Opinions are unanimous in stating that the iPhone 12 will be the best bet for most iOS users. However, now known for the analysis of your camera by the DxOMark platform, we see that this model will not be ideal for photography lovers.
iPhone 12 is ranked 13th in the DxOMark ranking
The overall conclusions of DxOMark’s analysis of the iPhone 12 camera give a final score of 122 points. This result places the Apple smartphone in a modest 13th position in the ranking. This puts it behind some top end, Android and beyond, launched last year.
It appears that the iPhone 12 failed to surpass the results obtained by the iPhone 11 Pro Max, revealed in September 2019. Even the iPhone 12 Pro, launched at the same time as the subject of this test, achieved a more respectable score.
The iPhone 12 camera offers results with good exposure, good colors and good autofocus, whether indoors or outdoors. However, in the photographic department, the iPhone 12 has limited dynamic range, visible noise in photographs, especially at night, and a questionable zoom.
Video is the strength of the iPhone 12 camera
If iPhone 12 photography fails to outperform some 2019 models, the same does not apply to video recording. In this field, the equipment shows very good results, honoring the history built by Apple in this segment.
The dynamic range of the video on the iPhone 12 is quite wide, colors and skin tones very pleasant and a stabilization that fulfills its purpose well. On the less good side we highlight the loss of some details during the night or shy white balance
In conclusion, iPhone 12 shouldn’t be your choice if you want a great photo experience. For that, you should choose the iPhone 12 Pro Max or even a Xiaomi Mi 10 Pro will offer you better results.
However, if that is not your priority, the iPhone 12 remains an excellent option. The smartphone will continue to provide good results for most users.
