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 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. Its general DxOMark Mobile score of 94 sets another record, demolishing the 90 focuses for both the Google Pixel and the HTC U11, and in addition, the 92 that its kin 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 most noteworthy, yet tied with the HTC U11 and somewhat underneath the Pixel's 91. DxOMark is quick to point out that the former is almost a year old now, so there's still time for the Pixel 2 to catch up or defeat its Apple rival. "[It's] the best-performing mobile device camera we have ever tested". The iPhone 8 Plus features a 12MP dual-camera setup. With their updated methodology and current rankings, there is validity in their test results and I recommend checking out all of the details in their full test reports. To nobody's surprise, both the iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus gave stellar camera performance results - but not without hiccups and flaws here and there.More news: French union boss: we won't beat Macron reforms if we are divided

According to DxOMark's blog post, images captured with iPhone 8 Plus in bright outdoors have "excellent detail preservation, accurate colour, and impressive dynamic range". The iPhone 7 Plus scores a much lower 88 points, while the iPhone 7 only manages to get 85 points.
The iPhone 8 still captures at the same 12-megapixel resolution as the 5s, but the difference in image quality is huge, due to improvements to the sensor and ISP. From the test, it additionally caught the first pictures utilizing the new HEIF (High-Efficiency Image Format), however at that point, it changed over them to superb JPEGs for review in standard programs and picture altering programming.
