I've been waiting for quite some time to see how good the iPhone 8 Plus performs in low-light. Yesterday, September 22nd, DxOMark has published their iPhone 8 Plus camera review (talking about the rear-facing cameras here). I had a good feeling that we are going to see some great performance here...

Slow sync flash

The slow sync flash can keep the shutter longer and allow the ambient light to feel in the background, making flash iamges more natural and less contrasty.

Unique portrait lighting and portrait mode

The portrait mode and portrait lighting is modes that makes the iPhone 8 Plus stand out from the iPhone 8. It can achieve great looking Bokeh effect (background blur) an can apply different light effects to faces to improve your portrait pictures.

Both the iPhone X and the iPhone 8 Plus come with a dual cameras at the back of the phone. Now, the main difference between the two is that the iPhone X has a faster f/2.4 aperture telephoto lens compared to the iPhone 8 Plus that has a telephoto lens with an f/2.8 aperture. Again, this is just for...

Portrait Lighting beta

The Portrait Lighting features is still in beta, but just so you know that it quite quirky. I've seen some tests done by CNET and the results where sometimes inaccurate; the algorithm had troubles applying Stage Light around the hair and shoulder area of the subject.I recommend watching that part in...

Slow aperture for the front camera

The iPhone 8 Plus comes with an f/2.2 aperture lens for the front camera, which is very disappointing. The resolution i now 7MP, so this might suggest larger pixels compared to previous version, yet, f2.2 will limit its low light capability.

Rated IP67 for water and dust resistance

The new iPhone 8+ is IP67 certified, which means that it's protected against dust and can be submerged underwater in 1m depth for up to 30 minutes. This means that you can use it in the rain and nothing will happen to it if you accidentally spill liquids on it.

Looks the same as last year's version

The new iPhone 8 Plus looks the same as its predecessor. I was very disappointed to see the same design and assuming Apple to innovate this time around in 2017. I think that Apple just put all its efforts in making the iPhone X stand out, and this is why there is no change.

Only $50 more than the iPhone 7 Plus

One of the great things about the iPhone 8 Plus is related to its price. The 8+ costs only $50 more than the iPhone 7 Plus. I'm sure that the 7+ will get a more significant price cut very soon, still, this is a good price for new comers and those searching to upgrade.
