DxOMark has posted its review of the iPhone XR camera ranking it as the best single-lens smartphone camera.

The iPhone XR features a 12MP camera with a 1/2.55" sensor, 1.4µm pixel pitch, 26mm f/1.8 aperture lens, optical image stabilization, phase-detection autofocus, and a dual-tone LED flash.

Achieving an overall DxOMark Mobile score of 101 points, the iPhone XR becomes the top ranked single-cam device we’ve tested to date. It just surpasses the Google Pixel 2 for still photos, with marginally better noise-versus-texture results, and significantly fewer artifacts. Both devices achieve the same overall score for video.

The iPhone XR had a photo score of 103 points and performed similar to the iPhone XS in exposure, color, detail, noise, and artifacts. However, lack of a second lens means bokeh and zoom isn't as good as Apple's flagship. Notably, DxOMark found that the flash was slightly improved over the XS Max.

Target exposures are very good in both indoor and outdoor conditions, and the automatic HDR mode ensures that the smartphone captures wide dynamic range in tricky high-contrast scenes. The noise-versus-texture compromise is similar to that of the XS Max, ensuring good fine detail and edge preservation in both indoor and outdoor shots; and although very fine details do get lost in low-light shots, it has acceptable exposure even in the most extreme low-light situations, making the images very usable.

For a single-lens camera, the iPhone XR also does quite well in DxOMarks overall mobile rankings, coming in 7th. In first place is the Huawei P20 Pro (109) followed by the iPhone XS Max (105).
