Samsung Galaxy A8 2018 vs Galaxy S8: camera comparison

The new Samsung Galaxy A8 2018 is a phone that is surprisingly similar to the flagship Galaxy S8, yet it costs slightly less and has its fingerprint scanner at a much more sensible and easy-to-reach position below the camera.
But one big question about the Galaxy A8 2018 remains: how good of a camera does it have?
That’s what we have set out to learn, and we took the Galaxy A8 2018 and the Galaxy S8 along for the ride to compare the difference in image quality.

Size comparison: Sony Xperia XA2 and XA2 Ultra vs other midrangers

So, Sony has just revealed its two new midrangers. And, just as usual, the manufacturer has evolved its design language, but ever so slightly. The XA2 duo looks modern… yet classic. Of course, we are talking about the rectangular look and the meaty top and bottom bezels. But, at the very least, the XA line has always been about super-thin side bezels and that doesn’t change with the XA2 and XA2 Ultra.

So, they are a 5.2-inch phone and a 6-inch phablet, respectively. And those are not 18:9, super-narrow displays, no… They are good ol’, classic 16:9 monsters. So, how do the new Sony midrangers …

Specs comparison: Xperia XA2 Ultra vs ZenFone 4 vs Moto Z2 Play

So, Sony’s new midrangers are out – the Xperia XA2 and Xperia XA2 Ultra. With a mix between premium design and mid-tier hardware, they will try to please the selfie-lovers that like to have a nice phone on hand without necessarily breaking the bank.

Let’s take a look at the XA2 Ultra, for example — a wide-angle, 8 MP selfie camera is next to a 16 MP, OIS-assisted selfie camera, and there’s a LED flash up front as well. Obviously aimed at the selfie-loving youngsters, the handset still has a lot to offer under the hood as well — a massive battery, a good amount of RAM, generous storage… …

Apple iPhone X vs Google Pixel 2 XL: camera comparison

Comparing two of the best camera phones out there is no easy task: the iPhone X and the Pixel 2 XL are both excellent, but just as much as they are excellent, they are also different.
The differences start in the very camera setup: the iPhone X has a dual rear camera, one a wide-angle 28mm f/1.8 lens and the other, a slightly longer, “tele” lens at 52mm and f/2.4, both optically stabilized while the Pixel 2 XL only has one camera on its back, a 27mm, f/1.8 shooter that also has optical image stabilization.
What is …

First in line is, needless to say, the processor’s foundry masters from Samsung, with its Galaxy S9, but Xiaomi, LG, and others, will certainly be lining up soon thereafter.

OnePlus 5T vs OnePlus 5 low-light camera comparison: prepare for a plot twist

Dual cameras come in many flavors. Some phones gain a dramatically wider field of view, while others go for optical zoom and the ability to take artsy portrait shots. The latter model was pioneered by Apple on the iPhone 7 Plus and was later adopted by many other smartphone makers, OnePlus included. Earlier this year, the company launched its OnePlus 5 smartphone with a secondary camera at the back providing optical zoom of 1.6X. 
Fast-forward to present day, and the OnePlus 5T is here – better than the 5 in a number of ways, but …

Google Pixel 2 vs iPhone X, Galaxy Note 8 portrait camera comparison: is one camera really enough?

Instagram would have been super silly during the Renaissance years, don’t you agree? Seriously: imagine dinner being served, then an artist is summoned to draw a painting of your dish, after which a carriage arrives to pick up the painting and deliver it to your crush. And then you start eating your pork belly soup. Luckily, we have smartphones – smartphones that can not only take great photos, but also make these photos more fun and better at grabbing attention; smartphones that have Portrait Mode, developed to make the subject stand out by applying artistic blur (basically …
