After the release of the flagship smartphone Galaxy S20 Ultra, pictures taken on its camera have already been repeatedly shown on the network. A more detailed study of the novelty was undertaken by the journalists of the PhoneArena publication, who compared its shooting capabilities with the results of a photo shoot made on the Apple iPhone 11 Pro Max.
Pictures on smartphones were performed automatically using the default settings. The quality of photos in daylight, comparison authors noted as equally high, however, the Apple smartphone showed slightly warmer shades.
As for portrait shots, when you turn on special modes on both smartphones (Live Focus on Samsung and portrait mode on iPhone), the background blur effect is clearly pronounced on both models. In addition, as the author of the photos noted, the detail during portrait shooting with the “apple” smartphone was slightly higher.
When testing the zoom capabilities, the journalists unanimously awarded the Samsung smartphone, which demonstrated a convincing advantage over the competitor, in the competition.
When shooting in low light conditions, both devices demonstrated the ability to take high-quality photos, while in the first pictures with iPhone, the picture is less realistic, and Samsung shows the best white balance.
