So the Moto X Style was officially announced today, but it seems that despite that, the folks at DxOMark have actually managed to get their hands on the device ahead of time and conducted several camera tests with it, which surprisingly turned out pretty well because according to the results, the camera performed admirably.
In fact it performed well enough that it outperformed the iPhone 6 and the Sony Xperia Z3+, both of whom were actually ranked pretty high on DxOMark’s previous tests. The phones that it came close to beat was that of the Samsung Galaxy S6 and the S6 Edge and scored 83 out of 100 which is actually 3 points away from Samsung.
According to DxOMark’s Kevin Carter, “Scores for Exposure and contrast and Color are on a par with the Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge and iPhone 6 Plus and remained competitive for Autofocus, Texture (detail), and for control of Noise and Artifacts.” He goes on to praise the Moto X Style’s accurate white balance and autofocus and stabilization when it comes to video.
Given that Motorola isn’t exactly a company you would necessarily associate when it comes to smartphone cameras, this does sound promising although at the end of the day, it’s really up to you to decide if it is the camera for you.
