I'd love to see a test like this with the Sony a6500!
It's supposed to be the fastest autofocus in the world.
One of the reasons samsung does better is because its sensor is 1/20th the size the canon 70d. This means 70d has a way higher depth of field and hence it's harder for it to focus. It still does pretty well compared to other bigger sensor cameras.
As for low light image quality. If you put on a f1.8 lens on the 70d you;ll get way brighter video. So yea, the comparison in low light is completely pointless.

A nice landscape shot, you definitely don't need a DSLR for that. Sometimes even lower light when modern software merges pictures to keep the picture sharp and the ISO low. That's awesome stuff and modern smartphones can get a lot out of that tiny sensor. For sure not as much as a DSLR with the right setting and senses can deliver, I know that quite well but fur jsut running around and taking pictures in automatic mode, you don't need a DSLR, the phone will do just fine and sometimes even better ;)
Senseless comparison, might even be paid...comparing a smartphone sensor to a much larger sensor DSLR, with different characteristics most important depth of field is pointless.
Wouldn't be surprised if Samsung isn't quietly funding these supposed 'comparisons', and the fact that a reputed site like GSM Arena is acknowledging such useless articles bodes bad.

I want to shoot whatever iso/f-stop/shutter speed I feel necessary depending on the scene, slr is better at all levels. There are so many things wrong with this comparison, it's pathetic.
Anonymous, 08 Mar 2016Your eyes are the problem.... Get them checked. Thank me laterGo read about "closest focusing distance", undestand it completely, then look at this pointless comparison where the lens was used at the wide end and then have YOUR eyes checked...
Sorry but I dont like the model, He looks like a son of a chinese Drug Lord. Anyway thanks for the effort of showing how great the s7 is. :D

In a Smartphone with its crap sensor with fixed aperture and crap glass, AF is the least important problem.
Looks much better video than my Samsung S5 can do ....... I may have to upgrade :)
firstly, I use Samsung so nothing against them. the phone's autofocus may be faster and may have a better quality, but wait until you print it. the phone was compared to the 70D as if it's a point and shoot camera. people, that's a DSLR, not a point and shoot camera. pair it with a lens with a larger aperture, let's say f1.8, and you'll see what you're looking for. how about fast moving objects, can your phone's shutter capture an image at 4000 times faster of a second? how about at a shutter speed of 30 seconds for low-light landscape/portrait photography? if you are not aware what really DSLRs are capable of, even the cheap ones, then you better not compare a DSLR with a phone like the latter can really replace it, okay?

Because yes you are right, no smartphone yet is on a DSLR ISO 100 level yet. The thing that you probably didn't know is, ISO is there to make a easy comparison between cameras with different sensor sizes. ISO makes different sensor sizes comparable with being not the same. To get the ISO equivalent you have to multiple it with the square of the crop factor. That saying, ISO 100 on a galaxy s7 equals ISO 3600 on a full frame DSLR - but guess what, ISO 100 on a galaxy is less noisie than the dslr on 3600. That means the ISO performance is actually better in the small phone sensor.

I have not seen a single smartphone camera sample that is as clean and sharp as photos from my 8 year old slr, a 12mp canon 450d, at iso 100, never mind higher iso. Smartphone photos are either grainy (noisy) or look like oil paintings (noise reduction) at iso 100, go to higher iso and well, things become truly dreadful.
