IPhone 8 Plus Has the Best Performing Smartphone Camera Ever

IPhone 8 Plus Has the Best Performing Smartphone Camera Ever

"The Apple iPhone 8 Plus has a main camera system truly worthy of a flagship phone", DxOMark says in the opening of its newly published review.

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.

The iPhone 8 Plus has the best performing camera ever installed in a smartphone, according to well-respected camera firm DxO Labs. For comparison's sake, the last record was a 90 held by the Google Pixel.

As far as iPhone 8 Plus-specific features, the device's zoom feature scored a full five points better than the zoom on the iPhone 7 Plus.

Most interestingly, DxOMark's results show that Apple has made significant improvements with the iPhone 8 generation over the iPhone 7 line.

The iPhone 8 Plus shines in picture taking, with a record-breaking Photo score of 96, while for recording videos it gets a score of 89 - tied with the HTC U11 and slightly below the Pixel's 91. The negatives discovered in testing include a color cast when shooting in artificial lighting and "some autofocus issues". That's the conclusion DxOMark came to after the camera testing lab went hands-on with the new Apple smartphone.

In addition, the camera performed well in low-light environments - with generally accurate exposure.

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.

The iPhone 8 Plus camera sports both a 12 megapixel wide-angle and telephoto lens. It is at the top of the charts in almost every category, while its advanced software means it does "an wonderful job" at capturing HDR scenes and images with faces in them.
