Mobile Photography – OnePlus 6: The Alternative Flagship – SmartPhone Review – DxOMark with Kevin Carter

Share

Some of you may know, many of you do not know, my husband Kevin Carter is a photographic technical expert and journalist. He works at an extremely high level, imparting his knowledge and never compromising his journalistic integrity.

As well as that, he’s an editor for DxOMark and he’s just completed his latest review which includes an in-depth analysis of the OnePlus 6 smartphone camera. Its resulted in an overall score of 96 points. The OnePlus 6 was released in late May and it is the latest dual camera-equipped smartphone from Chinese brand OnePlus. It is a premium model featuring a large 6.28-in AMOLED edge-to-edge display and powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 chipset.

The OnePlus 6’s main camera has a 16MP 1/2.6”-type sensor that is combined with a stabilised f/1.7 lens. The secondary camera is used for applying depth-of-field effects and an improved digital zoom. While it has a slightly higher-resolution 20MP sensor, it has the same f/1.7-aperture lens as the main camera (but not stabilisation).

With a total Photo score of 100 points, the OnePlus 6 achieves one of the better scores for still images in DxOMark’s testing to date. The overall Photo score is calculated from sub-scores in tests that examine different aspects of its performance under different lighting conditions.

If that’s piqued your interest, you can read his full report here.
