Camera comparison: Samsung Galaxy Note 4 vs iPhone 6, iPhone 6 Plus, Sony Xperia Z3, LG G3, Galaxy S5, Galaxy Note 3
Pretty much every recent smartphone has the ability to take sweep panoramas. The Samsung Galaxy Note 4, in particular, turns out to be pretty good at it, just like previous high-ends by Samsung. Its panoramas are flawlessly stitched and with tons of detail, as you can clearly see below. Plus, their resolution of 60MP gives you plenty of freedom for cropping, zooming, and printing.
The iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus have the ability to take panoramas of over 40 megapixels and stitch them really well. Details, however, aren't as plentiful as they are in the Note 4's panoramas.
The Samsung Galaxy Note 3 and Samsung Galaxy S5 are are about the same level when it comes to panorama performance. The produced images are of resolution around 60MP and contain little to no stitching imperfections.
From the LG G3 we got panoramas with extremely high resolution – around 68 megapixels. The image quality, however, was not as great as the pixel count. Details were muddy and portions of the frames had stitching errors.
As for the Sony Xperia Z3, its panoramas are embarrassingly bad. The otherwise high-end phone takes pathetic, 5MP panoramas with no fine detail in them whatsoever.
