A published rating of selfie cameras in smartphones

DxOMark finally debuts selfie camera testing suite

The first ever performance list for front-facing cameras shows that Google Pixel 3 and Samsung Galaxy Note 9 scored 92 points while Xiaomi Mi MIX 3 (84 points), iPhone XS Max (82 points), and Samsung Galaxy S9 Plus (81 points) came third, fourth and fifth respectively. Today DxOMark have announced their new DxOMark Selfie test protocol for smartphone front cameras and have ranked some of the phones already.

DxOMark, with the help of its newly-launched DxOMark Selfie tool, has started testing the selfie cameras of smartphones, with the test results out for the first 12 smartphones in all the price segments.

Such a development can also be considered as a coming of age of the selfie camera considering that the front cam usually isn't accorded the same importance as say the rear cam.

With the introduction of the new Selfie category, DxOMark has also updated the way it presents the smartphone camera rankings. People often base a lot of their choices around the quality of the front camera that ends up being offered to you when you decide to purchase a particular phone.

DxOMark did both objective and subjective tests in controlled conditions and even developed a dummy with realistic skin tones for consistent, repeatable scores. DxOMark tested each handset from three distances - 30 cm, which should fill the frame, 55 cm, and 120 cm, an average distance when a photo is captured with a selfie stick.

So, which phones have the best selfie cameras? The Pixel 3 took better quality still images, according to DxO, while the Note 9 produced better selfie videos. DxO cited the Note 9's exposure and color results, and notes that Samsung's phone is a little better at handling exposures for faces.

When it comes to videos from the front camera, Note 9 takes an edge due to a superior stabilization than the Google Pixel 3. The Samsung (Note 9) is a little better at exposing for faces and applies a little less contrast to faces, making for a slightly more natural look.
