Taking photos with the Samsung Galaxy S10+

Samsung’s Galaxy S10+ smartphone has been awarded first place in the DxOMark Selfie scale, and joint first place for its rear camera in the DxOMark Mobile scale.

The award comes days after the flagship device was launched at Samsung’s Unpacked 2019 event.

In the DxOMark Mobile ranking, the phone achieved an overall score of 109 – 114 Photo score and 97 Video score.

“DxOMark looked at Galaxy S10+’s triple rear camera for Exposure and Contrast, Colour, Autofocus, Texture, Noise, Artifacts, Flash, Stabilization (for Video), Zoom, and Bokeh,” said Samsung.

The high score is thanks to the camera’s advanced triple-sensor system, which features 0.5x/2x optical zoom, and up to 10x digital zoom.

  • Telephoto – 12MP PDAF, F2.4, OIS (45°)
  • Wide-angle – 12MP Super Speed Dual Pixel AF, F1.5/F2.4, OIS (77°)
  • Ultra-wide – 16MP FF, F2.2 (123°)

The front camera is a dual-sensor system, with 10MP Dual Pixel AF, F1.9 (80°) and 8MP FF, F2.2 (90°) sensors.

Camera in action

To see how the Galaxy S10+’s camera performs, we put it to the test by turning the phone on, leaving all settings on default, and pointing and shooting.

A range of photos were taken, with difference subjects and lighting – and all produced excellent results.

Zooming in

On the camera screen just above the “shoot” button, Samsung has included three small icons which let you select between 0.5x, 1.0x, and 2.0x zoom.

Changing the zoom produces marked differences in the photos you take. This is shown in the three photos below.

The photos were taken with the Galaxy S10+ and the PlayStation controller in the same position, with only the zoom setting changed for each photo.
