Apple's iPhone 8 Plus has the world's 'best smartphone camera', according to DxOMark

DxOMark's detailed review notes, "The Apple iPhone 8 Plus is the best-performing mobile device camera we have ever tested". A breakdown of the scores shows that in the video-recording department, the larger iPhone obtains a score of 89. However, now the top two spots are no longer held by Android phones, with the top two spots now going to the iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus.

The iPhone 8 Plus has scored 94 points, based on an average of its image and video scores, putting it two points ahead of the iPhone 8 and four points over the Google Pixel and HTC U11, which share third place. Its Photo score of 96 is also a new record, blowing past the Pixel's 90. The third position is now a tie between the HTC U11 and Google Pixel, with scores of 90. DxOMark is quick to point out that the former is almost a year old now, so there's still time for the Pixel 2 to catch up or defeat its Apple rival. DxOMark says that iPhone 8 builds on "excellent performance of the iPhone 7 family with even better results in bright light".

As for issues pointed out by the benchamarking site, iPhone 8 Plus' camera takes s bit of a time to focus in both bright and low light.

These devices are also the first mainstream phones to shoot 4K video at an astounding 60 frames per second so if you want a phone that achieves stellar results in both video and imaging categories, look no further than these.

Opioids: CVS Imposes Prescription Limits to Combat Epidemic
Ford says KDMC has been working on similar ways to fight the epidemic and says this announcement by CVS could definitely help with their mission.

In terms of optics, the new iPhone 8 has the same 12MP sensor with an f/1.8 aperture with a few software upgrades and OIS.

Here's one example shot taken on an iPhone 8 Plus. The iPhone 8 Plus has a dual camera system like last year's iPhone 7 Plus but with major tweaks to the inside.

DxOMark recently overhauled it testing methodology to reflect modern smartphone camera features such as dual cameras, Bokeh effects, and more. HEIF is fundamentally the same as JPEG, yet gives better pressure to comparable picture quality, so the change influences the specimen to picture record sizes bigger than they were when clicked.
