Looks promising. We need a comparison between LG5 and GS7 soon!

Yes, a real blind vote and make sure to get rid of the EXIF data. Are you listening PhoneArena? Your website users are far too clever.

Removing EXIF data isn't enough
Samsung's photos tend to be warmer and slightly more yellow/red
Can't remember about LG
Apple's photos tend to be colder and slightly more green
So fanboys would still vote for their brand

Nah ... they should just throw as many phones as they can and not even tell us which phones are participating ... that'd be pretty fair!

Depends, some frothing fanboys people have already declared the s7 dead... Yeah -_-

that new camera of s7 looks fantastic i saw the comparison with iphone6s it made it like if it is years older than the s7 apple need to work hard to make a better camera in iphone7.

4:3 sucks big hairy Apple beanbags.
Definitely a step backwards from the usual Samsung gold standard max res at 16:9.

Micro sd is BIG? Cmon dont make me pitty you. If so, you forgot to mention sim card slot and on/off button. Micro has been there for almost 10 years, and only a fool removes it. It doesnt make him a genious if he puts it back.

Same goes out for not having a dedicated camera button. Lets look at lumia 1520. While taking it out of the pocket you can already record a video. No look magic, made possible by decades old patent.

You know, you can pretty easily double tap the home button as you're pulling the s6 or s7 out of your pocket to get the camera app pulled up. I do think a hardware shutter button is nice to have, but... It's not really that big a deal, at least to me.

For me, having a dedicated camera button and full control remote on earphones (go see wh-701 from Nokia - Those were the days, using them with N8 music player and Nokia N8 dedicated camera button) are crucial features for using smartphones.

I can totally understand your perspective and preference, I can't really argue with you for what you like. To each their own :-) I remember missing the shutter key on the 920 for a while when I switched to the One M8.

Then you don't have many phones to choose from nowadays...

But isn't the Exynos version the one with 8 cores?
If these are really the scores from the Exynos version :o then this is definitely big!

Wut...those samples aren't at full res. And those stupid zoom controls won't land on exactly 100%. Viewing photos doesn't mean a lot unless you can view the original resolution at 100%.
