The Huawei Mate 10 Pro is one point short of matching the Google Pixel 2’s record score on camera-benchmarking site DxOMark. But its 97 rating puts the newly launched smartphone past other heavyweights Apple iPhone 8 Plus and Samsung Galaxy Note 8.

Top 13 smartphones with the best cameras as of October 21, 2017, according to DxOMark. Take note that DxOMark has retested smartphones based on its new protocol, which takes into consideration the zoom and bokeh quality, among other improvements. Other devices may not be here because they haven’t been retested yet.

It has its still-photography capabilities to thank for. According to DxOMark, that is where the Mate 10 Pro’s Leica-branded 12-megapixel color and 20-megapixel monochrome sensors on the back excel in. Its photo sub-score of 100 points places the device at the top — right up there with the Note 8.

Listed as the Huawei Mate 10 Pro’s key strengths are the following:

  • good exposures, particularly in indoor conditions;
  • great wide aperture mode, which produces a mild but attractive bokeh effect with few artifacts; and
  • outstanding auto-focus performance.

The Huawei flagship phone’s video sub-score of 91 points has dragged the Mate 10 Pro down the rankings, but that doesn’t mean the device doesn’t have the chops when it comes to taking videos. In fact, DxOMark says this year’s Mate has a fast and accurate video auto-focus, with good tracking capabilities and generally low levels of noise.

As with other benchmarking tools, though, DxOMark is not the be-all and end-all of image-quality ratings. It would be wise to see a smartphone for yourself before you decide to buy one — especially if the device you’re eyeing is expensive and you don’t always have the cash to burn.
