    Note 8 definitely has a really nice camera, but I've always fancied the wide-angle camera on the LG V30.

    I haven't gotten back to play with a v30 yet. Is it amazing?

    Nice to know we have one of the best cameras but honestly I don't think I'm a good enough photographer to any of the top end ones justice anyway

    I’m curious what Samsung has done.

    That video definitely needs work though. Perhaps software updates will help?

    It's noteworthy that the Note 8 has the highest score for PHOTOS (as opposed to video). If you look at the sub scores: 100 for Note 8, 99 for Pixel 2, and 94 for iPhone 8 Plus. So if photos are your priority, Note 8 is best.

    I'm not a photographer, but definately the cameras on the Samsung is way better than the iPhones... the Note 5 camera out beats the iPhone 6 plus series, Note 7 camera out beats the iPhone 7 plus series... I did not get nor want the iPhone 8 plus, that's why i resorted with the Note 8, but quality wise on the Note 8 is amazing! Got alot of good compliments with the picture quality taken by the Note 8. Very satisfied and happy with my Note!

    Not quite. Or rather, not at all. For the main 4 things that matter in photography, the Pixel 2 is trouncing the Note 8. That's Exposure and Contrast, Color, Autofocus and Texture. The big thing that the Note is winning on is zoom. Which is good, but it's a feature not used in the vast majority of photos. Note users will use it more because they have a dedicated lens to help with it and it's an advertised feature, but most users are point and shoot with very little modification.

    Exposure and Contrast Pixel wins by 13 points
    Color Pixel wins by 13 points
    Autofocus Pixel wins by 4 points
    Texture Pixel wins by 8 points

    Zoom Note 8 wins by 34 points

    No. Given DXOMark's scoring methodology, the Note8 scored 100 and the Pixel2 scored 99. You are free to use your own methodology if it suits your purposes better (e.g., if zoom is not important to you). I take mostly portrait shots and consider the zoom very important, so DXOMark's scoring methodology works for me.

    Can't wait to get the Note 8 for the low light camera ability.

    Well, it's no match for my full frame DSLR, but I've been mostly impressed with it.

    It should also be noted that the note 8 does a significantly better job at detail preservation in low light than the Pixel 2 dxomark gives the note 8 16 points higher than the Pixel 2 for noise.

    I realize that this might be unimportant for you but it's significant for me.

    Sample from dxomark.:

    Well, whichever phone you get, you'll have a great camera.

    Though I do want the Pixel 2 XL for that video unless I can snag that V30 sometime. But 3 OS upgrades though.

    Its not the camera that makes photos great. Its the technique's and knowledge of photography the photographer uses. An amateur photographer with a high end DSLR wouldn't be able to capture as good photos as an expert photographer with a cell phone camera. The equipment does help some but a true photographer shouldn't rely in it for their shortcomings.

    It definitely can stand toe-to-toe with the Note 8, but if money is no object and you don't want the wide-angle amazingness, the Note 8 is slightly better. The V30 is a better video camera, and has far better audio on every side.
