Not so long ago, the Xiaomi 12S Ultra smartphone was tested in the DxOMark laboratory, where it took only fifth place in the ranking of the best camera phones, losing even to last year’s model.
Interestingly, Xiaomi did not send the Xiaomi 12S Ultra for testing, but DxOMark purchased the smartphone and tested it anyway. When Huawei topped the ranking a few years ago and then released ever better camera phones every year, many manufacturers tried to get into the DxOMark ranking and climb as high as possible. But in the past two years, DxOMark’s popularity has plummeted, with fewer manufacturers submitting their phones for testing.
Why are mobile phone manufacturers so reluctant to have their smartphones tested in DxOMark? DxOMark CEO Frédéric Guichard gave the simplest and clearest answer to this question in an interview with Jiemian News.
He stated that today, very few phones can climb high in the DxOMark rankings, and even fewer smartphones that can take first place. And for many, only the first place makes sense when promoting their smartphone on the market.
How new iPhone 14 is more productive than its predecessors: Antutu’s latest ranking of the fastest iPhones and iPads
The team of the popular Antutu benchmark has published a fresh monthly rating of the most productive Apple mobile devices.
At the end of September, it became clear how good smartphones in the new iPhone 14 line are in terms of performance. According to Antutu experts, although the iPhone 14 did not perform very well, the iPhone 14 Pro still boasts good results thanks to the A16 SoC and 6 GB of RAM.
As we can see, the iPhone 14 Pro managed to take 4th place in the ranking, losing in performance to Apple tablets – iPad Pro 5 of different diagonals and iPad Air 5 based on the Apple M1 SoC. At the same time, the more expensive and larger iPhone 14 Pro Max took fifth place, scoring less than the iPhone 14 Pro.
According to Antutu experts, the reason for this is due to the large screen size of the iPhone 14 Pro Max. Assuming that the basic configuration of the two models is almost the same, the difference in screen size gives a difference of about 2000 pixels. The base model iPhone 14 got into the Antutu rating, but only in tenth place.
Last year’s iPhone 13 Pro and iPhone 13 Pro Max took eighth and seventh places, respectively, and the iPhone 13 was not included in the ranking.
The data was collected from September 1 to September 30, 2022. It is worth noting that the table shows the average, not the highest results, while at least 1000 tests were used for each model.
