“iPhone 6s and Galaxy S7 enter, only one camera phone leaves,” Daniel Bader reports for iMore. “With the release of Samsung’s Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge, the six-month old iPhone 6s has a brand new rival for the title of best mobile camera.

“The iPhone’s strengths are in situations with ample light, particularly with the sun as a source; Apple manages to capture photos with more natural colors and less artificial sharpening. This is especially evident in shots with lots of minute detail, or in macros,” Bader reports. “The Galaxy S7, on the other hand, performs well in lower light, owing to a larger sensor and wider aperture. That said, the device doesn’t outright dominate, as photos taken in dim situations tend to emerge warmer and less lifelike.”
