iPhone 8 Plus vs iPhone 7 Plus cameras compared: is there really much of a difference?

There’s no denying that the iPhone 8 Plus has the best camera ever put on an iPhone. After all, it is the latest and greatest iPhone model yet, and Apple has thrown in improvements on both the hardware and the software front. But really, what has changed?
Is the iPhone 8 camera dramatically better than the one on the iPhone 7, or is the gap between the two only marginal? Is there any real-life difference at all? These are the questions we wanted to answer, so we took the iPhone 8 Plus and the iPhone 7 Plus out for a quick shootout. Here is what we observed.

Real-life images of the Xiaomi Redmi Note 5 leak out: 18:9 display, dual cameras

One of the latest trends in the smartphone industry is throwing tall, 18:9 displays up front. For one reason ore another, some manufacturers claim they do that due to the obviously-impending arrival of 2:1 multimedia content whereas others are merely following suit for no explicit reason whatsoever. That said, one noteworthy upside of devices donning such display is simply how easier are they to handle compared to similarly-sized 16:9 devices. But we digress…

One of the possible newcomers to the 18:9 scene is none other than China’s Xiaomi, which is reportedly looking forward …

The Mate 10 Lite officially introduced as Huawei Maimang 6: four cameras, 5.9-inch 18:9 display

The Mate 10 is one of the last major smartphones to hit the market this year, a flagship that Huawei says it’s worth waiting for. There have already been lots of leaks about the Mate 10 and its many variations, but no official word on any of them.

Today, Huawei introduced the Maimang 6 in China, the company’s first smartphone to feature an 18:9 ratio display. We don’t usually report on devices that are exclusively available in China, but the Maimang 6 is expected to be introduced in the rest of the world as Huawei Mate 10 Lite or G10.

The Maimang 6 is now …

Alleged CAD renders of the Huawei Mate 10 Lite surface with a 16:9 screen and dual cameras

Huawei’s Mate 10 — or to be more specific, three different devices all bearing the name — is coming in just a month. So it’s not that surprising that we’re seeing an increasing amount of leaks about the series, though we still have very little info on the regular Mate 10, rather than its Pro and Lite siblings.

But today we seem to have another possible look at one of the three devices — the Mate 10 Lite — this time in (potato quality) CAD render format. Design-wise, it looks pretty consistent with the design we saw in OnLeaks’ schematics-based …

Apple is reportedly locking up sensors above 12MP for the cameras on the 2018 iPhone models

Apple is expected to raise the MP count for the cameras on its 2018 iPhone models. This is very much likely to occur following the report that the tech titan has booked all of the smartphone lens modules above 12MP that will be rolling off the assembly line at a new factory in Taiwan. The plant is owned by Largan Precision. Interestingly, Largan is allegedly the only company that makes modules for smartphone cameras above 12MP that can produce modules in the quantities that Apple requires.

Largan will be able to produce 600 million lens modules monthly at the new facility, which is six times …

Samsung Galaxy Note 8 vs iPhone 7 Plus, Galaxy S8+ cameras compared

Studies show that most of the people who opened this article will skip straight to the conclusion part. This makes you a cool person if you’re still reading this paragraph, and you probably smell nice too!

But does the Galaxy Note 8 take good photos? That’s one of the questions we aim to answer here. And we’ll compare it against the iPhone 7 Plus and the Galaxy S8+ while we’re at it.

Before we proceed, there’s a few things we should clarify. For starters, keep in mind that we’ll focus solely on these three phones’ main cameras. Telephoto lens shots haven’t …

Note 8 is the first phone with optical stabilization on both cameras

Samsung just got on the stage to extol the virtues of the Note 8’s new dual camera, and, among the adjustable focus pre- and post-shot, the 2x zoom, and other shenanigans already done with dual cameras on other phones, it slipped one unique feature in a jiffy. It turns out that the Note 8 is the first major phone that has optical image stabilization on both camera sensors. 

Thus, the 12MP wide angle lens and the 12MP telephoto one both have their system of springs and shocks that compensate for hand movements hundreds of times per second, making …

Nokia 8 cameras explained: how does the dual camera work and what is a "#Bothie"

The Nokia 8 is here and it features a very interesting camera setup: three identical cameras, all with the same, 13-megapixel sensor. Two of them are on the back: one is the main color camera with optical image stabilization and the secondary one is a monochrome sensor, while the third one is… the front camera!
But first let’s start with the camera specs:
13-megapixel rear color camera sensor (likely Sony IMX 258 sensor) with 1.12-micron pixels, 1/3.06 sensor size, Optical Image Stabilization, f/2.0 Zeiss lens13-megapixel …

The Samsung Galaxy Note 8 phablet is expected to feature a dual-camera system in back. A report published Monday out of South Korea gives us some more information about the two camera module expected to be found on the back of the unit.

Both will feature OIS and 2X optical zoom.

The Samsung Galaxy Note 8 will be the first handset to come from the manufacturer with a dual-camera setup. Following …
