Breakdown of scores

Independent benchmark DxOMark has just released its review of the Samsung Galaxy Note20 Ultra 5G's cameras and has given it a total score of 121. Broken down, the Galaxy Note20 Ultra 5G scored 130 in Photo and 101 in video. This is a huge surprise because the Galaxy S20 Ultra 5G scored 122, 132, and 102. 

To recap, the Note20 Ultra 5G has a front-facing 10MP f/2.2 selfie camera with dual-pixel AF while at the back is a 108MP f/1.8 main camera with PDAF, OIS, and Laser AF, 12MP f/2.2 120-degree ultra-wide-angle camera, 12MP f/3.0 5x optical zoom periscope camera with 50X Space Zoom, OIS, PDAF, and an LED flash.

The current top seat goes to the Xiaomi Mi 10 Ultra with a total score of 130 with a score of 142 in photo and 106 for video.

Samsung dropped the time-of-flight sensor found on the S20 Ultra and tweaked the telephoto-camera on the Note20 Ultra 5G. The main 108MP 1/1.33 sensor with f/1.9 aperture, laser AF, PDAF, and OIS and the 12MP f/12.2 ultra-wide camera remain the same from the S20 Ultra.

Samsung changed the 48MP Quad-Bayer sensor telephoto camera on the S20 Ultra to the 12MP 120mm periscope style lens with a 5x optical zoom on the Note20 Ultra. This may have been the cause of the slightly underwhelming telephoto performance of the Note20 Ultra 5G.

DxOMark says that with a score of 121, the Samsung Galaxy Note20 Ultra 5G is a very capable device for smartphone photography and has made it to its top 10 in the ranking. 

The Mi 10 Ultra and Huawei P40 Pro remains at the top two spots.

DxOMark says that the 130 score for Photo reveals that the Note20 Ultra 5G can take great pictures but not as good as the higher scoring phones that are nearing the 140 score barrier. 

The images the Note20 Ultra 5G produces have near top-level exposure, contrast, and color accuracy with ONLY decent dynamic range. This means that the Note20 Ultra 5G's images have slightly more clipped highlights than the competition. The Mi 10 Ultra can recover highlights better.

In low light, the S20 Ultra provides brighter target exposure with more detail in the Shadows compared to both the Note20 Ultra 5G and Mi 10 Ultra.

What the Note20 Ultra 5G did improve significantly is in Autofocus Performance. It is now excellent with a near-perfect score in autofocus. The only concern was minor focus breathing that wasn't visible when shooting natural shooting scenarios.

In terms of Zoom performance, the Note20 Ultra 5G improved significantly especially at the longest end of 120mm.

In conclusion, DxOMark praises the Note20 Ultra 5G's vivid colors, accurate target exposure, wide dynamic range, good detail, and fast AutoFocus in both photo and video but it struggled with noise control in low light, strong fusion artifacts in zoom shots, in photo and video.
