With an overall score of 90, the newly announced HTC U11 is the highest-rated smartphone camera ever tested by DxO and has taken the top-spot in the DxOMark Mobile ranking from the Google Pixel. 

The U11 scores impressively well across all categories and in particular offers very low noise levels and a fast autofocus. The testers also found the U11 images to have a pleasing look, with good color rendering. Outdoor scenes show vibrant colors and tones, good detail and very low noise. Flash exposures are very even across the frame and feature good detail preservation and color rendering.

The DxOMark team were also impressed by the HTC's efficient optical image stabilization system, although it can occasionally leave some residual evidence of motion. You can read the full report on DxOMark.com
