Google Pixel 2 Sets Record for Smartphone Camera Quality, Beats iPhone 8 Plus [Report]

Posted by · 6366 views · Translate
Google's new Pixel 2 has set a record for smartphone camera quality beating the iPhone 8 Plus and Samsung Galaxy Note 8 by four points, according to DxOMark.

The Google Pixel 2 is the top-performing mobile device camera we’ve tested, with a record-setting overall score of 98. Impressively, it manages this despite having “only” a single-camera design for its main camera. Its top scores in most of our traditional photo and video categories put it ahead of our previous (tied) leaders, the Apple iPhone 8 Plus and the Samsung Galaxy Note 8, despite the Pixel 2 coming in lower in the new Zoom and Bokeh categories. The Pixel 2 is also a major step forward from the Pixel (which was our top scorer when it was released a year ago), moving from 90 to 98.

If there are smart phones scoring 98 already DXO hasn’t given much room for improvement

This is all hog was. No matter how much they talk about it. Of these photos scraping a true high end DSLR please stop typing nonsense.

I am not sure if it's the same girl in both photos, I think she is. But amazing how different she looks and much hotter in second set of pictures.

How can this be of relevance to the end user? Maybe the Pixel landed barely there better quality on parts of photos, but did worse on some other aspects... Ultimately what defines great photos from poor snaps are the skills of the photographer, lighting positioning, camera placement, etc.
