Samsung Galaxy S9 takes best screen and camera quality crown

Samsung Galaxy S9 takes best screen and camera quality crown

However, the camera has a scope for improvement as the report also claimed that "bright-light images show purple fringing on high-contrast edges and pretty noticeable ringing halos" and that there are occasional exposure instabilities. The total score is the average of the points garnered in the still camera and video performance tests but it is in the still camera aspect where the Samsung flagship excelled.

The Samsung Galaxy S9 Plus photo and video capabilities have been awarded a score of 99 by DxOMark, making it the best smartphone camera the website has reviewed.

It has a similar dual-camera setup as is found in the Galaxy Note 8, but it has a very big new trick up its sleeve, a variable-aperture lens on the main camera.

In any event, Samsung was able to beat out the Google Pixel 2 XL for the top spot, something it was not able to do a year earlier with its Galaxy S8+ vs. the original Pixel XL. The smaller Galaxy S9 uses the same primary camera as the S9+ but misses out on the secondary lens that helps the device get bokeh effect that requires a telephoto lens.

Feel free to tell us what you think about the Samsung Galaxy S9's score in the DxOMark's rating! This means that a single lens can switch between f/2.4 aperture for taking in details during optimum lighting conditions, and a low f/1.5 aperture. According to the camera tests done by DxOMark, the Samsung flagship received an industry best of 104 in photo tests. This feature allows the S9 to shoot slow motion videos at 960 frames per second at up to 720p resolution.

Samsung however says that it offers consumers two other biometric authentication options in the Galaxy S9 i.e. a fingerprint reader on the back, as well as the passcodes. The video score is 91, which DxOMark rates as among the best. Both models are set to launch worldwide on March 16.
