The scores that DxOMARK publishes throughout the year always give a lot to talk about, especially when the terminals that have always occupied the top positions, score lower than other models, something that has usually happened in recent years more than usual.
The score received by DxOMARK terminals is global, as a whole, and does not independently show which are the best features of each model, which stands out especially. Now that the year is about to end, the DxOMARK boys have made a classification with the best cameras of 2019, but independently.
This classification is not a summary of the score obtained by the different smartphones that have been launched throughout the year, but it shows us which with the best terminals in Video recording, night mode, wide angle, zoom.
Best smartphone of 2019 – Mate 30 Pro / Xiaomi Mi CC9 Pro
There has been much talk about the scores received by the terminals that lead this classification, since DXoMark published the note of both terminals, hours after officially presenting, when they were not yet available in the market.
Both the Google Pixel 4 and the iPhone 11 Pro Max took more than a month to analyze since its presentation. This time difference in being analyzed, raises the rumors about which this company bases the score in the amount of money it receives from companies, which obviously does not leave it in a good place.
As he Huawei Mate 30 Pro how Xiaomi Mi CC9 Pro Premium Edition, head this general classification, a general classification that is based largely on the quality of the photographs, not the videos, and the subsequent processing carried out by both terminals. Despite the incredible leap in quality that the iPhone 11 Pro has released this year, it has not been possible to overcome both the Mate 30 Pro of Huawei, something partly expected, as for the Xiaomi Mi CC9 Pro, a model that was not in the pools to top this list in no time.
Best video camera on a smartphone 2019 – iPhone 11 Pro
While the photographic quality of the iPhone has remained the same in recent years, video quality has increased year after year and this year again confirms that it is the best smartphone to record videos of 2019, surpassing all its rivals by the possibilities it offers us and to which very few Android terminals are approaching.
Below we show you the benefits that the iPhone 11 Pro offers us when recording videos:
- Video recording in 4K at 24, 30 and 60 fps
- Video recording in 1080p HD at 30 or 60 fps
- 720p HD video recording at 30 fps
- Extended dynamic range for video up to 60 fps
- Optical image stabilization for video (wide angle and telephoto)
- Optical zoom zoom x2, zoom optical zoom x2 and digital zoom up to x6
- Audio zoom
- Slow motion video in 1080p at 120 or 240 f / s
- Time-lapse video with stabilization
- Video stabilization with movie quality (4K, 1080p and 720p)
Best zoom is a smartphone in 2019 – Xiaomi Mi CC9 Pro
Zoom is still one of the main advantages that compact cameras offer us today in relation to smartphones. However, with the arrival of dedicated optical telephoto lenses, Smartphones are being able to reduce the distance to objects to be photographed, with a large number of pixels and digital zoom and aggressive processing.
The Xiaomi Mi CC9 Pro far exceeds its rivals with a score of 109 points, thanks to a complex zoom system that is unrivaled today, even if the Mate 30 Pro. This terminal is supported by two lenses with different focal length as well as a subsequent image processing that offers the best results currently available in the world of telephony.
Best ultra wide angle – Samsung Galaxy Note 10+ 5G
The images both night and people and landscapes have always been on the agenda in the world of telephony. However, in recent years it is increasingly common to meet with high-end models that incorporate an ultra wide angle lens. However, not all ultra wide-angle lenses offer us the same results.
When scoring the Galaxy Note 10+ 5G as the best smartphone with a wide angle lens it is based on both the effective field of vision as in image quality in general, avoiding the distortions offered by this type of lens by its nature. The ultra wide angle lens of the Galaxy Note 10+ is equivalent to 12 mm and offers excellent image quality in outdoor light conditions and in indoor lighting.
Best night mode on a smartphone 2019 – Huawei Mate 30 Pro
Thanks to the combination of state-of-the-art technologies, it is possible to offer on a smartphone the possibility of taking captures with very little ambient light, a section where the Huawei Mate 30 Pro is the undisputed king, beating Pixel 4 and its new night photography mode with long exposures.
Huawei relies on a 1 / 1.7 ″ Quad-Bayer sensor and a complex system which groups a large number of captures with different exposures of the same image and other tricks to further improve the chances of capturing light from the device.
The Mate 30 Pro from Huawei incorporates a dedicated night mode, like the Google Pixel 4, which works perfectly in landscape scenes, with a reduced exposure and a noise (won from the photo) quite controlled, so the subsequent processing is quite powerful.
What is the best smartphone of 2019?
DXoMark says that in general terms both the Mate 30 Pro from Huawei and the Xiaomi Mi CC0 Pro are the best in the market. However, each of these terminals offers us different problems. On the one hand, we find that el Mate 30 Pro hits the market without Google applications, although at the moment it seems that they can be installed (we do not know if it will always be possible or Google will turn off the tap at some point).
On the other hand we find the Xiaomi Mi CC9 Pro, a cheaper terminal than the Mate 30 Pro, which It is not officially available in many countries, which forces users to buy it directly in Asian stores, and to which we subsequently have to add the cost of customs in addition to having to deal with Chinese to be able to change the language of the terminal.
