Now when a phone scores lower rating than a first Nokia flagship in a long time ( first Android one), I suppose there is something that's really wrong in that case

In most cameras manual mode you have selective focus, to create bokeh background effect. It is real bokeh.
Shame dxo doesnt even test manual features on phone cameras, but does some extra effect, out of automode, on iphones....
Somewhat selective circumstantial protocols now they have.
If we will remove iPhone branding, call it Motorola, or Nokia for the same price - hipe will be huge. And everyone will defend price. By the way, Motorola z2 force with outdated design and literally nothing special costs even higher. And nobody cares. Overhiped v30 will have no support, has bad screen but nobody cares it's even pricier than iPhone.
Verne, 30 Sep 2017Normal mode is Photo mode ... you have to select Portrait mode to get it.So, dxo score protocol now actually includes...effects mode?
They added a protocol for an effect mode on iphone.
But that effect has been on some phones over 3 years now.
Why doesnt dxo test that effect, called Background defocus, on other phones, but only main camera bokeh?
Why Nothing Mentioned about AR!!

If you want wired fast charging, you need to get a USB-C to lightning cable. Then you need a USB-C port to plug it in to (which is a more expensive and complex beast than most other USB type A ports supplying power).
If you've recently purchased a computer, I believe you use one of their USB-C ports to charge your phone.
The lightning port is an ambidextrous port and preceded the USB-C port. In fact, its existence may have inspired the USB-C port.
Now your last statement AFAICT violates the posting rules, and makes me think the only reason you're here is to troll.
I keep hearing the term sheep used to describe fans of Apple products.
Sheep are presumably called that because they mindlessly follow a pack and make mindless bleating noises.
The closest thing I hear to bleating comes from those who ignore objective tests and carefully weighed reviews, and relentlessly bleat their repetitive slogans.
P9 User, 30 Sep 2017i don't think this phone will sell like hotcakes, given the fact that the X is about to relea... moreMost processors can do the job for email or normal photography, but when you get to intense computational needs like real-time computational photography, gaming, video editing/transcoding, or AR (and Google's trying to get ARCore together for some unfathomable and I'm sure highly original reason) you'll need every erg of computational power you can muster.
This one pretty much narrows down peoples opinions about Apples new phones.
When Apple decides to stop stealing people and offer them a complete package I will consider buying from them.
They are already overpriced and they give you a garbage 1A power adapter? and force you to pay another $100 for fast charging adapter from them. and at least $50 Adapter if third party.
and what as well ? the stupid ugly lightning port and ignoring USB C port just to sell you HDMI cable for $100
get lost apple no one cares about your products but sheeps. true it is nice and the IOS is nice , but stealing my money like that is not acceptable at all.
MdN8, 30 Sep 2017Bravo! Same here, it's just annoying. If you want a picture of someone with an interesting sce... moreThe real question is... Can that bokeh be turned off? Or is it mandatory?
I dont want blurred bacgrounds all the time, in fact mostly I dont want them. That is what Background defocus is there for, as an option, an effect, not mandatory effect...
damn, the a11 is a monster
AnonD-524500, 30 Sep 2017Hmm Xperia daylight images are bestAnd low light images are bad because of no ois (but great on tripod)
Anonymous, 30 Sep 2017I do not understand why a few sites like PA give so much credits to bokeh. Whats the point o... moreIt give your pictures a professional look and seperate the subject from background and looks pleasing compared to boring white wall (seriously how will a white wall make your pictures look good)
Clearly daylight images of xz1 compact are better than both S8 and 8 plus look at the text on the van far right in samples and foilage
AnonD-66340, 30 Sep 2017Look at Samsung Benchmarks and then, see it lag and hang :D SHAME!look at how you construct you sentence, SHAME! :)
What a shitty upgrade on the battery front, when the iphone 6S Plus has better endurance. Why didn't they put in a 3100 or 3300 mAh in this one? It's baffling.
denadapast, 30 Sep 2017but smartphone of the year is...Samsung Galaxy Note 8They announced it before the launch of iPhone 8 in India :)
P9 User, 30 Sep 2017look at the xp1 performance on geekbench shame!Look at Samsung Benchmarks and then, see it lag and hang :D SHAME!
