The noise reduction of the iPhone 8 looks extremely synthetic. Not good for pixel peepers. Just look at the lights next to the soccer pitch. Many artifacts!
P9 User, 30 Sep 2017look at the xp1 performance on geekbench shame!flagship smartphone's benchmark is irrelevant at this point.
Kudos to you GSMArena for photo comparisons. Always using full resolution, untouched images. The same locations for easy comparison. Great job!
Xperia and Galaxy S8 camera looked much more natural. The iPhone camera has a yellow tint, an issue that was already present with the iPhone 5 camera. Grey does not look grey with iPhones, rather beige, that's why iPhone cameras often have unnatural colors. Moreover the iPhone 8 looked oversaturated, the third image looks awful.
I compared the iPhone 8 Plus camera with a Nexus 5x which has 99% the same image quality as the Pixel in HDR+ On mode. The Nexus 5x had much better dynamic range with HDR+ On than the iPhone 8 Plus with HDR. Moreover the colors of the Nexus 5x with HDR+ were much more natural than the iPhone, for instance when I took a photo of a wooden table. The sky also looks more natural with the Nexus 5x. For instance the sky is grey, but with the iPhone 8 Plus it was blue.
In the old time iPhone superior hardware and innovative feature justify the high price and locked ios but now they just trailing behind android spec and android trailing iPhone prices. Sad.
GSM Arena, corner softness please look at the samples again, the right side of these images is blurry
So much hype about the A11 bionic chip. Milli-seconds faster in real life performance doesnt count as a more enjoyable experience. We need more on the productivity side that is why note8 is still a better option
Anonymous, 30 Sep 2017I do not understand why a few sites like PA give so much credits to bokeh.
Whats the point o... moreBravo! Same here, it's just annoying. If you want a picture of someone with an interesting scene behind him, bokeh is pointless. Also, why pay more just to have blurry photos? It's just fashion, I hope. I started watching Handmaid's Tale and the main actress is always so much in focus that the actors behind her might as well be wooden dummies, can't see them. Luckily they don't always use it, but it's annoying.
Anyway, nice hardware, great camera, but still iOS limitations and mono sound in video recordings. Mono. Sound. The same thing I commented last year. Come on, Apple. It's 2017.

Whats the point of going somewhere public then you want to defocus background?
If you do not want the background to be seen, just stand by a white wall.
