The Samsung Galaxy Note 9 camera has been tested by DXOMark. The device has received some positive reviews on the design level and of course the hardware is fantastic. The DxOMark review focuses on the performance of the camera of this top-of-the-range model and is impressive. The Galaxy Note 9 achieved an impressive overall score in the DxOMark of 103 points, which at the test put him in second place overall with the HTC U12 +. The P20 Pro with Huawei’s triple camera still holds the top spot as the best camera smartphone.
However, there are some software updates. Samsung now offers AI-based scene detection, to automatically choose the best settings for each scene. Another interesting addition is the defect detection feature that will alert you if your photo is poor quality or if it captures someone with their eyes closed.
The analysis done by DXOmark confirms that we are facing a very good camera that takes really spectacular photographs. Focus system performance has also been signaled, as well as detail retention, noise reduction, zoom quality and realistic bokeh effects. The device has also gone very far in the field of exposure and provides an excellent dynamic range, which DXOmark says is one of the most extensive ever.
This means that the Galaxy Note 9 camera is able to capture high contrast scenes with deep shadows and very bright lights. Images are also bright and vivid, with balanced white balance and good color rendition.
In line with the other top-of-the-range Samsung phones that have been released in the last two years, Galaxy Note 9 comes with very few design changes. In fact, Note 9 looks almost identical to the Galaxy Note 8 released last year. These similarities are largely present on the front of Note 9 despite the slightly smaller frames to accommodate the 6.4 inch screen.
The fingerprint sensor located on the back (now placed below the camera) is a way of distinguishing Note 9 from 8.
