DxOMark, the website known for its performance ratings of the cameras of smartphones and other devices has released its result and a full review for the OnePlus 6T. The 6T may have the same camera configuration as the OnePlus 6 but DxOMark says software changes have resulted in improvements over its predecessor.
The OnePlus 6T has dual rear cameras – a 16MP 1/2.55″ sensor with a f/1.7 aperture and a 20MP 1/2.8″ sensor with a f/1.7 aperture. The main sensor has OIS but the secondary sensor doesn’t have any stabilization.
DxOMark praised the OnePlus 6T for its wide dynamic range and its preservation of colors in almost all conditions. However, the device didn’t perform well in zoom shots. In terms of video performance, the OnePlus 6T did better than its predecessor as it scored a total of 91 points as against the OP6’s 87. DxOMark says its overall score should be higher but it doesn’t handle noise well, not even as good as the OnePlus 6.
The OnePlus 6T’s photo score is 101. It captures detail well in both light and dark areas and DxOMark says its capturing of background details is on the same level as that of the iPhone XS and better than that of the Samsung Galaxy Note9. It also captures better images in extreme low-light (1 lux) than both phones.
Where the OnePlus 6T scores low when compared to both phones is in its zoom shots. Its lack of a telephoto lens greatly affects detail level as can be seen in the image above.
DxOMark has given the OnePlus 6T an overall score of 98. Its strongest areas are autofocus, exposure, flash, and color but zoom and bokeh are its weakest areas. For videos, it adds stabilization to its strengths but doesn’t do very well when it comes to textures.
