Following the huge success of its previous phones, OnePlus has been heavily marketing its latest flagship device, the OnePlus 5. The company created much hype over the dual-camera setup of the OnePlus 5 smartphone. In an attempt to prove its credibility of the camera to the world, the company partnered with DxO, earlier in March this year. For those unaware, DxO is known for creating the photography benchmark test, DoXMark, and its review of the OnePlus 5 is now out.

In this DoXMark review, the OnePlus 5 notched up a score of 87, which is undoubtedly a high mark in terms of the camera performance. With this score, OnePlus 5 managed to beat those of some major phones in the market such as the LG V20 and the iPhone 7. However, its score of 87 is still disappointing in a way as it came very close and still falls just short of the scores of Samsung Galaxy S8 and Google Pixel at 88 and 89 respectively. These scores were given by the DxOMark review as well, with the HTC U11 bagging the highest score of 90.

Despite OnePlus 5 scoring a “good” 87, the DxO review lists some demerits of its phone camera including things like the strong loss of details in outdoor conditions with occasional ghosting effect and some very fine details lost in low-light conditions. On the other hand, some of its positives were also seen listed in the review such as the pleasant and vivid display in all conditions, good detail preservation in bright conditions, its fast and smooth autofocus, and its ability to maintain an accurate white balance in all conditions.

To recall, the OnePlus 5 comes with a dual-camera setup on its rear panel with a combination of 16MP Sony IMX 398 primary sensor and 20MP Sony IMX 350 secondary telephoto sensor. They also offer 2x lossless zoom (1.6x to be precise) and depth of field features like the Bokeh effect. To the front is a 16MP camera with f/2.0 aperture for selfies and video calling purposes.
