Strong camera rating, but not the best

Samsung's top-of-the-line smartphone got an impressive Photo score of 132 points and a Video score of 102 points for an average camera score of 122 points. Galaxy S20 Ultra's average score is enough several top 2019 camera phones such as the Huawei Mate 30 Pro and Xiaomi Mi CC9 Pro Premium with 121 points.

To recall, the Samsung high-end phone is one of the few with a 108MP primary camera. It is equipped with a 108MP f/1.8 shooter with Dual Pixel and OIS paired with a 12MP f/2.2 120-degree ultra-wide-angle camera, 48MP f/3.5 w/ 10x Hybrid Optic Zoom and OIS, 3D ToF camera, and dual-tone LED flash.

However, the camera rating of the Galaxy S20 Ultra at DxOMark is lower than most early 2020 flagships. It failed to even best the Huawei Mate 30 Pro 5G last tear with an average score of 123 points.

The Xiaomi Mi 10 Pro, OPPO Find X2 Pro, and HONOR 30 Pro+, and Huawei P40 Pro all got a higher score as well.

DxO has yet to reveal the selfie camera rating of the device though. For audio, it got a decent score of 69 points.

DxOMark noted that it delivered nice colors, wide dynamic range, well-controlled noise, excellent exposure and color in ultra-wide shots, and good exposure and high detail using flash. However, it has a slow focus in low light. The videos have a limited dynamic range in high-contrast conditions as well.

Consistently good exposure, color, and detail make the Samsung Galaxy S20 Ultra a good all-rounder for smartphone photography. Its ultra-wide camera and bokeh effects in Portrait mode are particularly impressive; and with good video performance in 4K mode, together with a host of other resolution and slow-motion recording settings, there are plenty of possibilities for capturing moving images, too.

Issues with close-range zoom, slow autofocus in low light, and slightly underwhelming night shots prevented the S20 Ultra from challenging the best devices at the top of our database, however. Given the device’s impressive tech specs, not to mention its high price tag, Samsung enthusiasts may find that a little disappointing. So while it’s true that the S20 Ultra is very capable in many shooting environments, it doesn’t set a new standard for smartphone image quality.

What do you guys think? Do you agree with DxOMark?
