Samsung Galaxy S22 Ultra is unquestionably the best camera smartphone available worldwide. Meanwhile, DXOMARK believes just the opposite that US consumers would not admit that the Apple iPhone 14 Pro is the best camera phone in the country.
According to DXOMARK camera test, the iPhone 14 Pro has some problems such as occasional highlight clipping in skies, luminance noise in indoor photos, occasional white balance casts on photos taken in mixed lighting and ringing around subjects in photos and videos.
On the other hand, the Galaxy S22 Ultra (Snapdragon) got thumbs up by DXOMARK for various segments of the camera and photography functionality such as accurate white balance and good detail, good exposure and wide dynamic range, nice color and good exposure in flash-off night shots.
Apart from this, DXOMARK reviewers praised the Galaxy S22 Ultra for its accurate subject isolation and blur gradient in bokeh mode, accurate exposure and wide dynamic range in bright light and indoor video and nice color and skin tones in video.
Not that all, the Samsung’s camera beast is capable of accurate face tracking in video and effective video stabilization when walking while recording. But still, the review platform believes that the iPhone 14 Pro is the best camera phone available in the United States with 146 points on the table.
If we talk about the DXOMARK’s Galaxy S22 Ultra review, it got just 135 points and is located on the 4th spot of best camera phones available in the US. The new iPhone 14 Pro is on top, while the iPhone 13 Pro and iPhone 13 Pro Max are listed in 2nd and 3rd place, respectively.
