Last month the iPhone 8 Plus took the top spot on DxOMark for photos with a score of 94. Now the Samsung Galaxy Note 8 has also been tested and it managed to score 94 and has tied with the iPhone 8 Plus.
The iPhone 8 Plus and the Samsung Galaxy Note 8 both come with dual rear cameras that feature 12 megapixel sensors.
When all the tests are verified, the scores calculated, and the perceptual analyses discussed, the Samsung Galaxy Note 8 comes out as an outstanding choice for the smartphone photography enthusiast, matching the top overall score of 94 points of the iPhone 8 Plus. Dual-cam setups offering a second telephoto zoom for portraits are a real step forward for high-end smartphone photography, and the implementation on the Note 8 is exceptional, making it the best smartphone for zoom shots we’ve tested.
Add to that extremely fast and accurate autofocus and a very competent flash unit, the Note 8 breaks new ground as the first smartphone to achieve 100 points for its photo sub-score. With new devices on the horizon from several of the key innovators for smartphone photography, will the Note 8 be able to hold onto its top spot? Time will tell.
