It is quite common these days to see manufacturers post up DxOMark image test results when they are launching their new devices. The same case applies to HTC who has just unveiled its new flagship, the U12+ earlier this week.
As it turns out, the image lab is quite satisfied with the image and video output that U12+ is able to deliver. In fact, DxOMark has awarded the phone with 103 overall points which means that U12+ is ranked higher that Huawei P20 and Apple iPhone X on the lab’s chart although still few points behind the current leader of the chart, Huawei P20 Pro.
According to the detailed report, DxOMark pointed out that the U12+ has a rather speedy and accurate autofocus capability when it comes to still photos. At the same time, the phone also able to deliver good results in many other important areas including color reproduction, white balance, exposure, detail and texture preservation, wide dynamic range, and bokeh simulation.
Many of these transcend to U12+ video recording capability as well in addition to having low levels of noise. Of course, the camera is not 100% perfect as DxOMark also listed some of the shortcomings that it encountered on U12+ such as artifacts in HDR images, noise within low-light images, white balance issues during indoor video recording, overexpose problem in HDR video scenes and loss of details in certain conditions.
As interesting as this report might be, nothing beats checking out the phone yourself. Fret not though as the wait for U12+ will not be long anyway since the phone will be released in Malaysia by the end of June.
