Engadget: "In most daylight shots, the iPhone 8 and 8 Plus captured more detailed photos than Samsung's Galaxy Note 8. The differences were subtle, but definitely there. ..... Given Samsung's excellent work with its cameras, the fact that Apple's camera is just as good -- if not a little better in some ways -- is something to behold. Time: "Apple's smartphones are slightly better at taking pictures than Samsung's Galaxy Note 8, too. While Samsung's cameras are top-notch, I found that photos taken with the Note 8 were in certain cases a little washed out compared to those taken on the iPhone. When I shot the same portrait on both phones, I noticed the iPhone 8 Plus's image showed more facial details and more accurately represented the subject's skin tone. Samsung's photo was slightly brighter and made the subject's skin look smoother, but the iPhone's camera showed the subject more as they look in real life. The iPhone 8 Plus also preserved more detail in the dimly lit scenario, which you can see by looking at the brick wall in the background in the sample shots below." WSJ: "A larger, faster, sensor and new processing helps the iPhone 8 capture more saturation and contrast—sunsets are less hazy and faces look sharper. In low-light situations, it retains more detail than the Note 8. It was as if all the shots had been given a boost in Instagram. And while I have avoided using the flash on past iPhones, the 8’s was smart enough to actually improve my shots." CNN: "In our tests, the iPhone 8 photos showed noticeably different colors from the iPhone 7. The images had better color saturation and more depth. Low light images had a bit less noise as well."
