The devices that entered the top five (Top 5) smartphones with the best selfie cameras in a row are:

  • Pixel 3 (92 points)

  • Samsung Galaxy Note 9 (92 points)

  • Xiaomi Mi Mix 3 (84 points)

  • Apple iPhone XS Max (82 pounds)

  • Samsung Galaxy S9 Plus (81 points)

DxOMark’s assessment is based on objective and subjective testing at stable and controlled conditions. DxOMark even makes dummy humans with realistic skin colours to ensure consistency and score accuracy for each smartphone. For each smartphone tested, DxOMark analyzed 1,500 photos and two-hour videos. It should be noted, the results of testing selfie cameras have nothing to do with the quality of the cellphone’s back camera.
