First of all, you should note that In the DxoMark ranking, the bigger the number, the better it is considered. The website has given Apple iPhone 11 Pro Max a score of 124 in still photography and 102 in videos. This nets to a score of 117, which falls behind the likes of Huawei and Xiaomi. Both Huawei Mate 30 Pro and Xiaomi’s recent Mi CC9 Pro alias Mi Note 10 has tied at a score of 124.

Still and all, the iPhone shares the still photo score with the Samsung Galaxy Note 10+ and surpasses several other biggies like Google Pixel 4, Samsung Galaxy S10, and the Huawei P30 Pro.

In the stills section, the iPhone 11 Pro Max is praised for a wide dynamic range, coupled with good exposure, detailed output, color reproduction, along with dependable autofocus and zooming mechanism. On the downside, their tests reveal clipping of highlights, along with noise and a yellow tint under low warm lighting.

Now let’s move to videography, which is an area where Apple’s praised in the industry through and through. Here, DxoMark commends the dynamic range, detailing, color accuracy and video stabilization. At the same time, it does point out the white balance woes and issues in autofocus stepping as well as aliasing.

Since DxoMark published their review, they have garnered some backlash from Twitterati and veterans in the tech circle like Rene Ritchie from iMore and David Ruddock of Androidpolice. Anyhow, it’s good that competition is picking up and after all, it benefits the end consumer with better innovation and quality camera phones.
