      definitely s8 better in both low light and normal light. seems balanced.

    2. May Czos says:

      S7 is first, S8 is second in every photo.

  2. dutt way says:

    I believe the brighter n more detailed photos are from the s8. The sensor is different. It’s using the imx333 vs Imx260.

    1. X-47B says:

      Not necessarily. In some cases the “brighter” images came from S7. But brightness is not the factor. The detail S8 preserved is way beyond anything S7 did. From what I see here, I am very happy to upgrade to S8,

    2. one plus says:

      in this case, nope. the brighter is from S7, because it is harder to take a dark and detailed photo than a bright but noisy photo/less detail photo.

      the best photo is the one that portrait what you see is what you get.

      s7e = make it brighter than what your eyes actually see
      s8 = make it closer to what your eyes see, dark but detailed
      the rest of rubbish = it dark and no detail

      1. May Czos says:

        Actually, most of brighter pictures were taken by the S8.

  3. X-47B says:

    One has to look at the pixels 1:1 to fully understand the difference. S8 easily has better dynamic range and preserves better details. Good job Samsung!

      Good job sony..

      1. X-47B says:

        Well, S8 will have both Samsung and Sony sensor.

      2. mas921 says:

        Sony makes best sensors all the way to professional Nikon D5

    2. SurgicalTech says:

      The average buyer of a S8 wont look at pixels 1:1, The change is miniscule show these photos to anyone and they will tell you nothing more than one looks “brighter” than the other. You’re obviously trying to justify your purchase.

      1. mas921 says:

        Dynamic range is exactly what an avg buyer calls “brighter” and that’s evidently better without looking 1:1.

      2. X-47B says:

        If you are simpleton, then obviously brighter is better for you. I have nothing more to argue with people like that. Enjoy saving the money, you will need that.

    I believe the darker, colour preserved tone is s8.. If my guess is true, IMO it’s something competitors like Huawei and Sony already did a good job with.. Especially the Leica co-engineered Huawei’s looked more natural to my eyes than the s7.

    1. X-47B says:

      Yes, right. You can check the exif data to find the exact model.
      S7 images look bad now compared to S8.

      1. Dawja Xavier says:

        Oh snap! Haha.. I didn’t expect they retained EXIF datas.

    2. May Czos says:

      Second picture always come from the S8 and most of them are too bright.

      1. Hui says:

        Not all the 2nd pictures are S8, they are random.

  5. fisherman10 says:

    EXIF data available. haha

    1. one plus says:

      sounds like a kid that found a way to cheat. people like you dont do well in exam LMAO!!!!

    2. Andreas Lundin says:

      Do fudging tell! I haven’t got the time to check EXIF data atm but I wanna know 😀

  6. Jay Chew says:

    top photos looks better than bottom ones..so i suppose top is from S8 and S7 are the bottom one?

    1. May Czos says:

      The other way round.

  7. Aisha Kabir says:

    In all the pics one is slightly brighter than the other one. Definitely a very minute difference. The only thing which would make me go for S8 is its bigger screen size.

    1. user99999 says:

      they are kinda mixed. the better images with details preserved and balanced lighting is of s8.

    2. Skywax9016 says:

      I believe, in between the S7 and the S8, I can’t afford both. T-T

  8. Robin P says:

    I always thought that S7 images were superb, but next to S8, they look really bad.. 🙂

  9. May Czos says:

    I’d say it’s a tie. Sometimes the first one is a tad overexposed, sometimes it’s the second one, sometimes they’re identical.

  10. FIST says:

    it’s Tuesday and the info on which is which still hasn’t been released. i’m too lazy to check individual EXIF info

  11. abed haj yihia says:

    so when are they gonna reveal which is which?

  12. Yoda80 says:

    NOT the same sensor, NOT the same lens, NOT the same focal length, NOT the same tuning. Look here the video. A lot of difference!! https://youtu.be/tA7oFbK-ETI
