Peter Bendheim: Apple hate is so hard to understand.
When Apple brings out a new phone, Android users are out in force. Why? I imagine they bought a shiny Samsung or similar to save cash.
Now they have used it, they realise that while Apple doesn't change the world every 5 minutes, what Apple makes works, is intuitive, is a highly refined product, that is durable. Their face recognition isn't duped by a mere photo, unlike some phones.They will never admit it, but deep inside they know they made a mistake to save a few bucks. They resent everything Apple, not just the phones.
Pawn and second-hand electronic stores are full of Samsung and similar devices. Why?
Why does a phone get people so riled up that a test result must have been a bribe?
Are people so insecure about their purchase they have to defend it at all costs? Maybe worrying about the US and North Korea might be a better way of expending anxiety. Especially if you are a Samsung fan, considering they are just a pixel or two away from NK.

Apple makes subpar product and sells it at a premium price. It look nice, so lemmings buy it like crazy.

35mmBlueSky: I wonder how much Apple paid DXO, really a combination of 1/3" and 1/3.6" sensors gets you a 94 nowadays while dual cams with 1/2.3" and 1/2.6" or 1/2.8" gets well below that?

Apple is apparently lying, like they lied about sapphire glass cover over the lens in one of the previous models.

scotthunter: Just buy a Canon G7X Mkii if you're that bothered about photography but don't want to lug around a DSLR and a bunch of lenses. Use the right tool for the job.

That's exactly what I did. I have G9X mII, and Nikon Coolpix A. Both combined and my cell phone costed me less than iPhone X.

Johnedlt: They said that Nikon's re-organization/ restructuring meant that they will focus on highe-end, higher-performing products while they cull the herd of products and whole product lines.

It then makes sense for them to just go FF at the onset since starting from the bottom did not work out at all. I don't imagine them starting from the middle and lock horns with Fuji and everyone else in that category.

Leica M39 mount had apparently 39mm diameter.

Another mistake by Nikon. Nikon's dead baby, Nikon's dead!

antares103: Hold on. Every iPhone I have seen has a broken screen. Now they are making the ENTIRE phone out of glass?

How it differs? They started using Gorilla Glass finally?

Lee Jay: Slow sync is new? LEDs are really only capable of slow sync. What would be new is motion-freeze, i.e. a Xenon flash.

The article doesn't appear to say, but is the "telephoto" camera still limited to 56mm equivalent? That's just not nearly enough. I'd still have to carry a dedicated camera.

56 mm is a normal lens, not a Tele.

Bambi24: I really don't care about the iPhone X or iPhone 8, since it's out of my budget (phones are sold without subsidized contract here).

But I do care about the fact this technology will trickle down.

-the fact they managed to increase the sensor size is crazy (does anyone know by how much yet?)

-the fact they can do 4k @ 60fps is crazy
(1080p @ 240fps on all models is crazy too)

-the fact they now have optical IS on their tele too is crazy

We will see this technology in more phones soon.

Maybe they were talking about "Tele" sensor, which was really tiny. Also aperture increased on it as well to f/2.4. That's what I think.

What's so crazy about that? It already exist in GalaxyNote 8 and other phones.

BokehFanatic: What are those "deeper pixels"?

@Franz Weber They definitely need pixels from Dead Sea! Those are much better and deeper than from Netherlands.

Sensor is also "faster".

I don't think so. They were using 1/2.95". So now probably 1/2.9". There is no sensor available from Sony in a size of larger than 1/2.3" for smartphones. I'd like to see 1/1.7" though.

That's a good business for them to replace broken screens. Lemmings will pay any price.

FeDost: Now seriously, anyone who considers himself a photographer, from professional to amateur, would never spend 1000e on a phone just because it has a fabulous camera. C'mon guys, is still a phone with a 1/3-inch sensor, mini lenses, terrible battery life and only on screen commands, no dials or buttons...

Despite all the good words everyone will say about the new iPhone you can't expect to do serious photography from a mobile device. If you really need a compact camera get a Ricoh GR from 2013 with is much better in image quality, dynamic range, ISO performance and real controls.

I don't wanna open a compact cameras debate now, that was just an example, I'm sure that any premium compact camera can make better results over the iPhone (or any other over priced mobile) for 1/3 of the price.

This is only a marketing move because everyone wanna do "cool pics" but no one wants to bother to learn photography basics so leave this cool device to those people and grab a REAL camera!

@mattz10 not really, I like my Canon G9X mark II and Nikon Coolpix A a lot.

Mariano Pacifico: Gosh, the specs of this phone is way way way much better than DSLRs. Can't anybody in DSLR world learn from cellphones?

Samsung was doing this. They were using similar processors and Tizen or Android OS. Was a leading edge among the cameras.

In reply to:

supeyugin1: They forgot to mention that all dual cameras use microscopic sensors with junky IQ. I prefer real optical zoom similar to Galaxy K Zoom, which actually produces decent results better than any of the current flagships.

Why would I do this? I keep it separately in my pocket. But if it was incorporated into a phone, I wouldn't need to carry it. Panasonic Cm1 was pretty good, carried for a year, Galaxy K zoom was also fantastic. Both of them are abandoned by their respective manufacturers. Samsung is at Android version 4.4.2 and Panasonic is at 5.0.2. No updated for a long time.
Another solution is Moto Z(2) + Hassleblad True Zoom. But it's not better than Galaxy K zoom. Well, at least the phone part can be updated.

Canon G9X @30.6mm f/4.9 is equivalent to 1/3" sensor 11mm f/1.8, which no phone have right now. So no, it will not lose any light. And this is 85mm equivalent, which also no phone have right now.
Right now I'm using Blackberry Priv with 1/2.4" sensor and it's not even close to G9X, also used Galaxy S7 Edge, S8, S8+, and those are also not even close to G9X.

Canon G9X has 28-85 f/2.0-4.9 zoom with 1" sensor. But would just be happy with 28-35 mm range prime with f/2.0 aperture. Panasonic CM1 comes close with 1" sensor and 28/2.8 prime. It's 20mm thick (at the lens). Canon, on the other hand is 31mm thick, which is ok with me (if they do protruding lens section, similar to CM1). But none of the current dual camera module phones has a sensor bigger than 1/2.9" for "tele" lens, which is a useless junk. If they'll give me at least 1/1.7" sensor I'd be happy.
