Apple Live Photos vs Samsung Motion Photos: here are the differences
Samsung, naturally, responded to Apple's Live Photos by adding a new "Motion Photo" feature to the camera software in its Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 edge flagships, which is very similar to what the iPhone does. Still, there are a few subtle differences in how the two different systems operate, and we will explore them here.
|Apple Live Photos||Samsung Motion Photos|
|Records frames before and after picture||Records only the frames before the picture|
|Records sound||No sound|
|No native way to export||Animation can be exported to video file|
Samsung's Motion Photos are a bit easier to shareWhen it comes to sharing the Galaxy S7's Motion Photos, you have a choice of either sending the still image — the actual photo you wanted to take — or exporting all the frames as an .mp4 video file. Additionally, while watching a Motion Photo on your phone, you can freeze-frame the playback at any point and capture said frame as a separate picture — in case you end up liking one of the alternate frames better than the one that you actually pressed the shutter on.
