The folks at Business Insider recently did a camera sample comparison between the Apple iPhone 7 Plus and Samsung Galaxy S7 which you can see below. Clearly, the dual rear camera on the iPhone 7 Plus brings much better quality photos compared to the iPhone 6s Plus but they found that when compared against the dual pixel camera on the Galaxy S7, the iPhone 7 Plus isn't as consistent and has autofocus issues. Granted, the new telephoto lens does help make zoom up shots more detailed.
However, because the iPhone 7 Plus automatically adjusts the exposure and lighting of each photo based on autofocused targets, each shot (even though it is taken in burst mode) can be slightly different. The Galaxy S7 also managed to catch better detailed low-light shots. As usual of the iPhone 7, colour reproduction is closer to the human eye compared to the Galaxy S7 which sometimes takes vividness to a different level.
In March, the Samsung Galaxy S7 edge became a hot gadget-to-have in Malaysia thanks to its many improvements, especially the Dual pixel camera technology. Recently Huawei's P9 and P9 Plus also arrived in Malaysia, this time with its Leica powered dual rear cameras. Yesterday, so did HTC's much-hyped HTC 10 which garnered enough positive impressions to make many think HTC is making a comeback. As usual, a comparison between the three beasts is inevitable. So which of these titans stands out the most? Read below to find out.
