Recently the Apple iPhone 8 Plus had climbed to the top, with 96 points in photography and 94 points overall, but a new smartphone has again set a new limit, the Samsung Galaxy Note 8.
For many users who are fans of photography, DxOMark is possibly one of the best sources to find a detailed analysis of the cameras of the major smartphones.
Over the past few years, several have been considered as the best camera models on the market, such as the HTC U11, Google Pixel, Samsung Galaxy S7 or Sony Xperia X, with the fight for the top being constant.
Last week, DxOMark launched the iPhone 8 Plus review, labeling it the best camera on a smartphone, with the Apple device rising to the top of the overall standings with 94 points and setting a new maximum in photography with 96 points.

The Samsung Galaxy Note 8 has already been evaluated and has gained a rating of 94 points, thus equaling the iPhone 8 Plus at the top of the overall ranking table. However, if we only analyze the photographic component, we are facing the best camera in the market, having obtained 100 points in photography.

According to DxOMark, in addition to its photographic quality, the main highlight of Note 8 is its 2x optical zoom and 4x or 8x digital zoom, which obtained very positive results. At this point, Samsung reached a score of 66 points, while the iPhone 8 Plus stood for the 51 points.
