DxOMark, an independent entity that evaluates cameras and other aspects of smartphones, has finally published its review on the camera of the Samsung Galaxy S21 Ultra. Its conclusions are far from meeting the expectations formed around this top of the range.
The new top of the range from South Korea earned a final score of 121 points. This value places the equipment in 17th place in the DxOMark hierarchy, quite far from the desired top places.
Samsung Galaxy S21 Ultra failed to overcome the results of the Galaxy S20 Ultra
More difficult for Samsung will be to assimilate that the Samsung Galaxy S21 Ultra did not even manage to surpass last year’s model, the Galaxy S20 Ultra. In other words, South Korean technology has taken a step back with regard to the photographic quality of its top of the range.
The final result obtained by the Samsung Galaxy S21 Ultra was compromised by its performance in terms of zoom (76) and video (98). These two parameters were lower than what had been registered by its predecessor, whereas the photograph obtained the same values (128).
The two lenses dedicated to the zoom did not meet the expectations created, with DxOMark pointing out flaws in the preserved detail. The textures do not look natural and that point was clearly penalizing for the new top of the range Samsung.
The video will probably be the most embarrassing point for the Samsung Galaxy S21 Ultra. The 98 points collected put it alongside the Google Pixel 4a, a device that costs about a third of the model featured in this review.
Still, DxOMark has not shied away from highlighting the camera’s autofocus qualities and dynamic range. The 60fps are another point favorable to the Samsung Galaxy S21 Ultra and that prevents the results from being even smaller.
In short, the Samsung Galaxy S21 Ultra presents itself as a disappointment, taking into account the conclusions presented by DxOMark. Despite being a good smartphone for photography, it is not at the level of the models premium of the market, many of them launched in 2020.
