As much as we'd be dismissive of DxOMark, it seems to carry this big de facto brandname when it comes to reviewing cameras. All manufacturers seem to give it undue importance. So a few things:

1. How much do you guys agree with their assessment? Final score of 68. 72 on photos, 62 on videos. It's lower than the iPhone 6 (71), higher than the Nokia 808 (61!!!)

2. Do we have other comparisons or videos that can rather decisively contradict this rating, that we could show to other non photo enthusiast friends of ours?

3. Why isn't DPreview majorly stepping into this massive reviewing market? (less important question)

Also for the photo score they look at things like the lack of OIS, no HDR, shutter lag (delay), the features of the camera app itself, ease of use, all things that the 808 falls short on, they don't just look at IQ.
