The iPhone 8 recorded a score of 92 making it the highest rated single smartphone camera yet. On the other hand, the iPhone 8 Plus has a score of 94 which is the highest on any smartphone as of this writing. Those scores are significantly higher than the previous record of 90 by HTC U11.

DxOMark's conclusion for the score of iPhone 8

While we haven’t retested every smartphone using our new protocols, we have retested some of the best, and the Apple iPhone 8 improves over all of them, including the Google Pixel and the HTC U11 - the two best performers until now. Apple has brought some impressive image processing technology to bear on the images that the iPhone 8’s relatively small sensor captures, and it shows in better exposure, improved dynamic range, and lower noise than the iPhone 7. Only its bigger and more expensive dual-camera sibling, the Apple iPhone 8 Plus, tops it on our DxOMark Mobile charts.

DxOMark's conclusion for the score of iPhone 8 Plus

Overall, the Apple iPhone 8 Plus is an excellent choice for the needs of nearly every smartphone photographer. It features outstanding image quality, zoom for those needing to get closer to their subjects, and an industry-leading Portrait mode for artistic efforts. It is at the top of our scoring charts in nearly every category - and in particular, its advanced software allows it to do an amazing job of capturing high-dynamic range scenes and images in which it can recognize faces.

However, DxOMark used a different and unclear testing method for the scores of the new iPhones. I'm not saying that they're not great in performance, but DxOMark failed to explain how they got the scores of the new iPhones.

Previously, DxOMark got the score of 90 for HTC U11 by getting the average score for their different testing categories.

But, you'll only get a score of 71 if you'll sum up the average score of iPhone 8 Plus.

What do you think guys?
