Here is a side-by-side comparison of iPhone 8 Plus Vs Samsung Galaxy Note 8 camera shots as well as a video comparison between the cameras on both devices as a whole.
Friday was a huge day for Apple with the iPhone 8, iPhone 8 Plus, Apple TV 4K, and Apple Watch Series 3 all going on sale for the first time. Without doubt, though, the most anticipated of those releases were the two iPhones, even with the spectre of the iPhone X looming large over the pair of them.
Even so, the new iPhones are impressive devices in their own right and if it was not for the iPhone X arriving in November, the new releases would be even more well received than they have been. That is in part thanks to the impressive cameras that they possess. We already told you about camera quality benchmarker DxOMark updating its table to show the new iPhones at the top of the tree, ousting the Pixel from Google, and now two more sources of praise have appeared online.
The first of those is a comprehensive camera comparison by Tom’s Guide, which takes an iPhone 8 Plus and pits it against the best that Samsung has to offer in the Galaxy Note 8. Test shots are taken throughout a variety of real world situations and the results are interesting. It may not take a wild stab in the dark to guess that the iPhone 8 Plus fares well, but some of the photos need to be seen to be believed. Some of them show the Galaxy Note 8 in such a bad light – no pun intended – that we wonder exactly what was going on with those particular shots. See if you can pick them out, too.
The second source is YouTuber MrMobile. He reviewed, amongst other things, the quality of Apple’s new smartphone cameras. Again, he used a Galaxy Note 8 for comparison but also included LG’s V30. Again, Apple’s new iPhones stood up very well indeed, suggesting that once again, Apple has the camera technology down pat this time around.
The iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus are both available to buy now, with stock surprisingly easy to come by depending on which color and storage configuration you are looking for.
