HTC 10’s new UltraPixel camera scores as high as the Galaxy S7 edge on DxOMark


HTC claims to have upped its game with the new 10. If you’re curious about its camera performance, imaging authority DxoMark has finally given it its stamp of approval.

With a total score of 88 points, the HTC 10 shares the same podium with the current champion, the Galaxy S7 edge.

Following HTC’s tradition of going for larger pixels, the 10 uses a 12MP 1/2.3″ sensor with 1.55 micron pixels. According to DxoMark’s review, the HTC 10 was outstanding for both stills and videos. For photos, the 10 offers great details and fast auto focus while keeping noise down low in low light conditions.

For capturing videos, the HTC 10 is capable of shooting 4K (2160p) videos in 30fps. Focus while recording is fast and accurate in most cases except for panning situations. Their review for the HTC 10 is pretty brief compared to the Galaxy S7 edge and for video, it scored an overall sub-score of 86 points. You can see the breakdown of HTC 10’s DxOMark versus the Galaxy S7 edge below.
