Camera comparison: Galaxy S8 vs the Galaxy S7

For a long time now, Samsung has been at the top of its game when it comes to smartphone cameras. The Galaxy S7 had the best overall phone camera on the market for quite a long time, and with the Galaxy S8, Samsung has made minor changes to further improve the quality of images captured by the 12-megapixel rear camera. We’ve talked in detail about the Galaxy S8′s camera in our official review, but we haven’t yet talked about how it compares to its predecessor. Well, we’ve decided we’ll just let the pictures do the talking.

The photos you see below were taken in auto mode (with HDR set to auto as well); we didn’t reach for the pro mode for any picture, as we feel most folks simply use their phones as a point-and-shoot camera instead of fiddling around with advanced settings. What we should point out here is the Galaxy S7′s camera still holds its own more than a year later, especially in daylight. Nighttime is where the Galaxy S8 leads the way, doing better with detail and color. The colors in low-light shots aren’t perfect on the S8, either, as they look too white compared to their real-life counterparts. But again, it does better at night compared to the S7, and part of the reason for that is no doubt the new multi-frame processor on the S8.

Well, enough talk. Go ahead and enjoy the pictures below (photos from the S8 are on the left while the S7′s images are on the right), and let us know what you think!

Note: We’re aware that it’s a bit hard to see the differences between two images without being able to see them in a bigger format. We’re working on adjusting our site to fix this, so that our camera comparisons are more useful than they might be right now for some folks.
