HTC U-11 comes with a multi-axis optical and electronic stabilization system and a fast auto focus and promises sharp shots and stutter-free videos. For a more dynamic exposure range, the camera and video capabilities with HDR boost without delay, with an increase of white balance, a significant noise reduction and an excellent detail preservation have been improved.

DxOMark praises the fast auto focus, especially in bright light, the good detail reproduction both indoor and outdoor scenes and good exposure. The white balance is usually actually pleasant, colour reproduction is good. The noise is relatively low even in low light conditions. The Flash does a good job. A slight bluish cast, as well as low noise is occasionally recognizable at some outdoor shots.

for video recordings of fast and accurate auto-focus, as well as the highly effective stabilization impress. The camera of HTC delivers here a good exposure, a good white balance and good values in the image noise. The limited dynamism was criticized in highly dynamic scenes. There are slight loss of detail, with panning image used and light shades of color in low light conditions.

the Galaxy S8 could improve in comparison to the S7 in many areas, in which the Galaxy S7 has presented itself sometimes not quite so strong. So, DxOMark on the S8 praises an excellent auto focus, a precise white balance and a very effective noise reduction. The camera of the S8 even in low light conditions allows himself occasional weaknesses, the S8 achieved here not quite the sharpness of the competition. The values are better compared to the S7, but still air is up to some competitors.

video recordings the Galaxy S8 has with the nose forward. DxOMark evaluated the exposure and dynamic range for videos with “very good”, the stabilization system (the S8 offers both an optical as an electronic stabilization at 4K-Videos) and the color reproduction rated DxOMark even awarded. The auto focus also presents itself very quickly because the S8 has a dual pixel auto focus as already the S7.

Samsung has although not the maximum number of points for its new flagships retracted, yet the two devices have excellent cameras that deliver a decent performance under all lighting conditions. Samsung has made lots of improvements to the Selfie camera. When it comes to Smartphone photography, the S8 are the other in nothing. The Samsung cameras present themselves as a whole also user friendly.

In extended CNET camera test by October had to Apple’s iPhone 7 plus Google pixel XL beaten. The pixel XL impressed especially when shooting with low light conditions. Also colour reproduction and sharpness were convincing. Overall, the tester certify an excellent camera technique two counterparties. Hardly any differences are visible in many situations. Often, the personal taste then decide first and second place. For portrait photos is however iPhone 7 plus clear that better suited. When shooting low-light, however, falls the choice on the Google phone. If brighter colors and a sharper background are desirable, that also offers pixel advantages.
