Camera comparison: Samsung Galaxy S III vs the fierce competition

Introduction, Details and Color reproduction

You can now read:


The Samsung Galaxy S III got announced only a few weeks ago, and we've already gone into great depths regarding the device and its features. We've reviewed it, compared it against pretty much all of its rivals, made an in-depth screen comparison... so, what else? Well, how about a quick camera comparison, eh?!

The phones that we've chosen to include in this sweet little competition (besides the S III) are the Galaxy S II, iPhone 4S, Galaxy Note, Xperia S and Galaxy Nexus. Additionally, we're also throwing in samples made with the Canon PowerShot SD780 IS for reference.

Alright, let's get going!


Ever since the iPhone 4S launched, it's been dominating this particular field of smartphone photography. Now, with the Xperia S around, though, it has some serious competition to consider. Thanks to its 12MP sensor, the Xperia S manages to very slightly edge the iPhone 4S, but we're putting them both at first place, giving credit to the iPhone's spectacular 8MP camera. Unfortunately, the Galaxy S III couldn't really compete on the same level when it comes to details.

Color reproduction:

It's as if every device had its own opinion of how the shot would look great when it came to the colors. We found the Galaxies to be most accurate here, although not perfect. They often gravitate slightly towards the colder side of the spectrum, while the iPhone 4S's and Xperia S's shots look great most of the time, but are considerably warmer and oversaturated than in reality.
