DxOMark gives iPhone 7 high scores, still at #3

The one caveat, however, is that while the iPhone 7 did get an overall score of 86, beating out the iPhone 6s Plus’ 84, that still landed this year’s model only in 3rd place, behind 6 other smartphones in DxOMark’s growing list of smartphones with outstanding cameras.
