Finally someone did it: Galaxy Note 10+ exceeded the HuaweiP30 Pro in the rear camera ranking of DxOMark; both have four sensors, including a ToF for 3D depth. And when it comes to front-facing cameras, Samsung’s new phone is also in first place, surpassing the Asus Zenfone 6 and its 48 megapixel swivel camera.
To recap: the Galaxy Note 10+ has a 12 megapixel main sensor with variable aperture lens f / 1.5-2.4 and optical image stabilization (OIS). There is a 16 MP sensor with ultrawide lens; another 12 MP sensor with 2x optical zoom lens; and the ToF (Time of Flight) sensor to capture depth data.
DxOMark evaluates cameras in terms of photo and video, considering indicators such as exposure, color reproduction, auto focus, texture, noise, artifacts and bokeh (an effect that blurs the background).
The Galaxy Note 10+ rear camera has reached a overall score of 113, ranking first in the DxOMark ranking. In the picture, he reached 118 points – one to any lessthan the Huawei P30 Pro. Meanwhile, on video, there were 101 points, four more than its competitor.
According to DxOMark, the exposure in Photos it is “consistent and accurate in a variety of lighting conditions”, and the dynamic range is quite wide when capturing high contrast images, “in which the accent and shadow details are well preserved”.
The main sensor has 12 megapixels, against 40 MP of the Huawei P30 Pro, but “it still manages to capture many details, with well-defined edges and intricate elements visible in good lighting conditions”.

The 2x optical zoom “records very high levels of detail, low noise and good color”, but the digital zoom stumbles a bit. DxOMark also criticizes noise levels, “which can sometimes become visible in low light”, but Note 10+ manages to maintain a balance between reducing noise and maintaining the image’s texture.
When it comes to video, Note 10+ is the best phone ever tested by DxOMark. It has precise exposure “in almost all conditions”, a very wide dynamic range, bright and vivid color, high levels of detail and an effective stabilization system.
Galaxy Note 10+ overtakes Asus Zenfone 6 in selfies
DxOMark also evaluates the frontal camera and has a separate ranking for that. The Note 10+ overtook the Asus Zenfone 6, which was the first placed so far with its dual 48-megapixel swivel camera.
The Note 10+ has a front camera with only a 10 megapixel sensor, but it captures images with good exposure on faces even in very low light levels, wide dynamic range, and good color and skin tones reproduction, according to DxOMark.
Yes, Samsung continues to place a greater emphasis on noise reduction in selfies: “this means that noise is very well controlled in outdoor and indoor photos, and it starts to infiltrate only when shooting in low light”. Note 10+ maintains details and textures, but not on the same level as its competitors.
Samsung Galaxy Note 10+, Apple iPhone XS Max and Samsung Galaxy S10 +:
The bokeh mode suffers a little, because there is no secondary camera to capture depth data, and it ends up blurring objects incorrectly. Still, the Note 10+ ‘s front camera “has no real weakness and offers good image results in virtually any selfie situation,” says DxOMark.
It is worth noting that DxOMark tested the Note 10+ 5G variant, which has exactly the same rear and front cameras as the 4G model.
