The MWC 2016 has ended, and we already have got to know about all that the Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge can offer. But what most of the buyers are keen on knowing is the quality of the cameras in the new S7 twins. Samsung itself has said that the S7 gets a totally new image sensor with great low-light capabilities and lightning-fast auto focus. But how does it fare against the iPhone 6s practically?
A YouTuber called SuperSaf has got his hands on the Galaxy S7 and has put the phone against iPhone 6s and 6s Plus to see who’s got the better camera. To remind you, the Galaxy S7 offers a 12MP rear sensor with an f/1.7 aperture, PDAF, OIS, and 1.4 µm pixels. On the opposite, the iPhone 6s comes with a 12MP rear camera with 1.22µm sized pixels, PDAF, and f/2.2 aperture. The iPhone 6s Plus gets OIS too. All the phones in this comparison get 5MP front cameras, but the iPhones’ front sensors get an f/2.2 aperture while the S7’s sensors flaunt an f/1.7 aperture.
As far as the on-sheet details matter, the Galaxy S7 easily wins over the iPhone 6s and 6s Plus. But is that the case in real-life conditions? Well, the video shows that the S7 captures greater details and better colors in normal light. But it’s only in low-light conditions where the S7 really takes a large lead against the iPhone 6s. The S7’s low-light images are crisp, more dynamic, less grainy, and brighter than that of the iPhones’.
The dual-pixel autofocus technology in the Galaxy S7 is also worth talking about, as it focuses even before you can catch it. The video also shows the 240fps slow motion capacities of the S7. Take a look at the video itself and see if you can stop yourself from buying the S7 over the iPhone 6s Plus.
