DXoMark has extensively tested the photographic sector of Samsung’s latest super top of the range, the Galaxy S23 Ultra, and the results are good but not very good: the device is tenth in the global ranking, tied with Google’s Pixel 7 (not the Pro variant, which is well ahead) and the Vivo X90 Pro Plus. However, the overall score is 140, just 9 points away from the current king of the Huawei Mate 50 Pro ranking; in short, we can say that the gap is decidedly thin. Below is an image that summarizes the detailed results of the test very quickly and immediately:


Tests show that the device performs especially well indoorswhere it has only three points of difference from the best result overall (attention, it does not necessarily coincide with the smartphone with the highest overall score), while it suffers a little when the lighting conditions are poor.
