During the comparison, it was found that the s8/s8+ were faster and responsive than its predecessors. In addition, S8/S8+ bears enhanced filters, augmented reality and stickers. The newbies also employ multi-frame image processing. In this processing method, the camera takes three pictures and merges the details to create a better one. The 8 MP front camera on S8/S8+ is privileged with autofocus, unlike the fixed focus and Auto HDR in S7/S7 edge.

2iPhone 8 and 8 Plus

The iPhone 8 and 8 Plus launched only a few days ago. Like the 7 model, the 8 shares its lens with the 8 Plus which like the 7 Plus has dual cameras.

As per the iPhone 8 Plus, the device’s pricing starts at Rs. Rs 112,500 and buyers won’t have to compromise on any aspect of the smartphone, not especially on its cameras. The iPhone 8 plus sports dual 12-megapixel cameras, one working as a wide-angle lens and the other as a telephoto lens. It scored a total of 94 as its DXOmark rating. But enough talk about its specifications, let’s get on to how the dual cameras perform in real life.

The cameras of the new iPhone have yet again set a high standard. The 8 Plus is equipped with the portrait lighting feature with quite a lot of depth. Even the front-camera on the 8 is capable of taking portrait pictures now.  However, the front-facing portrait mode is still not as good as Google Pixel 2 XL’s. I’m not saying that the selfie shooter of these devices doesn’t live up to its mark, the selfies come out best-in-class like a true flagship, but Apple could have made it a lot better on the portrait part. This is fixable with a software update, though.

The rear cameras of the 8 Plus take sharper and more vibrant colored images as compared to the ones on the 7 Plus. All the images it takes are saturated and colorful under ample lighting. Under low lighting, the cameras, due to the 1.7 aperture of the wide-angle lens, take quite decent images.The software processing of the A11 bionic chip has a lot to play for the images the iPhone 8 Plus takes. Oh ,and it takes 4k video at 60fps and 108p videos at 240fps!

1Samsung Galaxy Note 8

Although the smartphones with the dual-camera setup are growing like a mushroom in the smartphone arena, Samsung has always been keen on improving the camera performance using a single wide-angle lens. But with the Galaxy Note 8, Samsung included a dual-camera, which is growing like an inescapable tradition.

The dual-camera setup includes two 12MP sensors provided on the back of the phone. It embraces two lenses with different focal lengths and apertures and one being the telephoto (f/2.4) lens and another being the regular wide-angle (f/1.7) lens. The wide-angle lens has a higher quality sensor and the large aperture inlets more amount of light as compared to the telephoto lens. Also, the large sensor and large pixel size blended with dual-pixel autofocus help to pack in more amount of details in the image. The dual-camera setup also captures the images with focused subjects and blurred backgrounds often pronounced as Bokeh effects.

Low light shots also come with free of grains and pack the details in abundance. However, the Bokeh effects seem to lack refined edges on some shots. Another impressive feature with the Note 8 dual camera setup is that both the lenses are assisted by OIS. The rear camera setup is capable of taking zoomed in images without loss in quality: optically up to 2x and digitally up to 10x. On the front, there is a single 8MP camera with an aperture of f/1.7. The wide aperture and large sensor and pixel size inlets light in abundance packed with plenty of details. It too replicates true tone and vivid colors and produces social media ready images.

Rear camera Dual 12MP (f/1.7, PDAF, 1/2.55″ sensor size, 1.4 µm pixel size + f/2.4, AF, 1/3.6″ sensor size, 1.0 µm pixel size), autofocus, 2x optical zoom, dual-LED (dual tone) flash
