Only got half way through, but the iPhone looked better to me in general. The one thing that stood out to me was he's gonna get himself killed one day riding in NYC on that board.

I agree Ken, the iPhone 8 warmer color looked better to me. The iPhone X should be even better.

Joe, I heard a report indicating that parts delays may result in many not getting their X until February.

The Note seemed to produce more accurate color. It also appeared to be more exposed than the iPhone (assuming that the same settings are used), suggesting that it would have better low light performance.

Not so sure of that. I’ve seen one camera produce a brighter image than another with similar settings, but when the lights dim, that same camera produces a noisier image as the result of too much gain. We’ll have to wait to see.

In terms of color, I thought the IPhone produced more accurate colors. The Note’s colors looked too cool to me. As always color can be subjective, but to me it looked like an ISF calibrated TV vs one that wasn’t. Many people are initially turned off by a calibrated display, since they’re used to the overly blue picture they’ve watched for years.

Maybe they are using batteries recycled from all the recalled Note 7s.

Joe, I still like the warmer colors of the IPhone over the Pixel.
