Ever since Samsung teased the Samsung Galaxy S9 and S9+ for the very first time, the new camera has been at the forefront of the company's advertising efforts. With a second shooter for the S9+, variable apertures on both phones, super slow-mo video recording, and Bixby Vision integration, there's plenty to talk about the new Galaxy cameras. But the main thing that that Samsung likes to boast about is perhaps the variable aperture, which the company claims improves low-light performance substantially. In fact, Samsung representatives at MWC told us that the new phones will be able to capture 28% more light than the S8 models, and with 30% less noise. But is this really the case? Are the Galaxy S9 and S9+ that much of an improvement over last year's models when it comes to low-light photography? Well, that's what we're here to find out.In this comparison, we are pitting the Galaxy S9+ against the iPhone X, the Pixel 2 XL, and the Note 8, in order to find out just how better it is than … [Read more...] about Samsung Galaxy S9+ vs iPhone X vs Pixel 2 XL vs Galaxy Note 8: Low-light camera comparison
Xiaomi's most talked about phone of the year, the Redmi Note 5 Pro impressed us during our tests. The phone sets a benchmark for upcoming budget phones and has the smarts to compete against more expensive devices. To test this, we pitted the Redmi Note 5 Pro against the OnePlus 5T. While the Snapdragon 835 the 5T ships with, is obviously more powerful than the Snapdragon 636 and comes with enhanced support for camera's up to 32MP or 16MP dual-cams, Xiaomi's camera actually surprised us here.The OnePlus 5T being a considerably more expensive phone, this comparison is a good example of how OEMs are blurring the lines between budget and flagship smartphones.Camera specificationsThe Redmi Note 5 Pro has 12MP and 5MP sensors on the front and back. The 12MP sensor is the primary sensor, whereas the 5MP sensor is a monochrome sensor, used to capture depth.On the other hand, the OnePlus 5T has a 16MP wide-angle primary and a 20MP secondary lens. The OnePlus 5T has f/1.7 aperture, which is … [Read more...] about Camera Comparison: Xiaomi Redmi Note 5 Pro vs OnePlus 5T

The long-awaited Galaxy S9 and S9+ have finally been revealed, and we're here to bring you a nifty size comparison between the latest entries in Samsung's S-lineup of smartphones and their main competition.Unsurprisingly, the Galaxy S9 and S9+ don't mark a big departure from last year's models, design- and size-wise at least, with the new S-series flagships sporting almost the same bezel-less design and tall, Super AMOLED Infinity Displays that made the S8 and S8+ stand out in 2017. In fact, he biggest design changes in the new flagships come in the form of a slightly slimmed down bottom bezel, and a relocated fingerprint scanner on the back, both of which are welcome decisions on Samsung's part.As you probably remember, one of the biggest gripes people had with the Galaxy S8 and S8+ had to do with the fingerprint scanner, which was located in an arguably awkward position, right next to the camera, and was often times hard to tell apart from the lens right next to it. This has changed … [Read more...] about Samsung Galaxy S9/S9+ dimensions and size comparison

MrShazam (banned) (Posts: 987; Member since: 22 Jun 2017) I would prefer a wide angle as the main and a 3x telephoto lens as the secondary. Even wider angle can be easily imitated with a Panorama shot, but can't always get close to the subject, which is where the telephoto lens becomes very handy... posted on 15 Dec 2017, 10:42 0 4. youssef44 (Posts: 358; Member since: 29 Apr 2014) me too posted on 16 Dec 2017, 06:59 0 7.
