The front camera performance result of the ZTE Axon 20 5G, the world’s first under-screen front camera phone, has been published. We take a look at the details.
How does the front camera of the ZTE Axon 20 5G, the world’s first phone with under-screen front camera technology, perform? The front camera was passed by DxOMark, and preliminary results show that under-screen camera technology is still in its infancy. In other words, under-screen camera technology has a long way to go.
From the front camera review, where the Huawei Mate 40 Pro scored 104 points and the Mi 10 Ultra 88 points, the Axon 20 5G could only score 26 points. In the Axon 20 5G front camera review, the 32MP selfie camera was reported to have some image quality issues, although it was fairly stable in exposure and focus.
Some of the major issues are the phone’s narrow dynamic range and underexposure in very low light. This is not surprising, as the camera is under the screen. The Axon 20 struggles with white balance in photos.
The front camera’s video performance looks comparatively better, but it still appears at the bottom in the DxOMark site’s reviews. Low dynamic range causes clipping in both shadows and highlights. Also, there is color distortion in all shooting conditions and the noise level is high.
