The OnePlus 8T has been nuts and bolts reality for a while now, and since its launch, the phone has been quite popular with buyers. The OnePlus 8T’s success is based on a number of factors, including its core hardware, cameras and fast refresh rate display. Of these, the cameras have now been put through an in-depth review, with DxOMark comparing it to other popular camera phones in the market.
DxoMark in its camera review of the OnePlus 8T has given it an overall score of 111 points, putting the device on par with the Google Pixel 4a and the old Huawei Mate 20 Pro. This Qualcomm Snapdragon 865 SoC phone offers decent power in the camera department, however, as per the review, the phone’s overall performance isn’t too great.
According to DxOMark, the main issues with the phone’s camera is inaccurate color reproduction and noise across almost all shooting scenarios, especially in low-light. It also adds that the Dynamic range is also not up to the mark, with telephoto shots lacking detail and producing noise. The review also points out issues with videography on the phone, with videos needing better focus in low-light conditions.
However, the review does mention that the phone offers good exposure metering and a wide depth of field that ensures a sharp background. Additionally, the review also praises the phone’s ability to shoot bokeh shots which offer an accurate and convincing depth effect.
