The Apple iPhone 12 Pro may be the best and most powerful iPhone model to date, but there is an Android phone that goes side by side, at least in the selfie quality evaluated by DxOMark. Both the iPhone 12 Pro and the Asus Zenfone 6 have tied for the same place, scoring 98 points for how good they can click selfies. The iPhone 12 Pro has a 12MP camera for selfies, while the Zenfone 6 uses the motorized flip cameras that house dual 48MP and 13MP sensors.
According to DxOMark, the iPhone 12 Pro Max scored 101 points and 93 points for the photo and video categories, respectively, but the overall score for the front camera is 98. This is the same as the Asus Zenfone 6 scored for its camera. Since the Asus Zenfone 6 uses the same set of cameras for both sides, this score is valid for both and less than what the rear cameras of the iPhone 12 Pro have obtained in DxOMark.
In their review, DxOMark has noted that photos taken with the 12MP camera on the iPhone 12 Pro have accurate exposure on faces while skin tone is on point, thanks to the advanced technology the iPhone is now equipped with. sensor. Images that are clicked in bright to normal indoor lighting conditions are highly detailed where every element of the subject is widely visible. There is controlled noise in these photos as long as the lighting conditions are favorable.
Additionally, the iPhone 12 Pro’s camera can produce accurate depth in portrait mode, thanks to the additional sensor that guides the camera to trace the contours of the subject. But despite this level of bokeh, there is some background noise. The white balance and high dynamic range of these photos occasionally deviate from the optimal path, but the results are impressive. Exposure suffers when using a flashlight. But the biggest drawback is the fixed focus that the camera comes with, allowing blur to reach some distant subjects.
DxOMark has noted that the videos on the iPhone 12 Pro retain an accurate white balance and wide dynamic range. But at times, the camera notices and retains some residual motion effects, artifacts when moving, along with some level of noise in low light conditions.
The iPhone 12 Pro is one of the most advanced phones out there and its selfie camera is way better than most premium flagships, but it does tie in with the Asus Zenfone 6 when it comes to DxOMark ratings. This, in the real world, means that the iPhone 12 Pro can click through some really cool photos that you will love despite having some nominal demands for the price you pay. The iPhone 12 Pro starts at Rs 1,19,900 in India.
