The ultrawide camera has also been called class-leading by DxOMark. This is a testament to Samsung’s ambition to build more high-resolution sensors. It is already planning a 600-megapixel image sensor next. However, it was held by the slower autofocus performance in low-light. This has been the biggest complaint for Galaxy S20 Ultra since it became available. The reviewers also note that dynamic range is not as good as that of the Huawei P40 Pro.

They also believe that it falls behind Xiaomi Mi 10 Pro when it comes to sharpness. The DxOMark review team also found some artifacts in some of the zoom shots. When it comes to video, they like the vivid and pleasant color outdoors but also low detail in low light. They also dislike motion effects in indoor videos. The Galaxy S20 Ultra is a solid case for use of a 108-megapixel sensor on a flagship smartphone but Samsung has left room for improvement.
