    well i love the camera quality and performance of this phone.. camera is pretty awesome for me.. m a cinematographer so i pushed this camera to extreme limits and it's great.. :)

    my point is that S9+ camera was A LOT better in that situations, you could take a very quick picture without getting it blurred, low light pictures come a lot better, the Note 8/S9+ does have optical zoom, S9+ focus a lot faster. I'm not expecting miracles just don't say they're "nearly the same" for taking two pictures with good lighting and holding the phone several seconds, some even with both hands and tapping on screen to focus

    you must be kidding bro, i just bought the phone 3 days ago, and i can say those are the best rear and back camera i have ever used so far !

    Well the 6 has a 20 mp rear camera and the 5t has a 16 mp rear camera. 6 also has a better apperature and optical image stabilization.

    i really doubt that.
    i can't deny it because I don't have an s9 to compare it to. but so far performance was admirable, both in daylight and low light situations.
    I had no issues focusing. it's fast and responsive. photos are crisp.

    like I said, I can't compare to the s9, but I can compare with mid range cameras, and the difference is barely noticed (aside from the bokeh) when taking snapshots. And please don't tell me that the puny s9+ camera is better than a contemporary APS-C sensor with a kit prime lens.

    ah I see, I didn't see the S9 part. I'd say for the 300 difference in price tags it'd have to have a fair few differences.

    low light can often get a good flash assist focus.

    for me though I've not had an S9 to try, but I use a lot of cameras so I'd generally struggle between phone cameras as there are very minor differences, or slightly varied features.

    best to always choose what works best of course.

    I've never said S9+ has the best camera in the world or is the best phone, in fact I am enjoying my OP6 and I am selling my S9+. Camera on OP6 is good enough but for me I would not say they're on the same level or "nearly the same". Here are some pictures at the exact same moment, same lighting, point and shoot. OP6 on right hand and S9+ on left hand:

    Can you figure which photos are taken with phone 1 and which photos are taken with phone 2?

    likely the 1st bunch are Op6 due to the dot cloud method of noise the two different sensors

    and which one do you think are better? or are they at about the same level?

    P. S. The pics of the boiler in normal lighting conditions don't look that different but for the two with the worst lighting conditions I added to the same dropbox link the S9+ originals for fair comparison but also uploaded with auto filter, I know you can edit the OP6 pictures as well on a special software but it is not just one tap away

    pretty samey tbh, there's some missing focuses, and noise differences. the biggest too I'd like to see are these

    obviously optical zoom wins over digital anyday.

    the car badge is an interesting one

    are you able to post the file info for these?

    iso, shutter etc

    I see what you mean. The numbers just don't add up however. 1200 vs 6400 ISO. That's more than 2 f stops. math just doesn't add up. it's weird. I'll go to the shop to do some experiments.

    you can download them, then look at the details in the gallery app. exif is all there

    Yeah that's true but I just wanted those for everyone to see. I just assumed the iso and most everything else would be wildly different too.

    some bench tests would be great, same shot, on tripod, manual focus, same settings, auto settings and general metered exposure.

    for the user though I can see his point

    in low light you'd have to set the flash to auto just to get a focus assist.

    an option for that with flash off would be a great addition to non flash.

    here's what I don't get. I'm now in the kitchen, with light coming only from another room. it's dark. very dark. is never make a photo in such conditions without a tripod. here is how op6 dealt with it
    1528504113825.jpg
    Max iso, faster shutter than with the Mazda in the garage. so the garage had less light?

    i got my G7x, and with f/1.8 i could do the same exposure with just 1250 ISO.

    so is the s9 camera the same brightness as a G7x with a much bigger sensor?

    something ain't right.

    that's a fair point and maybe to do with algorithms and the two cameras working together.

    aren't they different final length on the s9+? how would the wide angle lens get more info about frame edges?

    That I wouldn't have a clue but I found this pretty interesting

    just took my canon 70d and 16-36mm F4L lens

    took relatively same shot and after zooming the window is far clearer edges on the one plus, which is why I feel the 2nd Lens'play part somehow, algorithmically.

    this must account for the S9 too despite different focal lengths

    obviously here we know different sensor sizes gives different focal a lengths

    ie my 70d is apsc (crop factor x1.6)
    whatever I shot at (35?) should be 1.6x that length.

    with cameras on phones that must be a crazy math work there as both the lens and sensors are tiny as hell.

    which could be why we're getting such different variables with our other cameras

    I ain't a photographer, I never said I went to pro mode and took the best possible shot with each device that would take an eternity and two hands, I had one device on each hand and was comparing QUICK POINT AND SHOOT.

    It's your reading skills that are the worst.

    The OP6 camera IS the worst out of S9+, Pixel 2 XL and iPhone X.

    Get over it like I did and just use your phone, the camera is above average but not the best, if you're seriously pissed because your midranger has not the best camera and try to lie to yourself to justify your purchase that's pathetic
