DxOMark has recorded some color cast in low light conditions and some indoor shots. Autofocus issues were also recorded in still photos. On the other side, video recording also had some troubles like exposure issues and visible noise in low-light conditions.

Taking the second spot, iPhone 8’s 92 points divides in 93 for still photos and 90 for video recording. Other way around, you can consider this on the top slot among devices with single-camera units. Apple has already told that rear camera of iPhone 8 is identical to the main wide-angle rear camera of iPhone 8 Plus.
