the latter doesn’t come at the expense of photo saturation, but some detail is lost. The Mi 10 Ultra also features a 20MP wide-angle camera with a 1/2.8-inch diagonal. It has an f/2.2 aperture and a 128-degree viewing angle. The focal length is equivalent to 12mm.
As for the front camera, it is 20MP with f/2.3 brightness. You’ll take pretty decent selfies with it. With the Mi 10 Ultra’s front camera, you can shoot Full HD video at 30 frames per second.
