The DxOMark resource is known for testing the photographic properties of a smartphone and, based on the results of research, assesses the quality of the camera. The service is very authoritative and the points given to them have a very strong influence on the choice of users of a particular brand of mobile device.
Chinese smartphones have never been distinguished by high-quality cameras, but recently the flagship Xiaomi Mi 8 received 99 points, passing the iPhone X and Pixel 2. Many were alarmed by this fact and doubts about the objectivity of the test began to appear.
Experts analyzed the work of the camera software of a Chinese smartphone and found out that it is able to adapt to the DxOMark verification method and thereby produce an overestimated result.
