When the OnePlus 5 is released in the coming months, expect its camera score from DxOMark to be alongside it. OnePlus announced this morning that they are working with the photography benchmarker to “enhance your photography experience.”
Will you get a better photography experience on the OnePlus 5 with DxOMark helping out? Probably. This likely means that DxO will help OnePlus to fine-tune the camera on the 5 to produce images that will compete with some of the other highly rated DxO-approved phone makers. I don’t know that you should get overly excited about the DxO score that is created, though, since OnePlus is obviously hiring them to help create a high DxO score. But yeah, it’s something.
We’re all for better photography in phones and if working with DxO will get OnePlus there, good for them.
