by on12 August 2020

Takes the throne in the main camera benchmark

As expected, Xiaomi did well with the main rear camera on the Mi 10 Ultra, which gave it first place on the DXOMARK list, with an overall score of 130.

In case you missed it, the main camera system features a 48-megapixel 1/1.23” sensor behind an f/1.85 lens with OIS. The main sensor is supported by a second 48-megapixel 1/2.0" sensor behind f/4.1 periscope lens for 5x optical and 120x hybrid zoom as well as a 20-megapixel ultrawide one and a 12-megapixel sensor with telephoto lens with 2x optical zoom.

The rear camera system got an overall score of 130, with 142 photo and a 106 video score.

When it comes to pros and cons, DXOMARK said that the camera has a good target exposure and wide dynamic range with accurate white balance, but had fusion artifacts in HDR scenes and slight luminace in most conditions. The zoom was great with excellent detail at medium and long-range zoom, very wide field of view and good dynamic range of the ultra-wide camera, good white balance in flash shots, and pleasant bokeh effect.

It was not all great as it had some noise and loss of detail in ultra-wide shots and strong yellow light under low sodium vapor light.

Video was pretty good, with good stabilization, good autofocus but a slightly limited dynamic range, slightly low target exposure in indoor videos, and artifacts such as flickering, color quantization, aliasing, and moiré are sometimes visible.

In general, the Xiaomi Mi 10 Ultra now holds the throne over at the DXOMARK, pushing the Huawei P40 Pro down to second place. You can check out the full test over at

Unfortunately, it appears that Xiaomi Mi 10 Ultra is not coming to the rest of the world and will be limited to China, at least for now.
