iPhone 6 & 6 Plus cameras deemed best in the world by DxOMark

Apple prides itself on equipping their latest iPhone with the best camera, and has set the bar higher and higher with every new iteration. The firm continues that tradition with both the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus which have recently made its way at the top of the DxOMark Mobile charts.

Prior to the announcement, the top spot were held by the Samsung Galaxy S5, the Sony Xperia Z3 and its predecessor, the Sony Xperia Z2, each getting an average score of 79 points.

Both the iPhone 6 and its bigger brother fared very well under DxOMark’s scrutiny and has both managed to get an average score of 82 points. The site was impressed with the iPhone 6 Plus’ ability to quickly lock in on a subject and has praised its “excellent stabilization in good lighting conditions” when shooting videos.


The iPhone 6 was also lauded for its quick autofocus regardless of the lighting condition. Moreover, DxOMark was keen to point out that the IP6 has a knack for delivering “very good overall exposure” with or without the use of its built-in flash, as well as its ability to preserve detail both indoors and outdoors.

Of course, these two iOS-powered smartphones also have its fair share of missteps. During their testing, DxOMark noticed “occasional inaccuracies” in exposure when recording videos on both devices, as well as visible artifacts using the iPhone 6 Plus.

As for the stills, the iPhone 6 display luminance noise when shooting in lowlight conditions and some ghosting and fringing.

    Where’s LG G3 in the chart?

  6. nokinoks says:

    Bakit hindi na feature dito ung Samsung at Sony nung top pa sila nung list? Unless bago lang yung benchmark tests na yan para sa mga camera, that would make sense kung ganon. Kaso kung bago lang yang benchmark na yan then why was it featured/. Is it credible?

    • Oona says:

      Yup, dxomark is used as a reference by photo enthusiasts and pro photographers to measure quality of cameras especially SLR’s. I didnt know they measure cameraphones nowadays too
