The Ultimate Flagship Camera Contest: Galaxy S8 vs iPhone 7, Google Pixel, LG G6
As if the smartphone battle was not already heated up, Galaxy S8 arrived on the scene and made it more intense. When Samsung's latest flagship offering brought out its own guns, it felled critics and users alike, especially with its beauty. But its camera hardware is the one that is most talked about. Those who have used it were made to believe in its superior capability.
Nevertheless, there are still strong contenders in the shootout arena namely: iPhone 7, Google Pixel and LG G6. These flagships from Apple, Google and LG also have shooters that have awed reviewers. How do they compare to the latest talk of the town, Galaxy S8?
The Galaxy S8 Camera Standing
Although Samsung retained the rear camera hardware from the doomed Galaxy S7, they did make improvements in the image processing department. The 12-megapixel rear shooter and its f/1.7 aperture give more color saturation to photos. Sometimes more than it should, Forbes notes. It also has a tendency to blow over the light when shooting under the sun. Despite that, the Galaxy S8 is still a nice shooter--its abilities are specially tested under low light conditions.
The Contenders: iPhone 7, Google Pixel, LG G6
The iPhone 7 used to be king of shooters, but that was before Google Pixel and LG G6 or even Galaxy S8 came to challenge it. However, the competition started blowing it out of the water in different respects, especially when it came to image processing.
First off, the iPhone 7 is barely hanging in there. Although it still takes relatively good photos, the cameras of other flagships outperform it. Compared to the three, it captures less fine details. Furthermore, it tends to throw in darker shades and shadows and oversaturates. Nevertheless, it is still able to shoot good photos in low light and still covers a dynamic range.
Meanwhile, LG G6 holds its own against the others. It is able to capture true colors in some regards without over warming hues. The phone's image processing capabilities also come up with crisp and clean photos. However, it does have a tendency to oversaturate images to the point that the finer details it captures are lost. But its dual camera gives it a slight advantage, making it more versatile, therefore able to take photos at wider angles.
And, of course, Google Pixel. As The Verge points out, this smartphone offering from Google is a standout when it comes to shootouts. It is especially touted in the low light department, the same area Galaxy S8 is trying to shine. Despite that, Samsung's new flagship is still a step behind in image processing which is Pixel's area of expertise. Compared to the rest, it also captures better photos more often.
