Disruptive technologies in mobile imaging: Taking smartphone cameras to the next level


We always look closely to the professionalism of DxO Mark: The trusted industry standard for camera and lens image quality and today they have published a comprehensive overview of smartphone camera technologies and their impact on image quality measurements from 2012 to today. In their article, they look at the evolution of both Photo and Video scores by comparing one of the first high-end devices they tested, the Nokia 808 PureView, to today’s flagship phones, such as the Google Pixel 2, the iPhone X, and the Samsung Galaxy Note 8.
