- Apple's iPhone 12 Pro has been reviewed by DxOMark.
- The iPhone 12 Pro has received a better rating than iPhone 11 Pro.
- It has scored a total of 128 points in the test.
Apple recently launched the iPhone 12 series of phones. Populated by four new phones -- iPhone 12 mini, iPhone 12, iPhone 12 Pro and iPhone 12 Pro Max -- this new series has been received quite well since its launch. This is because all of the devices are quite powerful as they hide the A14 Bionic chipset under the hood, and also impress in cameras and other areas of performance.
While the phones have impressed in general, they have also emerged as solid upgrades over their predecessors. This is something we've also seen in the latest iPhone 12 Pro camera review by DxOMark which has revealed that the new model offers improvements over last year's iPhone 11 Pro just where it was needed resulting in a 4 point improvement over the 11 Pro.
In the review, the iPhone 12 Pro scored an overall 128 points, putting it in fourth place in the publication's overall rankings and on par with Xiaomi's Mi 10 Pro, but falling a point behind Huawei's P40 Pro.
As per the review, the iPhone 12 Pro performed showed "consistent autofocus performance, accurate colors and detail preservation". It also did well in indoor shots, with the phone capturing a good amount of detail and exposure also good.
It also crucially improves in nigh-time shots which despite packing some noise cmae out really good in their review. The review, however, claims the dynamic range was not that impressive and the telephoto sensor also did not do too well with more demanding tasks when zooming further away. Ultra wide-angle performance was good but not as good as some of the other flagships.
As per the camera benchmarking website, video recording is good, with the camera proving to be good at autofocus, exposure and color accuracy. Stabilization also appears to be a strong point of the device, as well as capturing of plenty of detail even in dim lighting conditions. The wide dynamic range was another strong point.
To remind readers, the iPhone 12 Pro is powered by the same A14 Bionic chipset that's seen on the other iPhone 12 phones launched this year. However, it differs a little in terms of camera hardware from the iPhone 12 and iPhone 12 mini. This is because it uses three 12-megapixel sensors -- instead of two on the two phones mentioned above. All three sensors output 12-megapixel shots.
The primary lens offers F/1.6 aperture and OIS. It's sat next to an ultrawide lens with F/2.4 aperture and a 52mm telephoto module with F/2.0 aperture and OIS. There's also a LiDAR sensor that is used for depth sensing.
