Apple iPhone 12 Pro DXOMARK Selfie

The iPhone 12 Pro comes with a single 12 MP 1/3.6-inch sensor with an f/2.2-aperture lens on the front. This camera is accompanied by an SL 3D sensor for depth estimation.

The phone is capable of recording 4K (3840 x 2160 pixels) Dolby Vision HDR videos at 24/30/60 fps and FHD (1920 x 1080 pixels) videos at up to 120 fps. The camera hardware does not have OIS and hence, the device uses gyro-EIS.

The device scored 101 points and 93 points for photo and video categories respectively in DXOMARK Selfie. Therefore, its overall score averaged at 98 points.

According to the review, the iPhone 12 Pro’s selfie camera outputs pictures with generally accurate exposure on faces with pleasant skin tone rendering. The images produced are highly detailed in bright to normal indoor lightings and even noise on in-focus subjects are well-controlled in bright light.


It even offers accurate depth estimation in bokeh mode, thanks to the additional sensor. However, noise is visible in the background. There are also occasional white balance casts and clipping in high dynamic range senses. Further, exposure drops down when using the flash mode and since the camera comes with fixed focus, distant subjects are blurry.


As for videos, the phone can record detailed clips with a wide dynamic range and accurate white balance. Although there are few artifacts, residual motion effects kick in while walking and visible noise at lower light levels.

In simpler words, the Apple iPhone 12 Pro’s front camera performs very well with some shortcomings like any other flagship smartphone available in the market.
