The Galaxy S8 is no doubt an improvement over the Galaxy S7/S7 edge. It gets a fresh new design that enables a large display to be fitted on a smaller form factor. When it comes to the main camera, many were somewhat disappointed that the main camera remains virtually the same. It gets a 12MP dual-pixel camera with the same f/1.7 aperture.
Smartphone cameras are getting better in each iteration and the latest Galaxy S7 edge continues to raise the bar higher. Although it was downsized from 16MP to 12MP, the new Galaxy gets a brighter f/1.7 lens, larger pixels and faster focus thanks to its new Dual-Pixel sensor.
DxOMark, the camera benchmark authority has just named the Galaxy S7 edge as the new smartphone champion with an overall score of 88. This knocks out the Xperia Z5, which they previously crowned as the best camera on a smartphone.
