It was a few days back that we said iPhone 8 and iPhone 8+ had beaten the most powerful chipsets used by its competitor brands and smartphones like the Samsung Galaxy Note 8, Samsung Galaxy S8, Galaxy S8+, and the OnePlus 5. Now it seems that the two Apple phones have the best cameras on the market as well.
Apple's iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus cameras have seemingly outranked everyone by a fair margin. DxOMark, a trusted industry standard for camera and lens image quality has reviewed the new Apple iPhone 8 Plus and has given a rating of 94 out of 100 and iPhone 8 a score of 92. And what this means is that the new scores put the iPhone 8 series ahead of all the other smartphone brands in the market.
DxOMark's detailed review notes, "The Apple iPhone 8 Plus is the best-performing mobile device camera we have ever tested. Its overall DxOMark Mobile score of 94 sets a new record, beating out the 90 points for both the Google Pixel and the HTC U11, as well as the 92 that its sibling iPhone 8 just scored. Its Photo score of 96 is also a new record, blowing past the Pixel's 90. For Video, its score of 89 is among our highest, but tied with the HTC U11 and slightly below the Pixel's 91. Of course, the Pixel is nearly a year old now, so it makes sense that Apple's new flagship is breaking new ground."
Besides, the DxOMark review reveals very surprising facts about Apple's new phones which you can read here. But all in all what we can take away from this result is that as the iPhone 8 and 8+ comes with powerful hardware it does wonders for the software processing. And the end result is that you get high-quality photos that are not only much better than its predecessors' but also much better than the competition.
Well, now we are a believer that Apple iPhone cameras are much better than expected. And just like the hardware in the new smartphones have got a massive upgrade, so did the cameras. DxOMark has provided sample shots as well.
Nonetheless, Apple seems to have not only managed to pass the competition but the company has surpassed themselves. Apple iPhone 8 and 8 Plus (on paper) are better than Google Pixel, HTC U11, and many others.
Will Google Pixel 2 manage to beat Apple? The said smartphone is also expected to come with a lot of improvements over the previous generation. In any case, we will find out probably before the year ends.
