If you haven't noticed yet, today is the day of iPhone 8. As consumers in many countries become the first to get their hands on Ma's new smartphones, various reviews, durability tests, benchmarks, disassemblies and more begin to invade the vast and frightening world of the internet.

One of the most awaited tests, however, has just come out and with extremely encouraging news for Apple. THE DxO Labs, a well-known photographic software company that does some of the most respected camera and lens performance testing, today released the results of the iPhones 8/8 Plus and has an impressive verdict: in the firm's judgment, the two gadgets have the best cameras already placed on smartphones.

The advantage, as expected, was the iPhone 8 Plus, which won over 94 points on DxOMark; his younger brother got a score of 92. Both are the two largest ever recorded, the crown holders were Google Pixel and HTC U11, which had 90 points. The iPhone 7 Plus and 7 are the following in the ranking, with scores 88 and 85, respectively.

DxO Labs has stated that photos taken with the two new iPhones are “impressive”, feature accurate color reproduction and excellent level of detail; HDR processing, according to the test, would also be greatly improved over that of iPhones 7/7 Plus. The iPhone 8 Plus specifically still has the best effect. bokeh (that of Portrait Mode, which blurs the background of the photo) is already found on a smartphone, analysts say.

Below are two comparisons made by the lab, both in the following order: iPhone 8, iPhone 8 Plus, Google Pixel, and iPhone 7 Plus.

Okay, it may be my poorly trained eye, but only I found the Pixel results better in both situations?
