The new Samsung Galaxy S6 is the most impressive phone that the company has ever made, and it’s due to launch this April. Talking about the device’s capability, especially in the photography field, has already got viral and interested consumers trending with praise. Does Samsung’s new smartphone hang with the best? Here we have placed some photos taken with the Galaxy S6 with 16MP + OIS compared to the iPhone 6 Plus with 8MP + OIS technology to get an insight how the two devices perform in the day-to-day usage.
While the Galaxy S6, with its 16MP rear-facing camera, seems to have taken warm refresh from the past lessons and has improved itself in low-light scenario, and builds on top of every smartphone Samsung has ever released which is bound to be loaded with features. iPhone 6 Plus however remains the regining smartphone photography champion, when compared it to the Galaxy Note 4’s camera-esque in low-light photography, has a fast, more color accurate – and probably better – balanced camera in terms of usability.
You can now see the results for yourself, courtesy of The Verge, and you will notice how sharp and detailed the photos from the S6 are, and are very comparable to shots taken using the iPhone 6 Plus in terms of overall quality. Photos, all there are in the test were taken using the stock Camera app set to auto HDR. Nevertheless, the S6 adds a bit of warmth to the color tone in the photos you see, but it’s not something that should concern interested users, but is in fact more of a personal preference case.
Interesting low-light photos take on the Galaxy S6; the shots are clear and there’s only as much noise as an iPhone 6 Plus would eventually produce in similar lighting conditions, though we still see Samsung go with a slightly warmer white balance here as well.
The photos taken using the iPhone 6 Plus and Galaxy S6 below, and see for yourself who they fare in outdoor, indoor and low-light conditions:
Anyone looking at purchasing a new smartphone with an emphasis on the camera, you couldn’t go wrong with either of the two, Samsung Galaxy S6 or iPhone 6 Plus.
