Particularly with their “overall” score, DXO is pretending to assign an objective scientific-looking measurement to something that is inherently subjective. It’s horseshit, but everyone in the media falls for it. I said it was horseshit last year when they named a Pixel their “highest rated ever”, and I say it’s bullshit now when they said that about an iPhone. John Gruber
I know very little about the quality of DXO’s reviews. John Gruber hasn’t shown he knows much either. It's his opinion against the process that DXO follows. So if DXO's reviews are indeed useless, the Gruber's statements are just as much horse shit. But his statements have a wider reach then mine. He’s the Daring Fireball.
