Samsung touts Galaxy S8 camera prowess in a series of stunning photos


From the peaks of Snowdonia, to the Scottish Hihglands, to monolithic Stonehenge, a new study has revealed the 20 greatest vistas of the British Isles, both natural and man-made, both ancient and modern. So, what does this have to do with the Galaxy S8, you may ask? Well, a lot in this case.

Samsung has decided to celebrate the occasion by commissioning Landscape Photographer of the Year Matthew Cattell to capture some of the most breath-taking views from the list on camera. And not on a an ultra-expensive dedicated camera, at that, but using only the Samsung Galaxy S8. Although you may not be able to tell by just looking at them, all the photos included here have been shot with Samsung's latest flagship.

Selected vistas are also being framed in giant Galaxy S8 scale models that measure in at 22 x 9.84 ft (or 7 x 3 m), which will be touring around the top 20 sights throughout April. You can check out out some of the stunning photos in the gallery below.

Last year phone Pixel takes much better looking pic than S8. Atleast samsung should have tried to put a bigger sensor than previous one or put dual camera sensor in S8. But they didn't they cheap out. Try harder next year samsung. In the mean time Pixel>>>>>S8. #fact. #truth. Second gen Pixel will blow this phone away.

So much butthurt from Samsung, and it doesn't take a sammy fan to see that. You went from hilariously stupid to pitifully stupid very quick.

You sound like a broken record every time you reply to my comment with exact same sentence. Next time come up with something new when you reply to my comment. You are boring.

The Samsung camera is one of the best camera phones BUT virtually every camera phone on the market can take stunning photos if you give it to a professional & they take 100 photos & pic the best one.

Very true. A profession can also make photos taken from nexus 4 look stunning! That said, S8 camera is great.

Landscape photographer of the year is given s8 to take photographs. So the quality of the image is more a function of quality of photographer than quality of s8 camera. Even iPhone 7 plus did something similar and now everyone hates it.

I have not seen any pixel vs s8 camera comparison till now. Is Samsung paying to prevent such a comparison ? It will blow away some of the hype of s8.

The phone isn't released yet and most of those who are going to do these comparisons are under NDA for at least one more week.

Then how come phone arena is doing comparison between s8 , s8, iPhone 7 , g6. If all these phones can be compared, why cannot pixel.

I bet Samsung will stop sending future flagship models to phone arena, if they had compared s8 with pixel and shown us which is actually better.

"if they had compared s8 with pixel and shown us which is actually better." That would only show the S8 being better. Simple.

I have no problem with s8 camera outperforming pixel camera . Infact I want s8 to win over pixel. But for that I need to see the comparison between s8 and pixel , which could have been easily done. I am not a fortune-teller or an Oracle like you . I am just a normal human being.

I've seen pixel comparisons elsewhere. Google it.
