Galaxy S8 vs iPhone 7 Plus: Which one has the best camera?
Even though Apple and Samsung smartphones are quite different in many ways, comparisons are inevitable. One of the aspects that most seems to interest its consumers is camera of both devices. Of course, a lot of testing has been done to determine which one can take more beautiful pictures or record more stable videos. If you're also curious if iPhone 7 Plus or the Galaxy S8 did better, just check out our article below!
iPhone or Galaxy S8?
Incredibly, there are not many technical differences between the rear cameras of the iPhone 7 and the Galaxy S8. Both have 12 megapixels and have received several improvements over their predecessor models. In addition, both are also capable of recording 4K video and have enough aperture to take good pictures in dark environments.
The comparisons were made by the EverythingApplePro YouTube channel, which always does this kind of testing fairly fairly. If you prefer, you can watch the video with the results below.
In the first outdoor video test, you can see that the Galaxy S8 can reproduce colors far more vibrantly than iPhone 7 Plus. There is also more contrast in the S8, while the iPhone seems to make the images darker and grayer.
Another very apparent problem with the Apple smartphone comes when you point the camera at a dark backdrop and then a lighter one in a short time. The transition leaves a horrible effect on iPhone videos, and you can see the way the device tries to compensate for the lack or excess of light, even looking like a factory defect.
Unfortunately, this is a problem that has happened since the release of iPhone 7 and has not yet been resolved by Apple. Already in the Galaxy S8, you barely notice the transition between environments and everything happens in a very fluid way.
As for image stabilization, for both photos and videos, the two handsets perform very well and it seems very difficult to leave a blurred image. The microphone on the Galaxy S8 and iPhone 7 Plus also had decent results, although this is never a big focus on smartphones.
Finally, it can be said that the two devices are really impressing with their cameras, with the Galaxy S8 being slightly better in certain situations. Either way, you'll get great photos and video with any of them.
