OnePlus 8T Camera scores 111 points in DxOMark test; needs improvement in low-light performance


A few months ago, OnePlus refreshed its flagship smartphone OnePlus 8 with the launch of OnePlus 8T, powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 865 SoC. The smartphone comes with some changes in the display and camera department.

As for the camera configuration, it features a 48 MP Sony IMX586 primary sensor with f/1.7 aperture, a 12 MP ultra-wide sensor with f/2.2 aperture, a 5 MP macro sensor, and 2 MP monochrome sensor.

The review of DxOMark says that the camera performance of OnePlus 8T is decent and the images captured are “nice to look at in the right conditions” but there are some areas for improvement. For instance, while shooting at night, there is a strong variance in exposure and dynamic range between shots.


The main concern about the camera performance seems to be the lack of perfect color reproduction. In the test, the team observed many images showing color casts or inaccurate color rendering, especially during low light conditions. There is also strong noise, which gets worse in low-light conditions.


As for the video performance, it offers effective video stabilization, neutral white balance and pleasant colors, but again the low-light performance needs improvements. Also, the focus transitions are abrupt, making it challenging to record moving subjects.
