Apple has the best phone camera, says DxO tests

While on paper the cameras on the latest phones are similar to that of their iPhone 7 counterparts, they seem to outperform their predecessors as well as Google Pixel and HTC U11 to lead DxOMark camera rankings.

DxOMark just revamped the way it reviews mobile devices, the site announced earlier this month. DxOMark says the iPhone 8 Plus' dual camera setup has the best performing camera they have ever tested for photography.

DxO posted its review today, along with the iPhone 8, which came second best.

But we must highlight the iPhone 8 Plus is already just six points short of perfection, with particularly impressive scores in the photo exposure & contrast, flash and color departments, as well as video stabilization, color, autofocus and exposure & contrast. The sample photos are indeed rather stunning and I look forward to hearing more about the iPhone 8 Plus from ZDNet reviewers.

Apple's iPhone 8 Plus has the world's 'best smartphone camera', according to DxOMark

"Overall, the Apple iPhone 8 Plus is an excellent choice for the needs of almost every smartphone photographer", DxOMark concludes. You get among the best HDR performances of any device with the iPhone 8, very accurate autofocus, but some autofocus delays in both bright and low light. According to DxOMark the iPhone 8 Plus has the highest performing depth-of-field when compared to the other phones that have been tested.

The iPhone 8 Plus has "outstanding image quality" and "an industry-leading Portrait mode". That's according to camera testing site DxOMark, which says that Apple's new flagship range tops its charts in almost every category, featuring "outstanding image quality".

The upgrades given to the cameras - a 12MP main wide-angle camera (with a backside-illuminated (BSI) sensor and f/1.8 lens) and a 12MP telephoto camera (with a f/2.8 lens) - have improved its quality in every single category.
