iPhone 15 Pro Max DXOMARK Camera Ranking
DXOMARK, the renowned camera review organization, recently unveiled the camera score for the iPhone 15 Pro Max, and it’s turning heads in the world of smartphone photography. With a total score of 154 points, the iPhone 15 Pro Max secured a second-place ranking in DXOMARK’s global image ranking, surpassing rivals like the OPPO Find X6 Pro and the Honor Magic5 Pro.
The iPhone 15 Pro Max’s standout feature is its prowess in portrait photography. It excels at capturing fine details and delivers accurate skin tones and facial exposure across various lighting conditions. The updated and enhanced HDR imaging not only spotlights the subject but also enhances the overall contrast in the image, adding to its appeal.
One of the notable upgrades in the iPhone 15 Pro Max is the introduction of a periscope telephoto lens, enabling up to 5x optical zoom and significantly improving its ability to capture details. This improvement puts it ahead of its predecessor in terms of zoom capabilities.
In the realm of video, the iPhone 15 Pro Max shines brightly. DXOMARK tested the device at 4K resolution, 60fps frame rate, and with Dolby Vision activated settings, and it delivered the best video performance seen to date. With its wide dynamic range, excellent exposure stability, natural color rendering, precise autofocus, and top-notch anti-shake stability, the iPhone 15 Pro Max scored the highest in the video sub-category, surpassing its predecessor.
However, it’s not all smooth sailing for the iPhone 15 Pro Max. Some shortcomings were noted in the iPhone 15 Pro Max DXOMARK’s review. The device’s image performance can be inconsistent across different zoom ranges, and in low-light conditions, photos may exhibit a grainy texture, occasionally accompanied by flare, ghosting, and aliasing issues.
While the iPhone 15 Pro Max showcases impressive camera capabilities and secures a solid position in the DXOMARK rankings, it still falls short of dethroning the Huawei P60 Pro, which holds the top spot with an impressive score of 156 points. The competition in the smartphone camera world remains fierce, with each new release pushing the boundaries of what’s possible in mobile photography.
