Review after review after compared photos tells the tale. Pixel 4 is a good camera phone. iPhone 11 Pro is better in some respects and may improve more with the upcoming Deepfusion feature. So, what’s wrong?
Photos from Pixel 4, Samsung Galaxy Note 10, and iPhone 11 Pro are all over the interwebs these days, and the quality of photos from each has become so good they compete with mid-range DSLR cameras to the point where even experienced photographers (not necessarily professionals) cannot tell which photo came from which camera.
DXOMARK is a site that tests smartphones through some unknown and seemingly arbitrary criteria, but Apple has always fared well until recently. Tops– as of today– is the Huawei Mate 30 Pro with 121 total points. By contrast, the most recent iPhone is iPhone XS Max with 106 points at #13.
Google’s Pixel 4 made the Top 10 ranks at #9 with 112 points. Pixel 4 has been available only to early adopters and reviewers while iPhone 11 Pro has been out over a month.
Where is the iPhone 11 Pro review? Something smells fishy.
DXOMARK also does audio reviews and the Huawei Mate X speakers came in on top with a score of 75. Apple’s iPhone XS Max– from last year– is close behind at 74, while iPhone 11 Pro Max is 71, well ahead of other tested models.
How is it that DXOMARK can test both Google and Samsung smartphones before they are released, but not test an iPhone 11 Pro? How is it that Google’s Pixel 4 did not receive an audio test?
So does speculation.
Did DXOMARK already review iPhone 11 Pro and the results were so bad– based upon some kind of squirrely criteria– that they went to Apple to see what was wrong? Or, were the results so good, so much higher than expected, they went to Apple to see what was right?
Whatever it is, something smells fishy.
