The Galaxy Note 8 and iPhone X were announced within one month of each other. The specs for the dual-rear cameras on each phone caught my attention because they were so similar. The following are several dozen moments and scenes each photographed by the Note 8 and iPhone X.
Portrait Lighting Mode shots typically have sharp focus on the subject's face and even focus fall off from the foreground to the background that's akin to that of a DSLR. Here the iPhone over blurs a chunk of hair on the the left side of the photo.
Live Focus photos from the Note 8 look softer, but sometimes that can be more flattering for people's skin. Focus fall off is almost nonexistent and the subject looks more "cut out" from the background.
