I only received my iPhone 7 yesterday so I’ve not been able to put the camera through its paces, though the few shots I’ve managed to take so far have been magnificent. The quality certainly isn’t close to my DxO One, but the iPhone 7 is far superior to my previous 6s Plus—especially in low-light conditions.

The first two photos, hosted at 500px, were edited using a combination of Photoshop Express, Pixelmator, and Snapseed1. While these have been edited, no attempts at noise reduction were made with the night shot of Manhattan. I’m very impressed with how well the iPhone 7 performs in low-light conditions.

The last photo, posted on Instagram, is unedited and unfiltered.

  1. I’ve been editing photos entirely within iOS, using apps like these, ever since iCloud Photo Library was first made available. I can’t even remember the last time I opened Photos on my Mac, let alone edited a photo with it.
