From Oppo Find X2 Pro to Xiaomi Mi 10 Pro, these are the best smartphone cameras according to DxOMark

We've listed one honourable mention that still has to pass through DxOMark's review process.

Oppo Find X2 Pro | Overall 124 Points | Photo 134 | Video 104 | This might come as somewhat of a surprise, but the best camera on a phone comes from Chinese smartphone maker Oppo. The Oppo Find X2 Pro has a triple camera setup on the back that consists of a 48-megapixel Sony IMX689 sensor with f/1.7-aperture, a 13-megapixel periscope lens with f/3.0 aperture and a 48-megapixel ultrawide lens with f/2.2 aperture. All three cameras feature PDAF, while the main and telephoto sensors boast optical image stabilisation (OIS). On the front, Oppo offers a 32-megapixel primary sensor with f/2.4 aperture. The Find X2 Pro can record videos in 4K resolution at 60fps, while you can capture 4K video in 30 fps on the ultrawide camera.

Honor V30 Pro | Overall 122 | Photo 133 | Video 100 | Huawei sub-brand Honor has been known for delivering great smartphones at reasonable prices, unlike Huawei’s top-end P and Mate devices. However, Honor has made up the ground with the V30 Pro. The Honor V30 Pro packs a 40-megapixel primary sensor with f/1.6 aperture, a 12-megapixel ultrawide with an f/2.2 aperture lens and an 8-megapixel, f/2.4 aperture telephoto sensor. Both the telephoto and main cameras feature OIS, but the one downfall is the lack of 4K video at 60fps. However, you can take 4K 30 fps video on both the main and ultra-wide cameras. The Honor V30 Pro houses a 32-megapixel, f/2.0 primary sensor and an 8-megapixel, f/2.2 ultrawide shooter on the front in the pill-shaped hole cutout. The Honor V30 Pro offers amazing camera performance that comes quite close to the Mate 30 Pro 5G at a much more reasonable price. However, the absences of Google mobile services make it a tough sell out of China.

Xiaomi Mi CC9 Pro Premium or Mi Note 10 Pro | Overall 121 | Photo 130 | Video 102 | It is quite astonishing to see that the top five spots for best-performing camera smartphones is held by all Chinese manufacturers.
