For those looking for the best smartphone camera or perhaps even better the best smartphone camera, there seems to be a new king, Xiaomi Mi 11 Ultra .
The experts of DxOMark , with whom from time to time we do not find ourselves 100% in agreement, in this case they have expressed a rather clear opinion, from their point of view there is no better product than the most powerful launched by Xiaomi a few days ago .
In fact, they assigned a score of 143 to the new Xiaomi smartphone, which exceeds by four points the evaluation that Huawei mate 40 Pro + had been taking for months now, the best device on the market for photographic shots.
The first parameter that hit the DxOMark experts is that of the sensor: 1 / 1.12 ″ is a much better measure than that presented by the predecessor of this phone, even matching the offer of some semi-professional compact cameras such as Sony RX.
Apparently the combination of this sensor with the processing capacity of the image processor allows you to take superlative HDR shots, with a separation of the different levels of clear depth without the need for special artifice.
Best smartphone camera
Being the best camera smartphone also means having a high-precision TOF depth sensor, which results in practically perfect bokeh portraits.
To all these details, already very interesting, is also added the ability to shoot videos in 8K at 24 frames per second or 4K 60 frames per second.
The overall result of the best smartphone camera is obtained with 148 points for photos, 117 for videos and 100 points for zoom.
The different segments compete with a different weighting which is why the final result is not the exact average of the three ratings, but something slightly different.
The new Xiaomi, while recording the best final result, fails to beat Mate 40 Pro in all details: the measurement and contrast control, for example, is better in Huawei’s smartphone.
In autofocus, it is second to the iPhone 12 Pro Max , what Mi 11 Ultra excels in are the bokeh shots and the wide angle.
The white balance and the color calibration are considered practically perfect, as is the very high quality of the video footage.
From today, therefore, the best smartphone camera is undoubtedly Xiaomi Mi Ultra, it remains to be seen if and when it will also arrive on our market.
While waiting to find out, we continue to profess all our love for Xiaomi Mi 11 5G , which at the current price of 700 € is the best purchase among the top of the range available.
