DXOMARK held an online launch of its test benchmark and scoring system update, releasing a new test benchmark and scoring system for 2022, as well as updated rankings for smartphone images, screen, audio and battery. Based on the updated image scoring test benchmarks, DXOMARK re-ranked the Top 10 smartphone images.
Specifically, under the new V5 scoring standard, the Honor Magic 4 Supreme Edition and Huawei P50 Pro still ranked first and second on the list. iPhone 13 Pro/Pro Max scored a big increase under the new mechanism, scoring 141 points and ranking third.
The Xiaomi 12S Ultra, on the other hand, scored 2 points lower than the previous V4 standard, coming in seventh on the list with 136 points. The camera was previously ranked fifth in the DXOMARK global image rankings.
It is worth mentioning that Xiaomi CEO Lei Jun previously said that the Xiaomi 12S Ultra would not be sent to DXOMARK for testing, while DXOMARK said that it always adheres to professional and considerable standards and would purchase the Xiaomi 12S Ultra for testing on its own expense.
In addition, DXOMARK also reiterated that “we don’t sell scores or lists” that the business model is to sell lab and technical reports, and that how scores are published depends only on the quality of the product itself and is not affected by whether the manufacturer chooses a review service.
