Epic smartphone camera comparison: Galaxy S8 vs the rest


Yep, we’re doing it. A massive camera comparison with every single high-end flagship smartphone we could get our hands on. Six handsets, seven different tests, and one table.

This is SoyaCincau’s epic flagship smartphone camera comparison. Want to know which flagship smartphone takes the best photos? Well, now you can see and decide for yourself.

There will be six participating smartphones:

1. Samsung Galaxy S8
2. Apple iPhone 7 Plus
3. Huawei P10 Plus
4. ASUS ZenFone 3 Zoom
5. HTC U Ultra
6. Sony Xperia XZs

These phones will be compared in seven different conditions:

1. Sharpness
2. Colour reproduction
3. Dynamic range
4. Low light
5. Macro ability
6. Zoom
7. Selfie

Which handset will reign supreme? Well, that’s where you guys come in. Photography is about as subjective as it gets because everyone’s definition of what makes a good photograph differs. Some might like it more saturated while others might like a more realistic colour profile. Some might prefer a little more post-processing to make the edges of the subject really pop while others might like it less.

I think you get the point.

So, for this test, we will be presenting each photo taken by each phone in each scene to you so you can compare them directly in identical location settings. Once you’ve done that, definitely let us know in the comments below which one was your favourite snapper.

Before we begin, here’s a quick rundown of the specs for each handset’s camera:
