shutter lag makes all of those specs moot…..what good is the biggest, widest, longest lens when it can’t even take a good shot?
77, 4 hours agoGarbage, comparing it to a nokia pureview, no lossless pixels when zoomed in and xenon flash.The Pureview was good but the S21U was far from Garbage. It was one of the best camera phones of the last year, if not the best, and for good reason. The 10x lossless optical zoom was incredibly detailed and image quality was superb. I almost never use flash on phones because they have night mode so Samsung is far ahead of most competitors to the point that a flash is borderline useless as anything other than a torch
vrvly, 6 hours agoThis was not so true with ultra pixels. Even though they use 12 megapixels as standard, this should improve a lot.Sony might put that in its new Pro-I series instead, but who knows. Apparently Sony announced 2 more phones this year.
Samsung mobiles are always a fascination for me. Their AMOLED screens, cameras, edge screens, etc. We got an S8 in 2017 and it was our first flagship mobile. But my brother bought it and I used it the first week, which was a wonderful experience. Later, I jumped into iPhone territory because of a slow Mi phone which was a budget phone in India. Recently, in April this year, I came back to Android with my Note 9 which I bought from TheFoneStore for 350 CAD. This is my first Samsung mobile and the last from Samsung with a 3.5mm jack and SD card. Even though it is a four year old mobile, it has many features that I spent a whole month exploring and still have. The photos and videos may not be up to today’s standards, but they’re still great and I love them. I bought the iPhone 11 Pro Max, a flagship mobile, in 2011. It’s a great model with the longest battery life, but compared to the Note 9 I have now, the fun is not was not remarkable. iPhones are great but boring except for camera and video quality. No matter how much money you spend on iPhones, everyone’s phone looks the same on the inside, there’s not much you can customize. But Samsung mobiles are for tech enthusiasts and they can enjoy them every day and every minute.
Looking at the camera specs chart, the S10 5G looks the best with most features. Compared to other newer or older phones.

Anonymous TechnoGeek, 6 hours agoFirst of all, the displayed 0.8um is the equivalent of 108mp. All these phones (including… moreMore resolution welcome as it means more data to work with, also depends on processing power. I bet they’ll test it before sending it to the store, for color, detail and speed…
Also, in most cases more mp’s come with a bigger sensor, maybe there is less motivation to do the same thing with the old resolution used?
And I bet there’s 200 commercials in the mix.
Weird not to include dual pixel autofocus in the article. This was one of the highlights of the S7 camera.
108mp has always been a big risk due to focus issues. HOWEVER, I fully think the S21 Ultra had the best camera Samsung has ever made for a handset. The S22 Ultra is a little disappointing, still good, but personally I prefer the 21 Ultra

ShubhamDeshmukh, 7 hours agoI know Apple is finally making 48MP, but you’ll be surprised that it’s similar to the GN2,… moreFirst of all, the displayed 0.8um is the equivalent of 108mp. All of these phones (including Apple, if they have a 48-megapixel sensor) will shoot in 12-megapixel pixel binning mode. And the Samsung, in pixel binned mode, has a 2.4um pixel pitch (since it’s doing Nonapixel Binning). If Apple uses the 48mp sensor in its next iPhone, it’s also likely to have a 2.4-2.8um pixel pitch, so they’re not that far apart. There are also advantages to using a 108mp sensor (depending on the situation).
One thing I do agree though, 200mp isn’t really necessary. They just need to keep improving the current 108mp HM3.

Even though they use 12 megapixels as standard, that should improve detail more than the Bayer quad. A large sensor also means more light, even if it’s a standard Bayer. Best 8K, 2x lossless, high resolution stacked with standard Bayer audio also good.
Not to mention that it could also move Sony towards higher resolution sensors, which would be interesting, now if it will be 1IVR or 1VR or 0.
The S10 also had a dual aperture
Anonymous, 6 hours agoThe main camera of iphone 14 pro is Bayer. 48MP 1/1.3″ DRAM DOL-HDRLet’s see how that plays out, because using a normal Bayer 48MP would mean that Apple would give up low-light performance and 4K video quality entirely.
Nick Tegrataker, 7 hours agoIronically, Apple is heading towards Quad Bayer this year, with the iPhone 14 Pro presumably… moreThe main camera of iphone 14 pro is Bayer.
The multiple aperture was great, it’s better small for video and large for stills, or equally small for all focus shots.
4K was rare then also in the professional field, just as 8K is now, being able to use it to save memories is insane considering its real value.
Same with high resolution raws, although on a small sensor it can come close to pro cameras in terms of detail, unlike having only 12Mp.
In fact, the best 8K I’ve seen was from the S20+ with 64mp, it’s like every frame is a still image and of course, even though it’s mediocre, it’s 32mp.
MRSTEK, 13 hours agoInterestingly, a large proportion of Samsung ISOCELL sensors have a matching Sony Exmor sensor… moreSamsung places the DRAM below the circuit area rather than as an interlayer to avoid Sony patents.
But they no longer use this technology. It wasn’t worth using just for slow motion because Samsung doesn’t care about action shots.
52mm is not a telephoto lens.
It must be at least 80 mm.
Only the periscope is telephoto here.
Ouch, it’s been 10 years since S3!!!!!
I feel like I should have known that already, but seeing it written on screen confirms the fact. I remember going to my local Carphonewarehouse store to pick up my pre-ordered S3, they were having trouble getting the blue one I ordered so I could wait or pick up a white one instead. I don’t feel like a decade has passed since then, time flies too fast these days……
