Galaxy S6 edge vs Note 4 low-light camera test gives props to the new flagship (video)
posted by Daniel P. / Mar 11, 2015, 6:46 AM
At first look, it carries the same resolution as the snapper in the Galaxy S5, so what's so different about it, right? Well, resolution is only a part of it, and Samsung has upgraded the both the rear and front camera units of its new flagships in very meaningful ways, registering them for the smartphone camera top marathon. Just look at Samsung's own description: "Quick Launch, Tracking AF, Auto Real-time HDR(Front & Rear) , F1.9, Low Light Video(Front & Rear), High Clear Zoom, IR Detect White Balance, Virtual Shot, Slow Motion, Fast Motion, Pro Mode, Selective Focus." Whew, let the last one close the door.

Nah he just likes samsung, nothing wrong with that, they are a good company after all. samsung has really good cameras and their flash chips are second to none, even Apple prefers them to toshiba or micron. really hoping the new iPhone uses UFS, it's wonderful technology. But I just hopes he stops trolling on Apple threads, with the same old arguments about price. Still don't get this Holy war with Apple products , Some people like iO.S they use it , others like Android they use , Some like Samsung hardware , So they buy it, at the end of the day , it's not like Samsung are donating me free phones. So guys just buy what ever you like....and remember more competition = better. peace.

"Still don't get this Holy war with Apple products" It stems from the nuclear war Apple started against Android. For a long I wouldn't even consider purchasing any Apple products but a few months ago I bought a used iPhone 5 to check out iOS. It's not a bad OS but it's not my cup of tea.

Honestly,(and I can't speak for everyone), it stems from Apple's holy war with everyone else, their method of taking advantage of the broken patent system to get patents that are over broad, cover concepts instead of specific solutions, and are often stolen work of others. Then they use that to keep others from advancing in the market. They once claimed in court that tapping an icon to unlock a screen violated their slide to unlock patent (which was a stolen concept to begin with), because "a tap is a zero length swipe." Their actions make phones less advanced than they could be, while making them more expensive because of the legal costs. That harms all of us. Note, to be fair, it seems they might be heading in the right direction with Tim Cook at the helm. The lawsuits have stopped pretty much, but the patent system abuse hasn't. They're still trying to patent overbroad concepts and the work of others. Once they stop that, I'll have zero issue with them. I don't care what brand anyone buys, that's their business.

Basically he said he was shocked at how relatively good it performs under the challenging conditions, both in terms of speed (which he says and shows is a good improvement over the Note 4) and output quality. The latter thanks to the effective stabilization, brighter lens and better processing. He stated that even his system camera was struggling to achieve focus (specifically regarding speed) under those conditions.

You could even look at the video and see how impressive it was. He was being recorded taking pictures and the video shows how low the light was BUT on the S6, it was like if it was 5pm instead of what looked like 9pm. The fact that it was doing this real time and not post processing was VERY impressive. Even compared to a note 4 (current king)

galaxy alpha had a 1840 mAh and it was good enough to last for a day so i guess battery life here won't be a problem despite of having a thinner battery ;) also AMOLED screens are battery-efficient

Displaymate as tested and it's uses 20% less power then the s5 screen and 25% less power of the iphome 6 screen and so on, so the small battery with all ther other power saving of the cpu and mem and so on will easy last better than anything with a bigger battery of 500mAh more above it with easy, you also have the supper power saving mode that lasts a very long time as the screen uses no power when using black, on my note 4 edge the other day I did not plug in my charger right and my. Power was saying running out, changed over and it lated for 2 more days, I was able to use the net and phone and txts and so on in this time, the phone was at 10%, this will work even better on the new s6 edge
