Portrait mode photography on smartphones has improved a lot in recent times. It caught up everyone's attention when Apple launched the iPhone 7 Plus, the first iPhone with dual rear cameras. Since then, we have seen many smartphones releasing with a special focus on portrait mode aka Bokeh effect capabilities. Even though most of the smartphones rely on dual cameras to achieve the depth of field effect, there are a few smartphones like Google's Pixel 2 which do the same with the single lens.

This is the reason it makes sense to do a portrait mode camera comparison featuring smartphones with the dual as well as a single rear camera. In this comparison, we will have a look at the iPhone X, Samsung Galaxy Note 8, and Pixel 2 to see what kind of results the offer with the same subject under similar conditions.

Here are the portrait mode camera samples:
