Not as bad as m7. I see a little in very specific low light shots.

Even my DSL has the same problem with 12800 iso and total black. There will be dots and stuff all over the image. Especially with noise reduction on low or even dissabled.

ISO is just a mather of removing more or less noise from the sensory data. Consider it a radio, maximising the volume will make it hum and other things, stuff that you wont notice with sensible volume/gain. Nothing is free of noise and camera sensors are analog and take in noise and IR-radiation esp if the phone is warm. You can prevent this noise appearing but then you get worse performance in Low SNR (signal-to-noise ratio) situation - like dark images.

So is this an issue or not? :/
Last time i got my m7 replaced (about 3-4 months ago) this issue was fixed, so this problem would be gone with m8?
