Galaxy S8 camera gets a DxOMark rating of 88, same as the Galaxy S7

Samsung has been leading the way in smartphone photography for a while now, and the Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 edge were the top performers on DxOMark’s charts last year until they were bested by the Google Pixel and Pixel XL. DxOMark has now published its results for the Galaxy S8 and S8+ and given Samsung’s newest flagships a score of 88, the same as the S7 and S7 edge.

The Galaxy S8 improves in a lot of areas where the Galaxy S7 and S7 edge weren’t so great, and according to DxOMark, the S8 offers “excellent autofocus, accurate white balance, and very effective noise reduction” in still photography. Where it falters is in low-light conditions, where the S8 can’t maintain the same level of sharpness as its competitors. As we pointed out in our review, the S8 does offer increased sharpness in tough lighting conditions compared to the S7, but there’s still some improvement to be had in this regard.

Video recording is where the Galaxy S8 comes out at the top, matching what the competition has to offer. DxOMark found exposure and dynamic range in videos to be “very good,” but found the stabilization system (the S8 offers both optical and electronic stabilization in 4K videos) and color rendering to be excellent. Autofocus was also found to be very fast, which isn’t surprising as the S8 features Dual Pixel autofocus like its predecessor.

Samsung might not have received the top score for its new flagships, but that shouldn’t sway you away from the Galaxy S8 and S8+, as these phones have amazing cameras that work well in all lighting conditions. Furthermore, Samsung’s camera app offers a great user experience in terms of overall features. The selfie camera has also received considerable improvement, and at the end of the day, there is no reason to believe your S8 or S8+ is any less capable than other phones when it comes to smartphone photography.

I don’t know but for me the S8s camera has been improved alot especially when it comes to colors and image processing… and for me the battery and the speaker has been excelent for me… the speaker has a good and high volume and the sound is deep and i think this is very good… so yeah it is better than the S7 and especially than the S6…

Yes, I’ve noticed it too. Cleaner, less noisy outputs with more detail, and also, none of the S7′s tendency to skew very warm white balance wise.

Is it just me, or does this not make any sense? So Samsung received the top score, but that doesn’t mean I shouldn’t buy it??

What a load of bs… MKBHD did a blind photo comparison of the latest smartphones on the market and S8 easily comes out on top! Why does putting a yellowy tint on everything make it more “true to life”?
