  1. I am watching this video in 2021 where smartphones are crossing 140 plus scores. And I suppose pixel 6 lro will be crossing 150 plus score this year.๐Ÿ˜‚ But Pixel is still the current best in taking photos.

  2. Watching this after dexomark giving S21 a lower score than its predecessor the s20. Simply laughable.

  3. me personally, i like cameras that represent the reality the best. i don't like cameras that change up colour and such things

  4. The score weight distribution is not that subjective. I've seen a similar one in a presentation by ISF about what features of an image have the greatest impact on an perceived quality. It was something like this: Dynamic Range > Color Saturation > Color Accuracy > Resolution. This means that, eg., if a 48MPx image has a poor color accuracy, it will look worse than a 8MPx color accurate image, and to me, it makes perfect sense.

  5. I gave up when DXO Mark in high end smartphones better than full frame
    cameras. If that's the case why people just bother using expensive larger
    cmos sensor camers for sports, concerts etc.

  6. 2:05 Dxomark rating formula is a commercial secret, so nobody can double check their numbers. How can you get total of 98 points when each category clearly got less than 98? Here is the truth: Whoever paid most gets the highest score.

  7. It is still more reliable than the score you came up with Pocophone camera by comparing all flagship mobiles with it. You took a natural situation which changes constantly and then picked up all mobiles randomly to take pictures without tripod and decided to boost Pocophone camera marketing which was really funny. In fact, you chose only one situation to take pictures which was even more funny. Don't talk about DXO after that. Lol

  8. Lol Huawei bought the testing equipment to make their phone cameras specifically for the test. So biased ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚

  9. You tell us whom to trust whom to not because tech videos by you and other tech youtubers were taken as grant on the basis of your videos.we people make our phone buying decision on depending upon you people so please be biased .

  10. I think its enough to use one score. If wanna know more about a camera, you could scroll down yourself, i think

  11. So pixel 3 scored 101, less than any other flagship, idgaf Google's software is so far ahead than others hardware.
