In the iPhone 14 Pro camera testing conducted by DxOMark, Apple’s flagship model achieves outstanding results. With an overall camera score of 146, you earn second place in the DxOMark global camera ranking (just one point behind the Honor Magic 4 Ultimate). In addition to ranking second overall, DxOMark also recognized the iPhone 14 Pro for the best selfie camera performance in photos and video with a score of 145 points.
DxOMark highlights the iPhone’s top score in its new „Friends and Family“ usage category thanks to its accuracy in capturing skin tones, its consistently fast zero-shutter prevention technology, its ability to reduce motion blur, and its contrast rendition of persons. The site also provides that the iPhone 14 Pro’s natural-looking bokeh effect from its portrait mode is more like DSLR quality.
iPhone remains #1 in video recording performance with its new phone model. It demonstrates improved picture smoothness; stabilization is also excellent, HDR recording offers high contrast, and autofocus tracking is reliable and accurate. Apple’s implementation of a Quad-Bayer image sensor gives high image quality and performance. Experts also praise the iPhone’s accuracy of the preview image in the viewfinder compared to the final processed image.
The only noticed areas for possible improvement are the presence of noise and a slight loss of detail when taking pictures indoors. There is also a loss of detail when taking 3X photos.
Now to DxOMark’s selfie camera findings. With a selfie score of 145, the iPhone 14 Pro scores just one point above the Huawei P50 Pro. The iPhone 14 Pro’s newly added autofocus capability and faster aperture appear to be a higher score. Selfie video is also highly rated with great exposure, color and stabilization with a top score of 154 points.
Still images with the front camera deliver great dynamic range, exposure and bokeh. Excellent detail, accurate skin tones and simulated bokeh in portrait mode are also noted.
Weaknesses provided for the iPhone 14 Pro’s selfie camera are noticeable noise in photos and videos in most conditions, and altered and less accurate skin tones in more challenging lighting conditions, such as when the scene is backlit or in low light light.
