Are these DxOMark scores really matter nowadays?
OnePlus 7 Pro scored 111 DxO Mark and puts everyone in question. The answer to this question is mixed that is Yes and No both. Sometimes DxOMark scores matters like in case of Pixel smartphones because it has a single camera and whole DxOMark score is based on that single camera.
On the other hand, a smartphone with a dual rear camera and triple rear camera gets advantage and also gets extra DxO score because of different type of lenses like a telephoto lens and ultra-wide-angle lens.
