Galaxy Note8 vs. iPhone 8 Plus

Camera shootout blind vote

Those of you following our Facebook page are probably aware that we’re working on a camera shootout between the iPhone 8 Plus and the Galaxy Note8. Well, we’re getting there, it’s just a few finishing touches away from publication and it should go live some time tomorrow.

In the meantime, we figured we’d ask you to cast your vote which photos you like best without revealing the phone identities just yet. It’s a blind vote so to speak.

We’ve picked a few 1:1 crops from the samples we shot for the article and we’re presenting them to you for some initial pixel peeping.

We’re starting with a few different types of foliage, two of them real, the others painted on a snail sculpture. Hover over the photos to compare the two crops and then cast your vote below.

Scene 1, 1:1 crops: daylight, wide-angle

Moving on to the telephoto cameras to bring some roof tiles closer. It’s not just about detail though, look at the shadows to compare the noise properties of the two phones.

Scene 2, 1:1 crops: daylight, telephoto

We’ve also prepped a set of low-light crops – believe it or not, these were taken at the exact same time (and there’s a yellow van to prove it).

Scene 3, 1:1 crops: low light, wide-angle

And the final one is not a crop but the entire scene (obviously downscaled to fit in here) to get a general idea of colors and exposure.

Scene 4, entire frame, downscaled: daylight, wide-angle

You have about 24 hours to cast your votes. We’ll reveal the results tomorrow, and we’ll follow up with the detailed comparison. Until then!
