You couldn’t presumably have missed a three-way smartphone comparison between a LG G6, Samsung Galaxy S8, and Sony Xperia XZ Premium we published dual weeks ago, yet if that’s somehow a box be certain to locate adult now.
The Samsung Galaxy S7 corner didn’t utterly go in that group, and for an apparent reason – it’s final year’s model. We did, however, move it along when we went to fire a camera samples – a new vs. aged shootout was always partial of a plans, even if only for in-house consumption. Well, as it turns out, this head-to-head now creates it to publication.
We’ll keep it light this time, no consummate examinations on a end, no 1:1 crops, no in-depth research – only a samples for some Sunday afternoon chilling. Though, in all fairness, in many scenarios it feels like comparing dual matching images anyway, so there’s not most to analyze. Here are a daytime shots.

There are some-more conspicuous differences in low light with a S8 gripping a colors a small cooler, and maintaining somewhat some-more fact while also doing a improved pursuit of removing absolved of noise.

One area where there are improvements on a hardware turn is a front camera. The Galaxy S8 gets an 8MP shooter, while a S7 corner is versed with a aged 5MP cam that should have been transposed a prolonged time ago. That’s not contend it’s bad – we quite like a wider angle of view. The S8’s selfie cam does have some-more sharp-witted colors and a images are some-more detailed, duh.

On to some panoramas. We weren’t super vehement about a approach a S8 varies bearing while sweeping, so finale adult with some manifest movement in a sky’s liughtness level. No complaints about a S7 edge’s doing of exposure.

Finally, a set of 4K videos for we observation pleasure. The initial span is a common stage shot from a tripod from a patio during a headquarters.
The subsequent dual videos are some-more engaging though, as they illustrate a pivotal disproportion between a dual phones – a Galaxy S7 corner lacks EIS in 4K video recording, while a S8 has a parasite in that checkbox.
So if we’re to contend some difference in lieu of a conclusion, a S7 corner (and by prolongation a S7 proper) is still ideally applicable in a camera department. If we insist on staying forward of a bend and demeanour during a finish package (and also income is no intent to you), by all means do upgrade. Just know that if we reason on to a S7 edge, we won’t be blank out too much. At slightest until a new Note shows up, and that can’t be shortly enough, if we ask us.
