These days a good many flagship smartphones are being equipped with dual or even triple camera lenses. However with the Google Pixel 3, Google has opted to maintain a single lens, but at the same time rely on software to keep achieve certain effects that would otherwise only be possible with a dual lens design.
However despite it only sporting a single lens, it seems that the folks over at DxOMark have found that the Pixel 3 actually packs a pretty amazing camera, and have given it a score of 101. Based on the platform’s scores, it makes the Pixel 3 the best single-camera lens Android smartphone available on the market right now.
It also seems to have tied with the iPhone XR, although with the iPhone XR, DxOMark has called it the “Top-ranked single-lens phone”. According to DxOMark’s conclusion in their review of the camera of the Pixel 3, “With the Pixel 3, Google continues to make impressive gains in image processing using computational imaging. The result is a very versatile camera that people can confidently use in most situations without any manual settings or tweaks.”
Other phones that have made the list of top-ranked smartphones includes the Huawei P20 Pro which is currently the top, followed by the iPhone XS Max, the HTC U12+, the Samsung Galaxy Note 9, the Xiaomi Mi Mix 3, the Huawei P20, then the iPhone XR and the Google Pixel 3.
