According to the firm, the Galaxy Z Fold 4’s camera quality is not too good to take it to the top or runner-up in the ranking chart. However, it brings significant upgrades over its predecessor Galaxy Z Fold 3 with improved video performance when it comes to dynamic range and video noise.

DXOMARK pointed out that the Galaxy Z Fold 4’s price is very high, and it doesn’t offer the best camera experience as its pricing. The Fold 4 owners shouldn’t care about the camera scores and DXOMARK rankings as it had always been biased and leaning toward Chinese phones.
