Nokia 8 Scored Disappointingly on DxOMark Listing Report from DxOMark reads, “In terms of texture and noise, Nokia 8 noticeably lags behind other flagship phones. Fairly strong noise is visible in areas of plain color, even in bright light, and levels of detail are generally low, with a lot of blurring of fine detail and textures. As you would expect, detail decreases further in indoor and low-light shooting conditions. In addition, the Nokia suffers from a very noticeable loss of sharpness in the field, with strong softness often visible towards the edges of the frame. Most other artifacts are well-controlled, however.” “The performance of its camera module lags behind expectations. The Nokia 8 is capable of producing decent still images, but in many situations, it cannot match the image quality of the cameras in current high-end phones from most competitors,” the publication report thus concludes.
