Samsung Galaxy S7 vs Apple iPhone 6s: quick camera comparison


We're live here at MWC 2016 and we just got a chance to test the new, 12-megapixel camera on the Samsung Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge.

You probably already know the technicalities: it's the first with a Dual Pixel sensor on a phone and that allows faster auto-focusing, but first and foremost, Samsung said how the camera can now capture 95% more light than the Galaxy S6 thanks to the wider, f/1.7 lens and larger individual pixels. 

This is just tech talk, though. What really matters is image quality.

To understand this, there is no better way than to compare the actual images shot on the Galaxy S7 against photos from the Apple iPhone 6s. Which one does better?

We took three quick images and we're looking forward to your initial thoughts in the comments right below.
