The Samsung Galaxy Note 8 has tied the impressive DxOMark score achieved by the iPhone 8 Plus and become the first smartphone camera to achieve a score of 100 for still images.

Achieving an overall DxOMark mobile score of 94 points, the Note 8 becomes the new joint leader for smartphone image quality alongside Apple’s iPhone 8 Plus. A phenomenal photo sub-score that breaks new ground as the first smartphone to hit 100 points makes the Note 8 the current class-leader for stills, thanks to excellent zoom quality, good noise reduction and detail preservation, as well as fast and accurate autofocus. The Note 8 doesn’t quite match the same heights for video, where its sub-score of 84 is a little behind the best performers, such as the Google Pixel with 91 points, or the iPhone 8 Plus and the HTC U11, both with 89. It’s still a very capable device for video, however, with its key strengths being good exposure with fast convergence, fast and stable autofocus, as well as good noise reduction, white balance, and color rendering.

The Note 8 features two 12MP sensors. The first camera has a wide-angle 26mm f/1.7 lens and the second has a 52mm telephoto f/2.4 lens for 2X optical zoom shots. The device features PDAF autofocus, optical image stabilization, Auto HDR, and a 6.3-inch Super AMOLED display.
