Apple highlights iPhone 8 Plus and iPhone X Portrait Lighting feature in two new videos

Apple wants to make it easier for those still undecided to choose to purchase the iPhone X or iPhone 8 Plus. Two new videos showing how one can shoot pictures using Portrait Lighting feature have just been published by Apple.
One of the videos shows how iPhone 8 Plus and iPhone X users can edit Portrait Lighting effects on these two smartphones. Both devices come with various effects that one can use to change the way the captured pictures look like: Natural Light, Contour Light, and Stage Light.
However, these are not filters, as Apple claims the effects are capable of real-time analysis thanks to the AI implemented in the camera's chip. Aside from the special effects, the camera should not capture shots slightly faster than on the other iPhones.

Compare to Snapseed, it looks less impressive.

Why not think before trolling. Snapseed, which was an iOS exclusive app for years before been bought out by Google doesn't offer those effects automatically, u have to tweak and edit pics before you get something close to these, whereas those shown above are default options in the photo app, so tell me how its less impressive? Oh! wait, its cos its made by Apple? SMH

Camera filters have been around for years, but I’m glad Apple is making smartphones closer to making them replacements over DSLR. I give it 3 more years. Big strides, but we still fall short of zooming and low light quality...
