looks interesting.  Got a 7+ a year ago and still in payments.  Probably will need to skip this phone.  perhaps I will get iPhone Xs next year.

Have a 6+ -- IS was actually a nice feature.

Considering an upgrade, but might wait one more cycle.

And keep in mind, we haven't seen the iPhone X in the flesh, tested, etc. yet.

Latest high-value phone has the best quality camera?

I'd be more surprised if it wasn't, than that it is.

Damn, this looks really nice! I really wonder how the X will perform. Apple claims that the camera is even better so I'll wait for the DXO review. :-)

Oh DxO, looking at their own subscores it becomes pretty clear that many of the android cameras actually have better image quality but DxO has decided to give a huge advantage for the zoom and pseudo-bokeh features.

The comments are worth reading. Apparently yet another DxO BS.

Anyone who buys a smartphone because they think the camera has any quality of zoom is delusional.  Same goes for bokeh.

On their Bokeh comparison, frankly, on my Smartphone I'd rather lose the bokeh and take the iPhone 8 version, which, at least doesn't look artificial.

The Pixel version is just too weird.  There are too many places, like over each of her shoulders, that are in focus, but at the same distance from the subject as other things that are blurred.  That isn't bokeh... it's magic wand select + Gaussian blur :D

 :)

My 6S is still doing fine, so I'll wait a year or two. Like many of you, I'm not so likely to upgrade a phone because of the camera.

I have shot 4K with the phone, and it is not bad. I used the extra resolution to let me zoom in during editing and produce a good-looking 720p video without any upscaling.
