Apple has the best phone camera, says DxO tests

Reportedly made by LG, the Pixel 2 XL is expected to come with a bezel-less display that looks very similar to the displays found on both LGs own flagship phones.

DxOMark has completed its review of the iPhone 8 Plus and declared it to be the best smartphone camera it's ever tested. The iPhone 8 Plus scores exceptionally high marks in both Zoom image quality and Bokeh quality, two new categories that DxOMark just added to its scoring system.

All of us were aware that both the iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus pack impressive shooters but we didn't expect that their image and video prowess would enable them to achieve the highest scores in DxOMark's test results. It is at the top of our scoring charts in almost every category - and in particular, its advanced software allows it to do an unbelievable job of capturing high-dynamic range scenes and images in which it can recognize faces. The device experienced some autofocus and exposure issues, visible noise in low-light conditions and a tungsten shade in low and indoor lighting.

The analyst said that photos taken with the iPhone 8 camera are "generally stunning" with accurate color and rich detail.

DxOMark recently overhauled it testing methodology to reflect modern smartphone camera features such as dual cameras, Bokeh effects, and more.

The iPhone 8 Plus' dual camera setup features a 12-megapixel (wide-angle) camera with a f/1.8 aperture, as well as a 12-megapixel telephoto lens with a f/2.8 aperture.

Meanwhile, the regular iPhone 8, with just the one 12MP rear camera on deck, is deemed a "solid performance upgrade over the iPhone 7", yielding 92 points and following its big brother in second place, ahead of the Pixel, U11 and Galaxy S8.

Apple aren't the only tech giant to suffer from leaky smartphone launches.
