More recently the iPhone 8 and 8 Plus camera scores were also published sooner after the launch.

Well, it didn’t happen with Galaxy Note 8 this time, and the camera experts are releasing the Note 8 camera results after over a month of the announcement. Now it seems like every next flagship is capable to stand above the other. Galaxy Note 8 is now “the best smartphone camera for zoom.” taking the a top spot shared with Apple’s iPhone 8 Plus.
