For many smartphone fans, the Xiaomi 13 Ultra is currently the most versatile camera phone that money can buy. The well-known camera test platform DxOMark is not so sure about this. In the test, the 13 Ultra only managed 14th place in the ranking. This put it behind smartphones such as the Huawei P60 Pro (1st place), the Google Pixel 7 Pro (6th), the Apple iPhone 14 Pro and iPhone 14 Pro Max (8th), the Apple iPhone 13 Pro and iPhone 13 Pro Max (11th .) and even Xiaomi’s own Mi 11 Ultra from two years ago.

The DxOMark ranking is based on a point system in which the Xiaomi 13 Ultra got a smooth 140 points. Above is the full breakdown and the pros and cons. Pushing Xiaomi’s best camera phone to number 14 might seem harsh. But if you take a closer look, you can see that the DxOMark test contains more praise than criticism.

According to the test, one of the many advantages of the Xiaomi 13 Ultra was the consistent image quality over the entire zoom range. The neutral white balance was also convincing in the DxOMark test, as was the very natural reproduction of details in images. The dynamic range in photos was very large and the noise was kept within pleasantly narrow limits.

Issues in the Xiaomi 13 Ultra DxOMark test included exposure instabilities, as well as some halos and oversaturated colors in outdoor shots. In video recordings, DxOMark criticized some white balance issues and rare artifacts in moving objects. Also, the testers noticed a noticeable lag between the shutter button and the actual shot.
