It’s not easy to call it – these two phones are quite the same, so deciding which one has the best camera is going to cause a lot of pixel peeping. And this is quite normal since we are a pixel-peeping type of crowd.
But let’s look at the equipment they offer. Both devices are equipped with two cameras on the back, only 4x12MP. They are also in the same usual + telephoto configuration – without ultra-modern or monochrome between the two. All four cameras are equipped with stabilized optics.
Samsung this year caught up with Apple and offers video recording of 4K at a speed of 60 frames per second, and also gives you the opportunity to use the H.265 codec for data storage. 1080p / 240fps slo-mo was not in the S8 specification, but S9 + also sets the field with the iPhone here. In fact, no – S9 + one-ups iPhone X in the slo-mo. Naturally, this is called “Super” slo-mo and records with a resolution of 960 frames per second with a resolution of 720p with an automatic launch and a lightweight GIF-descendant.
On the other hand, none of them brought any tangible improvements to the suicide game. So, probably, this means that the Galaxy is ahead of the iPhone? Probably, but the update on this cannot hurt.
