Little did the Honor know that the Google Pixel 7 Pro was coming. Some few weeks after our top 5 list, the Google Pixel 7 Pro took over the top spot. In total, it gained the same points of 147 just like the Honor Magic 4 Ultimate. But the pros and cons of both flagship phones gave a slight advantage to to Pixel 7 Pro. Hence sitting comfortably at the top of the chart.

If there was any other phone capable of beating the Pixel 7 Pro, then Apple’s iPhone 14 Pro or the Pro Max was the only phone that had that capacity. At least that is what everyone thought.

At the end of the list, the Honor Magic 4 Ultimate emerged as the winner. Claiming the top spot with 147 total score. Before the Honor Magic 4 Ultimate took over, the king at that time was the Huawei P50 Pro. Topping the chart with 143 points. Which means the Honor Magic 4 Ultimate gave it a gap on 4.

Today, DxOMark release their camera test results for the Huawei Mate 50 Pro. And the new flagship from the Chinses tech giants had a top score 149. Beating the Google Pixel 7 Pro by two points.
