He HTC U12 + finally it has been presented, and although there was not much room for surprise after the numerous and massive leaks, is a more than good attempt by the company to return to the top of the market. We will not deny that it is difficult to stop an inertia that has been dominant for many years in HTC, but it is also true that HTC is doing things quite well, and the photographic results of the HTC U12 + camera are proof of that.
The HTC U12 arrives with a total of 4 cameras divided into two and two by the front and back of the smartphone, and according to Dxomark , they offer very good results.
The new HTC integrates a double camera in horizontal position with an UltraPixel sensor 12 MP with opening f / 1.8 and a second sensor 16 MP , which serves as 2x optical zoom . This photographic sensor includes optical stabilizer and laser autofocus, and is capable of recording video with a resolution of 4K @ 60 fps.
At frontal we also have two sensors, which are 8 MP in both cases and have an opening f / 2.0 .
According to DxOMark, the camera of the HTC U12 + obtained a total score from 103 points , result of a score of 106 for photography and 95 points in video recording. This places HTC U12 + on second position , just behind the acclaimed Huawei P20 Pro.
Therefore, and at least according to the procedure followed by this independent institution, the photographic section of the HTC U12 + is among the best in the industry in terms of sharpness, color quality and dynamic range, all together with the level of noise and grain very reduced even in the most complicated scenes and with a low level of light.
DxOMark has also highlighted the speed and precision of the autofocus , as well as the great performance of 2x optical zoom made by the second 16Mpx sensor, which could be considered the best on the market.
All the advantages when taking photographs also apply in the video recording, which can also boast of excellent effective stabilization and auto focus fast, as well as some very correct exposure and dynamic range , together with a low noise level even in low light conditions.
As Bad points , DxOMark refers to a slight loss of detail with optical zoom in low light conditions, some visible artifacts when HDR is activated and noticeable noise in captures with very little light, although the latter is something in which all smartphones falter
In summary, the HTC U12 + may not be the best design smartphone on the market or the one that enjoys the best screen, but it is a very powerful, optimized smartphone that must be taken into account by those who are looking for a device with excellent photographic capabilities
