Making the camera humb smaller is easy when you make the device 1.1mm thicker... Still small sensor size...

I really dont care about battery and removable things. I like it to be rock solid and nothing removable and I dont want SD CARD shit too. What I need is a sexy phone to showoff and camera which can take best photos
I can't wait to see a photo/video review comparison between S7 , X performance & G5 .
This year's round had some amazing spec'ed camera phones.

They're both on par... moreLow light conditions in particular, I can't really say that they're on par. 6S seems darker and noisier of the same scene that my friend took using 6S Plus vs using my S6. Only thing that looks better to my eyes is its auto white balance on the 6S and dynamic range.
aka42, 22 Feb 2016And still, sony is behind Samsung and Apple in cameraNo, not lagging behind "the camera" per se.
Gone are the days when we use the term "camera" for hardware only.
Now, it's a combination of hardware, software and process.
In terms of hardware (the camera and sensors itself) and process (autofocus techniques, aperture detection, etc), Sony is at par with the rest of current top cams - both Modular (i.e. Smartphone) and stand alone (the actual cameras, etc)
What they're lagging behind is the software. They have yet to master a platform which can compute and process the image fast.
I hope to see as soon as possible a detailed camera/s comparison between the S7 & G5, the 16MP + 8MP of the G5 vs 12MP of S7, & of the front as well, the 5MP of S7 vs 8MP of G5. I hope that GSMArena will do it as soon as they can!!!!!!?
Deja vu with UltraPixel. Same gimmicky promises, only the results will tell.
Anonymous, 22 Feb 2016It didn't even beat the S6 family.It didn't, but neither did the S6 family 'beat' the iPhone 6s Plus camera. They're both on par really, when I was carrying a Note 5 and 6s Plus sometimes the Note would produce the better picture and just as often the iPhone did too.
Anonymous, 22 Feb 2016but where is sony today in the mobile market or tvs ??stop changing the topic.
navvrish, 22 Feb 2016Thinking that it can beat my iPhone 6s plus camera now.... IPhone 6s plus camera is just perfe... mores5 camera is better than iphone 6 splus so dont compare outdated technology to 2015 and 2016
HigherPrimate, 22 Feb 2016Haha, s7 use a Sony custom IMX260 sensor. You should read before posting, without Sony that c... moreSamsung used two different sensors for S6 - Sony IMX240 and Samsung's own ISOCELL sensor. Who knows they might do the same for S7 again with their BRITECELL sensor for later batch.

I like LG G5, galaxy s7 and all sony's designs. For me the biggest disappoint in design was lumia 950. Lumia was the leader in good design and this year they missed it.
