    Good afternoon! Huge greetings from Russia! I recently bought myself an iPhone 12 with 21 ultras. I can say that both phones are great, but from the photo part Samsung made a huge breakthrough absolutely agree with you! Very beautiful places, I love England. You have a very good informative vlog. Thank you very much.

    I mean yeah Samsung wins. But if you take a closer look, it is because they are literally trying so hard and throwing every huge thing they can think of. Where Apple is not even trying so hard and their camera game is always on top 😎

    @05:43 The Iphone12 video footage seems to have some sort of beauty filter that that smooths out pores and moles. Its very obvious in video clips. Everything looks so smothered and clean in the Iphone12 video. It even clips off the edge lines on the cheeks of your beard. If the Iphone12 has a feature to turn off the beauty filter, that makes this video a very unfair comparison.

  • Serenova

    I have a Note20 Ultra that I got at the end of 2020. I got it SPECIFICALLY for the cameras. I take photos for work and having that quality of camera (aka pro mode) in my pocket is invaluable. Over the last few months, they've actually brought a lot of the camera software features from the S21 to the S20 lineup. It'd be interesting to see a comparison on the 20s vs the iPhone. Probably won't happen but it'd be fun to think about! 🤣

  • TheRealIshtar

    Man, i got the s10 and recently the iphone 12 Pro Max (gift from a friend),i did some comparison to show my friends and realized how much better the S10 Photos and videos of both cameras ( frons n back ) looked like. Even if the Iphone has a "little" better low light calculation, i do not thin its worth nearly double the price. In the end Iphone has less apps and all that too ... no idea where the iphone price comes from. ive no idea about s20 and up, but if i already love s10 quality, i bet i would love the newer version if i had the money to buy them XD

    I think it’s important that these camera tests have an image reference to compare against. Ideally, compare the images taken to that of a DSLR. What looks better on one phone is not a true representation of what the human eye is seeing.

    I do love the back camera of samsung. Impressive night mode shooting. Compared this with my iphone 11 pro max. It processes the picture faster too. And yes samsung has more features and options in their camera’s but you simply dont buy a phone just for its camera. Also whatever you say, taking a selfie on a samsung is a freaking nightmare! It just sucks wether as a selfie or a groupie it sucks. But that rear camera is just wow. I still love my samsung. But also Ive had an iphone 7plus since it came out and ive almost never broken it and it has stayed relevant. I dont feel that with my samsung. Also Ip68 on samsung is crap. 2 weeks ago I was swimming in my cousins pool. And i was taking a selfie video underwater, suddenly had a black screen and never turned back on. Ive sent it back to samsung for them to process.

  • Liam Bam

    Samsung is way better on paper but apps are just more smooth with apple. Perfect example is instagram. Simply because apple and instagram has partnerships, instagram lags so much on my s20plus. Just try using instagram on a samsung for atleast 30 mins and you’ll see!

    I would love to go back to iPhone but my experience with my first ever iPhone which was the SE 2nd gen, there were alot of apps i wanted to use that did not support ios and there where a few sites i usually used that didn't support iphones browser and honestly apples policies they have with app devs is not that good, they take more money from them than android and there are app devs that are starting to go away from apple. The whole doing things with a iphone with people who have android is messed up because theres things you cant do with them because they have android. You cant expand memory like most android phones which can (unlike the s21) iphones you cant customize the main ui like move your icons etc. Yes apple supports their phones the longest which is better than android but the features they get which they advertise as new was already on android way before apple. To me theres too much of a hassle having a iphone, now if all my friends had iphones and thats all that was atound me was apple products then yes iphone would be awesome but unfortunately iphones dont play well with others

    Dose the Samsung have raw photo capability? I have the 12 pro max as well as a Mac and a big fan of apple. But I’m kind of curious how the Samsung dose with astrophotography the iPhone dose a pretty good job with its night mode.

    "Samsung this looks better, Samsung that is better... But I have to admit that the Iphone wins this one" Wins this one how? Wins being the worse?

    • TheDeathmail

      Samsung still won and I realized my other comment was talking way too much sh*t that was unnecessary. But the point was, that in the areas that mattered, iPhone won because it was better in the areas people would need. That's why each point that iPhone won was given.
