  • iPhone 11 has been re-tested by DxOMark.
  • DxOMark has given it an updated rating of 119 points.
  • The new rating reflects the improvements in the camera of the phone.

DxOMark is one of the more trusted names when it comes to testing smartphone cameras. The website has been at it for years now, testing phones for their camera performance when they launch. In fact, they even go as far as testing a few phones a little late in their product life cycle to see how software updates have improved their picture-taking abilities.

The latest in the list of these phones is the iPhone 11 which has been tested again in line with DxOMark's new testing protocols to see if the phone's camera performance has improved over time. As it turns out, it has.

Restesting the iPhone 11 recently re-tested, DxOMark has found that the phone has aged well with the iPhone 11's overall camera score going up significantly from its previous 109 to 119 points. This has meant that the phone has now gone ahead of some of 2020's flagships like the Samsung Samsung Galaxy S20+ and the OnePlus 8 Pro in terms of the score given by the website.

While the iPhone 11 was always a good camera phone, this new update has ensured that it has become even better, and in the process capable of taking on some of the phones that were launched this year.

"The iPhone 11 has increased its overall score to 119 after testing under our new protocol and in many respects continues to offer excellent smartphone photography capabilities. Photos from the main camera display accurate exposure with wide dynamic range in most tested conditions, delivering very similar overall quality to the larger iPhone 11 Pro Max."

The new results show that the iPhone 11 improves on key metrics and now offers excellent photo and video quality. DxOMark says the phone offers accurate exposure,very good color accuracy, and packs in rich detail in every shot -- even indoors. The review of the device also shows that the phone comes with an ultra-wide camera performance that is also among the best in the industry. Although, the website still thinks the iPhone 11 is not great at zooming into objects to click pictures as it does not house a standalone telephoto lens. Additionally, it also points out a few issues including ringing artifacts and overexposed flash portraits at night while clicking specific shots from the phone.

However, DxOMark appears to be more than happy with the video quality of the phone, with the iPhone 11 getting a video score on the ranking. The website also points out that the phone has a good and effective stablisation mechanism.
