One of the advantage that the Samsung Galaxy S8 has compared to its predecessor is that it brings an Electronic Image Stabilization (EIS) in 4K video recording. In the Galaxy S7 edge there was an EIS option, but it wasn't available in UHD/4K, only in resolution below it. Regardless of the rear...

Today I went into a little digging to analyze some Samsung Galaxy S8 sample images and see how well it copes in low-light situations. of course I expect it to perform well, but nevertheless, a felt that I won't count on the S7 performance and see for myself how good the image quality is in low-light...

I was really impressed with the image quality of the sample of the Samsung Galaxy S8 that I've seen on YouTube. When I analyze the image quality, I am usually checking the dynamic range, the color reproduction, the video stabilization, sharpness, image artifacts, low-light performance, how severe is...

Both the rear and front cameras of the Samsung Galaxy S8 feature a F1.7 aperture lens. We usually get to see only one of the cameras having a fast aperture, usually the main one. This time around, Samsung wanted to make sure that both cameras can perform well in low-light. The rear camera has an...

Today I've spent quite a lot of time viewing high-res Galaxy S8 camera samples. There are plenty of them on the web right now and many phone reviewers are doing a comparison to see how the Galaxy S8 primary camera matches the S7/S7 edge, LG G6 and iPhone 7. In this post I want to share with you my...

Supports RAW image files for the rear camera

The Samsung Galaxy S8 camera supports RAW image files. Which means that you can shoot and save images in an unprocessed manner and edit them later using Raw conversion software and photo editing software of your choice. This gives you more control over the end results.

The rear camera of the Samsung Galaxy S8 phone features a 1/2.55" sensor with 1.4-micron pixels. If you are a tech savvy, you probably already know that larger pixels contribute to better image quality and better low-light performance. The S8 camera sensor is relatively large, it's off 1/2.55-type....

The Samsung Galaxy S8 rear-facing camera features one of these two sensors, either the S5K2L2 ISCOCELL from System SLI, a Samsung's subsidiary, or the Sony IMX333 sensor. According to a post posted by 萌萌的电教 on Twitter, Samsung approves the detail. Here is the Tweet with the camera specifications...

The Samsung Galaxy S8 comes with 8MP F1.7 front-facing camera. The Galaxy S7 has a 5MP F1.7 camera in comparison. I've checked out the S8 front camera sample images taken by gsmarena and I was very impressed with what I've seen. The image quality is just superb. It looked like it was taken with a...

The Samsung Galaxy S8 comes with a 12MP 1/2.5" Sony IMX260 Exmor RS sensor. This sensor has a 1.4-micron pixels, a f/1.7 lens and comes with dual-pixel PDAF system and an optical image stabilization system. So the same great sensor found in the S7 and S7 edge. For me the not so good news is that I...

The Samsung Galaxy S8 rear camera has really good optics, but I wasn't pleased with the the image quality in the corners of the frame. I've gone over many sample images and observed the image quality (mainly the sharpness) in the edges of the frame. Usually when you look at the center or when...

The Samsung Galaxy S8 is capable of recording slow motion videos in 720p at 240fps frame rate. This is really not great news. I think that many people, including myself, hoped for a much faster frame rate considering the powerful processor utilized in this phone. Just for comparison, Sony's latest...

I was quite disappointed when I first saw that the Samsung Galaxy S8 comes with a single rear-facing camera. I thought that Samsung will follow the dual-lens camera trend and will introduce the S8 with a dual-lens camera. I personally would have preferred a second ultra-wide angle lens so I can...

No HDR and video effects in QHD resolution

I think it's because of the intense processing needed to apply it, so both video effects and HDR (rich tone) aren't available while recording in QHD resolution. It would have been great to have HDR in 4K.

I've just seen a camera sample video taken by Max Lee with the Samsung Galaxy S8 rear-facing camera. I am aware that this is a pre-production model, but I've noticed rolling shutter (jello effect). This was very noticeable in that particular sample video and it was quite shaky. From my...
