Google Pixel 3, Samsung Galaxy Note 9 top selfie-quality rankings

Google Pixel 3, Samsung Galaxy Note 9 top selfie-quality rankings

The models that are now leading on the selfie camera scale of DxOMark are the Google Pixel 3 and Samsung Galaxy Note 9 with overall scores of 92.

Now, for the very first time (albeit in the same fashion as so many times before), renowned camera benchmark testers from DxOMark have shared the results of their inaugural Selfie Scores test, an assessment which sought to gauge the quality and performance of a dozen modern smartphones' front-facing camera systems.

While the outlet has traditionally only reviewed smartphone rear cameras, it has now published reviews for the front-facing sensors offered by a number of devices.

Finally DxOMark has started testing the selfie camera of smartphones. Galaxy S8 iPhone X also made the list of 10 best camera for selfie.

Again, you can't go wrong with any smartphone camera these days, and the exciting thing is that mobile camera quality continues to improve drastically with each passing year.

The duchess later described her early experiences with her rescue dog Guy, who had been traumatised by earlier experiences. Meghan was first spotted wearing the sentimental piece on the first day of the royal tour of Australia in October.

The DxOMark selfie test takes into consideration several factors such as skin tones, details, colour accuracy, sharpness and other parameters. The smartphone that scores high with the selfie camera need not necessarily fare equally impressively with the main camera output.

The company has tested selfie cameras by analyzing more than 1,500 photos and more than 2 hours of video.

So Which Phones Are The Best In Capturing Selfies?

As we highlighted just a few days ago, for example, Google's Pixel phones are best-in-class when it comes to taking photos in low-light environments. The Pixel 3 scored 99 points in the still image test and 83 points in the video test.

As of January 2019, the Pixel 3 and the Galaxy Note 9 turned out to be the best phones for capturing self-portrait images and videos.

The two leaders are followed by the Xiaomi Mi Mix 3 (84), Apple's iPhone XS Max (82) and the Samsung Galaxy S9 Plus (81). The Samsung (Note 9) is a little better at exposing for faces and applies a little less contrast to faces, making for a slightly more natural look.
