DxOMark has always been a form of benchmark for phone makers to gauge the camera performance of their mobile devices, and OnePlus is no exception. After some teasing from the young Chinese company, we finally know the OnePlus 5‘s DxOMark score: it’s rated higher than the iPhone 7, and it performs similarly to the Huawei P10.
With an overall score of 87, the OnePlus 5 beats the iPhone 7’s score of 86 just slightly. More interestingly, the OnePlus 5 is rated similarly to the P10, Samsung Galaxy S6 edge, as well as the Sony Xperia XZ; all of which received a score of 87 too.
According to DxOMark, the OnePlus 5 offers accurate white balance regardless of lighting conditions, “fast and smooth” autofocus performance, good deal preservation, and vivid colour reproduction. However, the site also note that the OnePlus 5 occasionally has ghosting effect in outdoor conditions, along with some lost of fine details in low light conditions.
Video performance of the OnePlus 5, on the other hand, is pretty good too. Stabilisation isn’t an issue – despite the lack of optical image stabilisation – autofocus is still fast and accurate, and target exposure is good too.
The OnePlus 5 may not have a class-leading camera – in DxOMark’s rating, anyway – but it’s certainly a capable shooter. If you’d like to check out DxOMark’s full review of the OnePlus 5’s camera performance, you can do so here.
