This technology shows its qualities only when natural light outside (solar) is strong. In closed rooms, you have to have strong neon lamps. For the human eye to differentiate between classic and this process is hardly noticeable. The improvements are minor. But the price is higher for this technology. In conclusion, do not deserve, until they resolve those issues by improving this technology.... not worth the asking price.
Almand, 22 Feb 2016If so why did Samsung decide to use a sony sensor on this s7?!Is that why Samsung manages to get better results with Sony sensors than Sony themselves?
Removable battery and smaller size option. This is what I was hoping for...

And yes, Samsung will probably have a very good camera. I had the galaxy s6 for some months last year and I was very satisfied with its camera. But also I had the galaxy s5 and was not satisfied at all. Only because it is from Samsung, that doesn't mean it has to be a good camera. It's much likely the case but we should stay with our facts that we have. Samsung didn't do any magic with the camera hardware, now let's accept it as it is and wait for the results....

The sensor is SMALLER than the one in the nexus line, therefore the aperture is a f/1.85 equivalent on a sensor in the nexus lines size.
Actually we have a slightly wider aperture from 2.0 to 1.85 but therefore slightly smaller pixel size.
I wouldn't call that a new level...
Anonymous, 22 Feb 2016s5 camera is better than iphone 6 splus so dont compare outdated technology to 2015 and 2016The Galaxy S5 camera is only decent. The iPhone 6s is much faster and far more consistent. My Lumia 830 consistently destroys the Galaxy S5 in similar situations at both speed and quality.
GrazzaD, 22 Feb 2016Deja vu with UltraPixel. Same gimmicky promises, only the results will tell.The Nexus 6P and Nexus 5X show that this set up can work very well. Samsung just took it to a new level, with a larger sensor, wider aperture, and OIS.
Welp, time to get an S7 (S7 Edge that is, sh*ty design on the normal one). Time to give the premium priced handsets another try, even though my UMI eMAXX does whatever I need, it does have some features missing like the full range of of LED sensors for Light Flow, and light sensor etc. Some applications don't install either.
The bang for buck I get with the £109 phone really makes me ask myself if it's really worth getting an S7, when I could just get a good camera and keep my current phone instead, but I do miss Multi Window on Samsung. Iİl probably still get the S7 Edge
