Samsung Galaxy S7 vs Galaxy S6 – camera comparison

s7vss6

One of the main improvements in Galaxy S7 compared to its predecessor the camera. The new model sports a 12MP rear camera, which for some may not seem like an upgrade considering that the Galaxy S6 had a 16MP shooter. However, this year’s flagship boasts bigger pixels (1.4 µm vs 1.12 µm) and f/1.7 aperture, which is superior to Galaxy S6’s f/1.9. Anyway, we’re again presented with a couple of neat features such as fast autofocus, 4K video recording and a lot of manual settings and shooting modes in the camera menu. Aside from the raw comparison of the specs of both devices, we’ve also prepared a couple of sample shots so you can see the actual difference in the photo quality. The photos taken with the Galaxy S7 are on the left while the ones from the Galaxy S6 are on the right.
