DxOMark likewise noted enhancements in HDR photography with the iPhone 8 contrasted with the iPhone 7. The most noticeable difference here is the glass back which enables wireless charging in the iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus.
The Apple iPhone 8 Plus is the best-performing mobile device camera we have ever tested. 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". For your knowledge, the iPhone 7 Plus scored 88 a year ago before beaten by the Google Pixel.
According to DXOmark, the iPhone 8 Plus also has one of the best video-taking capabilities. "Despite the relatively small changes in the actual camera specs, additional development and processing power allow it to beat out the 7 Plus by 5 points, putting it even further ahead of the Google Pixel, with a score of 55 compared to 30", DxOMark's blog post read. The full breakdown of scores by category can be seen in the image above. The review also praises the low light performance of the iPhone 8 series and improvements to the image signal processor dramatically increases the prowess of the iPhone 8 Plus's dual-camera for zoomed and bokeh shots.
DxOMark performed a lot of exhaustive tests on Apple's new phones, and some of those tests were pretty lab-heavy evaluation processes that pushed the cameras to their limit. This includes an "excellent performance in bright light" and the ability to click well-exposed and detailed low-light photos. That's not surprising of course, seeing as how its rear camera is identical to the main camera of the iPhone 8 Plus.
DxOMark, however, does not expect iPhone 8 Plus' reign to last long. It features outstanding image quality, zoom for those needing to get closer to their subjects, and an industry-leading Portrait mode for artistic efforts. The X's camera system boasts wider aperture and optical image stabilization on both the wide-angle and telephoto lenses. It comes with features like Quad-LED True Tone flash, Autofocus, and AutoHDR.
