Thanks for your comment. While you can certainly improve your photos afterwards,
the focus of this face-off was to determine the image quality straight out of the camera in auto mode.
Cameras, lenses and apertures and shutter speeds (the feature with the least amount of control in phone cams) are fixed and really represent no particular advantage to either camera. Evaluate the post processing, there's the difference. Everyone fiddles with their post, which in-phone editing package is best?
There's nothing biased about this review. In fact, for at least a few photos I polled our staff,
not telling them which phone produced which photos. Also, DxO Mark is only one measure of quality,
and their numbers are meaningless to most people.
This review was so biased. I would rather have natural looking pictures with more details. DxO Mark tells it all with a 98 for the Pixel 2 XL and a 94 for the iPhone 8 Plus. You really need to disclose that Apple it's paying you for this review and that is why you put it on top.
It's true I'm not a photographer. But I wokred with photographers in putting together this comparison and gathered their input. Not all of the iPhone shots were overexposed but some were, especially Lego shot. And as I mentioned the Pixel 2 has a great camera. The screen is another matter.
Your obviously not a photographer. All the shots that you have the win to the iPhone because they were brighter and pooped more where all overexposed. The pixel had better dynamic range and much more detail. In fact the only picture that I would have given win to the iPhone was the fountain one. For whatever reason that one looked better on the iPhone. Lego man alone tells it all. Pixel should have won this hands down.
Actually I find the Pixel's shot of the Lego Man sharper whereas the iPhone seems washed out in reflections. I also see the zoom shots with the Pixel being the clear winner due to the iPhones being too bright and washed out. Both take great photos for a phone. I don't see a reason to buy one or the other based on just camera operation. I'll take Android over iOs any day.
I will say the iPhone 8's camera quality is comparable to a dslr. Alot of people will complain about the aperture/capture time but if you download FiLMiC Pro your going to be able to fine tune all your settings and get the best results.
