With a score of 149 points from DxOMark, the 15 Pro Max takes its rightful place at the pinnacle of the smartphone camera hierarchy. It offers impeccable exposure, swift and precise autofocus, a wide dynamic range, and outstanding detail reproduction in well-lit conditions. Plus, its video stabilization ensures steady footage, even on the move.
But, as with any piece of technology, there are some caveats to consider. Despite its small sensor size, which enhances depth of field, it can introduce visible noise, even in ideal lighting conditions. Color inaccuracies and fluctuations in sharpness may also crop up in videos.
Moreover, in portrait mode, the Face ID plugin delivers an accurate depth calculation, creating a natural background blur effect. However, it faces challenges when rendering intricate details like hair, making the effect appear somewhat artificial when scrutinized closely.
In sum, the 15 Pro Max is a great for selfies, offering an extraordinary selfie experience with minor imperfections. Its cutting-edge technology propels it to the forefront of the selfie camera competition, leaving the rest of the pack behind. Get ready to take your selfie game to new heights with this exceptional device.
